Eric, I am going to say "no". Novak Smart Boost seem to always preform fine in non-ramping classes. It was when ramping was introduced that they would start to brown out.

Wes should be able to chime in on that if he looks at rctech. I used a Reedy last race timed at 38* rolled at 106mm with a 956 rotor.

97.6mm, timing the second from last hash mark, though cranked works okay just fades faster. I am running the black and purple rotor, a really strong one. If you fade, take a touch of timing out at a time until it improves. They are fickle.

A D3.5 with 102mm roll out and 18 degrees of timing is a very good motor as well.

What's a good baseline setup for the TC6.1 for Stock Touring? Smooth and easy to drive is more important than outright speed. It'll be a base setup for a novice, running a silver can.

I think we get in the habit of immediately looking past the kit setup. The TC6.1 is an evolved version of a known good car. Start with what the manual says and take it from there.

Have you tried the kit setup on a TC6.1? It's not pretty on carpet.

I'm sure one of these should work. I see Kody's setup listed, copy his nats setup.

Kody's might be a bit tough to drive. I'll take a look, though.

Alvin, this is the car you sold Bhargav(sp?). Do you know what pistons and bladders are in the shocks?

Phil runs Kody's setup, and it's butter. Easy to drive, and with the reduced speeds of novice, shouldn't be an issue, but as Todd already said, I think the kit setup would be more than adequate for novice speed.
