WOW! I had my first outdoor race with the TCXX today and smashed my PB by 13.5 seconds! The TCXX was very different to drive compared to my previous car, the WCE Cyclone (converted to Exotek HBX).

The TCXX was so much smoother, calmer and easier to drive. Once I got used to using full lock for the slow tight corners, something that I never needed to do with the Cyclone as it always had too much steering, I was 0.8 seconds a lap quicker on my average lap times!

The only issue I had was with the front right drive shaft bending after a fairly major crash and roll in the first final. I have ordered a set of the steel drive shafts and TCX POM spool outdrives. Will the extra weight of the steel drive shafts at the front have a significant effect on acceleration? I also have set of TIR Titanium Pro 4 MiP drive shafts that I might try as a comparison.

For it's first outing I am seriously impressed! I can't wait to run on my local track and chase down that elusive 19 lapper. Well done HB!
