Hi Slotmachine - would you be able to post a setup sheet for your D08? I'd be curious to see how similar our setups are. I am wrapping up the USVTA/USGT race season with my previous chassis but have done extensive testing with my D08 and the corner speed is incredible.

Yes but I'm pretty sure he is asking about 2mm under all the "suspension shim" settings on the setup sheet, just below the bar thickness setting on the sheet.

Sorry I misunderstood that is my wheelbase shims on the hingepin I didn't run any shims under the pin holders. I am going to try raising the whole rear with .5mm and the fr 1mm to remove some caster. Im also going to try sweeping the front arms forward to make the steering more aggressive.

D08 setup - Asphalt - high grip

I'll post my setup next week. My computer crashed so it's a tad difficult to load thing at the moment. This setup is using the TBBS shocks and LCG towers with SMJ springs.

Please hold on

I also suggest looking into getting the Xray PSS system for asphalt.

No problem, thanks for the clarification.

Okay I got to run the car after my changes and I got the steering I wanted. I put a 1mm shim under the FR pin mount and I put .5mm shims under all the rear pin mounts. I ended up going to 1mm shim in front of the rear arms and Im now running white rear springs and red fronts. I am still looking for the sweet spot on gearing and timing on the 21.5 motor

Hi All ,

Any comments on the TBBS - is it an all round gain in terms of traction and corner speed - I mean in terms of low / mid and high traction ?

Thanks

Ive only run now for 2 races on the new black CRC carpet which is very high grip. as compared to the kit shocks on this carpet the shocks are more consistent because of less travel in the shock piston and able to let the shock do its work sooner. That translates to indoor real time reactions. Outdoor on pavement I have no experience with because there just isn't any tracks to run on in my area. My shock package I built to kit recommendations. Just changed fluid a little and shock position for my track. I did see a very positive and noticeable improvement.

Is there some where on here that has the spring rate for the TBB and the TBBS springs?

If you're looking for the digital copy, check out VBC's Support page or simply click on the link below for the TBB Shock Information.
