I just realized this problem to and its only on the right side of the car. You push the shock back and it bounces forward. The shock it totally hitting the castor block.

I dont think it effected anything, but I really dont know. Anyone else realize this?

General question > On big sweeping tracks you want to use more Castor and on smaller tighter tracks you want to use less Castor?

Thanks...

For my TC3, it is binding aganist the Caster Block on both side. I'm using the 0 degree caster block for now. I waiting for the 4 degree caster block to come in at the local hobby store. Maybe with 4 degree it will solve this problem because it is tilted towards the back.

boomer - I haven't tried that set up yet, I will though. My car is pretty hooked now and I don't want to change it until after our big race this weekend.

Craig.

I just read your bit in this thread about how great your car is.

I have also just read your bit in the X Ray thread.

So if your TC3 is so good, which I have no doubt it is, why do you want to buy an X Ray.

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

Yes, that is theoretically correct no matter what car you’re talking about.

one question on the locked front diff. Will it work equally as well with a stock motor? I printed out Barry Bakers set up, looks good but I was wondering if in Stock sedan with this set up, mainly the diff locked, if it will work.

I'm running stock on it. I think it works great - really well balanced all the way through the turns.

I think I asked this b4, but what about the center one way with the locked diff?

Any ideas? I won't be able to try it for a few weeks.

whe i ran tc3's i use the center one way as a tuning tool. with the center one way i was able to roll better through highspeed corners, w/o the center one way i was able negotiate tighter sections of track due to increase weight transfer when i let off the throttle. and it also made it feel like a little more steering in the middle of the corner.

Johnbull-I have owned almost every car out there thats readily available.I like trying new stuff.It always makes me go make and look at the TC3 differently.The bad part about the Xray is that its almost $600 for the EVO2 and the C-hub conversion.So I think until I win the lottery its out for now.I have decide to get a new FTC3.
