This is for another racer here in Indianapolis. By my calculations, I'll catch Indy R/C Racer if I paint another 30 bodies

The team magic E4JS is about 5 mm to long for the HPI bodies to center the wheels properly. I could either hack the body, narrow the arms myself or try to find narrow control arms from another car.

Any ideas?

Some of the Pegasus bodies are bigger/longer and might be easier to mount

This is by far my favorite class to come along in a long time. I'm even digging the simple, yet stylish vintage paint styles. The round number plates realley make the bodies. With my win at round 8 of the Carolina Touring Car Series I was awarded another VTA body. I took that opertunity to make my TC5R a VTA car as well, so I have another paint job. The new TC5 paint job is up top, and I just has to put my last paint job up here again as well.

I wish I could make it up there for that race. I would really love the challange. I guess I'll just have to hang out here and hope Microman represents NC VTA racers well. Go get 'em Wes, smack someone down for me!

I dont know anything about the TM car but usually there are spacers that allow you to scoot the arms forward. The other thing is check the rear toe on the car. More rear toe will put the rear hubs forward. Im using the three degree rear toe block. You may or may not care for the changes to the cars handling.

Yeah, they're already at 3 degrees. I'll play around with my spare control arms when they arrive. It sure seems like a decent car though.
