Robbie gtc is got a good point. Pretty sure AE is lighter than TLR but either way not a huge deal especially if your using another brand. I have heard PT oils are excellent.

PT is a good brand. I hate that not all brands use CST as their unit. Below is a pretty good chart I use.

Anyone running a longer steering link between the servo arm and bellcranks center link?
Essentially having your servo arm at 12 o'clock while having your bellcranks centered thus front wheels centered. Looks like some are doing so. Currently when my steering is centered my servo arm is at 1 o'clock (if looking at from the back side of the servo)

Yes, but for no other reason than, I'm a little OCD about those things

I myself am somewhat OCD as well, thus I am going to go with a longer steering link. With using the floating servo mount and default link length the servo arm is more like at 2:00 do to the floating servo mount locating the servo a tad more off center than the fixed servo posts. So making sure the bell cranks are straight thus the steering straight as well a longer link that has my servo arm at or close to noon should work perfa.

78t spur 29t or 28t (28 with 78 is just about as small as you can go in regards to using a 78t spur) Thus try not to use a beveled edge pinion when going 78/28 as a non be eked edge pinion will allow for meshing 28t pinion to 78t spur
Also you could go 80/28, 80t/29, 80/30 AE, RDRP, Jconcepts Silent Speed, Kimborough Spurs. Basically any Spurs gears that are a direct fit for AE B4 series. Keep in mind you can obtain a 7.0 FDR using 81, through 86t Spurs however 78-80t spurs I believe work better.

13.5 10th scale wheeler recommended FDR per most motors is 7.0, thus you can be up around 7.5 and a tad lower at 6.75.

Formula for FDR. Spur divided by pinion = answer. Multiply by the vehicles IGR (internal gear ratio) YZ4 IGR is 2.6. (Spur size divided by pinion size = X. X multiplied by IGR = FDR.

Novak has a recomended FDR Chart per different different brushes motor turns per different class vehicles.

I tested using 78/80/81/84 spur gears and found 84/31 to be the best for me with the slipper locked. I'm going to test 84/30 and add some end bell timing. I'm using the standard stack Reedy M3 @ 48 degrees currently.

I am using HobbyStar MOD 13.5. Crazy low price at $42 but don't let the price fool you. This line of motors are of super high quality, and not that it matters they look amazing. HSTAR has both stock 13.5 and Mod 13.5. Their mod is excellent with the 78t/29.

Check out their site as these motors are better than excelkent.

Hi,

Forgive my ignorance but how do you lock there slipper? Just by getting the spur nut Super tight? Do you remove the slipper spring?

Thanks
