I was wondering what the deal is with the heavy lube in the tubes for even in some of the asphalt setups. I can see for use in carpet racing, but asphalt is the bit of a shocker for me.

Thats actually pretty standard in all cars carlos. Asphalt usually uses a heavier dampening than higher bite to help to keep the car from doublesteering.

Let's see...

1a. The track dimensions, at SnowBirds, I think was 100x50
2a. 3.17" rollout
3a. Motor = Duo 17.5 (set to lowest timing setting). Servo = Futaba 9650. Speedo = Tekin RS set to Max timing boost on 1.89 software
4a. As for radio settings, not really sure what you're looking for here. I don't play with anything major on the radio. I know the Dual Rate was at 51% with 100% end points. Other than that, everything was standard. Radio is a DX3R.

I use the losi ball cups also but they work best on losi ball studs, Titanium ones are my favorite.

Johnny has the part number right on the ball cups. And you really should use the Losi titanium studs for them as with normal ball studs, they might be a little loose and cause excess slop.

And with the WGT setup, I'll work on that tonight. It's still in the trunk of my car.

Yeah the Losi ball cups I got from Larry were a bit loose on the regular nickel ball studs but really helped with steering throw with the laid down servo. I used the old o-ring trick and that really tightened it up nicely but I want to pick up some Losi ball studs so I don't have to.
