it must be finished off around the edges when you get surely
like you say it will look cack

Now the question i have is would running the outside hole be way to much of an agressive change for here in the states if even what we think is low traction is really high traction for you guys.

Sorry for all the questions just trying to learn some stuff.
The LRP race wasnt very low byte, some cars had problems with traction rolling there. However, if you race on a track where foam tires are used the traction usually is a lot different to our tracks.

It's difficult to say what works best on your track. The best way to find out is to try different settings. Only by trying stuff will you find the settings that suit your track and driving style the best.

Hey Rick,


Have you had a chance to run the ITF chassis yet. Like most of us on here I would like to know if I need to order the ITF from the start.


Thanks

I am sure its same to assume you would run the itf chassis and top deck for all rubber tire racing.

Wallstreet,


Yes, I pretty sure the ITF would best suit rubber tires only. If you you are running rubber on carpet then both chassis could work, But if you need more flex the ITF would help you.

As for rubber tires with the stock chassis that is what I am looking into.

Foam tires, I would think the stock chassis should work.


All of this info is from what I have read.

Hope that helps

OK so now I am confused.

Yes, I would think the ITF chassis would be for rubbers only. I am just asking Rick if he ran the stock chassis with rubber tires on asphalt and if it worked well.


Guess time will tell

The stock 2.5mm chassis and top deck are VERY stiff. I dont see the need for anything stiffer next year. But on the same token it is probably too stiff to use for rubber tires other than super high bite on carpet. The ITF is what everyone has been running when using rubber tires on carpet and asphalt.

I think all the parts (spare and options) will be out about 2 weeks after the car.

Thanks Eric,


Most of the photos I have seen are the TC5 on carpet with foam or rubber tires. I have seen very few photos of the TC5 on asphalt with the body off. I was not sure if the team did run the stock chasis with rubber tires on asphalt. Those spy shots from last years RROC gave me no clue on which chassis they were running.
