pimpedaccord:

how can you be so opinionated? have you driven the car?
the warpspeed demon outhandles the Associated car. I have the demon and it is kicking ...... out here in europe. and the way that i read on the post, it is kicking......out there in the states too. the way i see it is that you seem to be alittle jealous. and another thing, this car is not slapped together, it is well engineered.
DO YOUR HOMEWORK.

Default Warpspeed Chassis

Here is my point, Pimpedaccord; I have run both cars for a long time. I am an average driver at best and I am quite a bit faster and more consistant with this chassis. This car is more stable and alot easier to drive than the stock car. This is the testimony we have gotten from everyone who has bought one. Some how, it generates more traction with the exact same setup. Yet, its stiffer. I have not heard a single person who has had both cars say that the stock car handles better and go back to it. Not too bad for a car thats just "slapped together" as you love to say. So if you are so hung up on .4mm, so be it. but please don't go around bashing my product without having even run it. If you bought one and ran it and hate it, thats one thing, but you you are posting damaging comments without any grounds or basis to do so. Have a wonderful day!!!

Wohhhhhhhhhh...

Hang on everybody. No need to get all worked up. I think the point that "PIMPEDACCORD" is trying to make is the Warpspeed roll center is slightly different than the stock TC3 chassis and if the area around the diff housings were cut down a little the car "MIGHT" be even better than it already is.

I am sure it is great car. The machine work is "EXCELLENT" and all of the ideas behind the car seem right on in my eyes......

Hmmm... well the Warpspeed car might just be faster on carpet, but if you're talking about rubber tire/asphalt, then you're more than welcome to come get some of this Mission in Memphis.

How could it have been 'slapped together'? it took them forever to produce a picture of it.

Do you understand how these work? The angle of the lower arm(which changes due to ride height) also determines roll center; not just the top arm angle. So to maintain the same Roll Center the ride height has to decrease which makes the chassis drag the carpet more or DQs you OR to maintain ride height the RC goes up and the CG too. Sounds like a winner!

No you would have .5 per side.

The R2+0 blocks give you 1 deg. per side and the losi 1 deg blocks take off .5 per side so that would equal .5 per side.....

NO RBLove was right. You will have 1 per side, The Losi blocks will add or take away 1 degree of toe on the side placed.
If you have the 3 + 2 block then you have 3 degree of toe per side and the 2 + 0 is two degrees per side and so on and so forth.

Put the car on a Hudy setup system and you'll find out for yourself.

YES , the Losi 1 deg blocks take .5 or 1/2 deg. per side.

The Losi 1/2 deg. blocks take away .25 or 1/4 deg. per side.

the end result is the Losi 1 deg blocks take 1 total deg. from the entire rear toe, and the 12 deg. blocks take 1/2 total deg. or rear toe away....or add it depending on how they are installed....
