Default Thanks Mike

Thanks Mike, Im glad I got to meet you too. Sorry I didnt get a chance to come down to the pits where you guys were at more than I did. I was thrashing on both the 18th scale and outlaw car. You and Ron did a great job in making the show. Hopefully next time the traction will be where its supposed to be. Good luck this year racing and Ill see you and Ron hopefully at the Nats.........Kurt

Where are you running? Whats the surface type? What's the track type? Need more info for a set, but I'd just set the car to stock and tune for personal preference. I'm not that far off from the stock MRX4 settings and it handles great for my needs.

Default Just some quick questions.

Hi all:

Have some 'maybe' stupid questions, but, searched on the thread and nothing about has been told. I'm coming from a MRX-3 and something is 'new' for me.

Regarding the rear body mounts (long/short - H0466C & D) and their mounting positions (Inner/Outer). What does anyone of those and the most important (what to & when to change them). Or shouldn't bother about them?

Hard chassis. The most shocking I've heard is it works much better on low traction tracks Any word regarding this?

BTW: Just talked with a friend who's running the national meeting in 1/8, by the moment, the top 3 over a >70 racers meeting are three Ninja R01 engines (over a bunch of Plus35's, JP's and other heavy ammo), tomorrow are the finals, more about this, tomorrow.

Hi

I personnaly prefer to run the longest bodymount arm in the most upright position. I found the longer arm gives more steering, and the more upright the arm the more downforce that is transfered from the bodyshell.

As for the chassis, I tried the optional chassis at the Euro B's in Bamberg last year, and this did seem to give more rear end traction. The track at Bamberg never really built up lots of grip, nice black line on it but nowhere near the grip expected. I've yet to try it on the MRX4-R...........

I can believe the Ninja is doing well, I ran mine last weekend in the British Championship and was very impressed with the power, especially low down power. Shame it rained on the race day as I think a win was on the cards.....

Default setting up mrx4 to default settings.. tyre camber question

hi all
im going to run the mrx4 for the first time this sunday

ive set it up to the kit setup thats 3degrees camber on the rear
will this wear the tyres in on an angle or flat ?

or will this reflect the track conditions
it just feels like the tyres will wear in on angles and not flat because the outside edge is lifting off the ground.


do you guys true the tyres down on angles using the truer ?

The most used value is around 3 degrees. You must try to wear the tyres with some coning. The tyre wear will depend on how quick you're on the track and how much you slide the rear, if you're staring probably 3 degrees will be too much and you will cone badly the tyres, try with a little less of camber (2 degrees).

Beware with less camber and tyres used, if the edges of the foams get sharp is very easy to chunk them (carry some contact cement, shoe goo or similar - no CA) to glue them.

Front camber is another story, some one will insist on a fixed camber amount. I start with some value and I'm moving the camber values depending on how the tyres wear (if they cone, a little less camber), the key is to wear almost flat the front tyres.

I true them with a 1.5 degrees of angle, then, on the car the first laps are delicate, but after the tyre will be completely seated and the grip, maximum.
