well i spent all day at the track today and i can say AAAAAAGGGGHHHHH

I am slower with 203 then i am with 208 but still both are 1.5 seconds a lap slower then my usual quick laps

my old fastest lap was a 17.303 my new fastest lap is 18.800

i cannot figure it out , the car looks fast , feels punchy and drives well but the times are crap !!!

i am lost now , my top speed is still good 87 on the speed trap (1 faster then the quick GM driver) and the punch is good

There was no one else there to test against but sunday is our club race and then i will see if it is just the track that is slow or me ......

Start looking at your car/setup/tires, or chalk it up to differing track conditions. At this point its pretty clear that it is not your Tekin RS causing the problems.

At the offroad nats this last weekend I would lose steering at the end of the straight also.

It was the servo going out.

I installed a different servo and the issue went away.

I am talking about something bent/broken on your car, a tire coming unglued, etc. There are a plethora of issues it could be. I don't think its fair that you keep coming here saying that you are 2 seconds a lap slower when it is not the speed control's fault.

my guess is he is refering to being stupid.
Here is a question for him: When going down the straightaway are the vehicles ,you usually race,are they pulling away from you now? If they are then you have a speed problem. If you are off the pace by two seconds in general then it can be everything from a worn bearing to a bad speedo.Do you see what I mean? I'm not trying to mean or anything it's just to general of a statment.
