Actually 100x46 is a good sized track for electric over here. See you are Cali though probably is small to you guys

Infact, the red car wouldn't have gotten by me at the end except he smacked a wall and flew across the track and landed in front of my car lol. He was in second anyway so it didn't matter, but I was happy they couldn't lose me at the end I took it a little easy at first because I was scared of traction rolling, You can see me driving a alittle cautious at first.... but after I knew the setup change was good I put the pedal to the metal! Only shaft car there, Only Tamiya, and only plastic tub car hehe TB03 POWER! Enjoy!

Thanks, and yes the track was a little tight. The lanes where only 8 ft I think lol. Made for some tight racing but I love super technical layouts. Let me know how your testing goes, particularly with what you observe with chassis flex with the graphite tub. TIA and goodluck Chris!

Tamiya POWER
Well my high traction setup's for asphalt actually promote rotation in the corners. Its what I'm usually looking for since I turn my fastest lap times when the car is twitchy/loose. The video I posted was on high traction asphalt that you will probably never encounter anywhere lol. I'm not exaggerating when I say this.....the Coliseum has so much grip that your tennis shoes stick to the track when you walk on it!! Makes for some super fast racing, but setup is so so important there. But because I was limited by the TB03's chassis flex, It made it frustration to try to get the car to turn without traction rolling, or not get too lazy by going to soft on the springs.

Thanks for the compliments

Not sure If I'll be at the TCS finals or not but I will try to make it.

Good run by the way.

Thanks a lot Jimmy

Yeah I always figured sealer on asphalt would make it get really slick, but maybe they use another technique out there or what not. Thanks for the tip, I'll plan a couple of setups in advance.

Yeah hope to see you out there. I bought my plane ticket yesterday

Tag had the bright yellow car that was bashing into everyone...LOL! j/king.....it was a tough race with everyone being so close in speed and the lanes being narrow, very difficult not to do a little grinding here and there.

Timmie nice run there. I notice in the final minutes that your speed seems to be the same or even faster with the winning car.

Default TB-03 at West Coast RC Raceway

WOW we socal boys hit the jackpot! I finally got some time to run at our indoor asphalt track.. YIKES! the place is dialed.

high bite indoor asphalt. HUGE track.. id say about 130' straight with curbs (Tamiya USA style).

the graphite tub was PERFECT here. it was more of a shakedown run than testing. i forgot my RCGT tires so i ran an RCGT set up but with RP36s. cant wait to go back. next time im bringing a video camera too...

YAH IT IS! i told you to dump that TA05.... in 17.5, TB-03 is the car to have.

they have the lap counter on.. so you can hear your laptimes.. see if the changes took place or not.

i have your sticker sheets scheduled to mail out tomorrow. sent you a PM.
