Jilles,

Used your setup from latest ETS round, car was awesome on it. Only thing I changed was 3mm steering spacer and kept C blocks in the front, thank you again for posting

Am trying the Ride Gt300 Body, have you used this body? I used the HD Rip Wing that came with the body and car was very very tail happy off power, switched to Protoform wing and was much better. Do you have any tips for HD Rip Wing wing?

Question on non boosted 17.5 racing.

In a post quite a few pages back a question was brought up about changes made for stock racing. You said you would go to stiffer springs and about it. Could you explain what the stiffer springs will do to the car? And would you also want to start with a little thicker oil? What springs should I switch to. Currently running blue and yellow Tamiya springs with 425 weight oil.

I know there is a chart but can't remember where it's at for all the spring rates of all the manufacturers. Anyone have this?

what the difference between spec r and the tamiya gear diff??
Differences are: internal gear are different, spec-r is 10/22T , Tamiya 12,20
I think the volume of Tamiya geardiff is slightly more.

and what is the difference of running the camber link at #1 instead of #3 on the bulkhead? most setup i see use the #3 spot.

thanks
I mean the 2 orings I use inside the shock in the bottom. Camberlink #1 has more camber change, therefor more traction but less cornerspeed. Normally I use #1 for medium traction and in modified. #3 I use for high traction, big track and stock racing.

For medium traction with the cut motormount the car feels like it has more traction and is more consistant. Looking back to the Snowbirds race, high traction carpet track my car was awesome with the standard one-piece motormount.

Any idea what weight fluid? and does the new gear diff leak with 1000w in it?
Thanks
I'm not sure what oil Tamiya recommend for the geardiff but all teamdrivers are using oil from 700 - 2000 W

I have been using 300.000W and 500.000W which both work great. You can also try cleaning gum in the geardiff, disadvantage is that the gear wear more fast.

Thanks~
I'm not familiar with 17.5T but I quess most racers gear them around 3.5 - 4.0 . I know from my friends 416, he uses spurgear 87 and pinion 44 to be around 4.0 gearing.

Thanks great! I recommend to use the lip wing for the Ride body. The Ride body has a lot of steering so the lip wing will give more stable rearend.

With stiffer spring I recommend, HPI gold and Pink. Also shock oil around 600 should work good. I'm not sure about the spring rates.

Default How do you proceed on a new track?

Hi Jilles,

could you please tell me, how do you proceed with your set up on a new track? What are your steps to find the hopefully perfect set up? I mean do you start for example with the back of the car or..? There is not much time on a weekend to test all the possiblitys on the car. And do you have a basic set up you start with?

Thanks in advance for your feedback!

Before I go to a race, I start with a set-up from the previous race. Most set-ups are very close, only small details. First thing I always try is tyre additives. During qualification I try small things like camberlink shims, wheelbase, different shock oil. Ofcourse I always check other racers and their set-ups to learn from this. Always check the condition of the track as it is difficult to say something works or not when the track conditions are changing all the time.

I haven't got a picture. I can advice to use small balls of gum and push it with a screwdriver anywhere it can go inside the geardiff. I normally use a little bit of shockoil with it. Hope this helps

Hi Jillies,

Do you play around with shock pistons? Or do you just use the original ones that comes with the kit?

Do you think the gear diff would be good to run in 17.5 non boosted racing? Or would the ball diff be fine? What does the gear diff do that makes it so much better than the ball diff?

Jilles,

When using HPI springs (I've finally got the #6543 Silvers, after them being out of stock for awhile here in the US), what spring retainers do you use? I noticed that they're a bit larger in diameter than the Tamiya springs and find that they just slide around on the Tamiya spring retainers. Or should I not worry about this?

(My apologies in advance if this has been answered...I couldn't seem to find an answer during a search.)

Thanks again.

I saw on the 417 thread (realized I should have looked in there too) that people have been mentioning the Roche retainers. Do those fit as well as the TRF ones? They seem to be much more economical to get.
