In the Eu rubber 6 cell chassis,

both Orion packs (3200 & 3600) fit just fine. You just need to remove the cell holders and slide the battery in . I taped the battery and still use the battery hold down for added weight.

hi all... is there a way to get rid of steering chatter with a front spool? ive turn the epa down as much as it takes to stop the chatter... but it seems not enough steering?

i run on asphalt in the uk... on a tight track with in winter low to medium grip buh in summer very high grip.

could i run a fixed one-way maybe? or a normal one-way? without it swapping ends wiv going into the corners?

thanks jordan

P.S...THIS IS ON THE STANDARD T2'007

It is very important that the front drive shafts are regularly serviced. When the grease is gone it may still feel free on the bench, but while driving they will heat up and bind up which partially accounts for the chatter. If you are willing to service them every four runs or so you can use bearing oil instead of grease. This will work better but last shorter and also cause more wear.

Other than the axles, make sure the blades are regularly replaced. Also consider running less Ackerman if you can find a good setup with it. In my experience more Ackerman also causes more chatter. Finally someone posted a tip a while back to (not sure which website it was) to sand the edges of the wheel axles so the t-bone piece can just make a slightly bigger angle.

Hope any of the above works out for you.

Hi Guys

Ran my EU 6 cell 008 for the first time on Thursday whith brushless 10.5 and it was waaaaaay loose both off and on power when using the kit carpet rubber setup. Really fast but not able to turn in a consistent lap time on a big track with long straight but with some tight hairpin corners.
Any suggestions as to what to do first? Got a big race tomorrow and want to get it sorted!

Thanks in advance

Hi Mutley,

A few of the UK team drivers have been really happy with their cars on carpet. The 2 big changes that we have made from the kit set up is going from 1.6/1.4mm roll bars to 1.4/1.2mm roll bars, just to soften the car up and give it a bit of roll. With the kit set up it stays very flat.

We also always run 1mm shims on the front and rear hubs and raise the camber link up 1 hole all round. This makes the car much easier to drive.

They are the 2 things I'd definitely suggest trying first.

Hope this helps
Jonny

Thanks Jonny, might have to wait to give the roll bars a try as I haven't got any others yet but will certainly try the roll centre chnges.

Thanks

Paul

Will also be running my 008 at Carpet Wars tomorrow.
Will try some changes but need to get different roll bars and
waiting on XRay to bring out the other springs for the car.
