Sorry. It is back. We have to run stick packs according to the rules here, so split packs are not an option.

My suggestion is trying the Standard World's Setup. Whenever we go to a big race, this is the setup the car has on it when we arrive. We make adjustments from it. It usually works just about everywere we go (with some small changes). If you just want to modify this setup, I would suggest laying the rear shocks down. you might try a red spring in the front or a green in the back. Personally, shock oil is gonna make the biggest difference.

If you choose to try the Standard World's Setup, my site has that and many more TC3 setups to check out.

Airwide: We did notice the stiff wheels make the car a little more responsive with a bit more steering, but not too much. Of course, your track surface might differ quite a bit from the massive traction SoCal has...

Oh ya, and, by the way, saw your site....nice!

I'm glad you liked it. My equipment haven't been updated in a while. I'm now using Advanced speedos and batteries and Reedy motors instead of the LRP stuff I used before.

I'm gonna take a lot of pictures at Procar Open this weekend and write a race report next week. A lot of good nordic drivers are attending the event. To name a few: Andres Myrberg(HPI/LRP), Mikael Fransson(X-Ray) and Steen Graversen(Schumacher/Orion).

Sorry...ya, you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader. I have a link (that somehow disappeared) on the home page now to the exact place on Adobe's site to download the Reader. It's FREE!!!! Get it and you should be able to download all the files you want...

Thanks for the info....

Default glitch

Helppp... I just put in an 11T into my TC3.. whenever I pull the throttle... my car glitches badly but if I pull the throttle slowly nothing happens...now is it because my receiver is too close to the motor or my motor has not been run in enuf or could it be the comm drop... I am using kinwald-trinity comm drop.... cant control it to go straight....

Setup

We race on an old skating rink and I'm looking for an edge. The track is about 50 feet corner to corner and about 15 feet from the middle of the straight to the same spot on the other straight. The track is about 8 feet wide everywhere. It's painted wood and very slick. You have to drift through the turns. The hot setup seems to be the tamiya rally block tread tires and no inserts. I have a p2k, 30t pinion and 72t spur. Any ideas are welcome. Thanks

Keyz28,

Are the Tamia tyres a controlled tyre? If not then try Schumacher mini pins in yellow compound with Sch blue inserts.

After that I would run with 2 liniters in the front shocks and I in the rear to give plenty of droop. Other than that start with the stock kit set up and make small changes from there.

Have fun on the slippy stuff. It's quite popular here in the UK in the winter. Too wet to run outside.

Default Setup

There are really no rules as the traction dictates speed. I'll try the schu pins. Most cars are tc3 racer kits with most setups running preloads or stiffer front springs and diffs adjusted tight.

Keyz28: GOOD NEWS!!! I have a setup on my site from Craig Drescher....it's a setup for a polished wood surface!!! Go figure!!!

You can get it from www dot competitionx dot com. Go to the R/C Tuning section and to the Racing Setups. Sorry if it's a bit slow...I just went and checked it (to see if I actually had that setup) and it appears to be slow tonite.

Too much info, I guess???!!!

BTW, there are tons of new setups for a whole bunch of different cars on my site now....Go give it a looksy and see if there is something anyone can use....

Spawn: DUMP THE COMM DROPS!!!! That's the first thing. While they may provide a tad more power, they can really gunk up a motor, and you are required to spray out the motor after EVERY SINGLE RUN!!! It could be the cause of your glitching. I would also try a different motor...this will eliminate the motor as the glitching problem. If it continues to glitch, try moving the electronics around. In the TC3, the order should be motor - ESC - reciever - servo. This is the best setup to keep wires short and keep crucial wires from crossing over each other, possibly causing glitches...
