Hope this gives you some ranges to try.

Thanks Mike. So, the car is soft standard then. I'll start by putting 30 in the spare side shock, and 40 in the spare centre shock.

Default Tuning

I have a few newbie questions for you experts out there regarding my 12R5.1 pan car. According to some of Team Associated's 12R5.1 setups on their website, they are adjusting Bump Steer and front and rear Droop.

Unfortunately, the setup sheets do not explain how to make these adjustments and I have no clue on how to make these adjustments.

First, what is Bump Steer and how do you apply this adjustment to the 12R5.1

Second, how do you adjust front and rear Droop and how do these adjustments affect the handling of the car.

Thanks, Chris

Speaking of droop I just replaced the springs on the front of my r5 and noticed I have a large amount of droop... couple mm... for 17.5 what should this be set to? Ive seen some add spacers to limit the droop...

Bump steer is the induced steer created when a wheel move upward or downward. Here you will have some more details.
You can adjust bump steer by adding or removing shims under the ball stud on the steering knuckles.

Droop is the amount of down travel the tires have when lifting up on the chassis. (Competition X)

You can have a summary here regarding 1/12 th scale car setups.

How does one go about measuring and adjusting Bump Steer and front/rear Droop on a 12R5.1 pan car? Thanks

Default Local On Road Support

Hey Team Associated,
me and some of the local onroad guys were wondering when any of you local guys were going be able to make it out to TQ RC Racing (carpet track) in Chino Ca. to race and support your local customers? The 1/12 scale class is growing and a lot of us are using the mighty 12R5.1

Thanks,
Chris

P.S. I don't work there, just a local weekend warrior. Thanks again

Chris,

Pres Ilog and myself are usually out at TQ and can help you with any questions you may have on your 12R5.

We usually pit in the bigger pit area section.

Can anyone recomend a good setup for racing a smooth asphalt track that is prepped with sugar water?

Also besides speed passion is there any other esc that supports 1s lipo without a booster??

Thanks for the help.

There is some speed controls from LRP, Novak (I think) and the prototype 1s controller from Viper RC that is coming out. The Viper is very cool, I have seen it in action and I current own the LRP SXX V2 which is a 1s without booster speedo.

Try this
Keven Hebert ROAR Paved Nats

LRP SXXX-SS (Stock Spec), or LRP SXXv2 (Mod)
both support 1s with internal booster, and use buttons for setup, no laptop required.

Despite having a rather large footprint, the new Novak 1s Kinetic still needs an external booster I believe.
