Default tuning ability

I find it hard to believe that anyone can tune a car so well that they need the advantages that this chassis could offer. if they are that good then they probably dont need the chassis anyway

my 2 cents

Man people what's the big deal with flaming a guy making new chassis's. Just because the top deck looks like another company's doesn't mean you have to flame him, hell there is a chance it's a coincidence and even if isn't what does it matter?? Hey my sorex dish wheels look like my yokomo dish wheels, damnit I'm mad!!

Well I for one like the chassis like I said when the new warpspeed come out and when the new BMI chassis came out. Now people are swearing by them. I can remember when the BMI chassis came out and alot of people started flaming that guy when they never even ran one.

BobW, I would ignore the people disliking your work and carry on with your business. Now one here flaming your work has run one of your chassis's so I wouldn't worry about it.

As far as balance goes, man it makes all the differance in the world. I've raced an xray evo2 and it was a night and day experience after running a tc3 a year and I've seen a modified tc3 tub chassis(in action) have that configuration before and yes it was fast.

I have to admit I was a little concerned what would be on this thread when I returned but I must say I am relieved. Thanks for the encouragement.

I picked my 2x2 sheet of carbon fibre from my LHS yesterday so I can start fabrication. I expect it will be a few weeks before I have any hardware in hand but I will try to keep this thread alive.

I also spent some time today designing another upper chassis concept. This one doesn't resemble Jason's. I do plan to evaluate both designs though.

Finally Jason no need to apologize and good luck to you as well. Maybe we'll meet at a race someday and have a beer and a good laugh.

Bob

Peace..

Good to see the bickering has stopped. I'm sure that guy will enjoy building his cad designed car. I wish I knew fully how to use cad.

Anyway this is my prototype tc3. I'm real sorry but I can't show you guys any more pics than this as I want to keep some of it secret for the time being. This car has also been designed on cad but only in 2d. The car has actually been modified since this pic and there is a evo version on the drawing board which improves this design dramatically in some areas (one is straightening up the tie rods to reduce bump steer).
