I emailed tigermoth last week after taking pchroma24's car off his hands but haven't had a reply yet, are they on holiday?

Does anyone have a good base setting for low-med bite carpet with foams and rubber tires?

They can be a little slow depending on what your email was about but they usually answer,..

try the standard kit setup... after all the car as developed initially for carpet racing

Cheers Shadow, we don't have the grip required at our club for the kit setup. Is the spring/oil combination comparable to regular upright TC's?

I'm right assuming the set screw in each ballend/wishbone should adjust the ballend position when adjusted? The ballends don't move on my car, just the setscrew moves between the two parts, to adjust the length you have to unscrew the ballend and turn it by hand.

The lay-down set-up is firmer than using the same combo on a regular TC... I never used anything harder than Tamiya Blue springs on mine... and usually use yellow and red... if grip is really THAT low soften the car up and look at gripper tires... I recently used mine for the first time on carpet (on foams) and if I was running there regularly I'd probably go for a hardness at least 5 lower than what most were running.

The setscrew is not like a turn buckle on a normal TC... its only threaded in one direction whereas turnbuckles are threaded in both directions... the only way to adjust settings is how you described... it seems a little cumbersome at first but it means the setup is VERY stable and doesn't need a lot of checking/re-setting over the course of a race day... its also very close to 0.5deg for every half turn

Thanks for the info Shadow, much appreciated. If you have just run the car on carpet with foams I assume you will have a base setting for tarmac with rubber tires, could you share it?

Never seen anyone put sway bars on them... and practically there is no way of attaching them...

try softening the rear... also check all your settings and ball-ends... one thing a Tigermoth is not short of is grip

as for the bumper the only solutions are - 1) buy heaps of original ones as the plastic they are made of is rubbish, or (2) make your own bumper out of something else

All right, i will try the box settings again.Do you use the original bumper?or you´ve made your own?maybe we can use a bumper of another brand?

In another post you´ve said that you use tamiya blue springs how many pounds have these?
Thank you!

I have sent an email to Chris and this is his answer:

My first question is what does the material look like? Is it an opaque dark grey or a slightly transparent smoky black. The new bumpers are much better and are molded in a material that you can see light through if you hold it up to the light. This will tell you if the parts you have are the old or new generation
Mine are dark opaque.

So,the have improved the bumpers.

I am going to order a couple and lets see...

I use the orginal ones but I bought a whole heap when I started breaking them... nothing else fits that I've seen as the lay down suspension mounts onto the bumper

As for the springs I have no idea of the top of my head... but a quick search online should provide the answer


I didn't know they have made new bumpers from new plastic... but if its the same as the new pulleys then I am not impressed...
