Tim, I was trying to get your setup going, but it says to use 4mm of shims under the ballstud in the rear hub carrier. I was running Parma foams, and there really isn't room for any shims at all - I put in one 2mm shim and I couldn't mount the tire. Am I missing something?

I ran it with no shims, and it was just totally planted. I ran the next-longer ballstud mount on the bulkheads, and I'd like a little more stick, so I'm going to try your location instead. But even as it was, it was the smoothest car I've every driven.

MAJOR bravo to Jason, Tim, and crew.

The T2's I was battiling with last week in my Pro4 were looking at Cyclone-powered BMI dust all last night!!

Could you post a good starting setup with just shock oil, front springs, caster, caster spacing, batter location, center spring, ect. Thanks .
your running carpet right?

if so i would start with the following:
30 wt shock oil w/ olive spring(go to silver if you want more steering)
front springs are .020
10 degree blocks w/ both shims in front of arms to start.add castor if needed.
batteries full back.if the car is too aggressive on entry move them forward a little bit at a time.
also make sure you have no more than 1mm uptravel for pod droop.

No problem.

I use Parma foams also, but I use Schumacher ball ends and cut a notch in them so the wheel will not rub. The schuie ends are really tight and can be modified a bunch without worrying about them popping off.

Hope that helps. I think that I have a picture on my home pc. I'll try to remember to post it when I get home.

I usually run it 1 hole longer front and rear on the bulkhead, it just was a little better at this race shorter.

Tim
