hey stephen,

you wont need brakes in stock.i actually use roll throttle when i do run stock.all of the cars chatter with a spool when you turn the wheel to lock.you dont need that much steering.adjust the push out of the car and you will find the car to be really smoothe in the corners.a spool is the way to go buddy.once you get the car the way you like it you will never run a one way.

it will still chatter on the ground if you turn the wheels to extreme angles.as the cvd's break in it is less noticable.key is to get the car to turn without oversteer.

and grease in them helps A TON!!! i figured that one out lol, after everyone told me that it helped soo much, but the chatter still did bother me also, why do they chatter in the air, theres no strian on them, and they would spin at the same speed as a diff so???

the cvd's do not rotate smoothly at full lock because they are not true cvd's.there is only 1 cross pin and there is limited movement.when your wheels are at full lock,so is the axle and cvd.when they are at full lock,every point during the rotation the the pin crosses the inside angle of the cvd,it deflects a slight bit and this is what the chatter is.if you keep it from fully locking,there will be no deflection.you just need to keep it from reaching its locking point

The Losi "LCD" is the only one I know of that is a true CVD (there maybe more) and does not vibrate at it's extreme endpoints. But the most important point is not having the "most steering throw" in your car, but (as Protc3 said) getting the steering out of minimal steering throw (greater corner speed and reduce tire wear).

So just ignore the vibration at the endpoints cos you should not be setting your car up with this much reach in the first place.

Anybody know of some hobby shop(s) within the USA, besides Stormer, Speedtech, Tower that have the following parts in stock? (Prefer to stay within USA, unless shipping is "reasonable" for out of this country.)
  • Front Ball diff
  • Locked layshaft pin/rod
  • 16 tooth alum. pulley
I checked all the sites listed above and am looking for a one stop deal. I know tower has everything but the layshaft. I want to snag all it in one shopping trip and was hoping maybe someone knows of a shop around here that has what I need.

And to think of it before, I had one of these cars back in late Aug. and I regret selling it. At least this time I got to assemble it!

Dont worry it is in good hands and still kicking ass, If you wanted to buy it back it could be negotiated.

any 64 dp spur will fit as long as its smaller than 108 as this size sticks out of the chassis

Im lazy so im quite partial to using an 81T (48 pitch) spur.
The pinion effectively matches the rollout when you use rubber tires :P

I think you will struggle to get higher than 35mm rollout though if that is what you require.
