The track got quicker on day 2 but was pretty consistent throughout the day. I will post my setup soon, along with photos, race report, etc...just as soon as I get caught up with everything. My setup was not that different than the one I use here. The major changes were lower rear roll center, softer oil and springs, a bit more rear toe, and gurney flap pulled all the way back.
Hey Garen - what setup did you mention that was very similar to the Asia event? Keen to see the look of this setup mate

Cheers - Frankie

+ YouTube Video
ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.


got the car on track - but with a poor setup as i was concentration on engine top end, due to crank issues on a very standard Novarossi N.21-7T - i used a Modified JP.21P-7L - it brought my engine speed top end alive, so i had limited track time today but the video is show casing our track in South Australia!

Now as i have spoken, the track has no traction compound what so ever, so as national meets are held or large club meets are on, the track can get better as the day goes on.

Today i struggled big time with off power steering, due to the body position on my car, but also i think i need to cross check the entire setup from scratch!

Garen, i might throw ur setup in from the link you gave me, it might be worth a shot - what do you think?


Regards
Frankie

Frankie, your car looks good. If you need more off power steering try the following:
1- softer front tires (this might make the car loose though)
2-softer front springs. if you are running the stock 'white' springs, switch to the front 'gray' springs
3-add front camber
4-if you are running shims underneath the front upper arm mount, remove them.
5-narrow the front width
6-try placing all the shims on the front axles on the outside.
7-if you have the front lower hinge pins in the outside position, try the inside position
8-if you have the front upper hinge pins in the outisde position, try the inside position

I forget where you have the body mounted. if it is too far back, then cut a new body and mount it slightly forward


I'll try to get my TRS Shanghai Setup posted today.

I always use option 1, the centre of the bumper. Most guys I know use this option as well.

Also, is that a Blitz body you using there? If so, I would mount it about 24mm from the bumper. Should give you more steering.

Not sure who makes alloy pulleys for the Motonica. Garen might know.

Measure at the middle of the bumper.

http://www.team-titan.com.tw/news.htm click on products, then Titan Products, then option parts, and scroll down. They made the 16T and 18T pulleys that I use, not sure who makes the front one way pulley. Maybe they do, but I don't know for sure.

OCC yes its a Blitz body R09 - will push it forward for sure this time about 25 mm from the middle - what Garen said!


cheers guys!

I got a reply from team-titan he put me onto someone here in Australia, but i am waiting on him to respond.


I know Mugen Shop sells the same stuff, any other places online sell the Team Titan products?
