When using sticky icky magic sauce on foam tires do we just put light layer on top or use and let soak in? Foam tires like a sponge and I'm use to rubber off road.

Just SXT for TQ
Soak 10m 1/2 front, full rear
If you need more steering 3/4 front or more as needed

Thanks, I did buy the STX to add to my sauce collection.

Back home from the hospital and digging into some packages!

Huge thanks to Christian Tabush at Reflex Racing RSD for help with the transverse conversion kits mounting and tuning tips.

I have a charger ( Hitec X1) and what I hope is the rest of the odds and ends to get me started on order. I still want some bodies and pinion gears...

Pretty much any ESC will work with 1S, but you need to use an external voltage booster for the receiver/servo to work properly. I use the Novak unit with an old Tekin RS in my 12th scale.

Just make sure you either set the ESC voltage cutoff to 3.7 volt or off if that ESC doesn't have that option. If the default cutoff of 2S batteries are set it may not even try to work when you turn it on.

If Im not racing and just running on carpet track for fun how would this car be if I use my 2s shorty packs with a higher turn motor like at 17.5t? at this point its seeming cheaper to buy higher Turn motor? trying to keep my initial investment down.

You can definitely run a 2s shorty pack and a 17.5 or 13.5 motor. Last month Paul, James and David Banta from Arizona ran this set up in 1/12th mod. The speed will be comparable to your current mod motor.

Decisions decisions. Hmmm 55 to 60 grams more , must run battery sideways I assume. I can see having the extra weight to move around would help in mod. Dave, I think I even was reading somewhere you did 21.5 2s in your car = est. 10.5

I've seen a regular shorty run in a transverse setup, but I think they had to run the body a touch higher.

The shorty packs that RacinJ has seen in my car were the "Low Profile" Shorty batteries, which have the same dimensions of a regular 1s pack.

As far as speed in concerned, running the 2s pack with a 17.5t on boost will give you plenty of speed. According to my telemetry top speed was just over 40 mph. If that isn't fast enough, then run a 13.5t and hold on!

Had an awesome weekend with both of my 12R5.2's in modified and stock. I'll post some race info and my setup for both classes.

Looking forward to your post as I hobble around with my carbon fiber crutch
