Guys i am going to be new to the whole 1/8th thing in the next few months. What setup differences are there to a touring car?

Reaction time will have to be a bit faster with 8th. Definately make sure clutch is setup properly or that will really affect your engine. Thrust bearings will go as fast or faster on so definately stock up. I personally tried the stock setup for the MRX4 and it worked great for me. Everything setup wise is important to sedan as is 8th.

Once you drive 8 scale you never drive 10 scale.

Slo-MTX4 I'll give you a setup for Brendale when you come down for the worlds. It will be a good starting point.

Naaaah! sedan seems for sissies, but is more demanding in terms of setup and control... think you're driving a car who is almost quick than a 1/8 but with almost 800grams less and with the half of contact patch with the ground and of course, without all the downforce that a Lola body provides.

So... Tourings aren't really for sissies.

Excellent Dan, Numbers for 1/8th have been fantastic at club days. There are alot of new facing and racing is starting to get better and better every week.


Touring Car is alot different to drive than 1/8th. Touring car is not for Sissy's.
1/8th Race car is easy to drive, just use book setup.
