they were easy to make... just the measure, then cut.

and you may be right... they stick really well, but im sure mine are more likely to come off. the diff grease may get on the back and loosen them...... maybe i shouls run a tiny bit of ca aroungd the outside edge... hmm....

sure, i can make more. i made 2 sets this a.m.... just takes a few minutes. im deciding on wether to bring this thing with me. its not very big, and can be run with my laptop.

yup guess so
For us tamiya drivers (and i guess most shaft cars) the smaller spurs would be a good bet, like around the 100 tooth ranges. for other cars, say such as the X-ray, I guess the larger styles would work best.
I just know that if tried to get some of the spurs that people run on x-rays to fit in mine, it would be grinding along the track... It just won't take the larger spur gears.

looking again at the PRS stuff, I would say get the TC3 and Xray sets, that'll probably cover the needs of most people (who aren't pedantic like me, and has to have every combination possible )

Thinking about it, i don't think I've ever used a pinion larger than 32t, but then again, I have been racing indoor mostly.

the biggest 48dp spur thatll fit a 415 is 80, an 81 will fit but is stupidly close to grounding out if the chassis is flat, just as a guide

thanks for that stew, useful to know. Any idea what that relates to in 64dp gears?

BTW i have to admit to something... I was so impressed with how you'd preped your chassis edges on your car (sad aren't I ) that I've done the same to mine, all nice and rounded... makes it feel like a new car
Took a while mind, and I covered myself (and my parents lounge carpet ) with carbon dust, but well worth the effort.

And too Arun and Tamiya driver, what sizes are you cutting you sheet? internal Diameter mainly. I've been looking at doing a similar thing with mine, but i notice the outdrives are slopped slightly, in exactly the place where I want to mount the sheets. how'd you get round this problem?

thanks in advance
Regards
Ed

There are some vinyl diff covers from Team Atlas and they work very good.

my circles are .8 by 1.35 inch...

i started at .75, but it was slightly too small, and rubbed the outdrive. these at .8 leave a small gap, but shouldnt rub.

uh... me.... although, i am bringing an Evo IV, and a Evo III as a backup.

one other guy from here runs a 415.

on that note, what oil you guys run on carpet with rubber tires? i am trying to get a little prepared, since we have no carpet here. i have 2 or 3 hole pistons, too...

yup... they stick to the outside rim of the pulley. i also figure that the adhesive indsie may attract the dirt that gets in there, and contain it too... maybe. good theory.

ill know more after this weekend...

cool, I'll pop down to my LHS on tuesday and make some of my own up, something that'll prove rather useful given the amount of carpet racing I do (damm rubbercrumb gets everywhere!!!)

And phil, it's soo true, it gets everywhere! I think I went through about 3 sheets of medium grade paper doing it, as well as the 100 top tv moment of '04 on channel 4! hehehe....

oh and as quick pic, this is what us english mean with the rounding.... look at the shock tower



and all the other carbon plate has been done the same.....

Tamiyadriver, you need to bring the 415! It's fastest Tamiya car on carpet. Far as oil, on 415 for rubber we were running 50F 40R with 2 hole pistons. Unfortunately I'll be running foams at Novak race, but 415 just rips on carpet with rubber. Way better then Evo3. Not sure about 4, since no one's runnnig one here locally. All local Tamiya cars are 415, running indoors on carpet with foam or rubbber.

Also, debuting at Novak race will be some custom made shock towers for 415 for foam carpet racing. Lowers the upper mounts by 1.5mm, and has extra outer holes to stand the shocks up even more. When tires get down to 56mm ish with foams, current tower's too high, making the shocks too short to be able to run any droop/negative travel.

Default Kai Chassis parts

hmm, just been looking at some of te Kai chassis parts avaliable for the 415 again, and I've noticed something thats put me off them (baring the expense).. theres only one mounting hole for the steering servo! (at least on the flat bottom chassis anyway)

taken from rceasy.com
http://www.rceasy.com/images/news/kai/415fb06.jpg
It's daft, theres a variable slot hole near the centre line, but no outter hole, thats just rediculous.... I know you could use double sided tape, but i've never been comfortable with using servo tape for such an application (which is probably daft given it's name..)

Anyone used one of these chassis yet?

I did see a lwt chassis (with cutouts) that did have two mounting holes for the servo, but it was the LWT version, and I can't find out anymore information baring that on the RCeasy.com site.

Ed
