I've received my F201 yesterday
I finished to mount the gearboxes (I'm waiting for the Eagle Chassis)
the diff action is very smooth (I installed the Tech Racing Delrin outdrives) but the transmission doesn't feel so good. perhaps because of the bearings...
Would it be a good idea to breakin the transmission for a very long time?(10hours @2,5V)
Not for 10 hours, this is what I did....
First battery pack, 1/ 2 speed 5 minutes,checked temp. let everything cool off and check diffs/tranny/steering.
Second pack ran almost full speed and not at full speed londer then 5 seconds, then check everything including temp.....
3rd ran at full speed but not at race level did tweaking at this time, checked temp.
4th Race level.... ( Between 4th and 5th replaced lower arm because I got a little too cocky with car...
5th All broken in... I check the motor and battery temp after every run now... I've found 1 of my packs had a dead cell this way..
