Hey Paul,
Congratulations on your 2011 ROAR On-Road Championship win this past weekend at Jackson, NJ.

Like always, Randy and I are ecstatic to be at the same event with you. Even better, to run in the same class. Thanks again for the XRAY pinion to get us going again in MOD TC.

One more thanks.
Thanks for all the help, coaching, tips, and smiles over the past 4 years as we met paths at different races. The tips at the Wisconsin TCS event were invaluable for rubber on carpet racing.

Randy is going to put down RC racing for a while while he goes off to college. Time goes fast. It was just yesterday, Randy was sliding around with a silver can motor in a TA05 to this past weekend running MOD on the RC/American team in a National event.

Thanks to you, XRAY, and RC/America for the support over the years.

BTW, we still have the painted TC body you gave us back in 2007 as a souvenir.

The best going away present was when Randy tucked in behind you (his mentor) at the 3:45 mark and got the ride of his life.

Hey Paul, congrats on your victory!

I have to ask you this though. After such a big win do you ever feel like going out to the start finish line and giving it a kiss? You know, like the winners do at Indy.

I will wait patiently for your response. Thank you.

The C-Hubs come in 2, 4, and 6 Degree. For VTA, on Asphalt (i.e. the Asphalt Assault Series).... What degree of C-Hubs should I be running? ........ Thank You and see you at the AA on Aug 21st.
Hi. Thanks!.
I have never set up a VTA car with those tall tires but i would guess 4deg blocks, if the car is hard to drive then i would try 2 deg then.

see ya.

A 1/12th question for you, does one prefer to have a 1/12th body float or should it be tight to the posts? Whats your preference? Also whats your preference for body choice in 1/12th carpet?

EA your suggestion saved me a ton of work and well worth the money.

Thanks
I normallu let mine float but not much, holes just a little oversized and 1mm or so up and down. Thanks

I run the strong purple rotor in my mod TC. for me it is the only one to use. from their i tone down the speedo, gear accordigly and use a little negitive throttle expo to make it drive smooth. maybe -10%,

Thanks

Hi Kraig!. Definately not LOL.

Have looked at that setup and seen the footage.

Why the extremes of roll centres front and rear, what did these give you over standard 0.00 RC's?

Thanks

Hi, I was fighting for forward traction with the car in practice. I thought that the high rear roll center blocks would keep the rear end a little flatter threw the corner which could help the car accelorate coming off better. I would have done more testing with it but normally at a big race i try and not change my car much after qualifing starts. so in the end i just focused on being comfortible driving it however it was. it seemed to work pretty well but im not saying that it is my best set up ever.

Thanks

Hi Sam, For that track i would start at a 116/26, That will be safe for sure, if it is not fast enough try a 27 pinion, that would Not be over geared iether.

Thanks.
