OK, I've now installed the yellow springs in front and the red in the rear; I've moved the battery all the way to the rear position; I've set the ride height at 5mm front and about 5.5mm rear. I think I have the droop set; although I had a devil of a time setting the front droop. I am using the stock shocks with the removable clips and it is difficult to juggle setting the ride height and the droop without screwing either up. I hope I have it right. Not sure.

Hopefully I will get over to the track by this weekend to try it out.

Oh, and I still have the option weight set installed up front on the chassis. I will try the car with and without the weights.

snrscion, you should post pics of your car so that anyone interested may see it.

snrcsion, very nice car! Does it include a body?

If you give me an email address I will get the word out as we have just started a Goose class and quite a few have expressed interest in getting one. We already have 4 guys who have a Goose, with more to come.

I think he made that out of carbon too, not anodized aluminum.

snrscion, do you have an email address for anyone who wants to contact you about your Goose for sale? I am going to try and tell more of my friends about it as we have started a Goose class where we race as I mentioned in my previous posts.

Well after some driving I have some questions. It seems that the car has a dendency to spin out when I let off the throttle. Is anyone running these cars on asphalt? Did you rebuild the ball diff before driving? Have you made any adjustments to the toe or camber settings from factory? Sorry for all the seemingly simple questions but we will be running these outdoors soon. We are using a 2s lipo and venom 21t modified brushed motor. I am using a Tekin FX-R pro for my speedo.

A picture with your post, when trouble shooting, will probably get more rctech help than without...

Thanks for the reply. I reviewed the setup and will try that. The carbon chassis looks sweet.
