Default Milled chassis

Hey guys,

I should have 8 Graphite chassis shipped to me this week to be milled. 3 of the 8 are already spoken for. I am hoping to have them back and ready to ship in about 7 to 10 days from now. PLease e-mail me if you want one and I'll hold one for you!!

Thanks,
Ray

Help guys!!

I just a new FTTC3 to replace my tired old one and its got the new white gears. I have a bunch of the old Grey gears all broken in-all in perfect condition. I run stock and sometimes 19 turn-no Mod. Which gears should I use-Grey or White for best speed and efficiency?

Thanks,
Ray

Either would be fine for speed and efficiency. The white gears may last longer (durability) than the grey ones especially in a nitro TC3.

Run the white gears, they free up the drivetrain more and are quieter for some reason.

Mike D, sorry for a possible silly question, what was the surface that setup was for? Rubber / Foam tires?

Ray,
Run the grey gears. The white gears were the first batch of replacements and a prone to breaking. Probably would never break either gear in stock or 19 turn but at least you'll have peace of mind. Btw guys... Buy the chassis from Ray! You won't find a better milling job for the money. I got one earlier this year and love it. Balances the car and makes it feel more planted to the track.

hey mike good to see your winning setup, what do you use for toe in/out for front and rears, and did you mill your chassis all the way to the middle or just about .1 inch?
thanks again

ray, how much do you charge for one of those chassis'?
also, roughly how much would international shipping be (to Australia)?

thanks

Front 0-0.5 toe out, Rear 2 toe in (R block and R+2+0 block)

I milled the chassis so the batteries were 1mm away from the driveshaft when mounted in the foward battery position.

I'm pretty sure they do. But only the new edition team kits will. The old ones have that composit or graphite shaft. Personally I like the composite and graphite shafts for stock better because they're lighter.

Mike, not wanting to steal all you setup secrets, but what did you do to the car as the temperature dropped during the day....since you couldnt change tires, did you have to goto springs/shock oil????

Thanks for all this great info to chew on...

Yeah, I have Factory Team TC3 and I changed the blue alloy main shaft to Shooter Racing graphite main shaft. They are nicer.

Default chassis modification

I was wondering if most were running the car with the battery tray mod in order to get the batts closer to the center line or are they running the chassis stock.Want to know the benefits to running it closer to the centerline in handling and what are the factory guys doing.I know cyrul is running his car like this.Anyone else?Thanks guys!
