If your signature is correct, the setup from Gilles 416 is a great start point for Vegas. Probably won't want the HPI springs but opt back to the stock Tamiya units and maybe a little thicker shock oil. The tire warmers are debateable lots of the front runners don't use them, its more getting the timing of the sauce right than anything. Traction usually comes up pretty fast. Oh and maybe ride height will be reduced but normal 6/5 droop seems to work well.

If your running the T3'11 look up Paul Lemiux setup for Vegas last year it was pretty dialed, but most of the above still applies.

Question for the boosted TC drivers. How many sets of tires do you normally use at a race like the IIC?

i heard thru the grapevine that ROAR decided to change the voltage limit for electric paved nats (4.25 for 1s, 8.50 for 2s). what will the voltage limits be for iic. i know that this is a pretty technical question so far from the event, but for those of us that do not have the option of setting cutoff voltage in our chargers, it needs to be known. thanks
