I have 0 offset wheels on my car without spacer and don't see any problem.

I was running 0 degree offset rims on my car before with dogbones and I was kicking them out like it was cool. If you are going to run them, run CVD's or put spacers on the axles. It isn't too much fun chacing dogbones and outdrives around the track.

no spacers and the rims are too close to the c-hubs and they will break like the electric t2

As of yesterday... I will never run a switch. I will run the battery directly into the reciever and this is the why... My car's battery disconnected from the extension cord at full throttle and went against a track barrier at about a 45 degree angle. I broke that side's lower and upper arm, Skyline Aluminum Arm Holder, Front (left side) bulkhead, foam bumper, and many things I cannot even remember. I did not hit anything during the qualify and was running an almost perfect race until this little mishap that had to happen when I went wider for better traction.

Yeah, yesterday wasnt my day. It just ended good when I won the outlaw and got 2nd in main B. Both races were awesome because were under rainy conditions. You had some part of the track that you had to drift then another part of the track that you were able to race normally. Then had to watch out if it rained some more to take it slower.

I'd suggest you get a stock TZ. It can be as fast as any other engine out there (unless you set the 2nd speed wrong like I did during qualifiers). Found myself running the beginning of the straight on 2nd gear with little power.

The TZ is a very good engine, it survived 10 minutes in 1st gear during my outlaw main. I checked the bearings, conrod, sleeve/piston and everything seems alright.

Yep sure am. Not because the HPI clutch is particularly bad, but because the Mugen clutch is good, parts are available, and heaps more setup options.

I do use a switch, and mount it in the stock location using the mounting plastic that came with the kit. If you eliminate the switch, all you are doing is saving your self from either the switch getting turned off during a crash and the headache of eventually the switch will go bad. If you eliminate your switch, you will have to either plug some sort of extension into your receiver to go to the battery, or leave the receiver cover off so you can get to the receiver every time. Many of the team drivers do not put the cover over their receiver, but I always use it.

When I need to buy a switch, I go through a lot of them to find one that is hard to move. This helps prevent the switch from moving during a hard impact, and so far it hasn't happened since I started being picky about the swtich tension. One time I did have an extension go bad on a gas truck that caused me to lose power. After that, I would buy a switch, open the thing up and put a longer set of wires on so I did not need an extension.

What happen to engines when I use very low gear ratio way over the manual ? ( aka to gain more top speed because the track is 80 meter long straight ). The engine is long stroke novarossi LL5

This is from 7.489 to 6.062 ( 1st gear ) and from 4.973 to 4.235 ( 2nd gear )

* I'm concern with 1st gear more, going from 7.4 to 6.0 *

This is for upcoming sunday race, April 9.
