Yes I can, watch: " A class that nobody really wants, since if you want to run a wedge, you can got 235mm, 1/8th scale or even 1/12th scale. The people who want 200 mm wedges simply can't find a good setup for a TC body"


How's that?

I like the idea of silver, too.

You never like any of my ideas, Stefan. I like you, have picked up a teammate...and it'll help me pit at different times.

And besides, I've beat you enough times, You should know I can get a TC body to handle!

Chuck, without overly straining your brain, how many times have you beat me?

2 or 3 times in the last 8 years?

Possible colors would be silver blue and red.

Let me know, I'm trying to convince a manufacturer that this could be good business.
I would buy some silver graphite stuff. Like Yokomo., and I agree Stefan, I like the challenge of a TC body, the lola body is too easy to drive.

How's that?
I tried to push the 200mm Outlaw class several years back, and got shot down. However, I wanted to keep TC bodies. My personal feeling is that the car is a TOURING CAR, so it should have a TC body regardless of what you've got under the lid.

It's funny because everywhere I look now, there are "outlaw" cars running (with both TC & wedge bodies), but a few years ago, I was a moron for suggesting it.

200mm touring chassis, small block 15, lola body. Sounds like the go. Would replace 235mm perhaps.

For your two speed how many turns do you have? It never said on the instruction. But i know on the TC3 (my last car) it was like 3 1/2 turn from compressed, so thats what i did for this one, but i cannot hear it shift and i'm not sure if its too tight or too loose. any ideas?

I would try 2.5 turns out, and see what happens.

Do you have the 0.8module? If you do, then it is harder to notice the shift since it is so smooth.

If car accelerates quickly & engine runs out of rpm quickly....you are stuck in first gear...loosen adjusting screws (equal amounts), then run car again...............
If car is sluggish from standstill and just continues to accelerate....you are probably in second gear...tighten screws (equal amounts)

You should notice gear shift point...it is subtle but noticable
