Would somebody be kind enough to post or email me a starting setup. Some pictures for electronics placement would be helpful too. [email protected]
I am running on newer CRC carpet, 75 X 36 fairly technical track
Jaco spec tires, Tekin RS Pro, Novak Ballistic 13.5, Novak booster, AMB up front and Sophia body if it matters.

All help would be appreciated, Thanks

with the McKune chasis you can mount pretty much all the electronics in the rear. on set up: are you asking "how to set up your car" with this new chasis? answer: set up would be the same but lighter so you may need to add weights

Default Mckune Design welcomes Mark Smyka

Team Tekin/ Team CRC driver Mark Smyka will now be running a Mckune Design 1s Lipo Chassis. He joins Dave Ehrlich and Andy Wells as another top driver to be running our conversion.


Cam,

I sent you an email yesterday with my setup. A great place to start for high bite tracks is Bryan Wynns IIC setup:

As far as mounting electronics, check out the pictures of Andy Wells' and Dave Ehrlich's cars in my first post. I will have some new pictures up soon.

Troy

Default Snowbirds Pics

GIJoe,

I am working on decals, hopefully I will have some within a few weeks. I also made up some custom pod rear plates with engraved and paint filled names on them. I made batches of Timezone and RC plus as well as I made up a bunch for top driver's of CRC cars at the Snowbirds. There is picture below showing the pod plate. If there is interest I will set up the website to accept custom orders.

Here is picture of Dave Ehrlich's car at the Snowbirds.



Pod plate with engraved and paint filled name.



Pictures are from www.rc50.com
