Hey, thanks for the setup sheet Freddy, very useful!!

I was wondering do most of the team drivers run the equal pivot blocks in the front ( 1.5/1.5, 2/2) as you cant always tell from their setup sheet?

also, what are the 'must' have upgrades for the TCX? i'll probably just be running super stock with it

thanks!
I love my TCX and I am sure all the guys in this thread do as well. The ability to get parts is REALLY wearing thin on my patience. Something to consider if you have not purchased one yet.

About somebody say to have HBX chassis in TC.
I have to say Exotek will release soon their narrow chassis for TCX as well, i wonder to have 1 to using that carbon battery strap together.

Thanks Arn0

We only use FF 1,5° / FR 1,5° blocks if traction is so high that we have otherwise traction roll. Normally we use std. block FR and 0° or 1° FF

Hi Freddy,

When you use the 0 block, do you use 2mm f/f and f/r .75mm spacers aswell?

Noticed this is what i need to do when using a 0 block so the driveshaft and ackeman angle are the same when i use the 2.5 front block with .75mm f/f and 2mm f/r spacer.

Thanks

Steven

Default Practice tonight

Had a great time practicing tonight at WCRC. Lots of really good drivers. Thanks for the help again tonight Hiro. You are the man. Nice racing tonight. I can't wait until I can get at least good enough to race.

Night ended with someone stealing my DX3R so that really ruined the fact I practiced all night without breaking one part.....

Hi,

Is there supposed to be an O ring in the 'cylinder nut' #HB70720 ? as mine turn really easy, I think they might move while racing.

You mean the stock spring adjuster (black)? No there are no O rings on the spring adjuster , those adjusters can move easily BUT from today's race it hold up pretty good. Anyhow just for assurance,I m trying to find the option purple adjusters coz those have O rings (like any other brand's shocks) but at the moment can't find it anywhere in stock.

Yeah there pretty cheap and nasty, managed to find the WE cyclone ones myself, but Schuamacher ones might fit.

I have not had any issues with the adjuster after quite a few weekends of running the car.
The only problem encountered with the shocks were the lower cap which has a tendency to undue itself, my quick solution for that was to use 1 drop of threadlock and that has worked perfectly.
