Default WARPSPEED 12

The 12 scale is not available yet. We are working on it.
Hopefully, by next month, we are still testing.

I guess I don't understand why the warspeed chassis is the way to go. Why is it so much better? What is wrong with the original chassis? Basically why should I spend so much money on a allready good car. I am not trying to be a DI-K I am just curious.

The WARPSPEED CHASSIS is a graphite chassis. It will not warp
under heat, like the molded chassis. The heat from the motor and
batteries will warp the molded chassis. My chassis is perfectly
balanced. It comes with an upperdeck, which makes the chassis
super stiff. Associated does make an excellent car. We have
made a conversion kit to convert your TC3 into a
WARPSPEED DEMON. The car handles awesome with these
new features. It comes with the swing rack holes and also
the batteries are moved in closer to the drive shaft.

Hi Jack Smash amd Dingus -
Nah i'm not selling them, it's just a one-off thing for my self!! but it's really not that hard to make a top deck. Mine was laser cut with the rest of the main chasis etc, but it would not be very hard to hand cut it with a dremel or whatever.

Default warpspeed demon

Did I hear that the battery position is also centered? What I mean is the original factory chassis has a front and back position. I have heard that the demon has the battery position inbetween the two locations.

Default Warpspeed chassis

Theisgroup-yup-they centered the batteries somewhere between fully back and fully forward. I am sure its feels like a split pack-3 forward, 3 back.

The batteries are centered on the WARPSPEED DEMON for
better weight distribution.

Does the battery mod (cut out on the ctr brace) on the chassis throw off the tweak ie weight distribution?

I think you are looking at 2 different thing. moving the battery will never get rid of the "tweek" in your chassis. It may compensate for it. But to what extent? Moving the battery more center (front/back) helps with weight distribution. It seems that many have found that the batteries all the way forward give too much weight to the front and batteries all the way back takes away too much weight from the front. So this will help weight distribution and ultimately weight transfer(front/back). I think moving the batteries more inboard help reduce the weight difference between the 2 sides of the car. with more mass further from the center point, the more the mass affects the car. so the batteries more inboard just help ballance right to left.

But tweek is tweek and moving the batteries does not change that.

part number is 6909 for the bearings for the steel diff. And if you are using the irs alum. ones, then you would use the same ones.
