Can't go wrong with Protoform Speed 6 or LTC-R. Both are stable with the LTC-R adding entry steering. Good for tight layouts.

Did anyone try running the TCXX with the "old school" 0 degree FF and FR blocks?

Have not ran my TCXX for a while, thinking of running it soon.

Well, the last time I ran it, I think my car has too much initial steering, lack mid-corner steering and the rear is rather inconsistent.

I feel my old cyclone is more stable and consistent.

What is the difference when you run 1.5 FF / 1.0 FR and 0 for both FF and FR blocks?

Sure. Depending on the grip the track has sometimes I use the solid 1 piece in the rear. Never tried the front though since the split blocks give me good steering.

the difference is a wide front end to a much narrower front end.

I understand it will increase the front track wide.
So theoretical it will reduce traction and make the front more stable correct?

But I can increase the front track wide by add spacers or using thicker wheel hubs. Using wider block not only increase the wide but increase the roll too right?

As I mentioned earlier, "I think my car has too much initial steering, lack mid-corner steering".
Would using 0 FF and FR blocks help or make it worst?

Please advise, many thanks.

Sorry guys, one more noob question.

The stock setup recommends 2mm ackerman spacers.
If I remove them, 0mm spacers, does the car feel less sensitive/agressive or more sensitive/agressive?

I am using the newer optional knuckles.

With the sweep front arms( FF 1,5/FR 0) you have a car aggressive corner entry and lack mid corner

To increase the stability it is preferable to reduce the swep combining pivot FF 1,5 and FR 1

Normally on asphalt using wheel hubs tight (4mm+0,5mm spacer) in both configurations

On carpet using standard hubs (5mm black) in both configurations

Less aggressive, good for open track

But if you add even more toe-out, increases steering in tight and slow turns

I'm looking to sell a TCXX, only run once at the local indoor carpet track. It comes with a LRP speed control, a stock Reedy motor, a Radio Post 2ghz radio, 2 receivers, a Savox servo, wheels, tires, integy drivers, integy set up board and set up tools (brand new never used), Protoform Mazda body (painted & mounted). I also have 2 brand new lipo battiers, a life battery for the transmitter, along with a Duratrax Onyx charger and a Reedy charger. It's pretty much a complete racing set up. You wouldn't need to buy anything else and it's all pretty much brand new. I took the set up to the track literally once and after a few weeks of not being able to make it to the track again, realized that I just didn't have the time to devote to this hobby. I'm positive I could have had a ton of fun if it wasn't for the lack of time on my part.

Anyways, if anyone is interested send me a pm. I'm in Southern California. I'm not looking to break the bank here, just looking to give someone a good deal on a complete set up that I wasn't able to utilize. I can provide pics of all above stuff listed if needed.

I'm looking to get about 700 for everything. I'm willing to negotiate though.

Anyone maybe want the car or other bits separately? I'm willing to split up the package.


Also selling a brand new, still in package, MYLAPS Personal RC4 Hybrid Direct Powered Transponder for 75$.
