Can anyone suggest a good/clean way to add weight to the lipo side of the tub?
My car is pulling hard to the left and I'm guessing this is the problem.

Thanks

Before tossing weight at the car I would check the allignment. A buddy of mine has one and out of the box the car was all over the place. Toe in on one side out on the other, the camber was way off....and not the same from side to side as well.

I would check all that stuff first....I bet that is where the problem is...And buy a new set of C-hubs...they are easy to bust.

I was thinking about picking one of these up for a stock touring car class. I will be running on carpet for a few more months, and parking lot racing for the spring and summer. Would this be a good investment for just getting into electric onraod, and being serious about racing?

The "S" really does work quite well. You can't really compare it to the TC considering it is 1/3 of the price, but you can upgrade to a TC if your heart desires. I think it is right on par with the TA-05.... if you're looking for good performance at a cheap price this car fits that scenario.

C Hubs you need the carbon graphite ones, dont bother installing the kit ones which are plastic.

You should probably get a spare set of C Hubs as well anyway, as well as some knuckles.

okay thanks for the reply
I am going to sound stupid but how many of these parts do I need that are on the car already, so I know how many to order, lol

when I order these from 3 racing or whoever the picture shows 2 of them, so the price is 16.67 for 2??

thanks mike

Usually when you buy C-Hubs or Knuckles they are sold in pairs.

One disadvantage to the HPI knuckles is that you get one rear hub carrier and one front steering knuckle together in a package. I've broken a lot more steering knuckles than rear hub carriers.

Note when he says pairs for C-Hubs that is one left and one right.

The 3 racing stuff is priced really well but keep in mind it is a trade off as they use cheaper aluminium which is softer (easier to bend) and a slightly heavier.

You should get spare C-Hubs um i front hubs and knuckles are the same thing?!?!?!?!?! I usually carry a few of each but im paranoid and hate borrowing stuff.

The aluminium stuff has the advantage of not breaking as much but the disadvantage of being bendable. If the aluminium parts get bent it tweaks the car and can often be hard to identify.
