XraySteve: Yea i do think that Tc racing has been slowing down lately, On Road in general is a little down right now but i do think that other on road classes are picking up like 12th scale, and around me the Vintage class is going really good. Im not sure exactly why Tc has declined but in my opinion it has gotten too competitive for the average guy trying to run stock, so i think the No1 problem is that their is no entry level tc class anymore. I also think that their are some other issues but i dont set the rules and i dont like to complain.

Foxy: LOL

Lees52: Thanks. When I set my camber I always do it on the Hudy guages. I barely snug the screw down for the bearing so its as free as possible but not sloppy, then I compress the suspension or push the car down once to get the shocks set. then set the camber. on the front end i use the slider(TOE) pece when i set my camber, this is to insure that each front axle is at 0deg or straight. If your running 6deg caster and set your camber while your axles are pointed right or left only 5deg your camber will be 1/2 deg off or so.
But other than being carefull not to overtighten or have the bearing screw too loose on the guage, and squating the suspension before setting the camber i dont do anything more.
And of course you need to have your ride height to be set to where you are going to run it before you set your camber, because changing your ride height will effect your camber.

J: It wont fit on the plane or in any of my bags. it would require a very special delivery.

Ehlert: I have been using Dp fronts and Yellow rears on my 12th scale car lately, pink or Dp take longer to break in than yellows.

Kropy: No but i did go to school with him, he got kicked out in 11th grade for eating grass. (sorry Lame)

Chris: On the main page of teamxray.com their are the race advertisements, wait for the TITC one to pop up and click on it, That will bring you to the race report from that race. at the bottom of the report you can click on Teemus set up. Thanks paul

Paul
Cheers for yr camber procedure. Im probably like a lot of racers and dont get it exact on the front with the whole change with the caster thing.
And congratulations on the win, im not sure how u drive that fast and tight.
Hey whats your thoughts on inboard or outboard (is that what u call it) rear toe. I see the 008 TITC setups ran 3 degrees inboard and 0 on the upright which I thought was odd.
I thought inboard tends to make the rear end more aggressive and sit up under power, whereas outboard is a little more easier on the tyre. True??
Thanks.
