Spool users! I used the spool pads from a pulley for my old JRXS. Be VERY carefull if you try to pry them out of the pulley. I cracked one but it shouldn't cause any problems since it will be nearly locked up. Once the first pad was removed the other simply pressed out. I put these pads in the kit supplied 41 tooth pulley. Good luck and continue the info guys!

Does this type of spool ever come loose.......or has anybody had a problem with the spool loosening during a race? and how do you prevent it?

I'm going to weigh my car tomorrow and see how much weight it requires with the carbon LiPo. I think it's only about 6oz under with the body, but I'll know for sure later. Anyway, I believe, at least with the carbon LiPo, I may have found a solution. If the measurements on these tungsten plates are close to what they've advertised, they should fit 2 wide/3 long perfectly on the underside of the carbon battery, and not obstruct its ability to sit flat in the LiPo tray. I can sticky that to the bottom of the tray to gain 3oz down low. I believe I can add the same amount of weight to the top of the battery, or possibly even inside its case down at the bottom. I haven't checked if there's any room on the inside yet. At any rate, that opens up the possibility of adding 9oz within the battery area, which I believe will be way more than needed. Unfortunately, the tungsten weights aren't cheap.

If this works, it may end up that the carbon LiPo is a better choice for this car since it gives you some useful places to add weight. I mentioned in the carbon thread that a way to easily add weights to their batteries (as needed) without changing the form factor would be awesome, and they said they're already looking into it. In the meantime, this may work out okay. I'll take pictures and update this thread with my progress.

It is VERY obvious that they had an Orion 4800 in their hand when they designed this.. It looks like to keep the upper deck as low as possible, the tray that the Lipo sits on is quite thin (say 1-1.5mm maybe). This means with a steel plate, you'll proabably only get a couple ounces of weight under the LiPo. Hmmm. Anybody else come up with a ballast technique to get their LiPO car up to weight?

Maybe I need to make that plate out of Gold or Tungsten?

I personally have had a problem when if you tighten up the screw up to much into the T nut you can brake the diff half.

I never had any loosening issues with it last year. Its designed to actually "give" a little during a hard impact.

Malc--If you would quit using those Big car tools on your little car then things would be OK!! LOL

did you find PADS Shawn? when running the PADS it has not come loose on me. I have run it two full days without it backing off. It wouldn't hurt to monitor every so often as it is now so easy to get to.

middle hole on tower
camber link :jr front link , in and up on tower
high roll center
0 degree pivot
one way set to High position
arm spacing middle

Rear :

12.5 spring, 30 oil, 56 piston,
middle hole on tower,
camber link : middle in on tower, I think outside on hub + short ball stud
High roll center

So what did you do to fix that problem, because the diff hub on the type R is plastic....

Hi guys

i have just had a spool play up, it was down to the nut and screw stripping.

This is the first time i have had such a thing go wrong the whole time i've had the car.

The hardest part of the repair was to get the old screw and nut out with out breaking the diff outputs..

Still looking forward to getting m hands on the new car

Tim
