tc4 top speed car no droop?
 
I have a tc4 set-up for running straight line speed only. Can I run without the droop screws or are they necessary? It seems they change and makes handleing over 50mph rough sometimes.

I have never done speed runs personally, but droop should make no difference to the handling in a straight line if not accelerating or braking hard.

If it effects the handling then one side is lower than the other, but if you just want to go fast in a straight line then I dont see why you cant run without them.

Since you only run for straight line, I think only front droop matters (assume no brake before finish line). It is tricky to play around droop, its somehow about weight transition. I think trying to maintain all wheels on the ground is the key as TC4 is 4WD, playing around weight distribution may help also. Good luck:)

yeah get rid of those screws if you don't know how to set it correct or what is that screws going to do for your needs.

if you do get rid of them just make sure your shocks length is same left and right.

without those screws you will have more traction overall anyway which is good for what you doing

Make sure the springs fully work with down drop if you are going to use droop. In you case, I think you only need to worry about front droop, for the rear, you can try different spring rates and add some anti-squat to reduce front lift.

I might try it sometime without them.. right now they are set to 6 fr. and 4 rear. everything is good now. just wondering if they were needed.
