I need a very low grip setup for rubber tyres has anyone got one. On my others cars I generaly run 30wt oil all round with really soft springs no roll bars and lots of droop. Would you recommend I use similar as grip is practically non existent.

Got a question for all the BK bracket users out there. I remember reading that you need to cut the shock end shorter, by I believe 1/8" (correct me if I'm wrong). But how far are you threading the shock ends onto the shafts? All the way? Thanks for the info!

I got a new in the box kit in a trade that I need to move. I really don't need two cars right now. Comes with a P-Dub bumper and PRS gear adaptor. $300 shipped.

Use the Josh Numan setup (updated version) and if it's as slippery as the track I race on, you can also change the rear hubs to 1/2 degree instead of 0 degree and the rear camber location to the B position on the hub, along with the 4 chassis posts taken out.

Just run the Numan setup and make one of the above mentioned adjustments at a time to see how the car performs on the track.

Hope this helps.

Leonard.

Correct, you need to cut off 1/8". As far as the shock length is concerned I have made mine 62 mm on all 4 shocks.

I dont think there is an updated version to that setup, still the best one for outdoors. It is made for use without the posts.

With regards to the "updated" Numan setup, I am referring to the slight changes from the original one that is on the Team Losi site:

rear shock fluid from 40wt to 30wt
frt toe from 1' toe out to 0' toe
frt camber from 2' to 1'
frt hexes from tc3 ae to standard jrxs hex
frt and rr droop now set as 10mm total (droop plus ride height)

These are the "updates" I am referring to. The other changes are my suggestions only. (as I race on a very low bite asphalt track-during the day and at night the traction comes up and becomes a medium-high bite track) Go figure???

The actual setup sheet from Josh N. can be found here.

Cool! Thanks, that's what I need for my setup. Im kinda getting used to the current setup and I tend to over drive it some how when I need to pick up the pace, most especially when I'm trying to make up for lost time due to errors.

If you use the "B" position on the rear hubs, you'll need the plastic rod ends from the sway-bar to maintian clearance from the wheel rim.
