Cain - yes that can be your belt skipping even without puting on the brakes. If you are running a standard front diff or a locked front diff, this is more likely than if you run a front oneway. When your car gets good and hooked up, and you take a turn. The front and rear wheels want to spin at different speeds. This is most noticeable with a front spool. So since each end of the car wants to spin at different speeds, something has to give. So either the front tires will have to lose traction and push, or tension will be put on the belt. If the belt is loose enough, it'll make a sort of clicking sound in some of the turns. Just try snugging up your belt tension a bit and that sound should go away.

Ghosttown - just for future reference, there's a really easy search function on these forums. Just type something like "chatter" or "wheel chatter" and it'll bring the information right to you instead of having to look all over for it.

well then you would need some extra bits to hold the spur, belt tensioner and motor clamp, as well as some thing to stop the diffs from falling out that would also need to hold the shocktowers up.

Why bother ?? there are plenty of cars that already come with plate chassis. Plate chassis were what was used before designers had the freedom to design molded chassis without losing rigidity, so to me, a molded chassis looks better. more advanced.

Not that there is anything wrong with plate chassis !!! And carbon fibre does look pretty cool, just not as much after you've had about 10 cars that have them.

Default carbon fiber over existing chassis

oh I hate those milling holes on the left side of the chassis. I put velcros on chassis to attach the receiver and ESC, and those hole affect the effectiveness of the velcros.

Planning to get the graphite chassis and cover the "holes" with carbon fiber cloth,
any thoughts ?

Default ultimate cool

I thought the ultimate cool factor is to mill out part of the chassis (like kinwald) and cover the exposed with carbon fiber cloth.

Link to my setup (in MS Word):

SETUP

I don't race touring much. I based this setup off of what Hodge and a few others have been running. There was a fairly fast guy at the track this weekend so I got to judge my setup to someome else's (he was driving a tc3). Where my car always seems to struggle is the tight parts of the track. There is a section in this layout that has 3 tight 180s in a row and it's killing my laptimes. I turned the fastest lap all weekend but I know it could be better if my car flowed through this section better. It seems to me the car is the 180s wants to push mid corner a bit. I have to wait to long to get back on the thottle to make these turns. The car is worse with a stock motor than in mod. It seems in mod I have enough momentum for the rear to kinda "pivot" more in the tight turns. In stock the rear is just to locked.

The rest of the track the car is pretty much dailed. I wouldn't normally be to concerned about 3 turns but this section makes up half the track.

I was wondering if anyone has any experience with tighter tracks that is similar to the one I race on that we could bounce some ideas back and forth. The ozite carpet track is 60'x35'.

Here's some things I've thought about trying next time out:

- 6 deg front spindle carriers.
- Move the front arms back from current location by .050".
- Move the rear arms back to middle location and then in the far back position.
- 2 deg rear anti squat.
- Try 1/2 deg AND 1 deg rear hubs in reverse for less rear toe-in.

Any suggestions or feedback welcome. Thanks in advanced.

Jared,

Allot of us that run on a fairly tight ozite track are running Paul L. setup from the carpet nats. Its pretty close may need to adjust slightly from their.
