About the spools.

I have been under the same problem, last nacional championship race I had to tight it every final.

I believe I must change the plastic parts and try again. The feeling i have is that if I hold the left wheel and the pulley and turn on the right wheel this will tight it, but that means that under braking turning to the left it will make the spool loose.

I will let you kown if I can go over this.

I don't think that is a good way to tighten it. I stick a flat blade screw driver in the slot of the diff screw and tighten it that way. The way you discribed probably is not getting it tight enough.

Ya your not really tightening it at all. that is just making the pulley slip. You have to hold the screw to tighten it properly.

If you replace the hub and tighten it well maybe even a little threadlock and your good to go for a long time.

Hi guys!

I've made a little shield to give a bit more protection to the esc. It's made out of a .030" lexan sheet.







Bye!

Whats the best ball cups to use as I find the standard ones pop off a little too easy.

Thanks

I am using RPM's they work pretty well and are readilty avaliable, you just have to shorten them a little bit to run the shorter link holes.

I just purchased a Type R and I will be running an LRP 17.5 brushless. I will be running on a medium sized carpet track with foam tires. Any recommendations on gearing and what size spur and pinion to purchase that will equal that ratio?

Thanks,
Ty

I'm not sure if this will help but I run rubber on asphalt and I was told to use a 104 spur and a pinion in the mid 50's
