Yes you are correct, the springs adjust the tweek in the car. I would get evrything assembled the turn both screws down until the springs make ligt contact on the links. Then make little adjustments to get the tweek even.
You can run more or less pre-load on the side springs to change how the car drives.

Questions??

A lot of my local club mates run the CRC car with 7.4 Lipos. They use
5.5 up to 7.5 on our indoor high bite carpet track. These cars fly! I have a 12R5 with NIMH and therefore i wan't to give the 10R5 a try. Question: To be competitive, i would have to run 3.5 or 4 turns motors. Has anyone tried this?

I am looking at cars to get into this class. Does this car share any of the parts like arms, steering blocks, etc from the previous associated oval pan cars. Looks to be totally new. I have alot of oval parts so if this one shares parts then it might make my decision really easy.

We are looking at starting up a GT10 class here in Sydney, but we are only interested in Lipo, will a stick or saddle lipo fit in the 10R5?

I don't believe that either will fit because of the pod links.

The BMI DB10R will fit both and you can buy it from Hobbyworld in NSW for under $300 AUD, it's a great car and very durable , there is a thread on it check it out

I am buying one and hope a class starts down here in Vic .

yeah we are already buying some from hobbyworld, their real price is 350, the webbie is wrong, on the old exchange rates.

I was interested in the AE, as the importer is local, and a racer is now in there also, so the support should be good.

I saw in another thread someone claimed a saddle lipo would fit, but i would like confirmation, preferably a pic to be sure.

I understand people wanting to run 4 cell indoors on small carpet tracks, but surely why start a new class running virtually outdated batteries, i know in 6 months there will be no one in Australia still running Nimh.

Default 10R5

hey guys, well I just picked up my AE FT 10R5 and I was wondering if I can get some advice. Well for starters what BL system should I use for this car and what type of servo do I need to use because the standard size does not fit properly. I am new to the pancar world but love them so I had to have one. We have a great indoor carpet track here that I will be racing at and any advice would be great...thanks guys...I will post some pics up soon...

It is centered around a 4-cell pack but was reading somewhere a Lipo is awesome. What battery is your local track planning to run?

We have time to decide as season start by the end of December ... now, a lot of people already have backup systems on Brushless 13,5 as its the platform for our current "stock" touring car class 1/10 4WD, so we are thinking in using same platform for RC10R5.

Now, on the batteries side, we have no idea on what to use ... 4 cells niMh ?, 7.4v lipo ? (do we need a regulator with those ?) ... etc ... no idea so please any advice on this will be very appreciated, always thinking on Brushless 13,5 motore systems,

thanks !

For running 7.4V Lipo you donīt need a regulator just a Lipo-ready ESC. Of course 4 cell is easier to drive than 7.4V Lipo but I think if you ever have tried Lipo you wonīt go back.
For motors it depends on the tracksize what you should choose. Yesterday at a race I have seen touringcars running Lipo and 13.5T BL motors and that was very good working. But I know some people here think for Lipo a 17.5T or even less should be used.

Thanks ... the thing is that as our touring class its based on 13,5 brushless, a lot of people have backup systems that can be used for the GT class now ... thats why our basic question its about BATTERIES ... and on 7.4v department, which are the candidates ?

thanks,

Could the 10R5 be released for the older Associated front end? The new front end is a hangup for me since I would rather use the older style like all my oval and 1:12 cars.
