We are stating the class soon. So we will all be doing some gearing testing soon, that’s part of the fun. Thank you for your help!!

42-45 timing and between 90-95 rollout, what you are looking for is in those numbers I'm sure.

M​y two kits have arrived 😍
Both will be set up the same initially but one spool one diff.

​​​​​​Locally we only run 13.5 but for bigger events I'll run mod and stock 😈

Time to get wrenching 🔧

What a stunning bit of kit, went together amazing!
Just a few niggly jobs remaining, cut the body posts, balance complete electrical set up and paint a new shell

Hi guys.
just wondering if anyone else has encounted a similar probably with the Ackerman with servos other than the Sanwa SRG. I'm running Futaba BLS671s I'm both cars

I'm having an issue where my full lock at 26° steering inside wheel my outside wheel is only 13° manual suggest that it should be around 14° with the same toe of .75 on kit servo shimming

*Solved Further information for those not running Sanwa SRG*

My futaba was 2.3mm difference in demensions to the sanwa reccomended. So I've since removed the kit 2mm servo shims and that has brought me closer inline to the kit specs

Myself getting hunted down by my buddy, both of us driving eclipse 3s in 13.5 stock at a local club race.
we are both running spools on a low/medium grip track working great.

I took TQ and 1st overall.

Loving this car!

did they spray the carpet? Or just a crazy groove?

It's 10-15 year old Prima GT in dying need of replacement. It's been ran in many events and track layouts in that time

Its a very strange grip

Default Sand and Seal carbon edges

Hi Everyone,

I am just getting back into 1/12 racing after many years away as a local track just opened close by. I will be racing the Eclipse 3 and current awaiting delivery. Curious to know if sanding and sealing the edges with CA is still being done for the carbon pieces.

Thanks

I think sanding/deburring is always a good thing, I do not like sharp edges on my car, wher I can cut my skin. The front down edge of the chassis I round off pretty much to avoid delamination from impacts on uneven features of the track. (This might depend on your track, we have issues on some tracks.)
"Sealing" with CA - i doubt this is beneficial. I do not think, that there are pores that need to be sealed. Some say it might even affect the chassis to tweak. All in all I have heard pro´s and con´s that both do not convince me.

Best regards, Erhard
