Default Re: R2 English manual

Someone posted a link to the European version of R2 (Triox ??) in this thread, which has a English manual. Search for Triox.

If there's room we all may be at the same table I'm sure.
Mike,

You and Ling should try and get the same table so it'll be easier for me to find you guys I have a display booth this year at the Reedy Race so most likely I'll be pitting at the booth (so I can wrench and answer any questions the racers might have there)

I said that at first too but I have a sheet of the glitter carbon fiber i use as a setup board and it really is cool. You should reconsider.

BMI is working on making one in a month or two. The Yoke SD is coming and then the Cuda.

Hebiki,
Here's what I posted a month ago:

Front
1.5 x 6.25 spring (17.09 lb/in), outer hole on arm and outer hole on shock tower.
30 wt oil with HPI #2 piston.
No swaybar
SPEEDTECH Prototype Spool
mid-span arms

Rear:
1.4 x 5.5 (15.69 lb/in) spring, outer hole on arm, 4th hole (counting from the outside) on the shock tower.
1.0 mm swaybar.
30 weight oil.
rear arm mounts raised 2 mm.
mid span arms.


The light front oil really lets the car dive in hard with a spool and the raised rear blocks lets the car rotate better during "rolling off throttle" corners. On-power steering was just plain silly with a spool. I can't figure out why, but the car carried a little more cornerspeed with the front swaybar off??

Default Spool setup part II:

Here's a revised setup I used at Speedworld last weekend. I was searching for even more corner entry speed with a spool. So-far I'm 2 wins out of 2 tires at Speedworld racing 19 turn.

Front
Rear shock tower used in front (minor dremeling to remove body mount holes from interfering).
Associated Silver spring (13.89 lb/in), outer hole on arm and outer hole on shock tower.
30 wt oil with HPI #2 piston.
No swaybar
SPEEDTECH Prototype Spool
mid-span arms
Front arm mounts lowered by mounting them upside down with a small diameter .8mm washer.
Yokomo 0 deg offset spindles used.

Rear:
1.4 x 5.5 (15.69 lb/in) spring, outer hole on arm, 4th hole (counting from the outside) on the shock tower.
1.0 mm swaybar.
30 weight oil.
rear arm mounts raised 1 mm.
mid span arms.

thanks ling. i want a few base setups for mid traction asphalt tracks.

the R3 was sick today at the OC Circuit parking lot race. missed 24 laps by 1:38 seconds for stock sedan. mod sedan guys did 26 laps in 5:05. gotta get keep wrenching on this car and i know it'll get better.

A couple things to try with a Spool:

Lowering the front arm mounts by mounting the pillowballs upside down makes the car grip harder in the front.

The Yokomo 0 deg offset spindles are practically a direct fit (a little sanding needed). The tie-rod hole is exactly in-between the holes on the Cuda spindle. For the R2 driver, it gives the car less ackerman which makes the car twitchier immediately off center and harder to drive initially. However, a benefit is a huge reduction in "chatter" that the spool tends to create.
With the R3, I would stick with the stock cuda spindles and use the forward hole.

R2 rear blocks or R3 rear blocks??? I tried both and the R2 rear blocks give more mid corner steering. The R3 blocks are more fitting for a 1-way.

Rear diff setting: I use Acer ceramic balls. These allow for a really "loose" feeling, but with little to no slip. This adds to less hesitation during the the chassis rotation.

Good luck!

-Ling
