Perfect.

Thanks Mike..

How about a variation on this one... front spool or gear diff for a 6.1 running VTA on a large asphalt track? And if I should go with the gear diff, starting point for fluid (or front putty/etc?) I realize the car is overkill for VTA, and new enough to where there's not a lot of VTA related conversations floating around for it.

Default Sedan Tires Questions

My last practice after our local race is pretty good. Look forward to next weeks race to put it to the test. My question is how do I know when the tires are toast? I mean I could have crappy setup but good tires so how do I know on carpet and asphalt when they are give away's and when they still have life on them?

Curious also do they get to flimsy or thin when they get old. Is it the rubber surface?

I've raced sedan earlier in it's evolution but not enough to know for certain when or how long they last on various conditions

Preemptive thanks

Kel

i've run this setup with a tekin or LRP Stock spec v2

Sorry, I don't run the gear diff in the front. Just haven't done any racing/testing with it. I like the new spool and I've got a pretty good starting point for VTA if your interested.

I tried, they were to short and the blades had to be drilled. How did you get the length

If you run the spool you can shim out the outdrive cups with a 1mm shim.

So I just recently purchased one of these and am looking forward to getting it on the track. The only thing slowing me down so far was the lipo battery straps/holder was not in the kit. Currently i'm waiting on it so I can finish assembly. I'm going to be using a Spectrum dx2s with a Spectrum S6070 low profile servo. I will be using a mamba max pro with the castle creations 4 pole 4600kv motor. I'm curious where you guys would start gearing wise on a medium length asphalt course (using the stock 48 pitch spur)?
