I have been reading the last few pages since the worlds and people seem to be talking about the team running arms from previous incarnations of the Associated car and the possibility of upgrades (or a new car) possibly coming out. I know that Associated are not known for bringing out yearly touring cars the way other manufacturers seem to be this weather but is there any more to these rumors?

It's going to be a while until an update. The focus of the car designers right now is almost strictly regarding 8th scale. 4-6 months minimum, realistically.

To be honest I'm looking forward to the new 8th buggy so can't complain too much!

They are very high quality pieces , I ran them on two cars at IIC and they held up to a few hard hits fine. The fit and finish is great and they have a set screw for the hinge pin too. They do take just a touch of steering out of the car so keep that in mind. I did have to spend a minute on them with a dremel to get clearance for RSD DJC axles, but they clear the stock axles just fine

Hey All, after a little setup direction. Racing an indoor asphalt track, medium size and grip with both tight and open corners. Car feels good, enough steering, traction rolls if you clip a kerb, sits flat infield but dances a little on high speed corner entry. Also looking to take 0.6s off fast lap (would say 0.4s is in the driver) Any suggestions on what to try?

Thanks in advance,
M.Ellis

P.S. I'm awaiting funds so to purchase RSD alum chassis, carbon chassis and top deck.

What I recognized first was the vertical rear shock position. This should make the rear nervous and not easy to drive. I would recommend position 2C; 3C for the front. Also try the shortest camberlink position. This should make the car turn better in the middle of the corner. Also your car is very narrow in front.
One thing I would play with is the oil in the rear diff. 2000-3000cst seems to be the world standard, but try thicker oils too, especially if you miss corner entry and exit steering.
The aluminum chassis for sure will be an improvement. I just hope Christian didn't forget me

I agree, try maybe 1 dot in the front, and short camber links all around, should wake the car up a bit. Maybe a tick more camber in the front. Another thing to maybe try is more toe out in the front, I do that on pavement and it gives the car better drive out of the corner

Default Three chassis, one winner?

I decided to do a direct comparison between my TC chassis in front of the upcoming LRP-HPI-Challenge at my home-indoor-track in Senden:



In the middle we have the reigning champion chassis () the 6.1WC. TQ and A-main-sweep last year, this chassis got me one of my few regional wins in this series.
On the left my 6.2. After trying my outdoor setup indoor I was quite surprised how well it worked. Will it prevail against its old brother?
On the right my newest toy in orange () the T4'15. A very impressing car out of the box. I made some setupchanges already for my track and the car feels good, but is it fast?
The next days will show. We finally got our timing ready and I will do testing tomorrow and on several days next week.

All chassis will have the same motor, battery, tires, body. Different will be the esc. At least all three are LRP and blinky mode.

The worst outcome would be a draw

Hi Kevin,
Really looking forward to read about your impressions!
It will definitly influence my decision:
stick to my 6.1wc, count up to .2 ... or even change the color?
