one thing when u put the JB weld on there, make sure you remove the excess before it sets up. It gets as hard as a rock. Also you may need to run a dremel across the top of the ball just to make sure its smooth.

I did get to run the car tonight. Much better with the hub lowered. Also, i ran the inner part of the link in the middle inner and lower inner holes. The middle inner was much better. This sort of leads me to believe that you may be able to run the front mount stock and just move the rear up and down to suit you. We shall see.
Maybe now i can get around to testing shock positions.

Rob, if you end up having durability problems, I believe Yokomo makes 5.7 mm balls that are threaded. Not sure how the jb weld will hold in your application. Super Duper!

Hey is anybody running rubber on carpet?
I ran my car on rubber with Sorex 28r/red HPI. I started with the white springs and worked up. The toss up was between light blue and blue springs. I think i was a bit overdampened at 35 wt losi oil. Also, I ditched the rear swaybar, and it made the car rotate a bit more. The track was setup with like 5-6 foot lanes, so it may not be what everybody needs.

I tracked my laptimes with an Orion lapcounter (NICE). The car felt the best with the blue springs, shocks stood up. It was a little faster with light blue springs and the front shock laid in 2 holes (13.8 vs 14.1 for fastest).

If anybody else has some thoughts please post here. Especially if you race asphalt, since that's coming soon.

In America on carpet we run foam as small as 55mm. Rollout changes, gear up.

wow, this thread is out of date! Anyway, Has anyone been testing on asphalt? My first time out was a total mess, but I think i'm getting it together now. My car is working pretty decent. If anyone can give any ideas on what to try let me know.

BTW, i asked Arthur from Integy for some general setup help. He sent me the following, which was very helpful.
***The dark blue springs comes with the car works good, we run 6.5mm:F and 7mm:R ride height. [lower ride height would cause the car to bottom out] Shock oil 20 to 25 for more steering. 40 weight for less steering. Front inner camber link, middle or lower inside. Rear inner camber link, middle or lower outside. Rear hub use the middle camber hole. Use the outside rear hub
camber link only for large track w/o 180. Built the shock with the longest possible shock shaft length for a lot of droop. 0.5 to 1 degree front camber, 1 to 1.5 degree rear camber. [very important] Use Dremel to grind the inside spring so it doesn't bind against spring cups or collars. Use metal diff in the rear for hot outdoor, plastic diff won't holdup that well and cause spin out. Also, in order to make the diff lock with min
pressure...you need to sand the diff rings surface with a fine metal type sand paper. Use a lot of stealth lube and your diff should lock and feel very very smooth. You can make it even smoother and lock better with Losi 3/32 carbide diff balls.***

So here's what i came up with:
Front
shock mount: outer-tower outer-arm
camber rod: middle inner
toe out: 1*
camber : 0.5*
blue spring
30 wt oil Losi
2mm uptravel
6.5mm ride ht

Rear
shock mount: 2nd from outer-tower outer-arm
camber rod: middle lower-tower middle/bottom row - hub
toe in: 2*hub
camber: 1*
blue spring
25 wt oil Losi
4mm uptravel
7mm ride
(ran car high per Arthur, seemed to be fine.)

24 sorex (cold night) 28 should work in day - HPI red insert
Protoform stratus

steering link 19mm
wheelbase: stock
double one way
10x2 Peak Aurora base motor 120/35

That was a long one!
