couple of preview pix!
3 degree toe rear SWB f104!


IRS suspended f104! dont know if i can get it done by the race but will be close, i need a source for really short dogbones, i found a gear box with the perfect gear ratio and gear dif so im going direct drive with it and just using different motors/battery combos to get the power dialed in. the chassis will be perfectly balanced with two 2s 2200mah lipos

Do you know how long a dogbone you need? I may have some that you could use if you know what length you need. Please give the length in millimeters as they are by Tamiya which is metric. Also, I will be at the Porter track this weekend and could bring them with me. I am not near them right now but if memory serves me correctly, I think they are 3x23mm or 3x26mm if that helps you.

23mm should work, i will be at porter later today testing my F1 and racing 4w buggy tonight. i have decided to just make my own arms since i cant find any short enough to keep the width narrow enough. I am watching F1 practice in australia right now! kinda inspiring! its good to see Mclaren stayin on top so far with such a radical new design!

I would bet at least 6 if not more would attend from the Dallas area especially in mod!!! San Antonio also has some 1/12 scale racers who would probably attend this event. What tire compounds( front and Rear) are you guys using in 1/12 scale and what motor wind?
thanks

For your outdoor, asphalt tracks, you will have to go with the firmer shore tires. From what Tim Copp taught me, double pinks are the softest you want to go for asphalt. Purple, magenta, green, and possible grays will be what you want to use the most. If the track is sprayed with traction compound, you definitely want to go with harder shore tires as to prevent traction roll. Just some suggestions.

No, but we have a thread in the on-road section where people are talking about this race and the possibility of electric 1/12 and 1/10 TC classes and hopefully the San Antonio racers will read the information.
Let us know when a decision is made on whether 1/12 and 1/10 TC will be included in this event.
thanks

the last regional that we had in san antonio, we ran doule pink front and rear in mod. Tim ran a 10 double and I ran an lrp brushless setup. I think it equates to a 7.5 turn. that was with 4cell.

to help you guage, in stock we ran purple/gray in san antonio and we also ran the same compounds at mikes back then. but again that was 4 cell. that track in san antonio had pretty good traction.

Just got home and checked those dogbones. They are 39mm long, not 23-26mm like I thought they were. If you still need them, I have a couple of pair to spare. If they are too long for you, I understand you not needing them. I will bring them with me if you still want them. About to pack up the SUV to get ready to head your way.

That will work for now, but I think you should be going for cantilever.
