I do like a softer set up and with lots of suspension travel

Track is Small to Med. its a Oval Bowl like Daytona, The Sweeper is usually from a banked turn into a flat infeild, back straight is about 120-130 ft average lap times are in the 13-16 sec.
the real fast guys do it in 11-12s

As far as the universals are conserned I may give it a try. as far as the doggies popping out, only when I make a turn at full lock and bump the barrier does this happen. It has happed twice during the mains and about less than a min to go and I am trying to catch 1st place guy or trying to keep 1st place.
Basicaly I am pushing the car harder than I usually do
Hmmm . . . OK.
It's always difficult when you can't see the car, but a couple of things stand out to me.
Firstly, you have zero droop control . . . eeee . . gads! Install the droop screws and set them to about 4mm of droop front and rear. The rear droop is the one that really needs restricting, here. You didn't mention ride height so I'll assume it's reasonable . . . whatever that is.
Next, you might set the front bar at 45.

Do this stuff in order - you'll still have plenty of suspension travel.

For the doggies, try my servo saver travel restrictor - it really does work. Of course, a big hit just means that the something else will give - typically a steering arm will pop off, but that's a lot quicker to fix than an ejected doggie.

I know everyone says it, but we must stay of the boards.
For us, a decent race result is often more to do with limiting the time losses than it is with making the blistering odd lap.

Hope this helps.

No worries mate Will do on the droop screws also I installed my old universals from the R and shorten the track width about 1 mm per side seems to do the trick.

My ride height is set at 4.5mm Front tire at 6omm Rears at 64mm

Thanks for the advise

use the RR battery mount. you might need to trim some material from the mount to avoid blinding.

They talked about this on HK forum. From my understanding you need to cut the legs off your original plastic mount and screw it to the new mount.

manticore and dtm will know for sure.

That quick! Thanks guys... just a little bit more. Observe the original casing if I about to trim or cut away the leg is it means I will only left upper mounting of the original casing ( turn to be U shape without the back support which attach along the 2 legs ) then tape the battery with it and mount hanging ? He..he.. Photo please....
