I dunno, you think a TC3 would have a closer setup then the Evo 3? I have Rod's setup from last year, along with TTLocal setup from some of the guys there too.

Gary, I have a diff I can tighten & lockl, and go to this parking lot you speaketh of, and we can both try different adjustments, then you'd haev some notes whjen you go to the Reedy. You'd probably have to give me a ride though, I saw the place last time i drove back up here

Well, I just got back from Trackside. I had the points lead wrapped up last week, but ended up extending it this week.

Just an idea until Team PRP finishes the gear brace: I put washers between the screw and the one way gear two races ago. I noticed that the screws were ended up leaving indents on the one-way gears, and the washers should help to spread the load from the screw to a wider area. I haven't roasted the one-way gear since then, so it may be to early to tell if it works, so far so good though.

TC3 - Please tell me you are using a quality tool set, and not the L-wrenches?!

Steve - on my first chassis, I used Losi thin tire glue. I ran a bead across the chassis, and smoothed it out with my finger. I don't really suggest this, but it works. After doing the whole chassis, I had a layer of glue thick enough on my finger that a few seconds under hot water, I was able to peal it off.

I used a thing called the "Microbrush" on the second chassis. Although I went through about 3-4 of the brushes, it was a little less messy on the fingers.

AJ's Raceway rocks as far as the surface and the barrier goes. I don't think it's possible to break ANYTHING on that track. It really is glass smooth, but I would suggest at least talking to the race director before you run. I don't know how they run the electric races, but when I went down there for nitro, I was told conflicting stories from the owner/race director on how qualifying is run. ( I asked if it was IFMAR, he said yes. Later, he told me it was a qualifying race, but your on your own clock. I asked if it was alright to start a little behind the guys to have a clean track with all the banging that was going on. He told me I better not, because it's a qualifying race. I asked again if it was IFMAR, and we were on our own clock, and he said yes. )
yes im using quality tools i hve good tools thxs for info

Default Dog Tracking

Can anybody give me any tips on how to eliminate the dog track effect my Pro 4 has. The front end points to the left and the rear points to the right when standing behind it while running. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It didn't seem to do this the first time out, why would it develop over time?

Everything is cool. My Jr Crewchief (7 year old son that was trying to help) got his grubby little hands on the correct piece and had taken it to his room when it was bedtime.

Car is built and ready to rock. I have to say this is the best sedan I have ever built!!!!!! The quality is spot on as is the design. I cannot wait to hit the track tomorrow. Thanks HPI for giving racers a reason to come back!!!! The original RS4 with gearbox and all is where I got my sedan start, up through all the evolutions till the Pro2. Its nice to be back to smooooooth shocks again!!

Good luck to all on their racing ventures this weekend!
