Yes, good question. The P56 is the tightest body I've worked with since the Mazda 6. Start off by marking the center of the wheel openings both front and back. Work on just one side of the body, the wheel openings are not symetrical side to side. I use a square and draw a verticle line through the center marks on the wheel openings. Place the body on the chassis and center the verticle lines between the f&r axles. For some reason, most of the bodies are layed out for a shorter wheelbase. So the centerline of the front opening will be behind the axle, and the rear will be in front of the axle. Just center it up the best you can.

I always mark the front first. Make sure the cut line at the bottom is parallel, or level, to the work surface, as it will sit on the car. In most cases the front body posts will contact before the back. Do not place the body so that both front and rear posts are touching. Mark and cut the front holes first, then put the body back and mark the rears. If you mark the front and rear at the same time, it will shift the body forward. Remember to keep the body level when marking the front. There is no margin for error, take your time, it is a tedious body to mount.

The bumper may cause some difficulty. The nose is very short. Remove the foam from the bumper to make sure there is no interference. You can shape the foam afterwards if it is a problem. The rear posts will cut into the wing mounts just slightly.

Ran mine for the first time last weekend and I love it. Feels like the next generation Stratus. Good luck.

The guys that have those setup sheet are currently at the worlds. I've never seen a published sheet from them for that track.

I ran the Nats there last year and I ran the box setup with some changes.

Front diff=200K
Rear Diff= 80K

Wheel base 2mm short in rear/ long up front

I started with 37f/40R tires (I ran 40/42 in main)

1 hole piston front/ 2 hole rear 1000w oil.

Blitz Altis 2.3

Hope this helps

Looks like we are going to get a lot of new goodies after the Worlds...

Look at this:

http://www.serpent.com/news/13127/US...LS-system.html

Looking at the photo of the car, it looks like it is a team drivers car, I can see the white "prototype" spur gear, the belts look different, looks like the optional brake disc is on it.

Look at the number of shims on the rear arms

Yes, looks interesting, but also looks like a bitch to get and KEEP it adjusted correctly.
Wondering what it does when you get a hit on the rear wheels?

This is Michael Salvens car. I have seen him drive this configuration just before he left to the USA. I was wondering then why he did not drive with a rear stabi, but this explains a lot.
