Hey guys just thought i would post my progress report on the SD.
80x32ft CARPET track 8ft lanes
Stock motors rubber tires
Ok i have completed a 6 race sereis and now im 2 races into a new 8 race sereis. The car has not failed me in any of the 8 complete race days i have raced it. I have also been out to some open practice nites where put through about 4 race days worht of use on the car.
The car has only broke in practice and both times while goofing around.
TOTAL DAMAGED PARTS:
-2x front right knuckles
-1x left c-hub
-1x rear right arm(with hing pin)
I might add that 3parts broke in one crash and that was due to a 2x4 track board being dislodge by 1inch and stickin out into oncoming traffic. what should have just been a tap and slide along a board broke the car instead. So basically 2 crashes took the above parts. The first and worst crash came before i had added a full width bumper.
On the track the car is supper quite, i have not expereiced the chattering from the front drive train that some of you speak of. Basically any noise i hear is from the odd old pinion gear i may install. The car really seems to react to the small changes i make in setup and overall is an easy car to drive.
My best improvement to the car was the addition of a full width bumper i make with an old Buds kydex bumper. This gives you the confidence to drive hard and not worry to to much about the odd tap or hit ripping your front end off.
The only hop ups on the car where to lighten the car. Tobee alloy drive line shafts, and derelin stifner posts. I plan to get the graphite center shaft that ways more then half as much as the stock shaft.
I have had great luck with the car in stock and plan to to swap positions with my tc3 that i currently use for the 19T foam class.
Anyway thats my story.
