Ok. this is the chart I was using:they don't provide a frequency rating in the chart, but I'm running TKR6035 on the front and TKR6037 on the rear right now:
I was planning to spend a lot of time at the track this week but unfortunately I got hit with a low grade fever a couple days ago... I broke the fever this morning, and plan to get tested this afternoon, but chances are I'll need to quarantine for 10 days before I can get back out to the track
TEKNO said:Our new spring design improves traction by reducing chassis oscillation on rough track surfaces and large jump landings. Overall stability of the vehicle is improved, providing better forward grip, increased corner speed and quicker lap times.
Happy to report that with the cushions placed inside the kit included boots they no longer get bunched up and the cushions worked much better than before, also tried Chris Allison's most recent setup and I've completely shattered a bunch of my personal records on the current layout:
The setup is way more aggressive and has pushed me a little outside my comfort zone, my consistency isn't there, but the speed is definitely making up the difference making it worth the change. I plan to spend some time at the track this next week to try and see if I can settle it down a pinch without sacrificing too much speed:
- Fast Lap went from 34.005 to 33.128
- Hot Qual went from 9/5:16 to 9/5:09
- Hot Main went from 14/8:24 to 14/8:19

Main deviation from Chris's setup is that I am still using the stock aluminum towers, though I've drilled the towers to get the long link camber, I've recently learned that the Thornhill rear towers are 3mm shorter than the stock towers which adds 3mm of droop which I had to compensate for. I might go ahead and buy the rear -3mm carbon towers just because there are probably some other factors in the geometry that are going to make a difference. I also went up to 350/500 on the shock oils to help settle the car as well.
Also saw another racer strip a TEKNO servo arm at the track yesterday, he was using the locked bell cranks and I mentioned that I haven't stripped any servo arms since going back to the servo saver. I know I'm sacrificing a little in steering response but seems less risky to use the servo saver
Well done Bill! Good for you to be able to give the pros a run for their money. ?I was in the market for a new servo and as luck would have it, Jared Tebo decided to travel down to Thornhill for the first series race of the season this past weekend so I bought one of his CT1 servos which worked great in my buggy!

Although it was just a "Series" race, technically a club race, somehow it turned into a large regional event with 276 entries!
I raced in the Expert eBuggy Class with a total of 55 entries which spanned all the way down to an E-Main:
I was fortunate to get a good run in the first round (only 2 quals) which was good enough to get a spot in the B Main (pretty much all pro level drivers stacked in the A Main) and I would finish 9th which made me very happy to be right on the heels with some of the pros that were trickled down into the B Main!
Really loving this buggy!
Well done Bill! Good for you to be able to give the pros a run for their money. ?
