steve eaves.. We run about .100 worth of washers .. This is to change the way the bump steer is.. Seems to make the car turn a bit better entering the corner...



ms2005fl.. not sure if they will work or not since all i use is associated shocks... only one way to find out that is to try it and see.. sorry wish i could be more help to you ...

What's your point of view on Dead-Shorting Batteries? Do you guys at AE practice this method?

Rock, no mod racers dead short batteries because it decreases the runtime of the pack.

I'm sure Mike can offer more thought on it though...

I wouldn't say that. I know of several Mod drivers that deadshort on a routine basis. They don't seem to have runtime issues. But then again these drivers have exceptional throttle control.

Why do some people say that belt cars are more efficient than shaft cars? I believe shaft cars are better (efficient) that's why I bought the TC4. What do you think Mike, and do you guys do anything special to your cars? Thank you in advanced

Can you please tell me what "deadshorts his batts" mean. I think Hara is an awesome driver. I want to meet him someday.

Rock56 .. I have played with it for 19t and think it helps alittle , But for mod i do not do it as we lose too much run time when doing this.. But for 19t it will help... Just be prepared to lose alot of run time when doing this....






newbee_racer.. As for cars... i think if setup correctly both have positives and negatives.. just a matter of preference.... As for the dead short batts.. what this means is when you have a pack dishcarged all the way down to let say .9 a cell then put a wire from the positive to negative wich will dead short the cells.... Hope this helps..


Mike

He doesn't deadshort his packs, but rather the cells. He keeps them on the tray until next use. There's a big difference between deadshorting a pack and deadshorting cells. It's too risky deadshorting as a pack because you are assuming that each and every cell has the same charge in each of them Some people prefer it that way and some don't . I guess it's just a matter of preference. I prefer to deadshort by keeping the pack on the tray.

Thank you so much for your reply! You are the first pro driver that I've ever talked to on RC tech. I think you are an awesome driver plus the fact that you talk to the average racer makes you a class act. Why do you use Novak esc's when I thought that Associated drivers are supposed to run LRP? Do you think that Novak is better and why? I need to upgrade my LRP Sport, so your opinion will help me a lot.
