5-8 seconds is pretty free!!

yes I saw it but i suspect there s a lot of inertia built in his car...Steel diffs and so maybe he s cheating a little.
Plus this is probably with unflanged bearings which are nice but not too practical if you re on a budget

If I put some lead in my wheels (balanced) , front and rear steel diffs and gave a good push, I sure can get lots of spin..but that wouldn t mean the drivetrain is efficient

i don't think he is cheating because i e-mailed him for his procedure and got close to the same way with mine i get between 10 to 12 seconds of free spin with foams on. it works and worth the time in my opinion

With bearing seals it won't spin, but just make sure that there is no resitance in the drive train. Like kinks, bad gears, ect.

Hook up a dremel to an axle, spin the drivetrain at 35000rpm's and let it go. Then you can get some free spin...

31, 32, 33...

74, 75, 76. WOW, that spun for a long time!!!

(just a joke)

That cuda looks like a damn good car. Not a fan of belts though.


Back to the tc3 topic.

Hey bubbles i actually tried that. wow it spun for a long time.

i thought if it got going reeeeeely fast something might break. my wheels were going good too! talk about pizza cutters. thats a good way to check to see if ur tires a glued on good.

Chad IS fast, three years younger than us Nick!!!
I was talking to Chad, and told him that my drivetrain spins for seven seconds. He said that his drivetrain spins for two REVOLUTIONS. I told him that it is kind of sad when you count revolutions rather than seconds...

Dude, I never should have helped him with setup... I made him faster

Dude, it gets kind of scarey when you spin it like that, with loose wheel nuts and tires start to fly...
