Outlaw is still the perfect rc class like it or not, look at this last race, so many different combos all running less then a tenth of a second apart,

Three tier of et, 1.9-2.0, 2.1-2.2 2.3 and up

under 70 at 2.0 and over 77 at 2.0, still so many ways to get it done.

Straightline showdown, live feed, event view from someone not on the grounds.

TSR podcast Episode 144

Big Chief and his RC life”

Hosts: Tim Smith and Colin Branch

Show introduction and welcome.

Tim Notes:

Nearly a second round of the Jalapeno story.

I need VooDoo tires lol

Listener questions

Allen Ruble

About what final drive ratio do you shoot for on a 2t to 4.5t motors?? Also the rpm of the motor?

(team associated base car)

Rusty Brooks

My question is for all three of you to discuss. Can you talk about what you do to prep a Reaction tire before mounting? Also after mounting is there anything else that you do before you say they’re ready to use?

Nat Hyde

Do you know of a reliable motor or chassis dyno to test under load conditions? Wouldn't that be better than using the SkyRC motor analyzer?

Sean Genung

Thank you for the opportunity to ask questions. Mine is with shocks. Specifically when building shocks do you want a dead shock like in oval racing with say a bladder on top like the 57 design setup or bleed them with some recoil? Thank you for your time and your knowledge.

Stephen A Nicholson Jr.

I know shortages on things have put a damper on some things but are y'all gonna eventually make a ESC that will handle more amps ? And yes I understand the one we have now is fine lol but who doesn't like more power

Erik Denk

Question for you guys...Why is Team AZ making so many rounds at the races they attend? What’s the advantage they have.

Corey Lively

When finding your gearing and developing your tune for your car, which comes first the gear or the tune? Does your tune change with gear or vice versa and if so, how?

Robert Diamond

Parity in racing and between battery types such as the brick versus a standard 2cell

Jeramy Joseph Olson

Hey it’s OKO,

What do you guys think about having NPRC races that mimic street racing more, I really want to do a flashlight or arm drop NPRC that includes “a Chase is a Race!”

Thanks for coming on the show Big Chief

I still want to race your sons sometime if possible?

Goooo Maclan OKO

Randy Krol

For my serious question. Chief, where would you rank showing up to the us nats with a regular old trailer and a Pontiac powered promod car and making the show on your list of achievements?

Anthony Manti

This one from a couple weeks ago was mentioned, but not gotten to yet. I’m sure ya will eventually….but motor tuning and everything about it

Charles Levac

Hey Tim and Colin I'm finally getting my car running nice and straight.

But I keep wrecking on shut down.

I'm running 60% brakes and 20% drag brakes.

If I lower my max brakes I run out of shut down room.

Is there something suspension wise that I could do to help stop the spin out on the shutdown

Thanks for the great show.

Chris Singsime

Has he got any of the other 405 guys into no prep rc? And did he ever fix the bullet holes in the meth shack? Seems like a good Tuesday job....listener #43

Main Topic:

Listener questions for Chief

Steve Raymond

Was the throttle punch a little secret you guys were keeping? When Justin Shearer commented and said I don't run over 10%. I don't know how true it is that he runs it that low, but I thought it would have been a dog. Boy, was I wrong. Thanks to you guys for sharing the info you do love the podcast and thanks Justin Shearer my car is actually some what fast now lol.

Nick Bodden

What do you look for in your slow mo videos after a pass?

Biggie Paul

So ive seen your videos of test hits after test hits. Your car looks straight and fast. So my questions are...What do you do to improve your reaction time and Whats your routine to get faster mentally and physically?

Sean South

Will Big Chief ever race in a Big Event. I know a big event will be close to him in September 😬

Rick Schaper

I do have a question for Justin. How was it driving JJ cars, and how did Jackie like zip tie? sorry if I spelled her name wrong. Thanks for what you guys do for the hobby.

Cameron Jarrell

Since we have the man himself in the house, can we PLEEAASSEE get a little peak into this 66 foot knowledge that Tim keeps hinting at? 🤷🏻‍♂️😅😜

Thanks so much for what you do man, and Colin thanks for stepping up to the plate for the show. Your knowledge definitely plays a huge part. No offense Tim

Willie Trent

Which tuning do you prefer…radio or esc? Lower turn motor (2.0-2.5)with less timing or higher wind (3.0-3.5)with more timing?

Joe Blethen

Chief … ever been back to Cracker Barrel in Alabama to visit the ginger ?😆😬

Yeti B.

I was very curious when you asked for lenths of rear arms for the b6 platform. Can you let us in on what you found in the end?

Chris Gilliland

Care to elaborate on the new method of suspension tuning you guys have been working on? Great stuff! Keep up the good work

Darwin Bohnke

From racing 1:1 and 1/10, what has been the biggest difference/hurdle you have had to deal with?

Andrew Burghgraef

Have any of you guys played with diff height? I'd think getting it as low as possible would help drive the tire into the ground like a radial car. And Tim, will we see you check out the Battlebots filming in Vegas later this month?

Kerry Adams

Just want to say hey chief and Colin ( my phone spelled it wrong last week) and hey Tim. The drawing of punch and how it effect the stages was very helpful.

Chris Trudeau

How has the transition from

"oh that's a cute toy" into

"man these RCdrag cars are just as technical"

going for you? What has been the biggest surprise for you making the transition to scale-down drag racing? What's been most rewarding? and the most challenging?

Rusty Brooks

My question is for all three of you to discuss. Can you talk about what you do to prep a Reaction tire before mounting? Also after mounting is there anything else that you do before you say they’re ready to use?

Bryan M Tilson

We see you traveling around doing RC racing now, what about RC drag racing has you the most intrigued right now?There can’t be the same amount of adrenaline there is driving the real crowmod and 1/10th crow mod!

Featured Item of the week

Tim Notes:

Big Chief coming back in for another go.

News items

RC Tip Of the Week (brought to you by Colin Branch)

Main Topic:

Kerry Adams

Hey Tim and Collin. What is your I depth thoughts on the wide reactions? Best way to run them ?

Rob Wallace

Hey guys, love the podcast. My question is, do you prepare for big national travel events the same way you prepare for the smaller local races? Any different approach to the week/days before the race?

Rick Schaper

Have you made any good passes on the wide reactions?

Rick Schaper

How low do you run your chassis? Is it same height front to rear?

Nathan Phillips

Are you both going to the Topeka and Wisconsin races?

Lucas Harman

Thoughts on the voodoo craze, are they really better?

Also, thoughts on the new 11” wheelbase pinto from ProLine and possibilities of a new class? Maybe a no bar “radial” 11” class using Primes?

Rick Schaper

How much coffee do you drink in a day?😂

Tuan Nguyen

Will we see some of the old MaxPro160 settings available for DRK. We were able to set boost rpm, pmw, turbo rpm and other fine adjustments that were very useful.

Gabe Honodel

On the maclan wireless can it stay hooked up or do I need to unplug it before each run I’m getting ready to try out the drk and want to make sure I don’t miss anything

Chip Puccio

On the drk, what would you adjust for a slight turning up and turning down tune. Stage%, stage time? Turbo timing? Slew rate throttle punch?

Corey Lively

The punch setting on the drk, what exactly does it effect?ive heard that it softens shifts only between stages to it doing that while globally softening the car. What’s a clear definition of what this feature does?

Lay Low

Just curious.. Have you ever ran the Proline Primes? how do they stack up against some of the others?

JC Myers

Are you guys planning to attend any outlaw races in the NW? Thanks

Jeramy Joseph Olson

Hey it’s OKO!

I saw Colin yesterday at NCT and with all the action and excitement I forgot to ask him what plans the two of you have for breaking a world record?

I say this because I think It’s time to remind people that Tim Smith has world records and can still beat world records.

I think too many people have forgotten what Tim is capable of, and now with Colin Branch and Maclan, it’s time.

I plan to break a world record someday, it’s my destiny. Until then I want to volunteer as support staff during your next world record breaking event so I can gain some additional experience for my event. Thank you so much for continuing to do the show with Colin.

Go Maclan OKO

Jarad Henderson

What suspension changes do you make for a low traction dirty surface vs a good concrete surface?

Rick Hait

How bout a 1/4 scale update!!!!

Crystal Conry

What one thing you think we all could do to make this hobby more enjoyable

John Masterbray

What would you recommend for weight for a dr10 with a Rx8 and a 3.5t on asphalt.

Jason Bragg

Thoughts on the arrow car? Knowing you switched our pretty quick. Will you ever re visit the platform?

Kidd Sims

One word “pinto”

Allen Ruble

On Mark Vyne live video over the weekend. Seen you was in his pits talking about voodoo air filled tires. But they shut off the video.

Was wondering if you could share anything…. Lol 😂

Jon Mobley

Hey Tim and Colin so what are your thoughts on the drk esc on a so called top fuel dragster

David Adams

1. What do you think of a short wheel based no wheelie bar car? Everything else open to replace the 13.5T class. Like a 2wd buggy. (Pinto body maybe more to come?)

2. Why do I hear so much talk about rolling back the tire prep? Last summer I had people asking if I would care if they were using warmers and sauce. My take is you have to if others are. Now same people are talking about no warmers and sticky prep. Changing rules may bring more people (I don’t think it will) but the cat is out of the bag and the base will be resistant at this point. What do you think?

Chris Trudeau

Was it strange for Colin to make Left and Right turns and jumping stuff, vs going in a straight line this last weekend?

Mark Vyne

Tom had the VP and Breakout chassis haulin in Colorado. Some of the fastest builds of these two chassis. Your thoughts on the differences of two chassis and what you’ve learned from both.

Gabe Honodel

Tim and Colin will there be plans to break the speed record now that the technology has caught up a little. It would be cool to see Tim get the rail out again

Anthony Manti

I believe last weeks description said motor tuning would be discussed. I could have missed it, but I don’t think you guys got around to it.

Anthony Manti

Dumb question. How do I listen live? I only ever seem to get the cast after it’s been aired about a day later. I’m using the built in Podcast app for apple and I believe I tried Podbean as well.

Allen Ruble

Tim Smith Colin Branch

Will there ever be drk 1/8 scale esc that will handle a 2.0t motor??

Chris Gilliland

Care to elaborate on the new method of suspension tuning you guys have been working?

Biggie Paul

How come u guys dont go live? You're very entertaining. So what if u have to wear pants....🤣🤣🤣. Have a great show.

Tim Barth

any advice for Growing a Dialed Beard like you and Colin have. Mine wont be as grey. but i need some tips!

Shane Rennoe

Tim what tire prep were you using at the San Diego race

Wade Madfishdesigns Labofish

What was the weight on your speed run car that went 167?

Taylor DeLosa

What is your process and opinions, when testing the car; what all are you looking at? Not just the generic it spun, went left/right, etc. Are you chalking the wheelie bars to see where they touched down, marking tires to see how even they wear from alignment, etc. Then once you’ve gathered said data, what are you doing to correct these things.

Thank you Collin for adding to this podcast also, it’s great to hear your feedback as well.

Kevin Kenney

I know I'm not the same 1 or 2 guys that get questions answered every week so here goes. Can you explain more on the punch setting? Is it better to set up your stages and just lessen punch to get better traction when the surface can handle it? We have 5 guys running DRK160 and we are funding success all over the ramp on punch. I don't need secrets just hoping Colin can explain its effect throughout the powerband. Also if you "finger" the throttle is it starting the stages over?

James Gallatin

When are you getting your kart?

Servo Horn:

Attaches to the servo and is the link between the servo and the steering linkage.

 

Servo Saver:

Usually a servo horn that uses a spring to absorb sudden shock or impact coming from the servo linkage. This helps prevent breakage of the servo.

 

 

Main Topic:

Facebook Questions

Corey Lively

What are your thoughts on a 1.7 pass being put down by Sean Stanford running a REAR MOTOR car with a Shark body during the testing before the event? Pretty cool and seems to have went a bit under the radar with all the other awesome stuff going on during the event.

 

Kidd Sims

Now that we have two mega races in the books. What could I (as a mega race promoter) improve on to insure everyone has a great time.

 

Chris Gilliland

Track temps definitely played a role in traction for the event. How do you know when to turn it down?? Great meeting you finally!!

 

Willie Trent

Tim Smith with it being a concrete surface I think a lot of people expected to see some record times being ran but that didn’t exactly happen. I know the surface was good and had bite but was it also not as good as everyone expected? It looked really coarse and not as smooth as one would expect and seemed to being giving people trouble especially on the big end.

 

Kerry Adams

First I want to say that was an awesome weekend. Second I wish Matt could have been there to see those sub 2 second runs. I would have liked to see the look on his face. Question is now is everyone ready for Colorado in July?

 

Jeremy Oldham

Went no prep racing for my first time Sunday and now I'm hooked. First time I was right there with my car thanks to your show it went straight and fairly fast.

Ok now for my question:

What can we do to get Joe Zaier Jr to try drag racing?

 

Kerry Adams

Oh and Tim you were so nice to chat with my girlfriend about sunburned ears.

 

Brad Waldrop

It was great meeting you, i had a wonderful time can’t wait for the next one!

 

Lonnie DeTurck

Love your podcast.

My question is on “discharge” before charging your battery to help IR and help the battery from dropping voltage. What do you recommend and if discharging is needed what unit do you recommend and at what rate to discharge.

Thanks a bunch

 

Yeti B.

What did you think of the firebird body?

 

Chip Puccio

Slipper or slipper eliminator and why?

 

Brian Elkins

Consistency or Send it? What do you think made it farther..

 

Yeti B.

What is next for toy tim?

 

 

Rick Schaper

Did you try stiffening up the rear suspension dampening for the added traction?

 

JC Myers

I have a question about tires at bracket races. How do you recommend handling tires between rounds? Do you clean and prep 1 set or do you ever swap tires to save time. I always end up scrambling between rounds. Thanks and Love the show!

 

Joe Zaier Jr

If the no prep cars are running the same times of a proper pro stock, what's the point of no prep? It seems like people are lighting money on fire for the sake of lighting money on fire. I'm just a spectator in this

Camber:

The angle, from vertical, of the wheels. Negative camber is when the top of the tire is closer to the center of the vehicle than the bottom of the tire. Negative camber is commonly used to add stability in bumps. Positive camber is when the bottom of the tire is closer to the center of the vehicle than the top of the tire. Positive camber is not commonly used.

Flash back to the dead pool car chase, Jay Halsey was the man behind the wheel of what is still one of the most iconic chase scenes in movie history. 'The Dead Pool' was a 1988 crime film starring Clint Eastwood. A modified RC10 with lowered suspension was used with a 1963 Chevy Corvette body, and ultimately was blown up at the end of the scene. The filming was iconic and the scene is still super cool to watch to this day!

Still no Live RC love….. oh well

Featured Item of the week

SSI-065 SIMPLE SOLDERING IRON 89.99

The Maclan Racing SSI series soldering iron is one of the best tool investments a racer can make. The iron is light weight, compact, and designed for high heat performance with superb safety features. This soldering iron will operate from 12V to 24V DC power. We recommend using 6S Li-Po battery for the best performance as the iron will heat to 840°F (450°C) in just about 10 seconds.

The built-in safety features will automatically cool the iron to 400°F if it’s not moved for 3 mins and will completely shut off power and go into standby mode after 6 mins of idle time. The OLED screen displays iron status and adjustment information. All parameters can be easily and quickly adjusted by the buttons on the handle.

SSI-065 Features:

MCU control and program for precise temperature and safety control

Maximum 840+°F (450°C) temperature for RC applications

OLED display for easy reading status

Portable size and light weight for easy transportation to race events

Maximum 65W output with 24V power input

Built-in safety parameters to protect battery voltage and soldering iron tip lifespan

CE & FCC certified
