How do you set up a truck for racing onroad
tires,camber setting on the front end ect.
what kind of truck are we talking about?
XXXT what kind of tires and camber?
oh,thats that Losi,i think,right?.Losi and Teamassociated make great Statium trucks for off-road racing.the best in the world,actually,but they have ball differentials.that,you dont want for on-road.the Traxxas Rustler has a planetary gear differential so,when the car is clocked strait,the gears are fully engaged.
as far as tires,i have experimented with the Proline street hawgs for the front and the ribbed tires have more traction in the turns on road.so for the front,stick with the off-road tires but for the back,i would suggest the Proline street hawgs that include the foam inserts.
yes mine has a ball diff do i need to get a gear diff ? so what is happening with my diff when it is clocked straight?
if your diff is not tight enough it will slip.they are nice for off-raod where tires are not fully responsible for traction where you dont rely on just tires.it is much smoother.
what are you intersted in doing with your car?
for racing in a parking lot
so do i need a gear diff? i have the road hwags at all four. i was reading my book on this truck and it says something about adjusting the ackerman what is that.
NO, you don't need a gear diff, ball diffs are much better and tunable. Just about every on-road car out there has a ball diff.
Pretty much tires, suspension, gears, and motor
