Did you run the new link car in 12th mod ? Do you fell that its a good improvement compared to the Tbar car and in what way?
Thanks

Hi, yes i did use the prototype link car, it was a step in the right direction from the link car that i used in vegas. i never used the Tbar car with cingle cell, so i cant compair that. I think the geometry of the car is good, now it just needs a few finishing touches with the links, and damper.

Hi Paul,
got some issues with my 12th setup.
a] Whats the difference between the pro and the club setting on the Tbar in terms of how the car response?
b] How do you screw your tweak screws to get them equal or when you got you receiver and esc in the way?
c] Must the tweak screws touch the chassis or leave like .5 to 1mm between the tweak screw and your chassis [ some guys say the screw must touch the chassis some say like a small gap on no more than 1mm...
d]When you use the Hudy tweak system ,you sit the car in the centre line and then push on each of the pivoting base plate to c if it rear pod comes back flat... what the proper way of using the system?

Thanks Paul,
Cheers

Hi.

A: i have no idea what the pro and club Tbar setting is?
I assume that its the solid tbar mount. dont use that, you will want to use the standard front tbar mount with the ball.

B: I had no problem getting to the tweak screws, I guess i would move your electronics.

C: I always did like to leave my tweak screws just barely touching the chassis or a hair off of the chassis. if they are touching the car will have more entry corner steering, if they are a hair off of the chassis the car will be smoother going in.

D: once i get the car on the center line of the tweak station i will just push down on the roll over anteana to compress all the suspension and see where it is. with a soft tbar or with the tweak screws off of the chassis the pod will never return back to center well so you have tweak it that way.

hope that helps some. Thanks.

Hey Paul. Just thought I would hit your thread to say thank you for the help at the Spektrum race. I probably would never haved approached Matt or Dustin to get setup help with Jason's XXX4 without you. It was cool to have you stop in. I forget how well versed you are. Glad to see Chase got a chance to do a little crawling. Hear he grew a bit of a crowd. Hope all is well with this storm.

Keith, Jason and Cindy.

HI Paul -

Nice job at the KO race. Couldn't help but notice that you didn't have any Trinity/Team Epic logos on your car and/or shirt. What's up with that?
