I personally go the other way around on the SC tires. I run gridiron rear, 3d front. But that is just my .02 -MB-

You are right man, I mixed it up when I typed it out.

I started using that combination after you recommended it to me, and I haven't looked back.

Default First time racing

Hello Everyone,
I am new to RC and Wednesday will be my first night racing. I have watched a couple of events and have seen some of the setups that everyone brings out. I wanted to get your advice and see what are the essential items to bring to a race or practice.

Thanks in advance.

I like a foldable table(Walmart 30 dollars), camp chair, extension cord and lamp. Other than that any rc stuff you have. Tools, parts etc. what you don't have people are cool and will help you out.

Very cool you are getting into racing Zipster, it is a blast. I just got back into it a few months ago and am loving it.

Billy brings up a good point with the table, chair, extension cord, light. Those are all absolute must haves for setting up your pit for racing.

As far as tools go, a few things I like to have in my box are:

-Temperature gauge
-Set of hex wrenches
-Pliers
-Scissors
-Hobby Knife
-Soldering Iron
-Servo Tape
-Motor Spray
-Bearing Oil
-Paint Brush for cleaning car
-Setup gauges (toe in, camber, ride height)

I know I am forgetting a few things, but those items will give you a solid start.

Don't worry too much about having every little thing your first night out there. There are a lot of friendly people that will be more than willing to help you with stuff.

I'll add one thing since it's only been September since I bought my 9yo his first R/C car to start racing (I used to race in the 80's). Since I taught him on a buggy, but this applies to other "cars" as well to varying degrees, I found an electric screwdriver (and hex bits in the sizes needed) to be one of the best tools to have. Preferably one with a torque limiting clutch since you're obviously using it on small screws in plastic parts. The reason for this is particularly with the B4 buggy they tend to break arms frequently when crashed. Since my son was new, he was crashing all the time and replacing those damn things caused my wrists to go numb the first couple of weeks.

Correct, track is still wet and we are working on it to try and get it race ready.

We need help from mother nature as well right now.
