Hi Joe,

Getting upset already? Adrian with the FT TC3 (prepared by yourself) is as good as Karl, especially with a stock motor.

I do not want to add more bla bla to all this. There are no excuses. Keep it up

Is anyone using the titanium axles on the R2 & R3? How are they holding up?

Do you guys use the middle span suspension arms for carpet racing only or outdoors as well?

drivetrain is a lot smoother with the TI Axles.. frees them up a bit more. im also using the midspan arms.. got more steering last night thanks to randman.

R3 has so much potential.. i just need to unlock it!

I use the mid span inside and outside and for the Ti axles they are super smooth and have held up very well.

its more like what DIDNT he do?

its still not very twitchy... i want it to be "nervous, shaking in the corner a homeless crack addict going cold turkey" kind of twitchy.

anyways..we laid the shocks down in the front, dumped the sway bars all around and shortened the camber links to the outer most holes.. and im using the mid span arms now.

final thing id like to do is to put 5.75 springs in the front and put in the hpi #2 pistons.

pistons might make the biggest difference since im running 40wt oil. steve recommended 20wt with the stock R3 pistons

now i just gotta find some HPI #2 pistons to buy

No problem Chris, thanks for the help with the images. Actually from what I saw, you were holding 2'nd, but went wide to let Kevin by, and from where I was standing (you guys were coming straight towards me before the turn) he turned into you... I wasn't too happy with that pass to be honest, but you were holding it down pretty well. In the main it was Josh Numan on the first line, and me on the 2'nd, first turn off the sweeper Josh just broke loose right in the line, and I piled right into the back of his car, set me back to third, and it broke Josh's rear arm so he was out. lol, you should have seen it, 1'st place got about 3-4 secs ahead of me, I cought back up about 45 secs into the race and then just cruised, didn't really push the new car, but just kept about 3 secs in front of 2'nd place. I found a pretty good setup for this CGM, and ended up liking it afterall.

If you want a nervous car, go to Steve's shop and pick up some 1.4x5 & 1.4x5.25 springs, throw em on the car with some 1.2x3 hole pistons with 40wt oil, and tell me what you think
