Now, if we had any kind of tech at the race, i think the 05 would have pulled ahead, as my 05 was carrying ALOT more weight that the FK. It was setup for stock, 28mm jacos on ozite carpet, PF G6 body. I also included 2 fans for the motor, and the motor ran strong from the start to finish. Heres the setup -

Missed TQ by .02 of a second, and that wasnt a clean run. The car was perfect. Carried tremendous corner speed, was VERY stable under brakes, and through the sweepers. Also very good on change of direction. I got hacked on the first corner and realised straight away something was wrong. front toe was way out, and it only got worse. The left hand servo mount had broken. I was running a metal gear servo, metal servo horn, and no saver. Ill be on the look out for a alloy servo mount for the 05. Apart from this tiny peice, the car was FAST. Not bad for a plastic 05 against a top of the line FK05!

I didnt change anything from this setup except the front camber link height. I started at around 6mm, and dropped to 5mm for a little more steering. Also just re-adjusted ride height and droop after every second run, to allow for changes in tyre diametre.
Good job! Great to hear your performing well with the car.
We were also up against some big hitter cars as well(No names are mentioned to protect the innocent).
I've no dought that they will step it up soon and will get harder to stay in front, but this car practically drives itself, it's that easy to go fast.

Keep up the good work and the good advice. Love the race reports...

Well that makes sense...just thought if you were running foams that yellows would be WAY soft.

Has anyone run foams on carpet with the swaybars? Should you go softer on the spring to compensate?

We were on rubber tire and 2 different types as well as diff compounds I might add.

Our race setup might sound a little odd to some of you but we test and compare our lap times with each other as well as closely look at each other's cars to see how the setup is performing.
The yellow springs all around helps with not relying on the tires only for traction while keeping the car's trancision quick thru the corners. Both fast and slow corners.
The hard blue swaybars and the high roll center keeps the car flat thru the corners allowing the suspension to do it's job.
We also lessened the droop to approx. 1mm front, 1.5mm rear.
This allows the car to corner tighter while maintaining a higher corner speed.

This car has great balance and is all about corners. Try to start rolling the throttle on thru the corners earlier while holding your tight lines. The car can hold it and reward you with faster lap times.

Next week we test with 19T rubber. We'll keep you posted...

Stiffer for foams is good but don't go over board. It will get the car too spriggy and keep th e suspention from doing it's job properly.
Balance is key.

I would welcome him if he uses plastic shocks and steel screws!

But I doubt he will do that, he needs all the advantage he can get!

Give me a part number for the shocks or lend me a set.
I think it would look weird on a MSX. But it is lighter than my aluminum shocks
