Default RJ Speed sport 3.2 pan car

Anybody out there runnings these???
http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXYHX7&P=ML

My local indoor track has started a class of these. They are running 21.5's and 2s lipo. I was thinking about getting one till I seen them run last week. In the corners they produce alot of wheel hop. The owner says he thinks it's because of the solid rear axle (one wheel needs to spin faster the the other)
Anyone else having the same issues?

I have one and i'd bet the wheel hop is coming from the rear u-plate suspension being way too stiff. Unless the diff nut is set way too tight, it should have sufficient "differential" action. Go visit www.rjspeed.com and check out the online manual to see what i mean on the axle assembly.

For the u bar you might first make sure the holes for the screw and springs is free. You might have to file it out alittle. Second the spring for the tweek can be changed. Also loosen the diff nut a little at a time. Try pushing the car backways and give it throttle. Adjsut the slippage by either loosening or tighting the diff nut. If someone at your track has a pan car ask them to help you check out the diff.

I don't have one yet. I was watching the others run and they all have wheel hop in the corners. I wonder if running a stagger in the rear would help.

I believe I said it already. I also converted it to an Assocaited frontend and a older Bolink rear pod and ran it in a WGT. Handled very good at the Kissimmee Road course track last year. I could say more but I'd get in trouble. Just work on the Ubar by making the screws go thru the hole smoothly and change the spring to maybe green progressives? Also get some the spring guides to help.

Default Bullfrog 3.2 pancar

Hey Bullfrog, I just bought one of the 3.2 pan cars to run WGT (yes I'm cheap) lol. I figure the 1S will fit nice in the "U" and was wondering how well the WGT style body fits? I'd love to hear/see your setup you ran, although I'll try to run it with the stock front and rear ends....... gotta be a way to make it hook up on carpet.

Any tips would be great!!

As it is - it is a basic pan car. It should hook up on carpet. Did not know there was a carpet track dpwn that way?Purple fronts and pink rears or spec tires all the way around. if someone has a tire truer you can cut them down (another tip later).
As for the body just get the body mounts (any body mounts work) I use the HPI as they have many adjustments. then cut the excess off and your ready to go.
If your going to Minregg next weekend or the carpet track in plant city let me know.

We have a new track opened here in Ft Myers, Jeff's R/C studio. I'ts growing into it's own and is turing into a very nice place to race. I'll set my car up using your tips, but I'm a little concerned about the durability of the front end? Like to leave it stock and make it keep pace with the high $$$ cars, just makes my day to beat guys with low buck products!!

Check out the thread here on rc tech,

I'll let you know how it goes, should be able to race it Sunday.....

That is the old bolink frontend.You can make the right adjustments (camber and caster).

So I ran it the other weekend.....really bad wheel hop in stock form. I went home and custom made a pod rear end with a pivot ball and links, and one center shock. Also made brass tubes for the front king pins to make it stronger too. I have not been at the track since to race it, but on the street, no more wheel hop and turns great!!!! Can't wait to try it. i'll let you know how it goes.....
