I just put the Avid slipper in. I will try it on the track this Friday. I put an Avid slipper in my Kyosho SC-R. It works great.

Part #s for the front ?

Thx in advance.

Thanks Raul! I'll give that a try. Was really looking for the new RF and RR blocks to eliminate those freeking pivot balls. Touch a pipe,BAM ! out comes the ball and there goes another R/F block!

Hi guys,
Sorry I'm not searching for this info but I'm in a rush!

A) what's the benefit to handling of a +8mm chassis? Also what are the benefits of a std chassis?

B) what is the benefits of a avid slipper clutch?

C) any none kit parts you wish you bought straight away, or could afford?

D) are low profile high speed servos a good choice or do they lack the torque needed? I'm thinking sanwa sdx-801 or futaba bls-551?

E) any advice for carpet running? Tires, or anything I might not know? I've never ran an off road car.

Thanks a lot !
Andy

Will chime in on a few.

B-I think the stock slipper works great on carpet. Avid should have more adjustably for dirt/loose surfaces though.

D- a bls551 will work fine...but since you usually add weight up front anyway...I would just use a standard servo. Depending on how big your esc is you might be able to get away with running mm4,esc in battery tray and full size lipo with a l.p. servo...but I have not tried (I might look into this...)

E-I am running Dboots Terabytes in the rear and Schumacher Cut Stagger low profile in the front.

When you get time...search through the thread...Plenty of good info here.

C) CF rear tower and a good steering rack. I broke 3 towers before I got a cf one and the steering rack broke leaving me unable to race that day.

E) dboots or shumacher mini pins all around. I'd also suggest a gear diff for carpet. You'll also want a pretty stiff spring selection for carpet. And last but not least, be prepared to traction roll alot the first time you run carpet. And of course I almost forgot, run the car in mm4!

Great planes but not Tower? I still can't find it in the site yet.

Several different options:
http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXCMXD&P=7

http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...Steering-Plate

http://www.tresrey-usa.com/tresrey-c...teering-plate/

If you want to save a couple of $, I got an Durango aluminum rack sitting around. $5. Just have to be okay with me packing it in paper and a envelope. Don't wanna have to run to the post office. PM me if you're interested.

Plus 11mm chassis and Low Roll Centre rear suspension mounts for my 210. Going to try it with mid-motor as this car seems best with more steering than less.

Default RD Steering plate

Glad this came up as I had some problems the other night.

I switched my steering plate to a RD. Day before race I had no issues, or I didn't notice any. However day of race my steering was over rotating during RT turns and locking up. I attempted to compensate with my radio to adjust the throw of the servo but just ended up losing to much steering. Adjusted toe out. Nothing Bump the rail the right way and I locked up. Just to clarify locking to the outside.

Several guys at the track looked at it and they couldn't figure it out either. Ended up switching back to stock and issue was gone.

Did I waste 15 bucks?? or another product I should have got.

Matt

Which one? The original or the r2 plate? Looks like the r2 plate was designed to be run with no washers under the steering block ball studs. Perhaps that is your problem? If you're running an original style plate did you make sure to use the same ackerman position? (I know, stupid question, but needs to be asked anyway).

Ok so I installed my new chassis on my SC. It was super dialed everything worked great. You are able to continue to use the original RF mount if you have a alloy one, bit the RR block has to be modified to use if you want alloy ones to fit. The front bulkhead must use the new plastic ones. The truck drove better than ever last night. For those who are using the +8 plastic chassis you wont be disappointed.

Go to your local hobby shop to order the parts, they will have a GP dealer account, and they can find the parts.
