Ok, cool. Still waiting on a callback just hoping I can get some help, still gotta find setups on my cars as well... I'm bringing a table and EZ up, will I need anything else? Extension cord?

I'm planning on being there tomorrow. Need to work out some clutch issues and get a final tuning on the motor. Hope to try out a front diff too.

Definitely bring extension cord(s) as I know power is somewhat limited there. They don't run a lot of electric at this track.

Would someone be kind enough to confirm when someone refers to 0.6 shim it means the total number of shims together equals 0.6 or the total clearance from the TDC ?

0.6 shim = shim thickness of 0.6mm

unless i'm wrong.

I am assuming you are going to the race at Crystal Park. There will be a few Kyosho team drivers (myself, Walter D. and Mike P.) at the race as well as plenty of other drivers there that are very knowledgeable about the car. If you need help don't hesitate to ask one of us.
Yes, I still run the 3D clutch...

Will you be at the track for practice tomorrow?
Spool is a must, then everything else stock. On tires I normally run 37 front 40 rear, or 40 front 42 rear; you will like the feeling of softer tires in the front.
I won't be there on Friday, but will be there early on Saturday; just like Scott said, don't hesitate to ask any of us for help.

Hmm, I only stocked up on 42's. Hopefully I can just make the setup a little more aggressive and get close to the same feel.

I'll be out at the track around noon today to get set up.

just back out the (pivot,pillow) ball, use the longer ball cup on one end of the upper link, at least that's what i did with mine, but i actually used the TI mugen upper link set up ball and ball ends..

I believe it's VSW007 which has the alu washers, they are basically shorter to compensate the offset difference.
