Default setup steps

Our first practice session is tomorrow before our club races start next Saturday Finally !!!!

I finished installing my g4 upgrade and I'm about to do the stock setup as per the manual but i have a question for you guys.

In what order do you do the steps? In the manual, you start with droop and finish with ride height. I always thought you did droop, then ride height, camber, toe in, etc...

I thought the second you change your ride height, doesn't it change the camber? So logically if you camber, then adjust ride height, your camber reading is no longer valid!!! Can anyone clear this up as I'm far from an expert in the setup department.

Thanks
Charles.

Did someone asked if TM will be releasing a new car? I'm sure I saw the post here on RCTech but can't find it now. Can't even remember if it was on this thread or another one ... must be growing old!

A updated kit is expected later in the year once current stock is sold out.
That was the last i heard from TM.It basically will have a ED and a few items revised.

Hudy Setup Guide has the order of the steps. You can download a copy here:

I have exclusive pics but as a courtesy I asked TM's permission if I could post them on 3hobby.net. Awaiting their reply.

Do you have any other details Razzor?

Default International TecRace'07

Hi everybody,
An international meeting will be celebrated next june in Spain. I copy a little fragment of the race info:

TecroTec is pleased to invite you at one of the most exciting event of the year in touring 200mm: The TecRace 2007 edition, a promotional meeting hosted during the first weekend of June (1 Friday ~ 3 Sunday) on the Pinseque track (Adcaz club) located in Zaragoza, Spain. Team Magic and Team Orion will help with the organization, with lots of gifts and moving some of their top drivers to the race (Adrien Bertin, Darren Jonhson and Oscar Jansen have confirmed their attendance).

Our goal is that everybody enjoys the emotion of a top level race, but keeping the friendly atmosphere of a local race, including technical talks by international top drivers, food, awards and some surprises that will turn the TecRace into a special event.

More info at http://www.tecrotec.com/index.php?op...=99&Itemid=103



The atmosphere in last GP in Madrid was fantastic, it's sure in Zaragoza will be the same or better!

why is that Mark ?
Was running in the IDM yesterday, and did 3 more tanks in practice. first heat i had for some reason been running behind. i put on new tires, and forgot until i came back in, that i maxed ride hieght yeaterday to not pick up rocks out the front on the road. so i had huge ride hieght and no droop. fixed this for 2nd qualifier. car was better but lacked steering and was hard to get around some corners, and going a bit leaner with the IDM as well. was a slow time but came in 4th overall. 3rd qualy was looking really good, then 2nd gear spur stripped. last 7 laps were done with no 2nd. but good enough to get me stright in the A final with out running a semi.
we had a 20 min lunch break, and i put 2 new spurs on and it was fine in the practice. warm up for the final was good as well. did 3 laps in the final and 1st gear went. soi rushed and put a nother on. didnt get out of pit lane
so i took my time the next spur and reset the mesh to be sure. one corner, another spur. i think Mark was getting tired of bringing my car in anyway didnt finish and came last, or 10th over all. after inspecting my car, i found 2 engine screws on the top of the mount missing. at least i found the problem now pity not 4 or 5 hours ago oh well next time.

Yeah, not much interest for my racing today either. Car was s#!t, engine was setup wrong(ate 4 plugs due to incorrect head clearance) and my result showed the same. I think I ended up 6th but I doubt I did many more laps than Paul.

vc05hdt did better than all of us with a 3rd place in the final of pullstart class.

I was lucky today to get where I did. Really both G4S cars were fast then just stopped. Actually a lot of drivers going thru plugs today. Was it low humidity as well Mike?
