Yeah, I moved to Central Illinois in June for a new job. We're outside Champaign right now actually

I've got some ideas from testing 27's on my foam car...I know, shouldn't work, but I did figure a few things out.

Ray,

Post that set up please! I ran the 3rd Hurricane Race at IRP yesterday, and while the car felt great (smooth, good steering, stable), I was kinda slow. Don't know if it was set up, horse power, or the chump behind the radio, but I would be curious to try a proven rubber-carpet set up. Thanks in advance!

I found a setup I like for road rage, I'm going to do some fine toning today. It works pretty good but I am still looking for that speed.

Question about rear toe and which one is better to run any why: advantages vs. disadvantages.

Lets say I want to run 2 deg toe in the rear for 19t. I have 2 choices to make 2 deg. I car run the 2 deg rear toe bar and 0 deg hubs or 1 deg rear toe bar and 1 deg rear hubs flipped to get 2 deg. Uless of course Losi ever releases the 2 deg hubs.

The week at IRP I ran 1 1/2 deg in 19t and used a 1 deg rear toe block w 1/2 deg hubs flipped to get the 1 1/2 deg. I've talked with Rick Worth about this and not sure which way is the better mechanical advantage.

What are the pro's or cons of setting up rear toe.

Thanks.

Bigdog--If you flip the rear hubs, (right on the left and vice-versa) then you actually take that much toe-in away from the side.

EXAMPLE--2 deg rear toe bar with 0 hubs = 2 deg. per side
2 deg rear toe bar with 1 deg hubs = 3 deg. per side
2 deg rear toe bar with 1 deg hubs "flipped" = 1 deg. toe per side

I hope this makes sense for you. Good Luck

Brant

Todd-
I am currently running 70 weight oil in the front with 60 rate springs and 30 weight oil in the rear with 25 rate springs with the original kit arms on carpet. When using the new BK arms on carpet, what shock oil and spring rates do you suggest on my current setup?

Brant you missed the part where I said "or" 1 deg rear toe bar and 1 deg hugs flipped to get 2 deg. Still wondering which way is better, or if it makes a difference.

Mike,
The losi manual explains it pretty good:
Inboard Pin Angle: Placing all of the toe-in inboard will cause the weight to transfer to the front end easily, increasing off-power steering and decreasing on-power steering (more forward traction). Placing all of the toe-in in the hubs will stabilize the weight transfer, providing less initial steering entering a turn, and less forward traction.

Its all in feel, I go back and forth but seem to like inboard toe a little better.
