Guys, don't get into a pissing war, please. If you aren't sure about the Warpspeed chassis, then don't pass judgement on it yet. Just wait and see how it does on a level playing field with other fast guys at a big race.

This is another case where it might be great for one guy, and another person might not like it. You never know the circumstances. But get them on a level playing field and in the hands of some decent racers and you will be able to see how good it fares. I've never won a national race, but I can take almost any (racing level) car out there and win or do very well in a club race or a regional. The real test will come. Be patient and let the Warpspeed guys get the car figured out.

Harley - My car is very balanced and very stable down the straight, but so far it hasn't outperformed my other TC3 with a milled chassis. I still get around the track better with that car. I'm curious what surface you run on and what your setup is. I keep trying different settings on my car and with each one the car gets a little better, but still...

Thanks, Harley. I have two big races this weekend. I'm going to try your setup and see how it works for me. Are you running stock or mod?

Default set ups

I have a good setup on the first page of this thread. This is for high traction and tons of steering.
