thanks for the feedback guys

also wondering - how different is the performance between the 3racing graphite chassis, versus a fully TCS legal chassis??

slightly different? drastically different? X tenths of a second difference per lap?

I've only run the stock chassis (TCS legal), but I would think that the 3R graphite would give you more of an advantage. With running the stock chassic, you have a choice of only 2 gear ratios (stock and Hi-speed gear sets). I believe the 3R chassis has an adjustable motor mount, so you would be free to gear it as needed.

The only way to change the bumpsteer is to change the height of either the inner or outter ballstud, a bent rod by itself won't do anything.
It didn't say anything on the site about changing the ballstud heights but it may in some instructions that come with the arms, I don't know.

The way I fixed the bumpsteer on my car is to put a couple washers under the ballstuds on the bellcrank and change the ballstuds on the hubs so that they point downwards instead of upwards, I also had to bend the steering arms to clear the suspension arms.

No flex in chassis, once you set it up i stays...
Plastic tends to bend/etc....

on the same track in MD lap times with TCS chassis 24 secs,
3R chassis was 22 secs,
Why, better design, parts actual fit like they are suppose to, the screws stay tight and the screw holes do not wear out.

Hope this clears it up a little..
When you set the car down and then pres it down the toe in on the front changes. When racing this also happens and some times it make the car hard to rive. The the bent rods this problem is gone "IF" you take the time and set it up right. I also have the stuts on the bottom of the knuckle....

Check your rules in your regional TCS nationals. Here in the states, we are not allowed to alter the geometry of the car.

is there any way to get more low speed steering, other than adjusting the servo endpoints?
