hi,

Was just wondering if there are situations where the small bore shocks perform better than the big bores (on the pred)?

Default Pred X10 and X11 carpet setup

Hi all,

I have a pred X10 that will be mostly run on carpet with minimal jumps, what would be the best setup ie shock oil/springs etc

I also have an X11 '08 lipo on its' way and again will be run on the same track.

Any help or info would be very much appreciated.

Cheers

Matt

Hi Matt, check out this link, http://www.teamnoidea.com/car-set-up-pages/team-xtreme/

I have been posting some X11 setups on here throughout the year. There is one from Maritime raceway which was all carpet.
Hope this helps

Martin

Hi Martin,

Thanks for the info that's exactly what I was looking for.

I have looked at the Maritime setup, are both front and rear springs HPI ones?

Cheers

Matt

Hi Matt, the rears were HPI blue but the front were standard predator blue. To be honest don't worry too much about the HPI Touring car springs, I was just experimenting a bit and they were slightly harder than the hardest predator "silver" spring. The car would be fine with the Predator silver on the rear.
As with any setup its all down to how we like our cars to handle and i've no doubt you will probably adjust things to suit your style but hopefully it will give you a good base. I know that the other team driver Will Johnson was running a completely different set-up to me on his car but he has a much more aggressive driving style.
Feel free to get in touch if you need anything/help and i'll do my best to help out

Thanks Martin your help is really appreciated

I will have a play around and see how it feels, I gave it a quick test last night at a local club on carpet with the previous owners setup but the back end was sliding all over the place and grip rolling
