STRIKER- Nice layout on your Xray. I really like the vent you installed near the motor. Does it actually keep the motor cooler? And what did you use? (Lexan from a body top?)

i used .30 lexan sheets made by parma which was available at my LHS. i would say yes it keeps the motor cooler the diff in temp after running is quite noticable (especially in hot weather).
i also used the same lexan as bumper support to strengthen the bumper.

i'm glad you liked the layout for me its one of the things that makes this hobby interesting. the challenge of making your elec fit and make the wirings as neat as possible.

As a club officer, I get all these upcoming "manufacturers" sending me new items to promote and what not. I'm sure some of you came across these "scoops" on ebay for you motor and I received one in the mail, kinda the same concept as Striker's but not as small.....

Anyway you can cool your motor off is a plus. At first, I didn't believe how those little Reedy fans would help but I wouldn't run a car w/o them these days. It does cool the motor significantly, and more importantly I see no fading from the motor at all throughout 5 mins. I like to show off to people how cool my motors are after a 5 min run.

Here's what I did...

I got the xray with the 1.77 ratio with that one way that has 32 teeth, but i want to use a diff up front for carpet racing. I just bought one from a friend but it stretches the belt to tight even on its loosest setting. The diff has 34 teeth, so is it still the correct pull on the diff, or do i need a different one to have the 1.77 ratio and allow the diff to fit.

Rustler,

You need a 32 tooth diff pulley!! If you dont find one by next week-I can sell you one. I am racing from Friday-through Sunday so I wont have time to ship it till then.

I know there isnt much difference in stock racing and 19t racing, but i have a question on the setup.

Should i keep the belt tension all the way loose? Or should i bring it back to the middle?

Thanks

Jon

so the drivetrain is as free as possible.....not that it makes much of a difference anyway. It is more for efficiency so your motor doesnt get as hot.
