What motor did he run? I don't see one in his car. I'm assuming it was the hacker, but with it gone. It raises the question.
My guess is they took his motor out to tech it after the 3rd main.

Is he also running a Raceberry chassis?

Kyle runs Hacker equipment

Yes we did remove his motor for tech, the top three in 13.5 passed with a clean bill of health

Kyle was running the Raceberry chassis. He had the only car in 13.5 that could enter the key hole, lift the throttle slightly then full rip thru the key hole shooting to the kink. He had his car dialed in and on another level. I ran just a standard L car with setup close to his and was happy to keep him from lapping me in the mains.

Awesome job Kyle!

Thanks Dave! Thank everyone for the kind words.

I ran the same setup with slight changes as i posted for the Speedtech Race. I will post a updated setup sheet shortly.

Of course, NOTHING but my Hacker motors and ESC's.

Larry, Yes vegas i will be there. Also planning on asphalt nats, we will see. Hope to race with you soon.

We are all on a roll with the car. Keep it up!

For those of you who like to know suspension information. This is a decent free calculator. It can also be changed to metric!!

Nice. Great job at the Reedy Kyle. Didn't think about tech. So is the raceberry chassis better than the alum for asphalt? Im assuming so. Our asphalt will be up and racing soon so trying to stay up to date.

honestly it all depends upon the amount of grip -- and the class you are running.

stock- you'll prefer a stiffer chassis to remove corner stalls/remove grip
mod- you'll prefer a softer chassis just to gain grip

i think the L carbon chassis is great for most conditions. aluminum is best in high grip (IIC, Snowbirds, etc). a thin chassis, like the raceberry, is probably best suited for low grip asphalt.

Question for low to med. grip: Are the AT21S pivot balls a real must have?
I see them on almost every setup-sheet. But they are a bit pricey.
Thx!

I dont think so. I pretty much never use them. I actually think the lower roll center they provide is better for high grip, and not low grip. Ive never felt like I needed lower than 0 shims under the standard balls, although I do tend to drive higher roll centers than most That being said if I knew there was a setup that worked and wanted to put on my car, it would be wise to get them so you can copy exactly.

At21s is just another tool to try. I love em. Others don't.

What class are you running? What surface? What tires?

Agree 100%, lower roll center is better on high grip and higher roll center is better on low grip.

All corners? Low speed (max throttle)? Medium speed?
