That drivetrain looks about right for stock racing. I bet it would go a lot longer if there were lead weights inside the wheels hehe.

Probably Anyway! I've done a lot of things on my TC3. Like I mentionned before, and others as well, the amount of time and effort it took me to get a free drivetrain would've been better spent on the track practicing.

Rear shock tower on the front.I cant get anything above 2mm ride height.Is there any special trick to get it to ride height other then lengthen the ball ends?

What front arms are you using? How long are your shocks?

I just have my shock ends screwed in to where it comes up to the end of the threads. Then I just make my shocks all the same length. i forget what the exact length is.

If you are running the v2 arms in the outer hole then you won't need to run any spacers underneath the rear tower on the front. I run a Baker reedy race setup. Only a few changes. I'll PM you some of the changes to the setup.

Racenut,
Something's not right. Did you make sure that there are no spacers inside the shock?

Now this may seem kind of stupid, but make sure that the droop screws are not too screwed in, that would cause a lack of ride height as well.

I checked and your right ling.I took out the oring that was limiting travel.Man has everybody noticed that the car turns in like crazy with the rear shock tower?I set my car up with barry's reedy setup but with a oneway. Its a bit on the twitchy side,though I can see it being fast.

Anyone have a good aphalt parking lot setup?

2 more things guys.How do you check if the front carrier is either a 2 or a 4 degree hub and where are you guys checking for droop at on the arms themselves.

Thanks!

On the "C" carrior there should be either a 4R, or a 4L(in silver sharpie). Now it should be the same for the 2degree's, just in a 2R, or a 2L.

Where to check the droop, is where the arm curves, right where the hingepin goes through, measure from there, I am pretty sure that is where you measure from in the manual...
