Try what Kody tells you, if it not work play with the neutral setting on your transmitter i mean a bit higher or lower than the factory neutral point.
I have this issue with the ju-stock ESC and the cirtix, after setting the neutral point and re-init the ESC to the transmitter I was able to switch on the ESC, no wheels turning and than swich on the transmitter and everything was in rest position, only the fan was turning.
Hope this help you out, great luck.
Thanks

If you are using a KO Propo radio, there is a recalibration procedure you can do without sending the unit it.

We had a local racer that set his car down and the wheels were spinning, adjusted the radio and found a recalibrate procedure...fixed since then and it doesnt hurt to do it every now and then.

PM me if it is a KO.

Paul, few questions for you.

When you get a new kit, would you usually start with the kits' stock setup or in the case of a "revision" kit, would you start with your base on the older car?

If you go to a race and you're on a different tire than you're used to (say going from a Jaco to a Sorex or vice versa) where do you usually start going with your setup first? Do you work with camber and more minor stuff, or do you head straight for roll centers and droop values?

Lastly, I'm looking to get more steering out of my Mod TC, but only on entry into tight, lower speed corners. It seems like everyone else can really just get their car to dive down into the corner and rotate very well on the nose, and mine struggles. I seem to have to use the throttle to pull the car round, which is hard on my tires, and makes the car feel like it's teetering on the edge of being sort of quick and being totally out of control. Is it possibly how I'm driving the car? I'll link my setup, have a look when you get a chance and tell me what you think.

http://forum.teamxray.com/xform/inde...D=560&setup=t4
(I'll be running the new car in Mod now, so if the issues I'm having were sort of platform based, even just kind of a cheat sheet for more entry steering while still keeping the back end sort of stable would be awesome.)

Thanks a ton Paul, hopefully I'll see all the Xray guys again at a big US race this year.

Danny

Hi Danny. The biggest entry corner adjustment that you can make is your body, the LTCR has a ton more entry corner steering than the speed6. I cant seem to open the set up link but i will look and come back to this question.
When i get a new car i normally just put a similar set up to what i was running on the previous model, if i am lost i will then put on the kit set up and start over.
When i go to a race i always just feel how the car is working no matter what the tire, i dont do enough testing with different tires to have a special set up for each one. I think no matter what the tire we are on i am always looking for and will tune for the same feel.

OK, I was able to look at the set up now, I see that you already have the LTC body. I would try a mid rear roll center (this will help corner entry without making the car too hard to drive in the middle of the corner. also you could go back to the 1.2 rear bar, that would likely help corner entry also. 2.5deg from 2deg front camber would give more all around steering if that is what you need, also thinner rear shock oil will make the car turn more on entry also.

good luck!

Paul, please allow me to chime in. Russ is great, I also use him for paint work. I spoke with him a just a few weeks ago. He is open to new customers. If you are looking for shells to be painted, PM Paul or myself and we can get you in contact with him.



Here is another example of Russ's work, one of my past USGT shells.
