Same for stating if your running the 416 or the WE chassiss.

I'm also only running on carpet/rubber tire, but haven't got a killer setup worth sharing, although its very similar to syndromes.
ok ok sorry

i run lipos with 95g of weight ontop of them made from stick wheel weights from cars , there is no other weight on my chassis which is slightly scratched underneath and it is a WE chassis , some times i use 5 cells with no extra weight and them up front on the chassis

hope this is a little more infomation for a set up sheet

Here's mine after last night. Car weighs 1505g and is pretty much perfectly balanced side to side.

Still a few things to work on: Car needs to be a little more reactive going into a corner. Its good through the middle, and a fraction loose coming out of turns. Will try different wheel spacers next time firstly.

Air temp on the sheet is what my car's thermometer was showing as I arrived at the hall. No idea of the actual temp of the hall or track though I'm afraid.

Hope its of some use, if nothing else just to give you an idea of where I'm looking!

Is that on carpet? Indoor doesn't neccessarily mean carpet any more, so I have to ask. Thanks

We had a beautiful indoor asphalt track but the guy was sort of a jerk and no one went there.

Yes, Carpet. Prima Track GT to be precise - the proper racing carpet manufactured in the UK, I believe very similar to the CRC in the States.

I have just ordered a set from walawala on ebay. They are very cheap to try at about $10 a set for non-ceramics. I have used their ceramic diff balls in the past and they have worked as well as expensive ones from Xenon. They've been around for a while which should indicate their products are of reasonable quality.

+1 for that

i drove 4 mins of the ETS with no brakes and 3 wheel drive because i had the steel shafts in my box and hadn't fitted them

OOPS

also but 1D 1D front blocks and a selection of ones for the rear , gives you some tuning options

That sucks. All you need is one jerk to ruin it for the whole club. Seen that happen.

That sounds about right but you want to get the IFS "C" hubs as they will actually last more than just a few laps....
Get a few extra blades for the bones and a hand full or wheel bearings too.. just in case.
