I was useing the kawahara foams 40 in front 35 in rear stock spring in front silver in rear black sway bar in front and silver in rear. any help would be appreciated
You have your suspension too soft and you should have harder shore in the rear. try 42/42 F/R. gold springs all around. If you are using the new front sway bar, set it to softest positon and use gold in the rear.

As for camber link. use lower/inner and upper/hub. 55 or 60WT shock oil.

Hope this help

I will try that I have 60 wt in the shocks at the moment, I would have never thought that the car was too soft, Intersesting.
THANKS

Your setup is fine dude.. But do check your ride height. I have a feeling that your car is up there. Try lowering ride height to about 3.5mm to 4mm. For the 15 min main, I ran 4mm F and R. Try that first before anything else.

The silver rear is very soft, and so is the silver swaybar. I was getting very loose at high speed on a medium grip track due to a huge amount of body roll. So it could well be that the rear is too soft. Also check the ride height like Jonathan said.

Try to run a Stratus body for while and switch to Lola all of a sudden. You will know why I am so excited.

If you keep running Lola all the time, you can't get this excitment.

No it was not that it was the stock servo that came with the 3PJS....I think the KO2143 would have survived it....

Sorry .....to hear your mishap. I was there around 1PM with KevinK. I'm planning to go there next Sunday ...this time to race with Kevin and the other guys. If we have a good turn up , we can ask Karlton to run our class. Get yourself a GTP body.
It was a blast yesterday!!!
KevinK:
See you next week,dude!!!

Yes gotta love them Ko 2143's...I fried mine at DELTA RC yesterday since my steering wheel broke on my MARS and then it got the steering stuck on the servo which burned it out. I was so mad I had to go out and buy another 2143 today ($109+tax) and another drop down steering unit for my KO Mars Limited ($54+tax). Other than that my Mars Limited doesn't look like a limited totally anymore, but still I have one of 2000 and they ain't making them anymore ;p .
