He's talking about little improvised differences using thin copper wire and shims. You can't really feel you made a change, and it's a pretty ghetto way of tuning.

Yeah, that's one way you can adjust camber, but I wouldn't do that with mine.

Now I'm curious................

Gotta car, a micro, that does "68" mph, right?
And you wrecked it a decent number of times, right?
And your car has mostly c/f and aluminum parts, right?

Don't take this the wrong way bub, but you HAD to break something, even bent the aluminum cvds when you either broadside a curb or smack it head on, even hit a deep bump and rolled it. 1/10 cars doesn't even withstand that much abuse at 50 mph without breaking something. You said you have a TC3, right? I did too a while back; sold it cause I was constantly snaping the A arms off of PVC pipe during races. Hell, I broke the landing strut on me helicopter cause it lifted off on its maiden flight cause I got scared and brought it down too quickly.

Its height: 2ft.
Flight speed? 3mph.


A micro going 68mph? Parts break at that speed.

Also, my motorcycle can't take a 540, it is too big. The space inside is only big enough to fit a micro size or silghtly larger motor. And I already running 1200 mAh NiMh sub-c , the original pack were only 700mAh. I'll post a pic of the bike when I get a chance.

I have an after market foam bumper in the front that does a Great job of protecting my car, Also, the aluminum parts are very strong, and the body doesn't have as much "give" to it so it helps protect the car too. One of the times it went of the road and hit a fence, it just jarred the electronics loose a bit. (I've only wrecked it twice, I think) If I would of had plastic parts on it, they would of broke.

Also, when I raced my tc3, I only broke suspension arms when I first started, but I never did any bad wrecks after my first time.

It would seem he knows it does this speed as the AE speed calculator says it does . Rick

Ok, that wasn't that funny.

Oh yeah, it doesn't go 68mph. It goes over 70 now.

I got a buddy that has a micro over here. He runs on the tennis court on post. His car is pretty fast, so I'll let him know about yuor car. Post me your setup here, so he can buy the nesescary parts. I'm sure he'll want to go that fast.
