Default my personal race results.

I know this probably won't mean much to most of u EXPERT drivers, but Today was the first time I ran my TB3 on track. If you could see the smile on my face since the time I started, until now!!! hahahah!!!! I can safely say, goin from a TC3 RTR, to a factory Team, to a TB Evo2, and now the Evo3,,, NEVER in my life have I ever had such a clean race!!! Somewhat tight concrete track, not much traction, and this rookie w/ front 1way installed. But u know wat? W/ the complete box stock setup except for blue sways in the front, and red sways in the rear. The car never spun out, went through corners faster than a liquor store bandit, and even punched out of it clean! I was even able to dodge all the other drivers I was lapping (a few times), without incident most of the time! I SHOULD HAVE HAD THAT TQ SPOT!!! except my gearing was not tall enuff to handle the straight, where I kept getting caught (out of everyone there, and the Hobby store on tap, how da heck could I not find a 36 pinion?!). I wish I could have tried my main, I knew I could have done it, except I had 2 leave early to take my lil' bro to the airport cuz he's goin 2 college out of da country. Overall, I had no troubles watsoever w/ the car. I just wish I had the tuning skillz.. heheh.. and more gearing=P... I know this don't mean much to most, but this proves that even the rookie can make this car great! CAN'T WAIT TILL THE NEXT RACE!!!

hey guys maybe you can help me with a problem. I went to practice yesterday and noticed theres a prob. with my E3. It will glitch in certain spots on the track and sort of runs out of power on certain turns. I switched receivers, but it still does it. I'm running a new quantum competiotion esc and a new futaba s9405 servo. my best guess is that the servo is sucking too much power on the turns cuz it sort of stops doing that after i let go of the steering wheel. then the power kicks into the motor and it takes off. should i get a new servo? add more caps to the motor, put in that ESC world upgrade kit? help. :P

Default Is your chassis internally split?

Check your chassis,

If you flex it and you get glitching it maybe the chassis is internally delaminating from a crash.
Just a thought.

My experience from our old local track only certain frequencies glitch on same spots each time the car pass. I kinda figured it must be unscroupolous frequency interference coming from 2-way radios around the area. Btw, I was talking about AM freq.

Had a crash on qualifying and when the finals started I noticed a loud gear noise from the front gear case. Shock of my life, 1 of the 3x10 tapping screw from the gearcase came loose. Good thing the crown gear didnt strip. I replaced the screw back and was able to run again. And there you go, if your not watchful with gearcase screws it can totally end up a good day's race.

i dont think it'd be delaminating...i CA's all the edges, and I havent crashed no where near hard yet...tapped the boards a little sideways, but not HARD enough to do that... oh, as far as the frequency interference... I run an MX3 FM radio. I also ran another touring car on same frequency and it wouldn't glitch with it at all.any other ideas?
