ps: I have hudy setup station plus downstop blocks

another doubt. How drop affect in the car handling? My car has more drop on the front then rear and a guy on the track said this isn't positive and that I was loosing stability.. he said to set no drop, but I hesitate . I noticed when I break the front of the car dives What's the best set-up?
still nobody helped me..
sorry I don't want to annoy
This is my first Kyosho car and 0G camber is new to me..
another doubt What's +3 rear toe? I've never seen this setting

and congrats to people who ran winternats. Next year I will be there

i wanted to ask a question..when you have the perfect setup for a 5 minute heat with say small tires 60/62..what changes do you guys make for the final?
60/62 is not small ! - at the worlds we ran 58/56 for the 10 min qualifiers...

generally, I either use bigger tyres with a bigger split e.g. 63/60 ( as the rears wear it gets closer to 2mm) or if i need to keep using small tyres, then maybe use a harder shore on the tyre that wears the most.

HTH !

2D clutch works really good. It has 2 fly weights and comes with a red shoe. Tuning is more sensitive than the 3D but once you get the sweet spot, you'll be amazed. Just start with the stock settings thats in the instructions and go from there. KYOSHO AMERICA should have them.

Hello,
The default settings for the 2d clutch is:
0.3mm spring preload
0.2mm clutch gap
0mm end play

Did you change the clutch gap and/or end play or just the spring preload?

Look forward to the set-up sheet robert.

Will it be for V1-RRR or the evo, WC or evo WC version?

Default 2D clutch

Hi,
Does anybody know who used the new 2D clutch in WinterNats and what were the settings?

Are you adding weight (grub screws) to the flyweights? I spoke to someone using the 2D and they were doing that.
