Wow-Rob-thats so nice of you to say that.

I am tired!! I am gonna surf a little longer than yaaawwnn-going to bed.

BTW_Jason-the etc3 is handling like a dream. The bite is through the roof and my cars being driven HARD and it has not so much as lifted a wheel for a traction roll-knock on wood. Maybe next year I can put it 20 positions higher. One of my close buddies is struggling so badly with the Tub chassis-so no matter if there is a TC4-they will probably till have problems warping.

lynn-the bodies are amazing!! Luckily I didnt bash them up too bad so i am still running the same bodies in the Mains. Shane got his Parma body too. 12th scale-well-thats a bummer too. I could have been in the B-but I didnt do it. Rev4 is dialed too. But-I am happy with 25th!!

All you need to do is glue the chassis. The battery slots are already chamfored for you you. This chassis requires the least amount of work of any graphite chassis I have ever had.

i do all the work for you at the factory.all you need top do is glue the edges.i champhered all the battery slots for you and champhered all the sharp edges and pockets.
as for looking for a deal on a chassis kit,i have a kit in titanium with a small defect in the material.it is a cosmetic defect and is almost impossible to see unless you look for it.it is a .005 deep indent in the material located at the absolute rear underside of the chassis plate.it does not affect the performance in any way but due to my high quality standards,i can not sell it at normal price.it normally runs for 119.99,i will let it go for 99.99.i only have one.let me know.its the titanium colored one in the picture.

Well we ran the TC3 Oval car for the first time last night at Sandhills. the first couple of runs we have a quad mag 19 turn in at 12 degrees of timing. We geared it at a 98/55 and the car was smokin'.

We messed with alot of springs and swaybars to try to get it hooked up, but tires selection was getting the best of us. We had Double Pinks on the rear, Purple on the LF, and a PurpleOrange on the RF. We had a lot of trouble getting the rear to just hook up. Next week at the ARCOR Open we will have a much better tire selection.

This is what we had for springs
:
35.0lb spring on the RF
12.0lb spring on the LF
25.0lb spring on the LR
14.5lb spring on the RR

.078 swaybar front
.063 swaybar rear

This setup made the car very drivable but we were scrubbing way too much speed through the corners. We will have some "Banked Tires" for next week.

RF Triple Blue
LF Silver
RR Black
LR White

This tire set up should plant the rear and allow us to run a softer RF/LR spring. With the big "rock" spring we had on the RF the car seemed to hop a bit down the straightaway. With the right tires we can chage the spring rates and eliminate the hop.

Hey Jason,

Did you get the rear body mount done?
