Well I am closer to having something I can race than I was last time, but I think I will come up and grab some pics and depending on the timing I may film the mains. The wife wants to do some Nashville shopping.

It's still a dream, like an AMC, a Cougar, a Falcon, a Challenger, or any of the other bodies we want.

Hey guys. I have a tuning question for ya. I'm running a tub chassis TC4 and I'm trying to get more steering out of it. The track is indoor carpet and fairly technical. I have my EPAs set good (wheels just about hit the shocks). I'd like to get tighter steering for tight turns. My car seems to turn just a tad too wide. What adjustments on the tub TC4 can be made to tighten up steering?

Thanks!

For information purposes only.

Did some dynamic testing with VTA and a Tekin RS this weekend at the races.

Xray 007, SMC 5000, Novak 21.5SS

Heat 1... FDR 4.95 (has been suggested to run 21.5 at a higher FDR to slow them down) Boost 0, Turbo 0 (No advanced timing at all) Result... 17laps 5.10

Heat 2... FDR 4.95 Boost 15, Turbo MAX Delay 1.0 (Front straight 120', if you are able to hold full throttle from entry to loop is 210' of usable straight.) Result... 17laps 5.02

Heat 3... FDR 4.3 Boost 15, Turbo MAX Delay 1.0. Result... 17laps 5.02

Fastest lap of the day was turned by a GTB / Lipo / 21.5ss combo.

My personal fast lap was a bit faster from heat 1 to heat 2 by .5 sec. Could have been attributed as well to familiararity with the layout. Didn't run too many laps in TC as the AMB wasn't counting. Heat 2 would be after I had another TC run as well. 17.2 for Heat 1... 16.7 for Heat 2 and 16.7 for Heat 3.

From this, the dynamic timing helped me gain 1/2 second a lap.

Hope this information is useful.
