Default TAMIYA TRF 101W

Just got the new kit and lookin to start some... discussion.

Gonna be trying to set it up for carpet with no tire doping allowed but will be practicing with no sauce on carpet where sauce is allowed.
Gonna be interesting to start.

Ideas?

I spoke with this old Japanese guy, Masami I think... He said gyros are good but make the car push too much.

Japan is running foam only. I haven't seen rubber tires over here.

Correct
Fat rear tires is the difference in the rear
I don't believe the axle width is different

Cuda, find out what type of battery you're running, LiFE, NiCad, size, etc. Tamiya only allows certain types for their Worlds event. You should talk to Sean Wu, Bensi, Solomon, Rod, all of those guys to see what they used and how they conditioned them ahead of time. Just my 2 cents.

I think last year it was

Life battery, handout
Spec motor handout, some sort of buchi
Kit foam tires handout, full size, no sauce, which remained in tech

Fred should have the dialed setup for you

Handout is good, no buy

Now the secret is battery conditioning from what I hear.

New car manual photo shows 103 type foamies, little rims big sidewall fatties for rear and 104 type foamies front, big rims smaller sidewall and another switch is along with the 200mm width it's F104 wheelbase.
Long and wide.
Sounds fast (with correct horsepower of course).
