Don't know how your LHS expects to sell anything at those prices...

Depends on rules at your track.
If it is all Tamiya then start with:
M-grips radial at the rear and S-grips at the front.
Red springs at the rear and white hard at the front.
I use 400 oil from Tamiya in the shocks with 3 holes at the rear and 600 at the front.
No toe in at the front but neutral or 0.5 /1 degrees toe out.
I myself don't use the toe in rear hubs but have them at 0 degrees.
Ride hight front at 5 mm and at the rear 6mm.
If you use the gear diff then put some AW grease in there.
It has almost the same effects as a ball diff and with less hassle that it rips the spline's of the diff cups
Try to put all electronics inside the chassis as it lowers the centrall point of gravity and that helps a lot.

cheers Roy
Ps this is my setup at a asphakt track we run here with med to high grip.

Hi,

I see that many people use S grips at the front ! Is S-grip the softest radial tyre from Tamiya.

S-Grip radial - Soft
M-Grip radial- Medium
Stock radial- Hard. Is this right?

thnx

Nope!

S-Grip is Super Grip
M-Grip is Medium Grip
Kit tires is the LEAST grip.

Hope its helps...

If you race carpet, M grips have more traction than S grips, but traction rolling can be a problem. On pavement, it depends on track temp; M grips are better at lower temps.

i would always use M grips over S grips , i have never got a set of S grips to work as of yet , all thought they do last for ever and the M grips are pooped after one good days racing outdoors

for grip roll indoors add superglue to the outer side of the 4 tyres this sorts it

Need some help with a TAO3 ball diff install. I assembled the diff, reassembled the car and when i throttle up it pushes the dog bones out disengaging from the front axles. I tried removing the rubber O rings because i thought there was a clearance issue and it didn't help.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions
