Mud,

It is far from a fine tuning adjustment. It is essential.

I have a set of PookyT second generation brackets. They are available; but, any money should go to PookyT.

Where is Western BFE anyway?

Makes the car more consistent interms of handling. You can now run softer springs. You can get them from POOKYT, send him a PM or just post it here. When you get the BK Brackets, you have to try Todd Hodge's Asphalt setup, it's very good.

I'm running Numan's setup at the moment and like it a lot. Is Hodges setup on the Losi site as well? I may look at it and give it a try as well. Would be nice to see which one suits my style better before I get to LV. Todd as well as a few others have said asphalte setups will be good for the car if you plan on running rubber as I am.

Here is Todd Hodge's Aspahlt Setup:

FRONT SUSPENSION:


Toe Out- 1 dgr
Ride Height-5mm
Camber 2
Front Camber Link- Middle
Kick- 0
Caster- 6 degrees
Pulley 41F/42R
Front Drive-Spool
Diff Height-High
Sway Bar-No
Front Pivot- 0
Roll Center-High
# of shims under block- 2
Size of shim- .050" each-Total .100" under block
Shock Tower-Low
Center Drive-Spool
Drive Shaft-Bearing
Camber Ball Stud-Short neck
Hex-AE
Drive Axle- LCD
Ackerman- #1
Bumper Steer-No washers on spindle or drag link
Drag Link Location-Above
Droop-2mm above ride height
Arm Spacing-Middle
SHOCKs
Oil-50wt TL
Piston #56
Orings in cartridge- 1
Spring-15lb
Bladder-Tamiya Black
Above Bladder-Tamiya red foam

NOTES: Using BK Brackets on my arms. This moves the shocks out on the arm. This is how I can run such a soft spring. This can be done with 24mm tires but not foam tires that are 28mm.I will take some pics and put them on the site. They are aluminum brackets that have a hole spacing of .275" from center to center of each hole.
BK Brackets-You will need to cut about 1/8" off the shock end to get the correct uptravel since you are moving the shock up on the arm.


REAR SUSPENSION:
Toe In- 2 degrees
Ride Height- 5mm
Camber 1
Rear camber link- 3/A
Hub- 0 degree
Hex-Stock TL
Drive Axle-CVD with bearing drive
Camber ball stud-Long neck
Shock Tower Height- Low
Diff Height- High
Sway Bar- No
Rear Pivot- 2
Roll Center- LOW. Yes full low with no shims under the block
Rear Squat- O degrees
Arm Spacing-Middle
Droop-5mm above ride height
Rear Arm-Standard
SHOCKS
Oil-40wt TL
Piston-#56
O-rings in cartridge- 1
Spring- 10.5lb
Bladder-Tamiya Black
Above bladder-Tamiya red foam
Shock Position-Using BK Brackets.

Body-Ride Honda Accord

Motor-Trinity Cobalt 7x1, 10 degrees of timing with XXX brush and purple springs
Gear-126/26


I tried the Numan setup before but Hodge's setup suits my driving style better. Both are very good IMO but it really depends on how you drive. I hope this helps

That is a good setup, but maybe possibly dated.

Todd (and Matt) should be at Speedworld this coming weekend; so, I will try to update.

Mud,

Just go back to PookyT's last post on this string and PM him.

If he is too busy, I have an extra set he sent me that I can send you. But, he would take the PayPal payment.

Default rear hubs

Did losi ever come out with 2 deg. rear hubs? Because I just got Andrew Grays carpet setup and it calls for 2deg. rear hubs. Or am I just reading it wrong?

Default 2 degree hubs

The xxx-s one are the same

For set ups, there are about 17 different set-ups on jrxs.com and another 10 or so on losi's web site

I just got back from the track, I was trying Andrew Gray's setup. I had to run the 2* pivot block, I couldn't find any 2* rear hubs. I was running the setup pretty close to his. The rear was really loose until I made a few changes. I ran standard offset rear hubs, 0*, and I switch from pro squat to anti squat. I also went out on the rear camber link one position on the hub and tower. The rear started to hook up. I think once I get some new sneaks, the car will be dialed. I was running purple/plaids.

Andrew, I know your probably not running carpet yet, so if you get a setup figured out for Mimi's, please share. When I ran a xxx-s, I ran your setup and it a good fit for me.

I thought that the xxx-s only had 0-1.5 * avail.

Thumbs up BK Brackets Found.

They do make them sort of.
This part is a sway bar retainer for a Mugen 1/8 scale buggy.
It is made by Racers-Edge.

http://www.racers-edge.com/store/cus...5&cat=0&page=1

It is part number PRO5016

They are around $19 for a set of 4.

All you have to do is grind or file a little bit of one of the corners off and they screw right on.

The through hole is threaded metric that will hold the ball on your shock end.

I moved my shock tower up to make the shocks work properly.

These units fit just like the ones in Todd's pictures and they do make the car more consistent and easy to drive. In the front I used 40wt with a 15 lb spring and still used the center top hole.

Awesome!!!

PEACE,
TEX
