@Valk, you should look in the for sale section more often

As you can see the lipo is mounted well forward, giving the car good weight distribution, which has resulted in a very consistent car during the entire 6min run, usually only .2 to .4s drop from start to finish.

To move the lipo as far forward as possible in the standard configuration 2mm shims were added under the front shock mount.

Inline axles provide the most steering possible from my experience with this car thus far.

The rest of the setup is essentially kit
40wt center, red spring
80wt side, gold spring
Pod flat, 1mm droop
.020" front springs, no droop
Short Wheelbase
52mm BSR Spec tires Fr & Rr
4mm RH
Powered by MurfDogg 13.5 Synergy: 10deg timing, 92roll
MurfDogg SuperCharger 60C 1s lipo

In "Club Race" format the car weighs in at 890gr

Haven't seen many pics of 10R5's here lately


Looking damn fine....! Wanna go that way also!
Hope my car gets through customs fast and with no difficulties. Can't wait to get my hands on it!

- 2 mm shims under the front shock mount you say. You mean partnumber 4655 shock mount brace? It is bolted on the chassisplate with two bolts. Do you mean shims just under one of them?! Can't imagine that. It would not be flat on the chassisplate anymore then. Or am I completely wrong here...?
How many mm added in total? 2mm total

- what is "inline axles"? Special AE part? If so, what partnumber?

- as to short wheelbase. There are three holes on the arm mount plate. You mean you use the one most to the rear of the car?

- any polishing of upper hinge pin and king pin? Or otherwise?

- as to LiPo as far forward as possible: any use for the battery index, partnumber 4610? Or not used at all?

- which body?

- do you use the foam bumper?

- how many diffballs used?

- how much caster?

- You say:"The rest of the setup is essentially kit".
* kit setup says sidedamper 30wt. You use 80wt. Much thicker. Analysed several setupsheets at petitrc. All the guys seem to use 30wt to 40wt. On occassion 50wt. So why so much thicker?
* kit setup says frontsprings .018". You use .020". Reason? Bit less agressive on the steering I think.

- 890gr is including body? So race ready?

- using AE green slime on the O-rings of the shocks? Anything to say on leaking of the shocks?

- why the transponder on the servo and not in the front?

- what pinion and spur, 48P or 64P?

- chamfered edges of the chassisplate and CA on the edges?

- using threadlock, and if so where? For instance bolts screwed in metal parts.

- using grease on the kingpins for dampening effect?

- any upper eyelet mods needed? (with dremel)

- any steering block mods needed? (with dremel)

- standard pivot balls for front suspension or special teflon coated, for instance from IRS?

So there is more to think about, then we all thought of, now isn't it!

How many mm added in total? 2mm total
Yes 2mm ride height shim under each of the two holes in #4655
- what is "inline axles"? Special AE part? If so, what partnumber?
AE8443B Inline Alum Blue Axle
AE8441 Inline Steering Block
Uses 3/16" Bearings

- as to short wheelbase. There are three holes on the arm mount plate. You mean you use the one most to the rear of the car?
I see no other option to adjust Wheelbase
- any polishing of upper hinge pin and king pin? Or otherwise?
Whatever you need to make sure they are free
- as to LiPo as far forward as possible: any use for the battery index, partnumber 4610? Or not used at all?
Look at pic, no room for index
- which body?

- do you use the foam bumper?
Sophia only so far, always use a bumber
- how many diffballs used?
Full outside ring of balls always
- how much caster?
Depends on day, more caster=more on power, less turn in
- You say:"The rest of the setup is essentially kit".

I noted the difference from kit setting. This is for hi-traction carpet
Heavier side damping slows the cars roll into turns, more stable

- 890gr is including body? So race ready?
Yes, as it sits on the track
- using AE green slime on the O-rings of the shocks? Anything to say on leaking of the shocks?
Don't like slime with AE shock, find it causes them to leak
- why the transponder on the servo and not in the front?
Going for Mass Centralized location of electronics
- what pinion and spur, 48P or 64P?
86x48, always 64p, 48p is too difficult to tune finite rollout
- chamfered edges of the chassisplate and CA on the edges?
No ca, file chamfer on bottom edge of chassis only
- using threadlock, and if so where? For instance bolts screwed in metal parts.
No threadlock
- using grease on the kingpins for dampening effect?
No lube, our track is very smooth, it will only slow turn-in
- any upper eyelet mods needed? (with dremel)
None
- any steering block mods needed? (with dremel)
No
- standard pivot balls for front suspension or special teflon coated, for instance from IRS?
Oem
So there is more to think about, then we all thought of, now isn't it!
This wasn't a build article, just an idea for setup.

Build articles are HERE

Have fun, and enjoy your new toy

Default Pivot balls RC10R5

Are the 5 pivot balls (part number 4637) used for the pivot brace link assembly the same size as the 4 used at the front suspension (part number 8417)?

Default inline axles

Looking to convert to inline axles on my 10R5, AE has a few inline axles for different kits. I'm looking @ ASC8441 with ASC8443, does this sound right?

Redbull - thats what you seem to list also. Is that all thats needed?

Thanks!

The AE inline axles need different sized front wheel bearings. A number of pan car suppliers also make inline axles that will take the standard wheel bearings, and are possibly a better choice.

I'm not in the right place to be able to check some names and part numbers...if you need them I can at some point over the weekend...
