Hyper 9e Outdoor Setup (Kortz)

Hyper 9e Setup - Revelation Raceway (Ontario, CA)
This is a rough outdoor track using Citiblock Soft tires.

Front End

 
Front Upper Shock Location
  • Start at the #3 position with gray spring (17mm shocks). For more steering, move location in, for less move out.

Inner Upper Arm Location

  • Upper inner arm location #1 (for less steering use location #2).

Outer Upper Arm Location

  • Outer location #1 (for more steering use location #2)

Ackerman Bar

  • Short Ackerman Bar (for more steering use the medium).

Camber

  • Three Degrees.

Caster

  • Stock caster is 20 degrees total.

Front Sway Bar

  • 2.4mm bar (for more steering use 2.2mm bar).

Front Toe

  • 2 degrees toe-out.

Front Shocks (17mm)

  • Stock piston hole is 1.5mm.
  • 45wt Shock Oil
  • Gray 17mm Spring
  • Set preload so that front arms are level to ground.
 

Rear End

Rear Upper Shock Location
  • #3 position with gray springs (17mm shocks). For more steering, move location out, for less move in.

Lower Shock Location

  • Location #2.

Inner Upper Arm Location

  • Location #1 (for more steering use location #3)

Outer Upper Arm Location

  • Location # 1

Hub Pin Location

  • Location #1 (location 2 will give more steering, but will traction roll).

Camber

  • -3 degree.

Rear Sway Bar

  • 2.8mm bar

Rear Shocks (17mm)

  • New pistons have 1.45 mm holes. Drill two more 1.45mm holes for a total of 8 1.45mm holes
  • 40wt Shock Oil
  • Gray Spring
  • Set preload so that dog bones are level to ground.
 

Rear Toe-In and Anti-Squat

Rear Anti-Squat
  • 2 degree (#2). If rear of buggy is hopping on acceleration, use 1 degree (#1) anti-squat (when using 1 deg., the buggy will have less jumping distance). Use 3 degree (#3) if you need more jumping distance on very smooth tracks (when using 3 deg., the buggy will be very choppy in rough sections and we rarely ever use it).

Rear Toe-In

  • 3 degree (less rear toe-in will allow the buggy to rotate more through the center of the corners).


Differentials
 

Front Differential

  • 5,000 wt - Thicker oil will increase on power steering and thinner will increase off power steering.

Center Differential

  • 7,000 wt - Thicker oil will increase on power steering and decrease off power steering. Thinner will decrease on power steering and increase off power steering.

Rear Differential

  • 2,000 wt - Thicker oil will increase rotation out of the corner and increase straight line stability.


Ride Height and Droop
 

Front End

  • Start with the front dog bones a little up from level and 65 mm of droop (measured from the bottom of the chassis to the table top).

Rear End

  • Start with the rear dog bones level to the table top and 65 mm of droop (measured from the bottom of the chassis to the table top).

Droop

  • Start with 65 mm in the front and 65 mm in the rear measuring from the bottom of the chassis down to the table surface. When track conditions get rough, try limiting the droop so the tires skip across the holes instead of falling in and upsetting the handling.
