Hi Paul,
We're running the following:
Tekin RS Pro ESC
Tekin Redline Gen2 6.5t
20t pinion/stock spur
Currently have RS Pro set at 20% drag brake and we like it but still curious what you like to run at.
Thanks!

I honestly have no idea what the equivalent drag brake would be to mine with that equipment. I run between 20 and 25% normally on my LRP so i can only guess that you are pretty close. I can check it out next time i run in to you though.

thanks

Paul, I’ve always used Thunder Power in all of my offroad cars, and had no problems. I’m thinking of switching to TP in my Touring Car. I normally have been running a 5.0 with a little boost, and it has worked well. I was wondering what motor/boost combo you run at Norcal? Thanks!

Hi! i uses a 4.5 at norcal, 25deg motor tining, geared 8.3. LRP flow speedo with 0 torque timing, 3 boost timing, 4 boost angle and activation, 1 turbo timing. this is where i would start, from their you can pour it on a bit with the speedo settings if needed.

Thanks

Paul have you ever tried running a short front camber link, and a long rear? If so what did you find it does. Also what about the other way around; long link front and short link rear? Thanks for the awesome thread! Very informative.

Hi I have never tested the new Orion motor but i can say that i have never felt that i was at a lack of power with the Z3R 4.5.

Thanks

Hi. Lately i have been running my camber links middle all around for the most part. with set up it is sometimes a lot of give and take so i would say that the advantage of going to a long front and short rear link would be that the car should have really good forward traction, i think that the disadvantage would be that the car could become hard to drive in quick switchbacks as the rear would stay very flat and the front would have more roll. Of course this is with a hypothetical set up and conditions surrounding the changes. With a long rear link and short front link I think that its advantage would be initial steering and a better rear to front roll balance in the corner but i think that the car would lack forward traction. Im not sure if this across the board with all cars though, because every so often something that seems so set in stone will flip and work opposite as the weight rules power and designs change.

thanks

Hi. I have run the Flow at the last few events because i am comfortable with it on normal size tracks. For large tracks i have been more comfortable with the hobbywing, so i still have both as a option depending on the track.
