To me there are two key advantages to the TS cars:
- the rear wheels with they low ribs
- the design of the pod: I like the 5 point connections. The front central one promote pivoting, two on the side control the damping effect, while the two at the back avoid any sideways movement of the pod.

So with the same motors/gearing compared with other similar cars they will always be better drives.

GRUNZ, the chassis was standard (soft) and the track was magnabraid.

After reading Keith's comments about the hard chassis I might have to try it.
As I thought: with magnabraid the large and more magnetic long can motor will have an advantage in terms of downforce compared to a small can motor.

Another T/S query I have a Thunderslot pod that appears to take a Flat 6 type motor. I didn't know any T/S 's were powered by these, its much more of an angled pod than the standard S can pod.

Yes there is an anglewinder pod for 180 motors in grey and dark grey not sure if there's a medium.

I have the hard pod, does it require a different pinion and gear?

Pinion is the same you can try it with the straight cut gear as it works sometimes but the aw is preferred

Thunderslots and NSR (out of the box) are designed to run on Ninco tracks not timber.
That might explain it.

I run mine with the soft pod on wood. Best handling & fastest car Iíve got. Wood is a short tight track with lots of elevation though...
