My guess is the Snowbird's race unless a few are going up to Canada. Oh wait, isn't there a race overseas coming up soon? Maybe Juho and Craig will be at that one?

Ok, maybe I should have said I don't really know for sure.

Are the shock bodies and ballcups really the only parts that carry over? What about the VCS2 shock caps, shock springs, hub bearings and 4-40 hardware?
I still race a TC3, my parts box is full of this stuff.

Yes there are a few other parts that carry over, but the major ones are the shock bodies, VCS2, Springs, Ballcups, Tierods, Diff Hardware, Ballstuds, Body Posts...I'm sure I'm still missing a few small items. Most of the screws will be 2mm metric threads. Your 5/64 (2mm) wrench will fit most screws in the car. The bearings will also be all metric spec.

Yes, the DHI Cup is this coming weekend. Craig Drescher, Juho Levanen, Christer Andersson and our new team member Joel Myrberg will all be using the prototype car at the race.

Brent - You going to give us a date?

We need this before 3/20 which is the new date for a certain other car.

Scotty will be sporting the TC4 in Canada. He placed 4th in the Brushless "A" main at the Novak.

How about Fred Kellner (local racer) Holding TQ in Stock Rubber until the final round with a TC3! WOW he had that thing dialed!

The set-up was pretty good as a starting set-up. Due to the high traction conditions, I made some big and small changes but ended up pretty close to what I used in Cleveland. The biggest difference was a rear roll-center change. Smaller change included slightly heavier oil and springs in the front. And slightly softer springsin the rear.

The race was a bit of a disaster for me. I started with servo and radio problems. Intermittent glitching at the transponder loop caused problems at the fastest part of the track just as you entered the sweeper at the end of the straight. And a non-centering servo was finally changed one I realized that it was a problem (rather than a chassis issue as I thought it was).

Unfortunately I did not drive very well in modified. I could turn copmpetitive lap times and continuallyimproved the car diring qualifying. But I could not string a full run together. My best run was actually an A-main run until I crashed two laps in a row near the end of the heat. The car was perfect and I ended up throwing it away

The car was even better in the main but a mistake on my part sent me into a wall and out of the race.

My first 19-turn race went OK. I did not have enough tires to run new (better) ones in this class so I ran chunked re-runs etc. The idea was to use this as a practice class and for something to do. Next time I will be prepared to give it 100%.

All in all, the car was very good. It is a shame that the results were not as good as they could have been.

Rick,

Thanks for the update, we all have had races like that. Good to hear the car is coming along and the ability to tune the car in for those type of track conditions. Looks like the TC5 will be more tunable then the TC4. I thought the TC4 was good step forward from the TC3 and the FT TC4 even better. Look out for the TC5.

Default ball cups

Is it possible for AE to use the ball cups that are on the X-Ray ... where you can unbolt the ball without having to remove the cup? I don't know the technical name for them, but they are slick.
