you can also make an air vent on the side of the body to help direct more air to it.

If you've already seen one, then why are you asking for us to take a pic and upload it? Personally, I'd only use a fan if the sun was 200ft from the track surface and my motor comes unsoldered. But for the most part, it should reserved for extreme conditions.

Also, you did not specify what kind of motor and what gearing...or how efficient your drive train may or maynot be. It could be many things....

As for holes in the side of the body, yes you can But they won't be legal at sanctioned races.

Hey Rod, you seem to have a lot of time right now :-). I always wondered what made the Glue turn white??? What do we do without you. Are you heading to HiTec this Weekend?

I don't know what makes the glue turn white...but I can tell you that the fumes make your eyes tear and gives you a splitting head ache.

The hitech race sounds like it's gonna be fun. At first I said no way....when it got closer, I actually started to think about it, but now it's too late. There's no Factory Stock class to run in hehe. Besides, I need to do some setup testing at TA on Saturday. Can we say "Killer B's"

Guys, I looked back a couple of pages, but I don't remember ever seeing a chart that compares the Tamiya on-road tuning springs to say the AE or Yokomo springs. I'm really just curious what AE spring is close to the same rate as the yellow Tamiya. Is it the silver?

Thanks in advance guys!

Hey BigDog, Ling did some measurements with AE and Tamiya springs. Here are his results:

"These springs were all measured on a materials test system [all units are in in/lbf]. Listed are actual measurements from stiffest to softest.

Associated White 40.4
Associated Yellow 33.8
Associated Purple 31.2
Associated Copper 24.6
Associated Red 23.2
Associated Gold 18.8
Tamiya White 16.5
Associated and Tamiya Blue 16.3
Associated Silver 14.5
Tamiya Yellow 13.0
Tamiya Red 11.8
Associated Green 11.5


Joven - the associated silver springs are inbetween the tamiya blue and yellow."

Thumbs up bouncy bouncy

Hey Rtype which springs did you run at the RROC ?

So are you REALLY blowing off SoCal until after the TCS race ?

If so couldn't you have done that a week earlier so I could win that bet

Ive got a quick question that maybe some of you can help me out with....

For some reason, Im hearing a slight clicking sound that I think is coming from the one-way. If i spin the one-way by itself, Its nice and smooth and quiet, same with the back diff, BUT if i spin the 2 rear weels together (i.e like a motor is attached), it clicks!

I just rebuilt the diff and the one way is very new. Any ideas on what it could be? Possibly the casing? I just replaced the one-way gear, so i dont think its that...

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks
