Yes Larry and Schreff's cars were very good. Congrats on the runs. My cars were also very good.(almost Identical setups) WAY better then the driver. Still managed 2 A-main appearances in 17.5 foam and rubber. 7th in foam/5th in rubber. I can't wait till the next big race...

I know Larry and Schreff run the Foam top deck with stock rubber wings and I run the med rubber top deck with stk Rubber wings. Either way works really.

These changes gave me a quicker cornering with no sacrificing of its good balance.

topracingusa.com has the foam kits in stock. Call or email Michael and he can help you out.

The quality of the kit is very good. Parts fit and finish is outstanding and the slop found in most kits is nonexistent in mine. There are some very nice features on the car that make maintenance easy and limits the stocking of excess spare parts. A lot of thought went into the design of this car and it seems to be paying off very well.

It's what you say. It's even stronger than the Xray i had.
All the parts fit very well and all parts are looking also very good.
The way the caster blocks and the uprights are mounted is just great.
The pins stay in the arms and don't come loose as the ones in the Scythe.

So, Is the verdict that the Foam chassis the best for Rubber Carpet, or is it just a matter of changing the top decks?

We have 1 foam and 2 rubber kits in stock. they may go quick we have 100 guys showing up to the track this weekend for the TZGP. the foam car is great, and I have been running Xray 6 degree castor blocks on my foam car, just a slight mod required.

I love my rubber car.
I race now indoor but also outdoor it went great.
Maybe I buy the medium wings and medium top deck. Just to make it a bit more aggressive.
I get my steel spool cubs tomorrow. Than I'm ready for the race of Sunday.
Just made a small change to my gearing and speedo to get some more power to go faster.
My goal is A main in the 10,5 lipo class.
