Here is a setup with Twisters at Fort Myers for Kyosho and what I will use as a starting setup at the nationals

Kyosho RRR EVO

Front
40shore Twister kyosho rim
199m wide
2 deg uprights
2.5 camber
roll center 4th position of all the way up
10 ackerman piece
Light blue srpings
middle shock position on shock tower
600 oil
stock pistons
1deg toe out
0 front droop measured at lower shock position

Rear
42 shore Twister 2deg offset Kyosho rim
200mm wide
3 deg toe in
4 camber
4th postion on roll center or all the way up
800 shock oil stock piston
Shocks 3rd hole up
Black wire sway bar
3 droop measured on lower shock position

17/23 60/56
Maw Power XL3 .5 shimm 25%
Max Power Pipe 2602
Maxy Racing Fuel 25%
Dodge Status 3.1 Cut on line centered on front wheels with no rake.
2mm spilt for tires 58mm 60mm is what I start with

With this setup if there is less traction try 37/40 or 35/38.. Setup has a lot of steering Some might like a smoother car so run same shore front to rear...

Twister is now running a special to help racers buy tires at a good price while things are getting tough. Sedan tires as low as $7.5 pair $15 a set. The sedan nats are coming up and saving money now is a good thing. Order your tires for the nats and have them there waiting for you at the race instead of bring them with you.

www.twistertiresusa.com

For those who are coming to the Fort for the Nats 37f 40r are needed and 40f 42r are used when the traction gets higher. The weather here in florida is really good right now but that can change and will require some softer tires.

If anyone needs a Serpent of Kyosho setup using Twister tires we will be more than happy to help. Dj and myself run at the fort many times a year and twister is the tire of choice for most of the drivers.

Go on the web site and send Kevin an e-mail of whats tires you want to order. He brings a limited supply to the races and he may or may not have what you need. I would plan ahead and not hope that he will.
