hi!!!

where can I get machine screws for the microRS4??

the ones that came with the kit are tapping screws.

I need the machine screws for the jet motor pod, it does not have any screw in the packet.

Default Need help with my Micro!

Any suggestions on how to first charge my Team Orion 7.2 volt? What amp should I charge it for the first time and ect?

Any one recommend deans Micro conectors?

Should I file a flat spot the shaft of my my Micro elite mod to keep the pinion gear from falling off?

Any good clean ideas on how to make a belt tentioner?

Are the aluminum upper arms any good to buy?

Did anyone like the bump steer plate by HPI?

Its almost complete, I'll post some pics when I done.

I'm not a battery genius, so I don't know what to tell you about the orion batt. I charge mine at 1-1.5 a with a delta peak of 10mv.
The micro dean's are great, we just got some more in today.
Yes, file a small flat spot on the motor for the pinion to bite into.
I saw pics of a homemade belt tensioner somwhere, but I can't seem to find it. Try a search on the forums at:
your micro
I have yet to see any reason to buy aluminum upper arms.
Are you talking about the HPI tie-rod set??? That's a great product, it should have been included with the kit, those steering racks suck.

I do 3 cycles of charge-discharge at 1A-3A respectively.

I use ultra deans ( normal size)

The micro elite is a strong motor, shouldn't have used the plastic pinion. Go for metal ones, as recommended by TO.

Nope, for me I even take them out. I found it much smoother.

what is some good flexible wire? I like Wet Noodle by Deans, but I can't get it in a smaller gauge.

Also with the medal pinions do I need to file a groove on the motor shaft?

I'm not sure if using the noodle is a bit overkill...anyway I use GS, same gauge

Nay, you don't need to file anything on the shaft. The Team Orion Metal gear comes with an Allen wrench to tighten the set screw.

Durrrr!!

Of course it comes with a Set screw Other wise it wouldn't stay on at all.

The Flat spot on the shaft will give a more secure mounting grip on the shaft and will prevent it from spinning which in turn cause the set screw to loosen over time.

I did it I recommend it.

On these little motors granted it don't have to be done but why not. Not like it's a hard thing to do.

never had a metal gear spun out due to (loose??) set screw on a TO mod before....anyway I suppose groove would be better if u have spare time to do it.

GTO, I was just bustin balls don't take it to heart.

Like I said on these little motors I don't think it makes much of a difference but, it can only help. Takes all of 3 seconds to grind a little flat spot so why not YA know what I mean.
