Thank you
Yes we have been testing narrower chassis but it still needs some work to be honest. We might be able to offer this chassis as an option parts later but it still hasn't reached to the point that we are aiming.

I will let you guys all know when this chassis is ready.

Thanks,

I don't think Hiro does much carpet racing so my guess is that mod is used for high bite asphault. (?)

Take that back... mine is a little different. I do one 1mm hole. I haven't tried two holes yet, but I think it might work better when traction is very low.

Just had my first race meet with the tcx last night. By that I mean I only got 2 races and no practice because I had to go to a cousins birthday first

Car seems very stable compared to the Cyclone, and the steering was very consistent even though the tires I ran were very old.
I'm racing in very low grip conditions, I ran kit setup except much softer springs, hole 3 on front shock tower and no sway bars.

Looks good so far, cant wait to get more track time to set up properly

I think more important thing is that there is a hoe or not on the cap. I believe that doesn't really matter how many or what size the holes are.

I will try to post a picture. Do you know if i can post pic from my iphone?

Thanks,

I saw tcx parts price going up, for some parts as duble high then on tc.
Is that new strategy?
Parts that i saw duble priced are tcx specific like spool, diff, top plate etc.
For now i must hold on to my tc or switch to cheaper brands due to super high prices of parts.
Will price drop soon?
