Thanks!
Will you or have you been running one lately? If so do you already have a setup sheet or are you just running the kit setup?

Unfortunately, I do not have mine yet. They were trying very hard to get me a car in time to run the Reedy Race with it, but the 1/8 Worlds and the release of the Truggy put them behind a bit. I hope to have it next week and then plan to run it as soon as possible.

I will be attending the Timezone GP in late July to race 1/8, but plan to arrive on Thursday to join in their Thursday night electric race. looking forward to getting some more wheel time with electric Touring Car

Scott,

I think they are offering electric mod TC racing at the Timezone 2 race also, are you considering doing that as well as your normal 1/8th scale racing? That would be cool if you are.

The Losi has been holding me back for a while now... the diff is simply not up to applying horsepower without negative effects and the chassis can't combine even medium side bite with corner speed. I have done a lot of experiments to try and find a balance but it isn't there. Its just not enough for the modern tech that powers it.

Does anyone know anything about the spring listings in the manual for the 411? I had a look through and there are three springs with "L23 TC(2)" as part of their description. These springs are not on the list for the optional spring kit that is for this car on the serpent site. Are they specific to fill the "gaps" between the rates on the standard kit? 13.0-16.0-19.5 is rather large jumps for EP TC touring cars on rubber.
