Actually it's because it's a better car. First in stock at the Champs, 3rd in Mod. They're both competent chassis. Alot of what Smyka says is true on this debate, but I think Frank actually believe the 'knife is a better car as well.

Of course he believes it's better... I can't say one way or another since I haven't driven a Knife yet, but I'm sure it's a damn good car. However I don't think where the CK finished at the champs has much to do with the T-Fource being an inferior car and everything to do with the fact that that's what Frank would like team drivers to run. Had he wanted team drivers to run T-fources I bet the results would have been much different.

However if someone really believes the CK is a better car and has driven both it and the T-fource I'd love to hear your opinion on the differences between the cars, handling wise that is.

Thanks,
Ike

My car has no steering on-power. I think I've tried about everything setup wise. My dad thinks its an akerman issue but his T-Force has the same steering link angles as mine yet his car actually steers. Tried his setup and everything, no dice. Only difference between his car and mine are the servos (Airtronics vs JR) and his car has the thicker chassis plate and mine is standard (oddly, the standard chassis usually works better on the track we run at)

When's the last time you replaced your T-bar, or are you running the springs?

I must assume that you have tried it with your batts all the way forward.
Even 1mm forward/backward has an effect with my t-force.
Amount of sauce on the front tires also plays a huge role.
Have you guys swapped servos????

Its the kit CF T-Bar, Its been in the car for a bit. I am using the side springs (tried whites and reds)

My batteries are all the way forward with the full front tire sauced. The car doesn't feel tweaked though, just NO on-power steering. We don't think its the servo causing the car to push (I just paid $50 for that f#@ker anyway!) I'm thinking about getting the thicker bottom plate to try (or an L4...LOL)
