Hey Josh,
I was wondering when you will have C12 setups and tips up on your site?

promatchrcr - I don't know...lol... I still use the old "carpet" tower as you can't get the body low enough with the new tower....

SalvadoriRacing - I liked the wide front to keep the car stable and I liked the rear more narrow as it really helped the car getting up the backstraight hill and highspeed sweeper onto the straight.

Hello Josh , I wanted to know what is the handling differences between the rear shock mounting in the upper level and the lower level? (bottom of the shocks) (FW-05R)

Thanks

Default Servo?

Hello Josh

I just bought a BMI xray, Can you tell me what steering servo to run in it. Price range from low dollar to over a hundred.

And really how much torque do xrays need to steer. I am getting all kinds of disinformation.

I hope you can help me out.

Thanks

Joe

Default Xray rear arms

Hello Josh,

Welcome back-I hope you finally get to get some rest.

ON the XRay short rear arms-I drilled droop screw holes holes further out on arm (right next to original position) and asked BMI to make chassis wider there to accomodate the wider droop screw position. With the droop screw where they are at-the arms bend down very easily when the droop screw hits the chassis. Its made even worse with a stiff rear spring like Violet and up.

I am wanting your thoughts on if you think with this modification if it will effectively make the arm feel like a stiffer material arm-or if you think we could benefit from stiffer rear arms at this years Champs.


I am trying to figure out a way to stiffen the arms, but not make it heavy (like filling the webbing with JB weld).

Sorry-very long,
Take care,
Ray

Marcos - I never liked the lower mounting position so I'm not really sure on an exact answer. I tried it the first time I ran the car, changed it to the uppers and never looked back...

t_boned - I probably won't as we don't normally run rubber on carpet in the US.....

promatch - I dunno...lol...

powerpark2 - I would at least get a KO 2343. This has good torque and speed as I already have driven a few cars this year that had servos without enough torque.....

Ray - I never have that much trouble with the droop screws for 2 reasons... 1. I never pre-load my springs that much 2. I use the shock length to set the droop anyway... That mod doesn't really make a difference to the feel of arm stiffness as that's only on the down travel which we normally aren't in on the track anyway.... I've tested hard vs soft arms and I honestly can't tell any difference in stock. In mod I can slightly but I found the al. rear hubs were the most noticable and I actually didn't like the al. front end pieces as it made the car push too much as the front end would chatter...
