does more rear toe-in give you higher exit corner speed?

We have a pretty good 19t class now. Lot of guys are getting bored with stock due to the high traction easy to drive thing. Might just try it myself soon. Looks like fun!!

TP - Thanks for helping me with diff adjustment.
Wow, my car now turns automaticaly through the corners.

I've now had it with composite bones. I'm going for MIP shiny bones.
It doesn't matter if I try not to hit anything if somebody just keeps hitting my car out of nowhere and breaks dogbones.

I wonder what will break with steel bones. A arms? Carriers?

Nontherless, racing is FUN !!!

Happy racing guys.

Actually, with steel CVD's, I'd say the next weakest link would be the main driveshaft. I've had friends who tried shiny CVD's with a front one-way & they ended up breaking main driveshafts. Personally, I can put up with changing CVD's, & the cost of the composite ones are much easier to deal with. And if I can't afford to do that, then I'll just use the shaft one-way, & use a regular diff up front.....

Would Ti drive shaft cure that problem?

Then what do you think is the next victim?

Default Chassis braces

Has anyone tried TC3 without the chassis stiffening braces? I assume that this modification would let the chassis flex a little bit more. I`m starting outdoors season and I think that flex is sometimes good for tarmac. If someone has tried this, please tell me your experiences.

Were you running stock or modified. It's possible it was stressed from a previous hit.

rcruv, a Ti shaft might not have any problem with breaking, but it'd very likely weigh considerably more than the stock one does, which might slow acceleration down a bit. As for any other things that might break, I'm really not sure.....

If you over tightened the diff it is possible to stress the plastic to point of breaking, and power being applied to it would be enough to finish breaking the outdrive.

I just basicly follow the instuctions for building and tightening the diff. Once the diff is in the car, I hold the front wheels and try turning the spur gear, and adjust it so that it does not slip. Then do the same for the back.
