welcome to the world of the MR4TC
you might want to check out This Site there's a lot of useful stuff there.
As for what motor... a stocker will give you plenty of runtime and some of them can be pretty quick as well depending on which one you get.
I have an Orion Core Stock, which is quick enough for me, the Grean Machine, i believe, is quicker again.

thanks Mort. yeah i've been to that site...really cool and informative..... he did cover 12T motors as well as stockers.....stockers are 27T? what kinda gearing should i use with the stockers? i got a 25T pinion at the moment, is that too big??? actually i need a powerful enuf motor coz i'll be lugging this bodyshell around, not as light as TC shells but i do want to be different. haha

Nice shell.
What is it, old Ford van or something?
Yes, stockers are 27t motors.
Not sure about gearing, it depends what motor you are going to use.
It might be worth you getting a couple of other pinions though, say a 23, 21 and 19. Smaller the pinion faster acceleration, bigger the pinion the higher top speed.
Hope this helps

I would say a 19 wind,I would gear it 82/23 or 22,they are alot faster than a stock motor,you get almost as much runtime and they cost $39,thats for a spec. 19 turn.Thats what my choice on speed and runtime would be.Cool body.

thanks for the advice dude.....i was contemplating a 15 or 16 turn but wasn't sure about the run time.....
i guess i'll try a 19 and see how it goes....cheers man. so in your opinion this 19T is a "inbetweeny" type of motor ei?!!!

Cut off the servo mounting 'ears', use Goop or good strong servo tape to stick the servo onto the chassis. You will also need to mount the servo saver on the other steering post and modify the servo saver assemby. Hard to explain here without pictures, try asking BK Lim (Chi Long Hobbies) or Jerry.. if all else fails, ask Chris Cher for help

Lonestar :
ME NOT Kum Yew lah

You are using a MR4-SP chassis correct?
Like I said, the steps are as follows :

1) Cut the mounting ears off the servo
2) Use servo saver part (C) instead of (D).
3) Mount the servo saver on the OTHER steering from the kit instructions.
4) Attach the servo with Goop or servo tape.

Attached is a pic of my car WHEN the mods were in place.



DISCLAIMER : I have since converted back to the original servo layout. Reason being I did not detect much if any improvement in forward weight distribution with the mod in place. Moreover, the Goop or servo tape never seem to hold the servo as well as I wanted them to, hence its back to the original mount for me.

?? Which MR4 are you driving??

There are only two MR4 chassis which requires CA sealing of the battery slots, the MR4 SSG SP chassis and the MR4 SD SSH SP.

Only graphite plate chassis requires CA sealing of their edges to prevent
1) the graphite layers from delaminating in a hard crash
2) the batteries from being shorted out due to contact with the graphite. (Hence CA on the battery slots.)

If you are using a tub chassis MR4, there is no need to CA the battery slots.

Cheers

Drive Belts

Guys,
just a quick question.
I raced outside yesterday for the first time.
Most enjoyable as well.
Anyway, I just stripped down the rear
bulkhead to clean it up inside and I noticed
my rear belt had become furry along the outer
edges and also along the teeth of it.
Is it time to replace it? Or is that normal wear?

Thanks
Mort
