I tried one of your fans today in my mod sedan. More powerful than the side piece I had been using and it fits on the rsd fan mount better. My motor was 6-8 degrees cooler than it was with the side piece racing.

Very nice piece Paul. Installed nice and clean and blows a lot of volume at a high speed!

Hi Paul-Brian from TS once again,
Got to finally run our XB4 at TS last week with your setup--am very happy with it--the buggy is super dialed and lands jumps/lands very well.
One quick question-a number of guys from the XB4 forum are running their buggy without swaybars and liking it--saying it hooks up a bit better. Just was curious on your thoughts about that and if you've played with running w/o swaybars at all or are you a "swaybar guy" 100% of the time no ifs ands or buts??? I like to experiment so I plan on doing my own testing but still was hoping to get your thoughts--Thanks!!

Hi. I would give it a try without bars. Im not really sure what it will do for the handling. I will get back to testing off road soon and try it myself as well. many times when i try it in on road it can make the car more predictable for me but not necessarily more grip, but im sure the two situations are not comparable.

good luck!

Hi Paul,

On most of your T4's setup, the caster used are 4 or 6 deg....
May i know under what conditions you will used 4 deg and 6 deg ?
It also the same for what conditions to use spring 2.3 & 2.5.......

Hi. I would say that 4deg is normally for low to med bite tracks and 6deg is more for high grip carpet or asphalt. the springs I dont really know, i feel like at every track i have to try a bit stiffer springs to see if it works better or not, I haven't found any consistency's as to when 2.3's work over 2.5's vice versa.

Thanks!

Hi Brian, what speedo/motor are you running? drag brake is super dependent on the speedo and motor/gearing. Thanks!

Hi Paul,

Do you feel the 1999 Tal Bachman song "She's So High" has proven to have any inspiration to your RC career?

Thank you,
Chris

Wilde-I think 1999 was the year of the peniscolada boat experiment?
