Or just a drill bit or countersinking bit and go slowly.

Acetone will remove ca and not harm the chassis, you'll have to work at it with small ammount on a towel. I used it to remove excess glue that ran over the side of th chassis once. You can get it at lowes/home depot.

Acetone is the way to go. It will look new again.

Hi,

With some motors, the axle of the rotor touches the pack, so I would like to cut the axle and make a closer to the motor bearing flat spot .
What's the way to do please? I worry a little to damage the rotor.

I was thinking about using this tool I have to make the axle shorter and the flat spot:

Put a pinion on at the correct position, then use a dremel

Try remove it with CA debonder or nitro fuel...

no worries... i have glued my fingers to the chassis a few times lol q tips work great and over the years i have tried many different types of glue and found that "PINK ZAP" has never failed me!! always a great finish. a few drops on a a plastic bag like the ones that your parts come in, roll the q tip around in it and aply.. try it out! works for me!

The t4 worked great last night! I managed to TQ and win the A-Main! I know that the normal race leader did have issues with his car so I don't expect to hold onto that lead to long.

I used the kit setup and just went with 2 degrees in the front and in the rear. Still looking for a bit more turn in (initial steering?) as the car pushed a bit. Funny thing is I cannot get this car to traction roll. Call me crazy, but I want my car to traction roll, then I just back the setup down from there.

What things can I do to get traction roll? (Dumb I know)

Also, when setting up your cars, what forward/rear weight balance do you run? I have taken great lengths to get a 50/50 weight balance with the body on. Is that what I should be shooting for?

adjust your ackerman so the outside wheel turns more, reduce castor, reduce front camber, remove anti roll bar,soften front shocks, stand them up more that should get your car to roll over..........why you would want to is another quetion!
