Should be. I believe the Parma R12 is EFRA legal as well.

The body shown in Garen's car picture is made by Xceed. It's called the Zytec. It's pricey but from what I have seen handles quite good.

Still too new of a car to have setups available. I am going to say that once the Byron's challenge is over, Garen and Arno will have some really good setups to share.

Wish I could have helped, but my missing parts have not arrived yet. I missed the Tornado Fuel challenge at 301 Raceway.

So was the standard setup a good or bad baseline to start off from?

I am anxious to see what setup you used! What kind of surface did you have at your track? Was it High bite? Medium? Low?

Harry,
Standard setup is a very good baseline start, the only things that I changed were, I took the spacers out from the bottom of the front upper arm mounts, instead of 254 track width in the front I had 252 and for the rear I moved the swaybar to the inner holes on the lower arms, and the car felt awsome. So my setup was.....


FRONT

Track width---- (252)
Ride height----- (6.5)
Downstop------ (2)
Camber --------(-1.5)
Toe----------- (+1.5)
Tire----------- (37 Shore 68mm)

REAR

Track width-----(262)
Ride Height------(7.5)
Downstop------- (8)
Camber----------(-3)
Toe-------------(-2.5)
Tire-------------(37 Shore 75mm)

Standard Wheelbase

Default SETUP

Track was high bite, track info here: www.4acesrcracing.net

My setup is same as the manual except:

rear axle in center position

rear shock in 2nd hole from bottom

rear bar mounted in inner position on arm and ball studs moved in about 4mm on the bar

rear body mount tabs are in the opposite direction as that shown on the setup sheet and are angled so the body rests on them

rear upper arm is in the middle position on the tower (use the pin bushing that has only one hole, centered)

rear lower arm in the middle outer position

servo saver position in middle

short wheelbase in the front

front axles in center position

no spacers under front upper arm mounts

caster in middle

front camber -2 each side

rear camber -3 each side

front toe +0.5 out each side

rear toe -3 each side

front width 252mm

Body- Zytec (I'll post later how far in front of the bumper), with gurney flap about 5mm behind body

X-Tyres, 37 shore, 75mm/68mm for the A main, 8mm rear ride height, 7.5mm front ride height, smaller tires for qualifying

500 cps Motonica oil in the shocks

49/44 spur gears

Graphite battery tray and graphite rear chassis insert

Rear body mount centering pin in middle position

Gio Racing clutch with Novarossi Flash motor, non conical med header, 2052 pipe, Byron Pro Driver 2500

I built the car with the optional ti layshafts and dogbones and ergal mid layshaft mount and VTX ti screws throughout. The car was about 80 grams under so all the ti screws came off and some lead weights got added on on various parts of the car. This was my first race with the car, I am sure the setup will change as time goes on and of course will change with different tracks and layouts. The wheelbase was the last thing I changed and it made the car much better. I did not qualify all that well as I stripped a spur gear in the warm up of the last round, but I placed 2nd in the main, my fastest lap 16.3; fastest lap in the main (as far as I know) was a 16.2
