Did you get Marvin's setup sheet? I need a baseline setup to start with and since Marvin and I use most of the same tracks, I think his would be great. Hopefully I can get my hands on it.

Hi, i just picked up a tekin rs pro and a 13.5 vector x-12 for my jl10, and was wondering what gears i should be running. i've read in previous posts that gearing a tekin is somewhat different from other esc's. i'm not in competition or anything but i drive on a 50'x40' parking lot with an abundance of low speed corners. i've been using the stock 82t spur with an 18t pinion but until reading this forum i didn't realise how critical gearing is with brushless motors. any help would be appreciated

How have your temps been since running with the Tekin and current spur/pinion combo? Are you getting enough power?

I have yet to get batteries for my temp guage, so i've been going by touch. and only once has the motor been too hot to the touch, and this was about 8-10 minutes into the run. also the power does feel as though there is a little lag on corner exit. however i was going to place an order on monday for Robinson Racing 64p 88t,and 93t spur's and 16t, 17t, 18t pinions giving me a fdr range from about 4.8 to 5.8 so i was wondering if i should go for this selection, or if not maybe someone can point me in the right direction.

Just thought I would add some info to the mix. Found this on the Hong Nor website Hong Nor X10e.

Default new JL10E owner

My JL10E arrived yesterday. The kit is a great product for the price point. The instructions are legible and clear, the parts came in organized bags, and the included "spares bag" was a nice extra.

The tips on this thread about the servo / steering linkage position is on point. using that second (middle) hole on the servo horn prevents the rubbing of the shaft to the linkage. A tip to future owners - purchase a metric type screwdriver (such as the Tamiya branded). My regular Stanley #1 and #2 was not an absolute fit - and could possibly strip the screws (if I kept using it). The Tamiys screwdriver fit snug and was a better fit.

There is enough clearance for my Castle Sidewinder ESC and motor. The instructions stated to place the rcvr on the servo - but there is enough room on the top plate as well. I'm planning on taking it out to the track this weekend to run w/i my bro.in.law's TBEVOV - I will post how it holds up to track time.

Default Also a new owner of a JL-10e

Just got mine running and like it so far. Just as I get it together, it rains and rains. What I get for living in the Northwest, I guess.

I did get to make one run with it and it drove pretty well. I am more of an off roader, but wanted to have something I could drive without a track. Just not willing to grind off the tires on the Ultima RB5.

I still want to race this, and it looks like it will do fine. Currently, most of the electronics are old brushed/NiMH parts that I had lying around. Not sure yet whether I will go brushless or just race VTA.

S -

I first ran it with a 17T brushed with the stock gearing and it ran great. It was smooth and handles well. When I dropped the Castle BL setup in there, it turned into a whole different monster. Fast and still drive-able

If you get the chance - do the AE battery cup mod that's posted a few posts back on this thread. Well worth the $6 and the 5 minutes it takes to drop it in the JL10

Thanks Macavant,

I had actually thought about those old RC10 Battery boxes. I actually ran an old gold chassis RC10 back in the day. I also thought that just using the screws with the holes in them would work as well. I pondered drilling out some screws, but realized that would be nearly impossible, even with my drill press.

I definitely need to get a LiPO for this car, but not sure when. I run off of a $60 a month allowance to make our budget work. I am also pondering a EZRun Brushless system since you can get ESC and motor for less than $100.

I mainly got the car because we are talking about putting in a track at work. Wouldn't that be unbelievable? Possibly an indoor track in one of the buildings at work.

Thanks for the suggestions and look forward to seeing more here.

Default Pebbles in the gears

So I ran a couple of battery packs through the JL and it drove great. Needs a bit more power but a LiPO would help. Twice, though, I had to stop the car and get some small pebbles out of the spur gear. Any idea how to keep that from happening, besides not running it in the parking lot at work? The gears won't last long at this rate. Would 64 pitch help as there is not as much room for the pebble to stick? Any ideas would be appreciated.

64-pitch would be worse.

Try a little adhesive tape over the hole on the bottom of the chassis, might help.

Bottom line, find a cleaner place to run!

Yeah, I know, I wish I had such a place too.
