Default DC4 LE

Hey guys I picked up a DC4 LE for my VTA, and looking for a starter set-up, all I can find is the traditional tub chassis. Any page links that can help would be great.

I'm also busy building one of these and I'm almost done so a good starting setup will be helpful. Ill be running 21.5 with foams on medium grip carpet.

Thanks

Check Diggity web site, I believe their is a sample set up sheet, also check building manual for initial build set up.

Donít buy in Alumide as it has too much flex and the screws wont last. Aluminum is expensive though @ $60.

Below is one I received yesterday. Iím still designing my own as I donít like the screw accessibility on this one and people have been complaining about it since the FTTC4 was launched
Has anyone tried this mount on the Diggity Kit yet?

There were only 50 diggity kits so I am guessing no.

that post had a picture of the motor mount mounted to my new diggity chassis. It was printed in Alumide (Metalic plastic).

The diggity chassis uses the original FTTC4 motor mount.

No, it doesn't. I have two of the fifty Diggity Designs DC4LE conversions and neither of them do.

Not sure about the original 50, but as can be seen on the pictures I posted, the new DC4 Narrow chassis takes the motor mount for the FTTC4 (Not the tub motor mount)

Also I asked on the diggity forum and I got confirmation there that they were the same before I bought it.

Good to know, might be picking one up for a spare.

What did people find were the advantages, or disadvantages of running the rear camber link on the chassis brace cut out as opposed to the shock tower.

I run this Brent Thielke setup on my Diggity in USGT, w/17.5 (local class). But without any swaybars. It works quite well, but have to be careful when exiting a tight corner on throttle, the shaft drive really spins up the tires and it can oversteer. A more gradual throttle application would help me.

One thing I noticed with the Diggity vs. plastic tub, the Diggity has *gobs* more steering.

I pulled a similar set up off the Diggty Design page, with the exception of minor changes. always good to have more set-ups.

What shocks are people using instead of the standard shocks with the VCS2 upgrade.

The VCS2 upgrade was okay back in the day but shock design has changed a lot. Im looking for replacement shocks that will fit my old springs. How is the TRF shocks?

Anyone tried these?
