Hi to everybody,
I am a new consumer of this forum.
My car is Tamiya TRF415 MSX-MRE and me I have a problem:
I have attentively followed and with a lot of care the instructions, but my car has the chassis folded up.
The chassis is ok, when I end the assemblage the chassis he slightly remains folded up.
You excuse me, I don't speak well English...
To someone of you the same problem happens?
Thing I have to do for resolving?
Thanks you!

Sounds like you have a tweak problem? Undo all the screws on the chassis so they are loose and let the car sit over night, then tighten them up again. If it is tweak it should get rid of the problem.

Un screw all screws slightly, then tighten them all back up again except the top deck screws. Place the chassis on a flat set-up board then push down the lower chassis deck, at the same time tighten the screws in the top deck in a 'X' pattern.

try to unscrew the upper deck, let the car rest on something (car stand for example) and not on its suspensions overnight. this will let the lower deck to straighten up. After that you can screw back the upper deck as per Charles Godwin method posted above.

Default Please help

Hi Guy's
Both myself and 2 friend's from our track have had major problem's keeping the wires on the V2 motor.We are all using MSX's, Every race meeting we have the motor wire's come off. We have all resoldered the wire's , cleaned the end's for good contact. All running heatsink's. Does anyone else have the same problem. It seam's to be a issue with the endbell. The motor's get around 80/85 temp. Is there such a good thing as a good ratio for a 7x1 motor on a open, wide, fast track with several technical corner's to it.
My car I thought I had it sorted out. The car is super fast and handles well.
My motor is a orion,
7x1, with a 61,000 rpm the motor is set at 6 degree's advanced.
My ratio is 102/28
7.967
Rollout 24.843
The 2 other guy's car's are pretty much the same setup's, except one has a 8x1 motor.
Do any of you guy's have any idea's please.
I have come to ask the god's of the R/C world here for help please.
Thanks
Addam

HI I'm running the Tamal fan mounts and I'm looking at a 10-20 deg(c) drop in temp on a run, this is giving me temps in the mid 40's which means that I can gear up and not have to worry too much about wires becoming unsoldered.

deffiently sounds like you need some fans on there.... I'm using the Tamale mounts now too (that makes three ), which help.

TBH, just try and get some fans so that they are directed at the motor wires, that should helps loads. Even if it's just a fan servo taped to the chassis, that'll help.

Make sure it's wired into the batteries though, as that will give the most consistent voltage to the fans. Good fabs to get are the Much More ones, or the Cool Can Fan ones (more expensive, but smaller).

HiH

Hi Guy's
This is the fan I am running and it seemed to work really well at first, I was hit in the side and the fan is fine but it started getting hot after that. Both fan's still work though.
Thanks

Addam,

To be honest you're going to have a hard time keeping those wires on as we get into our hot summer months. I saw a couple drivers prior to the Nats have the same problem due to the heat.

I know it's untidy but I suggest you simply run as many fans as you can fit in there - I've seen quite a few cars with 3 or more fans

Another alternative is to solder some corally tubes onto the motor and use corally plugs - that might be more tolerant of heat before it comes off.
