I just got a T1-R and have a couple assembly questions (for now). First, should I build the shocks with the adjustable or standard pistons? Second, the car comes with a 48 pitch spur. Is there any reason NOT to change it to 64 pitch? I have always ran 64 and have tons of them - just trying to avoid buying new ones.

I would imagine using the adjustable shock option would give you easier tunning accessibility. Preference would dictate your choice. I like being able to loosen an end, pull, twist and re-attach.

There isn't a problem using a 64 pitch pinion or spur, it's a bit more precise to fine tune but on me, it's wasted.....I'll go faster if I just center my servo and stay off the @$^*#%& boards..not that I did that today or anything...

Good luck

The externally adjustable shock pistons is one of the nicest features on the car, cant see why you wouldnt want to use them.

no, I run 64 pitch

They already made running changes as far the the packaging boxes for T1FK.. it`s all new blue color. Manual still the same, but for sure will be updated on the run as well.

I am afraid you really cannot do this. The reasn Josh Cyrul and the BMI chassis are able to do this is because the batteries on the left are not in the stock forward position. They are a little bit back. I am afraid to say for now you have to cut a slot to tape them in or buy the BMI special order split chassis.

Actually you can run the cells in the full forward position on the stock chassis. What you need is the six cell battery brace. This goes in the hole that is right next to the pivot holder when you use the short arms. To prevent the three cells in the forward position from moving put an extra pole in the middle (i.e. behind the rearmost cell.

Hi,

Does it means the those 3 forward batteries will sit higher from the chassis compared to the other 3 on the right rear?

I hope they don't sell xray parts anymore, they'd screw up your order half the time anyway.

I seem to remember, not too many pages back, that someone posted about their belt flipping over on them during a run. This happened to me this weekend during my main and I was wondering if anyone can remember how to prevent it from happening again. I can't seem to find the solution. Note that I also am running my belts one step "looser" than the stock setting in 19T and stock.

Cheers.

well you could try a belt tensioner, but they say thats for modified racing, but if you run 19t maybe you can use it. I think you should go upone step tighter in stock racing they say, in the rear belts i believe.

They notchs on the rear bulkheads, if the manual they say to put it at the 3rd or 4th notch i believe, but most racers say in stock racing you should go up one step tighter.

Hope its not to confusing.

we had a guy at our track that had that happened to him. We found that the belt was too tight and that caused it to flip. I run stock and have the belt on the loosest setting and have not had it skip or flip. so maybe you have too much tension on the belt.
