Can I buy the thumb screws separatly for the other setup stations? Also, do you make thumb screws for the 1/8 scale off-road wheel nuts?

Thanks,

Yes, the part number is 108060 for the thumb screws. For the 1/8 wheel nuts its 108860.

Thanks Drew

I am assuming that 1 and 0 is 1.1, 1 and 1 is 1.2 and 1 and 2 is 1.3. Please verify is this is correct.
I think it is supposed to read that the pistons are 1.0mm, 1.1mm, 1.2mm. Not sure as I have never ran these pistons but thats what I remember them being.

Right now I am running the 52's in the front and the 50's in the rear.

Thanks Drew

What about if they were in the low position... a little bit lower or a little bit higher than if they were on the normal side and in the low position?

Thanks!

Quite a bit, it really changes the angle of the link. Like I said, with the H and L going from upper to lower inner setting and then swapping sides you get 4 different settings, just enough to keep you busy. Low inner links reversed seem to make the car a nicer drive for my setup right now.

Well I will take a shot at this and at least start some thinking.
If the L1&2 eccentrics are in the lower holes then they are actually lower and shorter. Because you have to turn them almost 90 degrees to get them into the bottom hole it turns the eccentric vertical almost. The centerline would be below the original position.
So the H's on the correct side but in lower holes would make the links longer by the amount of the eccentric offset and lower thgan the standard position.

On the opposite sides in the lower holes then that would be reversed.
So two sets of each and you would have 16 different possible positions.


Later,
Darrald

Wow, this is getting intense!

L1 and L2 reversed on the car and put in the long/low hole = somewhere between the regular long/high and long/low positions as far as link angle goes?

Drew why are you using 50mm in the rear? Is that with a ball diff or gear diff? With a ball diff my 52mm won't work?

I have been running a gear diff and the 50's allow for more travel with the gear diff. I had the 52's in with the ball diff and had no problem with them. The best thing is to post a pic so I (we) can see whats going on. Are you sure your bones are not binding up there self meaning are they free when you have just the whole cv out in your hand. I have seen some barrels bind up in the cvd when it is all together.

Thanks Drew

I sent pics to EAMotorsports. Maybe he can post them here, but I've checked everything. Still bind against the diff.
