Let's see what happens with the new track. In Thailand they can finish things very fast if everything is there. But I really hope the TITC will be there as it will be more challenging track then RC Addict ("highway")!
You should be able to make the 27 laps, your car was fast enough, little more consistant and not too many backmarkers, haha! Good luck saterday and let me know how things went!
You need to give me more info about set-up. If you need more steering, try 1C/1C in front and X/1E is oke, but you can try even less rear toe-in like 1D.
Downstop number 6 front 5 rear must work fine. If you drive less downstop more droop example 5 and 4, the car can roll more, easier to drive but less cornerspeed.
With 17.5T I suggest to go one step harder spring for better cornerspeed.
This is the opposite nnick suggest but it's maybe personal preference.
This is a link from the orion website about all different armatures:
Here you find what armatures does what.
In general I use the standard armature (12.5) with 5mm inside.
This gives best power and feeling.
The motors runs little hotter then speedpassion as the gap between armature and motorcan is smaller.
For RC Addict track ( this years TITC ) I use a 4.5T with 12.5mm/5mm rotor with 3 mm timing. Gearing is 7.1 Power program 5 for "old" version 1 Tamiya Volac. Motor runs 85 degree.
Stock class 11.5T, I use same armature, 4mm timing gearing 4.8 with LRP stockspec, boost/timing 8, motor runs not more then 95 degree.
One suggestion is: when the motor runs hot, go lower gear and go up with timing on speedcontroller.
+ point of the version2 is that it is smoother to drive and even with 3.5T motor, then motor either speedo will not overheat!
TITC is one of the coolest races and I think 2011 have a lot of World class drivers.
Good point Govert, this helps the temp go down!
Nice you set-up the RCAmerica thread, good one!
I think 90% sure I will go to Snowbirds now.
This is only protection but it works better without the plastic/paper
This problem we noticed at the last LRP masters race that new tyres didn't work as good as old ones. Actually many drivers run-in their tyres before qualification started. For LRP additive I suggest to use 30min rear and 10 min front and at all times keep the tyres wet, apply more additive when it dry up.
I quess the double steering bridge has proven te be faster as it has better ackermann position which has a lot to do with the handling of the car.
