I agree.....I don't like those days of 90+ temp....and 150 degree asphalt either.....but ANY day R/C racing....well.....is a GREAT day. I know it may sound like a broken record....but Speed World is a NICE facility....Billy & Tracy works their proverbial butt off there. The best part is the racers.......all A+ people.
Sounds interesting, having only gotten back in the sport after quite an absence and the last run was nitro I am having a blast with the e-tc class of cars. Hobby World racing leaves Saturday and Sunday free to run elswhere, just not too sure what other tracks in the area offer a good atmosphere and down-to-earth folks. Over the last couple weeks I can see some driving ability slowly eeking back into my sledgehammer trigger finger, and should get the car working better by about the time I get the Demon 2 on my doorstep

If you have a link with some photos of that race track, times they race and what affiliation the track is, would much appreciate.

Does using the NTC3 steering pose any space troubles at the front of the car? It would seem to be further back then the stock rack setup. It already seems pretty crowded with a fairly large GT7 speed control, 9402 servo and XXXTRA receiver. Curious what those with the Demon chassis conversion and the NTC3 swing steering think.

No space troubles BUT your ackerman changes for the better which might be a good thing for the eletric, I found that it is still NEAR or perfect Ackerman on the NTC3. AE makes awesome onroads.

No there are not any space troubles with the nitro rack, less if anything; the rack itself is smaller.

I should not even look in this thread. Only makes the wait more painful, but more then happy to wait for a completely dialed in chassis. Just make sure them battery slots is nice and spaced to be as close to the centerline using GP 3300 and not shorting out the bbattery bars. Oh yeah, make it nice and stiff for the carpet
