One thing I noticed about our car is that the wheelbase is longer than other cars, that's good because it gives us a very smooth driving car, but I think that's part of the understeer problem we have. I'm going to grind on a couple things today and shorten the wheelbase, hopefully it will actually make the car a little more twitchy, which is how I like to drive it.
Good luck and have fun...wish our track had racing during the week.

I'll need the luck, and it's always about fun

I also made the switch to the Alfa 2.0 body, hopefully that can get the front end a little more planted.

I can't drive a car that pushes worth crap, so I'm basically just trying to get it to where the front has traction, and the back end is a little loose, and have the car a bit twitchy... all at the same time. We'll see how it goes.

Hi Randman, have you tried the LOSI ALFA body? It has tons of steering too. Also, with regards to the push your R2 is experiencing, have you tried putting the shock position front and rear to the outer most holes? I tried it before and the car gained so much initial steering and rear rotation. Sometimes, I play around with the camber in front by bumping it up a half degree more....just my 2cents

trust me it's worth it.....I have been using more droop lately and this car seems to like a lot of it..!!

Hi dave, sorry for this newbie question....when you say more droop that means it has a higher number in the droop guage? I am currently running a 3mm droop in front and rear with a ride height of 5.5mm, What is the effect of more droop on the car? Thanks

Hurry up with those pics Dave I'll fall asleep soon ok it's stupidly late, or early, however you look at it, any sane person would not be up at this time Thats what happens when you get into a good game of Battle Field 1942 and suddenly three hours has passed

Black should be interesting, hope you have all black electronics on it some nice carbon wheels would go nice on it too
