Then your not getting a charger PERIOD

You can't get a good charger under $75-$100

Get an Integy 16x3v6 (I think). Good charger for the money

Default Bonn, Germany

Sorry if this is off topic. I already posted this inthe main thread. Maybe I can get help here.

Do any of you know if there are hobby shops in BONN, Germany? Or
Any European ON line shops? (i used to order fromthe one in netherlands) but i forgot the shop.

I'm sending my cuz a large amount of documents, 3-5kilos. And the cost of it is just like buying a new speedo. That's what I want in return .

Thanks for anyhelp!

Default set-up

yesterday I raced for the 2nd time, and learned a little about setting up my TC3...but as the day went on, my car started to handle poorly...it would handle decent after for the first few laps, then it was all down hill..I would have to back way off the throttle to get the front to turn..and when i would do this it would bite hard and turn sharp..what can I do to correct this.
I was running sorex 36R's, with -3 degrees of camber all around

Default starter charger

A good charger is woth the $$ dont waste $50 on a sub-par charger....save a little, or splurge and get a decent one..in the long run you will be glad you did

Black Kat what Brand is the steering rack? Where did you get it from. Is it better than the stock one. I snapped one last race so i need a new one and was thinking about going aluminium.

Cheers,

Mossie

I run -1 deg camber all around. More contact area and even-er tire wear

I too notice my car gets worse as the day goes on. I loose rear end traction at about 11:30....car feels dialed like a bar of soap until then.

Mossie: I belive that it is a IRS steering rack. I know for a fact it is NOT a Calandra. Chances are I got it from Speedtech R/C (link in my signature)
