Have you guys noticed that even in the shortest wheelbase, the rear wheels sit really far back in the wheelwells?

Well I ran the car today for the first time, and it was...different. It wasn't like either my Surkiarn or my 04ss. Even its shortest wheelbase the car was still pushy and it didn't transition as well as I would have liked. But it did respond to changes well, and I was running against a friend with an Evo and wasn't losing anything to him. One thing that troubled me was how I managed to pick up a stone in the motor pinion even though the chassis is sealed there?!?! Weird. I didn't get any times today, I was more worried about finding a comfort level. I dunno at this point if it is better than my 04, but there's potential. What are you guys running for setups on asphalt? My carpet setup from my Surikarn felt decent on the 02, but it was a little lazy transitioning and slightly pushy like I said.

I pretty much have the same feeling, Gary. I think I'm about 90% there on figuring out how to set the car up. The last time I raced it, I played around with rollcenter adjustments and feel that it seems to like having the rollcenter lower. I'm running the SS arms on my car, so I can't use a front swaybar to take some of the rollyness out, so I'm using reduced droop and compensating for the lack of steering with softer inserts or bigger airgap at the moment. It's not ideal, but getting closer to how I want it. Also, it seems to have a lot of mechanical grip in the rear, so you might try running the rearend stiffer to get it rotating a bit. That may or may not suit your driving style, though. I usually set my cars up that way because I like to be able to break the backend loose if I need more steering to stuff the car down the inside to make a pass.

Where do you guys place the antenna? All the way at the back hole? Anybody have a good way to mount the antenna closer to the servo/receiver. Would it be illegal to drill a hole thru the chassis for a antenna mount for TCS?

I use the rear antenna mount position and just keep the wire tight by putting a black rubber cap over the top of the antenna tube and the antenna wire. This way it doesn't get wrapped up in the prop shaft or scorched on the motor. I remember reading that it is legal to change the antenna mount location, but I'm not sure under what circumstances or what methods are legal. Have a look over the rules and I think it should be pretty clear.

I used a TA04S one actually, and mounted it with the screw that goes into the right bellcrank post.

TFR at local regional unless you got an anal tech guy they would probably not call you at Nats they would. I had that happen on my Mini.

I ran an antennae tube glued to the receiver back to the mount and routed that way. Garys solution should get you thru tech without drilling at all.

I run my antenna thru some fuel tubing to the rear mounting position to protect it and then into the antenna tube.
