Default 3Racing Foam Bumper

Anyone run this, or have seen it? Just wondering if it is wider than the stock foam bumper?

Default I've seen it.

but I don't have one. You might try Rubberneck, I guess he makes some good ones. They may also be cheaper.

Default Guess I never paid attention...

I have tape on my chassis and the batteries work fine. Maybe smaller cells touch. I'm waiting for my new milled TC4 chassis to get back from Dave. I'm going to try the chassis protector. Ive seen it done on other chassis. Looks like it works good.

RDR, I can't help you, I'm not sure on the 3 racing bumper

I'm glad to know you like your corally motors, they don't seem to be so popular in the US and I was wondering why as they are so great and often used by drivers here in Europe and France

One last thing and I'll stop bothering you, how many runs do you get when using the V2 endbell with the 8T compared to the normal one?

Cheers!

This one answers Raving Monkey too.

Firstly, no problem. You are not bothering me, I can assure you. It's no problem.

Yes, we find Corally motors very good, having tried most of the others. Besides, we get alot of help from Corally themselves too. In fact we use their cells too.

With the same Corally 8 x 1 we manage at least 10 runs on a set of V2 Sprint brushes, with higher gearing, and little deterioration in performance. But we never seem to get the ultimate performance as we do with Corally motors with their own Q brush. That brush is ballistic. One of these days I want to make a set of V2 style brushes out of a set of Q brushes. I bet it's the Q brush material that's so magic.

Hope this answers your questions, but feel free to ask. If we can help that's fine.

In the meantime, we race the TC4 again this coming weekend.

THe batteries do not short on the chassis. I tried it . Nor do you need to insulate the reciever wire. I asked Mike Blackstock and he said he just runs it like you would the regular molded chassis. I have done the same and have encountered no problems, nor have I with the battery.

TC3 turnbuckles are the ones you want and the carbon kit helps the car quite a bit.

Dan yes I do have the graphite chassis,and I do like this car,I also have alot of TC's and i like this one very much,I'm still playing with set ups,I just got a one way so i think it will help me alot,I'm a "difftard",I like the TC4 alot better than the TC3 it feels alot more stable but is just as quick.I know you have seen a few quick TC4's..Lex's is one of them.It's cool you can take a $200 car and still be in the hunt with all the $400 cars..

i am...i think the fans are pretty pointless though.

on carpet they get full of fluff...so unless you keep cleaning them out then they will probably get jammed sooner or later.

outside you don't even need to use the fans..just the duct.

only motors i think you need to use them on are stock motors to be honest. i don't run them indoors with modified...just my stocks seem to get sooooooo hot its unbelievable but since using the fans they have started coming off cooler.

so it is a investment worthwhile but pain in the arse to keep them working at their best.
