Mike Dumas - Cleveland 2005 - TQ and 1st Place Modified
We've been getting a lot of e-mails and phone calls for pictures and the set-ups off of Mike's and Jake's cars from Cleveland. So here they are:
Protoform Speed12 Body cut at body line, mounted slightly back
JACO Double Pink Wrap front tires trued to 1.67", super glued inside and out
Two .033 aluminum caster shims under the front of each arm
.0080 camber shims
lowered front steering spindles = .033 lower
.020 front springs
SpeedMerchant part # 5015 Aluminum Front Braces
JR Z3650 Digital Race Servo
SpeedMerchant #5031 Aluminum Straight Servo Mounts
Novak GTX ESC
Novak Super Flex 16 gauge wire for motor
JR Synth Micro Rec.
Team Br00d IB3800 4-cell pack
35 Weight silicone shock oil
Associated Red VCS spring
1 degree of pod droop
Front of VCS shock raised by .090 = more on-power steering
White tweak springs with no pre-load = hovering 1mm above link end, static
20,000 Silicone fluid in damper tubes
Team Br00d V2 10-Double Mike Dumas Signature Series motor
29/100 gearing 64 pitch
JACO Double Pink Wrap rear tires trued to 1.77"
That's it....no magic, just a pretty stock Rev.4 and some great driving.
Jake's car was prepared almost identically, except he favored an Asc. Blue VCS spring and 10,000 weight silicone in his damper tubes.
Jake also runs for KO, so he has a KO digital servo, and a KO receiver installed, as well as Team Checkpoint motors and batteries.
