By the moment no, but some very in on the cell business tell me that the 3300 is almost the same as the 3000 with a little improvement on the voltage side. I've asked to them when they're available, send me some packs to test versus GT3000-R.

By the moment, I still trust on my 'old' but very powerful Pasonic SMH.

At Europe, powers cell are like the ugly duck, with our limitation to 12 turns. We're engaged a bad craze search for the ultimate voltage cells and this is killing the touring class (very sad but true, maybe we have some ass*oles on our governing bodies, I'm so tired of saying, maybe some day I'll return to off-road class where aren't limits and youself put your limits). Here the king cells are Panas and RC3000HV.

On pan car class Powers are widely used, but that is another story...

Hey Kids,

How does the stock settings do on carpet. I know it might be a little on the loose (soft) side, but is it a good place to start with?

I have the FTTC3 kit.

Thanks

If your running rubber tires on carpet it isnt bad, but foam tires on carpet you should start elsewhere. Associated has a foam tire on carpet setup that is a decent place to start.

OutofControl:

This is my setup for rubber tires on high bite ozite carpet:

Front: 2 deg kickup, 4 deg caster blocks, 1 deg camber, 0 toe in, 60W, 2 hole piston, middle hole shock mount, swaybar, purple spring, 6 droop, 5 mm ride height, Pit 24 with Yok med insert, upper and inside camber link

Rear: 2 deg toe blocks, 0 anti-squat, 1 deg camber, 50 W, 2 hole piston, middle hole shock mount, no swaybar, red spring, 4 droop, 5 ride height, Pit 24 with Yok med insert, upper and inside camber link

If the bite is high, this should give you an aggressive and fast car. One more thing, I run a one way on the shaft.

RacerTex: That sounds like what I was planning.


Does anyone know what front blocks come stock on the FTTC3?

Yeah thats all well and good but in case you hadn't noticed this isn't "software" its only information

PS: I bet none of you guys use "napster" or "win mx" or "morpheus" then do you????

Sorry, but is a part from Associated, runs a item number and rather than being physical is a 'virtual part'. And is something that runs on a computer, then should be software (remember: all the software: Operating system, Apps, drivers, whatever you run in your computer is information, so.... what is software and what is information?).

If Associated would be distributed freely his TC3 tunning guide they solely posted on their website (like their manuals) and let free download to everyone who wanted/needed.

Hi guys. Greetings from Malta.

CORSE R and others. interesting discussion on batteries.

I have sold and run Powers 3000 - blue cover, Panasonic 3000, Panasonic SMH 3000, Sanyo RC3000, and have now started receiving stocks of Sanyo 3000HV. All are matched by reputable firms - Trinity, Orion, Corally, SMC.

Whilst I agree that the Powers 3000 gives plenty of time, I find that that time just cannot be converted into speed, no matter what you do with gearing, or what turn motor you use. They would be fine for 8 minute racing, but we race for 5 minutes.

The old Panasonic was good when it was the first of the 3000s on the market. The Sanyo RC3000 gives as much time as the Panasonic, and more power, and the Panasonic SMH is a bomb. I haven't tried the Sanyo HV yet so cannot talk on that. Incidentally all the cells we use are the top of the range ones from the various manufacturers.

Yes we are presently running Panasonic SMH 3000, having found them best for both speed and duration so far.

What I have heard from many sources is that Panasonic cells don't last as well as Sanyo, in terms of number of cycles. certainly I find that whereas the old Nicad cells got better with use, these NiMH cells deteriorate with every cycle. Just take a note of the voltage increase with every charge. That should mean more resistance, which is bad news. Mind you, when racing, if you can do a season with a pack of cells, that's enough!

What are your findings?

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.
