Try Keven Heberts posted a few pages back... I think on p273. I just put it on mine and ran for the first time and it was very nice. Track was a little slick and tires hadn't been run in forever and it was still good.

The timing in the speedo will have alot to do with gearing.......so check temps often as you change settings on your speedo.
hey josh would you gear the duo and lrp the same in 13.5. i never ran an lrp before but thats all i have for 13.5. everyone at my track runs the duo so i could compare thanx again

I have gone back and forth with the losi 57's and associated #3's and I think I like the #3's better.

No prob AssocRacer........as long as you have fun does it really matter where you finish?

Nick Stampfel finished 5th in 13.5 rubber.

Bob Stellflue finished 3rd in 13.5 foam

Keven Hebert finished 2nd in 10.5 rubber and I finished 3rd in 10.5 rubber.
LeMieux was in a league of his own in that class.....

Keven also finished 2nd in mod foam.

As far as the rubber setups............I ran the setup I have posted here a few times........I did switch to a spool for sat and sun because I felt it was a little easier to race with.
Keven tried everything on his rubber car........I don't know exactly what he ended up with.
When you switched to spool did you make any other changes?? The carpet we run on has tons of bite on it (they actually spray the track) and it seems the set up you posted is for meduim bite carpet. Any suggestions on any changes would really help out, thanks...

Glad you liked it PADAILEY, we really like the car with that setup. And thanks to Keven for sharing.

While practicing for the Novak I could run a 41/100 on the 13.5 LRP and it stayed in the 150's for temp. compared to Josh who had 40/100 on his 13.5, but I didn't have the timing advanced much more than it comes stock from LRP.
