Default Tweak Problem

What setup are you using? Stock? If not, can you list them out?
I'm using the stock setup, I'm going to check to make sure my
suspension is not binding even though I think I check that but it doesn't hurt to double check

Thanks;

Like what Pyramid suggested, check to see if the dogbones have any lateral / sideward play when the suspension is compressed fully. If the dogbones do not have any side play upon full compression, the dogbones will bind the suspension causing the rear end to behave like that.

How's the car under hard acceleration on the straight? And when you lift off the throttle on the straight? Does the car pull to one side?

Look at what the chassis plate costs here and at Mushroom. The normal price in Europe is 70 Euro (US$ 85+) and I believe at Mushroom you got it for $40!

Look at the new arrivals at Mushroom, the Serpent ceramic bearings. I don't even want to know what these cost here in Europe!

1380 5x13 (2) $23.31USD
1381 6x10 (2) $25.06USD
1382 6x13 (2) $23.31USD
1383 6x15 (2) $31.33USD
1384 10x15 (2) $31.33USD
1386 12x18 (2) $31.33USD
1387 12x21 (2) $37.60USD
Yup Kevin, I think you're right ... I'm in europe but looks like I'll have to order from rc-mushroom if the-border does not get close to the other guy's prices.

Cool. This is with personal transponder? So what do you do to add weight to make it legal?

Also, in the LRP Masters open, Michael and Julius used a bar like thing stuck onto the rear shock tower to avoid the body shell from being compressed during pitstop. Do you have a clearer pic of that? What parts are needed for that? Does it really work? Thanks.
Naah! Apart from D, we're all fast. Not as fast as you (Per-Ola) and Julius but faster than D.

Now we hang out here to see if we can be faster than him at this forum too.

... but now we're beginning to be a bit ambitious I think. He's REAL fast ... with info, tid bits, etc complete with url's and part numbers. He has THE RING!

Hey Per-Ola, Julius see?

Some of us actually manage to be faster than D in the forum too these days! Soon he'll be relegated to the B-Mains!

On the other hand, when he gets here I'll exchange my 2.5mm chassis for his 4mm one.

Default Tweak Problem

I think I found the problem it's the suspension
in the right rear and also left front are
binding I lift them up and they stay up.

What's the best way to loosen up the suspenion.

Thanks;
Andre

Andre, check section 4.3 in the FAQ in my signature - there are some tips about how to overcome binding suspension.

If the FAQ tips don't make a difference, then for the front, try removing the smallest caster clip and see if the suspension still binds.
Also check to see that the alu adjusting nuts in the steering blocks and the rear uprights aren't too tight - this would cause binding on the pillow balls.

Don't be tempted to start removing material from the suspension arms, etc. until all other causes are eliminated - the fit of the parts should be very good and not give any problems with binding.

Cheers, Mark.
