and don't get the rtr one, it looks "noobish" and, though it sounds ubsurd, the CB is actually stronger than the aluminum plate. if treated properly the CB can outlast aluminum, steel, and sometimes even titanium (sometimes). not to mention the fact that it's also a bunch lighter than any other material too. whenever you use CB, always put a little layer of CA glue around the edges to strengthen it further.

I got the rtr one and after reading what you said it was going over and over in my mind. I ordered the Fioroni servo tray. I believe the servo tray has alot to do with the look of your buggy.

Yes what can I say this hobby is like a drug. Gotta have....Gotta have.
The worst is that everyday something new hits the market.

cool. though you didn't need to get the Fioroni one, the stock Jammin tray works fine. but i know, it's all about being able to say "Hey, I've got Fioroni parts on my buggy!"

Default Servo Exponentials

On Sunday one of the veterans came up to me and asked what exponentials I was running. My remote is set on default wrt throttle and brake.
I can see the benifit of slowing down the Throttle servo but how does curves help.
How do you set your radio?

PS: I am using Futaba 9350 for both.

say you have a really torquey engine and you can't stop the wheels from spinning, even with a light trigger finger. if you slow down the initial opening of the throttle, your engine slowly delivers the power to prevent wheelspin. i don't find i use for the exp on my radio. you can use it on the steering too. perhaps you have a sweeping turn that turns into a tighter one. you can make it so that the wheels only turn say 1/4 the way for the first 1/2 of the steering wheel you turn, then the last half of the radio wheel it turn all the way. i hope you understand this.

the gold head engine is the 7 port version, but i think it was packaged wrong, because the 5+2 is generally the box for the 5 port.

Default CNC Parts vs Carbon Parts

It's funny to me cause i've heard of a few guys breaking their carbon front plate on the CRT but never the Servo Tray on the CR.
I have been racing my CRT since Feb and never broken anything on it, not even the carbon front plate.
I have been racing the CR since they first hit Australia about 18 months ago and never broken anything on either 2 of my CR's that i have owned.
I just bought the HN-X1S-50 CNC Front Plate for my CRT but only for some Bling.
Maybe i'm just lucky but i don't stack it too much either.
I try to drive slow enough to be fast and consistant without stacking it.
Oh well it works for me.
I do like the after market CNC parts though, they look schmik!
I'll stick with the HN ones cause i want to support my distributor here as he really looks after his customers here.

Well I suppose I do real hard riding. We have a very competitive a-mains. Most of the top riders in it. I normally qaulify last in the amain but I always finish my race. So my last 2 amain results were 4th in the amain. Being good is one thing but to win you must finish the race.
Also our track is very rutted this time of year and it throws your car all over the place.
Iget all the CNC parts so that my car is more than reliable. It just gives me more chances.

Our Qualifiers are hard work as well as our finals.
Our track is pretty rutted out at the moment too so i know what you mean.
I usually finish in the top 5 in buggies and top 3 in truggies too.
I found my chassis wears a bit but it's worth it to have the race bred machine at the tip of your fingers.
Where is your track Jerseyboy?

Yes I agree. My FTE is now 3 months old and the Chassis plate at the rear is worn to about 1.5mm. I am in the process of making for truggy and buggy skidplates. I'll attach a pic for you to see.

thats a pretty bad break in the servo tray Jerseyboy. i've never heard or seen it before. however i like the Fioroni tray, it's pretty slick.

you have a nice track there, i feel bad about how small and smooth my track is compared to yours. i like the mud flaps on the rear arms too, do they actually help?

macnkitty2002: The pic of the CRT I got off the net. I am making me one of those skid plates. I've seen those mud gaurds on another site made from carbon fibre. I dont know if it works or what benifit.

RCRacing.com.au:
Those pics are old of our track. We have made a raised pit lane etc. Looks much worse now.

Anyway I am still busy running in the GO21. On my 1oth tank and still needs a heatgun to start. I tried some pipes and the JP1 works well for truggy. Also JP3 is for buggy.

Check out this body I did last night. Must say I have never owned a Proline CRT body. I think its slick.
