finally completed my R3. i will post pictures later today.
survived a weekend of racing. socal sat..and rcheat on sunday.
R3 pushed onpower..hopefully i can get those things worked out.
anyone have a good asphalt setup? the drivetrain is pretty free. Steve...this sucker spins pretty good. i think the new motor mount design helps out a lot. it acts as a third shaft holder.
i did bend my new pink dog bone on sunday
. those pvc pipes hurt.
also broke a c hub on the same side. thats only the second time ive broken a barracuda part. and both times it seems to be with tracks that run pvc pipe. i never broke anything at socal either. oh well.
posting pictures later today. and i remember there was discussion about a shim getting placed underneath the motormount.. i placed mine in there per the instruction manual.
here's a scary thought... ceramic bears.. alum. dog bones, Ti axles, and that carbon fiber shaft.. man thats gonna be a very light drive train.
lastly.. i ran the R3 in 19T.. very fast! now if i could find the right gearing for the reedy quad mag and more steering.... i should be okay.
