Both the hudy and integy both make good ones.

As far as balancing goes, with 6 cells my car is pretty dead on. With a Lrp tc spec speedo and 2 fans on the motor. Also the transponder is in front of the battery.

Default Tc5 the best

First post on this.Probably the best car I've ever owned right out of the box.Now to fine tune.Anybody have any tips on getting"no rebound" on the shocks? Also,when speaking of "no rebound"does that mean No shaft rebound or Just no rebound foams? Petty sure I know the answer just wanting to be sure.Thanks to AE and the development team for sure.The box setup is awesome. Just want to learn the car now.Can't wait for carpet season or a race to come up.

I finally got to run modified foam on carpet with the production car this past weekend. I was very impressed with the results. Every change can be felt and seen in the laptimes. Here is what I have came up with.

Front-

60 wt oil,#3 piston, purple spring
#2 hole in tower,A arm hole
6* castor blocks
#3 hole for camber link
1,A for steering link
med low diff
5mm droop


Rear-

40 wt oil,#2 piston, red spring
#3 hole on tower, B hole in arm
1/2* hubs, 2* inboard toe
A, 3 camber link-- 3mm shims on black ballstud
med low diff
4mm droop

Dna body, Jaco dbl pink tires w/ paragon full rear and 1/2 of the front tires.

Yes you are correct, when it is said no rebound, that means no foam.
If you don't use foam you will get pretty much no shaft rebound unless you have too much oil in the shocks.

Hey Walter,

I haven't seen you since the Reedy Race in 04'. Hope all is well. I might have to try your set-up.

Finally got the electronics mounted and got to run a little, mind you it was just in front of the house to dial in the radio. I had forgotien how fast touring cars are! Has anyody seen any of the asphalt type parts in stck yet?( spool, top deck etc) It also got me thinking who will be the first to market with hop ups. I know it does not really need anything, just want to be different i guess. My YZ450F works way better than i could ever take advantage of but that does not mean i would not love to have Grant Langstons factory bike!

What size pinion would you suggest for C027 motor for a track that the longest straight away of roughly 60 feet. The rest of the track is all turns with one other short straight. I've tried a 27 tooth pinion and it feels pretty good, but someone else told me they were running a 17 tooth. Seems kind of small to me.

Do you think I should try a 25 tooth?

I found a place that answered my question. If anyone is interested here's the link to it:

http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_3255405/tm.htm

According to what I came up with there, I should use a 22 tooth pinion.

Thanks for your reply.
