Would 350cst be too soft for the new long big bores? I saw lots of 2013 setups use 350 so just thinking.

think that might be to soft but try it you never know. I have used associated 37.5 oil all around and 35 all around. Both are good depending on springs as well. you want a faster roll go thinner oil.

Finished building my black edition on Friday night, shell painted up Saturday (mazda 6 gx which I've never run before but wanted to try) all ready for its first day on the track today. Started the day running a 21.5 in sportsman class just to get comfortable but the car was real good in heat 1 so I swapped to stock (13.5) for heat 2 and proceeded to win the next 3 heats, tq and take the final from start to finish

Great kit to build and drove real nice. I still think I can tune it up better for our medium to low grip asphalt track but it was super smooth, real consistent (had a con of .2 in the final over a 14 second average lap) and generally easy to drive. Nice job ARC.

You should try a Blitz GSF .05 body. It gets better.

What was your car doing? off power push etc? maybe we can help. i found the standard setup to have off power push.

Nah no real push, wasn't really doing anything wrong or bad - car was very very good but I think it has more in it My best lap was a 13.95 on the weekend for a normal club day where we don't do any track prep and only have about 20 people racing (8 in stock on Sunday). The next best were between .1 and .2 off my fastest laps each heat and in the final I was able to lap everyone except 2nd place. I think the track record for a stock car was done on a big 2 day event with approx 100 entrants and was around 13.5.

I didn't build the car exactly to kit as I just can't help myself applying small changes that have worked for me on previous cars lol. I drilled the shocks, stood the shocks up more with 35 wt oil, 120 wt rear diff (approx 1800 cst), kit roll centres, 0 ackerman shims, mazda 6 gx shell mounted a little forward etc etc.

I just went for a few laps an hour ago with another stock guy and he couldn't get close to me. The only thing I might change is slightly stiffer front end to stop the car digging in a bit on the outside wheel late in the turn.

Don't get me wrong, I'm super happy with the car but I'm always trying little things (like most I guess) in search of the perfect compromise between a car that's fast and a car that's fast when I'm driving it haha. It's almost on the money already

If by .05 you are referring to body thickness, the thickness is .5mm. My shop has the .5mm GSF and TSX and I really enjoy running these bodies as they easily help reduce the car's weight, but they aren't for everyone.

I think most racers should opt for the .7mm body as it is in line with a typical lightweight body without sacrificing too much durability.

For anyone who does run the .5mm bodies, be sure that they they touch your bumper or that your bumper has been extended with foam to prevent flex at speed.

Absolutely correct here. I used the GSX .5 for asphalt. It's a great body but extremely flexible. It will distort at high speeds and doesn't last through "taps" very well. The body will crunch in on itself very easily.

Good info. Looking to try them out for myself.

Yeah I was a bit tired when I wrote that. .5mm is correct. Maybe not for everyone I will keep them all for myself! Don't forget that shopviper has them all as well.

HobbyVelocity has them as well. Ordered their screw kits too. Loving both the titanium set for my silver car and the black kit for my Black Edition. Think they have every part for this car imaginable. At least I haven't come across any they didn't have when I needed them.

My next order is the Turnbuckles.

Anyone got a source for the toe blocks. R109035, don't see it on viperrc and velocity doesn't have stock on them.
