JBrake.. Barry had the good car there and will have a setup for everyone shortly...
Now as far as I read you used " Barry's set up at Novak "

My question is how did you get .120 washers under the steering rack ball and the steering hub to work? I tried and the steering binded when turned.

Unless I am wrong, .120 washers is like 4 plastic washers?

Thanks for your time
Bryan

JSAVES..... Mine was darn close to hitting.. you might have to trim the end of the ball cups to get all the flashing off.. OR you might have alittle taller ball then was used.. But to make it right go as far forward as you can without it hitting...

Default reedy ti 9x2

Hey Mike

I run a 9x2 reedy ti which seems to have lost some power due to magnets weakening.

Is this possible?? I notice when turning the armature by hand the notchy feel it used to have is a lot less.
It also feels a little sluggish when raced.
Truing comm and new brushes seem to have little effect.

What can be done to re-energize the magnets??

Thanks

Loopy

C'mon Mike B and get your ace down here this weekend...

Socko, You knucklehead. You coming down?

JBrake, It's definitely getting better each time out. Made me take your wheel....

Seaball, I am going to put a pad lock on my door when I sleep. You scare me LOL!

JBrake.. Awesome... Glad i could help some.....




loopedeloop.. I guess this is possible... Although most of the motors i run do not seem to do this anymore with the newer magnets like the ti use.. Maybe it is the arm getting too small ?? Or possibly the brush's not seeting well with the com ?? some people zap magnet's but that was a thing of the past since most of the new motors i do not see this .. But anything is possible... one thing you could try is to take the arm out and put it in a different can and see if it is the same or better ?? Sorry wish i was more help ...


RBLove.. Man wish i could come down there, But i have prior commitments to practice all this week... The only day i am free is sunday .... So i guess this is not going to happen... But maybe if i can talk my teamate into driving alittle maybe it could ;-)

Mike

Jack Smash... Putting spacers on the rack changes the ackerman of the car, I found the car turns in alot better with more spacers and gives the car a more aggressive feel to it.. As for under the steering blocks it is for bump steer to try and achieve some of the same purpose's





loopedeloop .. You are welcome...



lazyboy.. No problem ,,


Mike
