2. The side springs are there to support the chassis as it rolls under cornering. Generally, the more the chassis can roll, the more sidebite the rear-end will have. The downside is that the car won't change directions as quickly.
Thanks... Will try some of this on the weekend. I was thinking the same thing about the side springs based on how easy it is to roll each end of the chassis. I think I might lean towards soft and tune more at the front end.

Default Rollout

The age old question

Can you guys give me some advice for rollout? I'll be running a 10.5 (1s) with a Tekin and all the boost, and turbo stuff.

The surface is asphalt with about 150' straightaway (i think!!)

On that note, if you have any outdoor asphalt setups you can share, that would be cool too.

I've only run the car on carpet, so its all good there (17.5 only).

Thanks,
Steve

Yes it was a good weekend for Team CRC in Australia dominating the South Australian state Titles. TQ, 1st and 2nd was with Gen XL's, Black Diamond ESC and CRC Lipo's. Top 4 all using CRC Pro Cuts. Congratulations on the win Troy. TQ and win in 10.5 touring as well made it a very good weekend for you.

Yeah but it felt dead set boring compared to the 12th.

Hey guys, I picked up the bronze lower arm balls for the frontend. They seen to fit extremely tight into the kingpin wondering if anyone else has seen this and if anyone has any suggestions. Thanks

1/8" reamer inside until the kingpin moves smoothly through it, but no more than that. Have to admit the ones I had were perfect from the start though.

They have pros and cons. they are more accurate in general, but they are also more likely to break the kingpin in an accident.

I had that problem when I got another company's bronze balls. I just polished the kingpin till it went through.
