I just got my T1R last week and am loving it. I'm running an MVP and it screams! Anyways, i ran it on a small and low traction track, but lack on power steering and the rear breaks loose very easily. Any suggestions on set up? Right now, it has the stock set up.

Cutting teeth off pulleys and belts?

Alex,

Have you tried cutting teeth off of the belts and pulleys? I saw where Cyrul did this to help free up the car. Any thoughts on this?


Thanks,

i just got an idea, but i'm not so sure if it's gonna work.. has anyone tried to replace the plastic bearing holder on the center layshaft with a flanged bearing? it'll be something like the T1, only with bigger outer diameter flanged type ones. atleast the one next to the motor endbell. if anyone had tried this before, can you give the size of the bearing? i know someone will come up with "bigger rotating mass issue" because of the bigger size bearing, but i don't care! as long as it fixes the melting problem.. thanks in advance!

How are you going to get the bearing to stay on the bulkhead?

Crash, there are some Losi drivers out here that do that to their belts, and it does free up the drivetrain. I thought about doing it, but the belt material is different than the losi car. I find it easier to just loosen the belts via the eccentric hubs.

Perhaps allignment of the layshaft might be an issue. Normally the bearings are pretty good and last a long time if it's assembled correctly.

Alex Lopez, I tried your setup that you (Pucho) posted earlier in the thread on my T1R and it worked pretty good. Best carpet setup I've tried yet.

I broke my only set of 6 degree hubs, so I put the 3 on instead and left the dive at 0. I changed the front spring to the dark blue. The car is very good, but running mod so I would like more on power steering mid to exit. The rear end could be a touch better. I was thinking about moving the front links up a hole or moving the rear link. Or possibly going to 6 degrees by adding 3 dive.

Please let me know what you think. I just want to try something small since the car is so close already. Thanks.

Scrad-For more on power steering,stand your shocks up.Try some kick-up in the front as well.You might want to try different springs as well.Let me know what you think.
