Default Cat K1 Setups

Attached below is the setup i used at Silverstone Winter Series yesterday - high grip astro/carpet. I have found over testing that this is a good base starting setup and have been using at most places. The only changes I made yesterday was to go up 50wt all round.

Any chance of making this thread sticky? People are already commenting that we could do with a setup section. I will do my very best to put new setups up when i test/race etc and Im sure Tom, Grant, Danny & Llloyd will do the same where possible.

Simon is that right on the setup sheet, that you use 1.2mm pistons in the rear and 1.3mm in the front, or is that an error on the sheet?

The setup sheet is correct to what I've been running. To be honest I have been messing around with pistons in the front and this just what I have settled on for the time being. I run the setup with the bigger pistons in the front as at Silverstone I wanted the back to be pretty damped but the front to dip into the corners at low speed.

At Worksop I might well change this a little as I will want more rear end.

Attached is the setup i finished on at Worksop last week, my apologies for the delay. I made a lot of changes throughout the day and this is the setup i ran in the final. Was really pleased with the car in the final, nothing between me and Nath Waters (if any of you saw the final) and not massively slower than Neil. The car was far more balanced on the shock settings and handled the table tops etc much better. The majority of my changes were to generate low speed steering, hence the extra washers under the front inner ball stud. Ill be starting with this exact setup tomorrow at Broxtowe, so any comments/ discussions please feel free to ask.

Cheers

Si

simon had a s1 but i believe it was still a test item
simon also runs the alloy rear blocks and fine tunes with washers, which you can not get with the kit part. (sat next to him at worksop and asked the same)

Default Petitrc Race setup for clay.

So, this weekend was my debut with this beast, at the Petitrc race held at a cementhard clay track with varying grip, horribly executed jumps, and a reputation for killing any car you throw at it.

With the Schumacher in kit form, even though responsive and well jumping, this wasn't it's favourite playground. But I've only broken one suspension arm through a weekend of racing, and I now got a decent setup for clay

I switched to the white piston up front, Losi 40 oil, TLR green springs(3.5) and 7.5 yokes.
In the rear I had Losi 35 oil(felt heavier than kit), TLR yellow springs and a 1.3 mm Yokomo B-max roll bar, with a custom mount.

I was testing a few oils and springs, but this is what turned out best so far. I didn't have time for testing any links, toe adjustments and such, and the car is still a bit on edge, but this setup made me have the A-main pace, even if I couldn't deliver.

So far so good, I'm looking forward to more testing

Had a couple of pm's asking for my setup from Worksop on Sunday so i will do my best to get it up when i'm back from work tonight. My car was fantastic, best I have had it so far so hopeful I might have found a better base setup.
