Default 12L3 Comp Kit vs 12L4 Factroy Kit

Hi Mike

I am looking to get my first pan car and was looking at the 12L3 but then I saw the 12L4. What is the biggest difference between the two and which would be better for a PanCar newbie?

Thanks

rinkrat99.. The 12L4 is the better way to go , You get all the stuff you need to go racing.. Where as the 12L3 you will need to invest in some parts to make it like the 12L4... They just did some minor changes for 4-cell racing etc....

Hi Mike,

I'd just like to ask what pinion should you use for a 98 tooth spur for your TC3, 64 pitch, when youre running a 9turn triple wind motor. Thanks.

More power.

John

b4racer .. I do not run stock that often so this is really a guess from indoor carpet racing,, But i would say anywhere between a 33-35 tooth pinion with a 100 spur.. Hope this is close.....




droop1000 .. depending on the track i would say between a 28-30 / 100 .. This should be a good range to start.....



Wency_TA03R-PRO.. Kit comes with 48 pitch gears.. So for a 11 turn start around 23-25 / 72.. this should be a good point.. you might have to go higher.. but this should be safe...

Default Braking

Hi Mike,

I know your busy, but I have a quick question. From a fast straight going into a tight turn, how do you brake? Is it a quick tap, two taps, or gently go from full throttle to full brake?

Basically, how do you brake?

Thank you in advance.

Joel M.

Hi Mike,

I found this old motor and it is still in great shape. I have run it and it looks good to me. I just don't know How many "Turns" this motor is. The motor is Kyosho Le mans 240S. I look on the web but i can find the specs.






Thanks for your time.

rccartips... I usually have my brakes turned way down so that if i do panic and stab them hard it do's not throw my car for a loop.. So in sharp corners at the end of straights i lay on them pretty hard since i have it set in the radio at like 50% or something close to that.. I have never been one that could be smooth on brakes like i am on the throttle.. So i need this cruch to help me...


Blackwrench™... Wow old school.. I have run them before in the 80's but to be honest i have no idea how many winds it is.. I think it has to be in the 20's though if i am not mistaken... I would just post a pic on this site with the topic need info on this can you help ?? Maybe someone on here will know the answer... Good luck and sorry i could not help you further...



Mike

Tnx about that mike. Another question what if I want to go faster do I need to change from 48 pitch to 64 pitch? does this matter? what would be the pros & cons if I do change the pitch set assembly I mean what if I change the pinion/spur gear set to 64 pitch??.. If it wouldn't be possible to do it, do I need to change the spur gear size? still a 48 pitch do I need to change the the 72 teeth? go up or go down just to get a good speed and torque? Im running on a balance race track half technical and half top speed track?. what would you suggest?..

Wency_TA03R-PRO.. I would stay with 48 pitch.. I recently switched from 64 to 48 for outdoors.. I like it alot better.. less hurting spur gears and easier to get a good mesh and not as easy to strip. Pluse if you get dirt etc it do's not effect as much.. Only downside there is not alot of room to play with ratio's as with 64 pitch.. But that is something i do not think you need to worry about..


Barry... LOL.. I have seen you drive too ya know ;-)


Chicky.. I need to seal the deal first before you can say that. But if it was not for baker teaching me about outdoors like he has i would not have the chance to beat or even get close to him...
