Hey Mike,

Just wondering what the hot setup for carpet is now that you have been racing on it with the new car for a while?

Hey Mike, just wondering what your thoughts were on how the out of the box TC4 is compared to out of the box FT TC3. Just wondering if it is worth getting TC4 now or running the 3 til FT comes out.
Thanks

Mike,

What's the story on the L4 backordered everywhere? Both my LHS can get them 'cause the distributors don't have them.

Too popular?

Give Larry's a call in Michigan. He has one in stock. Ask for Mike Rossi.

Hope this helps.

Mike- (slightly off topic) could you post or email me ([email protected]) your VRC set up for the brazil sedan worlds? I ran a 16.4, but the car just traction rolls everywhere and its really inconsistant. Thanks!

mike - i was wondering on what is the effect of a slanted comm on a motor in terms of performance? what would it bring? what are the possible problems that come with it i.e. less runtime, glitching, heating up the esc?

thanks in advance!!

Hi guys...

Sorry i have not been on here for a while but i am busy getting ready for the worlds this week and have not had alot of time... I will get back to all of you after the worlds....


lazyboy... if you go to associated's web site and look for us indoor champs from 2003 that is the setup i run everywhere...

tmunno ... Thanks alot... See ya in a few days ....


mtc3od... As soon as i get back i will post a starting setup for everyone.....


kansasracer .. Not real sure why ... Maybe call associated and see if there is some back issues with some parts maybe ???

stormperson .. I was running the default setup with the ride height lowerd to 3.0 mm

S-T-R-l-K-E-R .. I am not sure what that would do.. Maybe less power and effieciency ?? Since the brush contact would be affected ??? I honestly do not know...


See ya guys in a few weeks...

Mike

12L4 question;

Have any of you had any problems with fitting a 34 or 35 tooth pinion using a 100 tooth spur. I m having a problem for some reason. I don't even think a 23 tooth will fit. Am I missing something? I even tried removing the spacers, still won't fit. Any help would be nice. thanks Rob
