I got 2 questions... With the TC3 snowbirds setup, rear tower in front, how are you able to get less than 5.5mm of rideheight?

second, Losi hubs in the rear, which hole?

vtl1180ny, I found that using the TC4 ball cup lower shock ends gives a ton more adjustment range on the shock collars. The ball cup ends are way shorter than the original ends, so u can lower the car alot more. And it takes out all that slop in the original ends that happens when the pivot ball wears.

hi Mike, nice one with finishing 9th in 19t @ Novak, i assume you were running the Reedy quad?
if so id be intrested in your motor setup, i have tried 180* springs and 767s used by 1 of the UK ae drivers at a recent indoor carpet championship, but felt it was kinda lacking in power hoping you can help
also the gearing of this motor slightly confuses me, i think its quad so i should run a high ratio, but then i think its got a large dia comm so i must gear low, im not really looking for a specific ratio, just an idea of which charecteristic of the motor out weighs the other

thanks for your help

Ok, another stupid question.... I changed the front hubs to the Losi one's. C Hub and Knuckle and now have stupidly silly steering that I never had before... The car has such oversteer it's impossible to drive.... I'm running the 4 deg one's same as I was running with the AE hubs.... I tried every remedy I could come up to remedy the oversteer short of going back to the origional hubs and nothing helped.... Is it just the added ackerman angle or is it more????

vtl1180ny.... YES.. The ackerman angle changes to a much twitchier and agressive feel when using losi blocks... I for one do not use them for this reason alone..... You can play with the ackerman without using the losi block's by shimming the steering rack....
