Let me know if you find something on the glitching. Thanks

I have noticed that the electrics gltich more than my nitro's. Wonder if it has something to do with the ESC's?? Speculation only as I am NOT a EE.

Rollout Distance question

I have a question on rollout and distance. I am trying to see the corolation between distance and rollout. I know how to find rollout.
Circumferance / ratio where the circumferance is pi * dia. and the ratio is trans ratio * (spur/pinion)
Ex [(64*3.14)/(2.125*(93/27))] = 27.5 Rollout in mm

Question becomes how to relate this to track length?? We run a straight that is 150 - 160' depending on the setup. Trying to figure out how much gear to run with my setup for this track. I know that rollout gives you 1 rev of the wheels.

Today at the races I was having problems with the rear end of my car hooking up. I am running stock setting with 40wt oil. My shocks lower mount is on the outer position. I added 1mm to my rear downstops for a total of 5mm. I am also using a rollcenter bridge. I tried both positions and both were still loose. The track is farily bumpy and short. Any suggestions as to where I should run my rollcenter links? Thanks

Have you tried without the Roll Center Bar, in the sotck location? Also I would try 30 weight oil in rear with 2 open and 30 weight in the front with 3 open. That is what I run outdoors but it is with foam tires.

I ran it all last season without the roll center bridge. I will try it next race without it. I will also give your suspension setting a try. BTW i am running take off cs-27 tires.

Well guys it was fun.. I am selling my X-Ray and pretty much all my electric equipment. My Wife and I had a nice little talk and it was either Summer Racing or Winter Racing and since the summer season is longer I choose that and if I am running outdoors it has to be Nitro. I did try to just run in the Summer with both Nitro and Electric but she did not go for that.

Here is the link for anyone interested in the stuff that I got.

See you all later.

XrayEye:
I run mine pretty much with the stock setup here, works for me. My gearing is still out, but I am working on that if this blasted rian will stop I am running the kit tires, XXT with the Yokomo firm inserts. sticks well and rund good. Better that the driver The only change I did was ride height is 4.5mm front and 6mm rear. Same as my MTX-2. FYI, our track runs a 150 - 160 straight and is a bit dirty and bumpy. I may have to go back to 5mm on the front. I ran 4mm last race bit I hit a few time on the bottom in the main. Track was real dirty then. (Parking lot). I can post the setup sheet later tonight if you like.

What do you guys use to adjust the rear & front turnbuckles? I measure them at 3mm. I have been using a baby cresent wrench, but this has clearance problems.

TIA

RC nitro, check mytsn.com Hudy makes a wrench just for the stock turnbuckles. I have one and won't leave home without it.

I made one out of brass rod. It looks pretty crappy but it works well.
