Howdy! New to the RC scene, figured I'd say hey to the locals. Does Banana have folks that can offer advice on final assembly of a build? I am going to be grabbing a 410.3 kit and will need some help with installing electronics and making sure I am setting it all up correctly. It would really suck to drop a few hundred on electronics and then burn them out immediately due to stupidity. I would like to avoid that lol. Good to know you all and hope to meet some of y'all eventually.

Yeah there are folks there that can help. Trey is behind the counter and can help and any of the racers typically there on race nights can also help. However, the SCT classes are not allowed on the track there.

Sounds good. I wan't planning on racing the 410.3 so no worries on that, just need some oversight on final assembly. Thanks!

Carpet off road series started last sunday. Six weeks with five to count, come on down, the layout is pretty sweet. Nice double and smaller tabletop with kickers all around. Lattice laid down to throw the cars off balance on two corners.

Most are using the CRC F1 tires. There might be one or two still using the Pit Shimizu tires. I know of a guy that experimented with the Gravity pre-glued tires but he said they did not work well for him on the carpet.

Thanks for the reply Jlock, I have some CRC's coming in the mail and was contemplating the Pits... I may hold off on those now.

I had Ride XR's the one time I ran F1 there and they were horrible...

The Ride R1 tires are really more for outdoor asphalt track racing. Pit tires work really well at the Banana but many hate trying to glue them to the rims since Pit doesn't have pre-mounts. I have both and can tell you with my set up, the Pits work better and I am so-so on the CRCs. Been running the CRCs on my Xray F1 but may go back to the Pits.

Start with the PS 0571 fronts and PS 0572 rears. You also might want to get a pair of PS 0574 fronts that are leaning towards the medium side in case the PS 0571 have too much front bite. Also at the Banana, most layouts have more right-hand than left-hand turns so if you traction roll turning right, try not to tire sauce the left front tire. I had this issue and it stopped when I only sauced the inner half of the right front tire. Also, make sure your car's ride height is about 4mm to 4.5mm max. Too low with scrape the carpet and slow you down (drag) and too high will cause the car to either push in the turns or traction roll (high center of gravity in this case).
