First timer Touring car racer....
I got my used roller DETC last week, hastily assembled it Friday morning, and Raced That night....by race I mean 4 practise laps, and one race lap...
Between a messed up ESC, too short a set screw in a shock mount, a Servo with no servo saver and not checking everything it wasn't a good outing, but I still had fun.
Can't blame the car though....it was pure rookie driver error rushing to race and not checking everything first.
The car is now Reassembled, proper set screws, new Parma front bumper, freshly painted body (good from 10 feet squinting....don't look too close though
) and everything working. Race is this Friday night, and I hope to have a better race night.
Only things I note that could be issues....The shocks seem super soft and have little rebound, should I rebuild them over the Xmas holiday?
Does anyone have any recommended setups for a medium grip carpet? track is different each week, usually with a tight infield, and some long outside straights.
Any suggestions for a newbie would be helpful
