Default >>>>>>>>>>>>avid<<<<<<<<<<<

ran the Avid today on med/high bite rubber 13.5 car ran well the only thing was it was a foam tire race and with a 1way well didn't work very well so I ran it on rubber Qul 5th on rubber everyone else ran foam Drew Ellis was super fast as all ways I did learn a lot as far as droop and high bite ie next to none and soft springs I spent most of the day jacking with my stallion breaking part after part due to only haveing a spool "not good "....the avid was fast but didnt have the turn in as the foam cars but o well i feel when the foam car does come out it will be fast or as good as a 007 ...1 weak point is the dog bones or i got a bad 1 because it bent after every run only the left frt ..cant wait for the parts to come in .... i will post my setup 2 mar..

After my third run with the car in finding a decent setup it is just as fast as my '007 Euro was in stock rubber. I did manage to bend my left front CVD too. Bad enough where it binds hard on the C-hub even when I'm driving straight.

Looks like I'll be waiting for spare parts. The X-ray parts do swap over if you take the whole side and stick it on but the track width is lot skinnier.

Why is it that all cvd drive shafts in these rc cars run the drive pins at 90deg. from each other.Mip and anything else powered by a shaft are at 180deg.?Think about it.trying mine out tuesday.

you guys should see if the fk05 cvd's will fit on the avid axles. Spring steel is much sronger than the alumn. Just a thought.....

Raced the car tonite 19turn oval.Car ran smooth till i put to much traction compound up front.It was the quickest car there.Would have been better with a front diff. I thing It sold its self to an other fellow racer and received compliments how well it looked to handle from some others. racing got too rough 2 slower cars all over the place(no parts) so parked it and took out the old tank.

I ended up moving to the front position on the knuckles, put the 3 degree toe-in in the back, and put the thicker shim under the front-rear block. We have a fairly tight track setup up here and those changes seem to "wake up" the car a little and give me alot more of what I was looking for.

Only raised up the rear part of the front roll center. It gave me more initial steering.

DO they fit good on the C-hub side though????I put my X-ray one-way diff outdrives in mine and they fit fine in the Avid one-way bearings.
