if i will use a hand held metal saw, and do the same thing! will it be possible??

i got no dremel!
that could do it if the piece of screw is protruding outside the servo mount, if not you will damage/scratch your mount. go to your LHS, or tracks, I'm sure somebody will lend you a hand.

Default Rear Toe Help

Have a problem I wonder if anybody else has run into. While helping a buddy get his car handling better, came across a problem with the rear toe. He bought the car used and the previous owner had a "R" instead of "R+2+3" in the rear position. Replaced it with "R" in the front, "R+2+3" in the rear. Check toe with Integy alignment gauge, now right wheel has 1.5 deg toe, left has 4.5, for a total of 6 deg toe on the rear. Thought maybe a bent hinge pin, replaced, no change. Replaced left control arm, no change. Tried another set of arm mounts, same thing. Only thing haven't tried is new hub carrier. Anybody have any thoughts? Thanks

Nitromike,

This can happen pretty easily when you are putting the hinge pins and arms back in their place while re-assembling, be very careful when doing this be sure not to squeeze and get a bad fit otherwise it will mess up the toe, take the car apart put the pins into the outer block and slide the arms on then evening slide the hinge pins into the back bracket being aware to do it evenly, sometimes takes a couple of times to get it right...

HPH,
TigeRyan

Default older rear upright

about 2 years ago there was a large run of rear uprights produced that screwed up toe adjustments. i think it was the right side upright & it would add like an extra 1.5 degrees on that side. also check the hinge pin carriers ("R" and the other one), the holes that the hinge pins fit into become streched out after time and the toe will become inconsistant. i run the "f" block in place of rear (it subtracts 1 degree on both sides) then the "R-2+2". this make the rear a little loose with rubber tires but cuts down scrub with foams

when I run my car w/ b50 on 16 cells, I can't even get it up to 5mph w/ out it spinning
and I'm REALLY smooth
I even set the throttle to only give it enough power to reach 20mph max
w/ all the cells, I added WHITE springs (40lb)
think those are too strong?
any other setup tips? (toe/camber) ?

Default springs for tc3

I wanted to try out some different springs for my tc3 - I just have the stock ones. But the full spring set from associated seems kind of expensive ($35) - especially when you only get one pair of each, so you'd have to get two sets if you wanted the same springs all around. Maybe I'm just cheap. But I was wondering what other brands might fit?

Also, there is no real performance difference between the plastic and the aluminum shocks, right? I can't think why there would be, just asking.

DualBL ---- in a TC3 with a 6-cell C40 7S, I had the spinning problem when my pack was up front (foam spacer at rear). The car spun as soon as I hit the throttle. When I moved it back, the spinning just disappeared. Must have needed the weight at the rear. I have gold springs up front and silver at the rear. Front toe-in is about 2 deg, neg camber is 0-1 deg. Rear toe-in is 3 deg, 0-1 deg neg camber.

I don't know how this applies to a car with 16 cells.

zgiest with all respect racing aint cheep. if your having fun cool but if your racing quit now because if you are diliberating on wether or not to get a spring kit then you shouldnt be racing, do youre self a favor and get the spring there is rarley a time that you will use the same spring front and rear, usually the differences can be worked out between supension adjustments!

Default springs

Well, I'm going to get a spring set - I was just wondering if I should get the Associated one, or if there was some other brand that people thought was a better value for their money.

zgeist - keep in mind you can also buy them by the pair. If you run asphalt or just run carpet, there are gonna be springs in the spring set you'll never use. I find that red, gold, blue and silver are the ones I use regularly (on asphalt) and I almost never run the same color springs front and rear
