High traction setup... here's mine and having good luck with it.
40wt oil all around
firm bladders
Prolinear #6852 grey or #6751 orange on all 4 shocks.
inner hole on shocks towers front and rear.
3 deg C-blocks. w/3mm spacer
Camber: 1deg. front, 2deg .rear.
Camber link: front stock. Rear: inner lower hole on tower and middle hole on hub.
Swaybars: Front-black, Rear: none.
Tires: Sorex 32R or 28R w/firm inserts type A

I'm running the HB chassis and upperdeck.
P2k2 pro w/108/35 gearing. you may have to gear up or down depending on track layout. I'm going to try the Fantom MVP this weekend. feels like the motor has lots of torque and accelleration.

Good luck... and win some races.

Hello rc-zombie,

Using your setup. my track is small and has lots of turns.
What would you recommend going up a gear or down from your gear ratio of 108/35? (running a p2k 2 pro)

BTW: I haven't even put any electronics yet on the Pro3.
So I guess I'm not selling it yet*

Best Regards,
Kenix

Play around with a short wheelbase. this should help in getting around the turns quicker. Maybe start with a 34 pinion if you have a 108 spur.

If you plan to sell it someday and want to keep the bottom of your chassis scratch free put on some AE protective sheeting. but if you plan to seriously race with it...leave it off.

softer spring, tilt the shocks inwards. depends on where in the corner u need the grip, and how u want the car to respond

i need grip on exit because the rear loses traction when i hit full throttle. i will level the ride height soon...right now, the rear is 1mm higher. any other suggestions?

Try leaning the shock in at the top, this makes the car feel a bit more "planted".

Also try running with the camber link in the upper hub carrier hole (i.e. more angled) - this also makes the car feel more "planted" and consistent.

that has been my problem-- since we almost have the same car.


I corrected mine by making the rear shock tower stand, it the rear reacts more quickly, than by leaning it inwards.

I use orange at the rear and 40wt. and yes it is 1 to 2 mm higher than the front bcz, its a bit soft (malambot).

I run at pearl and they noticed that my car is more planted than theirs.


Hope it works for you as it did for me

if its on exit, stiffen the rear spring, that will allow you to pile onto the throttle and the spring will be able to take the load. it will turn a little harder going in aswell, you could then try adding a little castor to balance it out. level your ride height. u could also lengethen the wheel base in the rear.

thanks guys, at least i know that i am in the right train of thought. i remember in the pro2, raising the roll center reduces body roll hence they use softer springs to get grip. putting the outer camber link on the upper hole of the hub carrier does the opposite, lowers roll center and increases body roll. right? i'll try laying down the shocks by moving the upper hole inwards.

my set-up is:
Front: 40W, #4 piston, 6852 (grey) springs, 0 toe, -1.5 deg camber, 4 deg C-hub, 2mm spacer on outer camber link, stock inner camber link (this is what gives the car aggressive turn in), 5mm ride height
Rear: 40W, #3 piston, 6850 (yellow) springs, -2 deg toe, -1 deg camber, stock camber link position, stock shock positions, 6mm ride height

lem2: i find the 6841 (orange) spring too soft. my springs start at 6844 (red) - 6849 (pink), 6850 (yellow) and 6852 (grey). i have the 6851 (blue) but mysteriously broke one. i am trying to set-up the car on the newer and harder spring sets for agility.
