I race here in St Louis with Drew and the rest of the crew at Evolution. Trying to get the car ready for the season and wanted to completely rebuild the car. Thanks for the help.

For which track?

I'll send you an editable set-up sheet for the sedan...

It was travel for me either way. 2 hours by plane sounded better than 5 by car. I will probably see you in Vegas in April.

I do not cut camber I let the tires wear naturally. Although if your rushed and can't practice I heard 1 deg..02

Mike - thanks for the reply. Is there a general setup you start with when going to a new track? If not, I would say Toledo is closest to Evolution for design. Thanks

I am not answering for Mike but, if you go to MugenRacing.com and look under the "parts list" pull down there is a link on that page for race setups. I believe Swaugers setups for Texas, Toledo, CP, REV and Vegas are on there.

Thanks for the reply. Those are good, but they seem pretty old and look to be on the non"R" version of the car. May be the same, but I was hoping there was a more recent one floating around.

Mike - if it's not easily available, no worries. I've got both Dave Diehl and Drew Ellis locally I can ask as well. They're both extremely helpful here at the track.

It's funny, I haven't touched the car since the Nationals in Cinci and this stuff just disappears from my memory (track width, droop, roll center settings, shock oil, etc...) Too much electric offroad during the winter - it dumbed me down......

not meaning to be a pain either, but Mike it would be nice if we can see some setups that are more current. Maybe something from the Nats or Winternats.

i found that when checking droop it lifts so much that the spring comes looe from the shock. im more or a touring car driver but im new to 1:8 this just seamed weird
Yes, trust me it seems like a lot but on the track the car handles like a dream.

thank you
ill see how it goes this sunday

last time i had all the front droop removed pretty much and the car still understeered mid to corner exit

wat are some things you recommend me try?
i tried putting red rear springs on the rear and this kind of helped

i was using 35 shore tires on a high grip track and these were pretty hot after each run so i guess they were over heating
i have 37s for this weekend

Front sway flat?
Body mounted forward ?mm and which body?
Rear roll center? 5.5, 4.5?
rear toe?

My home track setup worked really well at fort myers and it's not far from the base setup.
