Cool I hope to see it sometime. I'm actually breaking down and getting my first TC3 of my like. I have had about everything else and have decided to try a FT TC3. I have always run non mainstream cars and have done great with them but now I would like to run something a little more readily available and a total proven winning car.

When Dunnigan gets back get his set up. The TC3's are fast this year at the track. The Losi felt good last night though. 19T buddy! That's THE class to run.

No problem. I probably emailed the guy within 15 monutes of him posting it. He even said there was a lot of people interested but he's wait for my answer. I told him I was 95% sure and it would be 100% if he did send me actual pictures of the chassis. I even told him I could Paypal him the money. I guess that wasn't good enough. He did offer to get me a chassis if I prepaid him for it first and of coarse it would be more. Normally I would have paid for it right off the bat but the guy only had 2 post and showed pictures of the car from the Fibre-Lyte website. I just didn't feel comfortable giving up the cash that easy. Good luck with the chassis.

No, he wanted $50 to ship the thing, I have a couple people in the UK who I'm sure could get me one if I wanted it...

If you get the tub chassis soon (it comes out on December 18th), could you post whether or not it really is graphite and how stiff it is. If the tub really is graphite it should be stiff (the graphite gearboxes really are!!!) I e-mailed Yokomo USA to find out what the CGM is made of, but they haven't emailed back yet.

I've ordered from overseas, and payed $15 for shipping, recieved the stuff in 3 days. I wasn't about to pay $50, that's a ripoff.

I think that we'll be on ifmar starts so we should be okay until we come up on slower traffic. Some racers still don't under stand that they are on their own clock. See you in the big show......I hope

I'm sure I will be talking to Mike some about the car. He has ran a few other cars but like the ease of the TC3. He said other cars are fast but require more work to keep them going fast. I do have a basic setup in mind that I will try first.
