Sounds like you stripped the screw itself. Isn't there a spacer that goes between the bearing. Did you forget to put that in?

well thanks to everyone for their suggestion on the cars setup. we didnt have rain this weekend and the track had a lot of bite.

I managed to get the 2nd place, I lost the first place when I got a stop and go penalty for ramming while I was lapping someone, It was my fault as the gentleman was cruising along and I was heading down the small straight like a cruise missile . Oh well need to be more careful next time

the car weighted 1501gr and the regulation limit was 1500gr

Setup;:

Front:
+1 toe
-1.5 camber
4 degree c-hubs
3.5mm spacer on the back of the suspension arm
1B(front)-1A
upper connecting arm, 0.5mm spacer inside 0 outside
steering conn arm, 0.5 mm inside 0 on knuckle (I have square knuckle and the rod was connected to the closest hole to the shaft)
40wt oil 3 hole pistons yellow springs
4.5mm height, 3mm droop
medium sway bar.
Ball diff

rear:
-3 toe
-2 camber
0 degree hubs
2mm spacer on the front of the suspension arm
1XB(front)-1D
upper connecting arm, 0.5mm spacer inside 1 outside
40wt oil 3 hole pistons Red springs
4.5mm height, 3mm droop


the car was shimmed all around to remove slop.

Tires:

sorex 28 with hara black ver1 inserts excel dish wheels
No wheel spacers

ko 2413 servo, Molac ESC, CP 10x2 (the rotor finished before the final) and CP 10x1 (was actually faster) I used one fan on the esc as I had cut off problems and one was in between the motor and the esc. On the motor I used an old Racetech water jacket which I soaked with cold water.

gear ratio: 76spur, 24 pinion, 2.25 internal

best lap was 20.050 (19 sec eluded me this race ) best lap of the track was 19.940

1st place was rdx PHI with 8x2 in it the 3rd place was Xray T1 with 4.5 Brushless.

Last race I finished 2nd again so I need to start winning if I want to get the champ cup our national champion ship has 5 legs so we will see what happens in the end.

Reedy Race update..
Marc R wins in invite

Looking at the pics, looks like he was running the MSXX chassis and top deck, and certainly looks like a bigger centre pulley... also looks like standard length LWT arms, and not the short.

Maybe Mr Numan can share the tamiya teams setup

I think Marc runs the short arms just for indoors, along with the old original chassis and topdeck.

AND,

Tamiya USA's driver Corey Lewis TQ'd and won 19t Open Spec...congrats dawg! And another big shout goes out to Rod Canare for an overall third in Open Mod. Tamiya was really strong...minus my dismal performance.

Silly thing, but why he does`t use his own MRE, because that version is made for asphalt, wright?

I think because MSXX lowedeck is only 2mm, and its topdeck flex a bit more than MRE... that is better for low traction... I really don't think it's because MSXX uses Evo 5 bumper, that is not!!

Did reedy allowed 6 cell as well on mod?? I wonder, because Marc's is clearly using 5... so can we say 5 is better??

5-cell mod IS faster that's a definate. At the first two rounds of the BRCA nationals the previous 6-cell track records have been smashed and beaten by quite a few drivers.

MSXX chassis is 2mm, and the pack is placed further back. It's better for 5-cell mod because it helps provide mexhanical grip and is lighter, whilst the overall balance of the car isn't too bad.

Did you glue the diff locknut in the diff locknut holder? Just a drop of CA gue will hold it in place, be sure not to get glue inside the nut threads.

Awesome run for the Tamiya guys. I bow down to Mr Corey Lewis for his victory in 19T, he pulled off the the triple crown at the Tamiya track. TCS Nat winner, KO Grand Prix winner, and now the Reedy Race Champion! Freaking dialed and great stuff. He definately earned his Lobster and Filet Mignon dinner last night.

I'm not Numan but I can say that our cars were the best they've ever been at the Tamiya track.

As for the chassis, I believe we were all running the 2.5mm chassis with a mix of top decks. I remember seeing Marc with a short supsension at one point but I do not know if he went back to the standard LW suspension. Some of us used the new center pulley/belts and it definately freed up my already-free drive line. Also, a lot of us were running McMaster Carr, or Yokomo steel screws on the top deck so that we could really crank down on them and the cars were rock solid and consistantly held their tweak even after clipping curbs, or the kink at high speed.

rampal, the Invitational class had to run 5 cell. Open Mod and Spec had the option to run 5 or 6. I tried 6 cell with a BL 3.5 and it was just too much power for the setup, tires, and track conditions. I went to 5 cell after two practice runs and changed absolutely nothing on setup with the exception of going up to 500 in shock oil and the car was the best it's ever been.

I'll try to add more details when my mind is a little less foggy.

Holla! Hi Steve, it was a pleasure finally meeting you and hanging out. Thanks for putting my car down during the mains, I really appreciate the help. Also, don't worry about the runs...(the ones on the track at least) I saw a bunch of them and they were getting better and more punched every time. At the end, it was right there.

Yeah, if you look at the pictures, Marc must be running MRE chassis, as looking closely, the holder of the bumper although is the MSXX one, it is in the wrong position and doesn't have the screws in....

Hey, need some help! Removed my Novak GTX speed control from my MSX and installed a GTB and a 4.5BL motor. The car worked great with the GTX but now it glitches under heavy acceleration greatly affecting the steering servo, plus the throttle is hyper sensitive!!!!! I've done the text book trouble shooting procedures, including re routing the wires, replacing the reciever with 2 known good units, changing the location of the receiver, and changed the batteries in my transmitter. Is it possible that I got a bum speed control or could it be the motor? The speed control is new out of the box but the motor is second hand.... Until I can resolve this issue I'm going to have to reinstall my GTX.
Can someone give some suggestions for gear ratios for a 8x1 brushed motor.

Thanks in advance.....
