Any thoughts

New parking lot setup of mine. so far it's been pretty decent wherever I go! I forgot to add in the notes... add a .5mm spacer on the steering ballstud on the steering knuckle.

Korey,

I have noticed the tamiya guys use a lot of antidive in front, do you feel that works for the Cyclone too?

I think in modified it can help. It keeps the front end from diving so much under braking which seems to make the car a little more stable to me.

Hi Korey,

What do you think of the EXP36 tires compared to MM and Sorex?

I just tried the MM32_Absolutes for the first time (was Sorex36) and the car is like it is on rails.

Cheers

They are pretty similar to sorex. I feel on the first run they are faster than brand new sorexs... but after that they feel pretty equal. I remember running the MM absolutes when I ran for Much More in the past. They work really well too, but justg about any tire worked at the track I ran them at. It was a super high bite indoor asphalt track that made any tire really good!

Hi

Any chance of a better pic of that setup sheet ? ( can't read the full settings )

Or can you just write the setup on this

Thanks

My main track is large, outdoor asphalt, and a little bumpy in a few spots.
Please have a look at the link below (I think you can see it from space!!).

Honestly... I get it with every setup. I've never had a car that didn't do it, so I don't pay attention to it anymore.

On the settings that Korey has used.. what does it do to the rear of the car when you swap the shims in the rear hub / rear arm joint. Does it increase the wheel base and make it less prone to spin from the rear as there is less weight behind the wheel?? or does it do something else.. I usually have the standard settings here which is 2mm at the rear and .7 at the front on the hub joint (don't know what else to call tha area)..

I will give it a go next meet but just want to see what affects on handling I should be looking out for..

Thanks
