Heres a very intersteting Tc3 vs. Losi comparison. At our last race-our fastest guy with a Losi was getting beat (by me) and he wanted to go faster. he ran our A-main NAts and Snowbirds driver's car, motor and battery. The car was a dialed Tc3, the batteries 1.17 SMC and the motor was his A-main Nats motor!!!

He TQ'd the race!!! So for the A-main-he put the battery and motor in his Losi G+ (which is very good) and we rolled it out the same as the Tc3 and he went 3 tenths slower per lap!!!

So on this latest layout of our track-the TC3 had a decided advantage over the Losi in a big way!!!

I am currently in a personal battle between a Losi G+ and my old trusty TC3.

I had previously run a Losi and found that I couldn't even get it close on speed to my TC3, so it soon became my son's car. It works for him since he is only 7 and just learning to drive.

Recently I purchased a Losi G+ from a local racers who had won many events. I knew this car was good and fast. This last Sunday I alternated running this car and my TC3.

My first two runs were with the Losi. The car felt good, but just looked slow. The lap times where nowhere near where I wanted them, about 4 tenths slower than I expected.

My third run I put the TC3 out there and got much closer to the lap times than I had with the Losi. I was pretty convinced that the TC3 was faster, but decided to put the Losi out for the main.

In the main, I ran a lap only 2 hundredths slower than my best lap in the TC3.

This just tells me that the two cars require different driving styles to get the best out of them. The TC3 loves being thrown into the corners and accelerating out of them. The Losi requires a more gentle touch to keep the speed up through the corners.

My opinion right now is that the TC3 is a better car for me. My driving style matches this car. The Losi is a great car too, and if I spent the amount of time with that car that I did with my TC3 I would probably go just as fast with it.

I've seen enough of the big races where the car manufacturers are fairly represented and it all comes down to a driver knowing how to drive his (or her) car.

GOTPEZ-- exactly!! The Losi likes to be driven and the TC3 likes to be "whipped" 2 different styles.....

Default Yokomo one way

I just got the Yokomo one way today. I wanted to know what type of grease should I use with this since the instructions are not in English. Does the Steatlh lube work for this or should I use something else?

You should probably use serpent one-way lube or some other "one-way" specific lube.....
