Default setup ideas...

i was curious about some setup... what oil are people using with the piston set. i used the single hole pistons, and wasnt sure where to start. ran last weekend, and all i got was off throttle spinout. here is the current setup:

front
4 mm height
1.5 camber
0 toe
olive spring (from d. juns setup)
type A tire

rear
4 mm height
2.0 camber
2 degree toe
black spring (also d. jun)
type A tire

Where are you running? Carpet? asphalt? I like to use a 2 hole piston setup. Really depends on where you are running and what tires you are allowed to use..

i didnt have the 2 holes for it... just got the 1's and 3's. what we run on is called Skid-Not, kinda like asphalt. and as far as tires, i am trying to get set up for TCS, so just the A's right now, but i have some B's coming in addition to the tuned kit... right now, im just running a slightly hopped up original version.

I mostly use either 60 weight Trinity oil with the 3 hole pistons on asphalt or 80 weight Trinity oil with the 3 hole piston on carpet. If the track is really bumpy, you want less dampening and if it's smooth, you want more dampening.

tamiyadriver, If you ever get the chance to use it, try out a CF chassis. IMO its about the biggest performance changer you can do to the car.. Cant wait untill Tamiya gets with the program and releases a TCS legal one...

I'll be there with a decent contingent from NorCal. I'd say we'll have 10 or 12 guys coming down. How's the bike?

Default Square F201 parts

Just browesing this www.allspeedhobbies.com and saw that they have Square parts in stock. The tires are pretty cool, 'cause they have Michelin printed on it.

My understanding is that a couple of companies are working on this. One of them is Serpent, if I'm correct.
Really?! Damn! I'll definitely be looking forward to THAT one. Do you have more info on this by any chance?
