48P or 64P for carpet setup? That is the question.

Haven't had many issues with 64P in my TC & WGT but lots of people suggested I switch to 48P as it's much more reliable. 64P makes more sense to me for indoor on-road, more efficient. I need new pinions and spurs and can't decide if I should make the switch, such a dilema
With 64P you can make finer adjustments of your gearing/rollout.

48P is more durable for outdoor racing on gritty on-road tracks and all forms of off-road. But, 48P can be also useful to on-road rookies that are not experienced in setting their gear mesh.

I run 64P on my WGT cars for carpet/asphalt. Have not used 48P since my very first RTR touring car.

That's was what I was thinking. Will stick with 64P.

Thanks Bill

I emailed John a couple days ago about carpet and haven't heard back yet. I would imagine he gets loads of emails everyday and it's hard to keep up.

I am just coming back into the hobby and a CRC 1/10 pan is my first purchase. Be nice to get a short list on what most recommend for powering it.

Good avatar!

Get the "LE" version for 1S racing...The older "Pro" version is 2S oriented and costs more. Both versions can be run on either carpet or asphalt with very minor changes.

1) Start with a Tekin RS ESC...For ramped and unramped.
2) There are a few good 13.5/10.5 motors for different setups out there...a good answer also depends on what you intend to run...ramped or unramped?
3) I definitely like my CRC 5600 1S 65C packs. I keep my pack count down so I can try new packs as they hit the market. Maximum of two packs per car works fine (recharging at track).
4) Instead of a voltage booster, use a 220 mah receiver pack to save .05-.1V on your 1S pack at the end of the run when voltage is most important.

Since you're a helpful lot here I will pose another question.

Team Orion Avionics LiFe Rx 600mAh 6.6V 30C

Good choice for an Rx pack for my Spektrum S6070 which has a stall current rating of 3A @ 6V?. I would prefer to use Orion cells as I've had nothing but awesome experience with them.

GTB2 with a BEC of 3A @ 6V

BTW I figured out my pod tweak issue, I'm an idiot Motor wires were pushing down on the motor. Was a good excuse to finally do a good electronics install on my Gen X 10 LE.

Thanks in advance for the advice.

It looks like there are two 1/12 scale king pin sets:

1250 - 1/12th Kingpin Set
3250 - CRC 1/12 King pin set polished

Which one do I get?

hey guys

i run my LE out doors on asphalt and i am wearing the pod plate out
mainly the left side, yet the track has mostly left corners.
it squats a lot under acceleration (running 2s,10.5 on boost/turbo)
should i try a heavier spring or could i just limit the down travel ?
its standard at the moment red centre and side springs

ozzy

what sort of ride height are you running on the rear?
the pod should stay level as it is a solid axle.

how much droop are you running? whats your ride height? is the car balanced? anything tweaked?

when i was running in the pro10 class i had the same issue until i found out i had a crack on my rear pod (and some other tweaks here and there )
