Raced last night with new baseline set up and HPI silver springs. Car greatly improved.. I even posted one lap at 14.5 which was as quick as the amain winner.. I just need to become as consistent as him.

Set up attached.. this time I figured out how to flatten the pdf file..

Default TB04 Pro Pics

Enjoy the pics of my TB04 pro. I'm using this car to compete in the Belgian Tamiyacup. In the TW class, we use bathtub chassis and Carson/Tamiya 16T motor.

Honda NSX Lighweight body has already served 1 season:


1420g ready to run:


Shorty setup with ESC on battery side. The ESC runs without fan:


Basic setup for easy to drive car on carpet:
- yellow spring allround with 35wt
- Tamiya A-type with medium insert (green)
- geardiff: front (100.000), rear (std from kit)
- 5mm ride height
- 2 camber
- droop: front 6, rear 5

There is no drag in my drivetrain, you have to shim the drivetrain properly.
Also I use the TB03 main front spool and rear gear diff ring gear.

Hey there my friend.. how goes it in SD?

I consider my drive line very free with zero drag. I built the car with the shims suggested in manual. I have now raced the car in more than 10 races and the original plastic gears are still in amazing shape.

I believe it partly has to do with the lube I use. I use a cycling product by Finishline called Ceramic Wax Lube. It forms a thin layer bond on the gears and keeps dirt off the gears. I use this on the ring and pinion gears, as well as mitre gears.

Life is good in SD! I was up in Vegas last month for our wedding anni. It was just a 2 day thing, I'll hit you up next time when I'm out there! Maybe I'll acquire some IT clients there to get some more work and R&R (Racing & Relaxation)
I think i use the same lube for my MTB lol! Thanks! I'll look into it!
BTW Calraceway's T4T Dec 14th!

What's the reason for using those TB03 goodies?

Let's keep the setups coming.
Is anyone beating the high end belt cars at their track, X-rays etc?

That's where I got the idea. I use it on my road bike as well.

We have one more race weekend here and then they will stop until next year... Probably when it warms back up. (March / April) not looking forward to the down time lol.

I wish someone would come up with an indoor carpet track. Otherwise I will have to invade the off-road track with my rallye chassis
