Good call on the screw-- that will be my first place ill look. Im betting its that, actually.

The arm/reamer.. dont think thats necessary, at least with the arms I have, they have a very nice tolerance...


Thanks guys-

Keith

Hey all.

Ive not heard any mention of belt tension on this car.
Is there an ideal?
As loose as possible without rubbing or skipping or is there an advantage to going tighter?

Dave.

Keith,
I am pretty sure this is the one he used as a starting point most of the time,this or his Las Vegas set-up. His computer quit so I'll call and make sure.

Thanks Ted, Hows life going? Been a while.

I just discovered that forum and all the setup sheets.. for some reason i didnt see that until 5 min ago.. thank you though!

I think i may have found the issue with the front arms. I DL'd the manual and was looking it over. It seems that there are marks on all of the suspension blocks according to the manual== little dimples... Or at least it seems. I just glanced at it..

Looking at the car, he has blocks without dimples on the back of the front arms.. blocks with dimples everywhere else. Can someone confirm that this is appropriate? I am going to look over the manual in depth after breakfast.

Need to get some bearings as well...

Keith

There are 3 sets of hinge pin holders with dots on them for each arm. They are -0.75 mm, 0 mm, and +0.75 mm offset. Dots low = -0.75 mm, dots in the center = 0 mm, dots at the top = +0.75 mm offset. Thus, no offset, and +/- 0.75 mm offset. This allows you to raise or lower the hinge pins from the stock 0 mm (no offset) setting.

Not sure about no dimple pin holders. Yes, there is one whole tree per arm, one set of each offset.

If your LHS doesn't have them, it looks like Ashford Hobby does.

Thanks for that.

Is there a trick to keep the arms from binding on the chassis in the low roll center position.?

Dave.

Thanks again Steve.
I,ll have to try it again as it was some time ago that I tried it to no avail.
Seemed like it was binding on the rear where the inner hinge pin housing meets the chassis.

Just want a little more roll for rubber.
Dave.

Oh .
I,m converting a foam version so no its the 3 mm chassis.
