Anyone looking to buy a warpspeed demon chasis, 3mm with 3mm upper plate? This is a complete kit, I really loved this chasis but I am pursuing other interests. I've only had it for 5 months. Let me know. [email protected]. $100.00

Had a great run this weekend with my D2 in 19T. Missed TQ by .03 seconds to an Associated and Penguin sponsored driver. Got a little down at the start of the main but closed to within a few feet of the leader but got a little overanxious and hit a corner. The car didn't break but it left too much of a gap to make up. Had to settle for second. The car again was just awesome.

Hector, I tried the hub trick on my stock car, but it didn't work quite the way I had hoped. It actually made the rear of the car more planted which will be good on a looser track, but it didn't help me much on this one. Unfortunately, the problem with racing on temporary tracks is that you have very little time to test and experiment. I'll play with it some more.

sorry man didnt know it was a temp track.

if you ever run mod try it also use the location when your running a oneway.
it will be the easiest oneway car you ever drove, if you ever driven 8th scale you have to drive it like that come in hard let the car rotate and snap the throttle. you will have to set the car to have alot of on throttle steering. once you get used to it it is very fast set up.

Harley...I use the R+3+2 block and the stock rack, but other than that, my setup is almost exactly the same as Hector's (speedxl)

Hector...I was curious what type of diff halves you use. Some guys on the TC3 thread mentioned they like using the steel version. Although they are durable, I find they dramatically decrease performance. The lightweight composite version work much better. What do you run?

dotman I use the steel ones also because when running a spool it acts as a heavy flywheel and keeps the car rolling yes it doesnt accell as quick but you dont really notice too much. I rather have smoother decell. also I run mod and 19t turn alot so due to horsepower I dont notice a difference. Run the metal outdrives trust me you will like them.
