Not bad at all, but if you put ceramic bearings in there, the wheels will spin forever, and you'll have stop the wheels from spinning before you run out of film ! The tires would have rolled back a little before stopping with ceramics: the best way to tell if the drivetrain is completely free .....

Mine arrived today so time to get on with the build.

So any of you guys racing the car on carpet with rubber ?

I'll be on a high grip, primafelt type carpet with sorex 28R JB.

If anyone whos already build and raced the car has any build tips or good set up info to use as a starting point for those type of conditions then please let me know.

Cheers

Also just wondered what config of servo and motor position you have all gone for and what seems to provide the best balance so far ??

Denis, what changes do you think would be required from your high traction set up when racing Stock 13.5 instead of the modified it looks like you were using ??

Many thanks

Nothing changes. One Russian driver use my setup in 13.5 and 17.5 TС classes. But sometimes we change here spring tension (for the stock - softer on 1mm front and rear).
