Default Billings Info

Hey Jsaves,

Do you have a website or some additional info on your track/races/schedule? I travel to Billings frequently for business and would like to stop by your track. When is your big race?

Thanks!

How many entrees do they normally get for the 2-day? Equally dispersed between stock/modified?

Thanks.

Default When did the FT TC4 get released?

Hi all,

Newbie here. I bought my TC4 last year when they first came out. When did FT TC4 get released.



I had baby girl, and I have been out of RC's since.

Thanks,

Lebatek,
Hey thanks for the interest. Our entry list has peaked at 85 in the last three years. There are more stock than mod with about a ratio of one third to two thirds. We are looking at a break out this year so come and join us.
We will post info updates on our web page and in the Northwest forum.
We hope to have some big news this weekend.

Thanks and God Bless

Question about wieght distribution on the FT TC4...

How do you guys normally check it to get it right? Make sure your shocks are equal length.. set ride height even all the way around.. then scale it? ride height, tweak, then scale?

I keep chasing the balance on this car and its driving me NUTS!!!!

tc4kid191 - jodywk is right softest-green,silver,blue,gold,red,copper,purple,yellow,wh ite-stiffest

XMSRacing...

i run stock monster motor, GP 3300s, LRP QC2, Airtronics 357, fan duct with both fans, AMB transponder, battery strap...

+21g (3 ae weights) on the electronics side makes the car pretty darn close to a 50/50 left right balance. with this setup i can set my ride height and set tweak with an MIP tweak station and be able to have a perfectly tweaked car with the shock collars very near equal length and ride height even all around.
