All we have done is dremelled the bottom. Dremell back and round off as this digs in when landing on some jumps. I have then rounded the centre so there isn't a lip.

Pretty sure this is spenner's car from earlier this year. You can see how cut down the bumper is from stock

Yes that is my car

The bumper is cut down and if you look at the front hinge pin brace you will see that has been dremelled too. This was the area we was working on at the Euros.

For now it is a short term fix but there maybe something on the way....

Will keep you posted

Setup for Indoor Astroturf Offroadtrack of BRCC (Charleroi, Belgium)

High grip mainly but some less, what makes it difficult. Also a series of short, steep bumps.

MODS:
pushrod-mod,
stickpack
droopmod: rear: new drilled holes in the shocktowers: +2mm, shockshafts showing 17mm
front: added 3mm washer in the shock, 2,5mm cut off ball end and shaft only 14mm showing
Anti-rollbar: extra medium hole drilled on all A-arms.

FRONT:
height: 16mm
shocks:
piston 2 holes
Precompression + blue
35wt (losi)
A-Rbar: medium
Tires: Schum MiniSpikes Yellow (worn out!!) with cut 2 outer and 1 inner row of spikes.
Toe-out: 1 - 2mm
20grams of lead under shocks
Caster: full back
Camber: 2░

REAR:
height: 23mm
Tower middle hole
Shocks:
piston 2 holes
precompression + yellow
30 wt (losi)
tires: Schum MiniSpikes (worn), cut 2 outer and 1 inner row of spikes
Toe-in: 3░
Camber: 2░
Hub high (lower hole)

GENERAL:
Spektrum
MRT personal transponder
Rear wing 17cm, 1cm gurney
Front wing: 2mm washers under rear part.
Lipo CS 5200mAh (30C?)
Tekin RS Pro
motor CS 6.5 sensored.

!! all this with very worn Shum MiniSpikes Yellow. When i tried some new ones, even cutting away several rows of spikes, the car still had some griproll.
I might want to try some Schum Minispikes blue (which i had not when training).
I also tried Schum Staggered ribbs in the front (what a lot of 2WD AND strangely, also lots of 4WD-drivers use on the Schum Cat and B44) but that made the car twitchy and nervous.
Spikes are the way to go with a Pred.


! Also I found the car a bit better with the modded front hubs (lowered); smoother in the turns.


[edit]
last minutes changes, after yesterdays training:
higher in the front: from 16 to 18mm
made the car go easier on the bumps, but lost some traction and steering.
I then removed both rollbars (which i usually never do ?! ) .. and I gained some traction again + even better on the bumps + easier to drive on the changing-grip-section of the track. Don't know why, but it helped. (Can someone explain?)
I do want to test out with some Schum MiniSpikes Blue in the front though.

And I also want to try out with more lead in the car, making it heavier.

Thumbs up roll bars removed.

how you doing mate?

I found with my x11 once roll bars are removed, you seem to have more pivot with-in the car. the only thing that was a down fall for me was that the car would want to flip over under hard corner speed. I think that is do with how the pred is so flat?

hope this helps.

@ Lowie : could I use your setups for an indoor grippy carpet race with Minipin yellow tires ? You use a low ride height but how many droop in mm do you use front / rear ?

Thanks

Default grass setup MAC Vlijmen

hi all,

This is the setup I used on the last round of belgium/dutch nationals
It was run on a grass track that became very bumpy with big holes after a whole day of running the day before the race.

The car has big bore shocks, the orange steering parts, lipo chasis, and the short pushrod mod

Front:

wheels parallel
camber: -3░
caster: all spacers in front of upper wishbone
anti roll bar on soft (outer position)
droop: standard
ride height: 25 mm

shocks:
oil: 35 Losi
piston: std 2 hole
yellow spring + precompression gold
no limmiters

Rear:

toe in: 3░
camber -2░
droop: standard
anti rollbar: soft position (outer position)
ride height: 25mm
shock location: hole c= bottom hole
Rear hubs high= bottom hole

Shocks:

oil: 40 Losi
piston: std 2 hole
spring: red + precompression gold
no limmiters

I drove the car with a one way shaft but I think the solid shaft would have been better.

Tires:

front: schum minispikes yellow with one inner and 2,5 rows of outer rows cutted down
rear: schum minispikes yellow with one outer row cutted down

motor: CS 7.5 turns geared 21/72
esc: Nosram
Battery: kypom 5800 35 c stick pack

30 gr of brass under front shocks
30 gr down the spine of the car (next to the battery)
Rear wing: 7"

Car felt gr8 over the bumps, I also loosened the slipper about 1/16 of a turn so the car was more stable during acceleration out of the corners.

cheers

I know these cars aren't as popular here in the US as they are in Europe, but i wondered if anyone had a decent Indoor Clay setup?

I would love to get my hands on one of these cars and a good starting point would be helpful.

Are people still running these with much success? I see some pictures but is anyone making it into the top 10 consistently with the X11?


Thanks

Thanks for the reply on the camber links are you refering to using the left on the right hand side and vice versa?
