Timmy,

go to www.yokom.tk and look at Chris Tosolini's most current carpet setup. It requires so part modification but is well worth it.

Default CGM bellcrank question

Hello! I have seen guys replacing the belcrank part that connects to the servo and replacing them with ball cups and installing the servo on top but on the other side of the bellcrank assembly.
http://www.cmldistribution.co.uk/art...ger_cgm_04.jpg

QUESTION:
does it has lesser slop? my stock bellcrank now, is developing slop and I was wondering if it will be worth it to change to that set up?
What are the parts that I will be needing? and how long should the turnbuckles be?

Thanks a mil!

Lem



Off Topic: are there any Electric On-Road tracks or if the hobby exists in North Carolina?
If not, what is the nearest in hours of driving time? Thanks.

The main benefit of that steering mod is to be able to alter the ackermann angle by lengthening or shortening the center turnbuckle. I didn't really feel that it had more or less slop than the stock setup.
The ROAR onroad nationals were in n. carolina a year or two ago I believe. I don't remember the name of the track but there's at least one there for you.

Thanks again Matt! It's funny cause the basis for me accepting a job is if there will be an RC track nearby at least 50mi maximum!

I saw 12 on road course in the track location finder!!
Is that weird? Or maybe plain crazy--I call it adiction!

I'm over here until august so there's no chance of me making that race. It's good to see that family hobbies is still running, best....offroad track....ever. One of the bases that might be open to me is Mcguire again so who knows, I might end up back on the east coast.

That would be cool. The racing scene here is getting super competetive. Cuffs and Schreff have this place on lockdown in stock. I dont see them get beat very often. Its a great place to be if you are a racer.

Yeah I saw that little Jeffy got fast after I left, who knew that he'd turn into one of the best stock carpet racers in the nation?
