Yes, there is racing tomorrow.

The 3800kV motor would be faster than the 13.5 motors that we use in our Pro2 class at a guess, but not legal anyway until approved by the committee.

You would have to run in the Pro4/Open class with that motor.

Seeing that you already have a pretty nice radio, I'd go a FT and give the rtr a miss. You'll just end up with stuff you'll never use. and spend more on upgrades.

I don't own one, but the way I see Peli drive his, they look pretty tough.
yeah i have a ft and havent broken any thing yet come down and have a look tomorrow . i am still learning but i love this truck

What about a set of tyres what fronts and rears should i get for the ryde track? what gearing, spur and pinion should i run?

also what spares should i look at picking up?

sorry for all the questions im still new to all this ive never raced offroad only been racing minis and touring cars for about 6 months ,but loooking forward to trying out offroad

Rules here are still current and there will be no move from 13.5.

Bowties M3 and M4 seem to be the go although with so many tires coming out it's hard to keep up with people running any combination of Calibers, Bowfighters, holeshots, goosebumps, snipers and whatever else that comes out next week.

Again motors is often personal preferance, if you run dynamic timing you can have too much power for these things and people still win with non timed escs probably 50% of the time.

For tires, yeah as shane said, just take your pick really. M4 bowties are super soft and provide excellent grip and also seem to last for an age, you can keep running them even when a sharp block edge has fallen off. I like the standard front tire, i had a set of M3 bowties up front and they were too aggresive for my style of driving. Its just fine tuning on the day, but if you have a set of kit tires, you cant go wrong on the front, bin them for the back/reuse the rims for a set of bowties, and then maybe pick up a set of holeshots (M4 as well).

As for motors/speedie setups, i run an SS novak (so a bit old now) and just a tcspec sphere. It has some sort of punch settings (all set to max) and just use that thorttle finger to control the power. Grab your 75tooth spur gear and as far as pinions go... the associated manuel got it spot on (26teeth)! I dropped a tooth to 25 in hotter weather to make sure i dont cook things when im out for 10+mins practising.

Manuel: http://www.teamassociated.com/pdf/ca...c10_manual.pdf

As for hexdrivers, i have a cheap $20 set that rip your hands apart when you use them, but just grab associateds set and they should have all you need. The rear wheel nuts, front wheel nuts and shocktower nuts are the only ones i use. all different sizes of course.

Hex driver sizes are .050 for the tiny hinge pin screws, 1/16th for most chassis screws, 3/32nd for top of the chassis. The associated pack again is your best friend. They leave out a 2mm wrench which is a pain!!!!! but if you do touring cars, you will already have one of those lying around.

http://www.losipartshouse.com/servle...eam-Hex/Detail

Spares - if you dont have an RPM front end (Arms, bulkhead/block, GT2 hinge pins and front bumper brace) you should grab a set of the standard arms, as they can be fragile when you have off track excursions! Loctite, superglue, various nuts and bolts (rear wheels nuts especially rattle loose if there the stock ones - grab the FT blue ones, heard they have better nylon in them/crimping and dont come as loose) and race tape and your sorted! Dont forget of course all your shock oils and springs etc for tuning to the conditions on the day.

Hope this helps. Cant wait to have a race this saturday!

Or a different system?

A guy ran one of those back in 09 for a while, but no. We use normal 540 size 13.5's (the old stock motor). I (when I get off my butt and get back into it) use a Ballistic/Havok set up, other guys use Venom's 13.5 and there are all sorts out there.

Sorry you didn't get a reply to your question when you had asked it, but i think Shane (RacerEd) and Daniel (DJB) have answered this recently now.

I have always liked M4 Bowties on the back and M3 Bowties on the front, but now with the warmer weather you would use a harder M2 compund on the front and M3 on the rear.

That is my preference though, i would ask the SCT current club champion Justin Page (Peli) for advice on tyres.

I wouldn't get too hung up on the electronics or motors (Dan ran a 17.5 for ages and was always at the pointy end), the only real differences are if you have dynamic timing or not, which will mean if you run high or low gearing. The biggest battle will be learning the track and jumps along with being easy on the throttle finger, having a lot of power in SCT does make tires more critical and wear quicker with often slower race times. Best just come along and run with what you know and then decide what you need to get next, then you'll also be able to talk to the regular guys and see what they are doing for themselves and they be more than happy to help you out.

thanks for the reply. i have recently sold my SC10 and upgraded to the Factory Team SC10 with all the bells and whistles as i wanted a clean start..
im running the team epic duo 2 motor with a tekin RS PRO. i have a few tyres to play with, so far m2 and m3 bowties on front... m2 calibers, m3 bowties, jconcepts subcultures, m4 bowfighters to try on the back.. im gonna order a pair of m4 calibers and bowties aswell as i have heard a few of you mention those.. look forward to getting down to the track once ive had some time to set it up..
