IF you have a chance PM a price on the blue chassis conversion setup like you have pictured minus the rear side nerf bars. If I like my TC3 (never had one in all the years of racing touring-go figure) I think I will be looking for your chassis setup. I don't feel like milling my chassis on the stock TC3 as my packs do hit the sides with the battery bars I use.

Thanks
Brian

Eric A:

Hi,

here's our base setup for carpet



I thought I'd post our setup for carpet.

Front

Springs: white
Oil: 60wt assoc
Pistons #2's
Caster blocks: 4* assoc/losi steeing knuckles
front block: F-0
shock mounting: lower outer hole on arm, middle hole on a rear shock tower mounted up front. (I cut off the outer most hole).
camber link: lower inner on shock tower.
Sway bar: either a .078 or a .062 up front (depending on bite).
Tires: Jaco double Pink/Orange or Purple/Orange.

Rear:

Springs: Purple or copper (depending on bite)
Oil: 50wt Assoc
Pistons: #2's
Rear toe in: either the "R" block with the R+2+0 or the "F" block with the R+3+0 block. (I shim up the "F" block with 2 motor washers per side).
Rear Hubs: Losi 0* hubs.
Camber link: upper inner hole on hte shock tower and the inner hole on the hub carrier.
Sway Bar: none
Tires: Jaco double pinks or purples.

Camber: 1.5* all around. (less up front if the tires are coning)
Batteries: forward.
Motor: either a Monster stock or a MVP
Tire size: 2.360 (new Jaco rims) 2.3 (old rims)
Elecronics: GT7 speedo, (#4setting) XXTra Rx, JR 8714 servo, and a personal transponder mounted on the servo.
Body: Losi Alfa. slammed or a Startus (old one).

hope this helps.

the only change we made was to go to 70wt Assoc up front for Cleveland and we ran a 2.0 Stratus.
we went back to the Alfa this weekend

and Jaco dpuble pinks and double pink/orange for tires.

Thanks

EAMotorsports:

FWIW i am using FAKK2's setup and it seems to be working great form me. I use the associated parts instead of the Losi parts and am running double purples up front. I also run a saddle pack with three cells fore and three aft. Anyways, I think his setup is a good place to start.

purpose of the nerf wings is to help protect the rear arms from breaking and also to keep your body from folding up into your tire
