Hi.
This is a rule of thumb for non timing speedos and any motor manufacture. depending on the track size and motor it could be a tooth or two on the pinion different. for timing speedos it depends completely on the speedo setting and their is many different gearing options based upon the timing settings on the speedo.
Everyone needs to take notice of motor temp at 3min when trying a new set up to ensure not to blow a motor. any manufactures motor will taper off in on track performance around 190deg (magnet gets weak) and most manufactures will not blow up untill 210-230 deg or more. if at 3 min your motor exceeds 170deg you are most likely too aggressive on gear or timing for a 6 min run.

Again this is for non timing speedos and just a good rule of thumb for a starting point.
21.5 turn, 3.6 overall
17.5 turn, 4.2 overall
13.5 turn, 5.1 overall
10.5 turn, 5.7 overall
5 turn, 8.1 overall
4.5 turn, 8.4 overall
4 turn, 8.9 overall

hope this helps a little. Thanks

Thanks for the insight...and for clearing up the spring issue, that's what really threw me off. 2.6F springs, 700F oil, and anti-dive all at the same time had me scratching my head! Looking forward to watching you wheel at ETS...sure would be nice to see a US driver on the podium!

Hi. At the reedy race their was a 5 min FX2 sauce rule that was inforced for the invitational drivers, so that is what we all used their, and FX2 has proven to work well on asphalt. When I can use any sauce any way that I want, I normally like to not use tire warmers, I feel like warmers can be very good but can also be very bad if not done right. I try to take as many varibles out as i can when saucing tires.
I have been using my own sauce for almost 2 years. It is now being sold by RCAMERICA, it is called "Liquid Gravity", their are two kinds LG1 and LG2, LG1 is agressive and penitrates rubber and LG2 has a much higher oil content and is a great treatment for used tires.
For new tires i reccomend to clean tires with motor spray then sauce with LG1, let air dry completely and simply run. For used tires I recommend to clean the tires with LG1, let dry completely then rub in a small amount of LG2 and also let dry, then run. I find that this method is easily duplicable and works well.


Thanks

Hi. I like the Futaba S9551 short case servo. I use Thunderpower motors and batterys, i have tested a lot with Thunderpower on the equipment and i think its good. I use a Lrp sxx speed controller.
For the TC6 on asphalt i would look for Rick howarts set up from this years reedy race, his car looked pretty good. For carpet i would check out some of Kevin Heberts carpet set ups, look for the 2010 TimeZone Grand Prix or the 2010 halloweene classic i would try one of those first for his car looked good at those races.

Thanks, good luck!

Default Asphalt Assault Series

Hello Paul, I hope all is well with you and yours.

It was nice to see you at the Asphalt Assault Series race #2 at Strictly RC
last Saturday. I just wanted to say "thank you" for coming and providing
your expertise to all the drivers at the race. Always a gentleman you are!

Watching you blister the track on your exhibition runs was awsome as usual.
However, I would have "really" liked to see you participate in the actual
racing.... I think I heard you may be at race #5 at Leisure Hours Raceway
Aug 21st, for the finally...
Hopefully you will be able to race then, the last time I saw you run on that
track it was the most "impressive" pieces of driving I have ever seen!!!
....bar none!

Take care, and thanks again,
