Actually, Dumper usually says "Quit hittin' s#!t".

And it works. Simple!

After what I saw at the tzgp last year, mixing Joey and apple pie might be the root of the problem.

Hahahahahaha

Questions?? Receiver battery pack (?)

In 1s WGT racing, does a smaller 6.6v 200mah receiver pack provide adequate juice over the total race or do i need something such as a 800mah 7.4 2s pack? I'm thinking about this from a power and weight perspective....

thanks
Mike

That will work fine. The team uses 180mah packs. We can get several runs out of one charge.

my 235mm car seems to have developed a wobble in the rear axle somewhere. how easy is it to bend one of these carbon axles? if it isn't the axle then it may be the hub extenders although i'm not sure they would readily bend either. that said, after two blowovers on the front straight at the local track and the ensuing hard landings i can see that something probably has to give..

From what I have seen, it is usually the regular hubs, followed by extender hubs, followed by the axle.

The axle usually just snaps when exposed to a big hit.

i concur. running the 235 adapters add a lot of weight to the hubs. it seems to make the hubs a bit more susceptible to bending. we ran a lot of 235 when we had the outdoor track running. 2s 10.5, awful fast. when the axle takes damage, it usually sheers off where the locating pin for the diff goes through.

I'm sure my axle is bent as it displays a visible wobble with the hubs removed. Wouldn't have thought so but there you have it. It appears there are people out there making wide pods for use with longer axles and the standard hubs which would be the way to go I think
