Anyone using Peter Robinsons carpet setup? I thought this would be a good place to start.

I have found one problem though, the setup calls for the shocks to be run in the outside position on the arm and to use a 3mm shim under the rear hub camber link, so now the wheel rubs in both places. It is only slightly rubbing in both spots, just wondering what you guys have done to fix this. Thanks Rob

Oh yeah, what Losi oils compare to 30 and 20 weight xray oils? 60 and 50?

I ran the Dumas setup from vegas with the 3mm shim and it didn't rub. I moved the rear shocks in one hole top and bottom. Car was very hooked up.

Rob,

Will you be running this weekend? I can help you out if you like as I'll be in for practice most of the afternoon on Friday and in early on Saturday for the race.

The 3mm shim shouldn't be rubbing, unless the rim is warped or of a smaller inside diameter. Moving the upper and lower shock mounts in one hole will work well, just keep in mind that the rear will be a little softer overall. Going up 2.5lb in the rear spring rate will bring it back closer to the previous feel.

I have to work all this holiday weekend including tomorrow, so I won't be able to race this weekend or next weekend. I hope to get out to the track to try my new xray out. It will be hard pressed to find another TC that can handle aswell as my Losi.

the wheel is rubbing on the screw, I was thinking about dremeling it down a little. I think running outboard tow will also give the tires a little more clearance from the shock eyelet. I have yet to pick up any 2* carriers yet. Are they available in composite or just alum?

Where is everyone getting Dumas' Vegas set-up? I only see his Carpet Nats. Set-up on the RC America site.


Thanks

OK the only 2 set-ups I see from Mike are the Carpet Nats and the asphalt nats.

The only Vegas set-ups I see are Jilles and Joel.

Are they in a forum and not listed in the "set-up sheets" page? If so can someone point me in the right direction, page number or which forum its in.

Thanks!
