Josh - I prefer short arms as well, at least in the front, on hard-packed tracks. It just feels better.

Josh,

When would I want to use the long arms, what is the theory behind the use of a longer suspension arm? I was under the impression that a longer arm will help the car produce more chassis roll and thus more corner grip for low bite conditions. With the car's roll center adjustments is it just a situation where you are unlikely to ever need the extra chassis roll that the long arms provides?

Thanks,
Mark

Josh,
I had a question about the G4. Did you run an aluminum servo saver or did you just run the stock plastic one? Which one worked better/lasted longer. Thanks,
Mike

striker - Yep, it includes the transponder (personal or old style)...

Roly - Thanks for the offer!!

scarecrow - Will do!!...lol...

Aaron - Yeah, yeah, yeah...

Mark - We've tested back and forth and in all conditions we prefer the short arms. I don't think you would ever want to use them (at least the way they were used on the old car)....

budlightnmyhand - I always used the stock one... When I ran the car they didn't make aluminum ones...

Mike B. - Let me know when you are ready as I will be down there a bunch....

Bobby - What about you?? To good to come test and practice??...lol...

Geez. No smiley face after "Yeah, yeah, yeah..." Party pooper!

I'm assuming you're talking about testing down south, right?

Josh,

have a question regarding your T1FK set-up last reedy race, I see that you have placed a 3mm shim under the camber links of the rear. I tried to do this but the screw head is touching the rim. Did you make any modifications with the wheel?

Thanks in advance for your reply!

in the 12th forum there is a mention you are redesigning some parts for the CEFX-12.

is that for a breakage or handling issue? was thinking of trying one and was curious which extra parts i may need to get such as front beam, etc

thanks

I know this is the electric on road forum but Josh, I don't see you posting in the nitro forum so I will ask here if you don't mind. I'm curious if you still run gas cars for Kyosho and if so, I'd like to know what you think of the FW05. There are couple local guys here that are very fast with that car. What's your impression?

josh: you are my american idol!!! could you squeal some secrets that you have done with your G4? i read about the set-up you have with your G4 on RC Car Action, is the (Blue) Trinity springs that you used in the front supposedly stiffer than the normal ones?

Default Steering third hole.

Josh,
not thats theres much doubt-but the Xray with batteries moved forward and the third position for steering is a hard combination to beat. NO matter what you do on set-up-cars always composed on steering. It boggles my mind how you thnk of these things, but cool-it works.

Now I have to make a set for Joneser!!

Thanks,
Ray

Ray - how are you achieving the third position for steering? If you've already answered this, I apologize.

Rob
