Tim-I would have been at Halo if I could!! My cars still in the shop-8-days!!! I will be putting the TC4 on the track tonight-but not for as long as I would like-need to pick-up car around 6pm.

But-I'll test as much as I can and try and start on a base set-up on the BMI TC4!!

HKLosi:

Hi,
Sorry I can't help you with a rubber setup. maybe you can get one from Scotty. his base setups worked well for us when we run there.

Ray:

Hope your Focus starts to act better....... or I'll come down abd FIX it for you. let me know the TC4 is coming along. also thanks for the extra parts you sent along with the TC3.... I also like what you have done with the rear of the car.

Tim Potter:

Hi,

I will get with Ray to see when he is going down to FLA. so far my wife is talking about a week down in FLA . my son will want to race Karts so we will be looking for a Kart track. all I want to do is visit everyone who I post to who lives in Fla. (and go where it's warm). and race a little.

Tmunno:

Hi,

Thanks for the info I will past it on to my wife. I'm hoping to make it down there this year. we have never had a family vacation......except Cleveland where I wrench all day and never see my wife except to eat or watch my son race.

Jason:

resent the file. Please let me know if you get it.

Thanks

Tim,

Speedline will host the first race in Jan. and a warm-up for the nats in Sept. and then the nats in Oct. There are 6 other races held around the state in various months. Orlando area has 2. TQ and Superiour are over that way. Ocala is one and then we have Daytona and South Fl. (Coral Springs and MDI). Any of these would be a good race to attend. Like Tim Potter said if you and Ray are coming down let us know and we can help with power and tables and tents and other hard to travel with items. Turn out at Speedline is usally 100 plus for a state event. All the other venues draw a pretty good turn-out also. Also there are the attractions Disney, Universal, Sea World and Busch Gardens to see if your here.

Default BMI TC4

Seaball and I worked on the TC4 tonight and found something signifcant in handling we think. I dont want to divulge yet-but it will be built into the design of the BMI TC4 I think. IT will make the Tc4 handle siginifcantly better on carpet at least. Again-this is early testing. But I am excited!!

Ray

It is a stiffer chassis and all the adjustments will be noticed and more accurate when you get it set up .. I've ran these chassis on asphalt and did find that it improved the handling and performance of the tc3 .. If I ran carpet I would not hesitate to pick one up ... there is a night and day difference ...
