This is the set-up i ran from todays club race and the car felt really good!
the changes from the previous set-up are labeled in red. the car had great corner-speed and was hooked up the entire run.

front:
tires : BSR DBL PINK
camber: -.1 deg
droop: 1.5mm
ride hieght: 5.5mm
toe: 0
castor: middle
1.8mm flex plates stiff position
shurlube #4 in front dampner tube
2mm spacer between the axles and the knuckles to widen the front end
servo laid down with tall ball studs on knuckles

center:
ride hieght: 5.5mm
used the silva shock from the copperhead 12
white spring crc.
35wt ae oil
stock shock position
stock flex plates in long position
SPEED MERCHANT RED TUBE SPOOGE
battery down the center with esc and reciever towards the front of the pack. Idea was to have the wieght towards the front to calm down the car during wieght transfer in a corner.

rear:
TIRES: BSR PINK
ride hieght: 5.5mm
pod droop: 2mm for the bumps
max track width

paragon for 15 min then 30 spf sun-screen on top of the paragon . then wipe real good before the race.

tires at 57mm in the rear and 55.5mm in the front

Does anyone know if the WGT rules got changed yet to allow the new front end? I'm running WGT at IIC this year and would like to run it with the new front end.

Probably be best to check with Scotty and company, since IIC sometimes runs slightly different rules than ROAR or IFMAR.

I spoke with Bruce Corbone last year and he said he would change the sliding king pin rule. If he did is a mystery to me. I will see if i can get in contact with him to see if he changed it.

I was wondering about fitment of a standard size servo. Will a standard low profile will fit without issue? I dont have 1/12 gear so standard sizes would be easier if possible?

Thanks for that
I have seen a couple of servos mentioned .What seem to be the popular ones please? Also not ever dealing with mini and micro servos what splines and servo savers am i dealing with. For instance i am not sure if it is fact but i think servos like a savox 1250 (i think ) uses a 21t spline .Unfamiliar territory for me.
I am trying to get as much info while i am waiting for the kits to come back into stock.
Thanks

The Futaba 9602 and 9650 are great servos and the white kimbrough servo saver is the one you need.

So I have a couple of quiestions:
1. What's a good r.o. for 13.5 non-boost (lrp wxx ss) with out of the package tires (crc's bsr tires)? Track size is about 45' x 90'.
2. is it generally better to run stagger in the tires or keep'em the same size?

Loving building this car, need to the esc and motor in tonight and put the tires on, paint the body friday or early saturday (change my avatar to my new CH12 & 10) and hit the track sunday.
Thanks,
E
