Well a few guys that are regulars at the lhs have started getting together and running on a mid sized dirt oval. My slash has been a basher since day 1, but I took it with me to check out their track and realized I had a lot of tuning to do as sc10 2wds were keeping up with me. I'm much faster in the straights, but the corners cause havoc in the 4x4
I've followed the slayden set-up, while changing a few things along the way. I pulled the diffs and decided to run 7k rear, and 50k front. The 4x4 pushes going into the turns and gets loose coming out. So a light rear fluid and heavy front fluid should help with this. I've adjusted the turn in to be biased for a left turn ( its all left hand turns) and am going to play with camber adjustments to get the best bite I can. Right now I'm set at 3* on the front right and 4* on the rear right. I have the left side adjusted to 2* front and rear.
Now, I think the truck should dive into the corner pretty good and be more controllable on the exit but, I was also having trouble with the truck going absolutely nuts when trying to accelerate with any moderate throttle. I believe some was due to the fact that I'm running switch tires on a hard pack clay like surface with some blue groove in the back corner, and also that I had the slipper locked with the revo slipper and alloy pads. I went back to composite pads and adjusted to a 1/2 turn out from tight to allow some slip. I was thinking about the center diff but I'm worried that it will melt with the 2400kv system I run 3 and 4s batteries.
This is a backyard racer, so I'm not looking to go lcg and a whole bunch of race oriented parts, if I was going to do that, I'll bring my vorza with me to the track. I want the truck to remain a decent basher as well.
Give me some more ideas for my set-up
