I wish I could, but it's within a week of the ROAR 1:8 electric off-road nats. It's at my home track so it makes it so much easier for me.

Da kid is versatile...And maybe Scotty will have resurrected the IIC by the time he gets to 21.

Wishing him good luck at "the other" Nats at NorCal.

My lipo placement is probably a tad different from what most are doing. I modify two NIMH battery kit parts to achieve this placement. Can show you on Sunday at NorCal.

Motor spaced fairly far forward using larger sized combinations of pinions and spurs. Helps get significant weight to front end. Very light fan behind motor.

RS ESC and KO receiver are placed inward. These two components give me side-to-side balancing by their placement

Full-sized JR9000 servo (for weight at the light corner) with AMB transponder on top.

High density bumper. Adds a little weight to front end.

And my "patented" 5th body post. Adds about 1 gram.

Nitrogen in tires...j/k.

Car is currently 1415gms with regular weight LTC-R body...Basically looking at 350-357gms per corner. Easily will get under 1400gms by changing to a lightweight body for the IIC.

Otherwise, my best carpet setups (with my old car) were 20 grams heavier at the tail than the nose. So, typically I only look for equal weights at the fronts (345) and rears (365) for ROAR.

Basically, I wrote you a picture because everything headed to the IIC is all packed up.

Arrow Selling my T3

In case anyone is looking for a kit, I'm selling my once-used T3 EU spec ($350 shipped to US). Decided on-road isn't my thing.

For sale thread here.

I just wanted to drop an update on my newly installed Flying Fox RC 50mm spool out drives. I tested them in one T3 while I had the XRay aluminium spool out drives installed in another car. After two days of running on low bite carpet with 13.5T boosted, 50mm ecs installed, a wide front end, and no front sway bars the end result is a nearly new set of Flying Fox RC out drives --- and in the other car three broken blades and two bent/stretched out XRay out drives.

Besides the overall survival of the product it felt as if the car equipped with the Flying Fox parts rolled more consistently in the front end, producing a more predictable experience.

I got two words in summary - Get some!!

I've had similar experience running 13.5 at Lincoln NE with heavy braking and 180's and at KC with also lots of 180's that would have cut blades with the xray ones and the flying fox out drives shown no wear on the blade.

Always nice to hear of happy people using my parts. Shame we didn't get the chance to meet. I had the busiest meet of my life running 1/12th as well as TC. It was the best event ever for me with a very fun atmosphere and a good result. All the locals I met were great people, must be something in the water down in SA?

I drove my T3 for the first time on Sunday. I couldn't believe how much steering this car has. All the car needs is some fine tunning and then it will really come alive.
