Default 1/8th Kyosho GT/GT2 Spec > Setups....

From several posts that I have read I think this class is becoming pretty popular and would like to take the time to discuss setups.

In an effort make this class easy, fun and affordable.
No one likes a car that they cannot drive due to setup and thus become frustrated with it....

I have not seen any setup sheets on these yet so maybe we could get a gfx designer to draw one up and convert to .pdf format.

Anyhow. Hopefully we can talk basics as well as some detailed adjustments.

-Max Engine Temps (already seen someone shell a new motor too lean).
-How to adjust the 2 speed tranny
-Tires...what is working for you and what surface?
-Does anyone know what the stock shock fluid is?
-2 or 3 shoe clutch?
-Shock positions
-Front / Rear Droop
-Ride Heights

Be sure to include what surface you are racing on.
-Asphalt (Parking lot or raceway only)

Make sure you check this: Gear mesh, tighten all screws on the chassis

-We run on 5 year old Raceway Asphalt with VHT compound.
-I am told engine temps should not exceed 280 degress.
-Multiple tire combos ran here Ipanema and Losi... Seems like the Ipanema are hooked up, but they tend to wear...
-Still setting up my GT which seems to push through the turns... Tweaking the motor up slowly.

*Hope this is a helpful thread.
