I was thinking of getting those low ratio pulleys because at the track i run at right outta the corner you need torque, not so much top end. I am doing fine the top end part, just need alittle extra push so i can make my way up during a race.

In the future i am thinking of getting the FK but i will wait for now since i am running well with my T1R.

What should i gear a Reedy Quad Mag/ CHameleon 19t motor at with a 120-124t 64p spur gear? I guess i will start small and make my way up if i feel there is a need too.

Thanks

Jon

Default Short suspension arms

Sorry if this has been discussed before, but how does the shorter suspension arms on the new T1's make it handle better?

it makes for more leverage and is more durable. I might be wrong.

Default Stripped screws

Hi all,

I have an X-ray T1 FK and I love it, but I have a small problem turned into a big one!

All my screws that go into the Alu bulkheads are stripped!
I have used Gripp-ex and use the Hudy duraluminium allen wrenches, so my tools fit.

Wath can I do tp remove the srews?
This way I can't cleam my chassis and rebuild the diff

Can someone please help?

I thank you all in advantage!

Thomas

840918001-your only way out now is to use a cut-off wheel.

I told al my local buddies to put a little antiseize on there screws. And dont overtighten the screws. The heads of the stock screws are soft and easy to strip.

Cut a slot in it and take the screws out with a screw driver.

you need to take the cutoff wheel and try and make slots in the screw head so that you can use a flat head screw driver to remove them. If that does not work, you can take a grinding bit and carefully gride the head off the screw. then you should be able to grad the remainder with a pair of pliers and unthread them from the bulkheads.

Are there better screws that you could use in the bulkheads? I'm waiting for my FK and would like to head off this problem from the start. Does anti seize work well enough?

I have never had this problem of screws stripping on the bulkheads. I guess i should be careful when i need to take them off.
