Default Keven on World Tour

Just so everyone posting questions know Keven is away on a little World Tour. He has gone to Thailand for the TITC race this week and then next week he is traveling to Spain for an ETS race. He will not return to Quebec until March. So he might not get to your questions for a while.

I had a question on blinky mode with the Lrp SXX vs the stock spec. On the stock spec both the turbo/boost and feel profiles have to be set to 0 to achieve blinky, but with the SXX just the turbo/boost has to be set to 0...so you could essentially run the feel profile at 10 and get a more aggressive throttle profile. Wouldnt the SXX models be better for blinky for this reason? Thanks!

Anyone in the know feel free to answer!

Yes if you have SXX V2 with V1.5 sw you can run the feel at 10, but in reality all you are doing is giving the throttle positive exponential. Same as you can do with your radio, you will not gain any speed through this but it might "feel" quicker.

If your SXX V2 has 3.0 or 4.0 firmware, feel and boost must be at zero to get blinky mode.

Now the big problem was that it got stuck and in trying to wiggle it out the inner tube on battery spins now. I checked the batterys power and no go! Talked to Stormer Hobbies (great service by the way). Told me to call Associated and they said to send it and they will check it out. I hope they can fix it cause I really like my new batteries. They gave me the strongest run time yet. I was using TQ bullets and they fit inside all my other batteries some loose and some just right. I was told about the Associated bullets and I think I am going to be ordering some of those soon. I like the way you can solder to the top of them and that they flare out to grab so they wont slide out! No advice needed, just wanted to tell you my story and I learned my lesson. thx
Associated just sent me a new battery with a package of bullets! How cool is that. Thank you guys very much! JB

Hi Everyone, sorry for the delay. Like Sean mentionned I was away for over 3 weeks so I had very limited access to internet so I will try my best to answer your long overdue questions.

Hi,

If I was to run on medium bite carpet track witrh sorex 28, I would start with my SuperStock setup from IIC. I would add maybe half a mm of uptravel and work it from there. This setup is what I usualy run everywhere on carpet.

Thanks
Hi,

I usualy give my car a little push and then measure ride height. mine usualy has about .5mm difference but never 1.5 ! Maybe you could check your shock oring to make sure nothing is bound up or in the suspention parts see if there is anything sticky ? if not maybe your oil is too thick ?

regards!
I don,t have a picture right now but I usualy measure a little below the screw on the arm where the arm have a little nub to take that measurement. Also what I do most of the time is set it with uptravel with a ride height gauge and then juste make sure it is even with the ae gauge.

not in the main. and i would of won if i wasn't peeled. oh but that is more than enough haynes talk on the hebert thread.

keven - i'm happy to see you (and most of AE) will be representing ROAR at the Worlds. hopefully you've learned some new tricks while racing overseas that will come in handy. i gotta say that outdoor track in the Amsterdam is just scary looking. if the real track races anything like the game play in VRC, i'd need 8 complete cars to finish the week of racing there.
