Thanks Paul

I knew I should sent you EXP30's too! .... next time!

Hope to see you before then Paul. We will be over for TCS

As you know, Jason is going to run GT1, Buggy and Rally. I hope he can tell which car is his for Rally. We are really looking forward to this. Thanks so much for all the setup help, it is so cool for you to share your knowledge and experience. It has really made a difference for us.

Keith and Jason.

Hey Paul - hope all is well.

Based on the stock rubber asphalt setup for the 008, do you have any suggestions with setup running Jaco Blues on a pretty open parking lot track?

Also, how much does shock oil viscosities affect the car? I have some Losi 30wt oil but I'm not sure if I should ditch it for the xray shock oil.

Thanks!

No wanting to but in...

However run stock setup on T3 with 2.8 front and 2.4 back

My car handles on rails with this setup, normally just change spring rating to find the steering responce I want.

I ran the Speed 6 at the Reedy last year. I run the same body for stock and mod. I still like that body.

Hi Dane, Tire prep is really important for a low grip asphalt track. I normally rub in a few drops of tire tweak then let them sit till the tire is totally dry. but definately try some different ways. I would switch to xray oil, i know that it is expensive but for what we do (on road) a bottle will last a really long time. that way we know just what you have in your shocks.

I would look at the 08 reedy set ups from me and ralph, i remember ralphs car being pretty good their, after you run and see how it handles i canmake some suggestions. Thanks
