If I build the Mi4CX exactly per the instructions, what setup would I be putting on from the Mi4CX setup page?

For parking lot I would probably recommend the tarmac low grip to start with and work from there.

Hi Guys

I have not seen any discussion regarding the Big Bore shocks, i have only heard of 1 local to OZ guy running them (Hi Jim), and he seems to like them on our low grip bumpy tracks.

What is happening OS, people tried them, liked them, not liked them etc.
Martin your thoughts?

Bradd,

Are you thinking of changing car again?

I have them and now that I have some other springs I will test them out. However whilst the car is working with the applied setup, I don't see the point in changing until I need too.

Later,

Calvin.

Schuie, been there done that
Im poor so i cant get a new car if i wanted to, however the big bore shocks have intrigued me, wuldnt mind giving them a try, but with needing springs too its a bit of an investment for a try. Unless you want me to get them ready for you


Jim - You know me, im a RC Tart.

...Well, you know me, I like to test stuff, old habits die hard

Give me a couple of weeks Bradd & I'll loan you the big shocks & spring kit & you can have a play with'em

Are the only differences between the CX chassis plate and the LP chassis plate the extra hole per bulkhead, and the extra holes around the servo? Or are all the bulkhead holes a bit different?

The bigbore shocks always make the car handle a LOT easier! So if you struggle with a very challenging track layout or a car that is a hand full it's time to go bigbore. If not it's good to stick to standard as a car that needs a little effort to be driven keeps you focused and running on the edge

If it is tipping over the front wheel you could try a slightly thicker front oil or (as I run) the thicker black front roll bar.
