What did i just said i said that the 3.9 mm chassis with 2.4mm topdeck gives allot of steer and stabilety on foam and then a said on Rubber we drive the 2.4mm chassis and 2.9mm topdeck!

Must hand it to Jeff Brown for the talent he displayed at the Nats this past weekend.

Nothing really trick about his TC car...Just a very, very good driver that boy is...

Thanks for the show Jeff.

I decided to just turn that car into spare parts. It was giving me trouble from the beginning, and I was tired of messing with it. I still haven't figured out what part was causing the inconsistent toe, so I'm going to avoid using the rear end parts.

I converted my foam car over to rubber for now, since it looks like we're doing rubber the entire summer at least. The rear toe is beautifully perfect on each side. This is what I consider my -real- car, and the one that I've owned from the beginning and meticulously maintained. That spare car was just trouble. :-)

We'll see how things go tonight at the track. Hopefully the problems are sorted out now, so I can start experimenting with different setups.

I posted it earlier this year. I just switched springs to 22lb fronts and 17lb rears. I'll make a more detailed one though for you guys. Front shocks only had one red o-ring, nothing else.

Not yet. I think I'm going to try it next week if we stay on rubber tires. There's talk of going back to foam since rubber wears out so much faster. Mmm, indecision. I'd happily go back to the foams.

It seems that everyone is out of the following items...

2.4 topdeck and narrow hexes.
