Put the ounce of weight under the bulkhead/tranny brace b/w the bulkhead and tranny. You have to use the AE weights b/c they're square, rectangular ones won't fit. WHen you put the screws back in it will hold the weights in place. You'll also hev to use a slightly shorter screw since the stock ones extend all the way through the brace and hit the weights.

Putting in my 12 Turn Hand Wound Corally motor in my T4, along with my new 2.4Ghz Futaba 3PM radio. Going to be running it this weekend. Will let you know how it goes.

What am I doing wrong?

I am not a newbie at this. Just put in my new Futaba 3PM 2.4Ghz radio, New HFX ESC and used Corally 12 turn motor into my T4.

It is running backwards.

The motor has a plus sign on the brush assembly. The red wire is connected to that side. The blue wire is connected to the opposite. My battery connector has the red side spliced into the red wire from the ESC. The black wire from the battery connector is attached to the black end of the wire from the ESC. Red to Red Black to Black.

I didn't try servo reversing because that wouldn't make sense.

Do I ignore that markings on the motor, and just switch the leads? Is there a put a motor together wrong so that it runs backwards? I matched it up with the markings that were on the can.

Thanks

It sounds like your motor is 180* out.

When you started using your new radio did you go thru the whole programming sequence with your speedo? You need to reprogram when you switch to a different radio.

If you had it apart you could've put it together 180* backwards. Just rotate the endbell 180 and should be fine.

you also might have the throttle set to reverse in your radio settings

Those who picked 180 degrees off, were right! Thank you very much. It runs perfect now!

Look forward to racing this Sunday afternoon! Got new tires Gladiator and Edge tires, and I am ready to RUMBLE!

OK, what is the cure from going from stupid amount of oversteer to stupid amounts of understeer?

Previously I was running Hole Shot "T" or Evil Twin rear tires and the rear would rear tires would lose grip and the back end would over pivot and the truck would oversteer.

Now with Gladiators, have great traction, but it pushes and plows.

The front tires in both cases were Edge.

Can I do something with the front springs?

Sounds like still a tire problem
First had to little traction, now have to much.

Where are your rear hubs at? Try moving all the spacers in front of the hub to lenthen the wheelbase. Or could try a stiffer rear spring, or put the top of the rear shock in the outer holes and see how it feels. If that doesn't work you could try a softer front spring. What antisquat are you running? Try more. Posting your full setup would help.

Rear hub position, shock angles, antisquat would be the first things I would try. Basically I suppose just go out and change something in the rear one thing at a time and run some laps to see how it feels. If you run out of things in the rear to change, then try changing some in the front.

I don't want to sound like a jerk, but lets take a look here.

http://www.prolineracing.com/products/images/8170.jpg Understeering.

This is a traction use, too little at first. Now to much. My only question is "Why gladiators?". At the plex where I race we use step-pins http://www.prolineracing.com/products/images/8097.jpg or lugnuts http://www.prolineracing.com/products/images/8200.jpg, something in that range.
