Guy's if you can wait a little longer to buy a speedo then look at the TEKIN G-10. You will not be sorry. Its what I have in my G+. I have used TEKIN products since 1992. There is none better so we are very lucky to have new owners who will be making the G-10 and the 112ca and 112a chargers the first products out there door.

You know that you want one too.....
I'm very happy with the schuie and it has droop screws that work. The Losi is still be far the most consistent car that I have ever driven but the MI2 is slowly getting there. I have it feeling somewhat like my Losi and it's only going to get better. Bigdog will have a dialed Losi since he's getting my old car. It's been collecting dust waiting for a home since someone faked on buying it the first time when I had numerous people wanting it. Oh well.....his loss is bigdog's gain.

Do you have a spare 27 band receiver that I can use until I get my one from KO back????

Mainracer- I notice you have a capacitor on your speed control. What type is it and do you like it? Think about getting one for my car - I don't know how they work or if I need one for stock racing.

Mainracer - I also noticed that you have the long tie rod coming from your servo. What does this do for your steering?

it is a regular world kit for the lrp quantum not sure if the qc1 and qc2 has the same capacitor. well I think it is a plus but I raced without before I got it and it doesnt make a big difference I think It will be more usefull in mod !

as for the link on the servo I think it is a bit easier to ajust but it doesnt give much.....

Default How do I setup my car for asphalt

I have a race in 2 weeks on asphalt. I have only been racing on carpet in the stock class. I basically have a stock setup. What type of changes do I need to make to droop, ride height, springs, tires, etc. I went to the Losi site to check on setup sheets, but I have come to realize that I do not have the same reaction times that pros have and I have had better luck with small changes to the stock setup. The track looks like it will be a little small and a little bumpy. Any sugestions?

Mainracer - thank you

Anyone have any comments on a capacitor for an LRP Q2 for stock racing

The Mi2 is definately making a name for itself down here as well, it's an impressive car I must admit...

well for the tires I think you should look at what the fastest guy are running... for the setup it depend a lot if the track is slypery or lots of traction if it is with rubber or foam ... but I would suggest you to start with the stock piston (56 ) and 50 oil all around and soften your spring ...
