What will using the center one-way only do for your car?

BTW, has anyone broken an aluminum MIP CVD lately? The pin in one of ours broke through its hole in the anodized section of the CVD.

Red > I sometimes put the positive on the steering on a tight course, but it does make the car more twitchy, especially in the straights. I kinda liked it in the begining, but now i still use it, but not so hight, try not to go higher than 12-15 if you like exp. I also adjust the dual rate. I like to turn the whole wheel without spinning out, but thats me.

hahaha

Hey, I did actually come in 2nd Sat at SoCal. Good start, but a brain fart left me about 8-9 seconds behind the leader in 9h place. I did make a good run and finish 2nd, only 2 seconds behind...

Oh well....

i have a p2k copper head pro motor and an ipc pro sport speedo.
the speedo uses bullet connectors and has a female attached to it.
The only bullet connectors i see are no solder leads.
how will i solder the speedo to the motor for a better connection than the no solder leads.

do you want to solder your motor directly to the esc? clip the female leads off, then solder away.

I PREFER USING DEAN'S CONS. BETWEEN THE MOTOR AND ESC. THIS ALLOWS FOR QUICK REMOVAL.

I don't think you lose any time by soldering the cables directly to the motor. If you have connectors there is always a risk that they get disconnected in a hard crash.

Not only that, Airwide, but you have to purchase new Deans connectors for every motor...or SOLDER from one motor to another...might as well just solder in the first place...

Of course, Johnny Racer is in the green when he goes to a outdoor race with no power.... We direct solderers, on the other hand, are screwed....

True!

I attended my first race for the carpet season last weekend. I had problems with my rear end chattering in corners on the quite bumpy carpet. Do you have any ideas on how to fix this?

I also discovered after the race that one of my front pivot pins was sheared off. Maybe that was the problem.

I thought about going to softer springs, but when I did the sides of the chassis scrubbed on the carpet. Maybe I should have tried softer springs with sway-bars.

Any input?

Thanks,

PRECISELY!!!!!!!

I do a bit of parking lot running where there is no power. To keep the cons together, just give a quick wrap with some elec tape. Or, you could use Tamiya Cons!!! Ok, maybe not.

TP > You can always pit with me, i have a generator

For those who do parking lot racing with no power, it is convienant to use the plugs, BUT there is always someone with power and a hot gun.

Or if you dont have a generator, which i highly recomend if you race outside a lot, get one if you can afford it. Before my generator, i bought a marine battery to do my battery charging. I dont think the soldering iron they made for car batteries was hot enough.

That's oversteer. Can you post your setup and track conditions? It will be much easier to tell you what to change then.
