Hi dasupacat,

You need to read back to know about futureal (Shane) who started this website. Shane now works for RCX magazine and this is for a future edition of that mag...That's it in a nutshell...I think.

Todd: Since your not "releasing a new car" I figured that you may be open to a couple of suggestions when you guys do get around to it

1. Proper droop screws added to the arms that touch the chassis and not the bumper.
2. Vertically oriented ball studs on front and rear shock towers so they can be shimmed
3. Good shocks... :-)
4. Proper weight balance side-to-side without having to resort to stacking up electronics :-)
5. Racer/Graphite kit right from the release date. I know this goes against all USA-based R/C company philosophy, but a few of us like graphite from the outset, rather than buying a plastic kit and upgrading.
6. More clearance in the front and rear hubs if possible to eliminate the need to shave wheels when using black ball stud... ok... I am lazy... kill me.
7. Some cool way to easily set toe on the front of the car without bringing out the setup board.

Otherwise, keep up the good work.

PS> Have you ever heard of a spool setup on rubber that seems to really hook-up using the number 4 hold on the front camber link? I resorted to that hole last weekend to get more steering when dealing with the heat on CS-27's and it really works. (Fernando had to talk me into it :-) )

jkerr-Just drill out the stock ones. The stock tamiya pistons are #58.

RichO-Thanks for all the feedback.

Same here, I've always liked having everything at one end of the shock body.

Todd - Thanks to Matt and yourself for coming to our race. Good luck at Tamiya America and your practice in Florida. Not that you need luck.

I am still a fan of Yokomo shocks. They are the easiest to handle, especially the old-school ones with the screw in the cap to bleed the shocks.

I will say that Losi's are MUCH easier than the AE ones.

Hey Todd! When are you going to practice at Full Throttle Speedway in Florida for the Worlds? And when do the races begin time wise. Example- 2:30 p.m. or somthing like that. I want to come and watch and meet you so bad. And hope you can give me tips on my car.

I'll see you at the Worlds.

Default Drilling Shock Pistons

Todd,

Question on drilling shock pistons. One of your carpet setups I am playing with talks about drilling out #55 pistons for the rear and a #57 for the front. What's the secret code for knowing the original hole size of the piston and what size to drill it out to? I was told to drill them both out with a #55 bit, but that does not seem right when the orange piston holes are already that large! Anyway, any words of wisdom are appreciated...

HeY!!!


I'm just wondering if most people are more consistant w/ a belt car other then a shaft, or is it just the way a person drives??? because i've been a little more consistant w/ the losi xxx-s g+ then my FT TC#, but i'm like a tenth faster w/ TC3 but a little less consistant.
