Default Looking for the cheapest place to....

buy a new molded carbon kit and Ti screw kit?

Also anyone have a great rubber tire setup for cement street?

Anyone have the Speed Tech SSG CF shock towers? If so, what did you think of them? Do they flex?

You can get the molded carbon kit from Horizon, the Ti screw kit from Titanium Racing (Schumacher).

Look a couple of pages back and you can find the setup I posted.

As to the shock towers. they are great, you can get the combo kit and use the black ones for asphalt and cement, and then use the SSG ones for carpet, but they all work good for both.

If you can't get the screw kit you can try Lunsford. But if you aren't set on titanium, I would go with a kit of stainless steel screws from RC Screwz, that is what I use and they are great.

Default setting gear mesh 64 pitch 128spur

I am having a real problem lately setting the gear mesh accurately since I switched to 128tooth spur 64 pitch pinions It seems like I am geting the squealing sound even when I think I am not setting it too tight. I am also starting to put lots of wear on the spur. I have been using a pinion that has a slighly beveled edge on it.
It seems like the pinion and spur might be meeting at a slight angle. (The wear is much greater on one edge than another) Since there is no obvious way to adjust that angle
(the plane the rotate in) In other words the shaft of the motor is not perfectly parralel to the shaft of the spur.

Has anyone else come across this problem.
-----------------------------
I tried the paper trick to set the mesh and it still squeels.
With the 48 pitch gears you could kind of eyeball it. You could rock the one gear back and forth and see if there was just a tin bit of play.

--------------------------
also I am using a spool for the first time. In the first heat today the pinion gear actually came off the shaft even though I am certain I had tightened it(it has two set screws and both were tight) is this just evidence for the extra strain the spool puts on the drive train?

Thanks in advance.

imjonah,

The white plastic idler pulley wheel for the belt has a slightly larger flange on one side than the other. Which direction is the larger flange facing? Towards the spur gear or away?

I still use the "rock the spur gear" method with 64 pitch.

Gotta think that you didn't have either of the two set screws fully tightened to the flat surface on the motor's shaft.

The idler is black and the larger flange is next to the tensioner arm it self. The set screws are on opposite sides of the pinion so only one is on the flat part of shaft, I am not sure I even should be using the second set screw, possibly. It might be there to use just in case you strip the first set screw.

It is a bit discouraging to find so many pieces of technical knowledge required to race a touring car competitvly.
I bet I could together a 10 pages of notes from this forum concearning things not include in the instruction manuals.(and that is not including small details from the manual which are important but not emphasized or detailed in the manual as possible mistakes or causes of trouble)

im,

I have seen so many idler wheels on backwards that I took a shot at that. Good you have the black belt setup.

My first graphite chassis had the holes for the spur slightly out of alignment. Spur gear sat at an angle to the belt.

What!?! It's not fun reading 437 pages of this thread? You are lucky that Randy Caster doesn't post so much these days...Then it would be a thousand pages...

The information contained in this thread is an incredible resource, it is almost an "Encyclopedia of the XXX-S" .
On occasion I will just go back and read 3 -4 months of posts, I always almost learn something new.
I think if it had not been for this thread and the people who answer questions on it, I would have given up in frustration last year. I just do not know where else you could get more accurate information; certainly not from Losi Web site certainly not from typical LHS.
Thanks for quick answers and all the in depth knowledgeable help,

Please continue to drop by this thread after all your JRXSs arrive .

Well put imjonah.

I will be keeping one of my XXX-S cars for future use; so, I expect to be on both threads.
