Spinall4,

That is a good question. I saw a large drawout of how it all works in this mo. mag. I think it was RCextreme or RCdriver. The bottom line is the thinner the oil the more the tires will spin. The thinker the more the tires will pull. You can also go to much so be careful not to go to extremes on the Oil. If you are running buggy. A safe bet is to go F5,C7,R2 or F5,C5,R3/2.

Guys correct me if im wrong.

Does the switch on the regulator take the place of your regular switch?

Yea, it looks sweet but I got impatient and ordered a muchmore 5 amp regulator, venom 800mah lipo. and a dynamite lipo charger.. that venom pack is very small I just hope it last a while!!

Does anybody else run an 800mah lipo... if so how long does it last?

IT LIVES!!! My throttle servo survived yet another raceday. That includes several practice runs, and pushing the car hard all night. I also replaced my steering servo with a 333 oz Hitec digi, very impressive servo. The only thing that happend to the car all night, the Clutch Bell Retaining Screw came loose. I thread locked and tightened it back up...can ran GREAT!

While I was practicing, I noticed that after a 7 minute run, I still had plenty of fuel left. So we timed it to see how long I could run without refueling. 13 Freakin Minutes!!! The track is small, I rarely use full throttle(once, very briefly on the kinda short straight section), and it's a 21BF Top motor on a JP-2 pipe. I had my brother time it before, and he told me 14 minutes. If I hadn't timed it myself...I wouldn't have believed it...seemed impossible.

Anybody else have info
Sorry for the slow reply... been off-line.

My Novak regulator is tucked into the receiver compartement. It would actually fit better in the battery compartment, but the wiring would have been more difficult. I like to unplug my Lipo whenever I'm not running the car. With the battery in the back and the next component (the regulator) in the receiver compartment, I could put a plug between them that sits next to the throttle servo.

And Lipos are 3.7 volts/cell nominal I believe, but when fully charged they are 4.2 volts/cell.

Yes, 6061 shoes are softer than 7075 shoes there fore they will have more "grab" but will also wear faster. Hope that answers your question

Default throttle servo problems

was just checking to see if you guys have come up with a solution for the throttle servo problem. a friend of mine at the local track has just gone through his third servo, 2 - 8800's and a 4800. we had a new guy show up at the track with a rtr and he blew is throttle servo. i was just checking so i could pass on some info. i ran the 8 for about a month and i did not expereince any problems

Make sure your buddy has the linkage and the slide barrel on the carb adjusted so everything is level and straight so there is no stress on the servo . Currently at our track there are 6 8ights and everyone has the carb and linkage right and no problems .
