With calvin's help, I now have a NEW and IMPROVED setup sheet. It accounts for graphite shock towers, sway bars, different chassis, all the different castor blocks, and will calculate final drive.

anybody who wants it e-mail me

popsracer I already sent it to you.

This, by the way, is a nice piece of work. Newracer has done a superb job.

the clicking sound is one of your belts slipping, probably the rear since the front is almost always too tight anyways

to prevent the batteries from moving you need some small pieces of foam on both sides of the chassis

Check your spur and pinion gear very carefully for a small obstruction in the teeth. This will sometimes cause the clicking sound you seem to be having.

Also put a piece of foam underneath the battery bar as well as the sides as suggested by newracer

No, the rear belt tension is adjustable by rotating the bearing supports.

Default Strange "clicking" sound (Aliens?)

church;

My money is on the REAR Belt being too loose. There is a really fine line between being just right and too loose. Just adust the Belt tensioner 1 notch tighter and it should be alright.

For the Battery Packs, use the little pieces of Foam on the sides (as 'newracer' suggested). You can also put a thicker piece under the Battery Strap to help keep them in place.

How does the Car drive with all of that Toe-out in the Front. I would think that you would lose alot of Exit steering that way?

newracer;

Thank you, it is great.

Default new belt...

church;

Looks like your Belt has been slipping for some time. Best to replace it. Get the Low Friction Belt(s) while your at it.

Make sure the Pulley teeth are not packed with crud too. This can cause skipping of the belt. Use a pointed object to clean in between the Pulley teeth.
