I drove mine for the first time last night and its very neutral. I'm not pushing the envelope of speed and handling just yet with the 13.5, but it looks good and is very predictable. I'd say I'm a second or more off pace with the experienced drivers at our track, no big deal as I'm in learning mode. It came with a setup on the car which needs to be documented as the shop owner who also drives a Type-R wants to compare with his setup. We'll see if its ready to race this weekend (if I am actually). I'll post the setup it has on it for giggles once I have it.

Hoping someone could help me out with the final drive ratios for the Type R, looking to go to the optional 41t pulleys to lower the ratio. I am trying to lower for the use for a VTA, and cant get my hands on the JRXS spur adapter. I am also running the 17.5 4 cell spec. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.

The internal drive ratios are

42/23= approx. 1.83 Stock
41/23= approx. 1.78 With 41 pulleys front/back

You will probably still have a hard time gearing a 17.5.

As for finding a spur adapter, I would try 360. www.360rcspeedway.com.

Decresing rear toe will give you less steering off power and more on power. From what you have said I would try going the other way and add toe in at the rear.

any comments on how to get more off power steering.even using the 2 degree rear block it still pushed pretty bad.i have the shocks all the way down in the front.before i put the 1 degree block in the rear i tride them in the middle hole.but made the car loose in the middle of the turn...
i got one week left to try for they are shutting down for the season..and well there is somebody there who needs to be tought a lesson.....lol

No point talking setup unless you are using the right tyres and traction compound. Nothing can make a care on the wrong tyres competative.

im either going to buy the sorex 24 or 28.im hearing the 28 tire is the better choice.
traction compound im using trinity zip free...i think thats what its called...they only use a couple different traction compounds there and one was jack the gripper and that zip free.

again thx for the help.

Next time you race ask some of the fastest guy's at the track what tyres and compounds they are using. At least 90% of your setup is the right tyres. Also you would be surprised how much difference the body can make to your cars balance.

If you are running the stock caster blocks (4*) try (6*). I rarely run more than 2* total toe in. That would be a 1* block in the rear.

Good Luck,
Casey

I agree with this setting but using the 15lbs on the rear maybe helpful
