When using the Wildthing shock alu mounts, what size screw do you use on each side, and do you use any shims on the back of the shock tower.

..We've been using alloy 3x6 buttonheads on both sides; haven't needed any shims.. finish with a 3mm countersunk washer mounted backwards; reference haywoods pic on the last page..

Default Slop

I've developed some slop in my rear hubs and in the rear arms where they mount to the chassis. Looks like its in between the pivot ball and plastic inserts. Anyone else have this problem?

Me to. But it is not back and forth, but upwards. Overall I think there is to much slop in the Mi5. It is worse in the front in the caster blocks, and I have not yet heared about a fix, ore a statement from Schuamcher if this is normal or what to do to solve these slop things.

heard something about a set screw mod to eliminate slop in the front and rear hubs. Found this from Adrian: To get rid of the slop in the front caster block and rear hubs drill a 7/64" hole for an M3 set screw from the bottom of the part to the hinge pin hole. Use m3x3mm pinon set screws. Works great.

I also squished my ball cups per Martin's blog and that got rid of all remaining play. My car's suspension is very free moving but has zero slop in any direction.

Hi guys,

Just bought myself an Mi5, and I need some pinion advice.

I plan to run a 17.5 SpeedPassion V3 motor with no timing. The track is indoor carpet, with a medium lengt straight.

What pinion/pinions should I get to start with? I plan on using the 48p spur, but I'm curious to know why some choose to run 64p?

Cheers

The main problem seems to come from the kingpin going through the bearing in the front mini caster block, and not from the caster block and the hinge pin. It is realy irretating with all the sloop in the front.

Did you replace the king pin screw w/ the suggested 4mm x 14mm buttonhead screws?

I always use 96 spur or lower.... pinion will depend on the motor and temperature.
Try to start around 3.9 final then go down from there..... not sure how much built in timing the SP motor has (check the SP thread).

Have fun

For a Speed Passion I'd start around a 4.5 and work from there. Even the fixed (10 degree) timing motor works well at that ratio. Anything more just deadens the bottom and doesn't seem to gain any top speed.

SP v3 17.5 has 0-10 degrees adjustable timing, if it's the MMM version those have 15 degree max sensor boards.
