TRI39100 is the Horizon part number....I just checked and they have them in stock, so ANY hobbyshop with a Horizon account should be able to have it for you within a week....or you could probably order it directly from Horizon...

Well Todd. Don't be disgruntled by age. I'm 31 nearly 32. Obviously your not slow. And neither am I.

Hoping to get my first TC car next week, a XXX-S G+. I've been studying the setups you have had both here and on the Losi site. I'm sure I'll have more questions, though. Infact I have one now.

What do you think are the necessary tools you need to have when you first get one of these racing? I'm talking about setup boards, shock tools, good all around tires, etc. Do you have any beginning tips that will help a newbie to TC when it comes to adjusting and dialing in the car? I did get the XXX Main setup book.

I know a driving tip already. Stay off the boards.

wcoyote-I would recommend getting a ride height gauge, tweak board, camber gauge and setup board. Also a pair of calipers is nice to have to measure various things such as shocks. As for tires....I guess you will just have to check and see what they run at the track you will be racing at before you make your decision

Thanks Todd! I appreciate the advice.


On the tires thing, I was thinking more along practice lines. Not really racing lines. I should have been more specific on that. I was just wondering if the kit tires would be ok for smooth concrete or semi-rough asphalt. Or, if you could reccommend some compounds that would be better tuned for those conditions.
I plan on practicing in my large driveway or at some local parks.

wcoyote-Yea the kit tires will be fine to get you around. You can also check into some Sorex 36R tires with HPI green inserts...those will work well too. At the local park you might want to get some soda and spray it down so you have some grip.
