If grip is big race ultra high, I suggest looking into the aluminum chassis.

Otherwise, get some suspension mount shims (to adjust roll centers) and a few suspension blocks. I usually suggest C10, C05, E20 and E25 for people to have in their box.

That gives you options for toe, arm sweep, and overall rear width. These are the blocks I keep in my box at all times, even on asphalt.

Some run Yokomo spring on carpets, and the shock need to be modified a tiny bit to use them (trim the shock bottom about 1.75mm and space shock off tower and arm 2mm). The kit springs work really well though, they make the car feel safer and more stable in my opinion.

Hope that helps.

Default NEWS FLASH!! Somehow I did not get the Memo

Those work on the REAR ONLY, DO NOT buy those unless you plan on one of two things, either running Active rear toe and feel like you will need spares, OR You think they will look GREAT on your Key chain.... Said by, the guy who has the "Coolest, Worthless" key chain at the track.

Are you refering to the arms or hubs?

Default Active Toe System Kit

Hi all,

I am wondering if someone has tested the new Active Toe System Kit and what the outcome was.

Has anybody tested it? Which are the conclusions?

Under which conditions the system is recommended? do you think that it would improve the car handling on a large and medium bite asphalt track with fast corners and some technical corners?

Thank you in advance!!

I was setting the car up this weekend and noticed something kinda strange. The front end droop seems odd. The C-Hub is limiting the arm from going to full droop.

I recieved my active toe system a week ago and ran it at our club race this past weekend. I would say I'm very happy with it the car felt very stable the whole day in stock and I haven't tried it in mod yet. With a little bit more testing I think Itll be the ticket for this car.in stock and mod. I have an out of town race this weekend and will give more info when I return, forgot to mention it was run on carpet med grip..

Just wanted to get everyone's opinion on what upgrades are worth the $$ for the D07. I already installed the 0.0 rear hubs when I built the car.

Thanks!

Here is my setup from TITC. Car was really good, just some driving errors by myself cost me a couple more top 10 qualifying runs, and a higher qualifying position We changed quite a few things for the unique track conditions that RC addict has.

Any questions, please ask

Without looking through the whole thread, what is the internal ratio of the D07? Thanks!

Anyone? Also, where are people mounting their transponder? With a low profile servo, receiver and ESC there's not a lot of room. I used to mount it on top of the servo but with the one piece mount, there's not really room.

I just servo tape mine on top of the one piece servo mount. I used to run it out on the bumper, but a nasty collision with a nitro TC during practice ended that idea.

I only seem to notice that when running a huge amount of droop. When running the levels of droop that are on most setups I didn't notice it any more.

Double sided tape to the side of my receiver.
