Next season?? we have not finished ours yet!

Funny world, you talking about Summer when it is Autumn here.

No indoor here either but we get some fairly good weather to race outdoor from time to time

qualified in 3rd, car was very nice, but the putty in my front diff got too soft in the second and 3rd final so ended up 4th.

I'll have to put the TC3 on scales, but no motor inside at present, had to take it out to replace my son's X12 cos his bearing got locked in his own X12.

He also moved to 4th overall in our league, very happy with this too.

[QUOTE=bertrandsv87;9790485]You got two laps left to catch up, but how was your top speed down the straight compared to the TQ guy ? What was your final position ?[/QUO

I'm going to change to a larger spur/ pinion combination, but keep the same FDR. What I think is happening is my motor is spooling up too fast my ESC setting in comparison are the same.

Here our main "B", normally we only have one main with 9 cars. (White car)

I have a set of Tamiya...silvers I think (if this is what they are called)
Had not try them yet but was thinking to put them in the TC3 as they would be an improvment ont AE old shocks

There was an improvement in acceleration, but still lacking speed. I changed my gearing now my FDR is 4.9 matching what DW used when he was racing his TC4 I can't match the belt cars too slow.

From the video I watched, your car looks a bit "sluggish" and wandering on reqr end, you need to improve your racing lines too, because of the rear, you end up a little too wide and you are not keeping enough speed coming out of corners and loosing acceleration.

The green car that was on pole is very fast...

I just received a new lock diff for the front of TC3, but unforunately, cannot try anything as I am in bed on my back with lower back problems after trimming the edges of my garden, 3rd day like that but improving everyday, able to get up today.

4.9 is boosted motor temp around 130* after 6 minutes. Haven't worked on a setup about the only thing I did was replace the 0* caster with 4*. I know I don't like a spool, I didn't like it on my TCX.

I've matched the FDR of the other cars (belt). I have talked with David W he had the fastest TC4 (FDR 4.9), this weekend is our last asphalt race so I'll see if 4.9 will work for me in practice I notice the difference.
