Ghost...If you haven't yet try a little more camber like 1.5 - 2 or more. If you like it go to camber link A on the hub with the original camber 1-2.( shorter link will have more camber gain)

I'm also running a Ninja motor and just like sand geek. I had to rotate the carb just a bit so it wouldn't touch the center diff plate. Other than that, it fits perfectly.

[QUOTE=Aaron Waldron]Don - Not sure why the part would come from Chino? Losi and Horizon share a building in Ontario.QUOTE]

OK, I thought Losi was in Chino, but I guess they moved. I am just worried that I won't see the part that I need till 2 weeks or something. I should have it next day or day after.....

Ok you gotta work with me I'm running 3 I think 1.5 on each side and the A on the hub would be? Sorry I threw the car together and left for a 4hrs road trip to race didn't have time to look closely at the different settings.

Don - Yeah, they moved a couple/few years ago.

Ghost - Camber is measured in degrees per wheel...so 3 degrees camber would be 3 on each side. The A hole in the hub is the hole closest to the center line of the car.

Ridgeway - EXACTLY!

sand geek - Haha ok, that makes more sense. I wasn't really sure how that worked...but Ron knows his stuff so I wouldn't second-guess him.

Red face

I had to do the same thing with my OS-RG. THe carb boot on that thing is huge. It rubbed the upper center diff plate and the rear brake actuating rod. It would hit so much that it would actually fold over and pinch.

The Nova motors have a much smaller boot so they fit fine.

There are a lot of guys around me running the new VG. I'll check and see if this motor had the same problems.
I set mine up so I could still use the stock servo horns. This design is great and definitly something I wanted to stick with.

Car is running great.

So you mean run 3 on each side cause what I mean by 3 is 1.5 on each side I need to put it back on the setup station and do some more tweakin.

Anybody have the eye to eye length on the front and rear shocks? I may want to try something to tide me over until the truggy is out.

Homer,
It is kind of odd. It is the same increment as the rest of the springs. In the fronts the red is the heaviest. However, in the rear the reds are the lightest.

Blacks are odd like this as well.

In the front reds are stiffer than greens.
In the rear reds are softer than silvers.

I'll get you the numbers tomorrow.

The fronts are 4.1 rated.
The rears are 2.5 rated.

Talking

Ahhh - That would be good for all of those pro racer guys that take the color off of the springs anyway.
Sneaky.
I would think they should leave it. Packaging is already done and the parts list have it in print as well.
No biggie.
Funny though.


Arron you guys did a bang up job on this buggy.
