well after assembling the chassis I can say this is a great project for any driver new to touring cars. and any driver that want a no brainer class fun one design class.

If you need help just follow the pictures >typical tamiya style
don't get creative.. nothing to really adjust. just clean off flashings
.

Tuning tips
1, use the supplied grease it works perfect in the diffs and where indicated
2. Build the shocks dry
3 .Break in the mabuchi motor brushes and bushings using water bath.
4. Install bearing set car is really smooth
5. the tires have no foams - don't put in any cuz they not allowed,, ..just glue tire to the rims
6. Use as little paint on the cab to keep weight down low

Just open box and build to instruction there's no tuning capability (no adjustments for camber, caster, toe ride height dampening)

Use the supplied gearing and just have fun.  the point is there is no tuning.

smiles per mile.. if this is a class you are trying to win in  that's not for you
think of it as a kit class RTR.

fun class one design  they have tried MX starts, reveres direction  inverted start (tq in the back)  time trials and fast guys to the back..  

Badboy.

Because it's hard to determine sarcasm in type, here's two answers: 1. If you're joking, I say, "ha." 2. If you're serious, then your answer is, "build it exactly as the instructions say."

Fun class and slow.  erfect for me.  Makes you come back to a TCS style race. I might do the TCS race in Fresno with the semi truck and mini.  I'm not too serious in racing that much nowadays.  Just wanted to have fun.

 

 

I'm not the best driver out there.  But I'm still having fun

That's a fact jack..  but  I think its cool  that everyone wants to keep it as box stock as possble    I do think the bearing set is good  the supplied bushings wear out fast and really make the car hard to drive as the will tend to bind up.  you remember your TCS days ...ugh.

It say it is a Welcome Class   to anyone who wants to have fun with RC. Box Cars are fun..  anither one is that Camisa DTM cars   run as is  just add lipo  its fun too

...but then that just lets racers use a TAMIYA connector to bullets for Wolfpacks. I will replace both sides of mine to TAMIYA style. They should not even allow bearings for this class, just whatever the kit comes with straight out of the box.

Suggestion how about a junction connector. In between the 2 different connectors! Deans to tamiya.

Yeah, that's how it is. I'm running a Peak Racing Powermax 4200 mah 45c battery I bought at NorCal. Eric said that it'd be the class battery at NorCal, but I think that was before we knew where to find the rules. It's a white Tamiya Connector.

Looks like the Wolfpack only comes with Deans type connectors. We have to use TAMIYA style for club and not for TCS? Just want to make sure before I cut off a good connector.

Plugs don't limit amount of amperage charging. I can charge any plug with alligator clamps at any amps.

Joey- Unless the specific class calls out a specific battery.  The Truck GT class requires any Reedy Wolf or Peak Powermax "round" lipo.

I'm leaving my white Tamiya connectors on for now, but come closer to the TCS race in Fresno at the end of January, I'll have to consider switching. Also, BadBoy, Mike Ramsey already painted his to be Optimus Prime... but it'd be interesting to see your take on it.
I can paint something else..  his looks good.

Since the TCS rules have been made we should go by the TCS rules. You don't have to switch to deans plugs of you don't want to.
