A front spool would be cool, wouldn't it?

Especially if it were ready and could be tested before the reedy race.

The stock setup worked pretty well on a tight, indoor asphalt with Sorex 36R tires. Go back a few pages, there was a few setups posted....

Try replacing your ball cups with either Dubro ends, or ends like the one that is on the bell cranks.

Mine wobbles, not terribly, but enough for me to notice when I spin the car on the bench. I've noticed NO ill effects when running the car.

Ray....To me it does not look any worse then what the average TC3 has. I dont think you need to worry about it much.

Yes the Chassis sits nice and flat without the Upper Deck. I am building step by step per the Kit manual, so I haven't made it to the Shocks yet.

Everything that mounts to the Chassis was tightened in a cross pattern. I even tried leaving the Camber link mounts loose on the Gear Boxes (thinking warping was here) but to no avail.

Going to contact HPI and see if they will warranty the Deck. I hate to pay for another one and have the same problem occur.

Thanks,

Ray, the shocks are a
quicky. Remember this, once you get
the shaft 1/2 in, it's all
over!
