nexus there is a video clip of a very free tc3, spinning for about 20-30 secs at least, i didnt count but it was insanely long. Most likely ceramic bearings, i can get about 10-12 secs on mine, and that is with metal sealed bearings with shields removed and blasted thoroughly with brake cleaner with no relubrication.

Default Motor Gearing for a Orion Core Stock

Hi all,

What would you reccomend for a Core Stock motor with a 72 Spur gear? The track has one 100ft straight otherwise the course will have mainly med speed cornering.

Thanks

I have had good experiences with a 22/72 or 24/72 gearing with stock motors.

Hey BubblesTC3

Thanks for the ratio, I think i will start with between a 24 and 26 and see what happens.

Can you reccomend an easy fix for the hinge pins on all four block carriers? The set screw came loose and the hinge pin moved out towards the front of the car.

I've seen it - it was about 30-40 pages back or so.

A guy colored dish wheels in quarters (black and white) so you could see the spin. He had the car securely mounted on a block so wheels could spin freely.

He got a REAL good spin on it (both rear wheels, obviously) and let it spin - it went a LONG time. . .

I wonder if maybe you didn't fully clear out the plastic gunk that sits inside the hub carriers after they've been molded, that would get in the way of the set screw & make it feel like you tightened them when in truth you haven't. If that's the case, just take an Exacto blade & scrape out that stiff & then try to tighten the set screws again.....

Try shoe goo that will hold them in place on both sides
