Run the camberlink as long as possible, low on the tower, no wahers under the ball stud on the hub carrier (if you're running the V2 rear end). This setup provides the most camber gain (a little more side bite upon exiting a corner).

Anyone have a setup for rough asphalt, small track,rubber tires, they would like to share. I know just happens to be the biggest/most competitive class at a local track.

I can lock it in with softer rubber but then 1 set of tires per race day is a bit expensive for club racing. Just curious if anyone has any recomendations.

I don't really know one but I would bet the settings in the back of the manual would be a good start. They were a good start for the foam tires.

I've played with the manual setup, and looked on asc's site. I'm sure with a little testing time I can get it close. Just thought if someone already runs on something similar they might have some insight.

Mark, I've been working on a setup for that type of track. Very abrasive (chip & seal surface), short and bumpy. I started with the factory team recommended setup and Sorex 28 rear and 32 front with HPI foams (green front, red rear). The handling was just OK, with the rear getting loose easily. I was also going through tires at an alarming rate.

After several race nights, here's what I've found:

HPI foams are too thick for the Sorex tires and Orion wheels (73001, I think) that I have. I tried a set of Take-off Med foams out of some old pre-built CS-27s and the tire wear problem went away. The rear was much more planted, as well. The Take-off foams are about .025 thinner than the HPIs.

This got me close to where I wanted to be. Next, I found these changes to the setup recommended by the manual to try to get the rear to hook-up on and off power:

Went from 40 to 60wt. oil in the front shocks.
Went from 3 to 4 on the rear droop setting.

Our track temps the last few weeks have been 100-150F and I've been running Sorex 32 front/28 rear, with Take-off foams. The car is really hooked-up and tire life is excellent. I've used the same set of tires for qual races for the last 3 race days and they still look good. I have some Sorex Type C super thin foams to try out next week.

I'm a rookie this year and I can basically run with anyone in the class with this setup (until I clip a roadrail and flip it, which I did after leading 19 of 22 laps this week, grrr).

Hope this helps.

I figred I would have to get some tires, but wanted to try what I had in the used/used-up box for the first few races. I think I ran 28/24 in the main and the car got looser , as the race progressed. In the third qualfier I tried yok 138g's med/firm and didn't like them as much.

well I got my NTC3 up and running with the RD logics R3 motor, it's been broken in and I was tuning it for top speed when I had a wonderful encounter with a section of curb. I have very happy to say that the only thing wrong with the car as a bent CVD dogbone! the top speed of the car is great (using the venom speed meter, it was going 68mph) i'm hoping to get it about 80+ I have a big parking lot to use! just doing little tricks like removing the sheilding on the bearings and lighter diff lubes and body was worth a difference in 16mph. by main concern is cooling as with the body on it runs about 40-45* hotter than without the body!
