Install the 64-Pitch Gear Set-Up. It can get you the gearing you need. . .?

I believe you mentioned 64-pitch gearing("64DP").
my bad.

I'll try something out with the gearing. . .(I'm off work for the next 3-days).

And; I don't get this Blinky stuff. . .?

No no you're right I was talking about 64-pitch... But it was just my choice because I used to use it and as the primary transmission is protected you are taking no risk...

Hey,

I'm new here. Glad to find an active forum on RC Cars. I have a question, I'm looking for sway bars for my RS4 Sport 3 Flux, what you guys recommend?

I'm sure the stock class rules would allow you to install the carbon fiber and aluminum parts from hpi, since some AE cars run aluminum parts as stock.

My rs4 3 was the Subaru phatlace drift version, so the suspension is set up different, I picked up a used flux version, (minus the motor/esc) and its set up different. Could be whoever owned it fixed it or they change them at the factory.

Sway bars, try the Hotbodies set or some have suggested the AE sway bars.

Hey Airwave.
The RS4 Sport 3 chassis is heavy because of the Steel Center Shaft, those HEAVY Diffs(Diecast Ring Gear) and the Diecast Bevel Gears.

The Blinky Ratio you want is scary. (you have money to burn. . .Ha Ha!. . . Have fun!)

Tell me how well you do.

I was talking about blinky-0-timing, meaning the modifying the timing on the motor can is forbidden...

With that kind of setup, 1:5 is quite the optimal...

About the weight I will try to run a shory... Initially I bought this chassis for Rally, so...

You can reduce major weight on this car with the Exotek drive shaft and alloy diff gears, spur mount & hpi spool set.

• Exotek Alloy Drive Shaft – #1540
• Exotek Alloy Front Diff Gear – #1574
• Exotek Alloy Rear Diff Gear – #1574
• Exotek Alloy Spur Gear Mount – #1541
• HPI Racing 40T Spool Set – #114436

I looked-up Blinky Ratio. It said you can over-gear the motor while trying to achieve a faster top speed on the straight.
-The Blinky set-up sounds like more work (on-top of a lot of hard work).

Tell me how you got it done.

to find the proper ratio? start with something sure, like 1:6.0 and add teeth to the pinion. run for 2 minutes, check with a temp gun and compare the time.

That's why I hate blinky lol

Thanks for the info Cudacharger.
I only install factory parts on my chassis. But; those aftermarket parts look nice.

I installed the Spool.(it might be the last upgrade I install on the chassis)

Hey Cudacharger;
I thought about buying those Upgrades you listed for my RS4 Sport 3 chassis. But they're too pricey for this HPI chassis.

Tell me how well you do at the races with those Upgrades installed on the chassis.
