Default First time with a 19T

Guys;

Raced my Pro-3 in 19T class for the first time today. Finished 5th in the "A", qualified 6th overall.

The Track is usually sprayed with a very thin coat of VHT and Methanol, but this time the track director decided to spray with soda (not good). Track was very loose for everyone, though a few of the Guys found a workable set-up, I fought a loose rear end all day. Springs, tires, etc, NOTHING made it better.

I think with the extra power of a 19T, I could now use a little more Rear Toe. Other than that, the Motor had Gobs of power. Had it geared 3 teeth higher than my Monster Stock and it was flying.

Has anyone ran 3 degrees total of Rear toe and what parts did you use to get it?


Thanks, again as always.
Steven

Default Ordering online.

Guys;

I think that I have been this route before. 'JET Hobbies' does NOT have any online ordering system, so they require you to send a CC number via an E-mail. This is a VERY dangerous method of ordering and you risk interception of you CC # by a 3rd party.

Anyone have a spare set of 1 degree REAR Hubs they will part with?

Thanks, Steven

Default Pro-3 parts ordering

sparky123;

Tower Hobbies is probably your best source for parts. I would stock up on the breakables though as it seems like they are not replenishing depleted stock.

Guys;

I did find my 1 degree Rear Hubs at RC Model in HK. So I'll be runing 19T in the Pro-3 from this day forward. When the P-4 arrives, it will be my Stock class Car.
