The most important thing for a track like that is going to be tires.

Biggest thing I would say is don't use the stock 2000 wt. diff oil front and rear, front must be heavier than the rear.
thanks grape juice,

yeah its kinda true that most car stil need minor adjustment out of the box, there is one brand which is mugen, i find that their stock setting work well.
of coz wit the right tyre compound to use as well..


thanks for sharing Grape juice.

1+, On a "not so tight" track, I went with 10k front and 5k rear and loved it. Once they changed the track a bit (much tighter and technical) 10k and 3k rear seems really good.

In some cases, you may use 2k in the rear, but I don't think I would ever put 2k in the front.

Grape, what are you running in the diffs?

Right now I'm using 15k front and 5k rear, I run on a small track (80'x40'), very high bite, run slicks there once the track gets grooved in.

Look around on here for a set-up that fits your track, type of dirt, traction level....

If you do paint it paint the top. If you paint the underside it will flake off and look like doo-doo. You do not want your Rango looking like doo-doo do you?

The old scotch-brite works good but is amatuer (no offense DLewis). I have a media blaster here at work and can frost that puppy for you if you like!

Cool danger thanks.

When you lock the center diff in over the battery strap, the pin is having a lot of trouble going all the way through, any tips?

File the ends so that they taper slightly.

Scotch-brite amatuer .....not everyone has a media blaster, let alone one they can bring to the track

People have been tapering the ends to help guide it through.

I had the same issue. I took a small drill bit in a pin vise and opened up a little. I forgot to mention that about the build but is a minor detail.

I know! I was just being a clown. I do not own the media blaster but is at my work. I am sure somebody paid at least $500 for that thing and I am the only one to use it. I can frost you a wing too if you like. I want my wing to be black actually. Can you dye lexan?

Dang! I wish someone would make a molded wing for these for me to try. It it was fairly thin and flexible would be sweet. Anyone want to give me money to have a mold built? I need like $30k probably . . .
