I've just heard of people breaking so many parts on their tc3's when they put a one way in. And the one way is just so dang expensive that it's hard to bring my self to buy one. I am racing on carpet though, I still am winning my races at my track, and just about every person in 19t mod runs a one way. I can only think of two people who don't, me and one other guy, and we both run tc3's. The other guy who doesn't run one, has one, but it has a broken gear, he said I could try it if I bought a new gear for it, so I'll probably do that just to see if I start breaking all of the place. If I do start breaking all the time, than I'll remove the oneway.

The only pieces I broke because of the one-way were the composite front bones and then ONLY when I hit a dot and didn't get off the throttle - the wheels would spin way up and freewheel and then the shock of landing would twist the end off. I moved to aluminum or steel (with me, steel bones are better - they don't call me Boomer for nothin) and didn't have the same problem.

Of course, if I stayed off the dots, I didn't have the problem either. . .

Does the IRS solid front axle work like a one-way?

BlueRice901, that is normal. The cause of that is low voltage and there is nothing to prevent it. *TIP* Once it starts to slow down, turn off your car. Also make sure you fully charge your packs before running.

Rich, you be alot faster with a final drive ratio between 7.5-8.0. With the track we both run on, this would be ideal. I ran a low final drive ratio last monday ( somewhere like x< 7.3 ) using a monster and it seemed fast; but last wednesday, I ran a 8.03 final drive with the same motor and the car felt a lot better with punch coming out of the corners and overall speed around the 2 large sweepers at hobbyworld. My lowest lap time was 15.0 with an average time of 15.4, while other people were averaging 16.3's. Brotha Walter ran the same ratio and he clocked two 14.9's on that particular track design. That's pretty freakin fast while the mod guys were pulling mid to high 14's.

Default Jumping in

I've been trying to catch up on this thread from the beggining since who knows when, but there's just too much to read so I'm just going to jump in Anyways, not trying to switch the subject or anything, but do any of you race at So Cal? I'm going to head up there Thanksgiving weekend and want to run with you guys. Oh, and would you happen to know if they have a big race planned? Thanks-Mike

SoCal doesn't do a lot of "big" races, but during Fall and Winter, pretty much every Saturday is pretty danged big. Competition is usually very high so you can count on a pretty big race atmosphere.

There's a bunch of us here that either do or used to race at SoCal.
