I will be setting my car up a bit similar to this for the indoor series im doing,hopefully it will help you.

You will need a low roll centre and medium(ish) suspension for rubber and a bit harder for foams usually.

I posted a TC (and also a 1/12th) summary sheet here. Feel free to print it out and use it as a reference. Just remember that the info I have there is for foam tire TC and not for rubber tire TC (primarily in reference to roll center changes).

1. Get an XRAY T2'007
2. Get an XRAY team drivers setup from IIC for the class your running
3. Use the darn stock XRAY shocks
4. Droop your shoulders a bit
5. Roll down the center of the straight
6. Rollout on everyone else from TQ



Whatup Reggie! See ya soon.

What Chassis are you rolling on.....the Clone? If so get with J/Mac...I believe he has his pretty dailed!

To find the rollout find who is running the the fast time at the track. Then set your pinion gear to the car depending on the size for your tire......

one of the easiest ways is (example) Mark a small dot (sharpie)on the tip of your motor armature (endbell) [note the car has to have foam tires tured or rubber, motor in place and a pinion gear on.]

Lay the car on a table on top of note book paper, Slide an index "card" behind the rear tire on the side of the motor. Make sure that the "card" is push right were the tire lift up from the paper(so there should be no space between the tire and paper. )

Now take a pencil mark the edge of the line where the index stick out (this is for measurement)......

Now slooowly roll the car from this position while watching the rotation of the dot on the armature, one complete circle is the result of the cars rollout!

Now slide the "card" under the tire from where the car has stopped(like in the begining), mark the line and measure the difference in MM or Inches.

Depending on your pinion and tires you can make adjustment to achieve a distance from here.

So if someone states they are running a 26mm rollout....this is how far their car rolled on one complete armature rotation. What you will have to do is maintain this rollout as your foam tires get smaller or change.

Keep in mind if someone is running a fan on their motor, you may have too run a smaller rollout. 26mm vs 27mm or smaller or vice versa.

This is for those without the time to do math.
But there is no exact answer for what rollout to use....
most start form .90-1.13 inches on stock motors roar to p2k2.

If you need more detail Reg LMK guy.

Peace,

Dude with all that money you got, you should be buying us all new rides!

Reg. I think "boy that hurt" what you were asking is what order do you go in to set up a car for carpet right? Since that with Foams everything changes from run to run, Right??

If so Caome on down to the Wood Sat. and I will show ya, its way to much to type, plus if you see it you will remember better.


Hey Terrell, Dude you are all over the place, hope you are finding all the tracks in each place!

But you can make you post about 20 sentences shorter and teh process about 10 mins easier......

Then you don't need a ruler, paper, card, pen and all of that....
