What connectors are you using at the moment?

If you do not race, a program card is not necessary.

I have traxxas connectors and I just got a off road from eBay that has tamiya so I'm going to have to change the tamiya anyway . I was just wondering if dean's are better to use.
I never used a program card before. So that's good I don't have to worry about using one.

Even when racing, a program card is optional.

Deans are preferred. But traxxas or tamiya connectors will be fine.

Default Sway bars

I have an XI Sport without them. Those bars will improve handling?. Both bars are needed?.
With this set I will be ok?.

You will require parts in SAK-45 to properly mount the swaybars.

Tuning wise, swaybars are only necessary if you have already tuned with tires and springs. What is your current setup, and what are you observing the car to do?

Thanks for your response. Thereīs a local track where Iīm driving and a friend of mine that has the same car, told me that swaybars are a must. Donīt know if thatīs true.

Hereīs my setup.

It depends on how your car is reacting. Is he out-turning you or are you flipping over when turn?

I noticed that it is out-turning sometimes.

If he is out-turning you, then swaybars (which create understeer for the end they are installed on), may not be the best solution. The car is likely pushing because of the 5.5 motor.

The stock manual setup is a very good starting point for asphalt.

My setup on page 63 will also work on asphalt, and I have used it with as low as a 10.5 with heavy boost.

Hope this helps.

I ran 66/32 with a 10.5 motor and plenty of boost.

This might sound silly, but I'll ask anyway. In which direction do others mount a fan? Having the fan blow toward the motor seems to make sense, but the mount is behind the motor, and at speed, it seems the air moving through the car would counter the fan, leaving no air moving over the motor. Mounting the fan blowing away from the motor could theoretically help pull heat from the motor, but it's somewhat far away, and I don't think it'd help much...

I don't know the science behind it. But it probably has something to do with the difference of the air speed and the ground speed and never being being in opposite directions for too long of a period.

Mount it in the back on the post provided. It works. I recommend the pink YR tornado fan.

Mount the fan like this if you have space. Keeps all the weight more centralized. This is an ultra thick R1 fan and it has no issues. Make sure you're not blocking airflow front the front intake and have the fan far away enough from the motor to make sure efficiency isn't sacrificed. You'll hear when the fan motor is straining.
