Default New arms from Dumas!!!

Guys,

At the US Indoor Champs I roomed across the hall from Mike Dumas-who won the Champs in TC mod!!!! he showed me his TC3 with his machined arms, and front spindles and rear hubs. It was literally the most slop free suspension system I have felt. Like NO slop, no play. Mike said that the material he uses (a high end delrin type plastic) is nearly indestructible-so no more stripped out ball stud and shoulder screw holes in front steering knuckles!!! His big points he told me was that the fron spindles have equal throw right and left and have more throw than stock!! but do not alter the geometry like when you put Losi steering blocks on!! And the rear hubs have an additional hole to put the camber link into. The steering and rear hubs work on a Losi too.

Just a FYI for people looking for a stronger suspension system for Tc3, but dont want to run aluminum arms and spindles!!

I ordered a set to try and will have race with them in two weeks. I'll give a long-term test report in a few weeks!!!

Ray

There is proof of why you should not drink and surf the net at the same time.

Drink responsibly people!!!!

With all this stuff about the warpspeed chassis makes you think if it is all big scam

This is the same guy that PW had to quiet earlier about the new chassis, and if my memory is correct the guy that got caught putting a 19T arm in his stock motor at cleveland.

My name is Victor. I am the owner of WARPSPEED RACING.
Last night I tried to put pics up of the WARPSPEED TC DEMON
and details about the chassis. My computer crashed and only
my post subject appeared. If you would like some pics and
more info of the WARPSPEED TC DEMON, email me a
warpspeedracing@aol.com.
I will keep trying to send pics out, so stay tuned.

Default WARPSPEED TC Prototype results

At the 5th Annual TurkeyShootout in Florida, Ryan Rhodes
who is sponsored by WARPSPEED RACING ran the prototype
TC DEMON. He came in 1st place in Mod foam tires.
In the 19 turn, he came in 3rd place with foam tires.
Art Jensen who was supposed to run the other prototype
TC DEMON was taken ill, and handed the car over to
Steven Baker, who qualified in 4th and took 1st place to
win the Stock Class. The car was AWESOME!!!!!

The TC DEMON is a 3mm with a 3mm upper plate to
eliminate flex. The batteries have been moved from
the left side to the right side of the chassis. The
batteries are more centered on the WARPSPEED chassis
for better balance and handling.

The thing with most manufacturers racing cars is that you really dont need to spend money on "hop ups" like titanium this or aluminum that. My FTTC3 is bone stock. I might switch to IRS aluminum outdrives cause i'm swearing out the plastic ones quickly on our bumpy outdoor track. Other than that the car is a national champ out of the box.

ya i saw those on his car when i was checking it out this past weekend. he told me he designed them but had someone else do the machining. those arms and knuckles look unbelievable! good luck breaking them, they look super stiff. so you can order them ray? if so from where and how much. i would love to get a set. btw dumas broke his r-1 of all things,in the mod sedan main sunday. good thing it didnt happen the week before in cleveland lol.
