What about the length of the drag link? Will making it longer or shorter effect the reactiveness of the steering on the car in some way?
Changing the length of the drag link will only affect the steering balance left to right. You always want to keep the servo arm and the drag link at or very close to 90 degrees. This will keep the balance left to right as even as possible.

So 1A should be more agressive than 2A

thanks...

Thanks for the info fellas.

I've read in a couple places that some drivers are not using the blue foam pads on the shock bladders at all when running on outdoor asphalt....why is that? Will no foams on the bladders give better traction on low-med traction tracks?

Less rebound, which means slower reaction, which means more body roll and traction.

Im not an expert in this area but I do know that without the foam the shock will have less natural rebound...and less rebound is good on the TC5 for rubber tires....not sure about foam tire setups but I believe some of the team uses the small foam insert...

We need a ask Bob thread

Default Unofficial Launch of Social RC!

Being an Associated guy I had to post the first real announcement here! The team at Social RC (www.socialrc.com) has been working incredibly hard to build an innovative online community for RC Car Racing. Our goal is two fold: the first is to elevate the profile of RC Racing worldwide by giving racers, manufacturers and track operators what they have persistently been asking for - effective tools to network, stay in touch, swap stories/tips and learn about the latest trends and events in RC Racing Web 2.0 fashion! The second is get every single racer to become apart of Social RC, one track at a time (no easy task!).

While the site is still in beta mode, I wanted the Associated guys to take a first peak and let us know your preliminary thoughts and feedback. All feedback can be posted to the site. We have partnered with the manufacturers and track operators and plan on spreading the word to the masses over the next couple week! Racers ready, marshals ready!
