Default Pavement set up

Guys,
yesterday evening I had the oportunitie to test the set up I definied as the start to my L8.

Diffs: 50/50/10
Shocks: front oil 45/piston 56 - rear oil 35/piston 56
springs: front grey / back green
camber: 3° front and rear
tires: Slick
ratio: 48/15
SB: 2.3 front / rear

The initial feeling is that the car, has so much stering in OFF power, making the rear end to spin.

Probably in the next week end, I sould try 2.7mm sway bar in the front end, and if it is not enought, put the thicker oil in the front diff.

I will post here the reaction of the car after these changes OK.

If your running the car on pavement you really need to look at the heavier spring sets at www.rc4less.com

Bruce has two sets for the stock 8ight shocks. The softer set goes from 5-12lbs. and the heavier set is 10-2?lbs.

Perfect for high bite oval or pavement racing.

Hello
after some tests I've made, the best set up I found to my L8 is:

diffs: 50/50/10
shock: front oil 50/piston 56 - rear oil 40/piston 56
springs: front grey (1 coil of) / back white
camber: 2° front / 2,5° rear
tires: Slick (medium front / soft rear)
ratio: 47/15
SB: 2.7 front / rear
Body: Protoform PF8-GT
Clutch: 4 aluminun shoes / springs: 2 green/2 gold
engine: OS VZ-B 0.15mm shimm / P3 glow / 9mm (blue) carb insert / Byron 20% gen2 fuel / OS-2060 pipe

The car is amazing. Perhaps, the next change I planning to test will be the chassis. The actual 2.0 TFT chassis is sound like so much flexible, and I really belive a firm chassi should help on it.

Next sunday, I will attend in a local GT Class racing. It is pratically a racing betwing friends, but it will be a great possibility to evaluate the performance of this car in comparison of the others GT.

Lets see what will happens.
Next week I'll post again.

i ran at stateline and planned on wheatfeild in indiana and never did. jcp looks great. almost thought about the jcp pumpkin race oval then go offroad although selling L8ight so whoever buys can get a couple races in before winter. its difficult to balance offroad and oval..

That's the trouble I'm having. Every week something gets ignored. My buggy is still sitting dirty from a race a couple of weeks ago.

I seen your sig somewhere and it crossed my mind that at least im not the only one running both. I enjoy the maintnance part of both and all but going to races with oval fri and offroad sat gets hectic. money can meet a balance if you camp and eat bologna but not getting good nights sleep camping drags me down. altogether after my conversion im going to lose 30% of money i put into late model car(transponder to engine) after its all sold. At the same time i built my late model i also sold my 1.0 truggy and bought a new 2.0. Truggy seems to be a luxury to race of some sorts but both bug and trug being offroad its so much smoother to balance them in same day races.
