This is the definition of DROOP from the RC Dictionary


Droop -- The measure of shock droop is the amount of uptravel the chassis will have if you weigh the car with its full running gear (servo, batteries, motor, etc.), settle the chassis (press down and release on the chassis), then lift each end until the tires lift off the ground. The total upward movement of the chassis at each end is measured as droop.

Ok, having problems with my clutch still with the 87095 bolt undone right to the edge of the 87093 shaft bolt (leaving just enough of a lip so the outside of the bearing doesn't rub) I thought this would allow the clutch to engage quite early, I'm also running 3x0.3mm + 1x0.2mm spacers behind the thrust bearing giving it just 0.2mm play. My clutch is still engaging well late IMO, like nearly a 1/4 throttle is needed to get the car rolling.
Am I doing somthin wrong here?

Cheers

Sounds like the clutch nut is too tight...I had the same problem, then re-read the directions and saw that the recommended "tightness" was only .5mm - .8mm, I was at like 1.5mm

Sounds like you might have too many or too thick of a washer behind the collet which is pushing the flywheel too far down the threads on the shaft.

Okay, I just realized that you are using 87093 shaft bolt for a stardard crank engine. Try a washer between the 87093 shaft bolt and the flywheel.

Hey guys just got the 2004 edition kit in. Gosh that super chassis is a lot different than I thought. Looks way different than the rs4-2 SC. Very gunmetal like and shiney and super lightweight, a bit different in person from the pictures ive seen. Im amazed.

Ill have the weight list of the stock , super chassis and 3 racing chassis tonight. Another thing I think I also found is the 3racing heatsink vs the stock heatsink is a bit lighter...but I havent weighed em yet.

Got lots to weight tonight. LOL and lots of decisions. Also got the mugen grey pad today so im ready to go.
