Default which is better for carpet

I am either going to buy a tc3 or a t1. Cant decide yet. Which car do you guys think performs better on carpet. I could use any suggjestions that you guys have for me. I am a beginner and the shop owner tells me that the t1 is very hard to set up. Is that true?

T1 by far performs the best, I hear complaints of the TC3 pushing a bit when entering the turns. The T1 knifes its way through the turns. I had a great time last Sunday on carpet and I am leaving now to race tonight and tomorrow night on carpet.

Have a great weekend EV1!

Default set up

Is the t1 very hard to set up and adjust. Even though I am a beginner? The shop keeper tells me so. But is it?

I raced a tc3 for some time, and it worked very well for me on carpet. It didn`t push when I drove it, but that depends much on setup and tires. The T1 is the easiest of the two to adjust, so if you know the basics in setting a car up, it will be the easiest to set up. It also comes with a very good set-up guide, which explains what the changes on the setup does with the handling. I haven`t tried my T1 yet, but the Tc3 has worked very good for me. If you know you are going to race and drive the car much on a track, I would get the T1, but if you are going to run in your driveway and similar I would get the TC3.. My opinion though

Default is it difficult to set up?

I am a beginner and i am leaning towards either the t1 or tc3. But it also seems to be good performance wise. I will be racing on carpet. I am going to start in stock and then later move up to modified when i get better. Have any sugjestions or comments? Even though it has a booklet does that tell you how every adjustment affects your car? The shop keeper told me that even more experienced people had difficulties setting it up. I just think that it cant be that hard. Am I right?

Also what do you think is the best stock motor for the t1 on carpet. Or just the best stock motor.

The booklet explains mostly everything. I don`t know anything about the car that the booklet doesn`t explain. If there are more Xray racers at your track, they can also help you with the set-up or anything else you can need help with.

any of the stock motors on the market will do fine. I`ve been running a GM pinnacle motor against tuned p2k2`s and that has worked just fine. the p2k and pinnacle are "torque" motors, the mvp and p2k2 are medium torq/rpm, and the rage and gm3 are rpm motors. I am not sure about the motors from peak and orion. Check the stock-motor forum!

The setup book is pretty thorough, but it can be a bit unclear in places. I wouldn't say it's a hard car to set up, but it's not as simple as some cars on the market. If you've got a head for chassis tuning you'll be okay.

If I were buying an Xray now, I'd also buy the following:

1 set each of Serpent white, yellow, and red springs. Maybe a set of blue springs too.

New servo saver (has extra tie-rod locations for ackerman adjustment)

1 set of the keyed shock shafts and pistons.

Other than that, my car is pretty much stock. Oh, I do have the front bumper that's cut out for the transponder, but I wouldn't call it essential.
