Im stumped, as I said I am no noob and this has got me baffled
I actually have had to put a small washer on the end of the crankshaft before putting the thrust bearing assembly on. I have these small 3mm washers that have the exact OD of the crank, so it makes the crank 1mm longer which gives you more room to play with when shimming.

I run the 35plus21 motors and they use a 5mm wide front bearing. I ordered bearings for my motor and they sent me the standard 6mm wide bearing once. I would check and see if you have the right front bearing in the engine. I have had no problems with crank length. All my motors use 3 to 5 shims in the thrust bearing to achive the right clearance. Just make sure the bearing is flush with the case in the front.

I'm getting ready to buy a MRX4-X to run a few races this fall at RAMS then next season. Can some of you RAMS guys recommend any parts I need for proper set-up. Also, what Novarossi engine are you all running, if any?
Thx,
G

I don't run at RAMS but the car comes pretty much ready to kick butt. The one piece motor mount is nice but not a must. I use a Serpent 16 tooth aluminum front pulley but most people use the stock plastic one. You might want to pick up a harder clutch spring. Either a MSR black or Orion CRF spring. That's about it.

The car is great out of the box. One peice motor mount & pressure chamber are the most common upgrades. Msr clutch spring is also really good. The rest of it is lightening the car. Titanium screw kits, turnbuckles, mid shaft, MSR light weight pulley adapters, ceramic bearings, ect. But that is all options and not really things you need to do right away. Come by the track and see me, we will get you setup for rams.
As far as Novarossi engines I run the 35plus21 Cordoba with the 2015 pipe. 359 and 35plus21 are really good motors as well. Also alot of guys are really liking the Picco motors. Fast and most of them are making run time.

You can talk to Billy from Franciscan Hobbies. He can get what ever you need.
The Cordoba engine is a version of the 35plus21.

How far off the front bumper are you guys mounting the Pro-Line Frizbee?

I've already tried one and mounted it way too far back (Like 3mm off the front bumper...)

Default Tyre wear

Hi there!

Whenever I run a long stint and use up a complete set of tyres I will end up with an incorrect split. Example: I true the tyres to 68F 75R and end the run with 60F 65R. What would you recommend to get more even tyre wear? Switch to a different shore combo F/R od tweak the set-up. What could I change on the chassis in order to have less wear on the rears?

Thanks a lot for letting me hear your thoughts!

Stefan

Oops, I forgot to include this piece of information in the original post. I use 35 shore foam all around.
