The chatter is coming from the CVD's because they are new and they are being extended past there maximum angle range. However, it is not necessary to have all this travel when setting up your steering throw and you will not be missing out on having enough steering if you reduce the amount of steering throw the car has. Another benefit of having reduced steering throw is you should notice reduced front tire wear as well. This is because when you go to turn the car itís not scrubbing in the turn, but itís actually steering in the direction of the turn.

My suggestion is you put the car on a setup station and adjust the steering throw endpoints on the transmitter (for the outside wheel) to around 18 to 20 degrees, and this should eliminate or greatly reduce the chatter. I also in most circumstances run my dual rate around 80% as well and it is rare that I need to dial in more steering.

Hope this helps...


.

And if you want to get rid of the chatter, then put some of HB's thick A grease in the out drives (I know it comes with the spool kit, I dont know if theres a part number for it or not) Thats where all the chatter is coming from

But 2 Bad's right, the 18-20 deg of the set up station is what to do, and then tune your car to get more steering....

Interesting to see that they are saying the next Worlds will be at Bangkok... I thought it was yet to be decided between RCS in Bangkok and TRC in Trang?

Alswo Strange that they would go back to a saddle pack for the batt's....especially with Lipo's on the horizon.

weird, the UK are going hardcased lipos only. Also, we all know, prototypes aren't the finished product, look at the TM E4 pics.

I agree, Max amps IS crap, its over price, and over rated crap...... While you wont be pushing a pack very hard in a touring car (compared to something bigger) They dont hold there 20C, there more in the 15-17 range..... There good packs, and Austin is a super nice guy, im not to into MA......
