I know what you told me Paul. I just want to know if it is possible to get the car to work with a thick t-plate. I am just doing the same thing what Russell is doing but in a less conspicous way. I am an electronic technician that works on laser printers right now. So I have to tear them down to understand how they work. This is my thinking on the 12th scale. I go through thinking how the car would react to certain changes in setup and changes in track conditions, since i have now greatly like driving this car, and found it more enjoyable than TC. I just want to utilize my tech sklls with my hobby. If I can find away to use a thicker t-plate and do better more power to me. As you said "It takes time, setup skills, and patience." Well, I am working on the setup skills and lokking to work on driving skill. Be it be practicing or playing racing video games that give me the abillity to do changes to setups on the cars on the game. I am just trying to understand the geometry of the car and how it reacts to certain things and why.

Tim should be able to help guide you Carlos. He knows our car well and has been racing 12th forever. His results on the track back up his mouth also.

hey, not to sound stupid. but how do you figure out your roll out. I tryied gearchart .com just got confused. right now i just switch to a 96 spur and a 34 pinion. rear tire dia. is 51mm, running 3300 and monter stocker. hand out.

now, even if you tell me what my roll out is. how does one use it to one's advantage.

I don't mean to ask so many question. I just trying to figure out all this gear ratio out.

Heck you can even point me to some where I can read about it.

Hey cyrrus! Measure your rear tire diameter (Let's say it's 1.8"). Take that number and multiply it by pi (3.14159). In this example you end up with 5.66. Now divide your spur size by your pinion size. Let's say 100 tooth spur / 25 tooth pinion = 4.0. Final step is to divide 5.66 by 4.0 wich is 1.42" <- That's your rollout

an easier way to write all that is...

(tire diameter*3.14159)/(spur/pinion)

To answer the rest of your question, I use it to maintain the performance of my car as the tires wear. Once you have a good rollout for a particular motor on a particular track, you always know what pinion / spur combo to use...

Default 12th scale racers

Hye guys just wanted to let ya know about a new front end shim kit for pan cars. ive been using them for a while.. there like the crc ones, exept you get 5 sizes and enough to do both sides of the car.. i like them because i dont have to true down the tires to get .010 chassis change..
they also nicer then the crc ones because they are perfectly round. the crc ones i tried are slotted.. they work good on the block front ends but on the dynamic front they dont fully support the lower arm when screwed down..

I really love not having to take my front end off completely to change ride height. I'll have to check my 12th so see if it's tweaked at all...

I give the same advice to everyone, it's up to you if you want to listen or not. There is a reason why I can get my Rat and L4 to turn 35 laps at our track....it's called driving experience and setup knowledge. You've gotten a lot better over this past year, but you still need to get 2.5 more laps. It takes time, setup skills, and patience. I drove Picco's car and could only get 33 laps with it....with that said if your car is not setup properly it will be impossible to keep up with the fast guys.

Too bad there is no racing this weekend



Damn, I thought you were faster than that with my car . I guess that spur gear issue didn't slow you down

Carlos, P2 is the fastest 12th scale person out there, he knows is stuff. For crying out loud he's older than both of us put together .

Seriously, P2 knows what the changes on almost any car will do. He won't give you bad advise. He has no reason too.

Yeah, but your now up there with him since you both got the 35 laps. Just as I was getting closer you both get one more on me. I am just looking to better the car with other setups, that is all. As P2 said is about setup experience, driving skill, and patience. Well, how am I going to get setup experience if I don't experiment for myself. It is like trying to getting a job but you get one cause you the employer is looking for experience and you don't have any. I appreciate the help and advise like I said in the past, but I want to see what the car can do with certain setups.And also you both have different driving skills than i do, so your setups may not work, like Toasties' setup for the old FOC Evo2 Xray.It did not work for me at all. I had to go back to my own setup. Well, I will work on my car setup and driving skill hopefully my patience can hold out.
