PW-

Looks like the Picture has been Cut and you see maybe 1% of the car!!! since there have been a bunch of people talking about the car in the Forum but none of them seem to know how to post a picture will you give me permission to post the pictures that I have of the car. Warpspeed needs come on here and talk seriously about his new chassis. It is is a very cool looking car and has a lot of promise.

It looks really nice. one question though, can the batteries be moved front or back like on a stock chassis?

Hey guys....Some of you may know me from the Schumacher Corner, but for those of you who don't, mine name is Paul Wynn and I'm the Team Manager for Schumacher USA. I will also be helping Warpspeed racing with their product promotion. Warpspeed Racing currently produces a chassis conversion for the current Schumacher Mission that many of our team drivers are using including myself with great success.

Victor, aka Mr Warpspeed has asked me to post a pick of the new "DEMON" TC3 conversion. This pic is a early prototype version that in testing has had great results in its first outting.

This post is just a test for me and I will post more info and pics in the near future.

Looks good,Can I make a suggestion? Make the chassis setup for regular TC3 steering rack or NTC3 steering linkage.It would only require two more holes but it would allow us racers to try either style.Just a thought

I will get into more details very soon, but here is a few.

The batteries can't be moved forward because it was decided that the battery placement is best between the original slots (half a cell forward) and anymore or less moves it to far forward or to far back. Also the testing is being done with the new 3300's and these batteries weight 1.5oz more than ultra's. 3300's were used by almost all cars in the stock & modified A-main's in Cleveland so Warpspeed felt testing would be best with 3300's. This is the reason I've been given by Warpspeed for battery placement.

I believe he is looking into the NTC3 steering option already.

Default Why

did Warpspeed switch the motor to the other side.
I thought by now everyone was convinced that this does not work!

See EvoI +II and the Alex Racing cars.
They all followed the TC3 eventually!

Pizza

Craig,
I didn't notice a whole lot more flex, and it won't matter in stock racing (all I do). Most (if not all) of the team racers that have done this mod don't use any additional bracing, even for mod motors.

Off subject, do you guys think there is really 1.5oz. differance between 3000's & 3300's? We weighed half a dozen soldered packs at our track before Cleveland (all Sanyos) and the differance between 2400's, 3000's, & 3300's was only a few grams +/-. We all felt that could simply be which battery bars you chose, and how much solder was used. What's the scoop?

Also, how do you guys really feel on carbon fibre chassis for the TC3? Alot of companies make them, but no one in our area runs them, and I was warned off of IRS's early on by a sponsered driver (I really wanted one too darn it, they do look sweet!)

I'm not looking to start trouble either guys, just gathering info for myself.

Hi everybody,

What is the best grease/oil to lube a oneway with? I siezed a bearing in mine and was wondering if I used the wrong lube.

I've been using bearing oil.

Thanks

Default Warpspeed chassis

Paul,

Hey dude!!! I have to agree that some testing with the motor on the other side might be valid. The new TB EVO III-which handles very well (Derek Hung ran one at Champs and car looked awesome!!) now has batteries on left. Buying a new chassis that torque steers would SUCK!!

Also-keep the chassis as narrrow as possible to keep from rubbing and STIFF as well. Basically the battery should be millimeters from the driveshaft.

If need be-maybe make chassis extra thick and mill down areas to mount diff cases, etc.

Pretty much everyone serious about racing TC3 now is narrowing and lightnening the tub chassis (myslef included)-so the Warpspeed chassis had better incorporate all these things!! WHich-I know is why your here!!!

Ray

Hi guys. Greetings from Malta.

This is incredible. When I saw the picture of the Warspeed car it reminded me of a similar project i made about a year ago. I still have the chassis, and it had all the same features - cells on the right - motor on the left. I used a Predator motor clamp, and steering gear off an old Yoke.

Hi Paul. We're still at it here in Malta. Josh is into real race cars too and is presently in the garage rebuilding a gearbox.

We still both race RC. He still runs a TC3 and is presently leading the National championship in mod. I still run the MR4 in stock.

Good to see you're still at it too. Maybe we'll meet again some time. We plan on doing a couple of meetings in UK in August, after our championships have finished.

We ran the TC3 with the fan today. I don't know if I'm imagining but it seems that duration has suffered slightly. I wired it up to the receiver batt socket.

Anyone got any ideas?

regards

Joe from sunny Malta.
