Yep ur 100% on that. I try to use different parts of the suspension to control what i need done. So lets say the track is hooking and i can't rotate the way i would like to well than i go down on the rear ride hight from 43mm to 40-41mm. Seem to work,but if im still having some trouble than i add rear droop from 121mm to 123mm. These are some ez adjustments to make on the fly. Now the front end i really dont touch 38mm r/h 111-113mm droop. my track small, tight, and technical. A big plus we dont have any real big jumps so i can get away with 35wt shock oil front n rear year round.

Kinda green when in comes to racing. Especially outdoors. I was hitting this big jump after along straightaway and the truggy would nose up real bad. Would hit the brake and it wouldn't level off. I have factory setup and couldn't figure it out. Any help I would appreciate.

If you were on the gas in the air it would make the nose go up like that.Let go of the gas before the you get to the ramp of the jump

I would lock up the tires and it wouldn't correct itself.

Maybe you can try tapping the brake just before the jump. I know too much speed can upset the take off from a jump, because the vehical may bottom out on the takeoff ramp.

first thing you should check is to make sure u have brakes while on the ground cause if u dont have them there it wont help when ur in the air u may have alot of rear brake and not enough on the front brakes to help it tilt donw so check that also ......and also let go of the throttle as u hit the ramp that helps too ...

Does anyone have a problem with the rear left camber link inside getting a bend in it. I just put a new set on and it starting to bend again.

thats pretty tricky, acutally to let off a little before you hit the face of the jump you really have to know how much throttle you need to clear the jump before you try that. what i do is hit the jump and let off the throttle a little bit or tap the brake to downside a jump.

it depends on the jump really.


truggyup: i havent, notice any bending in my rear camber link but than again i havnt ran it a whole lot ethier it seems like my front supension arms are bent it looks like i have a lot more camber than i set it at.

Ur right tc5 man i kno just how much throttle I need to clear at my track. Check the c-hub, the holes where the stainless bushing goes reams out fast. The top side is worst than the bottom so it would look like u have camber. I'm thinking about going aluminum.

yea il check that out how can you tell if there wared out really ?
ive only ran the truck five times im using 1- camber on the front.

but with, the wheels off the ground and the tires off it looks like "2- camber or more but i have to see with the tires on and the truck on the ground.

He didn't punt anyone. He took the win by a lap.
I run Losi but I don't bash what anyone else decides to drive.
It was a good run for Maefield and he is tough to beat. Congrats
