The box stock kit setup should get you close. If you don't have one borrow or have another racer put it on a setup station. Get everything lined up and symmetrical.
Start with 6000 cst in the diff
Maybe 450~500 cst in the shocks

Small tight track? Maybe start your gearing at 4.4ish. See what the other guys run.

First time out on asphalt using as close to as I can get on kits suggested asphalt setup 17.5 stock touring car
Ran good, finished 5th out of 5, I was running with all the top guys (I was little out skilled)
I think I'm having a drag problem from the front belt tensioner (the bearing bolt is rubbing on the spur.

Having read through this thread, I am on the fence about getting this kit. Is it just the belt tension which is the main issue? Or are folk experiencing other issues?

I am planning to enter a National in the UK next year which is why I was looking to upgrade my current car.

I currently race a XI Sport NU in 13.5t blinky mainly outdoors and occasionally indoors which goes pretty well at my local outdoor club.

The only problem I've has is a slight bit of drag from the bolt rubbing on the spur gear from the belt tensioner mod. I either need a thinner head bolt, or I'm going to try using the steering post mod. At the track I race at, if you tag the side wall, doesn't mater what you drive, you will be replacing parts. I did pick up a spare set of arms just in case. I sanded and glued the sides of the chassis. I would buy this car again in a heart beat over the $ray.

1.Advance 20M steering post x 1 ( trim shorter 3mm)
2.M4x0.2 shim x 1
3. M4x 7x 2.5 bearing x 1
4. 3 x 8 set screw x 1

I really like the car for the money, no doubt
just get a pully for belt and pick up spare arms
CA glue the chassis edges

I love the aluminum rear hubs but let’s try something a little different for what Xray says gives more rear traction.

Also got my parts order in and the aluminum bones will help out the stock car greatly

Check your bearing thickness. Also depending on the spurs you will need to take out the spacers on the top shaft.

Not just Xray…..proven fact that the plastic hubs give more mechanical traction than the aluminum. Were you loose with the aluminum?

No not really. My main reason was the 15g weight savings for everything.

I got that pic the 3racing facebook page.
I'm using the 3x8x4 bearing with a 3mm button bolt, and a .02 shim.
Also running a panaracer-Xenon 96t spur

It might be the xenon gear being they are thicker than the axon. Try going to a 3x8x3 with the .2 shim.
