The arms are not 2mm longer. They are the same ones used on the previous car. All you do to go from the 2mm offset wheels to the current 0 offset is to unscrew the pillow balls 2mm and put in the longer (older) dogbones.

You ever going to handle your unfinished business?

Believe me I don't like to throw in the towel but I have spent so much time, money and effort and I'm going backwards.

bradley70 can you make a video to see what exactly the car does?
it will be better!

Had a chance to test out the above setting on my old rrr with a diff infront with 50k mix in it other then that all the rest is the same........

Awesome setup for a beginner, need more speed, most likely going to increase rear diff to 30k, other then that grip is awesome....

U can pretty much use any .12 pipe you just need to find the right elbow and exhaust chamber for your liking and track condition.

I heard good comments on the skyline pipes.

I think your damping may be on the light side. I'd suggest 50 wt front and rear. That should allow you to use less toe-in at the rear and perhaps 40-40 for tire combination. When using lighter sock oil your car may lean a bit too much when cornering and cause you to take it a little too carefully when exiting.

Are you using 42 rears because the track eats up your tires? If not, then use 40, run with less toe. Too much toe can also increase tire wear.

Play with your roll centers, that will go a long way for you! I'd suggest you experiment with your upper arms or links. Try to have the inner position of the upper links a little on the high side, both front and rear. That lowers your roll centers and gives you a better all around grip. You can also lower your rear roll center by lowering the outside link of your upper arms. If you keep your rear links longer, the rear will roll deeper to increase rear traction. That may allow the car to turn better as it rolls a bit more without spinning the rear. If the car oversteers then go higher with the inner position of your rear links or lower on the outside to compensate. Experiment with small increments and do one change only at a time to keep you aware of what change caused what. Your car is very unlikely to traction roll under those conditions.

Then fine tune with the shock angles. Stock springs tend to work well too.

Using lighter oils also allows the car to roll, but I feel that 50 wt oil creates a better balance than 35 and allows less rear toe in.

Also, if tire wear is not an issue, go with softer compounds as temperatures are very low!

I hope that helps a bit. And I love this car!

gtrmx, thank you very much for your valuable feedback, I managed to get some run time today at the race only to fall down the list, with brake failure that costed me a head collision with the barrier.

With the current setup, the car is much faster then last year, shaved a good 2 to 3 seconds off.

This year set the track record in the high 16seconds stop watch lap count, and not counter, closest was a 17.020 which was an identical car brand and model wise, different setup and using a Lola body.

The time I did was on a Touring Blitz Altis 2.3

I am going to play around with your feedback, and time the car on the lap counter system, working on small increments, am targeting 13 or 14 seconds per lap.

I did run 40 the night before, but Tyre did not last long enough switched out to 42, though I could feel the car being much faster in the corners.

I just based my oil selection for testing purposes on the track since most of the time i run 50wt as so you have mentioned, however 35wt sure felt different for sure, much more mushy, am taking into consideration the temps also, the car felt more "rolly", i also dialed down a little on the spring tension last night which clocked the 16s run several consecutive runs i must add, however today at the race the tackiness felt a little more on the high side, so increased the tension a little more, which ended up a little on the back breaking loose as the clutch kicks in, for sure will go back to the previous setting.

All in all, like u said, it's a killer car.

Though managed to set the second best TQ on the track that day, I spent most of the time to fix the brake which decided to give me trouble throughout the race and end the race in a crash breaking the rear hub.

Mechanical brake failure was my fault for having not cleaned the brake components carefully.

Pics of the car.

As was said in the other thread, I wouldn't worry about it but here are the different parts (hope i don't forget anything)

New chassis
New radio tray
New ackerman assembly (from the M3 car)
Went back to the older rear dogbones/CVD's
New 2 speed (from the M3 car)
New 2nd gear spurs (steel ring instead of aluminum)

Exclamation Parting ways with my kit

On-road racing at my local track has died down a bit and needing to part ways with my kit. Currently into 1/8 gas buggy. Selling/trading my kit that hasn't been raced (guessing less than half a gallon ran thru it) that much and has been collecting dust in my storage room. Engine may need to be opened up for cleaning. Here's a brief detail of my kit:

Kyosho V-One RRR Evo World Champion Team Edition Kit # 31260 with OS .12TZ(P) P3 and Skyline pipe set, painted Proline Dodge Stratus 3.1 body with decals (raced 2-3 times at local on-road track).

If interested, PM me or post here.
