2010 Electric onroad nationals pro12 setup

Here's my setup from the nationals this year for my 12r5.1:

I began testing with my 4.5t X12 LRP but it had too much torque for the traction at Christchurch, and it was getting too hot for me to gear it any taller. my Novak 4.5t lite wasn't soo bad, as it has a smoother torque range, but that and the LRP were sucking out most of 1s Lipo battery, and there's nothing worse then if you are in a final and you are unsure if you are going to dump or not. I put in my LRP 7.5t X11 (same motor i ran at the last nationals), and there was a lot less torque which was good, and I kept gearing it up and up and up, as well as cranking the timing on the ESC until it reached the perfect temp. I originally started with a gear ratio of 96 spur 35 pinion, and ended up at the end of the weekend with an 88 spur and a 46 pinion with the motor running at 60 degrees, and only 3300mah used in the whole 8 minute race.

I tried the jaco double pink front tyres throughout the weekend also, but it gave too much initial steering, and the tyres wore out extremely quick.

Changes I made to stock setup (which can't be seen on the setup sheet):

  • Put shims either side of the front wishbones to make the front wider, which settles the car down greatly.

  • Put 1 more rear shim in at the back each side to make the rear slightly wider for more mid-exit corner grip.

  • Used the Small ackerman shims for slightly less steering

  • Cut the center shock shaft 10mm, as standard it wasn't giving enough forward droop

  • replaced carbide diff balls with ceramic
