@ cyclone speed
You can try a harder rear anti roll bar. Go up to 1,4mm thickness. Will make the car more easy on power.

Questions?? Best battery for TCX

Hi,

I happy that I have received TCX! so new chasis new questions... Maybe you can advice what battery best for TXC? I mean, weight, size and power.
I use:
Standard TCX chasis
Tekin RC ESC
Tekin Redline 17.5 motor
Savox low profile servo

I am racing mostly on medium or high grip carpet with rubber tires. Our weight limit is 1350g.

Thank you for any advices.

I for 17.5 and 10.5 use IP 5800 60C the best compromise between power / capacity / weight

Went back to the 2.5 block and all was good again.
I use almost always 0 or 1.5 max and I was always very good, probably depends on driving style, I prefer to have more steering at the beginning of the curve and less outgoing.

I use 65mm, more possibility to adjust the droop.

From what im finding it depends a lot on the Tyre. This weekend i raced on Nosram 30X tyres, the car was very inconsistant with the "std" setup we have been using. I tried lots and as soon as i put the 0 block on the front the car was much better to drive and way faster. I actually found teh car turned more consistantly around the corner rather than lots of initial turn, and understeer middle or out of the corner. If you use the 0 block make sure you uses 5.5mm of hex on the front.

I wouldnt go longer than 65mm if you want to use higher ride heights as we talked about a few pages back
