It's not the motor/car combo you need to worry about, it's the car/curb combo you are inevitably headed for.

On a serious note, what ESC are you running? I'd start with the ESC turned back as far as it can go, and limit your EPA on your radio to 75% and then just keep turning everything up from there.

I was running a Castle 5700KV (3.5T) in my JL up until this week. It handled the setup fine. Diff rebuilds are common (@ least with my kit) with the 5700KV motor (2S max). I dropped an EZRUN 60A with a 6000KV 5.5T victory motor in there this past weekend. Ran it today - on 2S it handles it just fine. On 3S - it caught a bit of a bump, went airborne and it flipped over. It landed on its lid and slid down about 20 feet. My radio showed a max RPM of 20,235. I'm going back to 2S until I find a smoother surface to run the car on.

Yup, I have had some previous issues with the car/curb combo running that motor! Hopefully I will be ok in a big, open area. But I'm sure I will find something to hit. Not sure on the ESC yet but it will probably be a 60a ezrun I have already. Any ideas how fast this car will be with that setup?

Default Setup needed for Parking lot

Need a quick setup (alignment and gearing) for parking lot running. Setting up a small course, nothing major but corners are tight. Just finished putting the car together, former 1/12 driver from years ago, but I hate the servo saver and battery tray on this thing. Also wasn't too impressed with the hex hubs and pins - ended up tightening the wheel nuts to push the pins into the hex hubs to seat them. Not sure if that was the right thing to do but it got rid of the wobble.

Any good source for spare stuff like front end pieces, bearings etc?

Thanks all!

http://nitrohouse.com has all the parts. Save your money and get bearings from avidrc.com.

Battery "cups": Yes, the stock ones suck, replace them with these:
http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LX2778


Gearing is the major thing, the car was geared for brushed, with brushless it feels like slow motion with the stock gears.

Find our what final drive ratio is good for your track. The internal ratio is 2.5 on the JL10. A good 48p spur is 69 tooth, plan on getting pinions in the 30-40 range. You can get smaller spurs, but not much.

What class/motor are you running?

quick questions for you guys. what a great thread!

should i replace the diff balls from the start with something harder?

are there better, more durable dampers available? i'm looking for something adjustable and robust.

thanks.

Are you running RCGT at West Coast?
if there isn't a 55t available (i dunno, i was just doing the math based on D Starks's post), you could run 84/53, 69/43, etc.

in addition to my last questions, along with ordering extra arms, should i order



or

It's just a bunch of us at work setting up a small track in the back parking area - so no known information to go on right now. Figure size-wise, not a whole lot more than a typical indoor carpet track - main straight is about 130-135 feet long. Have a couple of brushless motors and just tried out the car for the first time, off the line not too bad but pulling the straight not so quick. Need some additional adjustments to ride height and suspension settings. Right now, stock 82 spur with a 19 pinion and the 2.50 equates to a 10.78? I am thinking something in the 6.5 - 7.5 range would be a lot better.

Thanks for the tips!

Default Spur Gears - what make fits?

Sorry but can someone tell me what brand of spur gear fits this puppy? The parts list I see on nitrohouse only list the stock 82 unit.

Thanks again!

Smile Ass-end or dragging my tail??

Made a few runs and at this rate I'll need a new chassis plate next week! So what's the hot tip for setting the ride height and which shock oils to use? Car seems to handle fairly well although I am still pretty rusty. Back end likes to come around a bit more that I prefer but again suspension settings are off in my opinion. Any numbers for front and rear toe settings? Sitting still, the camber setting is amazing with less than 50% of the tire making contact with the pavement. Shocks are obviously messed up as rebound rates just bouncing the chassis a bit are different from side to side. A lot of tuning to do so if you have any tips or ideas toss them out here.

Thanks!
