Also, I am going to throw the titanium nitride coated pivot balls on both of my cars (good thing the web edition includes 8) But I am wondering what way the mark on the hex should be facing so that I get the stock toe in, and width.

Hmm, the link on the Alex USA site goes to the blank setup sheet, anyone know the correct URL for the Reedy setup?

Hi Randy
Here is the setup sheet from the RROC
I have learned some things since then, but this will get you close, we can discuss more Tuesday as I take on Mr Chinatown himself. (oh yeah Rod 2nd is ok...as long as I'm ahead of you

You see what I got to deal with That evo thread is so boring Rtype has to come over here to read something interesting

btw Steve is aware of the link problem on the setup sheet page, he has just been too busy lately.

Thank You Dave, I'll start from there, but any info you can share you know I appreciate! I'm pretty confident I'll do good at Hitec, but your setup help never hurts

That's right RBF...it's Mr. Chinatown to you haha. Or better yet, you can call me the Reedy Race Chump

We'll see what happens...it'll be fun regardless.

Did you watch the DVD's yet? Let me know in case you want me to bring more.

p.s. You have to click on the text above in case you didn't get the joke...haha some of us are slow like that.

Small tight track,outdoors,asphalt.One question I do have is on the shocks,does the R2 need a stiff set up due to the location of the arm mounts ? right now I'm running 30wt all the way around and its like I'm using 100wt. I'm not sure what pistons are on the car(I bought the car used)What pistons should I be using?
