Default Help~

Which is better shock setup for Rayspeed? Long shock body or short shock body with long shock end? Does it matters?

If I use long shock body, do I have to use longer shock shaft? Or they are the same?

Shock shafts are the same.

I seem to be having a problem with glithcing with my SD. I just got it and used my stuff from one of my other cars, using the Novak xtl-less system, and runnning stock. I first had the receiver mounted to the inside with the speedo to the outside on the lower deck. Was glitching bad. Moved the receiver to the top deck, changed motor, bla bla bla. I could never get the glitch out. I have never had this problem with any of my other cars or electrics. Had the receiver wire in fuel tubing to protect against any rubbing on the graphite.

What are you guys doing to prevent glitching, or is this my own personal issue.

thanks

I started building the kit and it's going very smoothly. Only thing I had to do so far is take out one of the three shims for the front dif housing cause it was a little too tight and binding the bearings. This normal?

Post a quick ?

can someone direct me to the page that shows how to rotate the steering servo? aside from space, will it steer better? i've held off doing this, and i just got a new black chassis, so i thought i'd do the mod while i'm transferring everything over to the new chassis.

thanks,
herb

lonestar - The Rayspeed steering setup is best used only on the Rayspeed chassis, which has slightly different mounting points. It will probably fit on the SSG, but the geometry will not be as intended.

IMIURU - I too have had glitching problems on the SSG (gut feeling is that all those aluminium strands cause problems). By soldering an extra set of capacitors on my motor (Monster Stock) they're gone - the new Trinity/Epic cap board stinks.

John Fontaine - most people find the standard shimming a bit tight, but it's probably best to break the gears in with the full shimming, before making adjustments. I run 2 shims on the input shaft, but it still turns with 3.

You can have good pictures here (in french soon to be translated in english)

And yes it will steer better, mostly in left hand turns.

Ok, I got everything to fit with 3, but it just seems like it's binding. Maybe it will be fine after it breaks in. I'll put the third shim back in. Thanks for the info.

Hi Guys,

Just a quick note, I apologize for the error on the Tobee Craft section. We have more parts in stock than the website originally shown (I updated the webpage just right now) so the page now reflects our inventory status. Sorry about that guys.

Steve Wang

It's normal to have to do that John, did you happen to lightly sand the faces of the gears before you assembled the gearbox? The shims make the gear mesh adjustable, I usually set the gear mesh like I would on a 48 pitch car. That's a bit tight, but that is also for modified, if you run stock, you can put a little more play in it, and it'll free up the transmission a bit. I got very lucky on my graphite gearboxes, the mold was perfect, and the stock shimming was perfect as well, once I break in the drivetrain for a few hours, it should be very free
