it will get easier once you get a hang of how to put it on~~

try to tighten the screw that holds the spur gear in place (the battery side one) after you get the tensioner on, that should make it easier~

Hey Shrekair,
If PRP builds other car company stuff, you should have them make woven graphite shock towers for the xxx-s. Because that would be phat.

Hey Kraig,
Can you give me any info on the Team Barber screw kits for the XXX-S? (mainly color, hex head,slotted or phillips)

Evil_S10, They are stainless steel so they shine. They are your regular hex head. Let me know if you have any more questions.

For those of you that look in the sell area do you remember the aluminum pieces that go on the underside of the car to protect the belt? If so those were made by a guy name Jason. Well, since he changed jobs and doesn't have much time anymore he has agreed to let me sell the covers. They will be the same price with priority mail for shipping. I will be putting them up on the website as soon as I get a picture. If you are interested in one just let me know.


Thanks,
Kraig

how strong is the XXXS graphite chassis? I am thinking of getting one but I had problems with the milled Street Weapon chassis since it broke along the milling on a very low impact. I run stick packs so no batteries would drop in the slots ( side x sides and matched packs illegal in our class).

Fire-I picked up the blue 128? 64p spur and the tensioner went on perfectly when I installed it.

I don't think I really care too much for that stock body....ugly.

Yes please I often race in the wet and my current set-up doesn't seem to be too good. It rained for todays race but luckily we were racing at a covered car park

oh that means i need to sit and type this all out....

the cars settings were pretty much stock except -

4 degree front kickup

0 degree camber all round

all shock positions and camber link positions as per kit instructions.

orion core 12x1 with 24/88

hpi threaded shock set with no3 pistions, 60wt all, all standard length, with yellow hpi linear springs on front and blue hpi linear on rear.

take off CS22 tyres with blue moulded matched medium insert.


thats pretty much the basics...i usually run with pit D20 treaded tyres in the rain but the surface today must have suited the slicks.

any questions just ask...

I am currently running the kit XXXS tires and they are hooking up great. the issue I am having is I think they are gonna be finished soon so I need to pick up a pair of tires that will handle like they do. I was thinking of getting the slick version in the same yellow compound (the current set is basically slicks now!) or a set of HPI X patterns. Any ideas? Also, what do you need to do to make sure the inserts stay put? I got some flat spots on my current tires.

if it's possible to run slicks then try sorex or take off, get the right compound for the temp. and they will last a while with very good traction.

For insert get those mold round insert instead of those strips like losi, that way you don't have to worry about the insert get out of shape

Thanks OBY, my set-up is not anywhere close to stock so that may have been why it didn't go so well in the wet. In damp conditions (pit treaded worked best) my car was going really well, I only made 1 mistake in the final and it was handling better than any other car at the track BUT down the straight everyone was cruising past me This is really odd b/c i had an 11x3 Orion chrome and they had mostly 12 turn motors
It was geared according to the manual which seems to be about right for short tracks and was quite hot at the end, something must be wrong so I'm going to get a new motor and leave the 11x3 in my Pro-10. I was thinking a Core 12x1 High speed or as there are no motor restrictions at my club a 11x2, which 12x1 do u have, high speed or high torque and how does it go?

cain - u can have my kit tires for $10 shipped

louisb - i'm really liking the new peak carrera motors. they are very smooth through the power band, and even witht he stock hard brush they arent bad, but i switched to a standard reedy 429 brush and mine became very good.

i'll see what i can do about those shock towers!

shrekair, isn't the peak carrera the same as the orion core? They are both TOP based and have the same magnets
