Is 450cst typical shock oil for these smaller shocks on this car? Any special setups for carpet on Exo6?

I've got two set ups going right now. One for USGT and one for 17.5. I'll get them up in the morning. They are both works in progress, but they are great starting points. Stable and allows the car to go where you want it when you want it.

I started both cars with this set up. Didn't touch the USGT car all day since it was working so well. Was having violent snap rolls with 17.5 and fought it half the day until I switched from sweeps to Jaco Blues. After that car handled very well with the changes that had been made.

Starting set up. For USGT

Shock positions fr-4. R-5



For 17.5 changes Dodge Dart body

76 spur 47 pinion
Front shocks RSD blue
1mm spacers under front pivot blocks
0 spacers under rear
1mm spacers on inner Ackerman steering linkage
3k diff fluid

you are using the 39t gears? or the 40? as the tb04 diff gear has 3/32 diff balls for the Tamiya diff

TB03/EVO5gears.

Thanks theproffesor, I will try that. What split blocks are needed for I
the inner front and rear pivot blocks? I might need the extra flex when racing on asphalt.

Are you running the EXO 6 conversion. If so, I wouldn't really worry about spilt blocks in the rear, the motor mount is so close, I don't think it would make a difference.

Those set-ups are for carpet, not asphalt. There is a good asphalt set up on the exotek site.

Am just got both my cars hooked up with the TA05 front C hubs. I won't get a chance to run them on the track until November, but I like them better than stock already. The are a little snug, but have ZERO slop. The stock C hubs had a tremendous amount of play in then from the top hat bushings. Hopefully the TA06 hubs hold up to my driving skills. If not, the next step would be some modded X-Ray hubs.

The more larger hole C-hubs meant for the DCJ have a lot of slop. Seems Tamiya still has not fixed this. The 418 had the older style C-hubs (same as TA05 molded ones with smaller opening), and they are a lot less sloppy.

Yes for some reason the DCJ chubs use different diameter king pin collars (4.5/4.6). The bottom hole has tighter tolerances but the top hole has noticeable slop. I just lined the hole with some CA glue to remove some of the play.

How loud are you guys drive train? Mine is pretty loud compared to an Awesomatix. What can you do to make it quieter?

If your drive train is noisy you have damaged the ring or the pinion gear one is missing a tooth most likely. You may need shim the pinion out or shim the crown gear. Mine was noisy and that was the problem when ever I here a noise that is what I check for
