camaro

just finished my landmax 2, and i think you'll like it. i put a 2 speed on it, switched out the shocks to mugen big bores and to 7.5 shock towers all around, through on a rb 063 one-piece pipe, and had my buddy paint my a really nice scheme. i'll post some pics soon.

i do however, have some questions for you:

1.since it doesn't have a front bumper, the hood has a tendency to flex. are you running a bumper, or did you figure another way to stiffen the hood of the body?

2.which swaybars are you running? i've noticed i'm getting a bit too much roll, and i think it's because of the increased suspension travel.

3.i was looking at your wheels. those are regular 1/8 scale buggy wheels ? aside from the wheel adaptors, did you have mod anything to fit? i've got a set of wheels w/ proline streets, but they seem so much bigger than the stock wheels. i was looking at your pic, and there didn't seem to be much of a difference. is it because the tarmacs are that much lower profile? i'm also interested to hear what other wheel/tire combos you've tried.

btw, i checked out your webpage - real nice!

my friend reicently got a TC3 and the rally conversion kit. he likes it a lot but you can really tell that it is still a sedan at heart. and don't even think about running it without without an under body the smallest rock or bit of dirt can easly jam the steering system and the pinion and spur gear are in such a position that they fill with dirt and eat up the teeth.

Very nice LM2 DickemDown! Good to see more people running kicking the LM's around. they are sooo much fun.

to answer your questions.. so far no I've not been running any kind of bumper. I noticed the front body flex but it hasn't been enough of an issue to be a problem for me even during silly high speed driving with my single speed 18/44 gearing.

for sway bars just the stock MP7.5 buggy ones. they fit and work perfectly. Front part # IFW104 Rear is pt# IF117

They are medial Pro tarmac II's and they are much shorter overall diamater than standard buggy wheels and tires. The tarmacs are about 1mm larger overall diamater than the kyosho soft compound rally tires. standard buggy wheels and tires are tough to fit on an a landmax only because they are so large they hit the header. thus far the only header that I've found that works with standard buggy tires is a stock savage header.

I've tried all the kyosho landmax tires. I prefer the medial pro's for pavement running because they have way more grip and better longevity than the kyosho slicks. My second choice for pavement running is the kyosho slick GT045. I'd stay away from the kyosho high grip raidal tires GTW004. the set I had tore along the treads while running in a large parking lot.
For off road conditions I run the kyosho soft compound rally tires GTW005. another option for off road running is the landmax ST tires GT049. they are just a bit taller than the rally tires and have a really agressive tread pattern but the tire compound is not as soft.

Default TAO4s

I used my TAO4s in the Canadian TCS series and I never broke anything. I was able ti fit a HPI rally inner body into it and it worked well in the dirt as well. I had a HPI rally but I thought it was too cheaply made and the TAO4s came with a lot of stuff the HPI didn't . Just my personal opinion, everybody likes different stuff.

i'm not sure it the tc3 is a good choice to rally. i know that tony phalen has a a rally setup on his website www.competionx.com (i think it's also on team associated's website as a pdf file under setups).

are you looking for electric? kyosho has a nice 1/10 scale rally, but it's a nitro. you can check out the article in one of the recent rc car action mags.
