I have an LRP Stock Spec 17.5 timing 4dot and a Stock Spec ESC blinky mode. My car is as fast or faster (down the straight) as any of the other cars. The temps are good. I have run the same gearing on asphault and carpet with no changes.

Thats exactly the gearing I'm running. 38. if its a tighter layout.

It all depends on the class you are going to run. Need more info. VTA vs Mod is a completely different answer.

Hey guys I have a question about setups. I have a tc6.1 and im running the box stock setup at the moment. I like the way the car feels with a few exceptions. My f/r camber is -2 and toe is at +.5. Shock oil is 40wt losi f/r and I'm running 35wt losi in gear diff. I would like the car to have more steering, and also rear traction as the rear drifts around corners. What adjustments would I need to do? I'm running 17.5 blinky with full timing and 96/52 on a medium to large asphalt track in hot weather. Any tips would be appreciated.

Longer rear camber links...

less rear droop...

less front camber...

slightly lighter rear shock oil and/or spring...

play with the dual rate on your radio...

lots of things to try.

If you're losing traction in the rear you already have too much steering.

thanks for the suggestions. the only pushes when its on power, and loses rear traction off power during hard turns. it doesn't spin out, but it tends to slide the rear around the turns and slows me down. so to clarify off power steering is great, but the mid corner on power steering is lacking. i think i might have the droop at 6 when it should be at 5 and maybe thats it. im also thinking of going to 37.5wt losi oil and see how it reacts. ill try 1 at a time and report back.

I felt the same way with the stock setup. The green rear springs, 35wt losi oil all around and adding another degree of rear toe made a big difference in locking the rear end in off power.

Why is it that every kit comes with a spool and rear diff now?

If the problems with wheel chatter are known due to spools, why not provide DCJ's from the mfr or at least with the kit?

Since gear diffs pretty much eliminate the possibility of slipping, why is there really a need for a spool in the front ? I suppose under low traction conditions i can see but wouldnt a diff provide better steering in med to high traction situations?

I have been driving a spool/rear diff for some time now and am considering trying a gear diff up front. Has anyone tried this with any success or is the spool really needed?
