I run a 88 spur with 21.5 and silver can. Both cars work well for me with this set up. Just change the pinion to suit the motor.

My go to gears are 93 Tamiya spur (bearing is nice) and 26 pinion.

Throw em on, run it, see how that motor (silver can) likes it and temp it.

I adjust from there, from 23 to 29 (watch it on this one).

I have a couple of questions regarding the Tamiya rubber tires for the upcoming Memphis TCS race. I'm planning on getting a set of the soft rears and kit front, I'm wondering if this would be the popular choice for a track that will be around 100+ deg. on race day? Will I be able to stretch 1 set of tires for the entire raceday, or should I bring more?

Thanks in advanced for the answers. I'm trying to do this as cheap as possible. I don't run as much onroad as I would like because we don't have a track here, so this race is pretty much a one off for me this year.

I run the snot out of my soft rears and medium fronts.
They will grain on the surface but work fine.
Some prefer to run freshies every couple runs but I have found them to be twitchy when brand new, little too much grip at first.

So I would say it's safe to get several runs out of a set of tires.

I have run a few practices, qualifiers and main on one set.

The "Death Groove" will let you know when the tires are done.

Hey all, quick question if I may-
Is it possible to swap bodies between the F60 front wings and Mclaren? IE can you put the F60 body on and then swap with the mclaren body without changing wings. I was wondering if the nose body post was in the same location basically for both bodies....

i have been using what others have suggested 20wt oil 3 hole pistons. I run on a outside track and have tested on numerous surfaces and it has been fine. although personally i have feel that the white spring is a little hard and i am waiting for my red one to arrive.

Dude... I LOVE your video's... I can't wait to see what you come up with... every time I see your rally vids I want to build up a rally car ...

I've been to Brno 4 times, but haven't been there in 3 years... If I do make it back I will have a rally car with me
