Geez, how much did yall shorten it? Can't be that bad, I've always found the stock TC3 tub to be a little longer in WB than other cars.

proud the car is shorter then the the stderd car by 5 mm and the std car is 258
which is why the car works great .
actually proud winner most other cars are about 258 to 262 in length so the regular tc3 isnt that long.

Man tell me about it, I'm very sure the new rear end makes the front work better on the corners.

proud we also figuerd out the car likes the std front tower on asphalt on carpet with a high bite situation where you are traction rolling the rear tower up front will be the ticket especially with foam.
note proud we are running the cars here in florida outside on asphalt with take off 27's so we dont have that much steering.

Man you are gonna make me go back to Associated. The AE shaft drive system is the best I know of as the others are having either diff gears stripping or tweaked carsyk. I do miss it, there was definatley no problem with power out of the corners..

Well you do not have to worry about stripping Warpspeed cases. They have heli-coils in every hole.

Nice Muf, not really woried bout cases, when the screw stops that's it, no need to try to get a little more tickle out of it, these Evo3's can't stop bustin diff gears.

wwhat helps the car is that it need less rear toe which increases straight away speed and less drag in the corners
you all tried the f block in the rear yet !.

The Idea was to be able to buy one set of blue printed cases and never need another set. The bearing journals are relieved and the shock towers won't pull the screws out in a crash. Alot of TC3 guys actually run their screws loose on the cases to free up the car (which leaves you vulnerable to a mid run tweak). You can crank these down and the car will still be free.

Thanks guys-on those notes-I already know the changes I want to make. I am staring with the r block, but 1/2 Losi degree blocks backwards. if thats not enough, then I am going with 1* Losi blocks backwards. And if thats still not enough-then I am going with the F-block in the rear with a R+3-0 with Losi 1/2 backwards.

IN order that would be 1.5* rear toe-in, 1* toe-in and finally 1.5* rear toe in, but with reduced inner toe in on the arms.

Thanks for the tips on the body. I actually was contemplating moving the body ahead so that it moves the rear wing and downforce further forward. Again-I can always cut the rear wing down a bit.

ray i had custom toe blocks i dont remember who made them i think the guys that made those arms and steering knuckle but i have a comple set it even included the f and r block in aluminum.
this set included a r-1-0 block which is what i amd using i figure if i run the losi blocks that will give me a total of 1/2 degree total?

also i think cutting a 1/8 of the leading edge of the wing and 1/4 of trailing will take care of it! ray have you tried any of it.

Victor,

Any thoughts on lowering the top deck and coming out with a milled version for more tuning options? The tub car milled out could probably benefit from a not so stiff/heavy top deck. Car is stiff as is, but is weakened when milling much of the material away. I cannot afford that much weight and not so sure I need it a such a stout deck. I guess I could have one of your's milled out........ Hmmmm!

Ray,
This weekend is the test. Doing it this time~
