Default Carpet Setup TC5R

Check out the Associated web site with their team set ups. You may also want to look at the forum and see if anyone has posted one on there.

I would recommend you build the car to the stock setup in the manual. Then drive it and see what you want the car to do better. Than ask come back and ask some questions. The stock setups arent just thrown into the manuals because they suck.

It works just as well for 17.5 as it does for 13.5. Quite a few folks running stock at our place are using that setup with a few minor adjustments for their particular driving style.

That setup is the most consistent setup I've ran so far. Funny thing for me is it wasn't the fastest single lap(.2 slower than previous setup) but yielded my fastest qualifier this year. Maybe it was just track that day. It is very very stable and easy to drive
