Go back a page or 2, most of them have been mentioned.

There are a couple of plastic parts replaced with aluminium more so for bling and to make the kit a bit better allround. Plus fixing a few bugs up.

By the way im not a factory driver, nor worthy of it.

Guessed that, have you experimented with other blocks on the front?

Fairly sure its not a new car, obviously some confusion at the hkrcmodel end. From what i hear the new cars (Hara and Surikarn editions) will be out nearer to May.

Not at this time. I did on my Pro4 when I had it. When I had the arms swept back less the car wasn't as aggressive steering overall. I had less turn in with the arms swept less. Right now I like the 2.5 but if I change my the way I apply my compound I might chnage thiss to be less agressive.

wyd - are you running rubbers or foams? I'm guessing rubber tires, but you never know.
Will be posting my carpet setup soon.

I'm running Take Off 32's (Rubber tires). I want to try some 36's once I get to run some more practice to dial it in better. Then I will strap on some 36's just to see how it runs. I ran 36's vs 32's on my TC4 and the differance I thought was the 36's pushed more.

I am thinking of getting one of these cars and haven't been following this thread very close. So are you running foam tires on carpet than? Also are you running your own chassis that is thicker or anything.

Does anyone have a carpet foam setup that works well with the way the car comes out of box. I mean not Hara's Vegas setup that includes a custom made thicker chassis.

If there is a BMI chassis coming out than what is the eta?
Thanks Jamee

hey buddy,

i am running the car on asphalt with rubber tires.i dont get to run carpet much.florida is not the place to live for carpet racing (except for the birds)

i will be making a carpet chassis for the car that will be very exotic.i will be making it with the same style battery slots as my 1/12th scale car.the chassis will be made from 3mm c/f as will the top deck.i may do shock towers also.i will need to talk to my test drivers to see what they think.i will be starting on this chassis immediately following the snowbirds.i should be able to have things ready to go within 3-4 weeks from then.i will keep you guys posted with info and pics.there will be some changes made for carpet but i cant say now until i jump into the project with both feet.
