Much much smoother and more controlable power delivery cause the belt stretches and absorbs some of the torque. The car just handles much better then the TC4, it turns more. Much better car over all. My only complaint is that for a touring car it does have a bit of slop in the suspension components compaird to the X-Ray and Corally cars.

Xtreme RC magazine will have the review in their upcoming issue.

I run foams on asphalt. Has anyone tried using the stock 2.5 chassis with the ITF top deck? I have the ITF top deck on order. I am using the stock chassis with 4 screws & orings holding the topdeck on. It hooks up good so far with this setup.

Hi
I use the stock chassis with the ITF top deck (sometimes with orings on all 8 screws) It is certainly an improvement on the standard set up.

I have not used the ITF chassis.

Default Lower CG?

Has anyone ever tried to mill 1.5 or 2 mm away from the bulkheads and
steering post to lower the CG?. I am thinking about that for quite a while now...

I think that would be such a small amount of weight it would not matter at all.

For asphalt 99% of drivers run the ITF top deck and ITF chassis, or at least the stock 2.5mm chassis with the ITF top deck.

from the reading i have done that mod is not worth the trouble, and will not give you much of a change. however if you dropped the middle layshaft by about 2-2.5mm that would be the change to make.

The car works just fine like it is...One of the selling points for me was the high top deck on the car so that I could fit my LIPO with a weight below it. The car is very capable, and a lower CG I don't think will make a great difference. You might want to ask Bob how a lower CG will affect the overall design before you go cutting into bulkeds.

Good luck and if you do it post pics

Bob said when he was bulding the car that the higher cg helps the car not tweak or hold its tweak.

Here is a copy of the setup I have been running in 13.5 rubber. I think it will be a great place to start. If you have any questions just let me know.

Josh-

Are you running the o-rings on the rear screws of the top deck?
