guys,
If anyone is having there front camber links rubbing against the tires. You can use the 4 degree castor blocks from the 4 wheel off road buggy and the problem will go away... huge difference in location...

Anyone find "Good" wieghts for the car yet. I really hate using stick ons... any suggestions?

Also anyone find replacement, Ti or something like it for the smaller scres in the kit, the 2x4 2.6x5 etc?

Thanks

Can anyone explain the tuning purpose of TFW101 Center One-way?

Also what is the purpose of TF114 Bulk Top & Spur Gear Holder Set?

Thanks

1/Cover your weights in black heat shrink..then double side tape them onto your chassis...looks heaps better and you can place them where you want
2/TF114 makes the whole rear of the car one big heatsink...not just the motor plate

TFW101 is just that, a centre one-way. Gives more tuning options. Use it with a front diff to get a milder, more forgiving one-way system.

TF114 is a spare part, plastic bulkhead caps and spur holder. The optional parts start with TFW.

hello all I was wondering a few things ok roll-center
in low bite do u want to run low roll-center ?
med to high bite higher roll-center ?
my track is allways low bite so I have a hard time on the road where the bite is high what I did find is I raised the roll-center by 1mm and the car was hooked up I won 2 out of the 3 a mains ... OK low bite -vers droop I found that more uptravle or less droop vers more droop works better say the rear is set at 5.5mm with 1mm of up travel to 6.6mm the cas was still loose off power but when I went to 5.5mm with 3mm up travle to 8.5mm the cas was better
so if your car is loose off power droop is not the 1st thing to try in my book because as the droop screws hit the chassis u loose traction that tells me its not in the droop otherwise it would of worked . Now if I want to transfer less weight forward do I want to try stiffer Ft springs ? ..Next rear toe I went from 2 to 3 mm still a bit of off power loose and it didn't want to rotate as fast due to the extra on power forward bite...what is the best way to slow the cars reaction down ,Oil and lower roll-center? I'm running TF-5 stallion stock 13.5 brushless rubber any input will help ..

Sorry for the delay. Been very busy this week. Ok, my setup from this weekend's Express North/South Shoout-out is as follows:
Front - Shocks: 30 pound Corally springs with 60 wt AE oil. Middle hole on tower and inner hole on the arm. Hingepin blocks flat against the chassis. A blocks and 0* of toe. Camber links mounted in the inner, no shims under the ball. 1.5 degrees of camber. Stock ackerman positions. 1.5 droop.
Rear - Shocks : 22 pound Corally springs with 40 wt AE oil. Middle hole on the tower and inner hole on the arm. Front Hingepin mount flat on chassis and .5 mm shim under the rear mount. D blocks up front and F blocks in the back to give 1 degree of toe-in. Camber links made as short as possible, inner hole on the hub and inner hole on the inner mount w/ 1 mm shim under the ball stud. 1.5 droop.
CO27 - rolling out at 28. Parma Indigo/Magenta - 55.5
Very high bite carpet.

I have the one way installed on the center gear and it is producing a clicking noise. I reoiled it with Serpent one way oil, however it still clicks. Anything I can do? Is there something wrong with it?

Thanks

Sorry for the questions, I am just now finishing the build on the car and getting ready for the track on sunday.

With the electronics I am having trouble plaing the RX and ESC. I am using the spectrum micro rx and a GTX and would like ideas, suggestions and or pictures on where to mount them. Hardest thing so far is the Cap for the GTX.

Also, I am using the setup for Rubber Tire Asphault that was listed a few pages back, Ron Atomics.

On his setup for the sway bars the front is listed at 7mm and the rear at 4.5mm. I have never installed or used sway bars before, newb I know. How exactly do you get those numbers.

Also his shocks are listed as 3 - 1.1 pistons, are those standard? And the Springs are listed as red. What lb are those?

And lastly from the post above about the oneway. The clicking noise am I doing something wrong?

Once again I am sorry for the questions just trying to get the setup right.

Thanks

You are off to a great start using his setup. He was blistering fast at the Regionals..... and faster with 5-cell!
