Default "Hodge" the great

Todd,

It was great meeting you, and watching you do the double at the "Rain" this past weekend. And thanks for answering all of our many questions as well.

I do have another question for you though, how did you setup your 19t motor, brushes, springs, gearing, etc. Obviously a lot of it was driver and car setup, but I was curious as to how you ran it anyways. Good luck at the Carpet Nats.

Thanks,
Steve Curry

Another question on the bellcranks...

At what point in the arm position should the bellcranks be moved forward? I know that you cut off the nibs on the front pivot block to move it forward an extra .060. If you just have the arms spaced forward, should the bellcranks be moved and flipped?

Hi Todd,

One time you mentioned that you switched fron plastic to aluminum diffs and it made you car act differently. I can't remember if it was off road or on road.

Do you notice and handling difference between plastic and aluminum diffs with a TC? If so what might you find the difference and when would you use one or the other?

See ya next week!!

Thanks,
Paul

corallyman-It was nice to meet you last week Steve. On my 19T I used Reedy 767 brush with purples on both sides. I cut the sides of the brushes down about .010 on each side. I cut the motor every run and would re run the brushes after I would re-serrate them with my Trinity Serrator.

mr.losi-That should just make the car more sensitive.

RichO-I move the forward and flip them when I go full forward plus another .060".

chicky03-Not sure on that one...I never ran aluminum outdrives on my TC. I have ran steel outdrives on my TC vs. plastic. That does make a big difference. Is that what you are talking about??

EddieO-Then give me that 1$ for each time I said it.....

XXX-SBill-Sorry I could not make it...work was really busy this week plus I leave Thursday for Cleveland....so I need time to get stuff ready.

MDAWSON-Sup....probably not going to make it...sorry bro!

chicky-I thought steel gave more traction and stability. On carpet you only want to run plastic.

Randman was there today. He was running the all white body for practice. His car looked good as the day went on.

That off-white car went by my stocker so fast, I was wondering who that guy was. Thanks.
