I gotta say, Epting got back to form within a couple of qualifiers, he was TQ for the first two qualifiers, then I tq'ed in the third qualifier, and took the main.

We'll have some awesome battles.

We also had SC, 4wd, and unlimited SC...
Thanks Freddy, really wish i could had been there today but im still at work, 16 hr day. But good run, there going to be some crazy battles.....

Hey, for those of you with RB5s, I need some help. I was told the Goosebumps would give me the most traction here, but they only made matters worse. So I put on my Double Dees, give them a nice coating of traction compound, and lower the ride height a little bit. The thing is the traction compound only worked for 2 1/2 minutes and my suspension got shot, resulting in only one quality run (1st qual). So I just want to know what you guys with RB5s are doing for setups and whatnot.

First You need to sit down with Brandon . D for the third time but heres some things you can try.

Second most of our setups are tweaked verison of this.
http://www.petitrc.com/setup/kyosho/...ut20090724.pdf

Third go see Brandon D. But goosebumps are what i use only out side or when the track is fresh from a new layout, certainly not a fast tire on a swept track, but i like Double dee's and what are you running up front that can make things just as bad..

Derick...Goosebumps do have the most side bite, typically can even cause the car to traction roll once the bite gets too high....it all depends on your setup. You do need to setup the car particluar to the type of tire you are running as well.

We will take a look at it later. But for now, I am running DD's in the rear and taper pins on the front. Also, there is added weight in my car and Im sure a BOAT LOAD of other things, but I cant reveal that to you over the internet

Traction compound on Double Dees?? why?? I only use traction compound on Losi pink compound tires, which are a bit harder than the Green compound double dees. Adding compound to double dees is a sure way to wear your tires faster.

I would say, work on your suspension set up, trim down your trigger finger, and watch for track conditions. If the track was recently wet down and swept, then you might get away with using goosebumps or flip outs, if you're a couple of heats down the list, then double dees or holeshots, if you're in the last two heats, when the track is dry and a groove sets in, then double dees or bks would work awesome. That's my assessments of the situation.....

Of course I could be wrong....

For the rb5 I would go by what brandon and freddy are telling you. I think my last rb5 setup was DD and Panther bobcats (very close to a taper pin)with a 10
.5. I believe spring were also orange fronts and lime rears or purple rear(one lighter lower on spring rate). This is from memory but I am totally drunk right now so I might be off on springs. Oh thanks again for coming ( westcoast and Proctor.)

Thanks Freddy. That sounds pretty good. I won't be racing the buggy for a couple of months, though.

It's also not all about the rear tire, your front has to bite enough as well when using gbumps, that's why Mark makes cut-shuts gbumps for front, it's perfect when using goosebumps rear. Anything else pushes on exit with the buggy and gives the appearance of no traction due to the inconsistency and ability of the front tire not being able to keep up with the rear.

Sidebite? Buy a Cougar. I think John/Mark have a few more in stock.
