First of all, thanks for the reply guys. I checked again the shock length, short for front and long for rear. I used the shorter ball joint at the front and longer ones in the rear. Measured again the length of both F and R shock. I'm still facing the same problem. Anyways, I trim the ball end shorter and solved it. By the way, I checked whether if it was the 2097 which was causing the problem but it wasn't, although it was very close to touching the screw within.

The one that comes with the car is very small and limits suspension travel.

Hey guys,

Been busy since this weekend, but wanted to let you guys know the LAB-C801 took the TQ and Win this past weekend at the Region 4 Race, Claiming the Region 4 Title for 2011.

The car was really good and was awesome all weekend. I will post a set-up later today. It is very close to what I have been running now for the last 3 events on 3 different tracks. The only change for this race was the front springs.

Where are all the Capricorn 1/8 scale setups? Is there a specific forum for setups?

You can try this for a starting point. Has been working for me around the few tracks I tried it at. From average traction to super high bite has been good. For lower traction use the rear roll center in the lowest position.

Hey DJ
Was the regional race at Nuggets?
You changed front springs from the attached sheet what did you go to and why? Was traction higher? We have had a few parking lot races and I have been using Kyosho white springs all around. The car turns good but would like more rear grip, I should have tried lowering rear roll centre, I have been at the middle postion for all races.

I used Mugen whites in the front. I was talking to Patrizio and they are making more spring selections for the 1/8 scale as we speak. Traction was lower and with a lot of tight turns. I used the white springs for better reaction in the front of the car.

Thanks "newera"

Everyone that tries it seems to be very happy. I am happy with how the new venture is going. With time it will really take off. We are already selling in different parts of the World.
