Barry,

For carpet, what kind of shock springs/oil/pistions do you like running in your TC3?

What kind of tire/insert/traction compound combos do you like to run also for your carpeted TC3?

Ok you can go back and finish your golf game....

Coop

Barry, when do you use the front one way ? How much do you tighten your rear diff ? does a loose rear diff gives more steering? NTC3

hey B squared. sorry I couldnt come down for the Nats in Carolina. BTW, your gonna get that world title soon enough. I was quite heartbroken when you crashed out of the 3rd A in South Africa. Although you seem to dominate pretty well at the Reedy Race! Maybe they should rename it the Barry Baker Invitational class

Anyhoo, I just picked up a TC3 off Ebay last week. I am so amped (no pun intended) about runnin it too.


Are you plannin on goin to the Snowbirds in Orlando? Im hopin to run TC stock there, and I would LOVE to meet you.

Barry, what's your take on 1/5 scale in America, do you think it will ever grow to be just as popular as 1/10? I'm one of the very few 1/5 scale racers in Florida and everyone that I talk to about 1/5 scale loves it, until they hear what the price tag is.

We have two new beautiful european style tracks here in Florida which are perfectly suited for 1/5 scale, it's just there are no 1/5 scale owners!

Any tips you can give me on showing people the 1/5 scale light?

I agree with C5R01, That boy can drive like theres no tomorrow. He went head to head with Dave "Locked Diff" Jun in the 201 invitational class, I still haven't been able to make my car make those kind of noises. Hey Barry are you coming to Detroit anytime soon?

I think his exact words were -

"Everything that happens here is my fault, right?!?!"

Or maybe that was at the GP. I forget.

Hello Barry !

I find it very nice that another pro driver takes the time to answer questions here.

As you are working for associated can you give us a small preview what is coming up next ?
Ive heard some rumours that there possibly will be an update for the TC3. I know that you cannot talk about the details since associated will decide when to release the infos. I just want to know if it will be running changes as the white gears, plastic diffs, drive shaft, a.s.o. or will it be a complete new kit or possibly a upgrade kit (like the B2 to B3 conversion kit).

Thanx for your your answers in advance.
