the TCX is the most stable and predictable car to drive.
Responds to the slightest changes (good in my book)
you won't need much as far as option parts.
steel front bones. is a must.
and HPI spring set.
that is all you'll need for a starting base.
Coming from RDX PHi '09.
Considering buying this car.
Living in Europe, racing on outdoor tracks tarmac/asphalt, low to medium grip.
Is this car any good for stock racing?
You say needed is:
- steel front bones. is a must.
WHAT PART NUMBER, WERE TO GET IT?
- and HPI spring set.
WHICH ONES, WHERE TO GET THEM?
- what servo best to use? (sold mine). I ask because HB is very specific about the measurements, see page 5 of the manual.
- shock pistons. In the kit is 2 holes. I looked at a lot of setupsheets and see that everybody uses 3 holes. So they would be needed too.
- geardiff. Still not in the kit? Which one to buy? Spec-R?
- spurs. In the kit is 115T 64DP. Want to use the car in stock racing with 48DP spurs between 75T and 90T. Do these exist for this car? If so, which ones, brand name and so on. So, needed too.
- pinions for this car? Any preferences, again ofcourse 48DP. Needed too.
- as to springs: in the kit is 6544 gold front and 6543 silver rear. Many people use 6543 silver front and 6542 blue. Some use 6548 pink front and 6542 blue. A bit confusing for me because I am used to measuring in lbs. What are these in lbs?
I presume the higher the number the harder the spring?
Most likely knowing that usually front is used a somewhat harder spring.
If so than 6543 front and 6542 rear would still be front a bit harder than rear but overall somewhat softer. So I would buy me the 6542 blue to make that combination.
So as I see it there is more needed than suggested.
Would be nice to get input from you TCX guys.
I am probably going to choose between TCX and T3 '12. Have to admit that the documentation, support and forum are better than any other brand. Also parts are easier to purchase. And parts are cheaper!
TCX came in the picture because to me it looks like a dream. But that really doesn't count, now does it. And the argument of wanting something else than a lot of other people is also not really valid. A big nono could be that in stockracing it isn't used that much.
