Default spur gear installation

Hi, Oleg, I just receive the kits today and it is really a amazing car. I start reading the instruction manual detail and plan to build the car in transverse mode. I find that the spur gear got no pin to lock with the bevel gear...while it seems tightening the 12mm nut to smash the plastic spur gear into to the teeth of the metal bevel gear, is that design capable to handle high power motor such as 4T brushless motor?

Yes, this design capable to handle 4T motors.
Please use good 12mm wrench, tighten spur nut harder and check tightening of the nut periodically.

I run transverse, when I fitted it I thought 'No way ever is this gonna work' the power will loosen the thread - its not even left handed..

Honestly I don't know how he got this to work with a right handed thread. But its never come loose even once

When time permits would like to try inline, to see how how it handles when the mass is more centralised

The nut self-tightens during braking .

i saw this car in person and is really sweet, but really need a setup system to adjust the car and set it up, so i assume you all probably have the hudy setup system, or can you adjust it using a regular camber gauge, and rulers, or do you just built it to factory dimensions, and add or take ot shims for final setup.

you still need good setup tools with the other regular/conventionally designed cars if you want to have the same setup run after run. it doesn't have to be hudy mind you, but still, a good setup system is required (with any kit).

Tested yesterday the car at my local track (http://www.pistamelzo.it), immediatly found confidence with handling and pleased with set up. The track is very fast (designed for IC 1/8 and 1/10) with a smooth surface, which provides good grip even with low air temperatures. Here is my set up:



Oleg, You have designed a beautifull piece of machinery, congratulations again.

I am looking at the setup sheets, now for the chassis, if there is a red circle on the bottom do you have that screw removed or is it there and the others removed, and for the top deck, if there is a x is it cut or it is the one that is not cut thanks
