Default RC Maniax Spool

hi there

the first response about our spool was not so bad - so we think we'll produce a batch soon. the parts with a new light-weight design will be available in about 3 weeks. of course these parts will be blue anodized.

we're going to test a first prototype this weekend. this design needs the corally blades which fit perfectly! (weight 9.17 grams)

hey rcmaniax,
Just wonder, have you thought about putting the outdrive slots at 90deg to each other?
My heavyweight speedtech spool has them this way round. personally feel it puts the drive down smoother.

Regards
Ed

No, they are shaped like a Evo IV upright, since the 415 normal upright looks like a TA04. See the differences between the two on the Tryhard's page with the different setup sheet for the LW arms and the normal ones. The rear uprights on mine look like the LW ones.
I'll find out from Tom's setup board on Wednesday what toe it has on it anyway.

Tryhard - I'm running the kit tension at the moment which by memory is like pointing downwards. I think that you are right and I'll try to move it +1 or +2 around and see how it goes. Just wanted to make sure of that before I do it, cause theres a few screws to take out to do that change.
Thanks again ill give it a go

As people have stated....a quick fix might just be the 6mm hexes. They should solved your clearance problems without having to buy Pro4 knuckles and bearings.

If you have both the LW suspension and standard...try running the standard. 28mm foams fit fine with it.
Thanks Nexus ill try get my hands on the 6mm hex

The problem with spacing it out so much is that it removes a lot of steering from the car. The LW suspension already has less throw than the standard suspension. This is why we went with the pro4 knuckles on carpet with foams.

Yes, just the front knuckle. You need to use 4 5x10mm bearings and the axle from the old suspension. Then, to assemble, you must put a thin motor shim on the top and bottom of the knuckle.
