Also, with the 3700 Teemu Chassis, is there any problem using 3300's in it, they don't sit too low or anything?? As I still have a few 3300's left to use but imagine in not too long will have all 3700's?

Thanks

The raised drive train increases dogbone plunge into the drive cup and raises the CG for more weight transfer. The increased plunge should reduce on power traction but its effects are minimal. The higher CG make the car roll more for more weight transfer/traction.

The Teemu towers have all the holes moved down 2mm to compensate for the diff riser plates.

The 3300's fit in 3700 slots just fine if your cells are not glued together. If they are they will ride a bit higher than the 3700's.

There are 2 populair body's : dodge stratus 3.0 and the mazda 6.0 for racing indoor on small tracks i see that the Alfa 156 is still used allot.I use the Dodge stratus 1.0 for carpet and the mazda 6.0 for outdoor on asphalt.Thats also the choice of the driver himself.( his drivingstyle)

for setups look @ this link : http://www.racing-cars.com/search.as...e1=prodvalue14

For Carpet Rubber tires the Protoform Maxda 6 or Stratus 3.0 All Purpose are the the best.

For Carpet Foam tires the Parma Alfa is the only choice.

Thanks for the Shell advice, I was wondering whether to go for the Mazda 6 or the Strauts 3.0.

As for setups, I been to Schumachers site (my first port of call) and they vary so much, especialy the shock oil.

Go to www.gearchart.com for setups. Jason Moberly has quite a few Rubber Tire Carpet setups on there that work great.

I just got my new set of Schumacher tools. I can't wait to use them. I've got a bunch of wrenching to do tonight to get the car ready for the Hitec race this weekend.

I ran a loner MI2 with spektrum this weekend with my transmitter. Qualified 5th in 19turn and had the 3rd fastest single lap at a track I have never run at but had to pull off on the first lap of the main, still glitching.
I guess I'll just start throwing money at it till I get it straightened out.
