I understand. Just out of curiosity, I want to be sure of myself on this one. So if I had a front one way up front and a spool in the rear, it would be the same as having both a spool up front and back with a center one way?

Also, you don't happen to know anything about my first problems with the dogbones not letting my steering knuckles turn all the way to the stopper? They are about to fall out when I push them through friction to the stopper.

Just thought I'd share some pics of my RCGT Showdown TB03.

(I've got pics ready to send Timmie, bear with me







Here's the one going to the Mazda Cup this weekend.



And one that Timmie painted for me for the Showdown. It worked good but my current set up wouldn't allow this body to work as I thought it would.

This picture doesn't do it justice. Its and awesome paint scheme with beautiful paint. Thanks Timmie!!

NICE! Timmie, i need a body painted please .

Jimmy, just saw the video of the finals. I can't believe (maybe I can), how much faster your car was compared to the rest. What Suspension Mounts are you using front and rear if you don't mind me asking. Thanks.

Jon,

Are you sitting down?

I have been running the stock plastic that came with the kit, set up right out of the kit, even the wheelbase spacers, they are the same as setup in the instructions.

(If I can figure out my scanner I will post a set up sheet on TRF.)

My list of Hop Ups includes:

46mm aluminum CV axles

Front "slipperential" (built by Scale Auto Engineering div. of Track Star)

Ceramic diff balls rear

Aluminum turn buckles

Aluminum suspension balls

Titanium screw kit

Carbon steering kit

Carbon drive shaft

Aluminum battery strap bolts

(all above for weight savings)

Carbon plastic chassis.

TRF shocks

TA05 sway bar kit

Aluminum diff halves front and rear

(All these for performance enhancement)

I use a KO 2345 servo, KO BMC ESC, Fantom Duo1 motor, Fantom 5000mah 40C batteries, KO Helios 2.4 transmitter.

As you know I'm partners in a business called Track Star. We build R/C race cars for clients. If anyone would like a car built or their current one set up just contact us at trackstarrc@gmail.com.

We work with all brands.


Jimmy Wright

Can you guys recommend me a good Brushless System? I have a castle creations 4600kv sidewinder systea and novak havok sport 8.5 system. The magnets on my sidewinder are weakened. And the Novak havok sport is bulky, glitchy(can be stopped), and has wires everywhere.

I like the simplicity of the sidewinder. ESC/Motor that's it. Wires can be disconnected from the esc to motor unlike the novak havoc sport.

I like the novak havoc sports smoothness. I got them for separate cars because they are not too much money.

What's a good brushless system?

For drifting, I think it'd be pretty hard to beat a Castle Creations setup. Great price/performance.

What speedo, motor and battery are you running? Are you running slicks or xpatterns (RCGT)?

I'm done fighting with my scanner not working with Vista so here is my attempt to write it out.

Most of you already know I run the stock blocks, shims and spacers per kit instructions.

TRF shocks with the thin spring collar. 3 hole pistons with 550 Kyosho all 4.

Built to 61.5mm in length. full rebound for most tracks (except bumpy ones)

Blue springs front, yellow or red for rear depending on bumps and traction. Red mostly.

push rods at 14.5mm and #2 arm position all around
Shock position #2 on rear tower

Front: #4 camber position w/3mm shim.
Rear: #4 w/2mm shim and #2 on hub.

TA05 sway bars. Usually yellow front, red rear. Recent changes in front diff I took the front bar off.

Droop: I take the tires off and set the chassis on a flat surface. Then I take my calipers and measure from the top of the axle to the surface. All 4 axles I set to .950 inch. (24.1mm)

Ride height: Here I use a gauge under the chassis. Most of the time I run 6-6.5mm on all tracks. At Cam I was looking for more steering without sacrificing stability so I went to 5mm in front with 6mm rear and took .25mm of droop out in front. (24.4mm)

Anything else let me know....... :
