Default LiPo

Jason - can you confirm that the SMC LiPo saddle pack will fit in the lipo tray?

Dimensions are:
length = 2.655
Width = 1.790
Tall = 1.025

Thanks

The SMC lipo is sitting in my car right now. It does require a tall battery mounting kit that i am working on. I will shoot some pics and post them today. I will have the mounting kit ready in about a week.

Here is my carpet setup.

Here is what i run on my 10R

Front:
5 degree castor blocks with shims centered on upper arm(4 degree castor)
.020 linear front springs
5000 wt. diff oil on the kingpins
4mm ride height and .5mm front droop
2 degrees camber
0 toe
servo on angled mount
2X pink front tires cut to 2.100

Rear:
Standard flex plates with no set screws installed
10,000 wt in tubes
silver(stock center spring)
35 wt. oil in shock
batteries in back position
1mm pod droop
2X pink rear tires cut to 2.100
4mm ride height

I used a C6 corvette body and i sauced the full rear tire and 1/2 the inside front. The Lilac tires shouldnt make the setup much different. I would start here and see how it goes.

Thanks,
Jason

Thanks Jason

When running Lilac all the way around I have found that I need to sauce about 3/4 of the front tire. That may be the tuning option depending on local track conditions.

Jason - what are the shur lube equals for 5000wt and 10000wt diff lubes?

FastForward - The kit works well all you need is a very thin peice of foam to keep the battery from moving around in the tray.

I had the car out last night for some carpet time and made the adjustments to try and get rid of it carrying the inside front tire through a corner. It was better, but was still doing it. My ride height is at 5.5 rear and 5 front, it looks like the rear of the chassis/front of the pod has been dragging. I'm not sure how ling that has been going on, I just noticed it last night. What am I doing wrong here?

I would take your front springs off and make sure the front end is not binding. Next, make sure that the pod is level at ride height. Check all 4 corners of the pod. Once you have this all taken care of, Check to make sure you have some pod droop. You want about 1-1.5mm of uptravel over ride height.

What are you using for side dampening?

I didn't see where you mentioned your tire sizes. They need to be down around 2.15 front and rear.

Looking at the car sitting at ride height on a tweak board with my calibrated eyeball the pod looks to be level. I had 10,000wt in the tubes at first but went up to 35,000 just as a test. I was curiouse how exactly to set rear pod droop. I had moved the shock from the front mounting hole to the rear and did not see a whole lot of change. I made the shock longer to add some droop, but do not know how to measure the droop on the pod. I will check the front end tonight also, but it does not seem to be binding.

What's the best way to go about setting rear pod droop? I'm gonna be at the track this sunday and want to try and have the car pretty much set before I get there. I hope I can get this problem figured out I had a blast with this car outside, but on carpet it's killin me.

The way to check and set pod droop is like this:

Set your ride height 1st and set the pod to level at all 4 corners of the pod. I do this by using a ride height guage and checking the 4 corners of the pod and making them all the same by adjusting the spring collar. use my setting from the set up i posted on here. Now you want to take your ride height guage and make sure it is 4mm at the back of the chassis plate(either side). Now lift the car by the top pod pivot ball area until you feel the shock piston bottom out in the body just before the wheels leave the ground. With this lifted recheck the ride height. The difference between the ride height and ride height while lifted is your amount of pod droop. I like it to be about 1-1.5 mm.
