Go to Tony Phalens site and try the Kinetix setup. I personally saw him run with a 10 turn and he was super fast!

51: I'll be running Open Mod. I think there will be some international guys there, but probably not as many as normal. Everyone is really beat from the double worlds.

I have never used one.

Some people really like them, but from what i have heard they rarely make it into the A-main at big events.

PM me if you want to know where the best price is...

Anybody seen this or knows if somebody's selling it.
Looks very similar to IRS chassis.

hmm the chassis is nice, but i dont like the pink anodizing, or the lack of battery strap. The transponder mount looks very similar to the IRS one, but the IRS kit has a batery strap not tape.

Uhm.... maybe can be the KAI's chassis for the TC3, maybe some of Japan can put some light on us about this chassis.

Looks good, I'm so tired of too much blue (sheeeeesh!) maybe some green can be ok.

They really love pink, don't they?

I heard that the chassis is from hotbodies but nobody knows if it's being sold or not.

Just looking at teh electronics on that chassis and it seems that there are two huge capacitors on the speedo, but also a small one on the receiver - what does a cap do for the receiver?

Normally, I agree with you on that, but in the case of the TC3, the battery side of the car is heavier than the motor side, so less weight by the elimination of battery strap and posts would be a good thing. Anyone who has ever set their TC3 up on a digital scale setup board knows this to be true. If you look at many of the pro level racers, they like to put weight in the little slot beside the motor, or they somehow lose weight on the battery side of the car to balance it out.

I agree with you about the weight issue BigDog, but I was merely giving a personal opinion; I would much rather have the battery strap and pins than have to tape the cells in, and use new tape every time. Its a laziness thing...

I have a question for anyone to answer.

My front MIP CVD's are binding. I pulled them out. completly tore them down and noticed that the coupling that fits inside the axles, even when I re-greased it, seem to bind, bad. Any suggestions on fixing this? Should I put the coupling to a dremel and smooth it out? Has anyone experience this?

Thanks
