Do you have a set up sheet completed that fits this criteria that you could post up?

Your advice would be much appreciated.............
Go back one page I'm sure the snowbirds setup will suit

Default Tire treatment for RCA

Any advice on the Sweep tires to be used for the TITC at RC Addict?
What traction compound to apply? Do you tweaked the tires?

Do you prep your tires differently when the track is at its hottest?

Thank you.

Jilles,

What profile on the ESC are you using for your low turn motors with Lipo batteries?

Thanks.

Jilles in your Sbirds setup you used 2 o-rings on the shocks. What does this mean exactly?

Vitomon,

If you look at previous set-up sheets of most of the TRF drivers you will see anti-dive is used most of the time. It gives more aggressive steering into the corner.

Mark,

I use a Nosram Pearl speedo for Modified. Most of the time I use a 4.5T motor outdoors and 5.5T indoors
416X has more rear traction then 416We.

Orzel24,

What you mean by steering brace?
6-6 downstop gave little more reaction in slow chicane.

Karl,

The Evo arm are the short arm,now they come standard in the 416X, 416/416WE had longer arms.

Dameetz,

My set-up for Mod at RC Addict is almost identical to the Worlds 2008 set-up.
I use LTC-R body instead of Speed6.

Jonest,

Thanks Ride Cup was really cool. Great battle between Surikarn, Hara and me. Pretty cool to race against these World Champs!

scarecrow,

Thanks, you are welcome. Snowbirds was great and I really enjoyed it.
The Oval was awesome, especially the 600 laps enduro was really cool and intense. Hope to see you all next year!!

[email protected],

Check: www.rcblood.com
The control tyre for Modified will be Much More and not Sweep.
Sweep and Much More are two complete different tyres.
I prepare them with FX2, this additive works best.

Jonest,

My latest set-up for Mod/Lipo at RC Addict is as follow:

- Motor Orion 4.5T 2mm timing standard rotor
- ESC Nosram Pearl 1,2,1,1
- Gear 105/28 = 7.7

Apex,

Two o-ring gives little more dampening, little more traction.

Dsyed1,

Don't know about short/long Tamiya springs. Maybe it has something to do with Mini spring/TC spring?

See you all soon at TITC!!

Jilles

JGH,

Did you lighten or remove any parts from your MO5 for the Ride Cup race? I see in the pictures, lots of highly modified mini chassis's. Do you have a good starting point for the mini springs?

Thank you,

Regards,

calvin.

So instead of using 1 you use 2 o-rings and nothing else changes in the shock, right?
