Car was very good all day, and very very fast too

I will post here soon as I have posted the set up, just a few things need measuring.

I'm sure you will have better luck next time mate. When's the next time?
this Saturday Dec 2nd. I have a couple of things I'd like to try on the car so I'll be out testing and hope to put a good couple of runs in so that by qualifying everything is good to go. It was really nice to be able to run with my buddy Aaron Young. He's been whippin' on everyone for a long time know and my first time out showed me what this car can do.

Are you running carpet or asphalt right now?

Another win in Stock for me at the Edmonton leg of the WCICS series race. In fact, Xray swept all the TC classes. Wayne Mah in Mod and Dwayne Flodel in 19T. My 007 was perfect and made up for my average driving.

And now the shameless plug!
Thanks Xray Canada for a wicked car, the T2 007 aka: The Bond Car
Thanks SMC for the Punch
Thanks Apex Racing for the RPM
Thanks Jaco for the best grip
Thanks Futaba for the control
Thanks PM Hobby for putting up with me

carpet up until March or April. Car is awesome. Paul L. set up is killer. A few changes to adapt to the traction and I was dialed. More testing will be done the next time out.

did anyone find you had to make you servo link arm much shorter in the new car, mine is as short as it can be to get the proper alignment (90 degree) between the servo arm and the servo link

I am using a KO 9343 servo.

Oh and i have the servo saver in the rear position, with the nub on the bearing carrier forward as per the stock setup in the manual.

*ALSO does anyone know if the setup sheets reflect the nub on the bearing carrier or the location of the servo saver on the setup sheets.

Thanks

Yes this is correct per the manual. I didn't discover it until a couple of days later after building the car as I just got the kit and built it from experience. Moral of the story: Always read the manual or at least skim through it.

It references the actual post position.

Thanks, but in the manual states it should be approx 49mm, which was the same as the t2 if i am correct. But on my 007 i think my link is closer to 46mm, does that sound about right...

I'm not sure on the numbers, the important step it to ensure the horn is at 90* and then use a setup station to make the correct adjustments to help the car track straight.

hey guys,

just wanted to post a pic of the new 007 chassis kit that i am going into production with.it is a 3mm chassis and front and rear top decks.i pocketed the chassis down to 2.5mm and added extra pocketing under the arms so you can have more roll center adjustment and droop adjustment.all of the edges of the chassis are beveled and the battery slots are also beveled eliminating all hand work.the kit is alot more rigid than the stock chassis.hope you like it.
