Default HPI 23RS stock motor

Hey Guys;

Can you change the Springs and Brushes on these Motors (23T)? If so then they might be OK.
Out here in CA, USA. 19T is called the Spec class and 27T is still considered the Stock class.

Default Electric 2spd transmission

I don't see the advantage of THAT one. It looks all metal (heavy) and the 2nd gear ratio is only 1:1. The gears look awful thin too. Too heavy for a Stock Motored race car and too fragile for a Mod Motor.
Would probably be great in something like the Tamiya Pantero kit or a Clodbuster.

Default Amazing how a little water can change things

Guys;

I didn't realize immediately that you are overseas from me. Funny how things will be different and when we answer posts it's so easy to forget that everyone is not reading out of the same book.

Default 3 & 4 degree Caster blocks

Went out and bought some yesterday. I have until next weekend to put them on. What are your thoughts on Kick-up? Right now I'm running the front block flipped down to get a Total of 6 degs Caster. If I install the 4 deg "C" blocks and run 2 degs Kick-up, what difference would there be over the other way 6+0.

I'm not sure what the end effect would be, but with the 2 degrees you get from the plate the suspension arms will swing at a slightly different angle. I think that may have the effect of adding kick-up as the suspension compresses, not sure though.

This is from the AE tuning guide:

2 kickup will work best in most conditions, especially bumpy conditions.
0 kickup will have a more aggressive steering feeling but will not absorb bumps as well as 2.

Default Kick-up

rc-zombies;

Thanks,
I think that I'm going to try the 3 deg "C" blocks along with the Kick-up at 2 degs. That will give me 1 deg less that what I'm running now and hopefully slightly more HS steering.

Werent you asking the difference between using the 6 degree blocks, as opposed to the 4 degree blocks, and then using 2 degrees that block that holds a arm pins in. If not I am asking it, cuz it would be interesting to know the real answer.

Right now i have the 6 degree Caster blocks and the Front hinge pin block turned over to provide -0- degree of kick up. What I was wondering is that with the Caster being equal at 6 degrees. What difference would the 2 degrees kick-up make as part of that 6 degrees.

6 Caster + 0 Kick-up = 6 total
OR
4 Caster + 2 Kick-up = 6 total

What would I notice in the handling if anything between the two set-ups.
