Anyway, remember the rule of the camber links, the longer the cambber links, the more traction that wheel will have, when you are using "normal" camber, like 1 or 2 degrees, but if you try to sent the camber on 0 ~ 0.5 degree, you may need to try out the actual camber link length thougtout testing.

My one way ALWAYS breaks as well, so I have change it to the tech racing one-way. although it is not as smooth as the losi's, and need to change the front sway shaft into TC3's, but it never break again....

It is with 2 6mm one-way bearing installed, you can't use the original front shaft with it, and will have to change to TC3 stainless steel shaft. It is durable, but not as smooth as the Losi one. if you want one, you can contact me and I'll buy one for you. I don't really remember the pricing right but it is arround USD50... including shipping.

highwayman: no wonder. thats a drastic change in set-up - from one ways and 0 deg caster to diffs and 4 degs. the change in caster alone is a major one. 0 degs makes the car initiate the turn really quick and can sometimes feel twitchy, couple that with one way and it can get difficult to drive. with the 4 degs you have now, the car will initiate the corner smoother but you mid corner steering should improve. i agree with i agree with audiaudi about camber links. ive played with those a bit in the past but kinda settled in the #2 hole up front since it gives good balance for me in any track. i play with shock positions, arm spacing, ride height and even sway bars more now to fine tune my steering needs depending on the track. maybe you can post your set-up so its easier to make suggestions.

ps. parang di tayo nagkikita sa track eh noh? hehehe

Default yep

i run chrome studs in the back, it tightened up my rear. I'm going to love it on carpet, i can tell, but at my lhs track, i wanted to be more loose. I couldn't change the studs either, "i don't have a tool(socket or wrench) to get that small thing out.

hahaha...

... anyway, might not be able to run this sat. we have this thing in my son's school...

... just a note, i found your observation opposite to mine, 0deg caster gives more mid to exit steering, while 4deg caster will initiate the corner harder but gives less mid and exit steering.

... will post the set-up im running, but we'll run monday in fiesta so, ill do some more testing on the front camber links by then. thnx.

Gambo94......if the diffs are out of the car the best way to check them is to put two allen wrenches or any tool that fits in the out drive slots. And while holding the two tools try to turn the diff gear if it slipps the diff is too loose tighten it up and try again. Or if they are installed in the car take the gear cover off and with one hand hold the spur and a rear tire in one hand and try to rotate the other tire if it rotates easily the diff is too loose. The rear diff can slip a little. To check the front diff hold the spur and use your elbow or forarm and hold one of the front tires and rotate the other side tire if it rotates easily its too loose....the front diff you more then likely want it tighter then the rear one. Hope you can understand what Im talking about....
