My name is Aaron Lane and I have had a lot of success with this setup on carpet so far. I am always trying little things here and there but this is what I mainly run and or go back to!
I think I got most everything written down, but let me know what you guys think and if you have any questions. I am happy to help!
TQ RC Raceway
65-75 degrees outside temperature
3.5mm hide height
8.5 degrees caster
Associated 0.016 front springs
-1.5 degrees camber
2 degrees toe out
Standard Tamiya In-line front axle
2mm bump steer
20 weight (Associated oil)
Tamiya Red Spring (looks like orange though)
raise the rear female ball stud 6mm for better shock movement
Associated black spring
10-15K oil in dampers
No washers under any of the side links
Tamiya 101 rear axle
3.5 mm ride height
*Tip: if your bearing insert is lose inside of the rear pod, the holes for the wing mount plate are drilled and tapped through to the axle. I used a slightly longer screw through the top hole to act as a setscrew.
Pit 74/75 combo with optional soft insert in the front
Sauce the entire rear and 1/3 to ½ of the inside front tire
SXT 2.0 tire sauce
Cleaned with Tuning Haus Tire Cleaner/ Conditioner
Winglets with 5 grams on each side
Reedy Sonic 2 Motor
Reedy short pack mounted forward
LRP SXX V2 mounted in the back with optional 3-barrel capacitor
X-ray servo saver
Tamiya F2012 Step nose body, rear wing, and front nose piece. I run the McLaren front wing (The holes line up between nosepiece and wing. The old Ferrari wing will not line up with the F2012 nosepiece however)
the only thing i really change is running the standard associated silver side spring, long wheelbase, running pit 71/72's with the softer front insert, and I use Associated chassis tape on the bottom of my car.
