Hi Paul, Can you give me a ball park rollout for 1/12 with the Duo 2 10.5 on 1S, with Speed Passion esc. Also where would you set can timing and esc timing??
Thanks,
Tim

A good starting point would be 74T spur, 38T pinion. That for sure won't heat up the motor, then you can work from there. Hope that helps.

No problem. I would like to take credit, but Arun from nexusracing.com helped to make sure I didn't burn up my motor when I got my 12th scale. Now that's customer service

I would moove some weight back in the car, lean the rear shocks all the way in, reduce your rear camber to .5deg and put your front camber at 2.5 for starters. these 4 changes should really help. i think the trick to asphalt is to get the car to carry corner speed, I have had good asphalt cars that push but are still fast.

try that stuff.


Thanks
Hi Paul,
I tried those settings you suggested but they made no difference. It appears I have a unique problem. No matter what setup change I make, the car understeers and holds very little corner speed.

For instance I had the 2.8 springs on the front and the 2.6 on the back. I swapped them around so the 2.8s were on the back and the 2.6s on the front and it still understeered, the rear end wouldnt even step out.

I tried someone elses xray shocks with 400wt oil in them and it made no difference (in case my shocks were playing up)

I had other people check my droop, ride height, steering geometry etc to see if I was doing something wrong there but it all checked out.

Any idea of what I could be doing wrong to cause this problem? I had a HB Cyclone previously that did the same thing, the xray does the same thing for me so I assume its something I am doing wrong.

Thanks for your help

Lately my car has been like that, Everything is working properly, no bent or damaged parts, drivetrain is all smooth and free (diffs and driveshafts included), new tyres running on asphalt. Running a T2 008 with the starting rubber setup on it. I tried many changes to the car but none had a decent impact on the cars handling which is making it hard to get around the track quickly.

Thanks
Josh
Solved my undertseer problem by;

1. Raising the front roll center (arms closer to the chassis)
2. Softer front anti roll bar
3. Lowering rear droop (somehow this allowed the front to roll more)
4. Extend ackermaan setting at servo saver

Try them. May or may not work for you...

Im no Paul (Im much better looking) but sounds like you might have a radio or servo setup EPA adjustment out of wack.

On the other hand, I once heard someone say that if everything you change doesnt make a difference, its a tire issue. Mount up a new set and see if that changes anything.

Cyanyde, if you moved the hingepins closer to the chassis you lowered the front roll center.

I set my EPA's so that steering blocks just touch the chubs. I have also tried running less lock, no difference.

I tried new tyres aswell, no difference again. Even foam tyres dont help it.

Thanks for the input guys, I will take all the help I can get

Are you accidentaly using a whole bunch of "push control"? That would keep the car from ever taking a good set going into a corner that requires lifting the throttle.

The speedy is set to the standard profile (LRP TC spec). I have tried different motors and speedies, I also tried different servo's aswell.
