Almost forgot. what's a good starting point for the t4 on the 17.5 motor/blue rotor on an 83x40 track? During build I tried to get to 3.73 i think you mentioned in an earlier post, is that still the target considering the track size?

I'd think 4.55 might be better for you. Work up to it slowly.

You'll need a 68-70T spur and 34-36T pinions. I like to stay with 48pitch for ease of setting and finishing all my races.

how about 96 spur and 49 pinion 64 pitch. because that's what I already burned money on.

Hi,l I always just servo tape my fan to the chassis and have never had any problems with it. I use the Gravity GRC351 fan plugged in to the RX and it blows pleanty of air. Thanks!

With the Blue rotor i would say that a 3.9 with 30 deg timing is a good starting point. any more gear or timing would be pushing it right off the bat.
Thanks!

I do know Craig, I would give him the benefit of the doubt on this one.

Thanks

This worked out great Paul! Now I'm curious why you called it a "starting point", is there more in that motor I don't know about?

I'm going to get the green rotor for my 12th scale but needless to say, I am very impressed with the TP motor/Rotor combo.

Glad it worked well!. No Their is nothing more. When i say starting point its just where i would start on almost any given track. From that their will be variables which may need some extra tuning to get perfect. Variables that will make a difference from one driver to another might be. Driving style, speedo, car , track layout, grip level, tire size, air temp etc etc. So one set up is never perfect for everyone. But i try and get my "starting points" to be as universal as possible.

Thanks!

I have a question about the the new USGT spec tires. I am running a associated TC6.1 and a Subaru body and the problem I am having is the car slides all over in the rear I have done alot of changes with little or no improvements. Sombody suggested body and I keep pointing to the tires. If I put that car back into VTA set up it runs fine But when it goes back into USGT setup which is weight and body and tires. It slides all over.

Any help would be great thanks Chris

Hi, Im going to throw up our PM conversation, just in case anyone has any suggestions as well, as i am not so familiar with USGT. Thanks!

"I can understand that some could struggle with the tire, it is not a high performance tire and was made really to be long lasting and in expensive, which seems to have helped this class grow.
That being said you should be able to get the car working well enough on them to have lots of fun.

First I know that they do need to be run and broken in to achieve better grip.

Second I would try saucing the rears only at first to try and soften up the rears more and get better grip.

Third I would make sure that any weight added to the car is placed forward on the chassis, not back.

Fifth i would decrease front camber to only .5deg per side and increase the rear camber to 3deg. "

After these steps if the car is still bad i would definitely look for a new body as that can make a Huge difference.

Thats where i would start. Good luck!
