Just a guess but with 1S and the timing advance now I would start around that same rollout with profile7 on the SPX.

Thanks

Thanks EA!.

If you have time, here is the result from my best round last night. I am car number 5.

And the track..

P.S. - How is your son? It's been awhile since his birth - he must be getting big!
Hi. Thanks, Chase is doing really good. he loves Rc and cars in general, he is three now.
This is the easy way out but i beleive that it is all about practice and specifically as often as possible. I really beleive that if you raced once a week for a year or raced 52 days in a row you would be a better driver at the end of 52 days. at the end of 52 weeks you would be a better set up guy. the only other piece of advice that i have is to practice with a car that is too fast for you and train yourself to go slower and under control with a fast car, this way you are being forced to fluxuate your trigger and wheel much more to stay on line. this might teach you to beable to adjust your line. when i drive i am normally close to the line but that is only because as i am about to go off line i am able to correct my mistake before it couses me to be off line. thats what i think, Thanks.

Paul sorry not trying to jack your thread.
Are you coming to the Nats at Mimi's?? I'm planning for me and my son to go, He's running the 007 in 17.5 rubber tire and I'll run 1/12 something. Hopefully get a chance to meet you face to face.
Tim
Dont worry, Thanks for the info.

The 40 was probably to much. Thats about what I ran with 13.5 this past weekend on profile 8 of the speedo. The 16 guage wire is a little small for 10.5. You can probably feel the wires after a run and they will be hot. Ive felt this before as well.

By too fast do you mean a car that tends to oversteer or running with a faster motor?

Thanks for the advice - you've given me some encouragement to keep going hard.

By too fast i mean a car that has more power than is possible to put down, I use a 4.5 or 5turn with a 7.4v lipo and rubber tires, its WAY too fast but it causes you to constantly be doing a little something different to get around each lap. when I run 17.5 (motor testing) I basicly do the same thing each lap so it is really iether totally on or totally off the throttle and steer, with mod the variations of throttle and wheel is endless to keep things going smoothly so you will really have to learn car control.

I think Mod rubber is really cool now and by far the most cost effective class, no need for special speedo, a 5, 6 or 7turn geared moderately will last Forever. as your battery gets old and your magnet weak, who cares it was way too fast to begin with. LOL

The pre production samples that i got were really good. so i have my fingers crossed that it was duplicated properly.


Thanks

Default Damper grease

Hey Paul,
I race my XII on asphalt and its pretty dusty. I find that if I dont replace the grease in my damper disc the car is like eratic on my next run...
I use the standard xray diff grease and some shock oil 350 or 450cst.
After my 8minutes run its like nothing left in the damper disk...
How often do you grease yours.? And is it and alternative for the diff grease.
How much do you put in?
I tried different grease but cant get one as thin and soft as the Xray diff grease, with thicker grease my rear pod doesnt react the same.
Any help will be much appreciated.
Thanks

Hi, i always did replace my lube after every run. like you said thicker grease would stay on their better but that is not the best for asphalt atall. Honestly i dont have any suggestions as to what to do, I think i used 700cst on mine when i ran the car on asphalt but that wont help. My ONLY idea (MOST LIKELY NOT A GOOD ONE ) would be to place teflon tape on both sides of the graphite and the plastic. I dont think that this will help keep lube but maybe you could stretch the springs and run it dry?. But i would lube it every run. Thanks

Looks like I finally found the justification I needed to run some mod.
