Ok guys found a point if inspection you may want to pay attention to. I destroyed the pin on the right side cv axle tonight. I was running third in a very competitive main and ended up fifth after losing the pin with two minutes to go. Had to limp it in on three wheel drive.

By no means am I saying this is a weak point on the car. I have a lot of time on my chassis and just happened to blow one out. It happens. You may want to take a close look at the cv pins when you tear down for cleaning.

Thanks, I had it right the first time.

Another dumb question on the alum shock set, does the large o-ring really go under the preload adjuster?

Not under but in it.
There is a grove in the "preload ring" as you call it.
At least if we are talking about the ring that in on the shock body.

Yes, that is what I'm talking about, the kit shocks say spacer on my Suzuki it is used to adjust the shock preload on the rear.

So it goes in the ring groove like a rubber grip between the knurling?

Check link http://www.3racing.hk/manuals/SAK-48%20Manual.jpg
The O-ring needs to go in the adjust ring.

Call me blind, but I don't see it in the assembled view in that image.

Nor do I see it on the pictures on the first page on this thread:

http://www.petitrc.com/_forumphp/showthread.php?t=49861

I guess it is just something optional if it goes between the knurling.

Look at the pic.
See the ring on the right?
There is the big O-ring in it.

That clears it up, it in on the inside of the ring.

Scroll down and you will find it.

They may help.

I need a new set of fingers though, I forgot how much a PIA it is threading ball cups were.

I still need to notch the upper deck to fit the mount and figure out what power plant I want. I'm thinking either a 25.5 setup or a 17.5. I guess I could order another and do both.

So Further to our discussion about heat. I pulled the motor out and cleaned it and re shimmed it properly,

Removed the Timing ring and re geared the car 4.84

1st Qual 5min Came in at 100 Degrees F TQ time as well

2nd Qual Handed it over to a Noob who was there to watch and I watched the car for how it was pitching around the track.

That time came in at 90 F

10 min A Main - After looking at the time sheets My Car was slower than the fastest guys but having TQ meant I ran exceptionally clean in the first run

I ended up Winning that race and the Motor only got to 120F

So not that the motor is working good again I will start upping the Gearing to see where the limit is

Very nice. Glad to see things cooling down finally.

FYI my motor was running at 160 no timing and a 85 degree ambient air temp when I was running a 4.0 FDR. If you are going to get to the 4.0 invest in a cooling fan. I use the dual cooling fan (in pink ) from 3racing. I can run a 3.7 on full timing and only get to 120.

Here's a pic of the fan. It cools great and fits very well. Its not that expensive either. Cheap insurance to protect the motor.
