Drift Bible - Chassis Set Up for GCRC Raceway 2015 - Countersteer

If you return to GCRC there are a few changes you might need to do on your chassis to get the first-class consequences.


Knowing every tune is one of a kind, At GCRC you WILL be chasing grip. Drift and slide isn't an problem.

The goal is to preserve riding speeds low and realistic on the diorama circuit.

GCRC Track Design and Surface

GCRC has a refined concrete surface.

It may be very very easy and you could run your frame shell extremely low.

Even with 1-2mm ground clearance.

The layout is at the tighter quit of the spectrum and calls for a first rate quantity of manage for the narrower format.

The lack of an extended directly way lower pinnacle speeds

Although the track is surrounded with the aid of fleximble boundaries, due to the decrease top speeds, affects aren't a actual issue.

Inside the past couple of years, I actually have had no breakages from impact.

GCRC Control Tyre

Control Tyre is mandatory for a CS or 50:50 chassis are the following :

RC-Art Derive RT-01SH ( HDPE Plastic tyre for Carpet )


Top Line Sports Edition TDT-002PE  ( HDPE Plastic for Carpet.)

Available in keep at GCRC.

Acceptable others are similar including RC926 HDPE and Kazama Premium HDPE

You will now not have a trouble sliding with these tyres. But you'll need to try to increase the mechanical grip of a widespread chassis.

Tyre wear is negligible.  I have some sets lasting 6 months or more.

GCRC Power Recommendations

With the tyre grip at a minimum and the floor so smooth, it does not take much strength to get the rear wheels spinning.

Most guys run a 17.5T motor that is greater than sufficient with a CS setting.

Even a 21.5T

If you run a thirteen.5T you may turn out to be lowering the total throttle EPA to about 70%

Honestly, Less strength way greater on throttle grip and no longer doing burnouts and wasting power.

I have attempted to run a 7.5T on full throttle, it just sits there spinning the whole thing. So it usually ends up on about 28p.CEPA. In different words, again to a 17.5T.

ESC temps might be very low and 5800mah batteries tend to closing from 1 hour to two hours.

Suspension and chassis stability

Remember you will be chasing grip and lowering slip. So the softest settings and properly placed weight make a huge difference at GCRC,

I use light oils inside the 20weight variety and comes are in the softest ultra-smooth range on the rear and barely heavier oil up the front however nevertheless with a awesome-soft range.

I additionally need a the front bumper weight or weighted the front bumper to get the the front grip I want to save you understeer.

Sometimes to counter this I use a totally rear weighted bodyshell to offer me slide manage and duration to my flow entries.

Front weighted chassis like MST MS01D additionally perform very well right here.

Light plastic chassis additionally discover traction hard. So a piece of weight like a larger battery can make a large difference.

GCRC Counter-Steer Ratio.

What makes realism viable at GCRC is the capacity to run better CS ratios.

The low speeds and coffee grip imply that you could run a better ratio.

What do I suggest by using higher ratio:

Well most excessive producers don't make elements that growth countersteer over 2.Zero

This is first-class for those starting out however the rear wheel speeds come to be better at GCRC which isn't always in reality applicable.

We like to under power the the front to obtain as a minimum the same ratio after which slightly boom rear power.

Target range is 2.5:1 ~ 3.2:1   (My personal favourite is about 2.8cs)

A setup like this is in belt drive is front 42t:10t  Rear 17t:33t

With low energy motor and excessive counter steer, you could still squeeze that throttle!

Having said that, there may be not anything wrong with a lower setting like 1.9, Just make the the front softer so it'll kick out the rear and be organized to trickle on the throttle so as not to overpower the grip.

GCRC Counter Steer Setting Summary

Surface: Polished Concrete

Control Tyre: HDPE for carpet

Power: Low rev automobiles round 17.5T

Suspension : Very Soft

Weight : Heavier and Slightly ahead.

With the ones matters in vicinity your chassis dynamic will permit for ripping it up at GCRC

Enjoy your RC.

Especially at GCRC!
