Are you racing carpet or asphalt, indoor or outdoor?

Could you post your setup?


Thanks

It was a big outdoor track with asphalt, the rest of the season is mostly on a large carpet track but also smaller carpet tracks.
I will post my setup tomorrow or tuesday.

I'm just ordered an S2. Can anyone recommend shim diameters, thicknesses, and quantities to order to get the suspension and drivetrain set up perfectly?

spec r
SPR-R1H711

then you might want swaybars which is a different list but not expensive. you can search the thread for those part numbers.

Here's where I'm at for medium/high traction asphalt atm. http://www.petitrc.com/reglages/spec...toria20140907/

Pretty happy so far. Only thing to help me win at this point is more wheel time. Looks like we will have a semi perm.facilty this winter so I should get tons better at tc on carpet.

Have to transition this setup to.modified. maybe just a softer springrate. Not sure yet.

My Kawada spurs are far to wide in the middle, so the bushing sticks out.
Obviously cant use them & I dont want to start hacking into the bushing untill I get some spares of those. Only seen to able to get the white bushing, not the original plastic bushing.
Ive run wide spurs all last year with out any problems. The bushings stick out but it lets the layshaft have a little walk side to side. Felt like it helped give it a 'floating' effect. Cant prove it helped but def didnt hurt the belts or anything else.

Hope that helps.

Hi guys,

I've read various different things about x-Ray and spec-r parts being interchangeable. I've also read that the spec-r is a copy of the x-Ray. Can anyone confirm this and shed light on the details of part compatability?

Cheers
Ryan

It's not an exact copy, but they're close. When you consider that Spec-R made aftermarket replacement parts for X-ray, then they decided to build their own car, they used parts that they already had. So a lot of things are the same.

Thanks crispy. Is there a list somewhere that shows the compatible parts?

Oh heck no. Nothing official like that would ever be generated by Spec-R. The best you could hope for is to read through this thread or hope someone summarizes them all.

Anybody know where to find replacements for the screws on the HD diff? The manual shows them as an M2.6x11 flat socket head machine screw, but the ones in the bag were actually a flat phillips head self tapping screw, made of very soft material that crumbled under the mighty torque of my manly wrists.

They aren't going to survive many more remove/install cycles, so I want to get spares or better yet a socket head replacement made out of harder steel.

I think Tamiya has something similar to that. I'll give a look see in my box tonight when I get home. If I remember though, the Tamiya ones weren't all that much stronger than what you described...

Has anyone tried a Sukuras metal layshaft pulley kit (holder + pully) on this?
Its considerably cheaper the the Spec-R equivalent

Or even one of these Aftermarket parts for the Sak?
