But seriously, i am still amazed at how much of number junkies rc guys are (me included). Most of these numbers have very little bearing on how the track performance is going to be because of the sheer number of variables involved.

My lust for numbers is undying .... which is why as soon as i can afford it i'm going to get a Novak Sentry (Pablo Diablo's fault ahhaha he put me onto this product) and track real time performance numbers over time and put them up on the web.
If you need "numbers" the Data Sentry Logger is the ticket! We used one this summer at the Indy Velodrome. You could see the rpm spikes when you hit a bump and the rear wheels left the track momentarily. Lots of good info can be obtained from this product.

Do you remember some of the auguments and rumors we used to hear in the backyard matcher days? All the stories about how this person didn't have an aircon room for all their matches and the numbers were "inflated". Its amazing how much difference it can make.

I am amazed how much people go on about the data sentry.. I would have though that the eagle tree system would be better since they did a wide range of data logging equipment. I haven't used either so I don't know. I always use lap times for my ultimate form of evaluation but testing numbers at home can certainly point you in the right direction. Its interesting though how some numbers when too large can be a negative.

I need an info...

As anyone here, I've broken few "C" carrier at the front.
Losi make a nice package with Carrier and Spindles. It happen that the spare box is full of spindles but no Carrier.

I know that Cyclone users convert their front to Losi theory...

Is there another brand of "C" that can be used instead of losi? 6 degrees will be my favourite choice...

I'd like to avoid to use aluminium ones...

Thanks

The associated TC4 (tc3 c-hubs are the same) c-hubs will work with with the losi, i think there was a company that made aluminum c-hubs at some point for the losi.

A couple words of warning when getting any aluminum suspension components: 1) if they bend and you don't know your performance will suffer and you won't know why. 2) more than likley the suspension was designed with various components that "give" or "fuses" as referred to by some, aluminum parts don't give like plastic so if you would normally break something that you replace with aluminum something else will break.

Try a Parma bumper and also make sure the axles are cut down to be flush with the wheel nuts.

Thanks to all.

Honestly speaking I didn't broke so many parts with this car.

It happens lately, into a less than properly cared track, to kiss to deeply the wall...

So all my right side 6° "C" went history, and I discover I've to buy a huge collection of parts I don't really need.

I don't understand why Losi sells "packaged" items... like the 41-42 spurs...

oh, well....
