Believe the straight is around 75m

Thanks

Hi, I would hang a 8.1 overall on it and play with the speedo from their, this size track you will want the car to do around 110kph and that is about all you will want. a TP 4.5 with 25deg timing and 8.1 overall ratio coupled with proper speedo timing settings should achieve it.

Thanks

Yup. Warmers can be best but it can also be way more inconsistent.
Good luck!

More or less painful than sitting on a #11 x-acto blade?

I have a feeling that this incident is directly related to you losing the fist.



Congrats on your win Paul

I'm going to say more!
2 years ago I scratched my cornea taking down Xmas lights, it didn't hurt at first but a few hrs later my eye was tearing so much ( I guess it was the way the eye was trying to clean the cut) and from the tearing it was forcing the eye shut so much that the other eye was closed, along with the worst pain I've ever been in ( I've been shot and the eye was worse). After 3 days of having both eyes closed it was better and I see just fine. I now know how it is to be blind and wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy.

Hey Paul, its Chad from Jeffs RC Studio, you let me run you 4.0 Monday night. Just wanted to say thanks again, and hope your eye is doing better. Need those things to race for sure. I ordered a 4.5 and wanted to make sure my gearing was right as I forgot what FDR u said to run. Blinky 4.5t, 114/26 = 8.33 FDR, will that work? I could get 116 spurs, but have a few 114 lying around and figured i'd use them. Thanks Again

Hi, I was using high rear and mid front roll center but with the low front roll center and soft front springs the car was too difficult threw switchbacks, the high front roll center helped with that and allowed me to continue to use the 2.3 ft springs.

Hi Chad. No problem, Glad you had fun!. yup, 114/26 blinky should be spot on for Jeffs track. start with 15-20deg motor timing and as im sure we talked about get a fan on the motor and speedo just to be safe.

Thanks

Hey Paul, I would also like to know the difference between the lg1 and lg2?? When do you use each one and how you prep your tires for asphalt. Thanks for time.

Regards Pete.
