Cool Set-up for the Dirt (with LIPO)

Si,

Could suggest a set-up for the dirt, with a LIPO pack? Seeing as it is lighter, one would probably only need to adjust the shock collars for the ride height? Would lighter oils also be necessary? What has your testing revealed?

Thanks again.

We run on 8th scale buggy tracks so our cars are consistently jumping 20-30 feet in the air and I have the LiPo version running 35wt in the rear and 40wt in the front. I haven't run it yet but I will tonight and I've seen the side to side weight bias is very nice with the LiPo.

Also last weekend I was running 35wt front and rear and it was a bit to soft in the front

I've not tried yet, but would normal hex's fit on it?
I've got a cart load of HB wheels, so wondered if they'd fit?

Thanks for the setup Si but I have a few questions:-

What is the 36T pulley mentioned in the internal ratio section? I only see a 34T pulley being the largest size to get the 2.8 internal ratio.
Do you run the ackerman bar with 8mm between the ball cups as per the manual?
Also the front link bracket you say is 43mm I presume this could be a prototype part as according to the Turnbuckle length guide this is now supplied as U3442 38.5mm rather than 43mm as stated in the manual.
The Worksop report says you ran the 6.5 motor, did you change to the 5.5 for the final?

What difference does it make by running the height of the diffs low or high?

I can recommend the setup from above with Schumacher mini pins and medium foams. I ran this setup on Friday which was a mixture of polished floor and some carpet and it ran very well, much better than my initial setup that I ran which was waaaay off

Is Mossy's setup from above with Lipo or NIMH and if with Lipo was there any weight added?

My car is 1602gr with lipo and no added weight and to be honest it seems just fine and dandy but would still be interesting to know

I finally found a Freeware program that allows to open, edit and save PDF's.

Only downside is that it will make some mistakes in the graphics( At the Cat SX setup it won't show the blue parts)so you will have to edit a prefilled setup to know what you are writing.
Opened in Adobe reader everything is then shown in full beauty.
