Haven't posted on RC Tech in forever but I noticed some folks were asking about setup sheets. I ran my truck all winter at a couple of local indoor clay tracks. The setup sheet I am posting here is...

For those two tracks you are NOT going to be running the same setup. A higher ride height will probably be necessary for the 1/8 scale track while lowering it would be key for the ridiculously high...

I would say either ease up with the trigger finger, reduce throttle/punch, or go back to 60K center (or more). Sounds like you are ballooning the fronts on throttle which is a dead indicator that...

Yup, I would go to somewhere around 7200 mAh on the batteries. The 5000's will run a few practice laps and start to fade, lol. Even with the 7200, on many ESC's the default lipo cutoff will be too...

tylem28, I will say this about mid motor cars: you shouldn't be on the brakes all that often. That being said, try lowering your brake frequency.

You do need to get the solder joint done fairly quickly on motors and ESC's but it isn't as sensitive as the circuit boards you are familiar with. I run my iron with the temp pretty high so I can...

Given the same total surface area of the holes in the piston, the piston with the smaller hole diameters will pack up before the piston with the larger holes. Large holes will allow the tire to...

Basically what's happening there is you are falling over onto the front outside tire because there is too much grip for the suspension to resist the movement. You need to definitely increase spring...

I wouldn't necessarily call "body roll" a handling issue. What exactly do you want your truck to do differently? Typically when grip goes up you would increase oil weight and spring rate. If you...

If you are on a budget, the .3 is still pretty capable. I'll be running one this summer as our $$$ went into getting my son a .4 (he kicks the tar out of me anyway). If you have the dough, the .4 is...

Removing the rear brace definitely helps plant the rear end of the truck. And it is noticeable to just about anyone in back to back comparisons. I very seldom run with the rear or center brace on...

Setting a slipper is easy and quick. If you are running a mod motor just hold both rear wheels and blip the throttle. If the front end starts to lift off the table you are at a good starting point....

Hey welcome to RC Tech! I agree with EbbTide, you don't want to be using an eliminator unless there is pretty dang good grip. What made you think you needed to rebuild the slipper? Is there...

I do the same thing with shock oil except we peak out at where you are currently at and drop into the 50's early and late in the outdoor season. It's a good idea and one most should pay attention...

The 7200 should be enough unless it's on its last legs. That being said, these things don't really like running that long with any of the electronics. It could be motor heat, ESC heat, heat in the...

I think it may have been JConcepts and I think it may have been knurled on the end so you could keep it from spinning easier. Never tried one. Should have.
