That is alot to spend to make it carpet ready.
If you want an asphalt and carpet car th T3 should be a safe bet. The tamiya is designed purely for aspahlt rubber but is effective on other surfaces. Its just the lack of durability that turns me away from Tamiya kits, especially when the top kits cost so much.

For the most part I have been reading the car is not the best for carpet. It was the thin chassis that has been the big factor that keeps me away.
The Losi has done very well for me this year for carpet rubber. I have found a very sweet spot for the best lap times. Finding another car that can come close to the performance of the losi will be very difficult.

I have been pleasantly surprised by the performance of my losi and I imagine it would take quite a bit to make me even consider another chassis at the moment. It has been fast everywhere I take it. Of particular note was last racemeet. I took my car out for a clubbie with my brother in 17.5 with the new weight limit of 1425g. I had good feel and speed straight away and did one or two minor tweaks for a fast car. My brothers Cyclone however struggled to work with the new weight limit and he spent the entire day trying to get soemwhere near my speed even with the advantage of a faster ESC for that class. At the end of the day I was only slightly slower than the 10.5 guys and miles faster than any of the other 17.5 guys. I believe I would have Q'd 2nd or 3rd in the 10.5 A!

I have a couple of dumb questions for the resident JRXS-R experts

First, when building a slipper spool do you build it just like the diff including the copper washer on the one side and the thrust bearing as well, using the slipper spool pulley?

Second, when one sees a setup with "low roll center + 0.30" what does one use to shim the hinge pin blocks to 0.30? Is there a specific Losi part to do the shimming?

Thanks in advance from JRXS-R Noob!

Cheers,
Mike

Yes build the spool as you described.

And yes "Low roll center + 0.30" is using the low roll center blocked shimmed up .30". You can use Losi #4 washers which are .30" think. I think the part number is LOSA6215 but you should confirm.

LOSA6215 is a correct number.

I've heard the same about the T3. Apparently it's a pain on carpet.

I still think the Losi is the best for all conditions. There maybe a car that shines one one surface or another but the Losi just is there everywhere I go.

I got my type-R on end of 2008 and had a roller coasting results in early stage

after unlocked few secrets during 2009 season I'm more than confident with my car for a 2010 season both Carpet and the Blacktop

after 10 long years of absent in this hobby I'm truly enjoying racing back with this great machine.

if any one want to join the TC race I strongly recommend a type-R

Had great time with you guys this year on this forum, lets keep this forum on the first page all the time in 2010!

see you all in the A main

happy new year.

happy new year.
im about ready to get into another type-r again.this will be my 4th car and i loved every one of them.
the fellow im getting it from had said that greg sharpe has a set-up on here somewhere for rubber tire on carpet.would like to see if i can find that set-up somewhere.im looking forward to running this chassi again.although with the new weight limit.im just not sure where to go with set-up.cause i have never used lipo in the car.i was basically using haynes rubber tire for carpet on the 2 most recent cars that i have had,although i was using nimh with the car.so if you guys have any input on any updates that would be great.

thx,
matt
