Default Talkin To Barry!

Hey Barry

first well done with your Rc, your an awesome driver , i know you love your TC3 right, but if you had to drive a different car, what would it be?

I drive an Evo3 SL, did you get to see much of the TRF415 at the reedy, what did you think ?
thanks alot

Default TC3 set-up rubber tires from trackside...

barry.

i've been running the set-up you used at Trackside for the 2002 USTC champs...

i used stiffer springs...gold-front and blue-rear...just wondering what difference would using the rear shock tower on the front make with this set-up and if there was any advantage to using it?

thanks.

All of this give you more turn in and mid corner steering. If you want to reduce/eliminate bump toe in add one or 2 washers under your pivot balls on the spindles.

I Shoe-Goo my servo on my 12L3 (I think this is how everyone does it)...servo tape is thicker and not as secure. The nice thing about Goo is that its not permanent. Give the servo a twist and it will come off but it will never come off in racing. Check the alignment of the servo repeatedly during drying so it dosent end up crooked. I use masking tape to hold it in place while it dries.
I would agre with what you said Adrain. However I use a piece of servo tape to hold the servo down then I shoe goo it, that way you don't have to worry about it moving on you!

Nexus, as you know im not world class expert, but using the rear tower in front will decrease your front traction a little, but make the car transition from corner to corner better. Which at RSJ's is very important. Its one thing ill be trying over the next few weeks.

Default TC3 Diff

Hi Barry,

how do you build your ball diffs, do you do anything special or do you just build it according to the maunal?
