i am running a servo that has metal gears and the tamiya HD servo saver. but Adam is 100% correct. add these stoppers and your issue will be solved.

Just picked up an F10 and want to run a silver can motor with rubber tires and a lipo battery on an asphalt 60x80 track. Any suggestions on a fdr? Thanks.

Indeed run a servo that has metal gears to solve your problem.

Also turn down your endpoints, and dual rate

i usually start at a 4 fdr and run a lap, check temp, if ok, another, if ok, run 3 more, if still ok, let it sit, for about 15 min, then run for about 1 min on the track, check temps, if ok, run for 3 min, if ok run for 5 min. if ok, increase 2 teeth on spur. continue until the temp of the can doesnt get too hot. i personally dont like more than 90* on silver can. i dont know the max temp the silver can can sustain, but i think its higher.

i like an FDR around 3.5-4.

and the area of the track isnt a good refrence. if there are alot of turns, you want a higher fdr to get out of those breaking areas faster, but too high you can spin out and other racers can make up ground on the straight away.

i remember about 2-3 years ago i did the same thing in tampa. I even got a brushless for mine from abailey1 and was at the local track for months on end. no one showed (for F1rc.

Several months later, i find out there is a class and there are 25+ people running in it!

adam, did your fx10 kit come with 3x3 spacers or just 2 sets of 1x3? mine came with 2 sets of 1x3, one was standard alum washer and the other was a 1x3 spacer in a nice dark grey color...

i contacted mikeR just incase there is an issue...

He's an awesome dude, I have my EXO104 in the mail as we speak. I'm looking forward to trying that as opposed to the FX10.

I just suck at setting up link cars, I've only run T-bars like the HPI so it should be interesting

that it shall. best part is the exotek chasis are 90% of a complete chassis. The HPI really only needed the t bar, motor mount, servo arms and front/rear sus. everythign i already hopped up... so I technically have 2 chassis. one fully modded and one bone stock.

that F104 isnt very forgiving. its a great chassis, but I am like you, the link is a little more complex. but there are companies with rear pod shock upgrades that include 3 shocks on the rear pod instead of 1. probably better for rear stability...
