Default SoCal setups

Randy,

You think that SoCal asphalt banked track setups will work anywhere else... That track is a one-of-a-kind.

Is this effect true with any setup? I.e. with a 1way or a Spool?
Thanks

Usually they work pretty well if you drop the spring rates down like 5lbs.

You should be able to get the 1 way bearings pushed in deeper, it'll be a pain, but it's do-able.

You mean that you don't put stagger into the car for the banking...

Chris--I don't know how it feels with the one-way but with a diff and a spool both I had to tune in rear traction to compensate for the increase front steering. Hope this answers your questions

Great run at the Bird's Hodgimoto!!!!! The rear motor car looked pretty good! 3 JRXS cars in the mod main! Man that was some close racing.

Just think fellas........As soon as the Kinwald gets back in the action, the new car will take another step up! Mark my words!
