That's cool Lonny.
Did the car seem more consistent with that setup ?

Did you try the inline axles yet ?

What is that big blue thing near the ft shock post

Is that to hold a transponder?

Nice build though

Default Wheelbase

what are most folks using for the wheelbase position? I've set mine to max length and seems to drive very nice. Are you guys setting it and forgetting it or tweaking for different track layouts?

To be honest, I originally built up the car with a short WB config.
Figured it was best for a forward cg, and to keep the car more square, as I had back in the 235mm days.

I've only raced at our 90x45 carpet track, and can't see how longer would be better.
Having said that, the Team AE guy I talked to suggested I start with the longer WB, so it might be worth a try some day, if nothing just to validate what difference it makes.

As it sits now, the car cuts into turns as well as any 12th scale, and is very easy to drive.

Interesting.. I think i may try going to the other extreme and run it with the short WB config. My 10R5 does feel pretty close to my CRC 12 scale already, but like you, I'm curious to see how it will feel going the other way..

Thanks Redbull!

Ever since I saw you were running short, I decided to switch from long to middle. I was lacking stearing. Long worked well outside but since we have been on the rug now corners are a little tight. I havent tried it yet but I think it will work.
