That's what I've done, will try tonight. In addition, I flipped the battery holders upside down as the other way wasn't very tight (still using NiMHs).

Default Springs and things

Question:

There are two spring kits offered by Ofna that I can see...also single pairs. Anybody know the approx rates of these springs?

I see:

p/n 38469-3 pairs of springs, and

p/n 38490-6 pairs of springs

They look an awful lot like the Tamiya springs on the cards and all. Anybody know?

Thanks

Your final ratio should be between 3.74 and 4.00 with a 17.5 brushless
that boils don to a 73/47 or 88/55.

I understand these are bigger than 190mm for bodies. Did this effect anything regarding the KO Propo race this past weekend or were RCGT cars not tech'd for wheelbase, length, width, etc?

For RCGT the max width is 200mm. The JL10 passed inspection.

Plain and simple.... You can't... I have this car as my VTA but also know I would never use it in our touring class... this car is great for the bang for your buck but I have threw my 17.5 setup in it and it performed nothing like the other chassis.... stick to rcgt or vta where the other cars have less of an advantage...

Anyone managed to get the JL10e down to 190mm? Thought a person or two had mentioned sanding down the hexes might work.

I had tried that but you can only go so far because the wheels need the full lenght of the hexs to grip good and pluss you would need to sand down your rims as well because you could run no hexs at all but still be limited to what your rims allow... I had placed the hexs into the rims themself and sanded them even with the back of the rims and was no where near 190....

Try pulling the hexes and mounting the rims with the drive pins only in place. Wheels will be a little floppy, but this will be the narrowest you can go. If you are still not at 190mm, then the mods you will need to get to 190 will be pretty extensive.

I think the stock plastic hexes are about 6mm thick? The question is do you have enough "meat" on the outside face of the hexes to lose 2.5mm PER SIDE before you grind all the way to the drive pin slot in the back face of the hex. Even at that, there might be other issues with clearance with the rim on the hub side.

As I had stated I already tried this and the rims hitting the hubs was the problem you can only go so far and it is not far enough the extra length is in the arms and I was not going to try and put all my effort into making an ok car work in rubber touring... More of a hassle then reward...
