I have just recently bought myself a 5.1 and I m seeking some advice on setting my little car up given the fact that the 1/12 class in Greece is currently non-existent. In order for you to help me out I have to give you as many facts as possible. So, our first race will take place on this ( http://www.elmegallery.gr/displayima...album=35&pos=4
) track and we currently dont know which layout we will use. Certainly we will have to use one of the two straights which are approx 65-85 feet long, depending on which one we run. A bit bumpy when compared to the tracks you run in the UK and the US.
Traction should be considered low, as on the same day, a 1/10 touring class race will take place too. Otherwise, I would consider it extremely low as the track is not treated with any traction stuff at all.
Mod motors are allowed and my pit bag carries a 4.5, a 5.5 and a 7.5 with 1s lipo and an ESC choice between SXX TC and SXX stock.
Tyre choices are limited to CRC normal and pro-cuts.
Given these facts what equipment would you run on this track? What roll-out would you consider as a good starting point? What tyres?
Any help on this would be very much appreciated.
By the way, keep in mind that given the amateur level of all of us, anyone who manages to have a consistent car, even if it is a bit slower than the others, will definately win this race by miles.
