Hey guys, racing this weekend went good for me. It was tight all day and I qualified third and then came to win and was on my own lap in the end.

Hector, are you going to post your setup?

Victor,

Have you ever had that horrible feeling like youve waisted the last few weeks of your life?? I just found the problem I have been having with my erattic steering on my D1 and D2. It was all the wretched servo saver spring. It was tightend Way down and the top of the screw shaved off to clear the drive-cup, but it wasnt enough. I was messing around with your D1 and noticed-HEY-Your servo savers Rock Solid!!! I tore may car apart from front to back and rebuilt the entire car. Found two bad bearings and that was it. I put the black servo saver spring in and now it feels right.


I have preached and preached about that darn spring-and didnt even listen to my own advise!!

I cannot believe I found this AFTER the Halloween Classic. I am so pissed off at myself right now!!! I knew I could go 5 or 6 seconds faster at the Classic no problem if I could keep from hitting every board while my car steered erratically all race long.

UUgghhh-I am my own worst enemy sometimes!!

The Great news now is that I had speed in the car on Sunday. I even had to lift twice behind the TQ or I would have passed him on the straight!!! So now that I have the speed, and I can go back to my usual set-up-I should have a sweet handling car now too. Speed and handling!!! Yeah!!!

Default tweak and ride height

Okay everybody, i've got a question for you. I put the Demon together last night, making sure to take my time. But I ran into a problem when it came time to check ride height and tweak. I found the ride height on the left side of the car was about a millimeter higher than the right side. I thought this was strange because I made sure the shock collers were even from left to right with my calipers. So I proceeded to set the ride height to 5mm all the way around. To do this, I had to move the rear left shock collar WAY up! Then I checked the tweak. To get the bubble within the marks, the front right shock collar had to be turned down a little bit. After all of this, I rechecked the ride height. I'm at 5mm except for the front right corner, which is at 5.5mm. This really concerns me because with my TC3, the shock collars were even left to right, ride height was level across the board, and the car had zero tweak. I wasn't expecting this problem from this chassis. What's up?

To bad RayHuang, I really hate when things like that happens.

Any other Demons attending any big races lately?

Results and experiences, please!

you need to check the assymbly of your car. there is something not right. check to see if your diff cases are sitting flush on the chassie or the shock towers are flush. Double check everything. Rest asured it is not the chassie

Default ride height

You also might want to make sure your shocks are EXACTLY the same length end to end.

I will double check everything tonight. But i'm sure everything is sitting flush and I know the shocks are of equal length because everything was dead nuts on the TC3 chassis. Now that I think about it, one of the diff braces was difficult to install onto the aluminum standoff. But I made sure it was seated properly. Could that be twisting the chassis? If everything checks out tonight, I don't know what else to do.

I have built three demons 2 d1's and a d2 never had that kind of problem. as a mater of fact after setting ride hight and the put it on the tweak station only had to give a couple twists if that to set tweak
