I was just going to post what I noticed with the roll centers. I was running on a green carpet track today,on rubbers. I originally had 2-3mm spacers on both my SD (stock) and Stallion (19t). I ended up going with no spacers on my Stallion and when down 1mm-0mm on the SD. What I noticed was that both cars seemed to stay flatter through the whole corner. I ended up with a slightly faster overall lap and both cars were more consistent.

It seemed that the both cars gained traction for me by lowering the suspension arms. But since the track was green it can be deceiving, since the last time I ran my car was at Trackside with very high traction. I'm working with 2 totally different extremes.

King of B Main, where you running foams?

You said the carpet was green so with the chassis rolling for you maybe that helped you...

My job at Kyosho is to not only race and promote as I am also an engineer to Kyosho Japan. Many of the ideas and crazy stuff I test is what goes into future products for Kyosho so we have to be carefull about letting people take pictures as several prototype ideas we have worked on were allowed to be photographed and then ended up on another companies cars... As well, if we do use some other companies parts to test (much cheaper than producing our own prototypes) then people think there is something major wrong with the current product because we were testing something else. This is why I don't allow pictures of any cars that are not 100% production anymore.

I wish I could give more help set-up wise for the current cars but unfortunetly, all my time has been spent working on prototypes to make all of you super happy with anything new that comes from Kyosho.

I watched Swift run at the eXpress Shootout and his car scrubed NO corner speed. The drivetrain was dead silent also. He posted his set-up a few pages back. The car was on rails.

I was impressed last night on foams, Seaball I think we have a good starting point on the setup now, thanks for all the help. It seems like the alum upgrades fixed our tweaking problem. I think once I get some 6 degree castor blocks, we can make it even better.
