Thanks guys for the info. Now I understand gear diff oil setup a lot easier.

I don't think I will want to slow the front end of the car down too much as I do like a car that changes direction well, as long as the change of direction doesnt cause grip roll (i'll use 42/40 tyres which is what would be a usual tyre compound for my local club and kit springs to start with).

And I must open my eyes a bit more with finding the gear oil - I dont usually need to buy too much in the way of rc stuff and have only ever supported my local rc shop (rc-direct) who recently closed, hence my "where do I get r/c stuff from that i've never purchased before" moment...

Ty chasingthepack - i'll get the brand of gear oil you suggest, should needs must

As for the front differential - yes sorry if I didn't already mention it, i'll be getting one as an extra at the same time as getting the car as I race on foams and need the extra rotation up front that a diff gives.

Hi Guys,

Can anyone suggest a suitable set-up for very low grip asphalt & what tyres are people finding most suitable with this chassis

Many thanks in advance...

Mate,

Im not sure about very low grip, but to give you a local benchmark, I ran my T4 at the Challenge Cup at Castle Hill a couple of weeks ago.

I ran the kit set-up as shown in the set-up sheet for asphalt that has 1mm shims for the inner camber links front and rear. The only difference was that I had 2mm bump steer on the steering knuckles, not 4mm.

My car has the graphite arms front and rear and ECS up front.

Tyres- I started with Muchmore Absolute VPM32C the old SMA Staple. The second heat I changed to the new Muchmore Rush 36XC and found I could hold a much tighter line through the sweeper with those, which gave a better entry to the chicane 1 extra lap. The 36XC was the handout tyre at the recent Muchmore Masters and were well received by all classes.

The car was terrific at The Hill I was the limiting factor. It was pretty close racing, if you check out the fastest single lap times you will see there is less than 1 second across the first 21 drivers in Blinky.

At Riverstone a month earlier I used Ride Blue RE28. The inside of that old brick building is as cold as a Mother-In-Laws Kiss, and I learned that the locals run 25s. The Ride Blues are quite light as they contain open cell foam inserts and I was actually under-weight. They pereformed fine but wore quickly.

Most find the Mazda 6 a little easier to drive with the LTC-R a bit sharper (faster).

Hopefully this might give you a reference point.
Cheers,
Brent

Hi Brent,

Many thanks for your tips

That 11.5 I got off you two months ago went like a beauty, I just threw the electrics in & ran it... haven't touched it since but if I'm lucky will give it a run tonight

Hope to catch you soon

Jim

Well, I finally got the car together. Smooth built, apart from bad threads on one of forward-facing steering ball studs. I ghetto'd it together with some parts from my pit box.

The weight, weight balance, and damping are all much different from my Mi4CXL. It should be interesting when I get it on track. Hoping to shake it down tomorrow if I can bum a spur off someone.

Did the body post holes change from the T3?

Anyone tried the CSO chassis for the T4? Any of them? I know they have a bunch of different thicknesses.

I picked up a T4 from a buddy of mine for a good price but it needs a new chassis, so I'm just looking at my options.

Try the Smokem racing product chassis T4MX it's 2.25mm thick and only 69.00. I am using one and I am very happy with it.
