Hi,

here's our base setup for carpet



I thought I'd post our setup for carpet.

Front

Springs: white
Oil: 60wt assoc
Pistons #2's
Caster blocks: 4* assoc/losi steeing knuckles
front block: F-0
shock mounting: lower outer hole on arm, middle hole on a rear shock tower mounted up front. (I cut off the outer most hole).
camber link: lower inner on shock tower.
Sway bar: either a .078 or a .062 up front (depending on bite).
Tires: Jaco double Pink/Orange or Purple/Orange.

Rear:

Springs: Purple or copper (depending on bite)
Oil: 50wt Assoc
Pistons: #2's
Rear toe in: either the "R" block with the R+2+0 or the "F" block with the R+3+0 block. (I shim up the "F" block with 2 motor washers per side).
Rear Hubs: Losi 0* hubs.
Camber link: upper inner hole on hte shock tower and the inner hole on the hub carrier.
Sway Bar: none
Tires: Jaco double pinks or purples.

Camber: 1.5* all around. (less up front if the tires are coning)
Batteries: forward.
Motor: either a Monster stock or a MVP
Tire size: 2.360 (new Jaco rims) 2.3 (old rims)
Elecronics: GT7 speedo, (#4setting) XXTra Rx, JR 8714 servo, and a personal transponder mounted on the servo.
Body: Losi Alfa. slammed or a Startus (old one).

hope this helps.

the only change we made was to go to 70wt Assoc up front for Cleveland and we ran a 2.0 Stratus.
we went back to the Alfa this weekend

and Jaco dpuble pinks and double pink/orange for tires.

Thanks
Thanks for the setup. Hopefully Jason got it out in the mail today. Looking forward to trying it this weekend.

For you guys running carpet a bunch is there anything else you could think I might need to add to a Factory team kit? I havent run a tc3 since they came out. Just wanna build it right the first time!!

Thanks

ea

Well, K-Factory is the mfg. Steve at SpeedTech carries their line of parts, just look under the NTC3 upgrade parts section of his website. A real nice shop and a real good guy, can't go wrong ordering there.

What do you mean "no ackerman" - there should be a certain amount of ackerman. The inside tire must turn slightly more than the outside tire - that's what ackerman is - and it has to do that because the inside tire turns a slightly tighter turn than the outside tire. . .so, could you clarify what you mean?

Thanks!

hey boomer.how have you been?your nitro chassis still working for ya?
you are exactly right about the ackerman.the nitro steering rack was designed to fit the nitro car.for perfect ackerman on the nitro car you need to use the front position on the steering hub for the ball end and tie rod.the electric car does not offer that position.in order to achieve the right ackerman on the electric car you have to mount the rack in the right place.we found it.
