Just picked up my first 1/10 on-road - A used TC3 - and I'm looking for a little advice on gearing, setup, etc... Would appreciate any help you can offer..
I plan on using the car for some parking lot bashing and probably some drifting. If all goes well, I might use it for stock class racing next winter..
I've got a Novak GT7 ESC with no turn limit. The car itself is pretty much stock except for the carbon chassis.
Parking lot wise I'm looking at a HPI Firebolt 15T motor (our indoor racing series allows these or the Reedy Radon 30000RPM which is more expensive and out-of-stock at my LHS...) and stock TC3/4 tires.
Drift-wise I'm hoping to start with a Tamiya silver can and a set of ABS tires.
My main question is around spur and pinion choices for both of these setups. I'm at a bit of a loss here - for the 15T, thinking 72/25 or 26 from what I can work out on this chart http://aedownloads.com/downloads/man...rtr_manual.pdf
But I have no idea for drifting with the silver can..
The other thing I can't seem to figure out is whether or not a one-way diff or spool is necessary for drifting.. Would simply tightening up the front diff and loosening the rear be enough or is an upgrade essential?
Thanks is advance!!
