Here is my new ride!!!





I used Paul L. weight balancing guide to setup my car and it needed 35grams in the front right of the chassis to balance it out (with ib4200wce 6 cell pack)

I will post more pics as I am changing the esc (from MRT to KO VFS-1 Pro Comp Version 2) and also might change the servo to a Futaba 9550 to see how different the car 'feels' with a lighter front end (ie. lighter servo and I assume not as much lead balancing weight on the front).

Car feels great on the track, used the basic kit setup and slowly over the last couple of days (about 12 hours trackside) made changes accordingly to suit. Very impressed so far!!!


Electronics used are:

ESC: MRT MX Pro
Receiver: Spektrum Micro Rx
Servo: JR 8715 Digital (high speed and torque)
AMB PT
Motor: Checkpoint with custom 9x1 4mm armature with MuchMore Standoffs and cooling fan (25mm) and MuchMore 5amp Shotky Diode


Leonard.

I see a lot of setups with weight on the right side, I just got the hudy tool and my car is off on the left side, is it everyone else's servo? I run the 9550, but I need a stock armature's worth of weight on the left side. I tried to buy lead weight at the parts store, but the didn't have it, the xray stuff seems pricey imo.

Thanks for the props Wallstreet. I can't take credit though. All my bodies are painted by a guy in Melbourne, Australia - Matt Wildner aka "Maverick" is his name on RC Tech and here is a link to his thread....

Great paint jobs, and great prices too!!!

sukh, I think the focus problems with your first (and to a lesser extent third) pic could be solved by putting the camera in 'macro' mode. This is usually an icon of a flower.

I won't be at the Magma race...although there will be a strong contingent of guys from my local track...

I should definitely be at the Cdn Challenge though.

I gradually tighten my diffs over the course of a pack or two after rebuild to slowly seat the ball in place. I try to avoid cranking them down tight too quickly to avoid dimpling the rings.

With the ease of which the diffs can be adjusted, it makes it easy to do a slow lap (making sure to get a nice amount of both left and right turns to get the diff action working), bring the car in, tighten it a little and go back out to continue running through the battery pack.

Unfortunately I know of no guideline to 'tighten diff x number of turns' to set it initially...I just use the prior mentioned method and continue until it no longer slips and they give me the handling characteristics that the track requires.
