Thanks robk and decibels! I got some crush tubes yesterday at the lhs and have everything back together now. I'll keep a look out for bearing wear this time! Other than that though, this is the most dialed car I've ever had!

Default Setup plate

I had many requests for a TC5 setup plate. I have just completed the first run. These are working very well on the Mi3 and were tested at the IIC with great reviews. Besides removing tweak it can be used for accurately checking droop, working on car, storeage and travel.

As many know, the ITF (2mm rubber type R) chassis is awesome on asphalt, but susceptible to tweak (twist front to rear). It also works equally as well on the 2.5mm chassis. Problem is solved with the bulkhead holes that go thru the plate so you can tighten from underneith while clamped dead flat (loosen bulheads / top deck before loading and clamping). Clamp system mounts in under 1 minute making for fast inspection of chassis after a hard hit.

I have limited quantities and prob. will be some time before we run these again.

More info on the webpage.

Yes it will. The important areas for clamping are the corners near the bulheads and arm mounts to be flat and parallel end to end. The center clamp was added just to assure a small center bow gets pulled down, but that should not effect the more important mount ends of chassis.

the diffrence is, the spool is a full time solid axle, and the one way is a solid on power, but lets the tires free wheel off power (no front brakes) what you should run depends on the track conditions, what class your running and how your driving style is. lower bite youd generally run a spool, higher bite a one way. also, i tend to see more people run one ways in stock than mod. a solid will be easier to drive if its your first time out, but dont be suprised if a one way is the ticket

hey guys, just got my car on the track for the first time today. looks great. my problem is that the car, every time i go thru a corner the car slips and does like a 270 degree spin or more. the diff and ride hight are set and the camber. (i am on carpet) ive slimmed it down to the tires just being worn. any of you have any other suggestions that may help my problem?

Since you mentioned that you are running old tires...Are the sidewalls of those tires glued REALLY well? It is important to check and touch up the gluing on rubber tires often. I check them every run.

I ask this because before we get into your chassis setup it is good to eliminate these kind of problems first...

most people who run carpet/rubber use rubber tire bodies, ie mazda 6, mazdaspeed 6, etc.
