Anyone have a set or know of a lhs that has a set of the scte/ten/810 adjustable hinge pin holders, I'm looking for a front and rear set, but will take just the front if I can find it in stock. I've checked all my normal hits and nobody has these back in stock yet.

losb4112, losb4113

Thanks!

OK...went through the endpoint and travel adjustments on my DX2S and savox 1258.
I have the travel set at 88% and the steering rate at 88%. Steering expo is set at +25%, subtrim R2.

Noise stops from servo at 88%. Do these sound ok or am I missing something?

Is your servo & steering too fast? I've never experienced this with a 4wd vehicle. I don't typically ever mess w/ my expo unless I'm not doing well on the track do to conditions and want a quick fix in stead of tweaking my setup. Who knows though maybe I'm not using it to the fullest potential.

Typically I set my end points close.. then set the subtrim to what is needed (never use trim unless in a bind on the track in a race).. then I go back and tweak my end points again and fine tune.

I never mess with expo or rates on my steering, but the endpoints will vary by radio and by little differences in your steering linkages from setup to setup, but if the travel setting is set to give you full throw without the servo stalling against the end of available throw in the car (buzzing stopping is one way to tell) then you should be good.

They are doing something wrong. The only motor I have spent much time with in this particular car is the castle 1410. I gear it 14-16 depending on the track and I'm not even going to bother to temp it any more. It was consistently coming off the track at around 100-110 and the 110 was yesterday with temps in the 80's and I was HARD on the throttle. Much harder than I normally drive, but I got a horrible start in my 10 minute main and was charging hard the whole race to catch up. This was on a very tacky, slightly damp 1/8 scale track.

By the way this motor was in my losi and the winning durango (sorry guys I got a horrible start but battled back for third place after starting dead last after a pileup in the first turn) in round one of the North Carolina Championship Series main event. I have been so happy with this motor that I just bought two more off ebay. I guess I'm set now, so just go search on ebay. $59 and the guy will have it to you in just a couple days.

Default help? please

hello guys a friend of mine has a mmp sct system W/2400kv in his losi 4x4 and he says that he has no top end w/2s lipo (it's realy slow) are there other spur gears available or should he use a big pinion like a 20t??? i think he has a 14t in it now. THANKS

Get 18, 19, 20t pinions for it. It'll be better but I was never happy with the top end of the system on 2s.

If he wants more top end than a 20t can offer, tell him to get the EliteRCD.com motor mount. It can take up to a 26t.

really the wrong motor for a large track or somewhere you want a lot of top speed on 2s. That kv is best used on 3s lipo setups. You can gear it up due to the crazy torque it has.. 20t is as big as the stock motor mount will accept, and I would just get the 20t. With the elite motor mount you can push more from what I've heard 21,22t.

Have your bud pickup a Castle 3800kv 1410 motor or the tenshock 4000kv motor, also good from what I hear. I have castle for my primary and it's great, but I did order a tenshock for my backup.. let me just tell you shipping is slow so upgrade shipping or be patient

He'll have to gear up, I suggest using a bigger pinion. But either way, on 2s a 2400kv is gonna be slow on the top end. That motor needs another cell added to his lipo to wake it up. On 3s, it'll give him all the motor he needs, but on 2s, probably not so much. The 4-pole 1410 guys are running the 3800kv motor and seem very happy with it. The 1415 motor guys seem like they need to be on 3s. Us 1/8th scale motor guys (I'm running a MMM 2650 combo) need to be on 3s also, otherwise we also suffer from Notopendatall. Notopendatall luckily is a very curable disease afflicting us lower KV motor owners, the simple cure is to run a 3s battery in place of the 2s. Once adding the 3s battery, strap it in securely, pull trigger. Only side-effects known from the 3s cure is Permasmile. Permasmile isn't too bad, certainly better than Notopendatall, but Permasmile will sometimes have your friends wondering if you've been smoking the wacky tobaccy or something

The elite mount will accomodate up to a 25 or 26t pinion. A 23 with the 1415 will have a similar top end to a 4.5 and run way cooler and more torque. I love my 1410 though. You can gear it up to blow the doors off a 4.5 with no fear of over heating.

i fly 40% rc planes running 3 servos per wing half.we have to match each servo to the others.
the meter listed in this link allows you to check current/votage readings to see if you are binding thru the travel and end points.
i use it on all my rc cars .this way you know exactly when you are at the end of travel.also will show if the servo is having faults.

very easy to use,just hook the leads inline with the servo being tested.

I would tend to agree with this, BUT, I know these guys personally and they are FAST, and know their stuff. The 550's, if you have them geared to be competitive, simply have heat issues outdoors in the hands of great drivers who on "on it". I know many on here claim otherwise, but it's just not the case when I'm here watching these guys


I do agree though, the 4-pole motors are the way to go in these heavier trucks. The castle 1410 is the only motor I dont think they have tried, they really like to have the smoothness and consistency of a sensored motor. The guys mentioned above all have their Losi's for sale...ditching them for the lighter AE. I'm keeping the Losi, so it should be a fun summer dicing it up with these guys Hopefully I don't melt down in the process

I run the 1415 w/ 20t pinion. It's not that bad...top end wise.
