I would hold off from making any major changes to the car. Run is as you would normaly, and see how it handles. Just take out as much steering as you're comfortable with then set camber and toe to "0".

I have one 10R5 that I will be running with the starndard layout. I should be recieving a 2nd 10R5 on Friday. This is the one I was thinking about experimenting with. Our local track changes back and forth from a road course to oval course which is why I was considering an oval setup for the 2nd car.

I really prefer running the road course, but unfortunately it is only setup once a week and the oval course is setup the remainder of the week. I am not really interested in oval, but figured I should give it a shot since I have never tried it.... I was just looking for a cheap way to try it without replacing/buying another chassis.

Right now I'm running a 20 spring on the left front and 22 on the right front. Double golds on the rear sides and a blue center spring. 5.4mm preload on right and 2.7mm preload on left. Center spring is set to 2.7mm as well.

Hey, I found something that might catch your eye. 10R5 not oval

hey all.. i just raced my 10R5 this past weekend, and it was doing well, but then i started to learn more about it, and my ride height was well off... so now im running all 3 of the kit washers on each screw in the front to lower it as much as possible... and i still can go lower...

so my question is, would it hurt to get another package of those washers and just use alittle longer screw?

reason is, im using full tires (not trued) and i dont have a tire truer yet, and probably wont until spring (taxtime)

im probably sitting at 6 or 7mm ride height in the front, and of course for WGT min. is 4mm...

thanks for any and all info.

That's what I do. I just run them the way they come, and adjust the ride height to the taller tiers.

Anybody have a rollout spur/pinion set-up for a track with an 80 foot straight?

Also, anybody have any Tekin setups fo WGT running 1-cell? I run TC and we are going to start a class at my local track?

It only seems like the natural move. It will probably just have the updated rear pod. Hopefully it has different battery mounting options to be more pro 10 friendly.

Hi there, just got this reply from the AE customer service about the discontinuation of the RC10R5:

"There are no plans to replace the 10R5 with a new kit. I am not sure why it was discontinued either. I believe we will still make parts just not the complete kit anymore."

I'm really shocked about this...
...very bad news just before christmas...
