No more transponder clips to loose now and now more chasing up people who haven't put the one you want back in the rail.
Herm, would you be able to grab one up for me (considering it's the AMB transponder) I can send the cash ASAP

Come race at the Ayr club and you can buy one yourself
The club is paying the rest of the costs so it's limited to people who race there and probably one each too.

You could also try a 1mm swaybar on the rear instead of the front.
Did you try the Diff up front yet ? could be good for the bumpy track, at the Nats this year the Spliff, Diff, or Spool worked best because of the corner entry bumps
i tried a locked front diff on my tc3, but that was about 5sec slower in a 5 min run. that is because there are some fast corners..
i dont think i need the swaybar in rear, because the rear is well plantet out of the corners.
maybe i should try some shims under the rear camber links, and i have to play with the rear camber settings
there is very much camber if the car leans to one side..
but i am not sure, wether this decreases traction or not

2nd question:
i noticed that the car hase less steering travle compared to the evo3 or tc3, but more ackerman.
on my tc3 i ran 60-70% steering travle on the transmitter.
with the xplosion it is about 90%.
what would be better on this car, either rund a setup with very much steering, or use more steeringtravle on the transmitter ?
thx

I'm just trying out everything that the competition has to offer right now, not sticking with one car, just finding out what I like best. Notice at least 1 car in my signature hasn't changed in a little while though

The "Will Smith" award is an honor to have... but I think Randman has to get a couple of more cars before he can qualify for that prestigious award.
