The reason for reaming the steering block for the king pin is because sometimes in a hard impact the king pin will get pushed up and if it is tight it will get stuck that way and cause tweak in the front end as the spring will have pre-load. If it moves smoothly then it won't get stuck.

Hey Jason I know you used to run a TC3 touring car with the BMI double deck chassis. I have one with this chassis & was wondering if you had any tips on setup for carpet & asphalt including tires. Thanks

Default ESC

Hi,

I know that many are using Tekin RS ESC in DB10R. What do you think about new Mamba Max Pro 1/10th Sensored & Sensorless ESC? Maybe some one is using that ESC? Does it fit in DB10R? Any other ESC to go with?

If money is not an issue then just get the Tekin, seriously, it's the best stuff out there. Evaldas in Lithuania has both BMI kits and Tekin brushless stuff, I can give you his contacts in PM if you don't know the guy.

Default mid corner grip roll

as the title says. I get grip roll at the mid part of a corner. Carpet racing. I am using the world spec tyres ( purple banded ) I am not sure how to cure this as I dont want to just change tyres to any other combo of non spec type. Meaning no double pink this, or grey that. I have used the carbon effect spec tyres, but i generally get the same result. Not as bad though.
I'm running a 1 cell lipo, the car is set as this;

front
.016 springs
5 degree block
shim 1 forward 1 back
1 degree camber
0.5 toe out

sides.
standard flex plates
mounting hole front
50k side goop

centre
silver spring
40 wt oil

ride height down to 4mm


I've run kit front springs but, with lipo and the lack off weight ment i got very bad understeer. The 0.16 springs gives me great turn in now.
I had the grip roll with standard kit springs too.

Thanks

Unfortunately the ride height rules for WGT really bite you in the butt on carpet and when the grip is high the rolling starts. Guys at IIC were truing their tires almost down the the rims and CA'ing the tire sidewalls to keep that from happening. Have you tried that yet?

yes. delayed the roll, but it still happened towards the end. I'm not sure we have or rather use rules much over here, so the minimum ride height is whatever doesnt rub the chassis on the carpet

What's your ride height then? You'll want about 3.5mm
