Hi,
I want to build up a McLaren kit and for the moment just run it with the stock motor. I understand space is limited under the shell and was wondering what size ESC would fit. There are no dimensions in the manual like there are for the servo.

Any suggestions for a bargain basement small ESC?

I own 2 of them for VTA and USGT, and for the price and footprint, you can't beat them. I'll be putting another one in my F104, too.

I am assuming 21.5 is the motor turns in your post above. If so, is this the ESC you mean?

Cirtix Stock Club Race ESC
http://www.speedpassion.net/en/produ...?p=12280&c=ESC
Would this work with the stock can and is it too big to fit in the car?

'cause if not then perhaps I should just buy one of these combos
http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...tor-Combo-135T

I guess I was thinking more along the lines of something like this
http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...se-Brushed-ESC

Sorry for all the questions but just want to get it right. Thanks.

The 1st time out was about a week ago (@nor.cal) and it was having issues with oversteer, built to kit instructions. It would go from slight understeer to snap oversteer, right past the apex of majority of the turns. Since then - I have taken some of the tips from this thread to adjust the car. I have installed a red spring for the damper with lighter damper oil, lower rear ride height, and applied tire compound on the insides of the front foams. The rears are now planted with some understeer. The car could also use a bit more speed @ back the back straight. Overall - (to me) it's easier to drive than my F103 and steers / reacts better than my F201. IMO it flows a bit better than both 103, 201. Ran the car yesterday after the on-road races were done. It's a fun car to drive.

I use the Speed Passion cirtix club race with a GM 13.5T motor. It fits very well and keeps cool. I've run a 93 spur with an 27 pinion.

The best part is no damper plates—instead using a side shock or swizzle stick like the early Trinity Revolvers 1/12th scale cars and many link cars today.

I'm hoping for those parts to be available as a kit to upgrade a standard F104 to damper tube setup.

Default BLACK CAN MOTORS

Hey guy,

Here is Canada at the TCS races we have stopped using black can motors in the F1 series. Too many guys have been blowing them up even with the proper gearing ratio in a 5 min. race. Some of them even blew 3 brand new ones in a single race. I still have ones from the TCS finals 3,4 even 5 years ago and not a single problem.

Any of you guys experience any or the same problem?

Thanks

Paul

On the spacer: jong jing blabla jin moto blabla jadajada "bearing"..? Could it be some sort of better wheel support? Who understands Japanese?
..blabla "counterweight"..

They seem to move as much weight possible to the left side (motor spacer, wheel hub, axle spacer).

Default Camber Caster plate

I tried Mantis Works camber caster plate last weekend and it is extremely effective. It stabilizes the car, no twitchiness and smooth turn in and corner exits. I run a 10.5 brushless with 5200 batterys and the part is a cure for so many of the hard to tune out negative characteristics of the 104.

It is a revolution IMO.

Looks interesting.. Counter balancing weight sort of..
Hope it sells in part rather than getting the whole kit...

Any idea when is the release date?
