Can anyone confirm the weight of the 3.9mm chassis?

I have weighed the top decks, and the stock is 18 grams, with the 3.4mm top deck being 20 grams (~ +/- 1 gram). The factory stock 2.9mm chassis is 84 grams or 2.96 oz.

If anyone could also weigh any of the chassis pieces not mentioned (2.4mm chassis, etc.), that would be a real big help.


Thanks,

doug

Jeff Cuffs,
I am getting ready for Horsham PA for the opening this weekend and I was wondering what is a good base set-up for the carpet car. I know they are moving to a different location, but do you have a good starting roll-out # for a Moster Stock? Russ G from High Powered Hobbies may even make a showing.
Thanks,
Nick

SETUP SHEETS ADDED

The website has been updated with setups from Cuffs and Toso from the IIC Race a couple weeks ago. Ertrachter's Rubber Tire setup will be up in the next few days.

We will also contact guys regarding the ROAR Nationals this past weekend for their setups as well.

ROAR NATIONALS

Talk about loading up an A-main. Corally RDX cars took 7 out of 10 cars in the Stock Touring Car A-main Final. Awesome showing and nice work. Congrats to TJ Bradley, Mike Dobbs, Jason Ertrachter, Shad Galante, Brandon Melton, Charlie Albrecht and Joel Bandera.

Next up....... Cleveland Indoor Champs.

If your guys could only learn to stop taking each other out one of them might have won...The corally's were fast for sure...Just no team work in the mains. Congrads for the most cars in the main!!

Last Sunday I ran my RDX in pretty good grip (Black paragon groove) and it was superb. I was amazed at how different it was from morning lower grip to post race day grip (I ran 12th all day). It got better. Better meaning easier to drive and higher corner speed. NO wonder this car always kicks butt when traction comes up.


Here is on thing I'd like to see what you guys have done. For the super tight corners from fast strights, the dual rate I have in the car has the rims hit the shock bottoms. So I run my dual rate just afew clicks less than ideal. So-in other words-more steering withut doing something dumb like narrow arm width with wide hexes.

Ray, my thought on D/R adjustments is pretty simple. I set it when I am setting the car up on the bench, to allow the MOST steering travel without hitting anything out binding the servo in both directions. Then LEAVE IT ALONE. Removing dual rate on the radio to reduce the steering on the track only reduces steering radius, not traction. I don't like to ever mechanically (electronically) reduce the amount of steering throw once I have it set. It just makes it that much harder for the car to get through the tight corners when you need the smaller radii. Only in a setup emergency (when I miss it completely and I can't drive the car) will I change it on the driver's stand during a session. To me, a D/R change to reduce steering is a Band-Aid and nothing else.

Most of us have pretty high end radios with these cars, so I find it much better to slow down servo speed if a little less snap is needed, or if less grip is actually needed from the front of the car, I will do it with shock oil, spring rates, swaybars, caster, camber and then linkage points (tires would normally be first, but I run rubber specs).
