Good Racer Car?
 
Hey im gonna try to start racing electric touring cars on an indoor carpet track, I wanna kno of a good car thats competitive but good for like novice. Any help would be nice

I race a TC3. excellent car and very competitive. Also being from team associated most all hobbyshops carry parts for it.

pro 4...

dracy69 08-02-2004 03:26 PM

what kinda equipment should i put in the pro 4, i wanna stick with HPI they are my favorite company. But, the pro 4 seems kinda pricey (but its a really nice car).

Scaughron 08-02-2004 03:33 PM

well the one good thing about the pro 4 it comes with every hop-up you can think of. As far as equipment and good futaba, JR or airtronics radio with a highspeed servo will do. I would go with a GT7 novak speedo. And motor wise really depends on class and track you are racing on

You can get could quality second hand electrics (most of my electrics are second hand :sweat: ) and they would work fine. Just go on ebay and search :nod: and then go race:tire:

what kinda tires should i get? Im defianitly getting foams but should i get jaco or hpi or someone else and i dont really understand the compounds and stuff for that,Its a indoor carpet track and its pretty tight.

I run a Losi XXXS G+ with a novak 5800 brushless this thing the way i ahve it geared will keep up with a nitro.

FIRE RIDER 08-02-2004 04:08 PM

well if tyou has said you ran rubber i would say sorrex but foam iv never touched. well at least not yet. i only run in the level 3 class at my track and level 4 is the only on that run foam. 1=beginner and so up.

What about batteries, im looking at epic im gonna maybe run an epic 12 turn, should i get 4 or 6 cells? the 2 less cells might be nice cuz of light weight but would it be too light?

Get the FT TC3 you won't get wrong plus the customer support are great.. modified parts are available almost in every hobby shops..

radio get the Jr XS3 synthesized.. o need to buy lots o cyrstals just to avoid glitches during the race.. dial in your freq. then go ahead to the race track..

electronics, get the novak GT7 esc or keyence, motor get the corally, reedy, or monster or p2k2 they are great motors. But if budget is not a problem get the brushless motor S5800 it already comes with the ESC matched to its specs this is less maintenace motor and in a long run its less co'z you won't be needing brushess and no need to lathe the com after evry 3 runs..

battery I say stay with the 3300's sanyo or fukuyama or GP are great batteries especially the zapped/matched ones.

tires, I only used sorex or HPI..

chager get the quassar or turbo 35 gfx..


HAPPY RACING !!!!!!!!!!!

thats alot of money, i think i might wait till christmas cuz it looks like i might be able to race my savage now that my hobby shop has an outdoor track. I really wanna stick with HPI, i really dont know why.

Wency_TA03R-PRO 08-02-2004 04:37 PM

Just like I said there if budget is not a problem he can go with my suggestions... :sweat: :nod: :tire:

dracy69 08-02-2004 04:54 PM
