This is what I run on my home track for mod. Really low bite!

.50 fronts
10,000wt on kingpin
0 deg camber
5 deg caster
all shims back
batt forward
30wt in shock
blue center spring
white side spring
10,000 wt in tubes
magenta front
pink rear

The car is still gonna be loose no matter what. but this is the closest I've gotten to a mod car that handles all right on low bite. If traction comes up just go to heavier lube on kingpin and in the tubes. Let me know how it goes!

I just bought steel screws from AE in the correct heads and lengths. I can still make minimum weight and stay balanced. Plus I don't worry about stripping or breaking screws.

Check RCScrewz for stainless steel (low cost) or Lunsford for titanium (expensive).

tony's screws stocks high quality steel screws(the same high quality fasteners that AE puts in their kits). the only snag, there is no genxl kit currently. but a request might help change that.

One thing I've discovered is that the CRC red aluminum screws work very well, as long as you have a QUALITY driver, like a Hudy, EDS, or AE Factory Team (the set I use wrench). I had problems with all brands of alu screws when I was using my Integy wrenches, but since the move to better tools, I RARELY strip one.

But if you insist on steel screws, CRC also has high quality stainless hardware.

I was just going to echo the same comment. Look at your drivers to see if they are not up the task. I have screws in my CRC kit going on 2 years old that are just fine, but I have a good set of drivers. Make sure you have a good #3 phillips driver to, not one that's been cold chisel in a past life.

Default electronics pics

if you go to the CRC site and scroll thru their various race reports, they generally show pictures of the team drivers' cars who have won and/or TQ'd at the important races. Some of the team guys have their speedos on the left side, some on the right, and some in the middle (directly behind the servo). It's worth noting that lately, more and more of the team guys seem to be running their servos mounted flat to the chassis (which is a relatively recent trend among the CRC pilots). There are plenty of cars posted on the site to give you the arrangement no matter which way you prefer. Largely it depends on whether or not you run a JR servo. That one mounts slightly right of center, and most of the others mount left of center (using the holes that CRC pre-drills in the chassis so that you can center up the shaft on most any type of servo). So long as your stuff is reasonably balanced and your servo shaft is on the car's centerline, you should be fine.

Hi guys, I have a couple of questions for you.

First up, is this front cross brace available:



And secondly, this rear pod looks intresting:



It says on the CRC website that you will need another motor plate to complete the new rear end, but would n't the hole for the bearing holder be milled the wrong way around if you put another motor plate on the other side??

Just a bit confused with that, hopefully you guys can help!

Cheers.

I don't know about the front brace...

As for the motor mount bearing recess; the plates are machined with a symmetrical recess on both sides.
