Yes, Al Horne is fully sponsored by AE. He's amazing to watch, and racing with him (or getting lapped by him) is alot of fun. Mostly just b/c you can say you've ran with some of the best. Not many around here who can compete with him. Very rarely do I see him not finish first.

I'm hoping the carpet racing will help the skills. Road coarse with the 1/12 will be fun. Oval racing requires way more concentration than I'd ever believed. Only run four minutes, but your going 50 or 60 laps, so you really have to pay attention to run well. Alot of the good guys around here run on-road in the winter also. My only thing is it sucks having to get all the electric stuff when nitro is what I really love racing. But dirt season's coming!!

Default Need RC10GT expert...

Can someone tell me the difference between Associated's fuel tanks listed for the RC10GT, numbers 7719 and 7720? One is listed as covering both the RC10GT and NTC3, and the other is specific to the RC10GT.


Thanks,


doug

Get the ntc3 tank one. The lid is in the front and makes refueling a breeze.

I got a new tank the othe day.....there's a cylinder that you're supposed to screw into the tank. I figure it's to reduce volume to a certain amount. Is this to make the cc amount legal?

Correct. But you only need it if you are going to a race where they tech the vehicles. I've never seen a club race check that.

So the difference is the direction of the tank lid hinge?

This tanks is not going in a GT, but a sprint car, so the specific differences are important. So let me verify, the NTC3 version has the tank lid on the front of the tank, hinged to the rear, correct?


Thanks,


doug

Yeah buddy, the gt tank used to face the rear of the truck so you had to fill it thru the side windo.

The ntc3 tank the lid is at towards the front of the truck, and is hinged in the rear so you can fill either thru the front windshield or the side if you want.

I've been thinking about doing the widening mod but was wondering how much of a difference it makes. Would this be the same as running a wheel with a wider offset like the HPI superstars or is it different because of where the wheel actually mounts?

im not sure if the difference between the kit and offset rims matters, but the T4 kit for the front end is defintely more stable. it tends to be easier to dial in the steering, and keeps the truck cleaner in the rough stuff.

It's better to actually make the truck wider than to just run wheels with a larger offset. It affects the handling different. Would you or I notice the difference? Doubt it. I use the full widening kit, and I think it's a very good improvement.

stock spur gear is 66t 32p, and is 3.89 at tower. the manufacturer stock number from kimbrough is #249. personally i like to go down a couple teeth on the spur, 64 or so and on really big tracks i go up one on the clutch bell. it would take a pretty tight track for me to use the stock gearing.

for my GT i like the good ole fashioned crowd pleazer body from pro-line. theyre tough, good lookin, and easy to paint, although id almost prefer if pro-line made an interceptor body (the stock t4 body) so they would all match, but pretty much anything by pro line will do ya fine.
