Default Need some help here...new car setup :)

Hello there, i have just built a Cyclone S.. i am looking for instructions for setting up this car .. eg: Steering adjustments, motor run in procedures, any tips on this car much appreciated, i have scanned the posts but everything is very hi tech, i just need the standard set up info please.

Take the no. of teeth of the spur gear (plastic) divide by the pinion gear(metal) and times the internal gear ratio...

See what's the best combo thats nears the 7.00 gearingyou want.

Running in motor in water is a little ol'school, using used for silver can motors.

Just run in your motor, using 2 volts till the whole face of the brush contacts the commutator.
