Does anyone know what brand spur gear that is? Also, why do most [all?] of the factory team drivers use 48-pitch gears?

Looks like a few new hop ups. Could be custom.

Hi Guys,

I'm looking for a hot carpet setup for my Evo2. I'm running stock class on rubber tires.

Track is 75'x40' lanes are narrow.

Anyone wanna help me out with a kikin set up?

thanx

Another question,
Why are the suspension arms on the pictures mounted on the outside of the bulk heads?

Running shorter wishbones effectively stiffens the springs up in the turns as the roll moment is changed. This means you can run softer springs but still have the same feel in the corners.

As for your carpet setup, are you running the c-hubs or not? The best starting point I can give you (for c-hubs) is to make the following changes to the kit setup:

1 degree rear toe-in
1 degree front toe-out
Purple front springs
Violet rear springs
40wt with three holes open front and rear damping.

Looking at a friend's car last night using the same setup with the PB suspension it doesn't seem to work too badly with that either.

Looking at those pics I'm tempted to buy another rear roll bridge, chop it in half and try that roll centre modification.

making the upper front link, or lower rear arm more angled and shorter will have the same impact. Though not as much as running the (what looks like) 1/12 xray arms though. It will make the car tend to not want to roll over, or roll very far when it does.

Then you can run softer springs/damping and get the same corner feal, but be more compliant over track bumps.

I run on a very smooth carpet track, and this doesn't matter as much. There are no real bumps, just the odd carpet seam.

This summer on a concrete supper speedway track, this will probably matter more. the surface is inconsistent, which requires softer setups, but corner roll needs to be limited to speed up transitions.

The suspension arms are mounted on the outside of the bulkhead because those are new shorter suspension arms. I guess theyre supposed to be for less chassis roll. Should be really good for foams. I'll probably get some when they go into production.

Talking

So, the X-Ray mini arms also fit the Evo2. That's great!....More tunning options.

Hi,

Is it possible to use a Xray c hub onto a TA04 front suspension with minor modification? Thanks...

You can try it. Are you using the alum c-hub or the composite c-hub?

The one that I have in my hands is packaged in an Xray package. I think they are molding their own stuff. The problem is I think they only come in 48p.

I think I've decided that I'm going to order the aluminum rear uprights because I keep stripping out the plastic ones and it's getting very frusterating. Does anyone think this isn't a good idea and I should just keep working with the plastic ones? I want to make sure I'm making the right decision. Thanks.
