where you running carpet this weekend?

ps - don't forget to shim your camber links with your r/c, or you're effectively adjusting camber gain as well, which is a pretty big thing on foams. bump steer washers too if you're working on the front end.

Rob I was thinking about trying high roll centers next time I run on carpet too, Im sure it will take a little bit of changing the front end but it might be better. Definatley report back on your findings.

I'm not running the same setup as anyone on carpet or on asphalt so I figured it might work for me.

Thanks Chris.. Very good points and I probably would have not done this. YOU THE MAN!

I am going to Cincy tomorrow. They're not racing, but Junior, Favian, and I are going to run.

Larry,

I will definitely let you know how it works out and what I can come up with.

For those still contemplating or still looking for a esc mounting solution, I came up with one for my "R". I took the side plate off of my Pro3, drillied one hole, and used 2 of the forward holes on the left side. I had the hpi cf chassis set on the pro3, I don't think it is available separately, check Tower, Penquin rc has side plates in g 10 fiberglass $7.99 or cf for $14.99. Just a thought.

How about a photo of your solution when you get a chance.

Much thanks.

I want to convert my 64pitch to 48pitch spur. How many teeth should the 48pitch spur be???? Is it 96t?

[QUOTE=Marcos.J]you dont need that at all

Why not? The esc was already mounted to it, I used existing holes in the chassis, I drilled 1 hole in the plate to line up with the chassis, and the esc has cf extending all the way around it. It's not just hanging off the edge of the chassis.

I think a lot of people are really worried about side impacts with this type of mounting style. I know I am. It's a shame that cars like this are getting more and more designed around the 1% of drivers in the world who never crash or don't have to pay for replacement parts and electronics.

A GTB is half the price of the car. I can't afford to take something so fragile and hang it out there in the open like that. Personally, I really like the added side plate. Very creative!

Maybe Bud Bartos or some other innovative company will come out with something out of Kydex that will help protect the expensive electronics a bit...

BTW, I have found baseline rubber tire setups for asphalt, and foam tire setups for carpet, but does anyone have a suggestion for a foam tire asphalt starting point?
