Have you posted up this latest setup for rubber? I just switched to Xray and would like to try a few others out to get to know the car. I'm running 13.5 rubber (Sorex 28).

Hi Paul,

I ran your setup from the Snow Birds on my T2'009 for 17.5 rubber and 13.5 rubber, and I have to say, it was DIALED! I didn't actually change anything on the car, and I think I will leave it that way for a while. So far, that is the best setup I have run on my rubber car, by far.

So, now I am about to go outdoors and run some asphalt. Do you have a good setup you can recommend for 13.5 rubber asphalt tracks? I will most likely be racing at Speed World in Sacramento most of the time, so I need to find a good setup for that track....

Kendall, are you referring to the setup from over a year ago? ( http://forum.teamxray.com/xform/inde...6&setup=t2_008 ) Because I'm not seeing a newer Snowbirds setup from Paul on the xray site.

No, it is his new setup from the Jan 17, 2009 Snowbirds. It is on the XRAY forums, but for some reason only shows up in the 'Featured' setups section. Try it, the setup is killer!

Here is the link:

Paul, I tried your Novak race mod-foam setup today. It is marvelous, the car was a dream to drive in 13.5, and it was begging for more motor.

Can you post a link to that setup? I ran the one from the Snowbirds but was having trouble with the rear end dumping over and unloading the inside rear wheel. So I am wondering if the Novak setup is different. I think the front end needs to be stiffer on my setup to stop the rear end from dumping over.

From my experience, the FDR you run is entirely dependent on the brand of motor and ESC you are using, the timing you have on the motor and ESC as well as the winds of the motor. For instance the 'normal' FDR that most people would start with for 13.5 would be around 4.5 (assuming a basic fixed timing of around 24 degrees or so). However if you are running a new ESC like the Tekin (with 189 or later beta software) or the new LRP SPX ESC, those have timing boost modes built in that will completely overheat your motor at a 4.5 FDR timing.

I run the Tekin 13.5 setup with the 189 beta software, and my most current setup was to run an FDR of 5.8, ZERO timing on the motor can and full boost in the ESC. My other setup that I also like is full timing on the can of the motor, boost of about 10-12 and an FDR of around 6.15.

So as you can see, those FDR ratios are WAY out of the normal range that you would think to run in 13.5, and if you ran it with a normal ESC the car would be silly slow on the straight. But with the new ESC's that have a timing boost option, you can run a high FDR to give incredible punch out of the corners without losing any top end speed on the straight.

What ESC/Motor combo are you planning to run?
