Hi Speedy,

I'm reltively new to this.. so I'm not too sure of what you just said to do.
Is there any way to explain this any more detailed for me?? Are you saying to shorten the throw (lower the endpoint) on the throttle so the brake linkage don't travel as far?? Sorry if I am mis-understanding. I have not really set any adjustments on my radio yet. I have Airtronics MX-3S and the manual that came with it is horrible (I think). The brake linkage don't have far to go before it hits the tank, so I'm not sure I can even do that.

I can take a picture of my setup or make a video tonight so you can see what exacltly is happening if you'd like.

Thanks

You should take a picture please.
A picture of mine wouldn't do any good. Horns may be different......
I had to flip my holder around that is on the servo horn. The holder's hole for the brake rod is now towards the outside of the horn rather than the inside. This creates an angle so the rod is away from the tank rather than going across it.
Dont take your springs out yet. Let's see if we can get you going right.

Red face Move the lever.....

Loosen that top screw and just move the lever to make the rod more towards the spur gear. That's all we did to get our linkage to go past the tank.
You have alot more room to move. Center the rod between the spur and tank and check both extremes of movement.
No problem,
TEX

Default linkage

Thanks Tex,
I'll try to move it over even more and see. I was afraid of it hitting the diff.


Speedy: Thanks! I know what you mean now and I'll try that as well.


Thanks for for all your help guys


What engines are you guys running on your buggy?
I currently have a Hyper .21 4 port and I absolutely hate it. It has to be
tuned EVERY time I start it. If I tune it, it runs awesome. But if I turn it off and start it later.. it barely moves again and I have to re-tune it. I wonder if I have an air leak on the back of the engine. I hear the Hyper engines are notorious for leaks. Engine only has like 15 - 20 tanks through it (including breakin). I was looking at a Novarossi 21-5 engine. The specs on it looked awesome. I definately need to retire the Hyper engine for a paperweight or toss it out. I got the engine brand new for free, so I can't really complain. I think my 2nd choice would be the RB concepts C6 (C5 BB) engine.

Talking You should be fine......

If you are still worried when you extend the rod towards the spur gear, just flip the holder part towards the inside of the servo horn. That will keep it straight instead of being angled. You will get a better pull on the lever.

I run a Nova P5X and a Nova 3 port. Both are great engines. I run mostly on short indoor clay tracks though.

I don't have much to tell you. I'm sure someone else may though.
My Hyper 8 is my first and only buggy i've owned. I really love it though.
It handles quite well I think, and it's got LOTS of steering in it. I wish I had bought a buggy long time ago.. I've had the most fun with my Hyper 8.

Tex1, have you weighed your H8? I saw a H7 last year (everybody where I run has Mugen or Kyo) and it was stinkin' light! Probably a pound or more lighter than the other cars.

Default Hyper 8 pipe

Hey guys.. I just bought a new Nova Rossi 21-5 engine and wondered if anyone has used the stock Hyper 8 pipe on a Nova engine.

Also, anyone have an specs on the H8 pipe? (tuned? lowend, highend?)

Thanks,
Eric

kahuna- i have sold my jammin for a hyper 8 so i have driven both, but my jammin did not have the big bore shocks from what i hear its a different car with big bores. the jammin was a good car but it seemed to leave me wanting more. the hyper 8 is light has a lot of steering, parts are cheap the car is cheap but it handles as well as anything out there. and it is fun to drive i haven't heard anyone complain about anything on the car everyone that has one just loves it me included.

rhazzed- i have been told by a couple different people that the stock hyper8 pipe is equivalent to a ofna 086 or top end pipe. i have a p5x and have not run it since my local track is not real big i run a jp-2. i have heard that the stock pipe will scream on novarossi's but if you run on a tight track you might want to try a jp-2 or jp-1.

davidka- it is very light i havent weighed mine but i'am sure its lighter than the h7 and probably weighs right around what an x-ray weighs which is a pound lighter than the mugen or k-car
