Once you find the sweet spot, this car handles amazing. This chassis responds very well to setup changes, and you do have to adjust your driving style a bit. Switchbacks are crisp and snappy, plastic parts and all. I find most of the low slung bodies ugly, so I won't be missing them. :lol:

Yeah I do too, but I worked on that abchobby supra.... Oh well, on the soarer... Oh and the Tamiya R32 of all shells has more spur clearance that I know to date! You can go 90t spur with that one. Have you tried super soft springs in the rear? with soft-medium set up in the front? try it changes the game a whole lot.

Higher ride height will make the spur gear higher relative to wheel height, and my alignment/camber links are set for 6mm resting height with body on. People running 10mm ride height will have different results than I do. So far every yokomo nissan s series and toyota shells fit without any problems. Closest fit for me is yok fd rx7, but I only bought that shell on a whim. I won't be running any tamiya shells on it tho. People are making a big deal out of it, as if other front midship chassis doesn't have this problem.

Well I got the 90t spur and 22t pinion combo on there yesterday without a low pro servo! Yep! and I want to say that a 91 or 92 could fit as well (If I could find them), without the low pro servo. Now the problem that comes up is body fitment now! The Tamiya S15 fits really good, along with any S15 shell for that matter! You can slam the shell without any problems, Now the R31 and Leopard fall into the same catogory with the s15 shell. Even the TAMIYA FERRARI FFX! That was meant for the O.G. TA05 with the lay shocks?!?! But get this, the HPI CAMARO AND SUPRA won't fit due to the spur?? I need a second chassis just because I have a ton of bodies, LOL! I just might get the DRB or DLIKE re-r just for those reasons..HEHEHEHE.. then wait for Yokomo to make a front motor chassis!

Well I can't lie, they have a few that I will get/trying to get my hands on, like these as follows : JZ100, 190mm AE86's/ with kits, RX7 190mm with kit, ls400, and All the Camaro's.
Now if they turned up the quality instead of quantity , like on a Tamiya/ABCHOBBY /Street Jam and Yokomo's level durability with their level of detail They would have a lot more awesome products out there.

That's why they're so cheap. Many of their shells have oversized wheel wells, so you have to mount hpi shells lower than others. They just don't look right. :down: Glad to hear there are no problems with yokomo shells

Okay here's the best tip for this chassis. Super soft springs rear (Vertex whites) and Tamiya Yellow's or Red's up front. 450/350 F/R oil and Tamiya drift tires Rear and Street jam soft's up front. This setting so far is the truth! I'm really loving this thing right now.

weird. i like my shells to look as low as possible. lol. hpi's are cheap and look decent. allows me to run 9-12mm offsets so i can get all my steering angle. no complaints here

Only problem is, when you mount hpi shells low enough to look half way decent, front bumper and skideskirts will be literally dragging on the floor.

So what's my gear ratio? Thanks! I just got a low pro stand servo just so I can go up to 100 t spur, but I got a 96t spur yesterday and I don't know how yo do the math involved..

Hey just to make sure I did this right I got 7.1 is my math right? If so is that too high of A FDR? P.E.M.D.A.S. Who remembers that means?

I think I found the key to unlocking the rear traction problem!!

Okay I got an extra set of the front suspension from the DIB. Sort of like a "Type C" conversion without the bells and whistles. I Found no bump steer at all! All setting done with A ruler and RPM camber ruler. Waiting on touring car set up station in the mail.

Front camber is set at 8 degrees.
Castor at 6 degrees. Stock stuff with 2mm kick up. Soon to add 3-4 mm till I get some overdose parts in my life.
Front toe is at 0
Camber is at -2


The Rear has 4mm kick down, tried that theory I saw in a thread early and I TRIED IT AND IT WORKS! Added with the 4mm stock castor, so that equals 8 degrees of "kick down".

Rear castor 8* mm
-0 Toe
-3 camber


It's not pretty for now. Waiting on turnbuckles in the mail.

Now I did this to my R31/GPX and would consider this my first "upgrade" to any chassis that did not have function. I also prefer the front suspension arms because of the shock mounting holes and being able to few more options. I like progressive shock rebound and use Oil and spring rate VS the opposite , which seems the norm with most chassis's.

Ive been using a bit of pro-squat too. Stock springs are way too stiff for this chassis. New springs and little bit of tuning makes the chassis come alive.
