I think we still have the onw-way bearings in stock, but are out of the one way shafts.

Thanks for the thought Chris...Did the shock check already, but didnt look at the suspension movement, did break an arm earlier in the night, I will go through that if I get time this weekend. Chris, same question as Cain...any front one way diffs available yet? I was there on Tuesday and there was nothing.

Thanks
Joey

Default Suggestions

My SB is on it's way to me right now...what suggestions do you guys have for setting it up the right way the first time? I will be racing it on a fairly rough outdoor track that 8ths will be running on also, VERY large track, medium bite, some big jumps but mostly high speed corners with very little stop/go corners. Are there any tricks you can point out?
Thank you for your time!

With the track being rough, put the max antisquat & max degrees kick up in the front end. After assembling just the chassis bottom plate and suspension arms, check for binding/hitting the chassis. The chassis is a sedan chassis, designed to limit downtravel of the arms. A few cuts with a dremel type tool and full travel can be acheived without sacrificing any durability. You didnt say if the track is hard packed or loose/loamy, that would change what tires you run, and I am assuming that you already have sourced all the bearings needed and titianium turnbuckles. If you need more help, ask away, there are a lot of smart people here who can answer questions.

I am fine in the tire department. So far it is soft and loamy, they are trying to figure out how to get it packed...I would really rather a loose track, gets rough, I like it rough...

Thanks for the tip on downtravel...I had to do the same on a Hyper 7 I had. The Kyosho I drive now has too much downtravel so there I use the set screws to limit it.

The buggy should be here tomorrow or Tuesday!

Sounds like the track i run on.

If you are going with AE shocks, I am running a #1 piston in the rear and a #3 up front. This seemed the best combination for me as the oil rates that I end up using seem more in the right range ( 25 weight to 35 weight ).

The track is going to change but I was using on its roughest day 30 Weight up front, 25 weight in the rear. AE silver springs up front and green springs in the rear.

I also ran my lower shock position on the inner hole in the rear and the middle or inner hole on the front.

Its more trial and error than anything else. I have a little setup instruction guide that tells me what each change does and then go from there. I will post the website link when I get home.

Make sure you do the motor cam modification with a dremel ( cut a waffle like pattern on the part that fits into the motor mount ) and this will hold the motor better to the mount. Doesn't come out on high impacts anymore. I just reset it before each race, most times it doesn't need any changes.

If anyone has it, I need a setup for a smooth track, medium soft to hard ( nothing like Cali hard however ) surface with medium sized jumps as a starting point.

Thanks!

Hey guys,

checking in to see if anyone has any new knews?

I got word that UPS is going to let me keep my package ( they said they would pick it up, now they say to keep it ) but still do my refund. May have to look into moving some of the hopups over.

no news at the moment, Cain, except I ran my STR4 Pro on the weekend, and it was JUST as quick as the X-Rays TC3's and Yokomo's, highly competitive, and I didn't even change from the kit springs.

Oh, and I got a stinking cold, so if anyone wants it, it is free to a good (or bad) home....

I know the feeling, I am sick right now too. Man I am more pissed now, I really wish i could have run this sedan.

Looks like we may get rained out for our ROAR regional race. 70% chance of rain friday and saturday, and sunday looks like it will get some rain too.

With my moving and all, I want to get at least a few more good runs in on the vehicle before packing it up. Still checking to see what the classes are like out by where I am going and the support for parts there too.

The smooth part on the motor cam that goes into the motor mount, cut a "waffle" pattern on that.

I did this and it seemed to do the trick. I get barely any movement now, and only after alot of runs and serious hits.

A quick question:

We all know this ball diff:



But in the online cataloge of the shop I bought my SB-Sport, I also found this one:

ST-T54

Does anybody know something about this "white theethed diff"?
The Outdrives seem to be bigger in diameter - especially after the spot where the bearings ride on - may this diff carry the bigger thrust screw and 8x3mm bearing?

Also, what about the material of the crown/bevel gear?

I have main gears in both, black and white - the white one is a bit stiffer whereas the black one is a bit "nylonish"
But the black bevel gears are already very stiff...

I hope someone can shed some light onto this

Tim sent me a printable setup sheet. If anyone wants a copy send me an email with your email address and what you want.
