Default Wheel chatter

Hi just wanted to see that it is normal to have wheel chatter even at about 70% DR.

Cheers

A bit of wheel chatter is normal for running a spool, nature of the beast. The inside wheel chatters because it is locked and puts strain on the drive coupling in the CVD. I use Tamiya Anti-wear grease and it helps a bunch. There are other alternatives, but I'm sure the AE Area 51 guys are up to something judging by the new, larger openings in the caster blocks on the TC6.1 suspension.

Just got my 6.1 kit. The box is tiny! And no cool box art . Oh well, it's what inside that counts, right?

I thought the box art was pretty cool myself. It said everything it needed to

Default Gear diffs - fluid

I am running on a medium traction tight carpet track. I want to try the gear diff so would 1,000 wt be a good starting point? I will run it with the spool but also considering testing with a front diff as well so is 500,000 wt a good start for the front?

Thank you

17.5 blinky mode, yep... different motors will be a tooth or 2 up or down from 4.0, but make sure you temp the motor at 3 mins.... just to be safe....

If you are running open ESC 17.5 class, then depending on the track size, ESC setting and motor, but 6.5 FDR is a good starting point....

On our medium bite carpet track, I'm running 30wt AE shock oil rear, and 500k in the front. The car is dialed

My buddy is running a spool with 40wt in his with good results, also, but he is more point-n-shoot with his driving style.

Very useful thank you! Tried (64 pitch) 88 spur and 43 pinion today. Doesn't fit. Bought it prior to checking the list in the manual. Oh well.

We are driving on a high traction carpet. Tried spool vs. putty vs. front diff (600k, 500k, 300k). We all experienced the same thing leek of power out of corners and 0.4-0.5s slower times vs. spool. A lap is approx. 16s. Front diff is more easy to drive/consistent but the spool is faster and a little bit twitchy. Putty is somewhere in between.

This is our experience.

Regards
