Randy B,

Only thing that will make your set up better is to slap on sme foamies and hit the rug~

I cannot give any advice for rubber tires as I have NEVER tried them. All you can do is evaluate how your car feels and if there are any points on the track you need to be faster or more comfortable and then make changes accordingly. As you know: the cars are never perfect and we have to adjust our driving to different conditions and tracks.

Just wheel that mug with a big smile as you pass the TC3's......

Default T1R Carpet set-up

Teacher,

This set-up feels like it is carrying very good corner speed and it also is really, really, really easy to drive tight and clean with. It also almost seems to slingshot like a 12th scale off the turns when driven right. Its nice!!!
Now-I had the WORST day f racing last night in years. I DNF'd all three heats AND the Main!!! As it turns out-I think I moved my servo off the mounts (AE mounts-not T1R (Long story-dont ask)) in the third lap of the first heat as car was pulling Right all night long after that on and off.

But-when it was right-it was fast. so as bad a night as I had-I still think this set-up is good.

ALL Shocks-40 wt AE oil. Violet Springs


Front

Foam tire shock tower

Shocks second hole in on tower. Outside on arm.

Camber link bottom middle hole.

3-degree C-hubs. Arms flat.

Adj. sway bar at 30*

Plaid tires Sauced 1/3rd.

Rear

Shocks all the way out on tower, middle on arm.

Camber link was inside on hub, down on Roll Center bridge.

3-degree antidive.

Purple TIres sauced full.

Droop-Front and rear had enough uptravel to raise car about 2mm from ride height.

Hope this helps anyone wanting to try a new set-up for Foam tires.

Ray

rayhuang, thanks for the setup. That's almost what I had, springs are a little different. Question, do you run the spring steel diffs or axles in your car??? If so why, are they lighter???

TEacher,

Also-this set-up is for a track without any sweepers per se. Its all faster-sharper corners needing a lot of turn in and transition speed. If your track is more wide-open-try 6-degree C-hubs (like if its pushing on corner exit) and also take out the rear antidive if its also squaring up too hard on exit. Its all a balancing game of getting the turn in you want and the on-power steering you need at the end.

I am not currently running the spring steel diffs. I was told its a good thing because the outdrives wont wear out. NO performance gain really-just durability.

No worries. The new IDR does make the gearing more friendlier as far as not using so large a pinion. The added performance gain is the belts don't turn at such a sharp angle inherently causing drag. The new pulleys allow the drive train to freely move more so than the stock pulleys. The belts are a welcomed addition as well. There is less material, and a bit softer yet keeping it's strength with it being kevlar reinforced. The only modification I had to do was rotate the eccentric bearing hubs causing the belt to be tightened.

Default T1R Electronics Space

How is electronics space on the T1R? Do you have to have smaller electronics to fit the chassis? (maybe owners could tell me what they use)

Thanks

Space is a little bit of an issue. But with today's micro electronics, it shouldn't be any problem. I run the Quantum Competition speedo with three caps, and an Airtronics micro receiver. I had to stand up the receiver, but other than that everything fit into the allotted space.

I personally run an airtronics 2 chanel recever and a GM V12 speedo and it fits perfectly. In the other hand I have a frined that runs an old LRP SR and he had to stand up his recever.

Hi Alan

The new pulleys are now in production. Depending on your distributor, some countries have them already. However, we here in the US do not yet have them. I don't know of any online stores stocking them just yet.
