Default Upper Deck

Life was a lot easier after I switched from HB Upper Deck to

Team PRP!!!! Just stick your bats in regardless if its a stick pack or side by side.

The set up of the car might also change everytime you remove the upper deck.

M not being paid by this, its just that it works! Regardles if it looks ugly or not---it works!!!

Trying my locked diff tom!!!
PurplePro3- I'll be your wing man tomorrow!!!!!

Season's Greetings to all!!!

Default Ugly is UGLY

I don't care how good she is, Ugly is Ugly and you wont find one on my car. I'll wait to buy a smaller ESC, then install my Beautiful HPI upper deck.

Instead of Beer and Pretzels, I'd rather Wine and Dine.

Default Just playing around

Racer;

I was just having some fun with you. I really don't think there is anything to be gained with the TC3 Steering Modification. Mine works excellent with a high speed steering servo (Hitec 5925).

sosidge u really love ur pro3 huh?cheers
actually now im more sure of my direction in rc.
so i want to race at club9stick) level.Here's my equipment(most are humble)
Futaba 2phka , s30003 , LRP sprinter speedo , thinking of getting a tamiya silver can , unmatched 2000+2400's.
car has front one way , adjustble shocks , centre one way , heat sink and upperdeck.we mostly run on smooth asphalt.
so , are my equipments enuff?to at least finish respectable(with practice of cos).
i know i'll need some spring sets but im not really sure what colours are right.also what HPI/tamiya tyres should i use?
Lastly:whats the difference(except smoothness) between my speeo and a $100 one?

Default What's your History

Lee82gx;

What is your experience actually RACING R/C Cars. I'm asking because you may want to start off with the standard Front Diff and countershaft pullies instead of the One-Ways. The Car is Very easy to Drive with the stock set-up and could be a handful with the one-ways installed.
Here's my set-up for medium bite asphalt tracks:

Front;
6 deg. Caster Blocks, 0 deg kick-up, 5mm ride height, 0 deg toe, HPI #6849 (pink) springs, 45wt shock oil, 2 mm droop adjusted with spacers and shock length. Shocks and Camber links in the stock kit positions.

Rear;
2 deg. Toe-in block (2-2-9) mounted normal, 5mm ride height, HPI #6847 (blue) springs, 40wt shock oil, 3mm droop, Shocks and Camber links in kit positions.

This has worked really well at the club level racing. I recently installed the front one-way diff to gain more on-power steering and soon as I can RE-organize my electronics. I will install the HPI upper deck. The car handles very nice but won't hold as tight a line as the other cars. I think that the upper deck will solve this. Also I am comparing to the EXPERT Stock drivers at the track.

Default Missed the tire question

Lee82gx;

Your pretty safe with just about any tire. Electric cars put way less strain on the grip of the tire, so you can run just about any decent RACE compound.
I don't know anything about the Tamiya tires. As for HPI, I would run any of the "R" series tires matched to the average track temperature. Use HPI 24mm "RED" or "GREEN" inserts as a starting point.

If they are availible in your country, Sorex and Yokomo tires will provide a wider range of temperatures that they work in compared to the HPI tires.
