Our track is in a parking lot on concrete and it's not permanent so we don't have enough traction, but that may change this spring, we are very close to securing a new location!

Got my finger crossed that you do get a better surface. We raced outdoors yesterday in San Jose in 70+ F weather with nice 70-100 F track surface temps.

James probably had it better at Speedworld.

Is that to give up or for the final lap?

And I now know how to put the faces in my text.

Alright well I gonna give this my last post, I don't want to seem like I'm dissing the guy. One thing is for sure and that the car is jacked up after changing roll centers. With this in play you have to reset kickup/anti-dive, ride height and the droop not to mention if there is something we don't know about(did you put the wrong caster blocks on the wrong side in the process of changing roll centers? etc...) So we basically need to know what else you changed on the car since you changed the roll centers. A little more information would be helpfull evaa.

That is perfect racing weather! April 4th is our first race, our weather should be pretty close to that. I love racing outdoors.

wow! this thread really moves, just went our for lunch and when i checked my computer a lot of guys answered back. anyway, sori for the late rsponse to your queries. basically, i have the spacer installed. i didnt change anything, so aside from that mf part the car has the stock set-up. we race on an asphalt track and use sorex 40s. i tried replacing the blocks in front after driving it around and finding that it was too twitchy for me, from 2f i used 4f, but same problem persisted.

i love this thread.

evaa, try using the stock losi low in the front and leave the rear as it is, this will calm down the front. Try that and we can go from there.

by the stock ones, you mean the ons that came with the kit and not the mf ones right?

from what i read if i remove the spacer that will lower the holders and will make the car less twitchy?

Yeah you can just remove the spacer out of the front, that or run the losi low roll center blocks but it will probally be easier just to remove the spacer. The point is you need to LOWER the fronts roll center.

I got a question.

I am currently using the High Roll Center(just did it cause it was in the manual) pivot blocks and this week at the track I was told that I have no droop and was'nt able to use the screws casue they arent long enough.

So one is that normal? and two sould I get Lower ones and if so what kind you all like?

The losi g+ low ("mid") or the MF low with spacers to raise it to mid. You should limit your droop using shock length.

Nick,

Assuming you will be at the Newark track on Saturday, please see me so we can work out these issues.

If you don't have them, try to pickup some of the Losi F&R low roll center blocks (Sheldon's?) before this weekend.

FYI...I have 3 different lengths of droop screws in my parts box so we should be able to do a quick fix for the droop issue. Otherwise, I use internal spacers within the shocks to set droop.
