Hey guys, just a quick FYI.... I bought one of the new Novak Ballistic based motors for my Type-Arrrrrrrr and wanted to share some pics. First pic is of the space between the motor and the inner hinge pin mount, practically a nautical mile in there.



Second pic is of the solder tabs which come bent at a 90-deg angle. Since they are further inboard than other motors, they will contact the bulkheads on our Type-Rs. I disassembled the motor to get a good hold of the tabs to bend them up out of the way, but after seeing the thickness of the tabs (very) you can probably just bend them without disassembly.

Hey Greg

I bought a same motor for the regional at Blue Diamond and made a post about it on my blog before, I had to do 2 things for the motor
http://dajohnwee.blogspot.com/2009/09/novak-ballistic-motor-just-arrived.html

1: made a sensor wire guide outta Lexan piece to keep the wire off the pulley

2: Dremel the tabs to keep em away from the bulkhead, I thought about bending flat but IMO once the metal is bent and unbent it gtes weaker and also I like to keep that tabs in 90deg angles to keep their own strength and ease of slodering

thats my 2cents, 1cent on each haha

I finally got a chance to run my Type R on carpet tonight. Just doing some timed practice. The car was really good! The same setup I was using on asphalt that understeered badly had pretty good balance on our fresh carpet. I did a bunch of back to back testing against my Xray T'007. The Losi was faster by about 0.3sec. The way you drive the two cars is a bit different and feel of them on the track is very different. The Losi is ultra sensitive off centre right now, which was a bit tough to get used too, but the corner speed was good as was the balance. I'm using the steel lipo tray, so the car is absurdly crazy rigid, which seemed to be fine. This was my first run with the two cars on carpet, so I'll see how things go through the course of the season, but so far the Losi is looking good!

Hi guys,

Just got my flying fox layshaft and spool. Also got some RW spurs to go along.

I did have to sand down the layshaft a little bit because the bearings would not slide over it. But after i did this i polished it up again with alu polish and now it shines like a mirror.

Will test everything this weekend in a race but wanted to share some pictures with you already.

Ignores the top deck in the pictures.
You can use the original top deck but you need to raise it of 6 mm
You could try without any modifies

6mm is a lot, and its going to change the way the car flexes. Your pics are how I had laid it out to see how it all lined up.

So in the end how does the car respond? Twitchy? I have a sheet of delrin left from some crawling projects, maybe I'll make a mock upper deck out of that and see what happens...
