We're glad you didn't get the brunt of Charlie. I tried to call you back but I couldn't get through....... so we were worried. even left work early to call again but still couldn't get through.

Ray:

Thanks

Tim,

The next practice night is TUesday. I have a lot I need to catch up on n 12th scale-so if that goes smooth I plan on running your e-tc3 a few times more. I do think the steering system on it is far superior to the rack and the NTC3 steering on in stock position. It need to get a lot more toe out of the back and the Losi rear blocks on I thnk for our rack. Especially since its high bite right now.

Hi,

Take your time. Mini was just wondering how it was going. work on the 1/12th scale first. If needed I will send the prototype chassis we have here. I would run the Losi rear hubs and the "F" block too. we run on a low to mid bite track up here hence the current setup I sent you on the car. If you have any try the Purple,Purple/Orange tires. they seem to make the steering work/feel even better. we run them at Cleveland last year instead of the gas rubber out now. if you can find one run a losi alfa or Lexus. Mini liked both at Cleveland and even on lower bite tracks.
I am getting a Parma Alfa as I have heard good things about them on carpet.

Thanks

Thanks!! I was thinking of putting on my Nats set-up as that is the best a Tc3 has ever felt to me. I might grab my complete rear arms with hubs, camber link, CVD all in one and just slap those on!! Take two minutes and the camber, etc will already be set!! hahaha!!

Combine that with your steering rack-might have something-though I am LOVING the Xray.

Jason-I too want to say I am glad you didnt suffer any loss to home or business!!
