What gives?

As a famous man once said DOH!

I guess it was just cracked when I did it the first time, now it seems to have been helped along...

It takes about 20 minutes and costs around $40, do you already have bearings on your stock steering posts? Its a good time to get rid of the brass bushings.. I used my jet milling machine to machine my parts out for the bearings, but this one I will use a drill because I know not everyone has a milling machine in there garage...

I have not done it yet...

But since this is the first real tear-sown, no time like the present!

What runtimes do you get with the Novak 4.5T 550 motor?(and what batteries do you have?)

I really can't say what the run times are. Every time I have taken it out, it has broke.

I am running nickel packs at the moment.

I was planning on getting both, WIll hopefully be able to do that shortly, since my unemployment is coming to an end...

What does everyone use for cleaning the plastic parts? I have been using armor-all and it cleans quite nicely.

What are good all around diff weights? I with thinking of going 5/5/2. Any other recommendations?

I used to get about 25-30min of track time with the castle sct 3800 system and swapping to the mmp/ 4.5t 550 I get about 1/2 that with a 5000mAh 40C gens ace. I'm gonna get a higher C pack eventually, probably more capacity too since the 4.5 is an 890watt motor.

Yea I got that for the TT and as long as you hit it straight on or close to it, I imagine it helps minimize the damage pretty good.

Of course the 1st curb the TT hits is at an angle and altho nothing broke, the infamous upper hinge pin came out with a couple of other pieces.

At least the bumper didn't get damaged.

Do you like the 550 size motor in the TT? I tryed my tekin sc4x 5.5 motor and it was actually slower than my ballistic 6.5 {around the track}, even after playing with the gearing.
WIth the tt being so light I think the 540 motors do it with out overdoing it.... Although I am tempted to try a 550 ballistic 8.5 to see how that performs...

Also after swapping from a KD36 7L motor to the Novak 4.5T 550 my temps were of course lower but runtime and top speed also reduced.Runtime from 25min to 12min(but went from 3s to 2s...) and top speed is about the same when I use 26/42 gearing.(from 17/42) But I like acceleration - I will increase timing one level in order to increase rpm - I don't have any problem if the torque goes down a bit.

Any ideas about how can I increase on-power steering? Maybe the front diff from 3k oil should go to 7k?
