Good to see you get an Xray Andrew. Now if you dial that horsepower down a little you will be set hahaha. It was good to meet you and have you come run with us over in Jackson. Next time you need to leave some trophies for the locals in 12th scale, WGT, and VTA. Let us know when you guys have a big race coming up and rocky terry, and I will come out and run with ya. By the way if you need any setup info I would be glad to share the little bit of info I have gained.

I was removing my reciever and severed the wire on my Futaba HRS receiver. What would be the best way of repairing this?

Thanks for having me. I sure learned a lot the last two weekends. I've been typing everything I can remember up and I am on a second page already. I will get ahold of y'all in MS when I know about our next race. I expect it will be in the fall. L8r

Hi Paul,

I am going to be running Mod Rubber my T3 on a large gas track (200x100... controlfreakz.com) and had a few Q's (as havent really run mod much in the past 5 years)

1)What motors are you running now? I was going to go with an LRP x12 but havent been to a national race in a while and dont know what is good and what isnt, or if there have been any issues with any motors.

2)Do you recommend running metal spool cups? Or are the plastic ones ok? I have only run the car with a 17.5 with rubber tires on carpet and havent had any issues, but I assume outdoor with much more power and faster corners might put a lot more stress on the parts.

3)So far I have just run 13.5 on the track and my front tires wore considerably more than my rears probably due to the large amount of long high speed corners, is there anything in particular you would recommend, besides trying to be as smooth and scrub as little as possible, such as set up wise, to even out the tire wear, or is there no way around it?

4)With a fresh pack, is it okay to recharge the same pack all day, or am I losing a lot of voltage and run time by doing so?

Thanks Paul,

Mark Strasnick

Hi Mark

1 i have still been using the nemisis mod's and they work well. any mod on the market will be fast, some just might not blow up as easy and are able to handle 220degs if it somehow gets that hot. i dont think you could go wrong with any of them.

2) the plastic outdrives will work but they do stand a chance of breaking, and (especially in mod) will wear inside and eventually bind. the aluminum ones should last forever as long as you replace the blades every once in a while to make sure that the pin dosent hit the outdrive and mark it up.

3) the front tires wearing more is kinda nature of the beast, but things like thicker rear shock oil and softer front shock oil can help the cause along with maybe softer front spring or a stiffer rear spring if the car will still handle ok. the thing is to try and get the car to steer the same the whole run. if my car has good steering up front but pushes at the end i would first try thicker rear oil and or thinner front to try and close the gap of Tire temp from front to rear bc obviously the front tires are getting too hot and loosing grip as the run goes on. more rear toe could also do the same thing (get the rear tires hotter and maybe provide more steering at the end). But honestly, im prolly not the guy to ask consittering my not so success on asphalt. lets see a little copy and paist from the Jilles thread on this one, LOL.

4) i use the same battery pretty much all the time, i think that they are best for power on the 2nd or 3rd charge of the day, for 12th scale mod i may worry about some possible run time loss but for TC i wouldnt worry atall.

No problem!

Thanks for the advice Paul, I really appreciate it!

, no problem.
yea fans do help, i rarely run one but for 13.5 i think it is very neccessary, it would only help the motor in mod also, but wont drop lap times or anything.

Paul,

Thanks for attending the Xray Challenge race in Portland last year. It was a pleasure to meet you at that event.

Since you don't have an "Ask Paul Lemieux" thread on the Nitro On-Road forum, I thought I'd ask this question here.

I was looking at your setup sheets for the '09 Capitol Classic and the '09 Gas Nationals (congrats on winning both) and have a question about roll center settings on the NT1.

The information indicates that you set the roll center inserts to LOW in both front and rear. However, the rear camber link has a pretty large spacer at the rear block and a very low position on the tower. Both of these settings (according to the setup book) RAISE the roll center.

How fine are the adjustments made by the camber link angle and position? How much would you have to increase the angle of the camber link to equal moving up one notch with the inserts?

Thanks for any info you can offer.

When you say "thicker shock oil in the rear and thinner in the front".
Do you mean thicker than what you normally run in the rear or thicker than the front....... as you always seem to run a thicker oil in the front?
