Look I'm not trying to stir you guys pots, I'm trying to stir your mind. There's way more to setting-up a good truck vs. a "throw this oil and that spring" at it mentality, which, is the easy way out....Yes, you may get lucky and hit the sweet-spot, but it was only by luck, not skill....Now take 10 plus hours on your set-up (by reading aforementioned thread) and you will kill and make your competition look like fools, I kid you not.........it works. BUT it takes work and time.
On my truck (STRC LCG) I had 15 different shock-position settings on the rear and 8 on the front (per-side) to choose from ,tower/arm. I also had 4-sets (rear), 3-sets (front) springs to choose from.....Add that combo up.....But you know what, I finally hit it (balance) after 4 hours, sore fingers and worn-out screws.......I think I'm spot-on on the oil, 35 Losi FT, 30 rear, how do I know if the effort so-far paid off??
I went from being a 4th to 6th heater to a 2nd to 3rd. Almost got TQ and I have not messed with the links yet. I'm still loose.......Read and learn. I'm an old-stubbon fool too. Most of you guys were not even born when I had my first real R/C car....
1978..... LaTrax Corvette.........Google it......it was a fast on cads too!!!!
Here's my grandchild.....Not too bad for an old-fart......Low, fast and lotsa droop!!!
