So I did some laps at our local small track and temp'd it when it came off the track to be about 139 or so on the motor. Should I gear up a tooth? I was reaching top speed about 1/2 way down the the straight or so.

Also, what setting on the new style clamps matches the H1/H2 roll centers?

Additionally, I am running 1 degree camber in front and 2 in the rear. I am getting a littl ebuild up on the outside of the tire and a wear ring on the inside. Should i drop the rear camber down to 1.5?

however, the wise people at the track suggest aiming to come off at around 50deg celcius. this seems very low to me.. do you need to aim for lower temps with on-road???
In 17.5 Boosted I was always 80-90 with an LRP Fan. Moving to 21.5 Blinky running a roll out of 55 (FDR 3.65) I was only at about 45C. Not quite with the fastest guy, but not far off. Don't think I'd fit gearing in the car to get temps too much higher....

Hi Jake95 - I notice you are Sydney based - what do you suggest for shock oil weight on local tracks? Running the kit 350cst at the moment and finding it quite good...

I mostly run at castle hill but are looking to venture to SMA and Windsor over the coming months.. where do you run?

Really all you need is some spacers and some longer ball studs and shoe goo!
I lengthened the servo link as long as it could go and that was it. If you pm me your # I can text you some pics!

Drove my 2011 with the modded chassis, turned servo and 2012 topdeck for the first time today. My car was dialed! I took the win in 17.5T boosted after some exiting races!

do you need to use the upper deck from the 12 when you turn the servo
