It should be open this Saturday and the weather will be awesome! The track will have lots of traction from last week! Sorex 36's should work great!

Anyone on here use the TiR spool in their 415 ? im having trouble getting my pulley on to it, looks as though the screw mounting holes have any been half threaded for some reason ???

Anyone in UK have a good set up for Stafford using a spool ?

Never ran a spool so what sort of setup changes might be needed ?

if you'r having probs with the spool you ought to send it back to them tir are top fellas they will sort it for you as setup goes not much diffrent to what you would run a one way car tends to be safer if it was me id run a one way (front only) at stafford it is low grip but you should be able to get the car settled and you will be awsome off the straight and the double apex in the mid section and also through the chicane just befoe the start straight.

Sorry for the delay, I know the Set Up didnt get on there yet. Its actually my fault cause i tried to fax it to them at Tamiya but i messed up. Give it a lil more time and it will be on there!

Tire Sauce is...Tire Tweak with tire warmers....for about 10 min. beofr you run.

I'm running a double one way with a M8 and GTX for electronics. What do you have your EPA set to on the controller and % brake set to on the ESC? I know this is a personal preference issue but I'm looking for ball park numbers. Thanks.

HELP
What type of drives do most of you guys run?

Front one-way?
Front diff?
Front spool?
The direct center drive or the one-way center drive?

If I run a Spool or Front Diff should I run the direct center drive?

Can I make a Front Diff out of the rear diff parts or only the Yokomo parts as listed in the Tamiya site?

Thank you, Thank you.

Can you post your set-up here in RC tech until Tamiya has the time to put it on a PDF file. Would be much appreciated!
Inquiring minds want to know!!!!

smaller pinion = better acceleration??
bigger pinion = more top speed??
