I have had my share of TC-3s,Yes it's a fast car but I found it to be to inconsistent for my liking,Where I race at it get's real HOT in the summer time(105 sometimes hotter)The TC-3 chassis in that heat does not do very good(tweak)So I thought i would try an x ray,I was just a little bummed that I needed to do so much to the car to make it work,I do have a fleet of touring cars to pick from.And yes I do know that if you stick with one car you will be alot faster in the end.But i dont care,i'm just having fun..yes i'm one of those racers..

Rob,

I have a charged pack in the T1R with 1.77 pulleys!!!! I cant let the battery sit charged for too long now can I??

I am going to track tomorrow at lunch i think and running out the pack thats in it and going back to work. I have my Personal Transponder in it so I might turn on the Jlap and do some timed laps!!! I have to do better than a 12.4 I think to equal my best and a 11.9 to break the single lap record set by two Tc3's (Herrmann and Buran). but consistent 12.4's will be FAST!!!

Ray

Default t1r

Just Bought a t1r and need to know what people think of the new pullies?What about the roll center bridge for the rear.As of now I want to get the rear belt the pullies and the roll center bridge.Are these gonna improve adjustability and performance?Also is there anything else I need?What about spares.I would like to order all of these things at one time so any help is appreciated.Thanks!By the way,this thread has been pretty helpful.

The roll centre bridge should be your first option part, as it dramatically increases the stability of the car. You would not need a spare roll centre bridge as it doesn't break at all (it shouldn't do, only if you're a bad driver )
The new pullies increase the acceleration and free up the drive train.
The rear belt increases the speed of the car and frees up the drivetrain.
I would only get a spare belt you wouldn't need spare pullies or spare roll centre bridges.

racenut123-Also add the carpet/foam shock tower if your gonna run foam tires on carpet. If not-the Ultra tune shock tower is fine!!! All your choices are good and needed.

Also Get:

-C-hubs left and right in 3 and 6 degrees. get 2 per side for the 6 degree and 1 per side on the 3 degree.

-Buy the #300900 composite C-hub kit.

-Front adjustible sway bar or the new wire front sway bars.

-Buy any top decks that fit your needs. If outdoors, stock may be fine, but if carpet/foams your bag baby, get the solid top deck.

That should do it. Cars pretty tough and the #300900 kits got a lot of parts in ti your likely to bend or break.

If you're running very low turn mods...the new pullies wear out quickly. and they don't sell the pullies seperately yet.

If you can afford the aluminum ones...get them..they are worth it..they will last longer than the composite ones.

Jimmy, I wanted to say thank you publically for all the help that you have given me. Your setups are great, you have awesome tips that I have never thought of before and you bring a great joy to this hobby/competition that I wouldn't have without you. Thanks again and good luck.

Most of all, keep in touch!

Everyone else on this thread, Ray, RCZombies, Neil and the other great Xray folks, my hats off to you too for all kinds of good information! It only gets better..

John

Cypress Midwest-Yes-but test was inconclusive as the practice pack I ran was and always is such a turd!!! (its so bad I wouldnt even sell it to anybody for $1) I wont be able to say for sure till I put a race pack in it. Also-track didnt come in till pack was starting to dump-so when car started to feel good and not washing out or snap oversteering, I had even less speed than when I started!!!

Maybe if I go back tomorrow and run-the 30 or 35 laps I did today may have cleaned off a line to run on.

So I wont even speculate!!
