Eirik - Thanks!!!

JohnnyRingo - Nope, I will still be with Kyosho for all 1/8 on and off-road racing as well as Kyosho's 200mm sedan...

Dennis - I'm not really sure...lol.. Yesterday was only my 2nd time ever running my Xray. I'm testing all sorts of stuff because I just don't know the set-ups and what the car can do.....

Josh, What difference does mounting the servo flat and mounting it on a angle make in a 1/12 car ? I have a CRC 6 pack. See ya in Cleveland.

Matt - With the servo up you will tend to have more steering in highspeed corners. With it down you will have more steering in hairpins - just remember to adjust for bumpr steer - this makes a huge difference!!
I asked the same question a couple days ago

Matt, thanks. I looked for the answer but didn't look far enough back.
I just have to figure out how far forward or in general figure out where to mount the servo for Cleveland. I have driven 1/12 but never owned one. All the small things make a big difference.

First 12th scale, and your first race will be Cleveland??

Nothing like jumping in with both feet!!! There will be plenty of helpful advice to be had at Cleveland I'm sure. The big guys will be there, as well as a fairly sizeable Canadian contingent. Just make sure you get there early enough to get some practice time and most of all...Good luck and Enjoy!!

Chris, look at the first page of RC Tech and click on the Haloween race report. I took a few pictures of some 1/12th scale cars. That should help you out some. Good luck!

Windsorguy, Scott Smithers is helping with my cars tomorrow. I should be fine. I will probably give it a shakedown tues. If work didn't take so much time I would be better prepared. LOL!!! To many hours of work and time on the road. Scott has been a lot of help. You could do a lot worse for a guy to help ya. Walter Henderson has been helpful as well. He always answers my questions. I more worried about it not handling than i am my driving. If it handles I can only blame myself for the rest.I think I may go down and run at the gate on Wed. afternoon. But then again maybe I can blame Scott. Hmmmm!!! LOL!! It should be a blast. I think I may go down and run at the gate on Wed. afternoon.

In a picture of your TC3, it looked like you had front arms on the rear of the car. Is that right? If so, what was the advantage? Also, I read once that you used a (F) arm mount in place of the (R) mount in the rear. Was that to change the roll center? Did it give it more rear traction entering the turn?
Thanks for any help.

The offroad season went very well. I won a 4 of 5 before the sprucewood invitational where Dave Henry was a little to fast to catch. My throttle linkage was sticking. I doubt I could have caught him anyways. Next summer I'm going for the offroad title at Full Throttle Raceway in 1/8th and 1/10th. I still havn't seen one of Josh's 1/12 bodies. I will talk to Josh in Cleveland. Martin Crisp just changes the springs on his car for rubber. He runs mod with the same car. He said the car felt better with that set-up than his regular rubber tire set-up. Gota go. Yeah it kinda makes it tough. It depends on how much time in between heats. I probably wouldn't bother. It's way to time consuming to change car settings.

RBLove,

Tamiya makes the one that I have. I don't know if it's the same one Josh has. I know Ride sells one too. They look identical and work the same way. I email you the part number if I can dig it up.

See ya Wed!
