I think delrin would break fairly easy if used for a spool... There is a lot of stress put on that piece.

I vote Steel. An Aluminium one would remind me of using an IRS TC3 one without pin cushions..... would only last one run.

That's why I suggest steel outdrives, and an aluminum base...

When I raced with Baker at the Tulsa Invite I believe he was running a steel spool in his car...he said it has lasted forever and worked great.

Thanks for the update...keep up the good work!

Jeff

Default novak brushless

Hi,

Anyone got a pic of a SD with novak brushless mounted ?

Need reference on the mounting. SD is very tight on
electronics space.

I havent seen it done on a SD, but I did it on a R2. Basically just mount the reciever on top of the servo, and you'll be fine with space. It's easy to figure out once you put the parts together...

Kilruf had the brushless setup on one of his SD's. Check out around page 108.

Default suspension help

Ok, heres's the problem.....i just finished building my SD with the RS ultimate conversion and can't get the ride height set. i'm not understand what's happening here. on the setup for the RS chasis it says to use the SS shocks and make the front 64mm and the rear 66mm using the short shock end. i can;t seem to make a shock that long using the short shock ends. if i do it's only hanging on by a couple of turns on the treads. So anyway i end up with a car that sits at 6mm in the front and 5.5mm in the rear. so what's the difference between the SS and SSS shocks?

Hey Hank! Catch ya tomorrow!

Trick... SS are longer than SSS. SSS are the ones that come with the kit. RS Chassis setups use SS shock bodies. If you want to use SSS shock bodies you need to use the long shock ends. Here is a pic of the difference in size of SS and SSS.

Also check to make sure you are running the hinge pin in the lower hole of the castor blocks.
