I think the WATER should of been sent to fight the FIRES instead of wetting the track,, All in All alot of fun and did TQ the 19t class ,, and got the 50.00 cert. in the raffel; just cant drive in the rain with no lights ...

r.fenstersmacher it was the other way around . and by the way thats water under the bridge me and stephan are team mates and we all get along!

well my state race weekend was a downer
i battled a heavy push condition upon corner entry and the car wouldnt rotate
i made some changes for the last qualifier
and was on a top 3 tq pace but had help from a back marker i couldnt avoid and poped a axle out of the out drive.
i qualified 4 th in the b main 1 second ahead of stephean baker we both had strong cars all i could muster was a third
place finish the car was better but next race i have a couple things to try and it will be there.

Hi there Howard!

Your race day sounded very interesting indeed. With all that trouble and still finishing 6th overall, I’m impressed!

Do you have any pictures of the race?

The “protection” works all right, but try explaining to your girlfriend the 10-pack with 4 missing in your toolbox ... Or imagine the look you get from the guy at the gas station as you come rushing in early on Sunday morning and state your need...

But seriously, you should see some good pictures of racing in the rain. You can really see the aerodynamics work! And you’d be amazed how well the rain tires work!

Its really cool to see how well the Warpspeed team is doing in the races. I really hope the Warpspeed website will post results and some info on the team members in the future. Keep up the good work!

Regards

OleC

Rodney,

A chassis with a top deck is going to be much more rigid than the side braces (Xtreme and IRS). The Warpspeed is going to be stiffer, more responsive; thus creating a faster car.

FYI. I do not have a Warpspeed Demon. My opinion is bias. I do have a top deck on my tub.

Well to best answer your question I must say the warpspeed car is the way to go. The baterries are on the right side to eliminate the torque pull the stock car has. Also they are moved inwards towards the center shaft to give the car beter balance.
Now before I bought one I was going to get the IRS conversion ( why not it was cheaper ) but after reading about the warp car and what it offered I took the chance on it. Glad iI did and so should you.
There are many copy cats trying to get on the band wagon. But if you want the best go with the warpspeed.


Oh ya forgot something JUST BUY A WARP CAR!!!! j/k had to do it

Default question

since the demon is super stiff, does it necessarily follow that I use stiffer springs?

I use red in front n blue in the rear, with 4degree castor blocks and sway bar in front, 40 wt oil in all four shocks, I use the rear tower in front. i also have 3 degrees of toe in in the rear. The car steers beautifully initially and mid turn but as I exit I go wide?

Help please?
Thanks

Take a little front droop (less uptravel) out of the rear of the car. Less weight will be transferred to the back of the car when you get on the gas, and therefore slightly less rear traction. That should allow the rear end to rotate better on corner-exit. Hope this helps.

Just spoke to CD. He says he loves the car and will be on the thread sometime this week to give you feedback.

We are very excited about having Chris on our team.

Stay Tuned.

Victor (Mr. Warpseed),

You will be receiving some e-mails about orders on a milled top deck for the TC3. Same as you made for me for this past race. Made a huge difference.

I've got a couple of things I want to run by you if you are open to making some small changes........... Ultimately trying to get the most rigidity without adding too much weight.

Thanks again for getting that cut and shipped out so quickly. It made a difference.
