The setup I ran in Snowbirds is the same setup I have run pretty much everywhere:

- .45 1/10th front springs, kingpin almost touching the rim
- Mid track width in front
- 3/4 degree of camber
- 10 degree blocks (adjust shims as needed. Start all back, if car diffs out, start putting them forward one at a time until it stops)
- White center spring, stock shock oil
-.45 side springs, just touching, tweak from there
- 7k in the tubes
-very little rear droop. just enough to tell the pod is drooping
-200mm rear track width
-Battery in line to the front
-Speed control mounted behind battery, receiver in front of the battery
-Protoform GT body (when using this body, I use the #1757 carbon bumper as it is a little longer and helps "fill up" the long nose of this body
- I use the GFRP body post set (available through CRC) in the rear with this body. I use it on all four corners with other bodies
- I only glue my front tires half way up. Doing this has no impact on handling but will allow some rubbing of the track barriers.
-7/8 front tire traction (don't be afraid to reduce this if it is too much for you.)

If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask

Hi Brian,

Congratulations for your win at the Snowbirds. You had me glued to the LiveRC coverage rooting you on.

How about a setup for the old CRC gray carpet? Only changes I have been using (since IIC) from what you have above are .50 front/side springs and a red center spring with more rear pod droop.

Do have a Team Scream motor on order...and patiently waiting for it. LOL

Many thanks.

Bill

I would run the same setup. The only change I would possibly make is running the battery transverse.

Yup. Already tried transverse on my second WGT-R car. Didn't work as well as in-line on gray carpet; so, am saving that one to try on asphalt (in spring).

Thanks Brian.

I just picked up a new kit. Excited to start putting it together and get it out. First car I've ever raced that wasn't offroad. Awesome looking car so far

Welcome.

Setup is much more important and sensitive in on-road than off-road. Make sure you have everything balanced and setup correctly before running it.

I guarantee you it will be a much more fun and better experience!

From what I've read in this thread on the previous pages, I'm going to build straight from the book to start. Looks like I'll just need some ballast to balance the car to offset my electronics? Is there any "balance station" or setup type plates you guys use while doing this or just some common sense and see how the car acts n the track?

Just try your best to put your electronics in line, keep the weight balanced.

Check earlier posts a page or two back on how to adjust tweak without any tools. It's the easiest and best method IMO. You just life the front, check the tire and adjust accordingly.

There are two small centered holes at the front and rear of the chassis that are for use with "balance buttons" to check the side-to-side weights. I need to check where I got those buttons. Have been using them to initially setup my on-road cars for over 10 years.

Edit: Ah ha! They are called IRS Balance Buttons #3020 which are still available from Muddslide Motorsports for $11.70. Note: These are far superior to the ones offered by Hudy...for more money.

Hopefully this answers your question. Enjoy the car.

Bill

You've already helped me indirectly Brian. Chris from our club picked your brain at the birds and brought your setup ideas for our track back with him and they worked perfectly. I posted what I have the WGT-R thread and the car is very driveable now. I just need to get more practice at certain aspects of braking and carrying more corner speed. I tend to drive too safely. I always finish, but hardly ever first.

I'm assuming the electronics section of the forum will be a bit wide on suggestions so I'll put it here.

What size, type wires are you running on 1S esc and 17.5 1S motor for this chassis?
I'm asking because the HW ESC OEM wires look a bit small in diameter and could possibly be an amperage restriction?

CRC Gen X 10 R/T
Hobby Wing V3.1 ESC
Trinity Monster 17.5 1S
1S lipo
