No, that is just a pic I found online. I haven't dug mine out just yet... have to get into my parents basement for it. My brother should have an old PB Sizzler in there too.

I guess I got things mixed up when I searched, because a lot of the pics say sport, and never really showed the plain Pro10... so I assumed that was just what it was. That'll teach me.

Default tuning help!

Howdy folks,

I've been wondering what angling the two side links in a ball and link type rear pod does?

Does it create rear steer?

thanks for any info.

-Alexander

p.s. I have a roche p10w

Assuming the front of the car is up,
- if side links angled forward (/\) -> increase front grip
- if angled rearward (\/) -> increase rear grip

Interesting... I wonder if there is any documentation explaining this theory.
I'd be curious to see the effects on the track.

I need a starting roll out for 2s 13.5 235mm. I'm running on a 150'x60' track with a flowing layout.

Same here... I'll be running this configuration this weekend. Running a D4 SS at around 50* timing.

Hmmm,
That's lower than I was expecting. I was running around 50mm with a 10.5t boosted on a huge 1/5th scale track. Maybe 50mm is still good considering the small size of the carpet track? I'll have to feel it out during practice.

At IIC this year I ran 50-52 roll out with 2S 17.5 no boost. 2016 IIC we ran 13.5 2S and rollout was 45-50 no boost. At Roadrunners 10.5 1S boosted rollout was about 45-50

Oh shoot... there's practice tomorrow?
I'll be running 17.5t 1/12th, WGT-R, and 235 Pro10. If I have to change motors, I will. Some reason I thought we were running 13.5t in pro10. I don't have any purple striped tires but do have 1 set of lilacs which is the same.
