Default low grip set up

Keven, i need your help on a low grip indoor setup please. We are running on an indoor rubberized/very slick gym floor with a fairly technical track. I have looked high and low for a setup online but i cant find a thing. I have been experimenting from the stock setup and cant seem to find a happy medium. thank you for any help.

Hi Keven; so far I'm really liking the tc6, but I have a couple of questions. I've noticed my car having a lot of wheel chatter with the cva joint going around tight corners. Any suggestions or possible after market drive shafts that you might have to minimize the chatter? I'm also having issues with the rear hubs having not holding the axle bearing tight, any suggestions for that? I had the same problems with my tc5 and have yet to find a solution to them.

Hi, Unfortunately I have never run on such surface but if I go off of a low bite situation usualy I will start with more droop and less front camber. The one thing that I would concider is trying one of the carpet setup ( probably us indoor champs ) would be your best bet and try a long rear link ( on the bulkhead ) and more droop and see what that does.

Sorry I could not be much help

Hi, For the cva, the one thing you might want to try is taking the set screw out and gluing the ring on the axle. Also make sure they are grease quite often and that will help ! Also, you can glue a thin toe shim on the steering block to limit the travel ! that would cure it if the track does not require so much throw.

Hi, I do run the new capacitor. the capacitor is joined toghetter in series so they say it should be more power and it gives lower resistance but the difference is small ! I run the 6-7.4 one !




SESIMON- Sorry I forgot about the rear hub. The one thing I do to prevent slop is I take a exacto knife and mark the hub at 3-4 spots where the bearing sits in so that way the bearing sits tight.

Hope this helps.

You may not know the answer to this Keven, but do you know if Team Associated is coming out with a 4WD Short Course truck?

What's the difference in steering between the the #7 and the #8 bellcrank ?
Does the 8 give same entry (as a 7) but less mid to exit steering ?
Thanks.

I run the 8 block in modified and 7 in 17.5 ! as for the piston, in the shocks I run blank piston from TeamAssociated and drill them ! I drill 2 holes with a 1mm drill bit and 1 hole with a 1.5 ! so it is a 1,1,1.5

Hi , The difference between the 2 is very little but still there. The 8 block will give you more ackerman so a little less reactive but should finish the corner a little better. the 7 block will get in the corner a little harder and should have more steering in-and middle but wont come out of the turn as well ! Hope this helps

Keven,

Sorry I know this has been asked, but im still confused on the whole 1,1,1.5 piston. Do you run that piston on all surfaces? From high grip to low grip, carpet and asphalt? Or what conditions would you go away from that piston?

Thanks
