Put the car on a setup board and check all the settings per the kit setup sheet as mrgsr indicated. That would be the first thing I would check. If you don't have a setup board, download the Hudy Set-up book from this web site and eyeball it.

How do you guys like the Kyosho tires? How do they handle and how does the wheel hold up?

Try using light oil in diff rear diff.....
start with 10000....
use stock droop 0 front 4 rear
track width 200 rear 199 front
toe in rear start at 3 degrees
front sway bar soft(horizontal)
rear sway bar soft like 1.8 or softer
600 wt shock oil....black springs front -rear
camber 4 rear 2.5 front
rollcenters lowered front and rear
shock positions laydown

hope this helps
this is just a rough setup dont hold me to it

front diff might work if the track is real slippery.....

Make sure that when you tighten everything down, your car is sitting on a setup board. If you want to reduce the play, you can use the Kyosho 3mm shim set (Kyosho 96641 3x5 Sim Set - 0.1mm, 0.2mm, 0.3mm ; 10 each) to clean things up a bit. There has been some discussion if there should be any play at all. Some say that there should be no play at all - some say there should be some. I use shims and when I reassembled my car recently, I did have maybe 0.1-0.2mm of play.

Were you in a crash at all or has it always been like this?

it's brand new, as soon as i finished building notice the play on the arms, the bulkheads looks stretched where the upper arms go, more on one side than the other.

i just disassembled the front sus. and put it back up and the slop was reduced considerably, it has about .5mm now, looks like the belt tensioners was the cause of the slop and the diffence between one side and the other.

T-shirts.... everyone should get one, they are way cool. Just make sure when you guys order the team shirts, put a note on the order that Dom told you about it so Joel knows I'm doing my promotion part of the job! While you are at it, don't forget the pit towel!

Dom
Dom,
You think we can have a pit towel that just says "KYOSHO"? The current version with the EVOLVA WORLD ChAMP stuff is okay, but I don't even run that car. Also, it says 2005 and gives the impression of a dated product. Can you get the ball rolling for a new pit towel? I think the kyosho in you avatar would be a great template to use.
