Dennis, I am interested in your position on deck height. Someone asked on the last page which clearance to use. Is there a need to move the squish band to the .010 inch range?

Default Stock Unmodded Engine Recommendation

Dennis, I hope when you say you stopped making RTUs, that wouldn't mean you'd stopped talking about engines

Anyway, in your earlier reply, you recommended the Novarossi S5 for an outlaw engine for out of the box performance. The S5 has a claimed 1.5 hp.

How does Rossi's 4 port legal Pixie Black come into the equation with a claimed 1.8 hp? Anything you heard about the .12 Sirio engines?

Default Setup Help For Ntc3!

People,

I am about to pick up my Tc3 on Friday and have the almighty task of building friday night to race on sunday. I am hoping to be able to have a run on Saturday afternoon and am wanting some assistance with a ball park setup for the car at our track.

So here is the run down on the track, Concrete, dusty and No Grip...... thats putting is easy. I am going to be running Sorex Tyres on it. For the past 12 mnths i have run a Kyosho V-One R at the track and have the car very dialed but thaught it was time to try something else for a change. I also don't like a car with a lot of steering........

Thanks in Advance!

Andrew

Arrow Mugen Tank and Concret set-up

I ordered my Mugen tank through the LHS actually!!! I think Sheldon or any of the big nitro houses that advertise in RC Car Action would stock them as well.


Hooked_on:


On the tires, I would recommend a firm insert in a medium soft tire, like the Take Off CS32 or 27's. Try to not have too much air gap in the tire as well. in other words, tire tight against insert.




On the chassis, thats tough. I ran mine only a few laps on a dusty concrete roadcourse on rubber tires and it was a BAG, but I didnt try and make it work either. Sorry-cant help you on that one with first hand experience!!!

I would suggest a few things though, start with soft springs at first with lighter oil than foam set-up, like 50 front, 40 rear and a gold spring front and blue spring rear. Lay front shocks all the way in and rear shocks all the way out or middle hole. No sway bars to start either. Raise car up to 6.5mm front and 7mm rear to make some mechaincal grip. Car will feel sluggish, but at least it might produce some grip. The once you start to make some grip, try balancing cars with sway bars and different springs. Also-concrete can ruin a tire fast so make sure you keep an eye on camber so you dont put the ring of death on the rubber!!!! ALso-a push conditon on concrete will kill the fronts in no time too!!!

Good Luck

But what if a person needs a crank or sleeve, who should they contact?

Or should we be on our own.
