It's only a 12v fan unfortunatly so doesn't really spin fast enough, I got it from Maplin. I need to find somewhere to get one the same size but 5v, then it will be much more effective.

My 19turn motor isn't exactly slow There were plenty of V2 endbell 19's around today and other than the guy who won, I wasn't loosing any speed to anyone, although maybe a touch on acceleration from the slow corners, but for a year old motor it was hanging in very well
Only one round to go for the outdoor SMTCA championship so no new motors for that. Just new brushes if I decide to travel to Stonehaven.....

Hi again.
I was wondering if anyone could help me, but the drive train on my R2 seems a tad noisy. I know that recently someone asked a similar thing, and JDM_DOHC_SiR said to look around 60 pages back. I did have a look, but couldn't find it. Can anyone give us a hand??

Cheers
Crashmaster

Congrats Pete I"m glad the body was working for you... BTW was it easy to see..?? Need another

Need some advice on my little problem i have with my Rear Toe In

I have on my left side 3 and on my right sight 2 Toe In => so far not to bad but:

Im using already the uncentered ball studs: on the left ajusted to have the Min. Toe In and on the right to have the Max Toe In
I have put new suspension Arms, new rear hub carrier in to see if any of these are bend or damaged, but still the same difference in the left and right side

Any ideas ?

thanks

Ive had the same problem with mine with the offset and none offset ball studs. I think it might be the Integy tool since that what Ive been using.

I read some posts further back on here with people mentioning a New R4 version in the works. What is the scoop on this and how far along is it? Will it be available before the end of this year or not till next? Any info is appreciated, thanks.

The Integy tool seems to be off about +~- .5 deg ..or so ... not something to worry about.. but what I do in the Rear of the Car when using the offset balls is I only use 2 of them vice 4 of them in the rear and I leave the adjustable ones in the back with the standard black ones up in the front of the Rear a-arm
