thanks Paul for your input. I'll need to spend more time at the track to get the gearing/timing right.

Hi Rosko. I feel like the car will drive more nimble with short camber links all around, have a touch more steering going in but will be a bit harder to drive. for me the mid camber links are a normally the best compromise.


Im off to vegas till the 15th, Thanks all.

Paul, on your 1/12 tires, what do the soft/med/hard equate to as far as the color ratings from other mfgs? Just need something to compare to when someone says to run black or pink etc. I tried to hit them with a durometer but there isn't enough rubber on the wheel

Special thanks to Paul Lemieux for all the help with my car this weekend at IIC. My car was hooked, my driving was my biggest obstacle. Your help helped me win both of my mains. Paul, you rock!

Hey Paul, I'm going to run 10.5 blinky touring at Speedworld for the first time, this weekend. The guys there are saying to start at 5.7 FDR, but I'm wondering what endbell timing would be good. It is a stock out of the box Thunder Power 10.5.

Thanks!

This past weekend I can at a track with low/med traction and my car was really good but I noticed its rolling a lot in the corners which seemed to give the most corner speed but in the last 5 laps or so it seemed to bind up in a few tight corners as the chassis is getting a lot of buildup on it ( it was cleaned between heats) have u figured anything out with the chassis drag issue? For me it would seem like a Teflon tape would be the ticket if there was such a product. Hint hint.

Can't you just increase the ride height a bit?
