Good Day Eh!
« on: November 17, 2012, 05:39:40 PM »
Hi All,
   My buddy from islandrc sent me your link. I was impressed by your not for profit fun and competitive racing for all levels of rc truck nuts. The track looks very impressive. We came out to one of the races a couple of weeks ago, looked like everyone was havin a blast.  I ordered myself a slash 4x4 ultimate to get started. It should be here in a few days. I am looking forward to come out and have some fun racing.  I have a good area to practice out back. I know the upgrades are only limited by my wallet, I will have to decide on any upgrades as I break it, in. lol  I was wondering if there is any adjustments I can make to the out of the box setup so I am not a total loser when I come race.
Thanks for any help, Rob

I plan on coming out Sunday and introducing myself in meeting you guys. I hear the more the merrier.
I got my slash 4 x 4 ultimate last week in the mail.
I got a track set up in the backyard and have been able to burn off a few packs. I am still using all the out of the box settings till I get use to it.
I wouldn't mind running some laps on Sunday. What adjustments can I make to the shocks with spacers and mounting holes to make it drive better on the carpet? or any other tips to prep me for the race would be helpful.
Thanks

Great to hear!

Move the bottom of the shock's to the outer hole on the arms and shock tower, this will make it lower, stiffer, and less progressiveness, and take out shock spacers till you have about 12mm ride height. The stock spring's are also junk, at some point you will want to get some Losi blue 2.5inch springs for the rear and losi 2inch blacks for the front, shavers and hobbies carries both of these. Bumping up the shock oil to 70F/65R will also help for indoors, with or without the spring change.
