What do the new arms and th BK bracket mounts look like. Did team losi bring out the new arms and the BK mounts or are they an aftermarket product?

The new arms are made by Losi. They're the same part numbers as the original arms but with an A at the end.

Default Please help!!

I dunno if it's because I'm exhausted or what but I've decided to give rubber tires a try and I'm in the process of putting the Numan setup on my car but having a issue. In the front only I cannot get my ride height below like 7mm. The shock collars are not even turned in a turn. New arms, low shock tower, super high front rollcenter (block in high position with .050 shims, etc.. Any clues? I'm not new to this so I've got to be missing something stupind. Do the shock retainers need trimmed down or something? Thanks in advance!

ahh.. Nope. Didn't know.. THat may be the issue! Also, droop.. Numan setup calls for 2mm front and 4.5mm rear.. Is he measuring via uptravel or that actual droop gauge?

On the droop gauge I believe... this is what I've always done....

To get 2mm in the frt, you may have to file a bevel on the inside of the arm as the caster block stops the down travel of the arm in achieving the 2mm droop.

With the Numan setup it is for a smooth, high grip ashphalt track and i'm racing on a rough, low grip track. Is there anything i should change? And also i am running a 540 motor so will i have to change anything because i'm going alot slower than a 7 turn motor?

Thanks

The only adjustments I made from the Numan setup were:

12.5lb instead of 10.5lb rear springs, I felt the rear rolled over too far in middle to exit of a corner and consequently the rear would break away..

and depending on track grip I move from A-6 to B-6, to B-5 on the rear camber link progressively for more rear grip. I havenít found Iíve ever needed more then this to gain additional rear grip.

Hope this helps, PeterÖ
