Paul, so happy I got to finally meet you. Thank you for taking time to help fellow racers at the birds. I was curious if you could inform me what is the motive behind drag brake with mod touring. Do you run any? How much? And how much push brake do you use? Thank You Chad

Do you have some shims between servo and servo mounts, or between links and saver or between servo and servosaver?

I'll try this setting on the weekend.

What about front end settings in general, are you running 3mm longer upper link or something else? Caster?
A setup sheet from the race would be nice

Hey Schreff.

First off Ficco has no chance in the cheese puff comp lol. I believe the fist in in one of two places, either back on Ehrlich's mantle or in Sweden somewhere, i get the feeling we will know more soon.

Yea I missed that. i suppose that Alex's winning set up from the 2012 birds would be good then, Maybe try that.

Hi Chad. No problem!
In Mod TC i always use drag brake. I dont like to use push brake very much so i will use more drag brake than most. I just find it easier to be consistent that way. so if you feel that you are good at using push brake their is less reason to use drag brake. It seems like whenever i run really fast i use very little to no push brake, but the car and layout has to be perfect for me to use none. 15% drag brake is where i would start out with just about any speedo.

Thanks!

Hi. I prefer US style board tracks but only BC that is just what i am used to. Boards allow me to drive more like "connect the dots" to not crash. on euro style tracks i feel like you need to have more fluid lines and it is always a bit hard for me to adjust.

The servo is mounted behind the posts with the ball studs coming out the front of the servo saver. I ended up with 1mm also shimming the ball studs forward more on the servo saver.
Yes i used 3mm's of shimm's to make the upper arm longer (less steering/easier to drive). caster was in the middle.

I will do a set up sheet now.

Thanks!

for the record, 11 cheese puffs is all i could fit. paul matched my 11 with room to spare. i am hereby withdrawing from the cheese puff rematch, due to stretched mouth corners, and high cholesterol.

I had no idea the fist was high in cholesterol!

Always learning something in here... thanks Paul!

Is this servo placement for weight distribution?

Honestly, it just kinda ended up that way and it leaves me more room for my receiver on the speedo side.

Did you have one hole in piston or std 2 holes?
Why to raise the side links?
What are RCA green side springs?

And why to have the shock more angled?

I'm having European Championships race next month and I'm struggling with turn-in.
http://forum.teamxray.com/xform/inde...D=72&setup=x12
My setup is that.
The carpet is a bit tricky, not high grip but you really have to drive on power or otherwise the car locks up and the rear end is like with handbrake on.
Very hard to drive on-power/off-power, on every car make on model.
Also, the carpet gets moist from the tire additives and don't get any faster though.

Thanks
Paul,

First off let me tell you THANKS! It's great how you make yourself available to all of us. Now my questions:

Why do you recommend the blue rotor instead of the green? I have been reading in the 1/12 thread and was told green is the way to go.

Second, where can you get a 70 spur? I run an X12 and I have to run a 74. 72 are never in stock from precision and I have not seen a 70. Tried a 72 from CRC but diff would not tighten up, and yes I also bought new diff balls since it uses smaller ones. Thanks

Default 48 pitch vs 64 pitch

My question to is pointed towards understanding the differance between the two and would like to experiment with them both , but I hear 64 pitch is more popular than 48 pitch and if so could you explain your take this subject. ..team trinity p.j

OT, but see if using an unflanged bearing against the pinned side of the hub lets you tighten down on the CRC 72.

Not sure I follow I don't recall flanged bearings in the diff assembly. Maybe I'm missing what you are saying. I would love to be able to run the CRC diff but tore up an axel trying to tighten it up. It would not work on my sons 12R5.1 either. I now have 2 new assemblies with ceramic balls that I cannot use, ugh. PM me with any info. Don't want this taking up space on Pauls thread.
