Hello, i need some advice about setup, i have more setups for my old cyclone car for asphalt, but i think the TCX car need some differencess in setup, i think to start with Hara low grip setup, this is for carpet, i run in low grip asphalt, i think it will work.
Any recomendations would be appreciated.

Thanks FranH, for your responses.

Thanks, Luis C.

Nice work Dman

I run virtually the same settings as I did for my TC, 30w oil allround and less droop, otherwise it is the same.

Thanks for the info everyone much appreciated.

Ran my TCX this past weekend, the car is very good.
very stable throughout the track.
very easy to fix driving errors, cars reacts very quick to steering input.

Build quality is fantastic.

had a little problem with traction rolling so have to work that out but it was only on certain parts of the track.

Not sure if this has been answered but are there any Front Steel dog bones for the front, it's the only thing on the car I find myself checking over and over again.

For anyone running 17.5 Stock Non boosted, I found a gear combo of 100 spur with 52 pinion worked great,
had to take the motor mount brace off to keep the pinion from hitting
using a spur from 100 to 104 is probably the best option.

the victim is a hpi rs4 rally
i use reedy wolfpacks - 7.2v, nimh, 3600mah.
and i wanna tune for bashing(all round run and relyability)
so could one of u give me a pointer on what pinion/spur gears?
thanks jim

That's actually the Tamiya High Torque Servo Saver with a purple horn from 3Racing.

I have the same one.
