Well it appears part of the problems I was having is because of the sensor wires from LRP are so freakin stiff and caused tweak the way I had the car set up. I moved the wire and it helped. Anyone know of any softer sensor wire setups? I saw the Xpress one this weekend with the braided wire cover and that looked a lot better.

Also I forgot to ask when I talked to Jason on the phone...what are the other mounting holes for for the damper tubes? Under what circumstances would I mount the tubes there?

It doesnt really make a big difference in handling. Its more of a convenience for running the wires in that area. It gives you a little adjustment.

Jason,
What type of gear for the speedpassion 17.5 at the iic, I beleive that the track is 100x60.

I've still yet to run the 12r5 as I realy enjoy driving my db12r.
Thanks,
E

Im not sure being that i have never run a 17.5. I would imagine that it is going to be a difficult motor to overgear.

I thin yo mean a 78 spur and a 45 pinion. which is kind of where I thought. I mainly wanted to know if it might require a different gearing than the Hacker motor that I currently run.
Thanks,

I was running my SP 17.5 at a roll out of around 89-91mm on a 46x100 high bite indoor asphalt track and the motor temp was only coming off at 138 degrees.

Hey Eric I've been running a 76/43 at speedsports with my Novak 17.5, been comming off at around 100F. That track is smaller than CH but I was thinking of trying a tooth or more next time. You could also ask Kyle what he's gearing his hacker at.

Got my 1st ever TQ in 12th Scale at our race on Sunday!

Finished 3rd in the Main though. Also had the fastest lap in the Main. But anytime I can finish Top 3 is an accomplishment as far as I am concerned

The new layout seems to have been an improvement. And I am finally using the body that came with it when I bought it. I kind of feel bad beating this thing up

Jason,

Sorry, I know you have been asked this question a million times.

What are thoughts on balancing these cars out? Do you take into consideration the unsprung weight on the pod or do you just balance the chassis plate by itself? Also do you ever add weight to get the desired results or do you get it as close as possible with the electronics alone?

With thses new 2.4 receivers balance seems to be getting harder to achieve...

Hey Buddy,

I balance the car with the pod detached. The pod is a stationary part of the car that never pivots. Unless something pivots and exposes a balance issue, then that area will not benefit from being balanced. There will only be lateral weight shift parallel to the ground. The only reason that i made the pod to be centered with a brushed motor is because of the gyro effect created by the large, heavy armature. The small brushless rotors do not have much of this. This is why i decided to make sure the brushed armature was centered so that there is no torque steer. The slight bit that a brushless rotor is off center and minimal gyro effect have little to no effect on torques steer.

Balancing our cars is getting very difficult. The super light receivers and heavy speed controls for brushless does make this difficult task. I try to achieve balance without adding weight. Most often it happens.

What will a harder and softer spring do to handling?
Also what will heavier and lighter shock oil do?

Sorry i know you have probably been asked this a million times.
