Default never hardwire a pack backward

If you hard wire packs than you can be at risk of installing a pack backwards because you may not notice which end of your pack is negative and which end is positive. Write a + symbol on the positive end of the pack and a - symbol on the negative end of the pack so you can easily tell which end is which. You could even write the + symbol with a red permanent marker and the - symbol with a black permanent marker if you really wanted to.

Default REEF OIL

Reef Suntan Oil works well on foams .. only problem is it takes ages (1-2 days) to properly soak in.

i have seen this tip about a thosand times! and i don't know about you guys but it doesn't work for me, even if i use 2 peices of paper it still turns out to tight!
so heres what ya can do, put a pinion on that has 1 more tooth than the pinion you actaully want to use, press it up tight as ya can, then take it off and put on the pinion with one less pinion(the one you plan on running). the result is a "perfect mesh"

btw - i can't take credit for this, i read it in another thread, but i thought this would be a good place for it.

Sounds like a good idea. Does it work for 64 and 48 DP gears??

Personally the paper trick has worked for me to date and I have managed to achieve "perfect Mesh" (or near enough) every time..

i've only tried it with 48p, but i see no reason that it wouldn't work for 64p.

btw what a great thread!

Default More traction for stock mini-z

heres one for the mini-z racers.
take the tires off and turn them inside out(then put them back on). its amazing how well this works!
mine had a bad case of oversteer so i just turned the back tires inside out, now it has a little understeer insted. much easier to drive and way better lap times!

For 64 pitch you'd need to use something thinner like plastic wrap. I eyeball gear mesh every time, paper trick just never worked for me, it always felt too tight or too loose.

Default Save money on foam body protectors

I know that we don't spend a lot of money on foam body protectors that protect your bodies where they rest on your body downstops. But I was looking at the X-Ray T1R and noticed how it included foam pieces ontop of their body downstops. So you can do that buy buying the body protectors and just sticking them on top of your body protectors. Than just cut the extra foam off. And you will never need to buy new body protectors again!
