Thanks for the reply. Right now I have enough rear traction with the upper rear pin in the default position. I usually run 3 to 3.5 degrees of camber on the left rear and about .5 mm less on the right side.

I want to try this option setting because I am going to be trying some DUAL COMPOUND FRONT TIRES in the near future. These tires will have an inner ring made from a softer compound that is intended to get to turn more. If this experiment works, I will offer these tires for sale through the Winner's Circle website http://gasrccar.com

I will test the tirese within the next 2 weeks weather permitting.

Paolo,
Could you post your set-up with the medium wheelbase? also can you tell us if you are running anything special.

Thank you.

I have no camera, but can describe it. When looking from the front of the car, the spring comes down from the front left side to the tank and out the back on the right to the lid. Hope that make sense.

I'd like some info on what you guys are running for clutches, flyweights etc.

For some reason there doesn't seem to be alot of talk on these cars and it would be great for some factory drivers set ups and insights to be posted.

I've only mounted up a few sets of tyres, but from memory they are about 68mm, so I'd pick the tyres as the problem. I think the split should be 6mm between the size of your rears and fronts, so I normally have to true the fronts down to keep that split with the rears. I guess someone will correct me if I'm wrong.

Have you tried to read the setup-book and checked all suggestions?

What color springs are you running on the car? Also what is your shock position?

Jeff,

The 902110 is a 950 tank which is slightly different thatn a 960 tank. The difference is in the area at the back right where the carburetor slide is. The 960 has a deeper recess to clear the carb slide.

The Vector tank is PN# 1430 and it is a completely different shape as far as the length and width and will not fit into the area provided on the radio tray.

I have both of these tanks in stock in case you can't fix what you have.

Happy New Year!

Yes, 72mm is a bigger tire, most fronts start at 70 but that only accounts for 1mm of excess ride height.

With the blue springs up front even with a minimum preload setting the front ride height is still on the tall side. The springs do sag a bit at first, so the ride height will settle a little, just run it.

also with the 960 parts, the spring retainers are now a much tighter fit to the rod end fittings, so verify that you have the rod end fittings bottomed out in the spring retainer.
