The second time I went to race my car broke so I left without racing. I've been learning more about rc racing and when I ask people at my track they help me out. Most of you guy seem like you now alot, so I ask because I thought people were nice enough to help me out, not just complain about were I posted.
AJA, not busting on you but there is a simple answer...it's called a search function.. Like google or yahoo... Try and use it here and other forums. I've used it here and got the answers real fast ( well, you are on a modem then it may take a while )
As a moderator ( or GODerator as some people like to call me) it's a real *(%^&*(*&^% space waster when simular/same questions are asked every other week because people don't use the search function that forums have available.
OK now that my GODerator hat is off..
Motor? gearing? batteries? servo? radio? race surface? size?
All play in the setup setup? ( is that correct, setup/setup?)

On this same note....
There is no such thing as a stupid question, just stupid answers!!

Respect is earned not granted, I know some young guns that know more about RC cars than old-timers. This hobby has leaped forward in the last 2 years more than it has the previous 10 years. Look at the electric side of RC... Simply amazing....
If you ever have the chance look at some old RC mags from 1990...

Let me ask the question that I asked at the beginning of this thread again.What setup should I use for a tc3? I race on tile with vht or soda on it, I have Jaco double purples in front and purples in back, I also use paragon traction compound.
I have a stock racer kit.
I currently have:
-2 degrees camber all around
3 degrees toe-in on the rear
0 degrees toe-in/out on the front
2 degrees caster on the front
2 degrees kickup on the front
5mm ride height in front
5mm ride height in rear
2 degees anti-squat in rear
medium wheelbase
40 wt shock oil in rear
60 wt shock oil in front
droop gauge #6 in front
droop gauge #4 in rear
gold springs in front
silver springs in rear
top outermost top shock location all around
bottom innermost camber link location all around
and the battery pack in front.

Is that a decent question?

Racing on tile? I've never heard of that.
What size is the track? if it small track with lots of turns then you want a softer front for quicker steering and a softer rear will make ir easier to drive and better traction.The lower the car the better. Less caster would mean tighter turns.

Infact get an extra rear shock mount and replace the one in the front. Much better....

What shock oil weight sould I out in my shocks. I'm not shure what size track it is, but my lap times are 18 sec. and mod lap times are 13 sec. There are 11 turns, most just 45 degree turns.
I would guess that the track is 25x55 feet.
