No really, my car has 2* toe front and rear, so when I get stuck in a board and put in reverse....the car handles the same going backwards

Hey
i was just wondering how well your fan works behind the motor and is it sucking heat away from or blowing cool air towards the motor.

they also look like a very well designed chassis. Will you be selling them in Australia.

Anyone else use the Titanium Racing Stealth CVDs ?

They are incredibly low-weight, and look the business too

Yeah, I've been using EJ's Reedy setup also, and it's pretty damn good. Changing little things for track conditions, and that's it.

I gave up on the Tekin in the 198 software days. I was thinking of putting it back in, since they have the Vegas 200 software now. Seems to be equal to an SPX now. I'll definitely let you know if I find a faster set-up.

I'm very close to EJ's Reedy setup w/324 front springs.

RS settings are:
18 drag
10 neutral
profile 3
cutoff 2
timing boost 25
turbo full
delay .3
17.5 Duo 0* timing on can
FDR 5.0

13.5 FDR is 6.9, same settings.

Most are running these RS settings, give it a try and LMK if you have a faster setup

They are a top bit of kit,very low weight,they allow a little more wheel angle befor the chatter starts to kick in.

They weren't ready to deal with the demand for the car. Call Michael at TOP USA, I'm sure he can help you out.

I bought my spares when I first got the car and haven't used any of them yet. Not a bad problem to have.

I've made some big mistakes, and I've been hit pretty hard. Still no broken parts. Last week, I tried to slide my car through an 18 inch opening at full speed......... I missed. My car moved a 4inx4inx15 ft PVC pipe that was velcroed to the carpet. NO broken parts. I do like to have spares on hand though. Still haven't shaken off my TC3 and early RDX days.
