Gas racings a harsh environment as well, switches fail from time to time.

Good luck with your switch, make sure you let us all know when you experience the mighty runaway.

Attached is a pic of what i meant when i said to plug in direct to the reciever.

Your car looks like its been wired up by a chimpanzee.

Ive never had switch failure, maybe thats because I look after my car/s.

Heres some real wiring..............




Later....... enjoy crashing.

Is the WC kit setup with the correct tires a good starting setup for Crystal Park and Revelation?

for crystal it should be a good starting point with rev you will probably have to go to harder tires around this time with the cold weather.

[QUOTE=tommi]So I guess your advice will be..."Don't bother trying out one-way at Monacoria Speedway?"

tommi from your first question i noticed your running foam tires on concrete. I don't think foam tires work that well on concrete. you might want to try rubber tires for concrete and foams for asphalt.

Racing4Evo, thanks heaps for the clarification!
Yup, in fact if there is a lack of grip you should try driving with solid front. I think your kit should include the front solid insert to convert the front diff to solid. I used front solid with pretty good results esp during the race using the full track of titi. Try it out and you might like it. However the racing line is slightly different than normal, early braking, early power out and its extremely stable.

TM G4 diff will not fit; it has 48 teeth vs 22 on the RRR

If you are looking for more steering, go to the 12 ackerman

Yup I'm running foam tires on concrete. I was running on this concrete track for the past 2 years with my NTC3 with great success, but I wasn't running any arb and was with diff all the time, so i guess i might just have to revert back the setup on my RRR to some sorta similar setting to my NTC3. Having just acquired the RRR, it's also my first time on belts, on arb, and on one-way; so it will just take some time for me to get use to everything i think. Thanks for the input!

Thanks again, I just tried driving with the stock setting at Glenmarie yesterday night, the track wasn't 100% dried after a light drizzling, but the car handled great. Will try out different setups thru time, but at the moment, based on the outcome of my run yesterday, I gotta stick with the one-way for a while to figure out the best setup and the dynamics of it. Are u still with the NTC3?
