Give this a try. Oliver was very successful with it, so It's worth a shot.

For more durability Im sure you can run the 2mm pin aluminum dog bones, pro 4 steel dogbones, or any 44mm HB dogbones with the appropriate diff blades for the outdrives.
na sorry goots I don't have any pictures of them and no there was no crash or impact involved in them breaking.

I know the rest of the team has been running short links and lower roll centers just about everywhere, but I still haven't been able to get it to be all that great on high bite carpet for some reason. When I reverted back to an old school type of setup, the car was smoother and managed traction roll a lot better. This setup reminds me of that.

The Yokomo springs were really good on carpet. The main thing I noticed you run significantly less droop with them to keep any wild weight transfer in check.

This is just what I experienced though. Unfortunately, I never found a carpet setup I was totally happy with. Asphalt is a different story. My car has been pretty good so far. I'll give it another crack this upcoming carpet season.

Hello,

my asphalt set up is pretty strange compared to this one.
Nearly all German drivers with the TCXX use kind a similar setup as mine.
I will post later a set up which i used at the warm up race for the German nationals. I will also start with that set up at the Nats next week.


And I finally managed to register in this forum D

best regards
Oliver Franke

This is a good alternative for pulleys. You get both for ~$20 only!
