rccaraction.com and rcnitro.com has some articles about tunning a motor. Some good tire shores are 40all the way around or 42-45front and 40 rear. But thats if your parking lot has good traction. You could also try 40Front and 37rear.

i am not new to nitro but new to on-road. i have the HPI nitro mt with 2 speed, and associated rc10gt. i am looking at eith the Associated Nitro TC3 Factory kit (im likein the it A LOT), or an hpi. can anyone send me in the right direction as to what to choose and if hpi what one. and this isnt just for drifting actually it is mostly for street racing and club parking lot racing.

I am looking for a shaft driven NOT BELT, 2 speed, and has very good overall speed!! (i will be doing some drag rceing with freinds)

the book is called Ultimate Nitro Engine Guide. it is very helpful and i believe they made it in to a dvd recently if you dont like to read

and as for the shaft driven car. i love my rs4. have a great time with it. but needs a good amount of hopups to commpete

i personally have the rs4 3. i got it a few months before the evo came out. i put a os 18 and its pretty quick. but all rs4 3's are solid cars no matter which model
