Default Big Bore membrane problem + preload

Dear all,

i have a problem with the big bore membrane getting deformed (like reversed bubble) and wont go back to its original state. Any one with the same problem.. I am running 4mm preload with a 1mm hole drilled on the upper cap for a smoother ride in our bumby track.

Thanks

It may be possible that you are hitting the membrane when the shock is fully compressed. It should not really ever, but maybe that is what is going on. Make sure that on the fronts, you have the plastic ball ends tightened completely, so the shaft does not go all the way up and the piston sits more in the middle of the body. Depending on the rear and the way you use it, you may have to monitor this as well.

Also when building the shocks it is important to make sure the membrane is centered very well. I try to make sure when I tighten the cap I spin the plastic part so that the membrane stays centered.

Let me know how things go and good luck. I am not sure but I think there may also be an updated membrane that fits the big bore shock a little better in the center of the body.

That's what I did I tightened up all the way and now I tried kyosho v1 rrr bladder which I had running around. They sealed very nice and I also check the seating like you said. Car was using all the travel as the body plastic mount on the rear shock tower had tire marks (strange but true) I also went for a heavier spring all round. Will be doing some testing this weekend, car was dialed before the bladder issue. Thanks DJ

I would run your normal set up and make the shocks with 1 hole front and 2 hole rear. use 50 wt oil in the front and 55 rear. 4.6 front spring and 3.9 or 3.8 rear spring. Start with them laying down. If you run the rear extensions then go 1 up.

I will post what I am going to use for a starting point set up later today.

See ya there in about a month,

DJ Apolaro

Here is what I am going to start with. I am assuming the traction will be high. If not my settings may change. We will just have to see.

Thanks,

Hi guys,

New to on road nitro. Thinking of picking up the lab c02 black edition. I found a seller on ebay selling it for 669USD shipped. Is that a good deal on the car? Also is there a new one coming out soon? Not familiar with product releases in onroad since mostly an offroad racer. Xray is coming out with the 2014 but I am staying away from xray since parts are too expensive (and I break xrays as well ). Who will be selling parts in the USA? Acorn racing/speedworld (my LHS) won't carry them anymore so I might have to settle on the xray but I do love the LAB cars.

-Alok

The new importer for the USA is www.capamericarc.com

They have everything you may need and a live website. If there is something you are looking for, you can always email them for help. I am working with them on doing videos and they are very involved in the race community.

you can also check them out on www.facebook.com/capricornamerica

Good luck and I am sure you will love the car. It is second to none!!

Default Black Edition linkage plastic parts

Hi there
Is it possible that the white plastic parts for the linkages are missing?
There are just the white parts for the shocks included.

The black edition should have come with the white plastics.
If they aren't in your kit contact your reseller or Capricorn directly.
You should receive the parts with no questions asked.

Default Chassis weights

Hi can someone tell me if the brass chassis weights effect the handling of the car. or are they just to bring the car up to weight. Some other brands have a sliding weight they claim by moving it back gives more steering. does our weights have the same effect. I never use mine because the car is already over weight Thanks in advance
