what is the best way to mount a lipo? i have been using just the tape on my SMC 4000, but it seems like the tape lets it move around a bit, are you guys making stops for it, or what?

So long as you're having fun bro.... I recently hung up the mod motors for 13.5 This class has more racers and it's been pretty fun. For the KO race I will only be running 10.5 since there isn't a 13.5 class. I'm done with mod for a while. I will become the 13.5 KING of the straight since no one has anything for me in mod

Just got my Diff Covers from RC-Square in Germany.
Really well made and more in the style of as "cap" than a cover.
U just squize on the cap and the cap will keep your diff dust-free.
good quality and well craftet.......

I've been using a few strips of double-stick tape on the chassis, under the battery, then tape it down. It holds well.

Hey all,

ran my 416 for the first time yesterday and it destroyed the front spool. Has anyone had to dremel out the front upper bulkheads to gain more clearance there. Using a 3mm upper arm spacer with a 5mm ball connector. Has completely polaxed the alum spool cups and melted the inner plastic cup.

sorry for blurry pic...having camera issues

Was this a 416 spool? Then should be no problem...

Have you put in the bearing holders up-side down?

yikes yeah scott that looks like the bearing holders were around the wrong way. Was it just the bottom of the ball screw rubbing because it looks like it was more than that?

ball screws were fine it was the actual bulk head rubbing on the alum cups...

ill double check which way I put it together...lucky it came with spare plastic cups.

didnt really dig the way it drove with the spool anyway, but i think it had more to do with the thing chewing itself too death.

you had the bearing carriers in upside down, maing the spool be in the high position. the spool is to be run in the low position.

Arrow should be pointing down. By the look of your pics, you had it in the up position... I've done exactly the same thing before. Have a look under the front upper bulkheads, they'll be worn too... and the outdrives will probably have melted as well.

And you right, it doesn't make the car very nice to drive....

yep plastic out drives were melted bigtime lol ill put it back in when I get some replacement parts.

does anyone know if u can buy the alum cups and outdrives separately or is it easier just to buy the whole unit again...the cups look crap as atm.

could someone possibly post a pic to make sure I get it right lol

hopefully it will be nice and dry and I can give it a run tuesday nite going to run the one way for this week anyway...brushless setup coming for it shortly, thanks to all who gave me tips on gearing.
