yea, i think it is kinda thick. ill be drilling some small hole pistons with lighter oil to get a bit of a softer feel with more pack. not saying i even know what im talking about but that is what i will try next.

All 5 tracks I run at r med-lg tracks with med jumps (10' distance jumps at the most just a few feet off the ground ) little bumpy /loomy
I havent run outside yet so i have absolutely no idea, I would be lying if i told you anything about outdoor yet. I would look at some of the Xray database and get a idea from their. Good luck!

I am going to the Nationals then the Reedy, I am going to start here ( http://forum.teamxray.com/xform/inde...D=126&setup=t4 ) as a baseline for the nats and go from their, since i haven't tested on asphalt much i am just going to go with the most successful high bite carpet set up that i have so far. By the Reedy race i assume that it will change some.
Thanks

Hi Skiddens, it kinda depends on the rotor and situation but i suppose overall i would classify them as more of a RPM motor.

No problem!

Hi Max. definitely a stiffer front wheel will have more steering, but especially initial steering. a soft wheel will be smoother on center and less prone to traction rolling, and will be easier to drive. I like a 12th scale wheel to be not too stiff but not to soft either.
As for rear wheels i really don't know, all the tire testing that i have done has all been on wheels that are on the stiff side.

see ya!

Paul,
What is your tire warming and tire saucing technique together when running TC on asphalt?

Hey Paul,

How much timing do you run on your 1/12th motor?

Is it true that more timing a motor has less torque is produced?

Cheers

Kev

It has been a while but i will start with new tires by cleaning them with motor spray then a application of LG1 on the first run only. from their i will simply use a bit of LG2 rubbed in and let air dry every run after that, this is by far the most consistent for me. if you want to introduce warmers you can and could have better results but then the the consistency goes way down if you do not do it perfect every time.

Thanks

I normally run 30deg. In the old days maybe less timing meant more torque but i definitely do not think so anymore. now days with the voltage recovery of the battery and the static timing effecting the introduction of the speedo timing i feel like for me more timing is simply more power. 35deg being about max though before the power could taper do to inefficiency.


Thanks

Thanks Paul for the response.

When using the warmers, how hot would you set them for? Would it vary on the temperature outside or track temp?

No problem. I rarely get to race asphalt where Warner's are used so I'm prolly not quite the expert but the temp and time would very depending on amost every variable. Such as, how much additive is applied, how thick the additive is, outside temp, how long it takes to get threw tech, are you using them to simply cook the additive into the tire? or to have the tire warm itself at the line? etc, etc, etc.
The perfect method with Warmers will normally be best but the wrong method could be way bad. I feel like by far the most consistent way is simply to rub it in and let it dry, this way you can focus simply on how much is best for the period you are letting it sit. very, very little Additive for shorter time, a bit more for longer time. At one worlds I had a good method with Warmers and only missed TQ by a few tenths of a second, the next round I switched the method slightly and went a lap down, lol. In closing You do not want the tire greasy as in my story they ended up that way.

Hope this helps

Hi. Thanks, it was fun down their!. I have bent back aluminum pieces in a pinch before at races but it really depends where it is bent and how bad. when i have done it i have find a machinists stone to lay the piece on and tap it back flat with a ball hammer. but getting new pieces is likely necessary.


see ya

Hi Paul.

Can you give me a guesstimate of what FDR and motor you would run a Thunder Power 4.5 at on this track;

[YOUTUBE]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-KoEHr_Wqjo[/YOUTUBE]

Believe the straight is around 75m

Thanks

Thanks Paul for the help. I was always under the assumption that people needed to use tire warmers when running on asphalt, but you cleared that up for me.

Thanks
