C would give you anti-dive in the front and pro-squat in the rear.

I've been testing this type of setup with my FK05 the past two weeks and here is what I found.

Anti-dive keeps the front suspension from compressing while decelerating entering the corner and also keeps the front end from lifting up and transferring weight backward when on the throttle. Therefore front end grip is reduced at corner entry and increased on corner exit.

Pro-squat makes the rear suspension lift up and transfer weight forward quicker when initially entering a corner and also compress more while accelerating and exiting the corner. Therefore steering will be increased when decelerating at corner entry (and also in high speed sweepers on high traction tracks). Rear end grip will also be increased significantly on the throttle at the exit of slow speed corners.

It works really well for the front heavy FK05 on low traction asphalt. But I tried it with the same rubbers on a high traction carpet track and the rear end kept unloading anytime I turned the front wheels, whether on the gas in the middle of a high speed sweeper or off the gas entering corners. It doesn't wash out immediately, but right at the point where the front springs are fully compressed before or at the apex.

In my experience, which includes a lot of time fixing the same problem of the rear unloading in many different situations, the problem is not normally cured using anti/pro-dive or anti/pro-squat. Changing the roll center only by using either of the two top, middle or bottom holes may help some. But I've found that changing the tires, the rear camber links, the rear springs, or the rear dampening yielded better results.

I just weighd my fk'04 and was pleasantly suprised that it was about 1.5oz. under weight. Is this the norm or did I forget something...?

Also, I put up a post earlier about the larger diameter(thinner) o-rings in the lower shock cap, I found out that I don't have them. How detrimental,if at all, is this. I just recently purchased a used kit (raced it last sunday,very pleased) and am coming across it's little nuances. Thanks--Al

i have a good spool setup for the fk04 on low to medium grip asaphalt first off add 3 degrees of kickup and 3 degrees of antisquat to the rear and white springs in the front with 30w oil set to 3 click on the shock damping and out side hole on shock tower -1 degree on front camber and for the rear yellow springs 30w oil set to 2 click on shock damping and 3rd hole from the out side on the shock tower drop 1mm front 2mm rear rear camber -1 degree 5mm ride height in front and 5.5 in the rear .they only other changes i made was a wheelbase change when it got real hot to help the car rotate better. i've been experiment with setups back and forth between my 04 and 05 so far my 04 is handling better with a spool setup as far as being freed up on the track but its work in progress so anyone that trys this setup give me a little feedback on how you liked it

Need an answer on the diff balls for the Xray.

The proper diff ball is a 2.4mm or 0.094"

Do any of you guys use 2.5mm (0.098")or 3/32" (0.093") diff balls in your diffs?

Any info would be helpful,
Thanks,
Ray

Finally got my T1R set up. Question. This Saturday, I'm going to be running a fairly large, open track with either 19T or 27T motors. Should my belts be tight, neutral, or loose? Then in a couple weeks after, I am going to be on a tight track. Any type of suggestions would be helpful.. Thanks.

Run both belts fairly loose for stock and 19T. For mod, I normally only have to tighten the front up.

For the rear, should I go 1 notch away from the 2nd loosest setting? (What I mean is, on my bulkheads, there is a row of notches, then there is one that is seperated from the group)

For stock/19T, go two over from center notch on front and rear. Sometimes with a new rear belt and pulleys you may need to go to the loosest setting using the separated notch on the rear. For mod I use one or two over from center on the rear and absolute center on the front.
