Stock pistons work everywhere. Personally I use AE oil so I won't confuse you with that. Most setups I have seen use 500 or 550 Kyosho oil on all corners.

Ackerman you should start with 10 and move up from there if you need more initial aggression. At the last two big races I attended, everybody was using 10 with the exception of me running 11**.

Stripped the servo post screws and had to stick with the lowest aluminum one

so shock pistons in order from smallest to largest diameter hole is 1.0mm, 1.1mm and 1.2mm?

occ,

Check out the setups on kyoshoamerica.com and empirercracing.com

I still have another 4 weeks before I can hit the tracks in ohio, I will probably start exactly with what I started with at Toledo last year (posted on empire's website)

I will then try the new stuff incrementally, with the exception of the body mounts, both of those are a no brainer.

You can only run the new lower a-arms with the 7-3.5 blocks because they are so much wider than the originals.

In lower traction I use the Delta 10-2's... in high bite I use the 7-3.5's

I always run the 0 degree nuckles

In terms of oil I usually run either 400, 450 or 500. The lower the traction, the lighter the oil. In toledo in the begininng of the year when the groove is lower than normal I run 450, when the bite is up I run 500. In parking lot tracks and Ft. Myer's this year I ran 400.

We always run the stock pistions, I know Toso runs the 2 hole pistons up front in low bite, I have yet to try that.

MorShah, go back a page on the thread, you can see everything that will be in the upgrade kit...

Twiggy - Sweet looking car.

Have any of you tried the short wheelbase? What did you think of it? I'm thinking about trying it just to see if I like it or not.
