Default ashpalt/rubber set-up

Has anybody got a good set-up yet for medium grip tarmac with rubber tyres? The track has one high speed sweeper and the rest is fairly tight. Im using a oneway..

Actually it would be cheaper and easier to just thin the gear up a little in the center and use button head screws...The counter sinking requires an extra setup.. But PRS would rather take the extra time and do it this way to keep the strength and integrity of the gear to keep them perfectly true and straight.

Spud_J - Thanks for the input. I spent a little time with the FK05 and I noticed the same them in regards to the rigidty of the car. It's much stiffer than the FK05! I'll give your suggestions a try.

Default I put my kit together last night and all I can say is...

wow! I just had to giggle to myself once in a while. I have never put a kit together where I didn't need to do some hand fitting or shim something. Everything fit perfect! I have to give it to Xray for a job when done. It's a dream come true.

another aussie

I run medium chassis stiffness (as shown in setup book) on a track that sounds much like yours, has a large straight way with sweeper, and the rest is fairly technical. Everything else is setup as per the kit setup. 5mm ride height all round, 2deg neg all round, 30wt, 3holes all round.

I think what they mean is the springs start off as a 15 and end up at a 20 ( when fully compressed ) and the others start at a 20 and end up a 24.

I think the 15/20 is true. Because looking at page 20 and the numbers in the brackets. "308380 Additional Xray Ultimate Racing Springs (20)" and "308390 Xray Selected Ultimate Racing springs (24)". I think they mean how many springs you get in the 2 xray spring sets.

Default transponder mounting

I'd be interested to see how people are mounting their transponders (when mounting them on/in the bumper) particularly where your putting the wiring, etc.

could i cut a small section out of my foam bumper and have the transponder under the plastic bumper 'down brace' thingo.. ? pics also appreciated.
