Seems that everyone else gets a thread, why not the Mavericks? There wont be a ton of people, but hopefully a few of us can start turning heads at the track.
Discuss setups, and racing here.

I hope it doesnt rain saturday, I want to get the MOC in victory lane! :)

Yes this is a good idea. I hope it dosent rain on sunday I have some 6's and 7's that I need to use to get the 03' car ready for this mod season. Here is my latest carpet setup. If you want to see pictures of it go to the web site and it's under 03' racers rides or somthing. I think mine is the only one up there so far but if not I'm Dave.

Setup for carpet Oval in Stockton:
Front Springs: Left-Wolfe std Green. Right-Wolfe std Red
Lube: 50,000 wt mugen diff oil.
Castor: L-1* R-1*
IRS Block position: Left side-Longest position in the top hole. Right side-Short position top hole
Arm Angle: Left side-Keep the upper arm level with the lower arm. Right side- shim the outside of the arm with 2 wolfe 1/8" brass shims.
Wheelbase: Left side-Second hole from the top on the chassis and forward hole on the plate Right side-Second hole from the top on the chassis and back hole on the plate
Width: Left side-Wide position on the plate. Right side-Middle position on the plate
Center Shock Location: I used an IRS chassis brace standoff and had a ballcup on the shock. It was in the third hole from the front.
Center Shock: ASC shock, 50wt trinity oil, #2 piston, OLD Gold RC10 front spring, .71 MIP gold shaft, 1-2 mm droop adjusted with ball cups
Side Shocks: Left-Gold Spring, 30 wt oil .39" piston size RPM med ball cup on retainer side. Right- Blue spring, 30wt oil, .36" piston, RPM med ball cup on retainer side.
Side Shock Location: Middle hole on brace
Pod: STD asc pod not offset.
Battery Location: All the way back!!!!!!
Electronics Location: All the way forward on the battery tray. Look at the picture on the MOC 03' driver car picture, it will show you how crazy it is.
Antenna Position: On the battery tray. This one is what makes the whole car work right. Because the antenna builds an electromagnetic field. When the car is turned on the field that is generated helps add weight to the LF to get the car to turn HARD!!!!!!
Tires: RF: Black LF: Grey RR: Grey LR: White. All Jaco and cut to 2.22.
Body: Protoform MC 02 HD
Motor: Arcor 19t, 41 108
Track: Stockton carpet oval about 250-260' flat small bumps on the front straight building #1.

Car was very fast. This is the setup that I finished the day with. I had a first place car but a motor that had the endbell on backwards prevented me from taking the win. OH well.

You will love the car Todd. I have fallen in love with the frontend. It is by fer one of the most tuneable chassis out there, due to the front plate setup. I would just reccomend to anyone that if you plan on using the front plate to tune the car with, which you should, then you would want to run the widest body avalible, that happens to be the 02 HD MC from protoform. I didn't have any clearence issues when moving my front plate around but I could see that to be a problem if your using a Intrepid or maby even a Grand Prix.

Just wanted to say one thing about the maverick chasis. The front end adjustability is the biggest advancement in oval racin' in the last 10yrs. Bravo Bravo! Well done

Cody: Thanks for starting a thread! There are getting to be more and more of the Maverick Oval Chassis out there, we are quietly making our presence known! You're really enjoying the 4 cell stock racing! What type of track do you run on? You've been up in the top 3 lately, haven't you? Maybe you could share one of your MOC set-ups?

There are pics of Dave's car on the site: MOC-3 Racer's Rides-Dave Very clean and well built!

Pictures of Kevin's car will be up next week. I've heard he's done them up in all red and black, should be sweet looking!

I've also put Phillip Owen's asphalt set-up on the site: '03 Maverick Oval Chassis set-ups He won the 19 turn class at Hobbyworld his first time out with the new car!

Todd: I know you'll be running towards the front with the new chassis, you've got the original version dialed in really well.

Metrodog: Thank you!

Jake

I like the 4 cell stuff now. Cheap and fun! I run on a flat asphalt track, about a 165 foot center line. Heres the 4 cell setup:

Body: Protofrom Monte Carlo HD with home made wing
Tires: Jaco Purples All the way around
Front end: Associated Long Kingpins, Wolfe axles, Wolfe Non progressive white springs on both sides, 1º negative camber on right side, 1º positive camber on the left. 0º toe in. Raceways MFG adjustable castor blocks.
Side Shocks: VCS shocks with 40 wt oil, blue left spring and silver right spring.
Center Shock: AE TC# threaded shock with 35 wt. oil and a red truck spring thats been cut to size.

Standard pod with offset hub on the right side, stock hub on the left side, 3/16 inch spacer. Kimbrough rear ride adjusters.

Battery position is all the way back and all the way to the left, and the reciever sits on the reciever pack mount since i dont use the RX Pack.

Cody: Thanks for posting your set-up. Short, flat, asphalt oval racing, just what I like! Most of the tracks we run on around here are considered medium to large size ... That's fun too, but I do enjoy the smaller, high lap count, bullring style racing!

How did your racing go this weekend?

Didn't you do up your car with orange anodizing? Can you send me a few pictures for the website?

I had to work this morning, so I couldnt make it to the track in time :(
I anodized a few of the parts, but i bought some new stuff like shocks, pod pieces, etc. so I need to get those done. Im trying to get a hold of the anodizing shop so I can get it finished. Right now the car just has blue hubs, shock adjusters, center shock, motor mount, etc. but when I get all of my orange stuff done it should be pretty trick.


My XXXNT is comepletely red, and it really turns heads, maybe the orange will look even better?

Todd,

Matt said the new chassis looked real good this weekend. 2nd place in 19T? Not bad for 1st time out of box.

Can't wait to get back out this weekend and bang some paint! Can't sit around too long, it looks as though Matt & Mike have their cars really dialed in.

Excellent pan car

Hello All,
Just my 2 cents, I bought the Maverick early this winter, and it was fast right out of the box. Excellent help from the Jake, JPH really stand's behind thier products.
The graphite is flawless and the fit and finish is second to none....
I'm putting in my order for the O3. tomorrow...
Thanks

Tom you will very impressed with the new 03 chassis. Just as Koz said this new chassis turns better than anything that I have ever driven. If you run flat aspault tracks then check out Koz setup that will be on the website this week. His car was on "stilts" today.
