KAT, I'm all about a sedan oval shootout.

Tornado Racing, I really like what I see in this chassis. I do have a question, have you guys had a chance to weigh this car with full race gear on it? Thanks!

That looks too sweet. It makes a guy want to drive in circles.

We have not checked weight yet, but the BMI on-road chassis comes in under weight. I would think this car would be close.

I REALLY want to try one of these things on a clay oval with a wedge body. Absolutely gorgeous work. I love the asymmetrical rear toe-in linkage design.

Awesoe work, guys.

Thanks for the kind words and feedback guys.

We are considering a "Touring Car Oval Shootout" to run later this summer or early fall. This would be a one day race and winner takes all. Katfish and myself are going to work on this as far as track location (carpet/pavement), dates, prizes, entry fee, etc. We may contact some sponsors for a raffle or even a cash payout.

What do you guys think about a 2 lap quailifier to set the heats up? We would use the same quailifing program as the Nextel Cup series to set up the three 5 minutes heats. We would use 6-cell, NASCAR bodies (no wings), 5mm ride height (carpet racing), foam, rubber, or caps depending on the surface, "ANY" 19x1 based motor. The arm must be a 19x1, but in any can, any endbell, any brush. The motor must be stamped 19x1 just as the current 19x1's are. No "hand" stamping using a sharpee. lol Just normal no non-sense rules.

Let me know what you guys think and if you would like to participate in the "First Annual Touring Car Oval Shootout".

Well we ran the TC3 Oval car for the first time last night at Sandhills. the first couple of runs we have a quad mag 19 turn in at 12 degrees of timing. We geared it at a 98/55 and the car was smokin'.

We messed with alot of springs and swaybars to try to get it hooked up, but tires selection was getting the best of us. We had Double Pinks on the rear, Purple on the LF, and a PurpleOrange on the RF. We had a lot of trouble getting the rear to just hook up. Next week at the ARCOR Open we will have a much better tire selection.

This is what we had for springs
:
35.0lb spring on the RF
12.0lb spring on the LF
25.0lb spring on the LR
14.5lb spring on the RR

.078 swaybar front
.063 swaybar rear

This setup made the car very drivable but we were scrubbing way too much speed through the corners. We will have some "Banked Tires" for next week.

RF Triple Blue
LF Silver
RR Black
LR White

This tire set up should plant the rear and allow us to run a softer RF/LR spring. With the big "rock" spring we had on the RF the car seemed to hop a bit down the straightaway. With the right tires we can chage the spring rates and eliminate the hop.
