Which motor?

At Leisure Hours with the full straight my fastest set-up was;

Revtech stock rotor, 4.79" roll-out, centered on the third timing dash.

For the car I would start with Andrews nats set-up from last year.

Definitely have a white center and blue sides handy....

Paragon and tweak, or Paragon and SPF 50 are good tire preps. 20+10-20 minutes rear and 10 + 10 minutes front. <---- Huge tuning aid and lots of personal preference here....

Wow this thread hasn't seen action in awhile...ok well lets bump this up!

I just ordered me a Gen Xi and plan to run it in 13.5 blinky at the IIC. Anyone have a good setup for this track? I imagine it will probably be somewhere between last year's 13.5 boost setup and 17.5 blinky setup.

Just wanted to let everyone know about our new 12th and 10th scale pan car tire truing adapter. This really helps get a true running tire by clamping the wheel the same way as when the wheel is attached to the hub with the mounting screws. Check it out at www.teamtamale.com.

I've been using these on my Gravity and Jaco tires since Carpet Nats in both WGT and 12th. Amazing quality, and a perfect cut. I didn't realize how much runout I had on my tires until I trued a set with Larry's pieces. I won't true without them now!

Put the chassis flat on a setup board and loosen the nuts on top of the center pivot. Make sure it is sitting flat and tighten them again. See the part on page two on "Setting the One-piece links". If that doesn't do it check the center pivot itself and make sure you haven't over tightened the screws that capture the pivot ball. The center pivot should pivot easily with very little slop in it.

Are you saying the servo is broken or that you are having a hard time getting it mounted correctly on the chassis?
