Just thought I'd let you know that everyone who used an F-Line brush today was impressed, I had a number of fellow drivers "relieve" me of my spares...

As far as I know, at least 2 cars who were in the a-final used the F-lines, at some point in the day. Both were very impressed with the power gain

Myself, I had an interesting day... ended up Q'ing 9th in C after some poor luck in Q (broke a wishbone on the car big style on my best run had less than a min too go to ....last time i try and be fair too a backmarker). Made a decent start to the final, up to 5th I believe, then started to get "attacked" by some very un-sportsman like behaviour, at one one point got rammed sooo blatently up the arse by the guy who finished second, not a happy bunny. Kinda lost the motivation a bit, and made a few errors myself, so finished 9th. I seem to be getting worse....
Still, my moster performed very well, after i got the gearing right, ended up running a similar ratio to what i had been with the ROAR (with 767's/4499's vs F-lines in the monster).

Another positive for the day though is that i am pretty much sure that the main source of my problems has been dying batts, borrowed a few packs of decent matched ones today, had power all the way through each run, thank gawd i have a B-day coming up, just can't afford new ones on my own

You had better luck than me!

In the first Q i didn't manage 3 laps, my servo went crazy (when you let go of the wheel it would centre, but go past neutral and then come back a bit etc..like it was "bouncing" )..anyway, we couldnt solve the problem so we had to go and buy a new servo

in the second Q my servo saver came loose so i had no steering, nothing major..just one of them things i guess, i didnt manage 3 laps in that Q either.

in the 3rd Q my motor burnt out, the comm was destroyed and i think the bushings have had their days...we had to go and buy a new one (trust me to have this happen..when i got a new motor coming on tuesday )

in the 4th Q i did manage to get round and finish the heat...but not very well...i had some very bad laps (my mistakes, i must admit) that cost me atleast an extra lap, possible sneaked in for 2 (i was only 2 seconds off getting another in that heat anyway)

sooo.......in the finals, as you can probably tell i was in a very poor final. the start to the final wasn't very good, got knocked up arse end sending me into the barrier, and the dosey marshalls thought they had all the time they needed so i was last....worked my way back upto 3rd , i was catching 2nd and 1st very quickly (not quick enough though ) but run out of time..so i finished 3rd, well actually 2nd because 2nd place got a 9sec first lap (where the rest of us got a really long one) so that would of give him loads of time to get in for another lap....the race director is going to sort it out.

so, all in all it wasn't a good day.....an 8 meeting turned into a 180 meeting but basically it was just getting a setup for the TC4 which did in the end..just needs a couple of adjustments and i should be there.

soo, it should go much better next time (got the setup just about, better than my xray around there anyway )..well i hope it does because i'll hve EA power by then

i just hope i dont have the problems i had today..mainly because i can't afford to go replacing servos at themprice every month

something i forgot to add, was that i didn't skim the motor once all day, just gave it a quick brush over with a comm stick, the comm really didn't need it.... probably could have done with replacing the brushes for the final mind, but forgot about that

Regards
Ed

R/Monkey
Need your postal address send it to me by PM


I had a good day compared to you loy
TQ after first round 19t with F-lines, then droped to 4th then broke my beloved X-ray, then dropped to 7th in the A

I had the 19t way over geared, after i got back home i checked the ratio i ran last year (7.66), there i was trying to get speed out of the 19 at 6.5 no wonder it was getting to hot
in the final i went to 6.96, much,much,much better
I think i should right wright things down for the future
Every one here thought the F-Lines were much better, even a driver for the putnam brigade ended up using EA F-line instead of putnam grn/blue

loke like a few more f-line

R/monkey better luck next time & you tryhard you will have to `tryharder` next time

aye colin, will do....
Still not completely happy with the spool, I think i have an idea where i went wrong slightly today, should have moved the front shock tower in one hole, car was lacking turn-in compared to most in the final...

One day , i will get a spool setup I really like

If you lack turn in you should stand the front shocks up a hole this will give better initial turn in or reduce caster,
See we at C-SRACING will help with car set up as well as motors and cells
All the best Simon

Hi Colin,
Are you racing at the trintiy/losi shootout next weekend? I would check on the website but it seems to have been hacked . If your gonna be there is there any chance i could buy a 19t (epic based 1) of you? Also some f-line brushes as im hearing very good things about them.
Cheers Phil Chambers.

If you send mr jolly a pm with your phone no or you could ring him go to the web site www.c-sracing.com and there is all the contact details you would need and i am sure he will be able to help
And no he won`t be at the two day meet at dms

Default F-line brushes and reedy quad???

has anyone tried this, the F-line brushes sound awesomeand am wanting to try them in a quad (too skint to get a nice EA c2 atm LOL) has anyone had experience of this motor/brush combo, and will it require a different spring setup to the usuall 180* used with 767s?

cheers

Ta, thats what i thought....

I think i got to the bottom of problems with turn in, too much castor, gonna try some other things out next time i roll the car out

Still the Monster served very well today, it was a'singing down the (rather long) straight.... Any idea when you'll be getting some more F-line in? As I already mentioned, my stash was "raided" today, so many ppl wanted to try them, who was I to stop em eh?

It should work just fine in a quad mag. I tried them at the novak race and it was good. Red/purple or red/red on the springs.
