How does the CRC run???? I still haven't got round to buying that car yet.....
im not sure..it MIGHT be a psychologial thing, but i think it handles beetter than the AE....theres seriously nothing different from the AE chassis. just that cuz the front end of the CRC is stronger than the AE one, thast why i got it!

its a nice car...but i wont drive 12th in hk tho..haha...getting tired of it...alwasy racing it! ill run either TC or GP!

You have not put the side spring conversion onto the car??

You need to change the cars occassionally...otherwise boredom sets in.....We even managed to get bored of the Xray. Thats why we now run GP in winter......1/12 in spring and........EP TC in summer.....

Haha...that sounds about right.....I stilll have not found a brand of liquid mask which I can really use on the shells in Hong Kong....liquid mask should be better for sharp corners....

oh, i tried the springs suspension, i didnt really lke it..cuz theres 2 notches on the rear upper brace, and the motor tabs alwasy hits it when going through a corner!! i kinda like the t-plate better =)

haha..i know, im not bored of the 12th right now, but i will be, so thats why i jacked my brothers GP so i could race it once the stupid ass SNOW MELTS!! MELT DAMNIT MELT!!!!!
i would do TC if he battery didnt cost so much!!

Batteries very cheap in HK......just take a couple of boxes of GP3300 over!!

The majority of the 3300 appear to have 3500+mah in now a days.....some even going to 3800+mah ! I can see how it is quite easy to sacrifice the mah to really boost up the Avg V. Although in honesty I still think "Avg V" is the "next best thing" for matching.....

we dont run mod here! the track is too small, so we run stock! and we need all the voltage we need for stock! so Voltage is really important!

hehe...i know i could bring a shit load of cells back, but then..matching takes forever! andnot all the cells are closely matched! therse gonna so much junk cells!

It is a very common mis-understanding...even between some of the supposed "Pros" in HK.......they all look to achieve high "Avg V" without really considering the discharge time. I'm sure some of then don't know what "avg" means.....

Some of the "crap chat" I hear on the track and around MK makes me laugh and wonder if these guys ever did Maths at school! A 1.148v 440s cell will normally have a higher Avg V than a 1.152v 420s cell (measured over the same time period ie.420s) . Thats why it is not always good to simply go by Avg V nos.....there are a lot of other considerations too......

I would like to see some battery matchers do their cells by comparing the full discharge curve rather than simply Avg nos.......
