tourqe steer is created from flex.dont yuou guys remember the first tc3's .it was uncontrolable in mod with all the tourqe steer that you could actually see it twist.thats when they came out with the reinforced tub chassis and eliminated some of the tourqe steer.

Default one more thing

the bats are on the right side since most race tracks run clockwise. You could run tighter corners, (its a pscyh thing) but will do also well on a counter clockwise race.

the stock tc3 and any aftermarket chassis, can be set up to make them handle the same way, or even the stock tc3 can outdo any aftermarket chassis.
BUT
its when you make modifications (mill) on the stock tc3 that makes the demon advantageous.

Peace and Happy Racing!

I have never had my TC3 torgue steer in mod. And I have had the car 5 years. The only way torque steer applies is if the car had a solid axle like in a real. If your car goes one way upon acceleration then there is a tweak problem. Somewhere on the web there is a interview with Cliff Lett and he tells why he speced the batteries on the left.

the old style tub chassis had no reinforcements under the driveshaft.it was very flexible.it didnt take long before they fixed it.once they did it was much better.but when it was flexi,it was real hard to drive.
