Oh, I oculd have sworn I saw you post that you shop at Bruckner.

What's the webpage to the 3Racing chassis? I wanna compare prices since Tower's pretty high and won't be in for a while. I'd like to deck out the R40 a bit, while I try to sell some of my other stuff. Here's what I have to sell

MGT (less body, tyranny)
TL01 super RTR( bunch of elec crap, etc).
MT12 (nothing for it to really go in. RB is more powerful and reliable anyway )
HB buggy (Not really sure if I'd sell it all, because if I do, then I'll get the AD2 and some other engine to race at Barn Stormers. Doing the R40 and running the 8th buggy will be too much with a real car, so I'm knocking the buggy off. I don't drive it much anyway.

Oh naw, that's my friend Bill. He got his chassis for $64. Tower is $10 more. I'll keep browsing around.

awesome tip HARK, right now I have my car set up to race with the lola body, it is handling way better than anything I have tried before, but I will try the offset tip next week...

BTW this is the track I'll be racing at this weekend...

It is at El Salvador, which is around 2 1/2 hours away, but what I like is the fact that is on top of a hill and you can see San salvador, the city... lol

They have the 3racing chassis listed @:

Weight 123.00 g
Net Weight 115.00 g


So I have no clue what weight it really is. Sounds heavier right?

Net weight is only the product, weight is with the packaging i believe.

Default Lower gearing option

Now that many of us are running the LW 2-speed which uses the 0.8 gears here is a simple way to improve your gearing for improved acceleration. On the main drive shaft (shaft that has the 2-speed on it) replace the 19T (two of them) with 18T pulleys.
By changing both,the "overdrive" ratio remains the same but the main shaft/rear axle ratio is changed from a 0.413 ratio to 0.391 ratio.

Example : 0.391 ratio meaning that the main drive shaft rotates 2.55 times for evey one revolution of the rear axle. (inverse of 0.391 = 2.55). Compare this to 0.413 (main drive shaft rotates 2.32 times for every one revolution of the rear axle). Thus the .391 provides more engine RPM for same speed.


-----------------19T------- 18T-------------

axle ratio ------ 0.413----- 0.391----------

I'll try it out to see how significant improvement this is. It might just be easier to run a lower profile tire instead.

Here we go.

I also already have the cf front shock tower on the car and the side / mid cf brace.

As well the rear shock tower should be here....*knock at door*. Ok its now here....lol. That was freaky. Right when I typed should be here...I get a knock at the door.

Thats a good bit of weight savings im hoping.

Also the gpm front sway bar and gpm steering kit is better than 3racing. So just letting people know.

SWEET!!!! Thats the SAME track I saw when I was first learing the hobby!! Sick!

Jag-Great idea man. I thought of using the 20T pinion for first instead. If I remember correctly the stock LW pinion was 21 or 22, but I'll check.
