Rob....I actually Won the C-main....only after Jim got his car stepped on and then screwed by the same marshal on the last lap. The car was really good all weekend I was able to get 20 laps in every qualifier but the last one when I had a run in with a marshal's foot...lol. Going into the race I didnt really know just how well the car was going to work on higher bite and after the race I can say that I was really impressed and it worked great and I just wish that I would have worked as well as it did, I made a few to many little mistakes that cost me over time. Now going into any other bigger race I will have a better feeling about the car now.

Hi,

Im going to start running mod on a tight concrete track, are there any parts I should add (delrin outdrives?) to the car or any setup changes that are different to stock?

Cheers,

Mossie

Yeah, you need to make the upperdeck mod, run a front spool, and get the BRP front TC3 bumber.

Default SETUP QUESTION FOR NORCAR RACE

Kevin would you mind post your set up for the race?

I have been struggling to get the car to turn in on med to high bite and I was wondering what you and the other pro 4 racers were running at Norcar race.

Default Thad or Eric...swaybars question.

I noticed on some of the carpet setups you note a 2mm front swaybar.

Did this come from another kit or different car? Or was it a one off?

I am trying to locate a 1.8mm and 2mm swaybar that would work..Any one have any suggestions?

I would rather not bend one out of wing wire.

Jamie

Nexus....I would say high bite. But its really not that far of from what I run week to week. A little stiffer rear spring and a little less toe-in in the rear.

Default sway bar?

Kevin

Did you modify a sway bar from another model or did you bend it from wing wire.

Jamie, you will need to go to the local hobby store or hardware store and buy some piano wire the desired size and bend your own as there are no other sizes on the market right now. Its not too hard to do if you have a nice pair of vise grips and some time to make sure all the bends are correct. If you go much bigger than the 1.6mm stock one you will need to drill out the gear case where the bar goes though with the retainer installed and the set screws backed off and also drill out the aluminum balls for the wire to go though.

Sorry I got the main thing wrong, but hey, at least I went up instead of down

The Bud's TC3 .078 sway bar fits perfectly, and is also just about 2mm in diameter. I ran it this weekend.
