Yes Zosha! A side drive shaft.
Not really. The thought has crossed my mind! I don't have cad, but it would be easy enough to replace the the 2 17T outer gears with beveled gears and a shaft with beveled gears on the ends. Best of both worlds input shaft for motor response and front and rear pulleys for smoothness. It would only take a couple shims to make it tighter or looser on the shaft ends.

Good idea! I hadn't thought of that. I'll give it a whirl tonight.

Smyka, you have PM.

liljohn, most of the issue is due to the plastic tub of the JS. Both my RS and FS are pretty 'free' with no extensive work. Could they be more efficient, sure. The side belt pulleys are too small and the centers are too. As is my cars and Dave Ehrlich's are pretty good for efficiency.

Will you be attending the Trans Am Nats next month? I will be there with my E4RS. Stop by and I'll show you everything I've done with my car.

Congrats to Dave on his A main finish at the Carpet Nats. Wish I could have been there to make it two E4s in the main.

Socko

I'm trying to talk my wife into it Jonny. We'll see. I think If I had just picked up an RS instead of a JS in the first place, life would have been much better.

I think a spacer under the layshaft might be a good starting point though as it would add slack to both the center and front belt and take the tweak out of the front lay shaft. If this solves it, I'm going to be extremely happy. Then I'm going to recommend that someone put out full size shims for that front shaft holder (or just ignore the placement pins). The next logical step if the spacer works would be to replace the two cast pins with set screws to adjust the for the required depth depending on shim height or maybe just to hold the shims in place. if the front belt is perfect and the center too loose initially after shimming, that's fine, then I'd actually be able to use the center belt tensioner.

Hey guys,

I recently purchased a team magic e4 and currently i am setting up. I was wondering what spur and pinion i should use if i wanted a lot of acceleration but a lower top speed as i race on a track that is technical and has a lot of 180 degree turns (or close to that). I run a 540 can. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Francis

A 540 can is pretty genaric. What wind motor is it? Who made it ? What are the dimensions of your track? What battery are you using ? Let me know and I would be happy to help....
