Depends on the size of your track. I was running about 4.37 on our 140x60 asphalt track with the Tekin RS. I haven't tried to find the right gearing on carpet yet. I may play around with it tomorrow and let you know what I come up with.

Measure your ride height. Let's say it's 5mm. Lift the chassis until the tires are just barely touching and measure your ride height at this point. The difference should be 2mm. It is known as uptravel, or the distance the chassis travels before the tires would come off the ground.

+1 mine hasn't rubbed either. On a side note I was able to replace the middle weight with the long side weight. Placed it under the belt and moved all my extra weight from the electronics side to the battery side and balanced very nicely to 1440. Car feels dialed now!

LF...you have a pm

The Photons put down some good runs in Dallas this weekend at the Fall Classic. Myself and Dustin Layne finished 2nd and 3rd in 17.5 Rubber, and 4th and ? in 13.5 Rubber.

Congrats to Chris Adams for the 17.5 win, and to Mike Dumas for the 13.5 win.
