You guys sauce out to the orange? I was told when I started to just do the inside third and never bothered to see if that's what everybody does. I'll have to try that and then turn down the dual-rate so I can get more steering through setup and less through steering throw.

They probably told you that when you started to make the car easier to drive. Now that you're a more adept driver, go out to the orange. You'll probably have to turn the dual rate down at least 5%, probably more.

Hmm, cool, I'll try that with the tires. I noticed when I turned my dual-rate up, I got more steering, but my lap times went down. I've read you should use as little steering as possible to get around the track.

Yes but you should always give yourself a little extra than the minimum for race situations where you might need to take non-standard lines.

So you guys only glue your side-walls when the traction comes way up, like a big races?

Thanks i'm guessing the tamiya pistons would cause less pack but thought i'd confirm
Can anyone answer this one? I'd like to know as well. If the setup calls for say, 40wt rear and 60 wt front with 1.3 pistons...What would be the equivilent with 2 or 3 hole Tamiya pistons? Just curious

Yeah, I onyl glue mine if I have too. If the car starts lifting in the corners I'll glue the sidewalls of the tires. I'll be trying the tamiya 3 hole pistons this weekend... I'll let you guys know how it works out.

syndrome..your right...for club race i don t think you need to glue your side wall because the grip is not high like big race...at big race we start our tire around 56mm... so where i race (club race) i start my tire at 58 because i feel that at 56mm i don t have enought traction and with the 58 my car was better (faster lap time)....but want we have our big event...i true my tire down up to 56mm and put some glue on the sidewall.

Huh, cool, thanks for the info guys. I usually start at 58mm, but until recently I've been gluing because that's what everybody else does. It was killing the life of my tires though, because once they wore down to about 56mm the glue was catching on the carpet and tearing up the sidewalls. So I stopped gluing and found more grip. There are so many variables in this hobby when you get competitive, it's pretty overwhelming at times.

Rule of thumb: if you're having to glue your sidewalls for club racing, there's something wrong

Now, if I could just figure out why I'm faster with those silly GQ tires when everybody knows Jaco is the best. That's a good tip, no more crunchy sidewalls until I get good enough to compete at a big race, and confident nobody will beat me up for my asshattery on R/C Tech! :-D
