So went back to mm on an outdoor track again... Had bad luck and gave up too quick last time!!! Had great results today... Moved rear hubs all the way forward and used b5r arms front and back. This thing stuck all the way around the track like glue... Problem im having is the two middle doubles i cant get enough speed and have to hit it just right to clear them. Running 72-33 but not enough speed. Running that same gearing in my rear motor i could clear the doubles with ease!! Any suggestions?? A friend suggested going down on the spur to 69 and pinion to 34ish. If i went down on spur wouldnt i lose more top end yet?? I know the mm is alot heavier but it seems like a dog compared the the rm!!! Im torn between the two!! Any suggested on the 69/72 spurs?? Thanks guys and hope i can figure this out... By the way running reedy 17.5 blinky mode gen2 esc... Large outdoor 1/8 scale size track with multiple doubles and a triple.

cool thanks. I have to snag some 8mm ones. gonna have to look and see if I can steal some off my RM car until I get them in. That poor car just keeps getting molested for parts haha. I have everything I need to actually put it back together too... just not the time.

Guess that's next week's project lol.

On our large outdoor track I went to 69/38 20timing. Give it a try, you will have a lot more topspeed.

If you have the gold colored offset caster block bushings you could try raising the front spindle height that should give you some more steering without changing arms and tower. Also where are your rear hubs located because that can effect the steering as well.

Do I have to have the gold spacer can't I use the plastic to raise it? I have them in the middle. Also I'm still running the plastics rear hubs, I'm thinking of getting the aluminum ones but not sure if the would improve anything.

I seem to have a lot of play in my rear and front hubs. It's been this way since I first built it.

Anyone have any advice on tightening it up?

Your always going to have some "play" in a offroad car, if it was tight, it would all bind up once dirt gets into everything.

You could use shims to tighten some of your car up a little more ( like the rear shafts moving in and out), just be careful not to make things too tight or you will most certainly have binding issues.

Sweet, thank you.

I sort of thought it was normal given it built that way. Just seemed like a bit too much play.

There definitley is a point of "too much" play, it all depends on how much use is on the car. At that point I would look at replacing arms, pins, pin holers as needed.
