Does anyone know where I can find some good setups for the T1 with pivot ball suspension?

Large outdoor asphalt track. Rubber tires. 12 Turn motor limit.

Car lacks steering througout the turn with my current setup so I'm looking for some ideas...

P-Dub Racing will also be releasing the very sought after team replica racing chassis for the new T1 Factory Kit. The chassis will be 3mm thick with the same exact battery placement as the team chassis [url]

Larry,
Will the chassis be a direct replacement for T1R owners, are additional parts needed for T1R parts to fit the chassis mentioned above.....?

Nothing breaks unless you purposefully go head onto the barrier.

The chassis will be a direct replacement. No extra parts will be needed and it will come with a top-plate to match.

Well off the the Texas Biggie Nitro race!!!

im using pivot ball right now in an asphalt track, though i beleive track temp here is a lot higher, its in the 60s F here in manila. i installed a one way and now my car handles perfectly, although i bought parts for the short arm conversion, i'll still stick with the pivot ball until i feel the need to change to the other suspension set-ups. aside from the one way, i runt he car with the stock set-up and it rocks.

hope this helps.

The first 200 posts of this thread should containg a good setup for PB. You can also go to TSN and download some of the very early setups for the T1.

I'm using PB myself. I run with a one way. Very good steering plus tank-like durability. No worry about losing kingpins. People say I'll get even better response with the C-Hub suspension, but I'll wait until Evaa here will convert his first.


My setup

Servo saver : use the inner two holes. The resulting ackerman angle contributes greatly to steering.
Zero Kickup :
Eccentric upper arm position : Front holders upper hole / Rear Holder middle hole position.
One way diff:
Caster clip: 3mm front of upper arm
Caster : -1* (front leans towards the chassis)
Orange spring
UpperShock position : middle hole on the original T1 front shock tower.
Lower Shock position : outer hole on the PB arm.




When I first acquired my T1 with front ball diff, I also felt lack of steering. So I sold it and the buyer hopped it up, went broke and sold it back to me with one ways, 1.77 pulleys, Ti screws and Solid center shaft.

The box setup with 3* kickup results to very good initial steering but lacks mid and exit steering. The reactive caster actually puts the caster closer to vertical on compression, affecting camber and contact patch, resulting to loss of traction. The pushes on mid corner and I have to cut back on throttle.

I reversed the setup such that on midcorner, the caster actually increases (leans towards the rear of the car) upon compression. This induces more negative camber and better contact patch on mid and exit. The front is sprung soft to allow the caster to react. I use the orange short spings.

ROUGH: WHEW, HOW THOROUGH. WASNT ABLE TO CONVERT TO C-HUBS LAST NIGHT, OVERLOOKED THE FACT THAT I NEED THE CLOSED ARMS MOUNTS

guys, here's another question:

i was using the hudy set-up system last night when i encountered some difficulty in setting the front toe on my FOC. i noticed that the readings i was getting were not very accurate coz there was some play in the wheels, if you pull and push the wheels, a different toe would result. i also noticed taht there was some play in my servo saver, is this normal?

Nope I dont think. I have no servo on my car and by holding the tires the Servo saver dont move a bit.

Try reading the first 100 posts in this thread. The PB suspension is good. Then the C-Hub conversion came and everybody converted theirs because it was supposed to be lighter and more responsive. Then they started reporting broken this and brocken that. So when the aluminum parts came out, they went that way too...

Makes me wonder if any benefit is gained in the weight dept because those aluminum parts should be just as heavy (if not heavier) as the PB suspension itself.

THe short arms are a different matter of course.
