Get the ballended ones. They are more flexible and you dont have to be dead on perpendicular to get it to work. I like the HUDY tools.

You only need a 1.5, 2.0 and 2.5 for the V1RR.

For engines I would get a Manticore modified RB X12. I have one and it HAMMERS. Fastest engine that I have run by a long way. It may not be race legal in your area however.

oh ok, thanks AMG....yeah I'll get the ballended ones. Thanks for the advice. I'll get the huddy ones, they look really nice. As for the engine i dont think that will be legal at my local track. The standard RBX12 is good too?

the toe angle may not be equal on both right and left tires at the front and/or rear, or one or more of ur tires may be won unevenly

HEYALIGNMENTGUY:

Roger that on the gold springs and settings. The track usually has good bite and I run a black rear sway bar. What oil do you find best matches the gold fronts and black rears? Do you find any benefits from messing with caster?



*Side note on the body:

I know everyone says the Stratus is the best handling body, but I refuse to run it. EVERYBODY RUNS THE STRATUS! When I do watch 1:1 full bodied car racing, I can't remember ever seeing a Dodge Stratus in the mix (there probably is one though somewhere). Why cannot the people who make bodies concentrate on the more exiting and current lineup of touring cars and make it handle as well or better than the Stratus? And the Crysler 300M, WHAT THE #[email protected]


I sincerely appologize if I have offended anyone who loves their Dodge Stratus or Crysler 300 body. I don't know where that came from.
Sorry have been in LA for a few days just got back

As for shock oil I use 80wht on all 4

have you thought of the Alfa 156 or Honda Accord
the Alfa works pretty well and its ROAR legal
I myself don't need a touring body I prefer the LOLA.
I race an outlaw foam class, so it OK

I am fortunate enough to have an Manticore modified MT12, I totally agree with your statment! put it this way, Manticore's version on my MT12 is totally legal, non turbo, 3 ports and it has unbelievable midrange, it is even stronger then the S5 on midrange!

i set my tyres depending on track..if its have more tight right turn then i set my rear left camber more than the righ ones. So at the end of 45 minutes final the tyre wear is even between right and left..

Front mount comes like:

But also you get a flat mount like the 1/8th scale style.
