Korey,

Would you mind posting your setup for low/no traction?

Thanks for the setup info last week. The car was great... much improved.

Jamie

There's really no definitive choice for chassis and topdeck when running rubber tires on carpet, huh? I see winning setups from 2.4mm to 4.0mm on the chassis, and the topdecks are all over the place too. Does it just come down to tuning based on track conditions? With foam tires, we try to remove all the flex regardless of the track. Are you guys generally using chassis flex as a tuning aid when you're on rubber tires, or do you just stick with a certain combination and tune the rest of the car?

Use the 2.4mm chassis and 2.9mm topdeck fo carpet racing on rubber! This is the best combination!!!

Use the 2.4mm chassis and 2.9mm topdeck fo carpet racing on rubber! This is the best combination! And use the 3 C-Hubs! Makes the car easier to drive and still has good steering!
greetings Ollie

Yes do you adjust them to a specific length. On my Cyclone I run them at 66mm

I don't. I just make them long enough that I can set my droop where I want it and go from there....FWIW

I do make sure they are the same length though....but I never noticed what the length was. I use the Losi tool for this.......

Awesome! Glad that helped ya out. Ummmmmmm I'm still working on my current setup for low traction carpet. It's fast but really hard to drive at the moment... I'll be working on that today and friday. I'll be sure to post it ASAP once it's all figured out again .
