I am running 1mm droop front and 5 mm droop rear.

Let me try the spool because my other problem is the car gets unstable with one-way when I brake.

jontang001, its an adjustment not too many people play with. I have tried alot of different shock adjustments at many different tracks. The effect of rebound directly impacts the way the car handles bumps and negotiates quick switchbacks(aka shicanes). I have found the more rebound i use, makes the car more responsive/aggresive but can handle bumpy tracks much better, less rebound the opposite is true. The reason why rebound works best for bumps is rebound keeps the tire in contact with the track after you hit a bump, the longer you car stays in contact with the track the more stable it is. As for shicanes your car needs to change directions quickly, so with alot of rebound your car will be able to transfer the weight L/R quicker with assitance from the rebound. For me i almost always run full rebound just because i like a responsive car and if there is any inperfections in the track my car will keeps its composure. Hope this was not to confusing!
Thanks. Will do. However any suggestions on how to pick which setup? There are quite a few and I am not familar with their driving style and tracks...

Hi,

Would like to enquire if the TRF Dampers (Part # 42102) the same as the dampers provided in the TRF 416 car kit?

If there is a difference, whats the diff?

Thanks.

ahh... well the fancy blue transponder is an MRTCustom iPT. My old AMB stopped working, so I had it cloned, and now have two iPT's, one in the tourer and one in my mini, both running off the same number

However, I believe the iPT has now been superseeded by the MRT PTX (details here). Best bet is to ask Terry S over in the PTX thread on here, or send him an email via mail(at)team-mrt.com.

HiH

I don't believe so, as MRT can supply the PTX with 10 or 20 pre-programmed numbers to select. Very clever little device

Default left right balance

hi guys i've been recently having trouble with the balance of the car. It would be able to turn left very smoothly , but turning right it would hook more suddenly and oversteer. My electronics are , KO2413 low profile servo, normal spektrum receiver, TC sphere esc ,a novak 13.5 and EP4200 6 cell pack.

i checked the alignment of the wheels, droop and tweak, so the car is mehanically in good order. Steering throw is also the same left to right. I initially thought that since the battery side was more 'front' heavy it would grip harder and snap to the right due to that, but i was wrong. I tested the car with just a 4cell pack (moved to the rear most position) and still the car snapped to the right harder than the left. Then i ended up placing 100g of lead behind the 4cell pack ( on the right side to balance the motor) and this made the feel of the car neutral from left to right.

Back to the 6cell with 100g behind the batteries and the car would snap right again

Sorry to bog it all down like this but my question is do any of you guys experience anything similar? if so how do you get around it?

Thanks
