I think we will see some AE Big bores in the Cactus race coming up. Hold out and lets see what AE comes out with.
We ran with Tebo last night. And my 60c where just as good as his 90c. But I do run a 6.5. Run a high down force wing on low bite tracks. Leave the cut out on the wing full. Don't cut it out and try longer camber links. 2 degree rear camber helps and if you want to go all the way? run zero anti squat, it improves side bite. Good luck on tires its a testing night mare on dry tracks but I have great results when ours is dry running super soft rebars.

After my very first ever run on dirt off road, I have to agree!! Plus the durability of this kit is outstanding!! I put it to the test last night that is for sure and I didn't break or bend a single part. :D

It was alot of fun last night and thanks for all the help. I learned alot about off road just watching the lines that you and Tebo were running. Now just need more wheel time! (and eventually more motor. :sneaky:)

You did pretty goid for a first timer. Just quit hunching that concrete wall...lol. I I wish I had that on vid. It passed the durable test thats for sure. And nothing like getting schooled by Tebo. I love practice nights. No pressure laps.

Fine. I was rocking the 2x with my 4x4. I mean we had to test how fast it was. And then he brought his 4x4 out and I let him practice passing for a big race. Gee try to help a fellow racer out....:rolleyes:

I am sporting the Punisher. It came with the kit and I like the vent options on it.
Its a lower profile if I'm right than the finisher?

I have a set of new v2 shocks still in the bags from my kit. how does 50.00 bucks plus shipping sound?

Actually UN did keep up with Tebo. For about one or two laps. The difference between club level racers and the pro's is that a pro driver can drive the same line over and over like a machine. There are about 3 guys in Kansas City that can do that. Unfortunately their lap times are always about .2 to .5 seconds slower than Tebo's.

He did mention I was looking smaller every lap. The man is smooth. He holds a pace like an oval racer. I am on the same lap but usually about 6 seconds slower. In his class of races that would put in the C or D. Man that's hard to imagine. :tire:

I just got my B44.1 yesterday, what are you guys running for batteries? I'm just curious what C rating/MAH I should get with a 7.5 motor? Thanks for any help you can give me.

I run a Revtech 7.5 w/Nano-Tech 5100 60c. They are great batteries. I can't tell you how much runtime since I usually don't run more than 10 minutes at a time.

I really have had great results out of my Reedy 5200's. I balance them before the race once each week. 10.5 down to the 5.5. flawless packs all winter so far.
It seems I saw something a newer pack coming to?

nhraman 03-17-2012 08:25 PM

Thanks guys, I ended up buying a couple Fantom 65c saddle packs. I run Fantom motors and batteries in all my other cars, so I figured I'd stick with them on this car as well.

KING_PALM 03-17-2012 10:36 PM

Kyosho Big bore Oils with yellow fronts and white rears.

I was told 35F 32 1/2R with the stock 5 hole pistons.

I am running the cav setup at west coast.

was runnning 27 1/2 in the front an 25 in the rear and it was kinda bouncy.

MatRE 03-18-2012 01:12 AM

This is my nephews which I put together for him.We took it for a spin today and he only run for 10min or so and he got a rock between the spur and pinion,guess what won lol.Ive ordered another spur,but seriously I cant keep doing this.Do they make a metal spur for it?Sorry couldnt post up a picture of his car which is just weird.

Cheers Mat.

Don't know of any? You should be able to hit the local hobby shop or track for any parts. Saves time from ordering by mail.

Bummer. If your bashing you may want to modify some sort of gear protector.

I would't do that. Its better the arm breaks than a kick up plate.:nod:

I'm building my 44.1 right now and I'm looking at the new LPR X-20 6.5 turn coming out and i have driven a few 44.1s this past weekend and 6.5 seemed to feel to best and the most common class so go with a 6.5

Mini8 Menace 03-18-2012 06:35 PM

DONT GO METAL SPUR

don't go metal spur it will melt with the pinion and will mess up the spur and pinion gear make them all burred up and if rocks get in there your screwed just a little one have you made sure you motor mount or plate to your motor mount the screws for them being loose they have a tendency to chew up your spur if everything isn't super tight and also spaced properly

I made up a cover either side of the spur gear,should keep the dirt out.I also noticed in another post that the older b4 has a cutout under the spur to let out those little rocks that might get stuck.

Tough Q. Run some weights for sure. Do you have any Rebar super soft? I would try the super soft hole shots to. The rebars have a taller pin and more spread out and more likely to grab cracks and pits in the surface and the stock proline insert would be my choice. And I would put at least four holes in the tires.

If I went to the counter to chase the tire insert combo.....
Stock white inserts with rebar super soft. I would put 4 holes in the wheel 1st. test it out. And if it felt I was on the right track I would add 1 hole at a time in the tires till it felt good. I have never ran more than 4 in the wheel and four in the tire.

Good luck. Tire testing and tuning sux and is costly.
