I ran my TT this weekend with RX8/SCX4 5.5 combo, and couldn't be happier, started with a stock esc set up and 12 tooth pinion, and was very dissapointed, but after reading and playing with pinions, ended up with a 17tooth and custom esc profile that rocks!! Ran in on a big outdoor track with the 4wd SC and had a blast !!

Read somewhere about boiling some components to make more durable. I don't feel like reading through 1000's of pages to find again. Can anyone tell me what the most important parts to do this to are? And how long to boil for?

Thanks

Any ideas about how can I increase on-power steering? Maybe the front diff from 3k oil should go to 7k?
Depends what you have in the rear, I run 5000 front 2000 rear and center, camber -2 deg. and 1 deg. toe out.

My old track had 3 crazy turns one of which was at the end of a long down hill straight , and I was running 1000 rear 5000 front with good results... My friend runs 2000 rear and vasaline in the front he races well too... Its suck a pain to change the fluids I like the 2K 5K combo for all around racing...

Camber -1deg,0 deg toe(maybe it should be -1deg)
3k front oil,locked center diff(50%power front,50% rear),3k rear oil

What is the advantage of running a lighter oil in the center diff? I was going to put 5k in the center according to the setup on NitroHouse. What does running the lighter weight offer?

I guess you need to really run what your track calls for, the more traction you have the heavier fluid in the center, if you have a smooth, low dust, high traction track, then you want 7-10K.. High traction low dust but bumpy 5K, dusty bumpy 2K.. Our track is low traction, I run 2K...
Running 2K, my front tires lift a little reducing traction making the fronts spin, which makes acceleration a lot smoother...


\The center is the easiest to change so its good to try a few different weights..

Ive ran them on both tt and sc and never had an issue breaking rear arms, Ive broken a rear arm but I dont think the stock hub would have helped it...

Enough power, yes. Enough speed, no.
