some advice not as it attract dust..

if you do.. what grease to put on??

thanks
Never put grease on the pinion or spur, Grease is a dust magnet. Use a soft brush or air compressor (if available where you run) to remove dust after each run. It only takes a minute and you may come across other areas that need attention.

Where'd everyone go?!?

I've been busy with work the past couple weeks, but going to head to the track on Tuesday for some practice. Need to try out the new arms and gears still. Looking forward to some good results.

Most likely OC, I have plans at 6 so I can still get in at least 5 1/2 hours of practice before then since they open at 12...

whats the thoughts with chassis weighting the 201. tamiya suggests 30grams at the servo if using lipo. rudebits seem to make some really nice weights. is anyone using them, and if so, which? the 32gram servo weight looks like a good idea..

Im thinking about getting a 201 buggy in the next week or so. just a couple of q's. Do B4 rims fit the 201 or are they mounted differently? pretty new to off road so not sure, what bodies will fit it? will JC b4 bodies fit fine?

im using the 72gr rudebits plate under my servo(racing on grass and cneed to get the nose down big time)im also runing between 60-100 gram on the battery strap,although still playing with this.if you look up lee martins pre euro setup he has the weights he used on the mostly dirt track(which where rudebits)

b4 rear wheels are a direct fit and you can fit the b4 fronts if you get the optional imperial axles(you will also need b4 front wheelbearings)

you will need to get the 201 body as the b4 body doesnt fit without alot of trimming(basicaly the front of the shell)

Haven't seen those weights until now, that's some pretty cool stuff. Wonder if the 511 weights will fit on the 502

Lee's setups can be found here -> http://www.trfracing.co.uk/page_1265126433672.html

or http://www.petitrc.com/setup/tamiya/...yaTRF201X.html

Randy's setups are also nice for dirt tracks.



PS:I wonder if 501/511 sway bar will fit 201.Carpet indoor season is coming it may be usefull

cool! thanks afonso.

i also tonight drilled out the caps on the dampers and refilled them. it does make a huge difference to their performance, they are now much more buttery smooth with no air cavitation whatsoever. sweet!
