Default Setup for Asphalt tight slow and very bumby

Hey people half way the built of my TCXX.

Some issues

Front upper belt tensioner does not allign 100% with the belt has to modify it in order to get it aligned.

Was lucky enought that my TCXX came with an extra manual sheet with setup tips from the PROs and also a new setup by Andy Moore for asphalt.

Should i start with the stock setup found in the manual or the updated Andy one?

Thanks

you have to change the spur.

96 / 44 x 1.95 = 4.255555

what are you running 13.5 or 17.5

i put on Xenon white spur gear without a problem.
I am sure there are others..which will work.

i am pretty sure RW will work also.

yes.

don't assume that one setting will work for every track and every kind of layout.

you're best going with the spur gear that will give you the biggest range of gear combos - so while 96t might work, you might not be able to get a huge range of gearing...so you might have to consider going to smaller then 96t

honestly, a lot of times its trial and error - even after asking in a fourm..

check out here - http://www.gearchart.com/ - to build your own chart...try a couple of different pinions in the charts to see which gives you the biggest range...

Thanks for the above, i will try some combos going from 4.10 to 4.30

From what can you tell that you are running a good gear ratio on track?

A frined of mine told me to watch for motor temp.

Thanks
