The rebound setting is more relevent to whether or not the track is smooth or bumpy. One would want a faster rebound for a bumpy track and a slower one for a smooth track surface.

this is the way that i understand it.

Peter and gang-I also think the 0-rings and foam thingies in the shocks help the shocks rebound when running very light oil and light springs. The cars the same weight as when you run in high bite conditions, but youve got way less spring rate to help car right itslef out of hard corners. Thats my take ayways. SO if car feels really sluggish to transition outdoors, or seems to stay leaned over after entering the straightaway-thats when I'd install the extra shock parts!!!

Hey,

Do any of you guys know how to gear a Reedy modified 8 double on an Evo III? I am currently running the 96 tooth spur. I will be running at the Tamiya track.

Thanks

you guys are exactly right! those are heat sinks that draw heat up through the screws that mount to the motor plate. these are also prototypes from troy crabtree (he makes the spools that have been advertised on this thread). these were the fist phase of this type of heatsink, and we found that they sit a little to close to the spur gear. we did some hand fitting there at the reedy race to move them further forward, and the new versions will have that problem fixed. also i think troy said something about making more/taller fins...

but beside that, they worked great, lowering my motor temps by about 15 degrees!!!
