Hi guys just wondering if some could give me some info on the best way to adjust the battery slots on my BMItc3 to seat 3300's properly. Mine dont sit good in the chassis at all and when i tighten the battery brace down I think it is tweeking the car? At the moment I even tried taping them in to bypass this problem. Also I'm still having problems with rear traction on this car , for anybody who remembers my posts about this problem about a month ago I have tried all your suggestions with still no real cure for the problem and it's starting to become a real bummer. I'm still running rubbers, sorex32 c med inserts now seem to be the best tyre combo so far on med to high bite ashpalt, I continue to spin the rear around on corners and for the life of me ant work out whats wrong . I've tried all forms of tyres, shock angles, springs, camber,etc. The frt is good now but the rear is too unpredictable any further help or suggestions would be great!
PS. My home track is the England Park track,Brendale Queensland Australia venue for the 2006 nitro worlds, just to let you know!
hI Jason thanks for repling my setup is currently as follows :
Caster; frt 4*, kickup 0*, rear kickup 2*.
Rear shock tower on frt running middle hole on tower , outside on arm. rear shock tower rear outside hole on tower and arms.
Shocks ; frt 40wt , rear 40wt,
frt spring gold, rear silver, tried green felt not great difference.
rear toe 3*, frt 0*
Camber 1.5 frt & rear
Camberlinks upper inner, upper outer on rear hubs.
Tyres tried sorex 28 B med , 32 C med , 36 takeoffmeds.
Motors; reedy 19 turn , trinity d3.5 11*3, Revolution 10*1.
Body Mazda 6
Droop Assoc. gauge; frt 6 , tried 7, rear 4 , tried 5.
Think that's about it ! Car seems to be tweeked but comes up pretty good when checked and only requires very minimal adjusted to the preload.
What I have noticed that I wanted to ask u about was , when tightening the top deck down I have noticed, after doing the chassis posts on the corners, and then doing the gearbox housing support posts up that they seem to be shorter than the corner posts there by pulling the upper deck down in nthe middle by maybe up to 1mm on 1 post. I have measured the posts up and they seem to be a touch over 11mm, maybe 11.1,11.2mm.
It seems to be mainly one corner that is maybe 10.9!!!!mm, on the gearbox posts. What do u think? What measurement should they be ? This is not a new car but close!! Thanks for any advice , Sorry I didn't reply sooner
