Default A set-up to try

Hey all,

This club racing set-up worked well last weekend. I am not saying its dialed or anything-but its worth a try for thse who like to experiment around. Of course its easy to drive and has plenty of steering. I would warn about using too much Dual Rate as it seems to scrub speed when wheels are turned too far in long corners-but is fast if you dont saw at wheel. Its felt great in full mod too.

Front
shocks 60 wt oil, stock piston, 32 lb Corally spring, third hole out on arm, 3rd hole in on shock tower-shock towe r lowered 3mm.

Camber link top row-into 2nd hole.

4 deg casterwith anti-dive. 1 in front and 2 in rear. Wheelbase short. Parma
Cyan tires 2.25" CA up the side walls.
1.9mm sway bar, 1mm lift (uptravel) for droop. 190mm width. 1/16" toe out.

Rear
Shocks 35 wt oil, 1.3 piston, LOsi black spring, 4th hole out on arm and 2nd hole in on tower.
Camber link into upper 2nd hole in on tower, high and short on hub. Prosquat-1 in frnt and 2 in rear. no sway bar. MId wheelbase.
Parma Magenta tires CA up side wall-but not to top of tire.
2mm uptravel for droop. 1mm shims for toe-in. Narrow hexes for 190mm width.

Ride height was 4.2 front to back and body was Parma Alfa. Front diff very tight-rear a bit loooser.

Please let me know if anyone tries it.

OH-yeah-let me add that for stock-you might want to try a 36 lb front spring stood up on e hole on tower.

This was used in Medium bite-super fast layout with some slower technical corners to seperate the fast sections..

Corally USA:

Are you supplying the delrin replacement pulley for those of us that bought a separate front diff. with the aluminum pulley? If so what's the process to get one? and if not how much are they?

I'm not sure if PRS gears fit. I know that Corally and Kimbrough gears fit (kimbrough are real snug). For 64P, you want a 104 tooth spur...that is equivalent to the stock 78 tooth gear.

As far as building tips go, I have one:
Put the swaybar mounting balls on the arms before you put the arms on the bulkheads, if you can. If you already have this stuff assembled, it just takes a little bit more precision and patience.

Other than that...the car goes together very easily and without a dremel at all!

i have used Xenon's from Speedtech before... and Eric tells me that there is a PRS gear that fits, but he was out at the time, i use anywhere from 100-104 tooth.

Thanks i'll order up some PRS gears. This is the first car i have bought that i wont have to spend twice as much as it cost to get it up to par. do you guys only run the corally springs or do you run assoc. or something else.Also need a few setups.one for foams on carpet and one for rubber on carpet with pit tires.

Aaron, most of the team and I run Corally springs, but a few others have used Losi springs with success.

As for setups, I would recommend starting with Jeff Cuffs' January Jam setup for foam, and the Orion Speed Weekend setup for rubber tires.

Default Re-Posting Question

Corally USA:

Are you supplying the delrin replacement pulley for those of us that bought a separate front diff. with the aluminum pulley? If so what's the process to get one? and if not how much are they?

Also, can you please post when the set-up's for the '05 Snowbirds RDX and 12M are available.

I think we're all very interested to know!
