Thumbs up Internal Limiter

I think you've already answered my question but I'll shoot anyway. Is the .060 limiter your recomended for overlimiting the shocks to achieve droop ala "Cutting Carpet..." in RC Car? If not what would be?

RichO-I use the TL droop gauge.

chichky03-I thought the car had more offpower steering and felt to be quicker in chicanes.

PoppaRay-That is what it is exactly for.

proudwinner-Nope that is a Hodgimoto Special

Also all 28mm wheels from TRC now have a different offset. Now you can run the TL hex and be wide enough. This is on the black and yellow wheel. On the 26mm and 30mm TRC yellow wheel there was less offset so you would run the AE hex to get your car to max width and also to help from not rubbing the shock ends.

Mr. Hodgimoto,

What is the offset on the new black 28 mm rims? Is the offset changing on the 26 and 30mm yellow rims? If it isn't what is the difference between the 2 differen offsets then? Thank you.

The 28mm rims are YELLOW, not black. The black rims Todd was running was a prototype material that was supposedly a different compound of plastic.

Not clue on the offset, but from what I gather it allows the tires to be ran at the full 28mm without having to be cut down to prevent rubbing.

Brian-With the old yellow 26mm wheel you have to run AE hexes for clearance issues. On the new 28mm wheel you do not have to. You can run the std. TL width hex.

Default SIGP @ CH setup?

Todd,

Are you still going to make it to SIGP in Tucson this coming week end?

Do you have a setup that you like at CH? If you do, could you post it please.

Thanks

Eric

A wheelie? Take out the front CVDs and put a 6 turn motor in it. But even then, it's probably not going to work. haha

You would also have to increase suspension travel in the rear and REALLY soften it up. Then put a real stiff front shock setup on it.....ride height would have to be raise to prevent the chassis from bottoming out, but you would want the rear lower than the front, which you would want kinda jacked up. Put a killer motor in it, like 6 turns or so, with 10 cells.....and a REALLY small pinion. Use foam tires in the rear and put a crazy amount of traction compound on them, none in the front.....you might have to put additional weight in the rear and lighten up th front, but its doable.
