Very disapointed about plastic bearing holders...
The bearing move inside so the axle too...
The only issue is to buy aluminium bearing holder.

And this week end i put front jaco wheel. I have to use 1.5 mm shim to tight the wheel.
Any tips for this ?

How did you stick the servo?
With ShoeGoo?
With double sided tape?
With something else, if so what?

Any special attention as to the positioning left to right on the chassisplate?

Is there a difference between the way you mounted the servo and "the kit way"?

If so, what?

Any differences as to Ackermann?

Ran my 10sl for the last time as a 2c/17.5 yesterday (we are going to 1c/10.5) and it was very nice to drive! Something that I will be trying out though, is softer front springs. I noticed that the .20 springs I was using had gone soft, so put new ones in. The car pushed loads after that, hence will try .18 front springs next time! Also, I have done a small mod to the rear pod that lowers the roll centre of the pod. Will post how that turns out! Cheers :-)

the servo is stuck to the chassis with double sided tape , but i want to try the standard servo mounting position , but this servo is missing some lugs from the case ,

I have the same ackerman as standard but i miss the bump steer now , this might be causing me some understeer issues but will test it out

Default Corally 10SL spur gear

Would like to try 48DP 83T or 84T.
Corally has nothing in between 81T and 86T.
As to roll out setting the gap between the two is too wide.

Any suggestions as to what brand spur would fit?
So that is preferably 48DP 83T (or 84T)

Would these fit? http://rcmarket.com.hk/product_info.php?products_id=422
If not, which ones would?


Thnx

Default Battery Tape Corally 10SL

Is battery tape needed for this car to secure the LiPo battery?

We have a very big race meeting coming up next month for GT10 cars at the Autosport show at the Birmingham NEC. It has been decided that the meeting will be 1c/10.5 boosted only, so my 10SL has been stripped down, modified and put back together.



As I only use the 4-pivot rear end, I milled away the parts of the main chassis that are used for the regular side links which are never used. After that, I milled some slots down the length of the main chassis, again, just to loose weight to get the car down to the lower 1c weight limit. I have also cut down the standoff's for the battery plate, so that the plate itself now sit nicely on top of the 1c LiPo. Finally, we made an aluminium lowe pod plate that is slotted to help with getting rid of the extra heat that is produced by using a boosted 1c/10.5 setup. That plate is only 6 grams heavier than the original carbon peice, but hopefully, by keeping the motor cooler, the overall race time should be better.

Got a meeting this coming Sunday to get some testing done, but really looking forward to the Autosport show and racing in front of thousand's of people!!

Cheers, Chris.

The new aluminium plate looks great. It is always nice to see people doing DIY stuff on their cars.

Thanks mate. Got a few more things that I am going to make for the car, will post pics once they are done after Christmas. In the meantime, we have a meeting this coming Sunday and I have decided to run my car as a 2c/17.5 for this meeting but can easily change it to a 1c/10.5 just by plugging in a booster (and changing the motor obviously). Here's a pic:



I tried using lowered pivots for the 4-pivot rear end, but it restricts the pod movement sideways too much so have gone back to the standard pivots instead.

Cheers!

The ROAR Paved Nats were this past weekend and the 10SL won A2 and A3 for the overall win in WGT. We will have pictures and a setup up later.
