(i will have to save money to be ready for the local championships here and on my actual status i cant attend the two roads) ...

I will go to the preworlds to colaborate with Brazilian (and foreigner) Yokomo Team, take a lot of pictures and film-making ... but will not attend the event as a driver ...

Thanks a lot to all of you that send me letter with tips about setups and all ...

I will keep you informed as the event appear to start ...

cya again ! ...

Sorry to hear this, but such is life. My thoughts are with you. Hope everything turns out well for your relatives.
Keep us informed on the Pre-Worlds.
God Bless you.

JWF-Franni. I need some setup help on the GT4 for Revelation, as you allready know. Im running 60wt oil all the way around with #2 Asso. pistons in the front and #1s in the rear. Springs, gray front, yellow rear. The shock position on the towers are the same as yours, and on the inside hole on the lower front arms. 3 degree camber in the rear, and 2 in the front. The toe in the rear is 2 degrees, in the front 1 degree toe out. The caster clips are all in the back of the arm.

Tires. I like to run 45f 42r, but sunday these were not working, so I runed 42f 40r, and the car was good.

My only problem is that I cant go into the turns with any kind of decent speed because it will traction roll, and honestly I have been stumped. I dont know what else try.


Thanks in advance.

nitrodude I already forgot what the piston # for ass. stands
for but I use the rayspeed pistons with 1x 1mm for the front
and 2x 2mm pistons for the rear. For your traction rolling
you really just need to cut the tires down and make sure your
tire diamm. is not over 60mm. The bite at rev on sundays is
just really good.

The biger the number the more dampening it has, so the #1s are the lightest, and the #3s are the heaviest. i gues I will have to true my tires after all.

Thanks

I think you'll just have to True your tires down because your
setup seemed fine you might need a little more dampening
but its hard to tell untill you have the right tires size on.

It all depends on your budget, and if you want to race legal sanctioned races, club races, or just bash around parking lots.
There is a lot of possibilities, also LHS support is important.
What do you want to do??

the local guys are buying more of now.
