Is the set on your website? I didn't see it. Do you have any suggestions on the rear skipping? The front is planted but the rear is skipping sideways. It's not spinning out, but it does make me slow down more than I would like.

EDIT: I found the Moulded set I think, DB2015. I was looking for a machined set.

The front end spacers are under accessories. They should be on the 2nd page of that section.


It sounds like the damper fluid in your tubes may be a little too thick. Try going a little thinner until the car smoothes out and you should be good.

Thanks Jason, I had 10,000 in them before and switched to 7,000. I'll try 5,000 and see how that goes. I already know 3,000 is too thin. You don't sell the machined adjusters in a set do you?

Just finished building mine, quality is excellent as usual.
Hope to get it on the track this weekend weather permitting.

The saddle pack is nice but on the tall side. The max amps 4000 pack is perfect and not very expensive.

No prob mate , good things come to those who wait

J,
two words.....
FREAKING RAD....Yea back to the 80's
I had mine out just as a practice as no one else had their's out.
I also posted in the Ko Propo Grand Prix thread about maybe a expedition class for it. You know since its a month after IIC and it gets a little more exposer.

Now about how she ran...
Well I didn't realize how responsive my KO servo was until one corner and broke the battery adjuster...So be looking for my order...LOL
But she was easy as pie to drive and drive fast with 13.5LRP and 4 cell. I thought on really high bit tracks a 10.5 would be really fun.
I had only RC4Less Pinks front and rear and used Niftech for 45minutes before...had lots of traction...Only thing I have to play with now is exit speed, I feel like I am scrubbing a little (but you know a little each corner is alot) kind of like I need a little more rear bite, but only a touch cause too much more and the front would get out of wack IMHO...Any thoughts.

If we can get this class at KO Grand Prix that would be dialed. If you know Robert at KO or Billy at Speedworld, maybe a little hint.... Yea I would pay a little fee extra for a qual and a main...

Glad you had fun dude. I went to 5 degree blocks on mine and 6 degrees of castor. Car steers all through the corner and really stands out from the rest.

At worst i'll just run in practice and between there rounds on my own
If they are tangling with you, tell them to move out of the way because a faster car is coming through.

Hey Shookie what body did you go with your BMI? I am going to try to make it to bcr this weekend for a couple of hours but I am not 100% sure yet, hopefully I can make it for more test runs.

Hi guys, just to let you know that I have my brand new 10R here in the house and will start to build it over the next few days. Any hints and tips for building? Castor blocks, ride height , etc? Thanks in adavance and I'll put some pics on here once it's done! Cheers, Chris.

I did this at my track last season. I broke my TC in practice before qualifying and didn't have the part I needed. I did happen to have my 10L3t handy so I asked the race director if I could just run it for no points. He told me to disconnect my transponder, not to overtake anyone and let people by. I only over took people when they crashed and ended up sitting right up the arse of the guy who was leading the qualifier for about 3-4 laps. We were laughing about it on the driver's stand but he was starting to get a little pissed so I backed off. Obviously I started in last place in the 'D' main and the race director let me reconnect my transponder but I had to abide by the previous rules of not overtaking anyone and having to let people by. Despite the no overtaking and stopping for 30-40 seconds I finished 3rd or 4th and about 2 laps down.

Most all of the building tips are in the instructions. I like to run the 5 degree blocks. They felt better to me. I run my ride height at 4mm for smooth tracks and 5-5.5mm for bumpy tracks. I dont run a split with tire such from front to rear. On asphalt i start them at 2.250 and carpet i start them at 2.100.

Make sure you have a drill bit or reamer to do the steering knuckles, some of the BMI's i have sold, the guys musta glanced past this part and the front suspension has been binding on them.

There is no reason to. Just let it sit on the pivot ball. If you ream the knuckles, it does nothing but ease the assemble of sliding them on the kingpins, and give you a ton of play.
