Good question would be cool to know what's new in 2014 or whether an update.

[QUOTE=dj apolaro;12434513]Without using numbers I will explain how the links work and you can see what position you want to use.

Just know this, the longer link give more stable feel with less reactive response.
The more angle the link has, the more off power stable and more mid corner and exit rotation
The flatter the link, the more off power steering (slide) and more traction once you get on power.

Hope this helps

Dj, one question about the angle.it is the same if it is angled from the hub or the camber plate??

Sorry I took so long. I was out of town at a race. It is different on the hub versus the inner pin. The further in the pin is, the more roll the car should have and also be more stable since the arm is longer.

This weekend we finally had the shakedown of our 1/8 electric car.
I think the amount of power is 90% there, just need a little more topspeed.
Now we can focus on improving the handling, you can see in the video it's nose heavy which causes a lot of understeer.
A new design to cure this has already been made and hopefully we can test this within two weeks.
The car is based on a Capricorn C801.

Nope, since this is the first electric 1/8 which can beat a nitro version I'm not planning to post any pictures.
I did post some renders of the mule I designed to develop the drivetrain and power package. That's basically the car you see being tested in the video.
The actual car will be a ground up 1/8 ep design.

Just a shame though ..... its still an electric car when all said and done.
Maybe you could put a tape recorder on it for the car like sounds?!
