Mike could you explain that a little more? Where do you put the tape. I just got myself a 12l3 and have never heard of putting anything in there.

Mike: Life is good, the girls are great. Just got back from the Easter thing, as always, had a blast. I'll try to call this week, maybe we can figure a way to get you and "dremel boy" down this way to play.
Say hey to Vicki, and the little dude for me, hugs are good too. Always did like to hug Vicki, he he

Rblove... Hey man how are things??? the 18th.. Well not sure.. Probably not . I am getting stuff ready for the pre worlds right now... So as of right now no. But i might stop by and say hey....

ctmazzo.. NEVER .. LOL


SpeediePHATT. What i do it put the teflon tape on the top and bottom of the top plate on the rear pod. Not on the disc's.. Just lay it over the hole on both the top and bottom then use a exacto knife to cut it out ...... Then i put trinity red stuff on there for lube...



KE4PJO... Great to here... I will be here all week...



Mike

burbs.. Hard to say to be honest.. Since we do not do it i can't actually tell ya what it do's.. But i personally do not think it will change anything , as long as the angle of the shock is close...

Hi Mike,

I am having memory loss issues here and need some help!! Man-only take three weeks off from racing and already forgot 90% of info!!!

On the TC3-in the rear-the camber links:

Raising the ball stud on the rear shock tower does what?

Raising the ball stud on the Losi rear hubs does what?

MOving from the inside hole on Losi hub to outside hole on Losi hub does what?

I promise I'll copy what you say here and put it in my set-up folder for the Tc3!!!

Thanks in advance,
Ray
p.s. Audrey rode a bicycle around the driveway on Easter!! It was cool to see!!! How is Domonic?

Ray...

Raising ball on rear shock tower = more roll and more grip....

Raising ball on losi rear hubs takes away roll so less traction but car reacts different to me entering corners...

Remeber the longer the link the more roll you are going to have to shorter the link the less roll.... So more roll = more traction..

Sweet on the bike.. Dominic is doing good..

Mike-thanks!!

Now I gotta go old school on you!!

When you used to run Pro10 pan cars-what was the usual method and compounds to sauce tires for an outdoor, unsealed asphalt track. I beleive the traction additive for the track is sugar water.

Its summer in Columbus so assume 80's, sunny and probably standard Ohio humidity.

If it helps I have Paragon FXII to use. I also am pretty sure I am going t run Purple fJaco fronts and PInk Jaco rears.

Thanks,
Ray

Mike,

How many of the axle shims for the CVD's do you run on your TC3 (please tell on inside and outside of the knuckle too)? Also, do you run the aluminum CVD bones or Composite CVD bones for stock touring in front and rear? If you don't run the Associated CVD bones, what do you run?

I have just been basically working on gettig a really free transmission, and it is running really well, spinning long. What tips do you have for a realllllllllllllly free transmission?

Thanks in advance,
Kevin

hi Mike, just curious how you set up your motor for TC in the recent carpet nats. your car was a rocket! i assume you were running a Kr but what brushes did you use? 766s or 767s? and how much timing? any insights would be much appreciated. thanks!

rayhuang.. Jeff Brown is right.. Coppertone 45 is a must for outdoors with foams on a sunny day.. I have used anything from regular paragon to trinity red dot.. But i must say i used paragon the most. Never have really tried fx2 out doors.......




microrcdude . The first and most imortant thing is practice, The more the better.. Then after that learn your cars. What i mean is to try different setups all the time and learn what change do's what . With doing this and the practice you will go far, Just do not get frustrated and think positive all the time... This is as much a mental sport as anything...


etzkev. The shims depend on the axle, I have used 2 or even 1 but mostly just one on the outside . I always use aluminum CVD's In mod the plastic one's i feel flex and will break where the pins go..Not sure how they would work for stock...

As for the free transmission.. Two tips.. First one is to get the newest transmission case's they have been adjusted to be perfect with no dremeling required... you might have to use two shims on the diffs now though. Then spray out all the bearing's remove one or two seals and apply a light oil to them and you are ready. Just make sure everything is free piece by piece and do not overtighten anything...

Mike

ROBORAT..we ran 18 degree's timing with 766'd . it was a KR 10X2 one thing we did was bend the stiff springs alittle stiffer like 200 or so .....Gearing was 28/100 with a 2.25 tire....


Hope this helps

Mike
