- Schumacher Cougar KF - Rich Simps - Robin Hood Raceway - June 2014 -
Grip is high.
The track is quite technical with some medium size jumps, bomb holes and a large banked corner.
The conditions were dry.
Set up wise most people are running 4 deg toe in one way or another. if you have a stock kit just put a 0.5mm thick washer between the rear block and gearbox. Most of the team guys are adding weights down the outside edge of the chassis between the end of the Lipo, or running brass plate under the shorty. They look to have around 40g at least on there.
My set up for Astro so far is
This was my final setup on the last run last night, the biggest improvement was going up from 300 to 350 core oil in the rear shocks, this made the rear planted on the bumps and you could really bang the power on.
I also added another 1mm to the front link to gain a bit more exit steering (included on the set-up). The only things I wish to try now is a ball diff, weights and 450 front oil.
