I guess for those of us who race on carpet indoors only, we can't even fathom that gear ratio.

US seriously needs more tracks like Tamiya track, you guys in CA are spoiled.
5.76 is where I ended up gearing at the KO race. For 23T TCS Nationa...we were down to 5.6 something

Just wondering if anyone has tried a spool on carpet 19T and what your opinions are about using a spool on carpet and asphalt.

Ive tried it on carpet in stock and like it almost as much as a diff. A front diff is a little smoother than the spool going into a turn and mid corner, but the spool had a little more rip out of the corners. my lap times have become more consistant than with a one way.

Default Setup With Spool

I am very surprised with how quiet it has been considering Marcs win. I really want to try a spool and get my car setup with one and after marcs win i thought people would be talking alot. I run standard suspension with 1degree rear uprights. I tried one on carpet a couple weeks ago with T27 tires and it was really good. I just want it to be a bit more agreesive. I noticed marc was running no spacers under rear wishbones. This mean he was running evo blocks or that he had taken the 1mm out. This will make what difference?? Ive always found the rear to rotate more and make it more twitchy but people will no doubt disagree. Want a good high corner speed spool setup using old suspension, something like some of Tamiya team used at Reedy Race.

Thanks

Rob

DS, this is Rod...here are the links to a couple of the Tamiya America setups. One for spool and the other for one-way.

As for changes on the spool setup, I think I ended up using a C/A or D/A front suspension block setup to get more mid-exit steering. I also used yellow sway bars all the way around.

I hope this helps.

Anybody have a good setup for me to use on a high traction ozite track, long track, stock motor and foam tires??

Thanks!

Also if I put a spool for the mod class, did I need the center locked pulley???

Look a couple of pages back. I posted my carpet setup for a tight track....It should be pretty close.

With 28mm foams, it's hard, if not impossible to fit the tires and stay under 190mm. The front steering knuckle interferes with the tire near the steering tie rod....not a whole lot you can do about that.

Thanks,

Not the best pictures on earth (improper lighting) but they'll do until some sunshine hits us
