I will upload more when I scan them all.

My grainger edition is going well, on carpet and on asphalt. On carpet I won the last carpet masters round with it (BDs won both classes ) and on asphalt the car seems really good in practice for the first national, which is next weekend.

Also, many of you mentioned having a lexan transponder mount on the servo. i tried this but due to the outer servo post, i cant get the transponder to fit, can someone please show me a pic of theirs?
Thanks
CHEERS FOR THE SETUPS

he used a novak fan and a motor heatsink and looks like he just got some wires and tied it that way. if you look at this picture you can see what you are talking about alittle better. it is in the right corner of the picture.

They are Excel diff outdrives, the white ones.
My carpet masters setup:

front:
FRONT ONE-WAY, ONE-WAY LAYSHAFT
NO ROLL BAR
0 OFFSET STEERING BLOCKS
4* CASTER
2* CAMBER
0.5* TOE-IN
1MM UNDER SUSP. MOUNTS
DROOP-5
SUSP. ARM POSITION (WHEELBASE) 4-0

1 0-RING ABOVE DIAPHRAGM
SHORT SHOCK END
62MM LENGTH
HPI WHITE SPRINGS (20.3lb)
YOK 500 OIL
RS14 (3x1.2)PISTON
1 0-RING ON SHOCK SHAFT

SHOCKS 2ND OUT ON TOWER, OUTER HOLE ON SDW ARM
BOTTOM HOLE ON C-HUB
2MM UNDER INNER CAMBER LINK

rear:
NO ROLL-BAR
0.5* HUB CARRIER
2* CAMBER
0MM UNDER BOTH SUSP. MOUNTS
SHORT SHOCK ENDS
62MM SHOCK LENGTHS
HPI GOLD SPRINGS(19.0lb)
YOK 500 OIL
RS14 (3x1.2mm) PISTON
1 0-RING ABOVE DIAPHRAGM
1 O-RING ON SHOCK SHAFT

SHOCKS OUTERMOST ON TOWER, OUTER ON WISHBONE
2ND OUT HOLE ON HUB
BOTTOM HINGEPIN HOLE ON HUB
0MM UNDER INNER CAMBER LINK

5MM RIDE HEIGHT ALL ROUND
ACERMANN-1ST HOLE FROM FRONT (LINKS NEARLY PARRALEL)
tires are cs-22 pre-glued, GLUED ON OUTSIDE EDGE

That track is quite flowing and very high bite. On an tighter track (my local has less grip) I run HPI pink springs all round (18.0lb) lean the rear shocks in a hole, take the shims under front links down to 1mm, put a 0.5mm shim under rear links and put the locked centre in. Round there I run AE 35 oil all round.
Hope this helps

Good question, I'll see if mine fit tonight (used to have a tc4, oh deary me)
what are supposed to be the advantages of them, better camber links or somethin? I will give them ago, I know that Masami ran them at the last LRP masters so they can't be useless.

Ok I've just compared the 2 together. The tc4 hub is slightly lower, and when installed it would be in a similar postition to the yok one if there was a hole in between the upper and lower holes, if you get me. Basically if the top hole is too extreme for you and the lower hole is too unresponsive on the yok hub, use a tc4 hub Doesn't appear to need any mods, but the hingepin hole looks a little bigger so there may be more slop with the yok hingepins.
I'll give them a try outdoors this weekend.
