Just finished my car last night @ the track and tested with it. Very good set-up out of the box. Thanks Danny for the set-up. A few changes for my track. Changed the tires and side spring from suggested set-up and upper a-arm location. Next week will be the real test, actual competition.
To get the AE shock smooth fill the shock body with the piston and rod in it. Then after getting the air out of the oil, move the shaft and piston to the top of the shock body. Put some oil in the shock cap and put it on the shaft should extend. If it does great!! Now check for your smoothness and NO air. Also I have 2 KSG kits you will need to get AE's .71 stroke shock shaft and long RPM rod ends. Car work great with this set-up.
I think starting with Dannys' set-up would be a good point. The things I changed for my flat track were: Center spring-AE buggy green/ #2 piston w/50wt. oil. Side shock springs: BOTH-GOLD, Upper A-arms between it and the steering block 1-Wolfe black spacer and 1-gold kingpin shim. LR hub against bearing NO shims And RR 4 .010 shims. Seemed to turn well in practice and plenty of forward bite. I'll let you know the final results after this SAT. night.
Dropkick, It's not about the car or the chassis of the week club. It's about seeing a very good product and purchasing it because it will work. And as soon as you get your a$$ to Thunder Road you'll see where my ADX is, in the A-main.
Thanks again to Danny B. and Andy for there set-up help! Awesome kit and set-up out of the box. 2nd week running 19t 2nd A-main. No wins yet but workin' it. Also thanks SURESHOT for the extra power that let me run up front until unfortunate things happened.:dude:
I ran at ON-TRAX a couple of times this past summer and went from a medium TRC# 6300 to a stiff t-plate and a stiffer HPI progressive touring car spring. The car compressed less in the corners and picked up overall speed. So yes the STIFF t-plate will help but also check your center shock travel and change spring also if needed. Let us know how you make out. :thumbsup:
ROadsplat,yeah I meant PEPE, when I ran my KSG on the local flat track I ran the included .063 T-plate.
Thanks for the kind words also, but bad news is we tried to re-order kits and well there are none at this time.
As far as set-up the suggested set-up from SRM is very good. Actually PEPE the thick T-plate I was speaking of was meant for you. But ROADSPLAT, ANYTIME72 also has soft spring steel T-plates that I have run also and work really well.
