howard hudson - Barry Baker posted the following setup for the quad mag that was used at the reedy race. Polarity brushes as he called it(+cut on the + brush and a vertical cut on the negative brush) with copper head springs bend to 180*(stock springs are too soft) and 766 brushes. I think the final drive was around 6.

cool thanks, I was at that race also ( i sucked but was there). I was running the Reedy motor with a final drive of 5.7 and had lots -o-rip. When I built my FK I took every thing out of my warpspeed car (electronics) and put them in it, but I did use a diferant ESC maybe thats my problem. Iam going to change it and see whats up

The problem is prs spurs dont fit the pro layshaft i have tried a few of them since our shop carries the whole line i do love the pinnions though

Does the factory kit use droop screws? Looks like there is a spot for them in the arms, but nowhere on the chassis for them to stop.

Randy,

The front arms hit the chassis well inside and on the rear-theres two sets of droop screw holes, of which you use the inside ones and the set-screw face is 95% over the stock chassis.

SO-yup-you use droop screws with this chassis.

Default Carpet Foam/FK

Hello,

Have any of you tried running the mid-roll center instead of the LRC on the FK bulkheads when running high bite? Just curious if it worked well or not and what other changes were done to make it work (i.e. softer springs? Raise ballstuds on hubs??).

Ray

I run the mid roll center on both front and rear bulkheads. I haven't done any real major changes to the geometry. Everytime I do, I always go back to the stock position. This is on asphalt though, not carpet.

Is your JR receiver synthesized? If it is, you may want to switch to crystals. If it is a crystal receiver, try moving the receiver above the chassis like on top of the servo for best reception.
