1) is the exchange for accel/top end notiable? The track i run it is quite funny, has a good complex infield but also a huge straight and sweeper. im currently gearing down at 5.3 with my reedy silver.

2) Well i guess i make alot more time on the infield then on the straight so therefore ill stay with 2 clicks front and rear, sound right?

3) Racing indoors David Spash told the Ex-user of my car to remove the shims under the rear suspension blocks like in kit setting, now that im back outdoor i think im going to put them back in , what effect does it actually have? raised roll centre? less rear grip , more speed stop tires over heating at rear?

Got Ben C's setup which i would like to try out at bedworth only time will tell cant wait to race this.

4) I was reading on the belt trick forum that the snip everyother tooth trick makes your car actually noticbly faster. not only more efficient or free'er but Faster, true?

Thanks

Hey Rod ... Hit me up...

I have a really good one that works well for a med/long sized track with a tight infield...Hi Grip surface too

BTW do you have a editable 415 setup sheet you can hook me up with

Here's my oneway setup for Stock that I used today. Worked pretty good for our new track layout. The Echo low friction belts held up pretty good with 1 click rear and 0 clicks up front. Good top end and acceleration. I think I'll run them like this for now on.

It's not editable. Actually I open up the PDF blank setup sheet (from Tamiya Japan site) in Photoshop. Do my fonts ( the circles are O's). Flatten the image. Shrink it down to 495x700. And save as a GIF file. Simple and easy.

Default Diffs

Anyone in the CT area that races at RC Madness have a TRF 415 and has the DIff out? I am trying to see if a TRF 415 diff/oneway/spool will fit on my MY02 or if the one way on mine is interchangable with the trf..

Measuring the Spool from SpeedtechRC... the distance between where the left bearing and right bearing sits up against would be 20.70mm for the 415. So if you measured the distance from the bearing on left bulkhead and right bulhead from the insides... and if it's equal to... or greater than 20.70mm... the 415 should fit as long as your MY02 drive shafts can reach the outdrives... I dunno.. I'm sleepy... if you can understand what I just typed.. hehe..

What up Dave? I think I got a setup going after yesterday's practice. There are a few more things I want to try but for the most part, the car carries more speed in the corners than I am comfortable with (is that possible). It must have been from all the spool driving the past few months. The funny thing is is that I put a 19T in for the last couple of runs and my car went to crap because the motor has more inherent drag brake than a mod. Lesson learned...and overall, I'm headed in the right direction.

As for editable setup sheets, I just opened a blank gif setup in photoshop and went to town. Also, if you have acrobat (not the reader version), you can add your own stuff to it. I don't know of an editable sheet online though but when I applied for a travel visa last year, it had an editable (fill in the blank) application in acrobat that was really cool. Someone should make something like that

It must feel like you have went from a Hummer to a Suzuki Samurai after the Reedy Race if your running 19T

anyways PM me or post what you have found

Dave, I'll post after next weekend's practice. I want to make sure that this setup is "repeatable" and then move forward from there

It was more like going from a Ferrari F2004 to a Yugo hehe okay, maybe not that bad but it definately changed the handling a bit.
