Maybe eventually. Once demand is met on the lipo chassis.



Ok guys- in stock and ready to ship!!

That Chassis is nice... Does anyone have a good base setup for carpet? And also what does the oneway do?

I find that you have to drive with more throttle.

With a diff I would brake before the corner, coast to the apex and then accelerate out of the corner. Nothing special.

With a spool however, your steering comes from what is essentially torque steer. Since you have no diff effect you car doesn't turn well on corner entry, so to make it turn you need to be on the throttle, to get that torque steer.
So I find for best results you should brake before the corner, then instead of coasting to the apex, keep a little throttle on, so that you get steering and then accelerate hard out of the corner. You can get on the throttle sooner as well since you have so much on throttle steering with a spool.

It can take some getting used to, since you need to get the confidence to use throttle mid-corner and find the point which you can accelerate soonest, which is earlier than I expect.

Hope that helps.

Regards

Neal

My setup is quite close to that, is just me but does removing the front sway bar actually increase the speed of the car. I was testing the other day intially it was a spring change, but then I removed the bar and the car became more responsive with more speed and this was noticable with motor temp. Since then I have changed rear wheelbase from 1mm to 0mm hopefully that'll improve things.
Hopefully I can do better then 4th on my second clubbie, I finished 4th overall with the first club race that I ran my TC5 in.

Nobody at my track runs a spool. It is a very tight and tech track. Would I be better off chasing their setups or running a spool and start with a pros setup? I am tired of fighting the car but dont have time to experiment too much...we race every other week at a Hobbytown and have 30 minutes of practice before the heats...

sway bars take away traction and body roll example put one on the front and it takes away front grip but also keep the car from rolling over which make the car feel tight

I just picked up a one way for my tc5. There seems to be a lot of space between the one way hub and the carrier bearing. What are you guys doing to clean up this space? It seems like too much to just ad washers.
