Build a TC3 or 4 from the instructions and you've got a trainwreck.
Jeff, remember if the diff has notches in it when you turn it, thats bad..time for new bearings ..... oh wait thats your hot setup for 1/12th scale.

Get another bottle of Jack Daniels and your good to go

Default slammed frt tower

Ok. I just finshed assembling my car, it's now 2:am. Tommorrow is race day. But I have a problem. I modified the frt tower to lower it, and added spacers to limit travel in the shock, but am I am confused because the spring cup is almost bottomed on the body, meaning hardly NO uptravel.?? What am I doing qrong, andcan someone please help. Thanks.

Raul..... no one runs spacers in the shocks. remove those and use the drop screws to set up travel. Get some losi spring perches as well.

McGreevy- In your set-up on the other page you are running the optional roll blocks w/ the stock to get 2deg of anti-dive and 2deg of pro-squat in the rear. How do you position those?

Front- Low block down/ std. block up? Or will just the off-set yield the 2degs. with both blocks up or down?

Same thing in the rear I would think.

Thanks

Default Roll center blocks

imprsme,

I think I can answer for Brian, if you mount the optional low roll center mount in the front hole of the bulkhead with the hole down and then mount a normal roll center mount in the rear hole of the front bulkhead with the hole down, you would end up with -1.6 degrees of anti dive. Do the same to the rear of the car and -1.6 degrees of pro squat.

Steve

What's a ballpark pinion to start with? Running on a smallish carpet track (stock) with foam. I just need to know where to start, I can fine tune it from there. Stock spur, 48 pitch.
