Set up help

Some useful tips to help you get dialed in real quick.

  • Turn dual rate and/or steering end points down. If you normally run 100% best results are to turn down steering 25%
  • Use Lower grip/ harder front tires to help take steering out of car. Most cars have to much front steering.
  • Tighter diff will take steering from the car but car will square up off turns better.
  • Gear Diff is a norm on carpet due to how hard carpet is on ball differentials.
  • Lighter springs equals more side traction more lean.
  • CVD s that are worn and not over lubricated give more bind and more forward bite.
  • Tire Traction additive to the rear will give more grip do to softening of rubber.
  • Bigger wing wicker will give you more aerodynamic traction.
  • Move Battery around to get proper corner even lean to both tires. Pay attention to if car is leaning to much to front or rear. Try to avoid to much front lean. This will results in immediate spin out due to inside rear tire unloading.
  • Have a smooth steering hand. Front grip will be intensive if setup incorrectly.
