QUOTE i don't want to destroy the Tsrf if mine is not a real one ! but i bought this one more than 60€ and i don't like the traking result so i going to say it is ok
There is no question of questioning the problems you have. No one is happy when purchasing a car for E60.00 and it does not work properly. Now the price does not surprise me: the standard RTR home-racing chassis sells in the USA for $46.00 or E35.00. However, the Club-Racing chassis with aluminum wheels, sponge tires and aluminum spur gear sells for $64.95 or E48.00. The suggested retail of this chassis once imported in Europe and after transportation and duty have been paid is E78.00, as both the distributor and retailer need to make a profit. So maybe it was not such a bad deal, IF... (see below).
QUOTE i'm using it without the magnet."
No problem with this, the car is designed to run with or without magnet.
QUOTE For my controler, it's electronical modified Parma : i didn't have any problem with it, and i'm used to race with Scalex, ninco, fly, other plastic cars, Parma Flexi2 (16D motors), cheetah motors, and X12 motors.... the problem doesn't come from my controler.
The characteristics of the results you obtained made me question the type of controller used, now we have eliminated this possiblity as the Parma electronic functions perfectly.
QUOTE then, i'd like some more details...
here is a picture of the front of my packaging... no more specifications
Yes indeed, and it says on the back:
"Failure to follow instructions may cause improper function and poor performance..." and refers to the instructions enclosed on the package. In this the first line reads: "PLEASE READ INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USE" and refers you to the website assembly page
In there, and very visibly, it says "NOTE: The guide blade may need shortening if used on tracks with shallow slot, such as older Scalextric "Classic" or SCX tracks. The blade may also be trimmed on its span to allow the chassis a greater sliding angle so as not to bind and cause the car to lock itself in the slot under extreme conditions. The stock blade supplied in the 1/32 cars is designed for Carrera and Scalextric "Sport" track, while the blade in the 1/24 cars and ALL "Club" kits is longer for commercial wood tracks and MUST be shortened for use on ANY plastic track."
QUOTE here are 2 pictures of the chassi ...
...so tell me : is it a real TSRF of is it a TSRF hacked ? if it's an hacked one, i've got the packaging and the chassi if you want to investigate who had stolen you your name.
This chassis does not have the original wheels, tires, gears and rear axle as supplied by TSRF. The parts on your chassis appear to be of aftermarket origin. It means that what you purchased is not an original TSRF chassis stuck in original packaging, missing the parts necessary to mount a body using pin-tubing, pins and plastic stops for such, and with questionable tires for use on plastic track.
QUOTE i'm not going to by something in anni mini in paris, i don't like this shop... if we can't have tsrf in other shops, i'll find some other solutions.
Anni-Mini are not exclusive, and other retailers may purchase the cars from TSRF. Mondialtec is not one of them. Where did they obtain this chassis is questionable. If Mondialtec wishes to become a TSRF retailer, they may contact us and apply, and they are welcome to do so, we have no gripe against any dedicated retailer. This would avoid the sale of something that is not a legitimate TSRF product, obtained under questionable circumstances by your retailer.
QUOTE and for the end :
"This is in complete ignorance of 35 years of pro-racing progress..."
i'm not an ignorant.
i said in my story that i don't like this chassi, and that it will be possible to go and race with it! i didn't said that it was totaly wrong!
if you want to censor some parts of the story, tell me on my forum where this topic is open too : i don't want some problems with you, my hobby it sloting and not fighting
I am sure that you are a good guy in decent knowledge of the intricacies of favorite your hobby, and no one said that you are ignorant. It is your absolute right to like or dislike any product in your hands. I am against any form of censorship (as long as a discussion remains civil of course and except for foul language matters) and have been myself fighting against censorship on several forums as many here and on other forums may testify. As you can see on the TSRF Customer Forum
and the TSRF's "Your Opinion Here"
, we do not censor ANYTHING except foul language or subjects irrelevant to the forum's basic purpose. Indeed, I would like your permission to post your comments on the TSRF Forum, so that others may help you with the problems you encountered.
I simply questioned what you were saying on your French site about the apparent misunderstanding of the function of the two major elements of the chassis. If you run a Flexi car in France, you know that the two parts of the steel chassis MUST be free and independent. The same is a must on the TSRF chassis and any interference will really hurt the handling.
Regardless, it appears to me that the main problem you have is one of traction, with inadequate tires and possibly a lack of proper weight balance on the chassis. Please get in touch with us at [email protected]
and we will forward to you the missing and correct parts and tires for your car.
