Hey guys I'm after some honest feedback on the new r11 kit compared to the r10, what are peoples thoughts on it racing on asphalt low to medium grip levels

thanks in advance

The R11 platform is much improved over the R10. More traction on each end of the vehicle and way more agility. The car will definitely shine in lower traction conditions with the kit springs. Ran the Reedy race this past Memorial Day and it was mega high traction yet the car handled amazing. Easily an A-main car in any class depending on your driving skills. Bold statement but true.

Curious what bodies you guys are liking on the R11 from carpet and outdoor asphalt? Ive only tried the lw dart on carpet and its been pretty damn good to me thus far.

Some of the guys like the PF LTC 2.0. I run Blitz bodies myself and prefer the newly ROAR approved GSF II. The LSF and GSF work well too.

I favor the Blitz bodies since the the body post holes are marked for the R11.
The GSF has been pretty good and I also use the XFR

Curious to see what some of the other guys are running set up wise for Med grip carpet.

I'm at:
Front
35wt shocks in the 3rd hole 4hole pistons
Yok blue spring
Camber at 2
Toe out 1 deg
Spool down
Shortest camber link 3mm under the inside
.5 anti dive( no spacing under front block

Rear
35wt 3rd hole blu Yok Spring
Camber at 1.5
3deg toe in
5k in the diff down position
Shortest camberlink 3mm inner
No spacing under two blocks

The car fantastic I can only ask for a tiny bit more steering overall

You might try moving the spool to the high position. This should give you more steering. It will sacrifice a little traction but the car generates a ton already. Can do the same with the rear diff to give some on power steering. Be careful with the rear though, it likes to break loose with a high diff.

Are you running the tower or nut at the motor mount?

Try a 2mm frt inner link. It gave me more steering.

Hey Guys,

I've got a big meet (AOC Canberra) coming up in about a month, its running on ETS carpet, I will be running in the stock class (13.5).
I have had a quick look at the setups for the R11 and have noticed a number of them are using the aluminium lower plate.
What sort of difference does the alum chassis make to the car and would I be able to utilise it during my normal racing low - med grip asphalt

Thanks

Aluminum will make for a stable car, also keeping a bulk of the weight really low. Some of the racers here in California also use it on asphalt(low to high bite) as well. Im sure you will like it. Try to do a back to back comparison so you can see the difference for yourself. Night and day difference.

Wait a minute, i thought putting shims under the lower suspension blocks lowers the roll center? Like lowering the inner top links makes the car roll more in a turn

The roll center moves higher or lower relative to:
Suspension Mounts: add shims under the suspension mount for higher roll center and remove shims for lower roll center.

Inner Camber Link: opposite effect, so putting more shims under the ball stud lowers the roll center and vice versa.

Outer Camber Link: putting more shims under ball stud raises roll center.

Make sense? Hope this helps :-)

Taking shim out from the suspension blocks lowers the roll center allowing the car to roll more on that end of the car. Adding shims to the inner camber links also lowers roll center allowing more roll.
