Heh guys. I have the high speed gear set, and want to know what the stock gears are and what most of you run for tight, slow tracks.

In almost all cases, 5.88 is the way to go (52/23). Even on tight tracks that can be the go most of the time, unless its UBER tight!!

Hi all, I have two questions -

1) To the person selling decals on this forum, what is the website where you order? I think you had the Lucky Strike and/or West decals. . .
2) What's the feedback of using this chassis?

Thanks!

Default Set-ups?

Whats a good base set-up for a large medium grip tack? It has a good mix of slow and high speed turns. It's located in Madison Alabama, so the temp gets pretty hot. I'm running Type-A tires and the car has all of the tamiya hop-ups. I drove the car today and ended up with way to much steering. Saying it was all over the place is an understatent. right now it's set at:

F toe - +1deg.
Rtoe - 0deg
2 deg. camber all around
60 wht. Ass. oils in all 4 shocks
Olive springs in front
gold in rear

Any help you can give me would be appreciated.

Right off the bat, I'd say add some rear toe...I think the kit settings is around 2 degs negative...

I might also go a little softer on the oil...60 seems a bit much

So with the kit tires and the 55/20 gear set-the rollout is about 1.07" or 27mm.

And with the 52/23 gear set and kit tires-the rollout is 1.31" or 33mm???

I am running the 52/23 set-no wonder my motors are 210 degrees after only two minutes on the indoor track.

I just ordered 2 of the Tuned Chassis kits (one to run and one to put away). I am looking forward to running this car. I have wanted one for a long time!
They look like they are a blast!!

koabich-someone on here told me that once yu figure them out they are a blast to drive and he was 100% spot on. YOu do odd things to tune them-but they are fast and they handle pretty darn well. And they appear to be very durable as well. I thought for sure the front wing would be torn off by now-but after a few weeks-it still looks 100% mint.

My set-up is based on what I read on the Tamiya TCS articles page. An article written by one of the RCtechers Neil Rabara. I am running type A Tamiya tires because I bought the car to do the TCS race this weekend. But I think Pit Schimizus are the hot ticket. I'll shoot you a set-up next week after the race. I dont want to now because I may get down there and find out my set-up sucks and come home with a much better one.
