Hi guys. Greetings from Malta.
RALF. I haven't actually got a chassis yet, and would prefer to run the moulded Sp chassis if possible.
I like the way everything fits in the SP chassis so well. I have my servo turned around through 90 degrees, with the ears sawn off, so it is only held in place with double sided tape, but the chassis is just the right size so that the KO servo fits like a glove, and doesn't move.
Same with the batteries. The battery placement is more secure with the high chassis sides. I remember the problems I used to have with YR4s with batteries flying out.
I think the SP moulded chassis has many advantages, but I will certainly try the new SSG chassis at the first opportunity.
One of the guys at the track last Saturday - he's actually 2nd to my son Josh in the mod class and also drives a TC3 - had a session with my car and was impressed at how precise the handling was and how easy it was to drive. I told him I would take Josh's TC3 to the track for him to drive on Sunday. I did but he didn't turn up, so I had a couple of 5 minute sessions with it myself.
I must say I prefer my Yoke for handling. It could just be a case of transmitter settings of course. The TC3 handles well - it must do for Josh has won all 8 rounds of the mod championship so far - but it does everything too agressively for my liking. As I said, it could be transmitter settings - at 56 my reflexes aren't what Josh's are at 20 so i have to adjust my transmitter settings accordingly.
We race on the same track again Sunday. It will be interesting to see what race times I can do in race conditions, with race traffic, back markers, etc.
