Those front springs are actually Mugens. I am not using any yellow pad. Not sure what you are referring to. I use the stock brakes, actually those pads are still the originals and the black pad for the clutch. I use the yellow clutch shoe with the standard clutch.

Also Xtreme is correct about the front knuckles. Those are pre-production and I have not changed them yet.

Also, we just had the first Florida State Race this weekend and I could only go yesterday. Today was an additional qual and mains, so I am not running today. But yesterday I set the over night TQ. It was close between Paolo and I, but Capricorn took the TQ. Wish I could race today, would have made for a fun race.

Thanks,

DJ Apolaro

Hey DJ nice ride!!!!!

Thanks for your support much appreciate and also to the others obviosly

How come you are running Mugen upfront - are they softer as i have no steering off-power and thought of running softer fronts.

Also what about the new chassis whats the difference and how come you are not using the flex system?

Thanks

The white mugen's are a little harder actually. They are between the stock and the yellow hards. Maybe add more rear droop travel to transfer more weight to the front to help with turn in. You can also make the rear camber link shorter to help this. Or make the rear camber link a little flatter. The less angle will help with turn in. A softer front sway bar in the front should help also with turn in.

Default Clutch Spring & Wheel base question

Can you kindly confirm that the clutch spring part number you guys recommend is as follows cap417sh.
it also seems that everyone runs a short wheel base and when I checked the car the only way to make it shorter is by adjusting the front lower arm spacers. So how do you run the car in order to make it shorter?

And how do you set your caster than?

Thanks

When you want to shorten the wheelbase you move the 2,0mm black clip on the lower wishbone from the back of the wishbone to the front of it.
The same thing you do for the upper wishbone, move the 2,0mm black caster clip to the front of the upper wishbone.
Because you move both the upper and lower wishbone the caster setting won't be affected.

Since I'm going to race my C801 for the first time this weekend I decided to check how much it weighs:



It's 100 grams underweight, this is not even funny any more.
This is completely stock with steel screws, standard servo's and even both front ARB systems, and a new set of tires.

Now I need to find a way to get all that weight into the car.

Can someone suggest part number for front softer springs and is it best to go with Capricorn springs. Also kindly forward part number for clutch spring that you guys are using with the yellow shoe. Thanks
