Default Technical question.

Okay-I need to know how to set-up the steering on the Demon1 with the NTC3 rack-but using LOSI spindles and carriers. I know the carriers dont matter-but the Losi steering blocks on the TC3 are stronger and last longer because they dont strip the threads after one dissasembly.

When I run them on the stock steering rack-I shim the ballstud forward. Feels the same on the track to me.

What do i do on the NTC3 rack? I want the car to retain the same ackermann as using the AE blocks.

Thanks,
Ray


On a side note-when I ran the Losi Steering blocks on the stock rack-the car just felt horribly unbalanced in steering. Just in case someone is thinking of running them without adjusting the steering links. DONT!

UPS found my shipment and I recieved my Warpspeed diff housings last night, no D2 chassis in the box... I have to say those are some very slick cases, very well made and with cleaned out bearings and a blueprinted drivetrain I found the recipe for butter The Helicoil inserts work better then I expected, clean easy install of screw sets makes for a fast and easy assembly with little or no worry of the plastic. The bearing journals were cleaned perfectly and the drivetrain spins freely now. Very pleased and very much looking forward to my D2 arriving any day now

Ray, I think your s*** out of luck with changing the ackerman on the NTC3 steering rack...lolJK. That's a good question. Maybe the D2 should come with 2 holes on the chassis for altering the ackerman by moving the steering posts.

Well-its no biggie-I have had one failure of the stock rack in 4 years or so-so If I have to keep running the stock rack-or run the stock AE steering spindles with the NTC3-its all cool with me.

I don't know why people make such a big deal about the stock rack. Just clean it every few weeks and it's fine. Take a Q-tip...spray some motor spray on it...move the rack to one side...clean it with the Qtip, then move it to the other side and clean it. Takes 30 seconds. I've only had problems with the stock rack once and that was because I went 6 months without cleaning it

Ray, I run Losi knuckles and the NTC3 rack, there's nothing special you need to do. It is smoother and much easier to maintain.

I plan on using the Lossi Knuckles and will try both, the nitro and stock rack.

I know Howard just started using the nitro rack and his car looked very smooth last week!

PEACE....

Hey, John. If you're getting a Warp, use the Nitro rack. It's very easy to install. I don't think it's worth the trouble on the stock tub though
