Hey Guys, under the damper plate, should I put any grease or should I leave it dry?

Yes, you want to lube it. Just a little on top and bottome disk.
100wt. shock oil is probably what SG1 will tell you to use. I like Losi Hydra Fluid medium or heavy. Also Trinity white and red grease for some real heavy dampening.

take care
john

For the 3 shock setup....i noticed the holes for the shocks on the side are too small for the regular 4/40 ballstuds to drop in....should we tap the carbon fiber? or drill and then lock it down with the 4-40 nuts?

Stephan,
With the dampner disks, 100 wt. oil works well. The side shocks, tap the holes on the top plate 4-40 and the inner most holes of the chassis brace. Then shim the ball studs on the chassis brace up 2 washers. 40 or 50 wt. oil and use RPM ball cups so the piston doesn't bottom out. Remeber to take the tweek screws out with the shocks. Set the center shock about 3/32" too long when you snap it on so the piston doesn't bottom out if the pod rolls back.The chassis should be at .5mm rake, rear higher. Then the top of the pod should be level. That will have the "droop" set correctly. The front end, .022" springs, 10 deg. uprights and 1 deg. camber. Mount the servo flat to chassis and ball studs on backside of servo saver. Make turnbuckles parallel with chassis and straight across. Umm...Purple fronts and magents rears for stock will work on most tracks and a .072 to .075 t-bar on club tracks. High bite tracks, .080" t-bar works better. Try the batteries in the middle to start.

Wayne- I guessed on the shocks and we mounted them slightly different..heh I used 30 wt oil.....is this too light for club racing? I have no idea how to disassemble the shocks now lol, they arent normal for me! haha I was going to use a gold side spring and silver middle?

You may want to up it to 40 wt. atleast... If the track has no or little traction you'll be ok, but when bite comes up it's too light. The green center spring works well on average bite conditions, if you need more steering go to the silver.

Tim,

Gimme a call if you get a chance this weekend. Got a couple of TC questions for ya. Gonna be running the 1/12th scale at 'ScrewZ tomorrow in practice to blow off some steam. I just wish that people ran 1/12th here year round. Would be more fun that way.

Tim

Wayne- The niftech axle and diff is together, and the shocks are mounted. I am waiting for a front end kit to come in and t-bar brace. Thats pretty much about it.
