I have given up wondering why people do the things they do, especially in RC....

Post Todd

I was at the lhs the other day and the "guys" there said it would be a year untill the BK Bones were released due to problems w/ developement!!! Please say it aint so. Maybe it's just me but I figure if most of the bugs weren't already worked out then we wouldn't see almost every losi sponsored driver running them at the birds!

Default Guru T. Hodge

Todd (and futureal),

I just noted you are only listed as a Tech Apprentice at this time.

Maybe futureal could do something about that....Like advance you to Mongo Tech Guru...he, he...

You've got my vote.

Todd-

DO you by chance know the setup for Matt Francis down at Snowbirds? I want to try out all kinds of different setups and get a good base setup and then go from there.

Thanks

Mike Webb

From the looks of the pics of matts car on the snowbirds coverage pages, he was using a lot of trinity option parts. You could probably get his setup really easy from him on tech talk, he has his own thread over there he posts on all the time.

XXX-S Bill-Sweeeeet!

pro3racer-I never cut the fronts down. But I have cut the rear down .060" and then I run the 2R block to keep 0 degree of antisquat. I actually ran this at Cleveland and thought it was good. At the birds I took it off because my car was starting to double steer in the hair pins.

mikewebb-Email me at [email protected] and I will forward it onto you.

Hey Todd, can you elaborate a little more on what you mean by double steer.

Todd Hodge,

i have a quick question i was setting ride height on my xxxs for foams and i was having problems even getting above 3mm ride hieght in front but, was able to get 4mm in the rear. while i was looking at the front end, i was thinking ok maybe 3mm will work up front so i start setting droop and i get screwed, the lowest up from was 4mm of droop in front and 5mm in the rear(this is with a .30 spacer in the shocks). maybe im doing some thing wrong, but not sure. if you have any ideas i would really apprecate it.

thanks lazyboy

The problem with jerking it around corners is that you will scrub a bunch of speed off; you may not even realize it is happening. The smoother the cornering motion, the more speed you'll preserve. The change is subtle but it will show up in your lap times.

oh, i knew that, just in really really tight spots i jurk it. I'm smooth in sweepers, and entering corners off straights, but when the turns are tight, i like to use the throttle to help steer. Also, when there isn't room to cross the track, so i can round the corner nicely, i jurk it around the turn. But i still bring the car to the outside wall. Like on our main straight, i use up so much of the track, half my left side tires are off the carpet(pvc pushed back from other car).
