Thanks!!
all my reedy motors the tabs have some play

I'm running 1.5 fronts 32.5 white springs, 1.6 rears 30 white springs and I run on a similar track to what you explained and the 1.5 really helped with steering feel. I like them and the 3 hole 1.4's

Anybody have a great high traction black groove indoor clay set up? I had cavs topgun setup and my car pushes horribly on throttle and some what off throttle. I put gullwings back on and its better but still not fast.

Cool. Sounds like it makes sense. Since it has come up here I'm curious and am going to check mine out and see how loose they are, just never noticed it before. I have been very happy with my Reedy motors, they are very smooth and have been reliable.

http://www.redrc.net/2014/12/imbue-r...uminium-axles/



"Imbue have released their new RC10B5 adjustable aluminium axles, made from lightweight, high-strength aluminium and anodized blue for a truly factory look. Shedding more than 6 grams of rotating mass over the stock units, these axles were designed to allow quick and easy track width adjustments, without requiring the racer to carry multiple sets of axles. By simply rearranging the included spacers, racers can adjust each side in 1mm increments, 0mm (stock), +1mm and +2mm. Adjustments can even be made with the wheels still on the car. Fits both B5 and B5M models."

Why the heck would you want brass pistons? Money pit, galore there.

Betting I could snap both sides off in less than 3 turns. No thanks.

Thanks for peoples' suggestions regarding my gear diff and sweeper spin-out issues I posted a few pages back. I switched to the ball diff and the problem went away.

On a few of the setup sheets, I see that the front axle height is not in the "middle" position. How do you move it up or down since there are no spacers between the steering block and the front caster block?

I have been playing with 1.5 front pistons and 1.6 rear piston for a while on a medium bite indoor track. I found it really makes the steering less twitchy without taking to much steering away. I am currently running 30/27.5 but could see going 32.5/30 for high bite tracks.

Asc91403 caster block offset bushings.
Some aftermarket companies have options as well.
