Hi, does anyone have a base setup for the RCGT class on a med-size, med-high grip carpet track? I currently have the Cyclone TC with HPI X-Pattern 65mm/26mm tires and a 17.5 brushless motor.

Thx.

A picture with your post, when trouble shooting, will probably get more rctech help than without...

Nice! I just put an Exotek chassis on my car. I'll be testing it this week and let everyone know how it performs. The fit and finish is awesome, and my car balanced out spot on in the middle battery position.

I put one on my car along with cut top decks (frt & rear) and thought that it was to soft so I put the uncut front deck back on and it seems better (17.5/rubber/carpet).
Interested in your thoughts.
Thanks.

Yea, I'll be running with uncut top and mid decks to start. That combination alone is softer than the std bottom deck, and cut upper and mid deck combo. It'll be interesting for sure. All I know is, my battery won't be flying out anymore when I have a racing incident

We had a discussion about the Exotek Chassis in a german forum a Alexander Stocker wrote that due to the missing cutouts the Chassis is harder than the one from the kit, though it's only 2mm.
Therefore he is running cut topdecks.

I did a comparison with my two cars side by side. One with the Exotek and full top decks, and the other with a standard TC chassis and cut top and mid decks. The car with the Exotek chassis was softer for sure. Either way, I look forward to running it on the track.

Well I can break just about any car, and the worst i ever done was a knuckle and hub when my failsafe died and the car hit a concrete wall at full speed. In fact I bought a shed load of wishbones, knuckles, and C-hubs and still have them all, the only things I had issues with were the purple alloy Pro 4 CVD's that I was using with a spool, kept shearing them, put on the TC hardened ones and never looked back.

Honestly my mates have x-rays and they break much more stuff than I do, so go for it get a cyclone you won't regret it.

Thanks for the response, The TC isnt outdated though is it? I know its been out a while... I might be leaning towards cyclone now in stead of xray
