just use the weight to carry more entry speed which means more corner speed, which means you go faster

The guys on the T2 forum can go back to their undying lovefest for their Xray baby.

With a 7 turn I am only 7 grams over.

I have about 1 mm of droop in the front and 2 in the rear. I also have no couplers in the front (very narrow front). Let me know what you think about the sway bar. Thanks,

Hey Kenny......

Well, first off......... I never knew that "darty" and "asphalt" could be associated with each other. Remember, I run modified so a 7 turn might yield a different feel than 19T or Stock. You may need to stiffen up the front springs.

The 0 deg blocks increases initial steering, helps with low speed steering and makes the car feel more "direct" on steering inputs. I have been a fan of it for a while. But I guess I might be weird.

Jeff

Ah ..ok so it's "normal" ...I've only ran rubber tire big races before, so I was used to having to add weight in order to make minimum.

Yeah.

The 4mm chassis is heavy, couple that with the thicker topdeck. Then you throw into the mix the different motors and their weights.

19T being the heaviest cuz of the most arm material and wire. Then Stock with a lot of wire but no arm material. Then you have the Mods with standard arms and no wire. haha.

Guilty...at the Novak race I was 36 g over

That is however, with 24 g added to balance the chassis. As long as you're not like 50-60 g too heavy, it won't make a huge difference.

Yep, having to add a brick on the chassis behind the battery to balance the car really sucks. That darn motor sticks out too far. Hope Corally hurrys up with a new left rear bulkhead that moves the motor in farther. I can't even imagine how bad the balance would be when adding a motor guard/fan unit.

I posted over on the On Road Rules discussion thread posing the question how the difference in weight was figured out for the ROAR T2 minimums:

F brushes, small cavity drilled in them, with red springs was dialed for the co27.
