Hey DJ, everything's fine, hope you are fine too!

Do you come to Argentina to the South America Cup? I will go there, I think it will be an interesting event.

Looking forward to meeting you soon.

I do not think so. I have no information for that race and I already have a full calendar. Have fun and talk to you later.

Winracer: thanks a lot for upload your setup. Itīs work very wel only i have a couple of changes about it.

thank for all

Gabriel

Car is a standard V8 with no CEFX parts except for the bulkhead brace and front shock tower. Standard plastic, eccentric hubs with the bearings down all the way around.

Front:

Shocks: white springs, stock pistons, Losi 40wt oil, lowest hole on tower.
3 degrees camber to start, adjusted by wear, 1 degree toe out.
long wheelbase.
Flat sway bar.
Upper arm position up, no spacers under the deck.
-1 droop.
Ackerman, bellcrank in the back hole, plate adjusted out (I think, need to look at it again)
Tires, Jaco 32's 66mm
Track width 253mm

Rear:

Shocks: white springs, stock pistons, Losi 42.5 oil, one hole up from bottom on tower.
3 degrees camber to start, adjusted by wear, 3 degrees toe-in.
Optional adjustable bar full soft (blades flat, inner hole on arms)
Lower hinge pin position, full UP (this is the key)
Upper hinge pin position: My TQ run was with it down. Moved it up which settled the car down and made it easier to drive but was slower. Left it up for the main.
2mm spacer between upper arm outer ball and upright.
Droop 10mm
Track width, 261mm I think but need to measure to be sure.
Tires, Jaco 35's 71mm

Body, protoform 909 mounted at 21mm with Shepherd rear post extenders in their highest position. Gurney was pretty high, maybe 10mm.

Ok, it's a bit off the wall but if you want a car with really aggressive steering that still has good forward bite off the corner, give it a shot.

I don't have the aluminum servo saver yet so I don't really know. I hear you need to run it very tight but have no experience with it. I seem to be one of the few people that has no problems with the stock servo saver.

Hey Rick-

Rumour has it that a white guy is going to show at the RCX race with a Velox8 in Shanghai at the end of the month. Is that white guy you?

If so, I need a resupply of socks and underwear.
