oh...and im also wondering what is a good motor with some good torque to use for drifting?

itll be good...just get two sets of adjustable tie rods, each set should be a car set(one for grip and one for drift)

so all you need to do is swap the tie rods for grip or swap the tie rods to drift

as for a motor....as assuming you are good in off road with nitros...

i would get a 19 or 21 trun motor for your nitro off road fingers

but if you can start any where...go directly to a monster

bulid it as the manual says, if ur gona drift it more

but if ur gona race it more, build it how u wana and learn to drift with that set-up

Oh anthony, guess what i might get?

a HPI RS4 3 Evo! then fo x-mas the stage-d kit!!!


that means i can keep up with you!
lol

WOW ...i remember telling you like last month or was it two months ago that i was TEACHING YOU....and now your teaching others


you guys learn fast

well if you get that now the question is...can you drive it?

(drive it with skillz)

also if im that fast with a electric...how fast would i be with a nitro?


not saying nitros are natrualy faster than electric but just from a 19t motor electric to a .18 nitro...i think ill be faster than my electric by just a bit....

and faster than you by...ummm...10mph prolly

ok i need some advise here i was drifting with me mate today and some guy who watches us each time we go came up to me and went, you gonna be here next week, i was like yeaaa y? he said good ill bring my T-Max and race you, so i said yea dam right you go no chance.
Im beginnin to worry now do you think a TC3 with a top condition 9x3 with 3700's would take a T-Max? i cant loose im thinking about resorting to the a checkpoint just to be shore i DO win its gonna be a drag race and a sort of track just around like lighting posts and stuff. ATM the TC3 is on rails with rubbers on it just the speed im worried about

as long as every thing is maintained

then YES

most likely

youll hella kick his a$$ in acceleration

that alone is good eough

when your going against somthing three times heavier and wheel diameter is twice as big as you

the. acceleration in the tc3 will be unbeilievable compared to the tmaxx

oh yea is it the .15 or 2.5 or even the 3.3!!!

LOL

dnt worry

you got him

Oi, dont worry bro, I have TC3 also with 9x2 on it, on 1st 50 meters drag trust me it would out accelerate those big fat trucks,
well maintained TC3 drivetrain are very free, almost like my 10L3 except its 2WD,
with 8x2, my 10L3 elapsed time is around 9~10 sec on 200 m track (about 1/8mile).. ,, goodluck PaZ

yo everybody its me again. i still havent fixed my car. lol. i wanna go with some sick NTC3 outdrives. steel. hELL YEAH BABY! but i was wondering you guys thoughts on this monster of a diff idea. i was thinking of gettin a new slightly faster motor to compensate for the weight. the lowest i can go is 17 turns. so. hey any input is good input. btw the reason why i dont wanna replace with real trinity parts is because trinity isnt really being as reliable as they should for replacement parts. and i dont do spec racing. and i just drift. so help meh out.

thanks.
