What what you change to suit asphalt? I mainly run at night on low to med grip surface.
On our track the Ride R1 rears and pit 571 fronts seems to work well, so i will be running these tyres.
I just completed my Exotek F1R2 build with TRF101 front end.
This is what I ran this Saturday at Tamiya for the Grand Club Race. These are the settings I used to run with the old style front end... what I ran saturday was a weee bit different lol
the setup is almost identical just change the diff lube and the side springs. I do not have much experience with the ride tires but i know that my setup works well with both shimi and sweep and tamiya kits. If rides are the best tire for your track Im sure the setup will be an ok starting point.
4.0mm hide height
8.0 degrees caster
Associated 0.016 front springs
-1.5 degrees camber
2 degrees toe out
Standard Tamiya In-line front axle
2mm bump steer (the steering links should be slightly pointing down toward the center of the car at hide height “\ servo /”)
25 weight (Associated oil)
Tamiya fluorescent Red Spring (looks like orange though)
1mm droop (thread lock the spring retainer onto the shock shaft)
raise the rear female ball stud 6mm for better shock movement
Associated kit silver spring (asphalt)
10-15K oil in dampers
No washers under any of the side links
34/86 gearing (64 pitch)
Casper Rc Diff lube on diff balls. Ae stealth lube is also good (asphalt)
4.0 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 72 rear
Kit Tamiya front with stock foam
Cleaned tires with lighter fluid
LRP asphalt tire sauce. Whole rear and half front. Baked at 55 degrees C for 15 minutes. Tire tweak with no warmers is what i normally run though!
LRP 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)
Hope this helps!
