Here is my setup I ran in Tampa for the last state race, This will be my starting point for the state race in a couple of weeks at superior. I run a mazda 6 speed and 4.5 motor, very agressive steering, but a very fast setup. I could not save the pdf file, so I took some pics of the setup sheet for you to look at.

Just wanted to post some additional information on the Integy TC5 parts.

So I ordered a few things to see how they looked, and I am happy to say that they are really nice. I ordered the aluminum 4* c-hubs the 0* rear hubs.

My quick review:

Anodizing looks nice...etched 4* and integy logo; no left/right designation on them

Machining looks nice and seems to very pretty accurate. The bearing slots in the rear hubs are pretty tight, absolutely no play and the axle fits well and does not appear to be miss aligned in any way. The hubs seem to be 0*, but I will be putting them on the car so that I can tell for sure.

Overall I am impressed, and for the price they are hard to beat.

Weights:
plastic 4* c-hub = 3 grams
Integy 4* c-hub = 4 grams

plastic 0* rear hubs = 3 grams
Integy 0*? rear hubs = 4 grams


No, I do not work for Integy, but these seem to be pretty nice for the money.

Thanks for the review, would like to know if the rear hubs are 0* or 1* if you can tell. I have my car dialed with 6* c-blocks and only wish that they'd made those too...

Rear hubs are 0* after fitting them on the car.
