Chris - The TC3 arms have the droop screws in a little better position to use them so they don't need to use the shock lengths.

Tony - Sarcasim....lol.... Bobby being a smart...... you can fill in the blank.....

Josh,


did you ever get to test the longer T-BAr for the C12 properly? Any advantages?

And have you ever tried lowering the rear roll center on the C12, or any other 1/12 car?

Josh you said you run the old carpet front shock tower. Would you know the part number ? I know you are not a walking catalog. LOL! I have the new lower foam tire front shock tower.

elvo - We currently run the longer t-bar on the C12 as that's what it comes with. It does tend to be smoother to drive which is better for more flowing, high speed tracks. Lowering the rear roll center will give you more rear bite and especailly helps if you are loosing rear bite over a 8 minute run...

Tony - Bobby's doing fine...lol..

Chris - That's the one....

Pace72 - About 1/4 a turn tighter than the rear diff.....

josh - i am having little problem with hairpins on days with low traction.
when i prep for a hairpin turn as i reach the apex when off throttle my car suddenly spins out. this happens usually on the first few laps when tires are cold. so what happens is i always play catch up. i tired adding more droop (lower numerically on a droop guage). when on throttle the car is on rails. one more thing is that on chicanes and sweepers its really on rails.

any ideas or explanations?

Josh I'm building my FK and the rear suspension binds with everything tightened up. What do I need to do to cure this ? It has to do with the hinge pin angle in the mount I'm guessing. No shocks are on the car and the turnbuckles are free.
