TSR podcast Episode
“Vegas and Tim equals Fun!”
Hosts: Tim Smith and Matt Howsen

• Show introduction and welcome.

Question from the fans, I am always shocked at how awesome our fans are.

Tim Notes:

Lipo battery and C rating info. Lets talk about balance charging and other fun stuff.
More tire break in and testing.

More suspension work. Level on the counter top measuring each rear wheel on the wheelie bar and on the chassis.

Wheelie bar mod complete

New JConcepts belted tires and what do I think of this version?
Body mounted and I used my old spoiler parts because if its working why change it, but it does look beat up.

Sneak peek of the JConcepts body’s

Testing for Vegas but I really don’t feel ready to go rounds so we will see.
I know my street is difficult but thought I am a ways down the road in making this a true race car I am not sure I am there yet.
Here is why, suspension, launch, wheelies.

I’ll learn a lot at Vegas, I expect to be shocked by how fast and straight these guys will be that have been running for a while.

I am not giving up but I know it’s going to be an up hill battle.

What are you bringing to Vegas Tim?

Awards taped together as car stands. It will teach the car what it takes lol

People doing show after show trying to figure out the future of RC but really, they just want to know the future of off-road lol

DE Racing series, you cant use any other tires… what do we think about that?

So many messages and most I never replied to….
Who reached out and who didn’t?
Peoples advice and how to handle this deal, maybe I need to give more detail.

Let’s talk tires for street outlaw, Tires I have tried and wheels

I painted another body, JC Chevelle… I was bored and I don’t really think its rad but lets give it away maybe? Pay for shipping and its yours. Heck I’ll even sign it for you.

It’s hard helping people when I must bring them from zero drag race knowledge to three years down the road…

I got a apple watch and so far its making me sad….
