Gary, that's a good point. I put away my warmers for the last heat and main at last fridays club race and the car seemed better. It's hard to tell for sure, I'm making so many set up changes between heats. I have no doubt that front tire temp is a factor in all this though. Have you temped your tires after a run?

Adam the 009 fully loaded at spec weight without body is coming in at 50.35% rear and 49.65% front, left to right is within 2 grams of each side.

My tires are coming in at LF 89.8 RF 89.7 LR 88.9 RR 89.0, but I'm still not really happy with my setup. The test track we ran on Saturday had a fast sweeper to a long straight with a hairpin at the end. I figure if I can get the car to feel good at the end of that she should be good to go for most of the venues we are running. Testing continues.

If you took out the insert, I think you can run 5x10x4's. Would this effect anything?
The stock bearings for the aluminum steering knuckles are 5x9x3, without the composite inserts you need 5x11x4. Avid RC carries them.

Don't get me wrong the car is very quick, it's just a handful to drive, feels like it's on the edge. The 008 on the other hand feels very planted.

When I pulled the rear bar off last night for the main it was better. The real kick in the butt was, the car wanted to traction roll in the sweeper with no rear bar, when the tires warmed up but, it was still a little lose in the infield!

I did try the LTC body last night which may have been a factor (usually run speed 6) but they're pretty similar in terms of feel.
Where were you able to get the LTC body?

http://www.pmhobbycraft.ca/store/ I know they have some lightweight LTCs in stock right now. Don't know if it matters but IMO the speed 6 is still better overall than the LTC. Lots of locals have tried it and always go back to the Mazda. It's just a little twichy for most guys it seems but, not near as aggressive as the R9R.

I think you can get one but, there isn't in the kit that fits well. I kinda jammed the sanwa one on in a pinch once.

Mostly but not entirely. Batteries are slightly moved and has more holes for option of moving motor more forward
