Best of Luck in the Mains.

Paul,

What CST would you recommend in the gear Diff for medium to high bite asphalt ? ..... or maybe what range of CST and how that would affect things...i.e. going say from 1000cst to 3000 cst etc.

Also, if you needed more on power steering from mid corner to exit , what would be the first thing you would change to try and acheive that.

Thanks,

Rich

Paul, thanks for the setup help at the Mile high indoor champs. I really liked the new tires also. Have you tried them on asphalt?

I have purchased your new unmounted G-Spec type C tires and was wondering if they come with inserts. If not, what type would you recommend (hard, med. or soft) for 17.5 ? I will be running the McAllister prototype class w/ these tires. Thanks.

Cool Futaba Radio Questions

Happy Easter Paul. Hey since you run Futaba radio systems do you run HRS or PPM? Does it make a difference for the brushless ESCs? Just picked up a HobbyWing 2S 3.1. Also, do need to switch throttle servo to reverse before programming?

Hi Rich, sorry for the delay. for asphalt I feel like the range is 2k-5K. 2K for low bite and or Hot track surface. Then thicker for med bite and for high bite and or moderate temp conditions 4 or 5K. At the pre worlds many were trying even thicker but for me I still liked between 2 and 5K.
On asphalt if you have a on power push it is likely that your rear diff is too light. Otherwise i would lay the rear shocks down or use more ackermann shimming on the steering rack.

No problem! I tried that rubber compound (not the tire) in the testing stages on asphalt with moderate success. I did feel like I needed to do a "Asphalt" compound as well though so i also made the Type A.

Hi. Your tires are shipping today, Thanks for the order!!
They do not come with inserts.
I would recommend something In the Med range. Last time I was at Harbor they had a pretty good selection of inserts that you could try. Otherwise the Sweep Thin inserts should fit pretty well.

Hi. I would use HRS but for it to work properly I think you have the compatible receiver. I use the Super R with the R614FF Rx.
I did not have to switch the throttle to reverse to set my V3.1 but as I dont think its a big deal as long as its working right.

Thanks

Paul, I just want to thank you for the shirt for my daughter at Reedy Race. She was very excited to meet you and very happy with the shirt. I suspect you have one more fan under our roof. Thanks again Paul.

Hi Paul,

It was nice meeting you at RROC. I also wanted to thank you for taking the time to show our group how to prep our tires with LG1 and LG2 and also providing us with LG2.

Paul, congrats on your finish at the RROC. What is the benefit to running the aluminum chassis on the T4, also under what conditions would you recommend using it? I've heard some say only carpet, i've heard others say both carpet and asphalt. Thanks...

Hi, I think the aluminum chassis can work well on both carpet and asphalt. Im not saying its always better or worse for iether. I feel like on asphalt it can give the car more forward traction as it is not as twisted up coming off the corner, but as always each set up and surface will prefer something different.

Attached is a link to my reedy set up. it worked pretty well.

Thanks!
