What airbrush R U using? I was trying to get hold of a Badger 360 Universal but for some reason nowhere in the UK stocks it or is prepared to order one for me

The few US websites we've dealt with that have the 360 in stock at a good price only deal with money orders for UK clients

Everyone else:

BTW, does 'Blimey' mean something else in the US? You Americans crack me up!! I'd like to visit my bro in San Jose (he works for Namco doing arcade games) sometime, when I do I could visit one of your race tracks!

Na, no one here uses that word, we are just giving you a hard time...blimey is an okay word, I guess...There are several tracks in California but that is too far for me to drive on a weekend...lol, it's on the opposite side of the country. If Major Teeth wants to fly to Tennessee and pick KO Racer and myself up and take us to Cali for a race, I'll go

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
RedBullFiXX plz help

A bit quiet in here lately

hows everyones racing going?

I'm not great on setups TC3, I get by and understand how the basics work, castor and kick up are things I don't usually experiment with though. I normaly adjust camber for even tyre wear, so no one section of the tyre is being over worked and the outside tyre should be giving maximum grip in a corner since its flat on the ground. Only way to see if your settings are working is on the track of course.

Steering throw is something you shouldn't need huge amounts of IMO, as the more steering you use the more speed you're going to be scrubbing. You need just enough steering to make it around the tightest of corners.
You will sometimes find that by reducing steering throw on your transmitter you actually get more steering as the front wheels are no longer turning so far that they start loosing traction, they are working properly instead and actually tracking around the corner.

Hey Dave, how "the pic" going? can't wait, it's better than Christmas

LOL, it's a quote from Red Dwarf, there is a guy called Cat, he's a decendant of Lister's pet cat, so he likes fish of course and sings a little song. In one episode he has a small fish tank full of gold fish and a mini fishing rod, he likes his food fresh and he sings a very childish like song- "I'm going to eat you little fishy, I'm going to eat you little fishy.... coz I like eating fish." being a decendant of cats he's a little simple
