mike.. are you running ceramics? btw. you going to rcheat?
I keep wanting to get some but still haven't. I don't really run stock anymore so I've been putting the bearings last on the priority list. Want to get them for Reedy though
RCheat is a definite MAYBE! Guess you kept your legs and arms attached after boarding? Hope to see ya at the track.

A picture with your post, when trouble shooting, will probably get more rctech help than without...

Accually, I wished I would have went ahead and ordered those ceramics, after ordering what I did...oh well, live and learn.

I am running Rc4less too, very smooth. They are higher grade than Acer if I'm not wrong.

Hi Guys,

As for ceramic bearings, I'm working on them and should be available next month.

back in dec of last year... we had a race.. and it started to rain.. my car (at the time i had an R2) was wicked fast. nothing was damaged, no electronics were fried. the only thing that got damaged was the body. the diffs were fine and weren't damaged at all. since i was running slicks.. im assuming it didnt kick up as much water as threaded tires tho.

of course, i wont do that again. if your gonna run in the rain, run the diff cases and throw your electronics in a balloon or something to protect them from the rain.

Or buy a nice high quality M-Troniks Cirrus ESC and M-Troniks Pegasus Reciever which are both 100% waterproof and come in a nice blue
Running in the wet is fun just have to get the tyres right, either Pit Schumizu D20's 20mm or 24mm treaded, or depending on conditions Take Off CS22's can work well It's weird but when there was a lot of standing water the CS22's worked very well, they don't do so well when it's just damp and greasey though, then you need D20's.
The only bit I don't like about wet weather racing is the clean up afterwards. You have to strip the car and clean the bearings the same day otherwise you'll have nice bits of orange rust on your car

I really wanted to run in the rain at Charlies Toys for Tots race, unfortunately I must have been the only person who felt that way because everyone else wanted the race posponed

Hi All,

I'm going to try out the locked diff on my R2 - Anyone has any tips on any set up changes? Springs, roll bars etc

I am currently using the stock set up with one way diff.

Thanks

Check out the Reedy race setup on the Alex USA site, that should be pretty good to start with.
