just got my penguin backplate in today!! should i add any additional shims to the front oneway bulkhead? i only have the 2 silver shims as shown in the instructions. BTW, i have completely stripped 2 gears now, after 30 or so runs. so, i'm hoping this bigger backplate does the trick

In our track we use a 21 turn motor, which is pretty fast! Our lap times are only 1 sec less than those using modifieds. With the front differential I found the car handles better, is actually faster and after more than 40 runs, never changed a gear

Never used any shims either

With all these lightweight stuff, I had the possibility to add the titanium gear boxes (front & rear) and a cooling fan to the motor and am still under the 1.5 kg ... 1.499 to be exact (complete with electrics/wheels/body)!

Thats a good tip...

Where I can get that Propeler Shaft???

hierog, every box and diff is different there is no magic number that works every time. If you have the 10mm shim set just keep changing out shims until you feel a slight bit of lash between the 2 gears. You might have to shim the crown gear also to get the proper setting.

Default Balancing chassis

Hi Guys,

How do you guys go about balancing the chassis and what do you use to correct the weight differential?

I want to test my Surikarn at the weekend and want to make sure that I've got the chassis balanced.

Cheers, Mark.

Use the stick on wheel weights for your 1:1 car.

64DP, quieter, more efficient.

you can also get a wider varitey of overall ratios without changing the actual size of the spur/pinion that much

..so I THINK you can also get more overall ratios with 64 aswell.

becasue the teeth are alot smaller, with the evo there is limited space so say haveing 40 teech with 48 on a spur then going up to 50teeth that would be a big increase in size and you proberly wont fit it.

with 64 if you did that the spur wouldnt increas in size much.

if i were you, Ditch the kit spurs, they are very poo. weak matierial , too thick and dont seem to mesh very nicely ( it does but it can mesh alot better.. ) and get some RW spurs in the same sizes 90 and 96, then buy loads of 64 RW pinions

yeah RW as in the make of spur and pinion

Their Spurs are very thin and great matierial meaning less resistance, better performance!

Their pinions are great aswell

I wouldn't exactly call that news. More like speculation at this point. We'll have to wait and see.

Did ya know that the Evo7 is coming out?
