If you've JB welded it, probably not.

If you haven't, you could try heating it up with a lighter or some other moderate heat source and then wiggling it off, but the heat might damage the rubber in the carb, along with potentially squashing the carb barrel when you try to clamp on to the adapter when you remove it.

elvo - Were you at Hemet? That's exactly what we were doing..haha.

Using the firmer foam will allow the ribs to dig into the dirt instead of simply folding over, due to the extra support the carcass is recieving from the foam. The only time I have run this is on a very loamy but well groomed track.

Ryan and I were doing this to get more steering..that's really the only reason.

Dave - Jeff hit the nail on the head.

NVisible - It is possible that a washer or something else is missing from the diff. If not, I know shims exist with the correct ID to shim the diff between the bearings..but I have no clue where I've gotten them from..

So Aaron--

You've recommended the .12 WASP but also like the OS .12 CV-R. Do you know how these engines compare??

Thanks

PS Didn't look like such a big turnout this time at Babcock....Maybe he started too soon.

Aaron - no I wasn't.

It puzzles me why you use a red compound tire on a very loamy track.... but if it works- whatever!

Could you post your entire set-up for Hemet?

NVisible - Sorry I wasn't much help with that one!

nutfluff - Hemet is a long way away from a lot of the racers in LA and around Hot Rod..and being the weekend following the Shootout, many racers needed a break.

The WASP has more power and great mid-range grunt, but you'll need an O.S. carb (and adapter) to make the engine easy to tune and drive. The CV-R is a great engine in its own right, and costs less than the Wasp after you buy the O.S. carb and adapter.

elvo - Red compound tires will not catch on ruts as much as Silvers will, and are often more consistent on loamy surfaces.

I will post my setup when my dad gets home..he has the setup sheet with him.

Yup goin back to Losi- for the simple fact that if you know you gotta win or if you gotta take one for the Team...its gotta be Losi!

I associate the gt with something I flush down the toilet.

Losi needs to come out with and 1/8th scale and they'll take over the world.

Thank You.

I bought a D6 motor 12x2 and it was absolute crap, we cut the com, put new brushes in, re-aligned the hood, broke it in and it still had horrible torque and no top end, we tried gearing it up, down, sideways. Still nothing, is it possible that we just got a bad motor? We're (me and my dad) are completely clueless.

Fran: What car, gearing, timing and brushes are you using? I assume you are running the Flat Wire?

Fran (I'm assuming it was Dan who typed that) - I'll take a look at the motor the next time I see you..probably the next JBRL race.

EVERYONE - I'm leaving for the third round of the Southern California Saturday Series at Pro-Line's facility in Banning, CA. Wish me luck!

Good Luck Aaron. It was indeed the flatwire, I believe 14 degrees of timing (although we went up to 20 trying to tweak it) I think stock spur gear with a 17 pinion or 18 tooth pinion in a XXX-4. We run our Maxtech 11x2 with a 17 tooth and it had punch and very good high end speed. I'll definatly show it to you at Camarillo Aaron. See if we can work on it a bit more.

Aaron,

I'm back! Finally! Anywhoo.....I'm running my XXX BK1 at a "big race" here in the next few days and had a question about your BK1 setup. You run the front link at 1-B. What exactly does that do for you? I'm going out to the track for some testing tomorrow so I'll try it and see how it feels. Otherwise here's what I'm planning on running.

Front:
30 -wt
57 -piston
silver -spring
.200" -limiter
2 on tower.....inside on arm
3-B link. However if the 1-B feels good then, I'll experiment more with that.

Rear:
27.5 -wt
56 -piston
yellow -spring....unthread 3 turns
no limiter
2 on tower......inside on arm
2-A link.
hub in middle

This track is VERY large http://www.amainraceway.com/content/...d_OD_track.asp So any thoughts and or comments are always apprecieated!

Thanks!
