The tape is it for now. I hanent seen anyone try and fab a mount yet for it.

On the brushless side of things all the guys here are going back to the old 19turn brushed motors. Seems to be faster than the 13.5 brushless.

For anyone who might have been following my posts from a page or two ago, my R5 was absolutely dialed on Sat. night.

Instead of it getting looser and looser as the rounds went on, as it had done in my first couple of racedays with the car, it actually started out a tick loose in the first qual and tightened up and came in perfectly as the rounds went by and the groove got established. Infact, I set the track record with 80 laps in 8:03 in the A-main (smallish track and we're running 17.5/27T) I think my good runs on Sat. were a combination of having a good setup and just figuring out what the car likes and doesn't like asfar as driving technique goes.

I was geared 76/46 with a Trinity Duo 17.5 on 44.5mm Jaco Prism gray rears & lilac fronts. I'll have video of the heats and A-main as well as my TC heats and main on my Youtube page in the coming days. I'll post again with the link as soon as they're uploaded.

As for the 9650 servo, I kept the side mounts on my 9650 and direct-mounted it to the chassis. The servo horn is perfectly centered and it works great.

Re: Brushless pod. I bought the top and bottom plates a while ago, but no one seems to ever have the hub and thrust cone in stock. I guess I'll have to B/O it. In the meantime, I've had good success running my Duo 17.5 with the standard pod. Like another poster said, the car tracks straight and drives fine. I still want to try the B/L pod, though, just to see if I can notice any difference.

The motor plate is repositioned on the graphite pieces to change the weight balance of the pod. The hub and cone are needed to keep the rear width legal.
here ya go..

the front end of a pan car isn't engineered with a damper, so you glob on some high viscosity silicone lube that dampens the movement..

cheers

yes, all that you need the hub to do is be shorter by 3mm.

A temporary alternative to the brushless hub is to use an IRS hub w/jaco tires. This combo is 86mm from the center line w/out any spacers. Your car will be at the max 172mm limit and you won't be able to fine tune the rear track. I ran this combo for a short period until my brushless hub came in....just a thought

It works, just make sure axle is centered.

I just ordered my hub and thrustcone from Stormer. As of a minute or so ago, there are 3 hubs left and 5 cones left. Get 'em while they're hot!
