Hu guys!
To start of with, use standart front springs.
I use 3 degree block or 6 degree block with medium caster.
(depends on traction)
Use the long upper arm.

Rear:
- thin t-bar
- red center spring
- 30 wt oil in center shock
- 800 st oil in side shock (as in kit)
- start of with soft tweak
- if car is nervous or lifting wheels go to harder tweak
- use rear cell position (if traction toll go up front)

Hope this helps.

P.S.: Tires rear Jaco yellow or doublepink
Tries front Jaco lilac or double pink

Did you try to use 1/8"(3,175mm) balls instead of 3mm in spur gear?
I would try but do not have time. I think it could work better.

Hi there, got my car, built it, tryed it. Third battery my T-bar broke. Is this something to get used to? We have an open track with cornerdots. No walls to hit. The T-bar broke straight of thru the holes for the screws of the rear pivotball.
Then I wonder about the tweakparts, what is an god start? My car felt a bit "square" in corners. I would like a car that "rolls" thru corners to make a round corner. Tried to move the "tweaksled" rearwards and felt the car worked better on our lowgrip carpet?? Shouldīnt it be the opposite?

Best regards

Hi Stefan!
Well....not all the time a soft tweak is good on low grip. If the track is very open corner speed is high and the car moves a lot. Than a harder tweak could be better.

Make sure you play around with hardness of side damping. Usually when I stiffen up the tweak, I stiffen up the damping a little too.

Thanks Marcus
I will try these things as soon as I get hold of a new T-bar!!
Refering to side damping I asume I try different oils for the damper. The 800 oil in the kit, is this a hard or light oil for side damping?

Best regards
Stefan

Itīs a god thing itīs so good looking that car, then I can just look at it and be satisfied.
We only drive indoors on sundays, and it looks that I wont get a new T-bar for this weekend. Maby I can change oil in the damper instead

Hi, I've just got my car. I wonder which servo I can use in this car. I've tried my Futaba 9650, but it did'nt fit.

So I hope anyone can help me to tell which servo I can use
