Default setup help

This is my first year running 1/12 scale, running a Gen XL and before I order the new chassis, I need to get this chassis dialed in. I need the car to rotate faster,seems like i have to wait a split second before I can get back on the throttle or it pushes out of the groove. My fast lap time is a 10.1 and Tq is 9.8 and watching his car it seems to rotate very fast. We all run the same compound tire so that isn't the difference. My off power steering seems fine, its on power that needs help or getting the car to rotate better.
Car setup
.50 springs front
Parma Blacks
Red center spring
30wt shock oil
White side springs
5K damper fluid
Yellow rears
Any thing else you guys need to know? Thanks for help. I am not sure why in the many years of running touring cars I never tried 1/12 but its a blast other then my feet start to hurt after 8 minutes for some reason.

Without seeing your tweak or track width, I will assume they are fine. The only thing I see wrong with your setup is the damper fluid at 5k. That is way too light IMHO. Lowest I run is 20k, and usually if I have to go that low it means my side springs are too stiff. I would suggest 30k in the damper links, you might even be happy with 50k.

+1 on that

I personally run a windtunnel green #3 fluid which i believe is about a 25 or 30,000wt oil.

Keep in mind, going from 5k to 30k is going to make your car REALLY want to turn, so you may also have to back down your dual rate some...but that is also a good thing.

Wouldn't change anything on your setup right now until you tried the 30k. I run the 5 degree blocks, pretty much the same setup you have minus the super thin damper fluid. I promise you will be shocked at how much more your car will turn with that simple change.

Hello everyone,

Kenny,

Could you explain what the benefits are of using an angled servo compare to a layed down one?

Could you also explain the difference between running the long and short upper arms?

I am running boosted 10.5, would you recommend using the inline lipo for that class on the Xi? Do you have a pic of your car for modified class?

Thanks.

I find the angled mounts are a little smoother which lets me get away with running car more aggressive. Long arms will smooth turn in and give you more mid to exit steering is reason alot of mod drivers use them.
