Hi Paul I would like to thank you for the setup help, it's really help a lot I need some little homework to do make the car better and competitive.

Btw Paul what speedo and motor are you running on Mod class, I'm thinking to switch with 4.5 I currently running 10.5 Tekin, where I can find your speedo motor set up for 4.5?
Thanks

Hey Paul, I was wondering if you know a FDR and the Timing I need to run on my TC. I will be using a ThunderPower 7.5 with no boost.

Hi Paul,

Just wondering if you find that the left rear shock requires just a little more preload in order to tweak out your car? I have checked everything on my car, (and I mean everything) for equal length, flatness, suspension settings, and for some reason I find I have to put a little more preload into the left rear shock. Is this normal or have I missed something?

As always thanks.

No problem. I run Thunderpower z3r motors and 5300 65c batterys, with a lrp sxxtc v2 speedo settings 2,6,3,0, gearing for a 4.5 8.5 overall for starters.

i dont know for sure, but I guess i would try a 7.3 overall with 25deg timing.
good luck!

If by a little you mean 1/4th of a turn i think you are totally fine. i have had cars that need to be a little one way or the other. but 1/4th of a turn in on one side and out on the other is no problem atall.

Thanks

Dear Dearest Friend Paul,

I have been looking at some 1/8th scale electric cars and am currently thinking about going with the MBX6 Eco buggy. I have always been a fan of Mugen Skeiki but they are soo expensive i could never afford one, but this one is only $469 and I would have to buy brushless system, but that shouldnt be too much of a problem! Tell me what you think ! I think it would be a good buy since it just came out and they have parts for this, and Im sure electric will win over nitro one day haha!


Your Friend,


Alex/TEXT

Paul, I'm thinking about purchasing a set of swaybars for my T311 and want to make sure that I use them well. I have not made any adjustments with them ever, and want to know if I will get any kind of adjustments if I do decide to purchase them. I'm thinking about getting sets of 1.2, and 1.6 for the front and I want 1.4, and 1.6 for the rear. Do you make sway adjustments ever? What are the advantages vs the disadvantages? The only changes I make on my car is making chassis stiff or loose taking out screws, and putting them back in when the traction comes up. I have no problems with traction roll, but at times I either push or get loose in the rear. Thanks for the advise.

I have a 1.1 and 1.4 for the rear, you'll never need 1.6, certainly not if your running rubber.

Default Bravo Paul!

Good day!

I race wit a local club in Victoria BC called IROCC (Island Radio Operated Car Club). I have been pitting and racing with a young man named Lucas who last year was diegnosed with cancer. Paul was in our neck of the woods for a race in Vanvouver last winter. Some of our club racers attended this race an asked Paul if he could help us get Lucas a new car at a good price. Well, Paul did one better and put together a car from his inventory of parts and sent it to Lucas with an X-ray pit towel, a personalized pit board, a body he used in his last race and the trophy from that race!

I must say that this was an outstanding thing to do and Lucas made it out for his first race today with the car and he had a huge smile on his face all day and bumped from the D main to tha C main!

Bravo Paul, bravo!

Neil.
