Dear lord! That chassis is a brute. You could seriously beat someone silly with that club

Looks good. What's the geometry like? Batteries still in the same place or moved forward?

Default prob with T1R

Well it finally happened. I have a problem with a RC car that I just cant figure out. I have been running my racyer for a while now with no problems other than maintnence.

The problem is a grinding or rubbing sound of some sort when I turn the wheel under power. it sounds a lot like a blown bearing. So naturally I replaced the car with a set of new bearings. But there is still a problem! so here are some other tings I have done to try and fix the problem.

1) replace CVDs
2) replaced hubs
3) tightened the servo saver
4) put a different dif up front.
5) of course checked for binding or rubbage
6) checked all parts

So I have checked and replaced all that I can think of and I still have the problem

Is there anything that you guys can suggest that might be wrong? thanks guys.

Check your EPA on your radio to make sure the rim isn't hitting the shock end when full locked.

Is the wheel hitting any part of the car while in a turn?

I have a question about my raycer. I am wanting to loosen the belts up to see the difference for stock racing. I have the "holders" of the breaings on the bulkheads set in the stock or middle position. Do I want to loosen the center and front ones? Just one? What about the rear? Do I turn the pieces to the loosest setting or just one notch?

I know I could do this on my own and experiment but I really dont want to take apart the car that many times if someone already knows .

micro mike-

the grinding sound is probably the cvd binding at full lock it happens on almost all cars. try applying power like 1/4 throttle and then slowly go through the steering throw and i bet the sound starts toward reaching full lock.

new92-

its really hard to give a definite answer on that question with out personally feeling the belts. i would suggest moving the eccentrics 2 position in the front and 1 position in the rear.

try that first then just (unfortunately) experiment

Andrew thanks that sounds like the problem but I have rebuilt the cvds and replaced the parts.

and I have inspected the car about a hundred times for wheel rubbage. and I dont see any at all. but I have noticed that the sound is rougher when the wheel is bolted on.
