Whoa, a reply from the guru himself Thanks Thad, that sure simplify things for me.Couple of things Thad if you don't mind 1) if i'm using the stock shock towers which hole should i use and 2)should i run this setup full time 4WD, centre one way or just front one way(By the way i have the centre slipper) and most importantly 3) do i need to use the sway bar? Front, back or both? and which hardness to use. Will follow the setup to a T and hope it improves my standing.
Cheers and thank you once again Thad

Default Plate Chassis

Thad et. al.: I have the Kai now which is about 3mm (not too sure) and in conjunction with the HB 2.4mm upper deck and HPI aluminum rear brace, flex is totally removed. Now I am thinking of getting the HB (2.2mm) to introduce a bit of flex.

What do you think Thad???

Dragoonz09,

1. Rear- center hole(#2) front- outer most hole (#1) both F/R arms I run the bottom of the shock in the A hole (outer) I rarely change from this setting but for lower bite conditions I usually move the top of the front shock in one hole(#2) This adds more chassis role and weight transfer.

2. I always run “double” one-ways. Only once did I run my car full time 4wd. That was because the track was super dusty and had no grip.


3. Yes, it especially important to run sway bars with a stiffer chassis. I use black bars F/R. If you need more steering take off the front if you need less steering take off the rear.

purplepro3,

If your track has a ton of traction I would stick with your current chassis configuration. But if you’re racing on a loose parking lot track I would give the HB chassis a whirl.

If you want to try just a minor adjustment in flex you could always loosely mount the upper deck with o-rings and washers under the screws… I would probably try this first

Default Hey Thad

Hey Thad,

Is HPI going to have the message board back up or are they going to abandon running a board. Alot of us racers have really enjoyed the HPI board.

Thanks

Thad: thanks for the tips. I remember that o-ring trick from my old pro2 I might try using the stock battery brace first to introduce a bit of flex, i am currently using the Square aluminum battery brace.

Lem2: I'll race this Sunday...but i am still undecided which class...mod or stock???

Talking Cheers Thad

Thanks Thad, That's a good one, A hole Got the setup down to the wire, if Jean Marc's Spring choices( progressive yellow front and rear) cannot suit my carpet gtrack condition, what would be your recommendation of springs with the black swaybar front and rear? Thanks once again.

Default Hey Thad

Hi Thad,
Just got my set of PRO2 anti-sway bars but dude there's no black bar. Only red,green and purple. Red being the softest and purple the hardest. I'm following Jean Marc's carpet setup so i would like to know which of these bars would be appropriate for the front and rear. Thanx a billion Thad

i hope they change it. accdg. to hpi japan, they used a smaller bearing so the cup joint should be different.

Dragoonz09,

Start with the reds. If you need more steering go stiffer in the rear.

purplepro3,

It will have a different cup to accept the smaller one-way bearing.



-What problem are you guys having with the current one-way cup?
