Default Just for fun

Happy Holidays everyone.

This has been in development for some time, and been covered on redrc a number of times, but I guess it somehow slipped by under my radar:

Awesomatix TC

Attachment 682061

What do you guys think?

Thumbs up "G"whiz, just 4 Fun............

Aside from the Tigermoth,TM E4 and Losi Type R designs, this would be the latest "Out of the Box" thinking offered! (although quite $pendy, I hear).
Looks to maybe promise less unsprung weight, better suspension performance.
Rumored release date of mid Feb, therefore, the H30 Comp Committee must act "Post Haste" if a Ban is, if at all, to be considered!

Your answer is already in stone! Just check out ROAR's site under rules and look for the EP TC class. You would think that it would be designed to meet all racing organizations specs for around the globe! Or maybe they wouldn't... lol

So, what you're really "Trying to Tell me", IS, in this instance, "I'm NOT Cynical" enough? I always try to bring "More that Enough" Cynicism with me, to cover "All Contingiencies"!

"Holy $hit", now I really want One of these...............

Default TC6 Suspension

TC6 drivers, what are you using for springs in stock touring? Green and silver or green all the way around?

I set my TC6 up per the "Kevin Hebert, 2010 US Indoor Champs, 11/25-11/28 2010" sheet on Team Associated's web site. Silver springs in front, greens in rear.

The car seems to handle very nicely with that setup.

Bill S.

PS. The parts needed to run the stock setup, of course, come in the kit. Kevin Hebert's above setup needs a couple things not in the kit. Specifically:
--- 1 pair of PN 1401 1.3 in. Turnbuckles (for rear camber links)
--- 2 pair PN 31284 8 mm Silver Ballstuds (for front and rear hubs)

I was running silver in the front and green in the rear with 40wt and losi #56 pistons. I thought the car drove great!

Thamks for the info I had been running the the green and silver as well. I noticed Kevin ran green all the way around at time zone, so I thought I would ask.

This is somewhat telling of the "forward thinking" of the design, which I mean pretty sarcastically. It seems like many of these "out of the box designs" are done by companies thinking years behind current TC trends already. It's been awhile since we used "very small pinions" and the rotating mass of a all metal transmission is going to be pretty high and not stock friendly.

I'll stay inside the box, thanks.
