Hello

wish is a good starting setup for rubber tyres and low grip conditions with a LTC-R body??

The standard setup that comes in the manual is for high grip or to medium/low grip??

In my country the tracks have low grip.

thanks in advance.

Assuming you are running asphalt, you could start with E.J.s setup from last year's Reedy race. It was posted on page 43 of this thread.

If you are really on low grip conditions get a speed 6 or a madza 6 body that should help right away with gaining some grip.

I've run the 9550 in mine and currently run the KO 2413. Josh runs the KO 951 1/12 scale servo.

Mr. Furter, LOL

If you can I would suggest ordering all the Rubber springs. The Gamma springs.

I have used all of them at one time or another.
