would be nice if everything was cheaper
im only running 540 hate to see the cost of mod or open nitro tourer
aus_jd,

At the track you race at, I would happily run the same tyre/insert/rim combo all year round and would simply keep re-using inserts and rims. In 540 you should EASILY be able to run several race meetings on a set of tyres. Even in mod at that track we can run something like 15 runs on a set of tyres.

I think this has been suggested before, but I'll say it again. By far the best use of your money and time will be in practicing. You do not need a setup station. You do not need digitally controlled tyre warmers. You do not need heaps of new gear. What you need is track time, and careful thought about track time.

My sincere suggestion to you is to go to my website below and find and download the R/C Handbook. This handbook is not going to help you win a national title, but it is going to help you figure out how to get the car handling the way you want it to, how to best spend you hard earned and limited $$ and most of all how to have fun.

The best use of the combined brains on this thread will be if you post a setup sheet properly filled out (so people can see exactly what setup you are running) and then specific questions. EG, my setup is XXXXX and I want my car to turn in a little harder in long sweeping corners. The the good folks here can give you constructive advice.

Heavy is absolutely correct, this hobby can be as expensive as you want it to be. I would hate to see you give up because you think you have to spend thousands to be competitive. More than anything you need track time. When you get that your next major purchase would be to upgrade your car to the latest model (the EC) again so that the good and helpful folks here can give you more up to date advice.

Cheers, enjoy your racing. That's all that really matters.

Scott

ps I don't get to logan often but am happy to help out when I do. I am at hobbystation every second wednesday night so consider coming and racing there with us as well as sat nights at logan.

Easy buddy...I think Weylin's 19t time was faster than your mod time

Burn!

I've never owned setup wheels. I always bummed Brian's hudy system cause he was always with me. But now that he is getting married and buying a house I gotta find a new friend with the stuff I can't afford
