I own a 2.5mm Demon1 with a 3mm top deck for use on Carpet/foam tires.

Everyone that has driven it really likes it. Some more than they are willing to say out loud I think. One thng for sure-they all say my set-up has a lot of steering, but after a few laps are driving it like its there own car.

Got my D1 and building it now. I am using Howard Hudsons set-up for parking lot racing with the nitro steering. I hope to run it this saturday and sunday.

Thanks Vic for this beauty of a chassis!

PEACE.....

Slop question

Hi!

I was replacing the bushings in the Nitro steering rack with bearings the other day, hoping that this would take away some slop.

But then I discovered that the slop was coming from the flanged bushings at the “other end” of the rack arms (yeah I know, great explanation...).

Have any of you found a way to remedy this?

Default chassis prep

Hey guys,

I'm receiving my Demon in a couple of days and i'm getting ready to prep the chassis. Somebody posted a link in the last Warpspeed thread that was very informative on prepping the chassis. It had step-by-step instructions and pictures. I,ve been trying the search but i've had a hard time locating it. If you know what i'm talking about, please post it again if possible.

As dumb as this sounds-tighten the nuts down a little tighter and use aluminum locnuts. The NTC3 swing arms can be tighened down more than the standard racks and it will not bind-up. if this is not your case-dont shoot me!!! but it worked for me when I had excessive up and down slop.

Fuzzy-you should just come over or give me the chassis and top deck I'll do it for you. it wont take me but 1 or 2 hours max. I actually enjoy prepping carbon fiber chassis. Its more nerve racking when prepping someone elses, but I always do a better job for a friend than on my own chassis.

Also-for the Halloween Classic-I have a question for you-if you would please e-mail me: [email protected]

Fuzzy.....you can have Ray do it....he does the second best job around

I had the opportunity to drive Ray's car. It is very nice. Seems to handle much better than a stock TC3.....similar to my xray.
