Asked Brent myself about Trcr traction and how it compared to what he runs on .

Said it was about the same or very similar....

Asked others that travel to Chico,Surf city, Ocrc...


They claim Trcr has a little more grip.

Seeking a good starting setup for SoCal medium to high bite tracks, mostly stock B5M. Looking to lose a bit of push, and gain more low speed steering. Not interested in having the lightest car out there. Car is already too light in the rear with the pucks, aluminum top shaft, and cut gears, plus shorty pack. May ditch it all and go heavy (all stock plus B5 flat arms, and tower) to gain more stability.

I'd like to try yours actually. Have a setup sheet? Going to OC/RC tomorrow to practice, need to know if I need to buy stuff today to throw on it. Would also like to not grind, chop or hack up the car if possible. Also need a sure fire way to ease up the ball cup binding. Don't kind an emery cloth to polish the balls. Anything short of sanding stuff down to help? Right now I am putting the links on then popping them off to loosen up the links but I know in the long run that's not good.

lol, what? no one runs my setup. Not even the locals.


Here is my setup. I tried a few different things and I liked the fell of this the best. This is the setup I ran last weekend at the Short Course Shootout. The car was great, the driver was not lol. But the car did everything I asked of it. For me it turned on a dime....But My front tires are magical. lol. Meaning, when ever I want more steering, I put them on and any push I had goes away. Sometimes its too much and I go with a front tire that is more forgiving. Locally, tires are a big deal. And I dont mean the brand specifically, I mean how they are broken in and such. New tires always seem to suck. I tried the 1.4s in the front like cav, but I didnt like it. I tried lower weight oils and I didnt like it. I find my car is very easy to drive, but if I put the wrong tires on, it becomes a handful in a second. You can copy a setup, but kinda hard to copy peoples tires. Anyway, laugh away at my setup, lol. IDK I like it.

Like you I have really struggled with the cups. I tried lots of things. Popping them on and off, reaming the cup, polishing/standing the balls and just trying to let them break in.


Popping them on and off is definitely a decent part of the equation, but it only seems to get me so far. Sanding the studs does help, but I used 800 grit and it can take a little while. The ball cup reamers are nice, but there is not one that is a perfect size that I have found. IMO, that is probably the best and easiest solution. I got most of mine "close" with sanding and pop on/off. Then a few week of racing, finished breaking them in. If your racing outdoors or on dusty surfaces, use a q-tip and clean them out periodically.


If you want to sand some, just chuck up the stud in a dremel. Turn it to a medium setting. I cut a strip of 800 grit about 3 inches long. Then lopped it over the stud and sanded each stud for 1-2 minutes. The pop on/off the cup several times and that makes it pretty good.

Maybe if I tell you what mine is doing that would help. At LRH right now there is a straight, not too long, but can get on the throttle if Need be. My problem is at the end where there is a not quite sweeper turn, but it is not a 180 degree either, just have to hit it right to clear the small doubles before setting up for a 180, booted, series of 180s. My car does not like the turn at all. It is floating almost into the back wall, causing me to to have to overshoot the double cause I have to slow down to keep the floating under control, which in turn causes me to have to get on the breaks hard before the 180 to setup for the turn before the booter if that makes any sense?

Go with hartsons set up. Its the safest. Run well broken in dirt webs all road and sauce with wd40 for 10min before runs. Of 3x1.4 flat in front shocks. Then just drive it like you stole it, have fun with the triples lol especially the center. Haha
