This is kinda going around in circles

Let me ask then, does anybody think that uptravel limiters are worthwhile setting up? Some 1/8th drivers I talk to say that they are useful........

OK I have some questions about the Kyosho setup sheet:

1. Next to camber angle it has 0G/1G with 1G circled.... Any idea what that means?

2. The toe angle is measured in mm?? What the..... How do you measure that??

3. Rebound stop...... Is that the number of mm below the bulkhead?? As in +2 means the setscrew is 2mm long???

not sure what 1G means

For the toe, i have setup tools (similar to Hudy) and all the measurements on that are in mm.

for rebound/stop, in the pic you can see the area they measure which is the bottom of the susp. arm and bottom of the chassis. ive never adjusted those, too much hassle so i leave all those tricky bits free.

OK 1G means 1 Gravity, or in other words when the car is on all four wheels on the ground. You can measure camber and ride height, for example, with either a no gravity load (0G) such as when you have your car up on Hudy blocks and the shocks are uncompressed, or you can measure camber and ride height when all the shocks are compressed (1G) when the car sits on the grounds on all four wheels.

As for Toe, the mm states, if using a straightedge, if you line the straightedge on the rear wheel, the mm tells it how far in in mm it will hit the other wheel (I know it;s hard to explain but that's the best way I explain it). If that's too hard for you to understand, then just set your toe in for the rear at 2 1/2 to 3 degrees. That seems to be a good setting most people run.

Rebound/Stop is, if using a Hudy Droop Gauge and Hudy Blocks for example, the number of mm below the chassis bottom and the suspension arm. I have mine set to 1 mm in the front and 6 mm in the rear.

well, i dont think all those mm and 0/1 G do make any sense to RC car setup. I think Kyosho doesnt want their customer to use the sheet at all

the setup board marking should be in mm while the setup tools (similar to hudy) should be in degree !

Manticore do you have a good setup for foam tires on a medium fairly fast track?

I am trying to use the Kyosho setup as much as I can and it is OK, but I feel it could be better......

Thanks!!

I still havent the chance to run foam, I run rubber tire all the way as yet. if you want to run foam on V1R you need to get the longer rear wheel axle to accommodate wider rear form wheels.
