Default RC8T Brushless Car Setup

Hi Guys,

Can anyone give me some base setup details for the RC8T now converted to brushless (Tekno V4 Kit) it is basically setup as per the RC-8T CE as a starting point, with the exception of:-

- 10k centre diff oil
- 5k rear diff oil
- 7k front diff oil
- Black Springs all round

Anyone have any tips on ride height, Camber, shock positions, bushings etc..

it will be ran on a fairly loose clay track if that helps..

Thanks...

On my RC8TCE coverted to "E" i run 7,10,5 diff setup i do remmend using at least 10k in the center diff with electric espially with a high torque/power motor .

I never messed with the shock springs there still stock on my so i dont know.

As for ride height i just set my "rear arms level" and my front arms a little above level but that does depend on the track surface.

Camber i use 1- at times or 2- on the rear end and 1- on the front at most.

My shock postions are stock as for bushings ive only changed my caster bushings to 14 degree insend of 16 degree.

That should handle good for the track condictions you race on.
