No unfortunately. I'm sort of trying to plan on the gas sedan nationals but it's not looking too hopeful right now. This is sort of my cooling off year. Are you going? If so good luck.

You forgot the Chassis is vertually untweakable!!! so if you have tweak problems with this car, you better go check your set-up, cause there is a builder/mechanic error!!!

guys can you help us out with this:

we are currently using the XXX G+, we have the low roll center in the rear and the 2r as the arm mount on the lower holes of the diff case... what would this result in? anti-squat or pro squat? what is the difference of anti squat and pro squat, and how are they used?

thanks

With the low roll center in the rear and the 2r block you get anti squat (2 deg),if you want to run pro squat use the 4r block in the rear high roll center.(top holes on the diff cover).By running anti squat you get more foward bite and side bite,pro squat you get more steering but you give up some rear traction.If you race on carpet and have alot of rear traction(push) and need more steering try running "pro squat",if you race on a track that does not have good traction the anti squat should help.After looking at your track(on the net) I would try running pro squat with the tight turns i would think that you would want to free the car up in the turns,have any of you guy's tried a one way on this track?I know most dont recommend a one way for tight tracks but on the track that i race at is a small tight track,I like to run anti squat in the rear and a one way up front,this works really good for me(i dont really use brakes much for on road anyway)I hope this helped.

OH by the way. Would it be safe to charge a 3300 on a quasar? or should I wait til I get more money so I can get a better charger?

Thanks again

thanks... helped a lot...

just one last thing... anti squat is when the rear mount (2r) is higher in relation on the low roll center... meaning that the hinge pin is angled downwards the front of the car, and pro squat is just the opposite? is this right or i got it the other way around?

most guys run one ways... on my outdoor setup, i run red springs all around, one way, front shock on the number 3 hole rear shock number 2 hole 40 wt all around and 0 degree caster with 2 degree kick up and 2 degree anti-squat.

On anti squat the rear is lower(back of your A arms is lower than the front)Pro squat the rear is higher(the back of your A arms is higher than the front)On my asphalt set up i like blue springs all the way around with 40wt.One other thing is your droop setting and ride height.Most of the time i run 4.5 in the front and 5 in the rear(ride height)On caster i allways run 4 degrees,for me the car feels twitchy if i run less caster,with 4 degrees caster in the front the car is alot easier for me to drive.

now it makes sense, why when i look at my rear arms it slopes downward... i always thought that anti squat was like kick-up up front, only in reverse...

maybe i'll try putting back my 4 degree hubs, seems everybody is running them... we ran modified this sat, and my car had a bad understeer...

will experiment with the pro and anti-squat...

thanks dude...

THanks. I just got home about an hour ago. It was soooooooo much better than my 2400's. Im gonna get a couple more 3300's a better charger and an equilizer tray. Just because I'd like to upgrade. It improved my lap times by 1.5 seconds and I can finally keep up with the crowd. Now all I need is practice, practice, practice. And I'm gonna get a lot more money for graduation.
