For parts, try www.nitrohouse.com. They are located next to OFNA and should have everything you need for that car.

Man, I've tried just about everything, car has massive oversteer. The only time I got anything remotely like a push was using dirty front tires with squeaky clean rears, worked okay for about 5 minutes before the rear started sliding again (for some reason our track leaves crap on the tires which we can clean off, but no traction compound is allowed).

Really frustrating.

Jack the Gripper is odorless and shouldn't affect the carpet. When i put it on, no residue was left on the tires.

Yes, they are in the same building.

"Nitrohouse" is the retail sales outlet for Ofna but they also sell much more than just Ofna products. They are a great source of Mugen parts along with many other brands also.

Could you post your current set-up in more detail?

I know some are using the white springs up front. Can you use a sway bar on this car?

Success! Was running too much, uh, too little, er....

Let's just say it had to do with droop and downstops and leave it at that.

Got the suspension working correctly and took the A main sportsman!

Default Help with Under steering

Hi. I am a club racer and a bit of a noob with setup. I drive offroad nitro well enough, but I cant the onroad setup right. my track is:

Indoor
Painted with tennis court paint
sugared
short and tight

My JL-10 E car setup is:
Mostly Stock
0.5 to 1mm droop front
1 to 2mm droop back
ride height 4 to 5 mm
-1.5 degree camber (all-round)
1 degree toe-out
I have a hobby wing 12T with ESC.
Lipos
Foam tires (shore 35 back and 40 front)
34T pinion and stock spur (82T).
I changed the shocks to the 3 racing (the stock one are brittle and broke)
Not sure about oil (what ever come with 3 racing. I think 400wt)
stock JL-10E springs.

I check all setup parameters on a 3racing setup tool and I used a tweak station to balance.

I am struggling with on power under steer.
Any suggestions.

thanks

I saw that rctvlive with the JL10 and I ordered the car but did not get that mustang body as I dont think it is good for racing. What is the best body for the rcgt races?

I would try a stiffer spring in back, add a little anti squat, less rear toe in, more traction compound on front tires. It could be one or a combination of all these things without driving the car it's hard to tell how far to go. Try one at a time until you get what you are looking for.

well it mostly depends on how your car is setup. but a pretty stable body or bodies are the 350z and the MRS bodies as well as the supra if you can find one. hope this helps.
