I can't buy those in my area (no good hobby shops) so i'd rather drill.

Hi Guys,

We will be receiving our next shipment of parts next week (around Thurs/Fri.) and we should have some of those titanium axles in stock. As soon as I can figure out the pricing on them I'll have them online.

Steve Wang

my setup from Trackside Novak race in the rubber tire class....1st place B main....this setup sure needs work but its a start...

Front:
shock location out on top and bottom
70 weight oil; stock pistons
ride height at 5 mm
camber at -2
camber link in middle on deck and upper hole on hub

Rear:
shock location middle on top and outer on bottom
xenon hubs with one of them spacers on top that u get with the hubs(forgot how tall they are)
camber at -2
60 weight oil; stock pistons
ride height at 5 mm
camber in middle on deck

Misc:
i had the xenon kit and aluminum rear hubs
i ran the diff in front and back but i think it woulda been better with the one-way since i usually run faster with it
two 1/4 ounce weights outside the motor on bottom chassis
hand-out CS27 takeoff tires

i had alot more work to do to the setup and not enough time to do it....i was running about 3 tenths a lap slower then the top guy in the A main

so yea if u wanna try this it works great for super high traction and dont forget to add some glue to the outside of the tires to help prevent traction rolling

R/C Anonymous I wonder if your car would work a little better if you used lighter shock oil. I looked at alot of different setups and it seems most don't use over 50wt if they run rubber tires. I looked at alot of TC3 setups for asphalt with rubber tires and they run lighter oil. Maybe this would help.

3 1.2mm holes. Or you can go with Rayspeed #3 pistons.

wyd's post made me look at that setup again and
oil that heavy with the stock pistons sheesh thats some tough dampening. 60-70wt is the upper limit for most with fairly average to large sized piston holes but with the small holes on the stock pistons most go a lot lower in weight.

Herminator - Thanks for the help with the chassis, but I think I'm gonna wait for the new one to be released, just much more cost effective, and propably the same result...

Does anyone know of a car that uses the same sized little top hat shaped tubes for the cub hub and king pin? Could really do with borrowing one tomorrow if I know someone with a car that uses the same sized part.

Hey Steve,

Will you be getting anymore Xenon stage 2 kits in red? I'll hopefully be selling my tmaxx tomorrow and i'll have the money. Just wondering if you will have some more soon.

Thanks Brandon
