Would it be wise for someone with only a little over a year racing TC to go to the birds next month???
I love this car and it blows my old TC5 away right out of the box. I just have not had much experience on carpet with rubber tires as there is not a track close by . Mostly have run on asphalt this past year and was always fighting my car, no problem with that now!!!
Just curious to get some input.
Thanks!

Thanks mate!
although that speedy is no longer it smoked up after 5 runs with a SP 4.0 Have gone back to my trusty SP GT 1.1

Is anbody using the K factory shocks on their car? how do they compare to the kit shocks. also i am having a problem with my diff after each run it loosens itself off and i need to tighten it. anybody else have the same problem?

I found that the plastic diff wasnt able to hold up durring hard acceleration and was slipping. Probably the same issue you had but when I took it out I noticed that the head of the diff screw was on the right hand side of the car. So upon replacing it with the metal diff I flipped it over so the diff screw head was on the left side rear like all my TRF 416. and I seem to have solved that issue... for now anyways. But usually when that happens theres a lubrication issue for the thrust bearing. Make sure that those little balls get enough grease and are moving free and easy .

Wolf and I are getting our team together for Snowbirds. We would like to know who is going. Please e-mail [email protected].

P.S. Wolf has offered a special team price so we can all have new chassis for the race.
