Dragon: That's really bad.. wouldn't it be good if you could get your escs fixed in here? If you do need any help with your ESCs, do let me know and I'll might just fix it for you for a good price.

Ivan,
Do you have a set-up which can repair surface mounted components? Wow... my schulze esc which I got back recently, returned with the damaged surface mounted transistors.... I could not identify their part numbers (melted) but the pins are waay to small. I've modified the surface mounted resistors on graphic cards before, but those sm fets are just too small...

Alvin, Yes.. I have a setup to repair surface mount parts. It's NO joke manual soldering them especially when they are super-small. If you need need any help, you know where to get it...

I'll need to take a look at the fets up close before I could tell you if it's really worth repairing. It doesn't help much if the markings are gone.

hey guys, what other spur gear can be used? This .4 pitch pinion and fine spurs suck! I race on parking lot style track thats blown and sprayed, but still little pebbles make their way into the gears and mess them up. (and as you know they aint cheap!) plus you have to disassemble half your car to change to a new pinion.


HELP. robinson? HPI?INTEGY? tb01? tg10?

Aluma: rc-cross.com has a TB01 spur gear adaptor, it *may* work, do ask the other members for confirmation.

OTOH, whilst on my TB01 with the carbon chassis, i.e. visible spur gear we use the tamiya AV pinions and spurs. They have much less gear ratio and run very much noisier, but they seem to last very long. I did run the 0.4 for a while but they are a bitch to mesh andn strip too easily. Running costs were too high ;-) So went back to the AV stuff.

well, checked out rc-cross.com and found nothing of the sort. oh well,

AV designates a 48pitch METRIC which is what I'm looking for.


and so far the usual online hobbie stores dont carry that part.

cheapo TB01's spur gear bag...comes with a 55T,46T, and another.


I wanted to get that gear bag and try one of Kimborough, or robinsons plastic pro pinions.

Aluma:
Check this URL: http://www.rc-cross.com/page/TA-04%20TB-01.html

The spur adaptor is at the very bottom of the page.

I don't think AV is similar to the 48 pitch, we have tried running 48 pitch pinions with the AV spur gears, while no damage was suffered, it made alot of noise.... and we didn't dare run it for serious... events

TB01's spur set has 61T, 58T and 55T.

i read an article in Extreme R/C mag. about he evo2.
it says you can use Kim, RRP and some other gears on it. dont say which ones specifically though. it did have a pic with a pink pinion and a black spur(think it was the normal one)

so how do you order that adapter? everything's in japanese!! hehehe

you guys sound like you know what you're talking about....maybe you can help me out.... I'm pretty new to R/C and I got a tamiya car.(flame suit on) anyway, its got red springs which are soft and comes with this orangy oil.... its too soft a setting (figured that out cuz the car sparks sometimes) I adjusted preload and helped but not enough. I got the tuned spring set and i'm thinking blue front and yellow rear(firm, medium) but I have no idea as to what oil to use. my LHS only carries associated...would you guys know what weight matches the blue and the yellow springs given all shocks use 2hole disks inside?


I once put 30 wt with the stock chrome springs and the car looked like a pogo stick...I DONT want that to happen during the race!
