Thanks JGH for the feedback. I was thinking TRF drivers are promoting Speed Passion. Surely they knew the pro con real well too.

JGH, I was thinking if Tamiya produces ALUMINIUM front knuckle for TAM51332. The ball connector which connects the knuckle does goes loose as time goes by due to mechanical steering movements.

I have to check the ball connector on TAM51332 time after time. At most time it get loose I just have to tighten a bit else replace the front knuckle. If not ball connector drops off along with shims & flanged tube. This is somehow quite annoying.

Is there any workaround on this...

Threadlock (Tamiya) or Loctit might help.

Don't mean to step in on Jilles, but I don't think that'll be a problem, the LTC-R does have slightly more aggressive steering, but I don't think it's enough to overheat anything(plus, it is also good for rear grip, it's still pretty well balanced, so I think you'll be ok, even in high temps). At least that's my take on it(& it's what I'm using right now & will take to the Novak Race next month)....

Hi, Jilles

Would you please share the experience of Ride tyre process mode in RCA? For example, which tire tweak to use, how long to wait the tire tweak on tyres, the tire warm time and so on. I want to learn how to tune the Ride tyre on the right way.

Thank you very much

Toh WL,
TRF drivers promote Tamiya but motors and batteries are free of choice.
I noticed the same that the steering linkage sometimes can get loose. When you use Titanium screws it works better then the standard steel screws. Loctite works always!

Kschu,
The LTC-R does heat up the tyre slightly more. But overall the LTC-R is still the faster body compare to Speed6.

srw_g,
Yesterday I ran the Ride tyre for the first time at RCA. I used Tyre Tweak for about 10min, works pretty well. No tyre warmer!

Kschu,

Track condition change too much during the day. Heavier shock oil works good, like 700W, HB blue in day time, silver or even gold in front in nighttime is fast. Till now it's hard to say as I use only one set of tyres the last two days so maybe with new tyres my car will be different again.
Are you attending the Futuba Cup this weekend?
Keep you posted.

thanks for sharing that you do on this tread

I have a few ? Regarding setup for titc

with average temps around the 29 / 30 mark
and temps in if feb set for 25 do you still use 700
weight oil or do you adjust spring rate

Do you know what motor will be used for 11.5 and if it is the
ride tyre that will be used

Thanks
