The weather is no longer an issue, we only needed a few days of sun to put up our 130'x80' circus tent we race under, let it rain!

Check us out on FB or Youtube, search Sutton Aviation Raceway, Ottawa, Canada.

Heavy,

Sweet! A circus tent, Wow! what a great idea, thus let it rain! Again that is a great use of a circus tent. I definitely will check it out.

Have an excellent rest of your weekend my friend.

Has anyone used the new 3mm chassis on low bite (packed dirt) bumpy track conditions?
If so how did it work. I am wondering if the add weight of the chassis may helps in planting the buggy better. With that being said I am wondering if the added rigidity of the chassis may not allow enough flex?
I planning on racing tomorrow thus I am contemplating switching to the 3mm chassis.
Just holding it in your hands I can definitely feel it is quite a bit more rigid than the 2mm as well as the extra weight is noticeable.

Heavy,

I just checked out a video from 2014 and brother that is a very nice track set-up. Wow! Nice facility and I would think a circus tent would be much more friendly financially speaking.
Again, I think the whole set-up is excellent and the track design is sweet.

Very impressive my friend!

How good is the kit carpet setup for the '15? I need to get a new set of rear springs and a roll bar in order to set the car up, but dont want to throw a load of money at the car just at the moment, so if anyone can confirm that the 3 dot rears and a 1.6 rear bar will be a good starting point that'd be cool.
Also do I read the setup sheet right that you dont run front or rear top decks?

Has anyone tried the Trifecta wing?

Does it offer better performance or durability over the stock wing?

How is the composite diff working out first te I see this. That the diff gears are composite instead of steal diff gear. Do the composite diff make the car faster???

I like them, they seem to last 3 times longer.

Performance, maybe. Durability is a yes. Comment above about lasting 3 times longer is pretty accurate.

I was concerned about durability on these but I have had the car since Christmas and no problems. I usually run the car twice a week and still have new backups in the package. Logically speaking they will lighten the drivetrain/rotating mass and make the car more snappy but I haven't tested this since I don't have the metal gears. I know Bentka uses these as tuning options. This is assuming you are talking about the internal diff gears and not the ring and pinion. The ring and pinion plastic gears had some durability issues from reading previous posts in this thread.

Xray have a wing package with two wings available in either 1.5mm or 2.0mm thicknesses made of lexan and they are great.

Nothing wrong with the composite internal spider gears, run them until they break and replace them with metal then if you like, they're the same price. The composites have lasted me a long time.
