Default Type-T questions

Hello guys. I had an earlier version of the YM34 (you may have seen me posting around page 5 or so) but regrettably I sold it after having driven it only once. Now I want another belt drive car and the Type-T was at the top of my list of possibilities, along with the T1R, XXXS G+, and Mission. I have pretty much decided on the Type-T because I want a car that accepts side x side batteries and I really like the quality of the YM34. And I can get a really good deal if I get it on ebay

Is there any way to adjust belt tension? I remember on my old car the belt rubbed on top of the motor. The belt didn't skip or anything so it's not a big deal. I was just wondering.

Here is a pic of my old YM34:

not without getting creative. you'll have to make your own. my t front belt was so perfect. the rear, which is wider to boot, was way too tight. just an fyi.

nice car! i may keep my 34v3 if i can.

Default Belt tension

OK then. I don't think it will even need the belt tension adjusted. Thanks for the reply.

Default Type-T or Si?

Seaball,
You posted this picture on page 14. Is this a Type-T or an Si?
Did you change a lot of parts? Or de-anodize them? I like the silver aluminum way more than purple...Seaball YM34

Default MVP

Sorry, one more thing...
Does 6.29 sound like a good starting point for an MVP? Or is that too high? Or too low? I have no idea

kenny,

thanks. i like it raw too. silver that is. yeah, check out some of my posts around that page 14 as i listed some pros and cons of the machine.

it is a type t. i would definitely get an si over the t because the weight appears to be a bit more balanced. if you run gp's you'll find the car to be crazy heavy on that side. even with umh cells (lightest avail) it was 35 g heavier on that side. with gp's it will be 30 - 40 on top of that. as in around 70g of added weight on the electronics side just to balance the car. that's about 2 1/2 ounces!

for a typical us touring track, i would say to roll your mvp out at or around 1.05"/rev. as in ...

1.05 = tire circumference/FDR ...

most rubbers are about 2.45" so that makes a 7.69" circum and you would be rolling out at 7.69/6.29 = 1.22! that's really high, especially for an mvp which tends to run hot. if your track can support high speeds, maybe it will work, but i'd recommend first starting around 1.05 -1.10

good luck. and when will integy put the si on ebay?

Thanks for all the info
My batteries are in fact GP 3300s. They are noticalby heavier just holding them lol.

Also I found some old notes I had taken on my TC3 and found 6.29 was off from what I had found to be ideal. 6.428 is what I'm after. I can get damn close to that with 87/33 (48 pitch) or 125/45 (64 pitch). That sounds more like it right?

Hmmm... I guess Integy will eBay the Si when a newer version comes out

I just dropped a Novak Brushless into my T. I geared it 29/90 so it should be pretty quick. I got Seaball's Atlas stuff so I got to run with a diff up front for the first time last Sunday. I think the new diff loosened a little as I got ass-around a few times. It was just wierd to have that much control. I was used to wishing the car around the track. Ya know, when the car is so loose, it looks like somebody else is driving it. I had taken off both swaybars too. The extra traction is nice but slowing me down I think. Better to drift than grab and drag all the way around a corner.

The Novak SS purple matches the T, hehe. I was surprised when the race director said I could run it in stock class in the limited mode. 24k rpm limit in limited mode. Dunno about you guys but I know I don't get 24k rpm out of my Monster stock motors.

Default ym 34 set up suggestion

hello all,
i am once again getting my T ready for fall. i have shimmed the lower suspension blocks and senn to get the car what i wanted it to do. i put a .4mm shim under the rear of the suspension block to give the rear 0 deg squat and shimmed the front to give it a 1 deg kick up. i tried the u3 suspension block and the car acted funny. i also tried the 0 deg front block and still acted funny. so kept the stock block at this time. trying to get the different blocks from alex racing(not too sure. its the club enthuse blocks).but at this time my car has plenty of corner speed and has no problems keeping up with yok sd, tc3, and losi. my set up as follows

front
spring yok grey knuckle 2mm top
50wt oil w/ stock piston 2mm bottom
63mm length front hole on knuckle
tower 2nd out
arm all the way out
camber lower outer
sway bar 2.1mm
toe zero

rear toe block outer
spring yok grey
55wt oil w/stock piston
64mm length
tower middle hole
arm third out
camber middle inner
sway bar no
