Thanks!! After reading about dangers of over heating i didn't want to go in with some random setup. 88/43 is first on the list. Anyone else with an opinion feel free. Who made the spur gear on the car you just sold?

I'm going to run a RDX outdoors on asphalt and I need a current set-up that's good on med. bite. Always wanted to try one of these and a friend of mine ran his last week and it was simply dialed with a spool set-up.( Right Barry Straz)

Sorry for an old question here but any help would be HIGHLY appreciated.

Thanks all!!

What class are you running in? Stock, 19T, Mod, brushed/brushless?

I have a 19T asphalt setup posted on my clubs website: http://www.thegroundpounders.com/Fil..._ecottrell.pdf

The car handled well but the driving was another story.

Alex- I just put on Jeff Brown's asphalt set up for the car pretty much. Basically just try regular roll centers all around in the low position, tamiya 3 hole pistons with 30 weight AE oil, 22 or 20 pound front springs (1 from out on the tower, in on the arm) and 17 or 19 rears 1 front full out on the new arm and 1 front full out on the tower. I havent really played with link position, but try 1 from full short on the bottom or top (i never really played with it). and then I like the way a parma type M felt on that car. And it was with a spool, i think a one way might steer too much off power. I will let you know more after reedy when I have a better idea what everything does on asphalt, lol!

The new phi set ups transfer pretty much perfectly though, its just easy to adjust.

Default Calling Jeff Brown...

Hi Jeff,

Last week, I put 98% of the setup you used at last years Asphalt Nationals at Speedworld back on my RDX. It also has the 21#/17# springs as you told me about shortly after the Nats. This setup is absolutely killer at our NorCal Hobbies.

The ONLY variance is that I am achieving the 2 degrees of rear toe-in via inside spacers as opposed to getting it via 2 degree hubs. I do have 2 degree rear hubs in my inventory. Should I switch them over?

Any other changes you can recommend would be appreciated.

FYI...Yes, I have a Phi on order.

Thanks.

Nice. Glad the setup is working. I wouldn't change the rear hubs if the car is working good for you. You running the 0 deg blocks as well? I may have to put that setup back on the car. haha.

Yep! The O deg blocks appear to be a most important part of the setup for me. Jim Rose, a local hot dog, saw that I was close to your setup and said to copy. He uses it; abet, with 2 deg blocks and he flies.

Oops! Forgot to say that I have center steering. I didn't go back to the old style steering for the sake of the setup.

Excellent asphalt setup...Puts me where I want to be on the track with tons of steering. Also saves tires over my previous setup.
