Default Wiring Question...Also...TC4 Carpet setups

Wire question...

Touring car
6-Cell GP3300 / GP3700
Novak GTX

#1 Running either stock or 19T on carpet, is it ok to wire up with 14g wire? Or should I still use 12g?

Also

#2 Does anyone know where I could find some good TC4 (tub-chassis) carpet setups to begin with?

Thanks in advance.

Default set ups

Please check out the link below. It is right from the Team Associated web site. They have some great base set ups as well as some actual racers set ups from various races.

Good luck and go FAST!!

14 AWG will work fine for those motors.

Agreed, I've been using the stock wire that came installed on the last 2 ESC's I've bought(a GT7 & a GTX now), & it's worked just fine(& both come with 14AWG).....

Good to know folks....Just wanted to make sure 14g would handle all the amps I'm gonna throw at it. I figured it would like it has for me before, however that was before super-batteries and the like.

I'll pass on to you soviet what has been good to me. This set up is designed for a dual deck CF chassis, but it works great for me. Solved a lot of problems I was having at the time it was given to me. The only thing you can disregard is the bit about the steering rack being mounted backwards. Like I said, it was for a non-tub chassis. Let me know if I can help.

I guess I better give props to Bob Barry for sending me the set up in the first place.

Andrew

First thing I would do is if you are planning on running the tub chassis, go to Associated's site and download all of the setups that are on there for snowbirds and cleveland. Try each one if you can and see which fits your driving style. when your ready to step up call Jason at BMI and order your conversion kit double deck chassis, batteries moved forward and in servo and motor slightly forward, its just sick. www.bmiracing.com

I had a BMI TC3. Nice fit and finish. I'm actually determined to show the world that the "tubby" TC4 can hang with all the uber-cars that people think they just HAVE to have these days.

I'm kinda on a mission. Plus I asked for help looking for base-setups 'cause I've been very busy.

I figure if I did eventually upgrade the car, I'd just get the Team --> Factory Team conversion kit.

Be sure to keep us updated Soviet. I just gave up on my Tubby tc4 for the likes of an fk05. I could never seem to get the car to handle the same. I was spending all my time tracing down and fixing problems. I am still open to running it though. I guess I am one of those people you referred to. Baaaa Baaa . . .Sheople. lol
