Hi all

What setup would you start with when running rubber on tight medium grip asphalt. This will be my cars first proper run so I'd like to get a good base setup. I have a spool fitted but there is quite a few diffeent setups around. Is there a latest magic setup?

Thanks

look for the Losi Type R set up sheets there. Plenty of asphalt set ups and some from UK drivers as well.

Look for the ones that say tight asphalt med grip and give it a shot.

Here you can find all shops that sells Mon-tech's products, but they are all in Italy....

You can drop them an e-mail asking if they can ship overseas. a.montech@libero.it
Update they have stock i'm going to see what their prices are and see how many i can afford. How much interest in these is there?

I'm not sure how well the alloy diff hub will work. Wouldn't the difference in driveshaft friction between the alloy side with the blade and the other side with just the pin cause the car to handle "funny?"

I thought you'd put the other blade on the other side, but you do have a point, i'd be willing to try it though

Enough for me . I'll see about pricing and post estimated pricing and give it a go. I'll keep you all posted.
