JQ’s newest ‘European’ style setups

JQ Setups

After his recent JQRacing World Tour, JQ is back on his home turf in Europe. Despite the trip around the globe, JQ and his army haven’t stopped working upon their return home. They have released several of their newest ‘European’ style setups that have been successfully tested recently.

“Been back in Europe for a while now, and started working on a different style of setup, long rear arm, laydown shocks, just something different. These setups will work pretty much anywhere, but maybe more geared towards European tracks. The idea is to make the car more comfortable to drive on fast tracks, and to make it easier to maintain cornerspeed. Check them out, and let us know what you think!”

JQ releases White Edition Setup 3.0


Joseph Quagraine has traveled the seven seas, and found his way to America. If you follow along with JQ via his various social media outlets, you already know he has spent countless hours testing, tuning, and racing on American soil (with the occasional Saturday night break for supercross). With all of the testing, THETeam has put together and shared the latest ‘factory mods’ and setup for THECar.

“Been doing some more testing over the past few weeks, and discovered some new ideas and setups. THECar has improved immensely! I definitely recommend you do these modifications. We have already started developing parts so you don’t need to modify anything, but for now, if you want the best out of your car, please check this out and do the work!”

Ronnefalk’s ‘Dirt’ setups

We have his two setups! Available on our Setup page and here!

Tebo’s roll centre tips


Always one to pass on a handy tip & what not, we were breezily browsing the interweb (including the occasional cat video & something called ‘twerking?!’) when we came across a rather useful and very honest account from the current 2WD 1/10th Offroad World Champion Jared Tebo, it turns out that no matter how winning-est you are, the dark arts of RC Car setup are something else!

In this case Tebo kindly shares his personal experience and discovery with us mere driving mortals, so at least we can get the car working reasonably!

“I have just had a revelation in my RC racing career. I think I finally understand roll centers a little!”

I must admit, I’m not an engineer, and I really don’t understand all engineering aspects of the cars. I’m a driver, and I go all by feel. It’s worked well, and I can normally get my cars pretty good for me, but there are disadvantages as well.

Roll center adjustments I have always struggled with, mostly in 1/10, as it’s a very easy adjustment. I never really know what I’m doing in this area. I try asking other engineers what does what, but I normally get a novel answer that left me more confused than before. All I want to know is what makes it roll more, or less. Somehow I got it painted in my brain that if you raise the inner link, that makes it roll less. I would always have that in my head, and my feeling on the track would be confused.
