Front
Gold spring, 70wt

Rear
Gold spring, 55wt
2' toe in, 3' camber
black sway bar

I am using front one way with rear solid axle.

setup also works great on rear diff but you need higher diff oil such as 10000 or above.


I will try your set up but I need to get to the hobby shop to pick up some diff and shock fluids, I will keep you informed of whats happening

Thanks

If I use this set up, will I be a member of team hardkore
I almost run the same setup except for the shock oils and I use 40 shore front and 35 shore rear. So with the heavier oil up front, that means you get quicker sterring response right? So a little more steering up front?

Default All most done with it

Well I am about done with this thing except for the bumper /front sway bar problem. The engine is the new Collari Turbo 5 port. Looks sweet. I want to send it to Dennis Ritchey but he seems really busy. So busy in fact that I am afraid to send it to him. Might take him forever to get around to it. Are there any other tuners out there who are as reputatable as Mr Richey? Also, Is there an outlaw class at delta and castle hobbies??

Saw your other post in the wannabe thread..J/K. Regarding the sway bar... you need to remove the stock sway bar mount. the piece that looks redundant. Just make sure you reuse the droop screws though..
As for the motor..just run it stock.. it's the fastest stock 12 out there.
Delta has an outlaw class, but not RCCAR (Castle). The latter has a 3 port non-turbo restriction.

One more thing... unless you're running overdrive, you need to cut the rear tires down to avoid handling problems..

The three product quality is a bit better quality then k factory. It is hong kong local made hop up and price beats up k factory.

Talking


Hey Jonathan! Good to hear from you! I was hoping to get a chance to talk to you. I remember you from the club that use to race over off of Industrial Blvd in Hayward. Adelmundo said you were still alive and kickin in the Wannabe R/C Guru thread! Haha! Anyway, Thanks for the info even though this newbie figuired it out on his own. How should I go about changing the overdrive? Upgrade the pullys to what? They are stock right now. The foams are 32mm and BRAND NEW. I hate to sand or cut them down! I would rather change the pulleys. I plan on going to Delta this Sunday. Hope to Hook up with you to gain some knowledge! I'm gonna send the Motor out to Dennis for the hell of it! Just use my stock MT12 for now!

ANDRE - I think most of us will be racing at CASTLE HOBBIES in San Jose on Sunday. There is the monthly on road racing over there DELTA would be the week after on the 14th. As far as overdrive, Kawahara makes an Overdrive pulley (25 tooth) which is being sold over at CASTLE. This replaces the 27th tooth pulley on the front front part of the side belt. Make sure you also get the proper belt for this pulley too which also sold by Kawahara over at CASTLE.

Sorry for the late reply Jonathan. It looks like this week is turning into a no go to Delta. See you on the weekends.
