re; coolcanfanman

start with this and then tune it to his liking.

rayspeed reds all round
shock oil F50 R45
pistons 3 hole yok std
ride hieght F5.5 R5.7-6
2 camber angle all round
droop 5-4
shock holes on towers
F 3rd out B 4th out
shock position on arms
mid on front furest out on bck
plus a liitle tip put adative on the back around 5-7mins before you put it on the front.
why u may ask- the answer is because the front tires are usally put under the most load around tracks there for they heat up quicker causing the car to oversteer and later on in the race a slight bit of understeer. u dont have to do this but if you dont you will never know the difference.
cheers

re;bluey 74
i use std team corally Jack the gripper or there carpet version.
if you suffer with a little bit of understeer and want to fine tune use the carpet jack the gripper on the front and the standard on the back.

I did try LRP, CS, Orion, MM, Paragon traction action(no smell). But Corally Jack and Carpet Jack usually work really well if not better than the others. Now I'm lazy and just stick to these two.

Hello,

Can someone tell me the difference between the trailing(1), and non-trailing(0) steeringblocks?
The trailing blocks comes with the masami kit. I want to know what difference it makes on the track.

Thank you
Fred

excel delrin diff drive is much stronger than stock one, it has 2 hole position, if 1 is worn out, u can used the other one. but dont forget the excel only used the aluminium nut, no lock nut like original one. so u need to put the loctite to the setting diff screw and the aluminium nut. if not it will lose...
