Unhappy

Its pretty funny seeing you guys try an argue between which chassis to get? UMM ....BMI or XRC> ENNNI MINNIE MAIYNNNIE MOE! LOL.. For those of you really concerned about the whole batteries moves forward on the left side. Yeas thats great for mod, but if u run stock, it will actually be a negative impact on u. Will make the car stall in the corners.

My split chassis sure doesn't make my car stall in the turns and it has both chassis beat in the most forward batteries. I can run my car almost full throttle through the turns with out having to let up much. I noticed a huge inprovement in my car over the stock chassis.

I run my batteries that way in stock and 19 turn and it doesnt slow the car down at all. It creates a very balanced car. I use very high end scales and its even.

I have heard that it might over heat the front left tire, but i really cant see that because on the scales its almost perfect.

If a car is slowing down in the turns, i would think its because the set up is to soft.

How does that work? All the pictures I've seen of Xrays with BMI chassis has the jumper wire going over the top deck (Batteries staggered).

BTW. I really like the layout of the chassis with the staggered batteries, but how do you guys put in and take out the batteries? Looks to me like you have to solder the jumper wire every time.

i think ray is talking about the bmi 350 chassis, which is just a plane saddle pack config.

Corey, just remember not to use the ti-screws in any threaded aluminum holes. The too metals will cause "cold fusion" and you may end up stripping or breaking off the screw head when trying to removing it.

Ah, yes. That would explain it.

Still would like to know how you guys solve the problem with the jumper wire and staggered batteries though.

You can fit the batteries under the belt so you don't have to solder the jumper. It's a pain though.

Hey guys, finally got to race my FK and the only handling problem I couldnt seem to figure out is a push I was getting on a highspeed sweeper....other cars could take the corner flat out but I had to lift a little to make the car corner....

My setup in a nutshell...

Violet springs all around, 30wr Xray oil all around, 2 holes open all around, 0 front toe, stock rear toe, stock caster, 1.5 camber all around...stock FK chassis...a have about 2 steps more droop in the rear then in the front.....Plaids / Purples on carpet...

Everything else is stock...

Your setup sounds about right, but a few things i could suggest if you dont mind.
Get either Light Purple and Purple springs. You can run those violets in the rear with purple in front (hopefully i got those springs correct, its hard to memorize them, lol)

also try this droop: 0mm front and 1mm rear

Plaid/ Purple foams will do, but you could try some Dbl pink/orange and dbl pink OR Orange/Purple and Purple

But other than that i think you got the setup pretty much down, i used to run violets all around and it wasnt that bad, but with a step stiffer in front it helps.

Hope it helps

Jon

Ryan, Go to the thin shim for rear toe 1 deg rear toe, stock is way to planted,caster go to 6deg blocks or put 3 deg kickup in front if you dont have 6 deg blocks,also go to 1 deg camber and watch tire wear. Def go to Magenta and cyans also.

BMI chassie also helps, but doing the above will help alot.

First thing I would do is try some Cyan/Magenta foams. Then like they said try a 6 degree caster block. I think you'll find the foam change will help out a lot though.
