The "ignore" function isn't quite enough. Is there a "completely block all posts by" button?

Not necessary as i have to add 71grams to get the car to legal weight of 1380grams. Also have zero reason to change batteries. The same 4 year old in china is making all the lipos and people can say otherwise but until you can prove to me with actual documented evidence then i see no need.

I am not mad or bitter if you guys succeed before I do, but don't count me out, I just have not gotten any free time to race lately.......

Well Jeff, weight on the chassis is great, but weight on top of the diff cases and the body is not good.... An aluminum screw set saves about 20grams, and an ultra light weight gsf body saves another 30grams, plus another 7.5grams lost with the CF driveshaft, 7grams shaved with Ti turnbucles,etc..... These mods save 64.5grams high above ground, and will help you attack the turns more aggressively.... Everytime I significantly lower the CG in my tc4's I lower my lap times by half a second or so..... If you feel you are fast enough though, that's ok with me, but your setup is good to run at the Worlds with a few tweaks......

Also Jeff, all the top guys run a gforce supercapacitor(18grams) in their cars instead of just lead weights...

I did a little research on shorty lipos, and the nanotechs were not standing out as the best you can get at all, not even average.... Most racers were going for trakpower, protek, speedzone, etc....Lrp has those badass 4800mah shorty lipos, and other manufacturers are way above 4400mah too...You might be held back my friend......

Very reactive high roll center setup.... Gearing is pretty low at 3.87fdr, I guess it's just to start, but I would try to gear at 3.65fdr next... You have a lot of room here to get faster Jeff, great job!!!
Ps: the d3 motor has got average reviews from what I've read so far, but then again so has the Novaks....lol.... Maybe a d4 will do better...

the d3 is a great motor. but its not mine I borrowed it as I normally run mod. I was geared perfectly for the layout and the motor liked it and had the perfect scream to it if that makes sense. 3.6 on this layout would provide poor acceleration and high motor temps due to the size of the track. but thanks for the opinion.

Talking

The best diggity design chassis width is 65mm.... Just a straight shot from front end to rear end, no holes other than screw holes, and an Awesomatix type battery holder...
You add that chassis to BERT's upgrades, and it's over for the competition...lol...
