I have found that the car handles best with a softer set-up, the Atlas purple springs are quite hard though, I'm sure you wont want anything stiffer. What I have done is made some heavy sway bars, 1.2mm front & 1mm rear this stops the car leaning too much in the corners.

I run purple atlas up front and blue (kit) rear springs.

Email rainbowten www.rainbowten.co.jp, they dont have Atlas parts listed but get a delivery from Miwahobby weekly so they can get what you need, prices are about 50% of Integy.

Dragon

Make yourself some swaybars, get some 'music wire' from a hobby shop and bend them to the same shape as your original bars. Costs about 50c per metre!!

Default Type T on the Integy Weight guage

I've read in the past on this forum that the left/right weight distribution is way out on the type T.

Having just checked mine on the Integy weight guage I found that each corner was pushing equal weight giving a cross weight percentage of exactly 50%.....

Does this sound right, am I doing something wrong?

The car was fitted with 3300 GPs, KO 2143 servo, Monster Stock motor, KO 301 receiver with 30g (just over 1 oz)of weight added to the servo to meet our 1500g (3.3 pound) weight limit.

How do i order stuff from ranbow10 if they don't have it on the site?

Will look for some wire for those stabilisers.. can't stand a car without em.....

keithander:
You might have balanced the car with the weights you put on. The type t has the battery near the middle i belive so it shouldn't be to far out to begin with.

dragon,

control centre has most of what i need. i still can't find the delrin dif outs. get me a set too, if you locate them. haha.

let us know if you do find them at rainbow ten. i have them for the rear, and they are awesome. worth every penny. now i need them for the front, as we really don't run oneways on carpet.

cheers

I'll have a go at ordering by email and i'll let you know how i go....

Just out of intrest.. I have found this car to rival the pro3 for direction change performance. What does everyone else think??

I am told that tamiya make their hard tuned springs in a short version. Must have a look for that as the normal ones are only a little to long.

I'll back up Keith (he's my brother) and say dont bother with the delrin outdrives they are expensive and dont last vey long before they start slipping. Also get the Atlas short purple springs they are as stiff as you'll need.

Running my Pro-4 tomorrow, bet I'm back to the type-T for heat two

i'm going against keith...haha. he's also my brother too...what?, . no, but really, i've used acetal (delrin) outdrives on other cars, without any real problems. this a very slippery material, so gluing the rings with ca is usually a requirement. no big deal, as it can be chipped back off when you rebuild.

and as long as the bones are inserted the correct distance into the outdrives, and an anti-spreading retainer clip (integral to the atlas design) is used it's tough to hurt them. most plastic outdrives are ruined by the cvd bone exceeding the travel allowed by the outdrive. use external limiters on the shock shaft, and that usually does the trick.

the diff action keeps the joint from seeing the large impacts that a oneway can bring. it will just break loose upon impact provided the other side isn't seeing the same force(s).

aside from hardened steel, which wears the steel cvd pin flat anyway, delrin wears less than any other material that our industry uses for outdrives. the beauty of the atlas outdrives is that they are machined. they run very true, are tons lighter than steel, and also run quiet as the vibrations in the bearings are slightly dampened by the plastic.

properly done, acetal outdrives should provide for plenty of usable life. i'm actually looking to use irs cvd's with this car. the one's that have the plastic pincushion. the pin cushion is .094, but the slot for the atlas drives is only like .082. that will actually allow me to file a small flat on the bones. plastic to plastic contact with increased surface area on the pin. if this works the car should see almost zero backlash for it's lifetime. and the best part is that the bones are like $12 for 4. i think this configuration should hold up for 27t stock racing.

my $0.02
