I dint like the 4 gear exactly on this buggy is the reason why i went to 3 gear . It felt to tight and lazy and pushy .

Note i run mid motor .

I didn't see that the car felt any more powerful or faster... and from what Ive read it can cause the car to be loose so why not change back. Where is the benefit to staying 3 gear?

Is your car loose? What are you trying to "fix"?

Car has a tendency to get loose in some areas of the track, yes.. that's what we've been talking about the last few pages. I think you came in on the back end of the conversation here...

That was my original post a couple pages back.. that we've been talking about. My comment about going back to 4 gear was an extension of that.

What is the best thing to do on this car to pickup some easy rear grip?? My local track is clay and I notice sometimes towards the end of the day the high traffic areas of the track will get dusty and the car starts to kick out suddenly if you aren't really careful. I moved the rear camber link out on the hub which seemed to help...but it still breaks loose at times. And when it goes...it goes quick and stuff the nose right into a pipe before you can do a thing..no talking her out of it.

Running 17.5 turn motor, stock setup except for the rear link and I'm running the 3 gear transmission included in the champions edition. Running the same tires 90% of the guys at this track run...

Otherwise I've been really happy with the car.

__________________

We've gone over several options... probably going to get a softer set of rear springs to try. Definitely going to try bringing the rear hubs in and might go back to 4 gear if those don't work. Or might go back to the 4 gear anyway because I just don't see any benefit in running the 3. Ultimately Im sure that's going to be preference from driver to driver. I'm used to 4wd 1:8 scale so a 1:10 2wd can feel pretty loose to me.

Try turning your steering down from 100% to 90% and see if that helps...

Can anyone running the reedy blackbox tell me if you notched the chassis brace forward of battery to clear the PCB?
Thanks

You can remove the brace behind the servo for a little more room.

Guarantee this problem is not that difficult to solve.

I cut the back brace . Cuthings the brace behind the servo is still a tight fit with that board on the esc.

4 gear isn't going to magically solve the problem.

I'd recommend one of the experts at your track drive your car and maybe go thru it.

see what the other b5m's setups are at the track that are working. note their spring selection, shock positions and piston/oil setups as well as limiters and shims in front and back on the front and rear bulkheads.

Simple changes like adding a 1mm shim to the camber link on the inside can work magic.

are you absolutely sure the ride height is level front to back?

Are you staying in the groove the whole time?

Have someone watch the car on the track, and have a expert drive it.

It's impossible for any of us to troubleshoot , but my best guess is your suspension needs to be tweaked.


Are you losing traction on acceleration/deceleration? entry part of turn or exit? Take notes on where you have problems. There's a Hudy Off Road manual that you can read and download and use to help dial in your car.
