yeah, it has to be the problem...the car handled great the only time I raced it, but the drivetrain absolutely sucked....

Default Couple of questions

Finished off the Cuda, should get it's first outing on Wednesday.

There was a bag in with the kit containing four steel blocks about 12mm x 5mm x 5mm with two holes in each, any idea what they are??

Also on an earlier post there are some rear hubs in a lot of different colours. Does anyone know who makes them, where I can get hold of them, and how many degrees toe in they are??

Thanks

They are suppost to be spacers that go beteween the bulkheads and the shock towers they have to be installed or your shocks will be very agressive angles

Carlisle is a permanent track designed with electrics in mind so it's a good little track, I'm glad I'm getting the chance of racing there this Sunday
Just ordered my Pro Trak charger with temperature detect module should arrive tomorrow, although they don't guarantie it for Saturdays. Will have a nice purple heatsink now all I need is a purple Cuda to match it

It seems like Japan is going to be going to the 12T motor limit her for Mod racing real soon or it`s just that they 8min time limit with any lesser turn motor wont make the time

Time for a Reedy Krypton

12T is fast enough I think without maintanence getting too bad or speeds being unreasonable for all but the best drivers, just as long as the tracks aren't very nitro biased. The few nitro tracks we use are big even for nitro standard, and most of the corners don't even slow you down much, one is even designed with 5th scale able to run on it, although they use a slight extention.

I think most people here would struggle to make 8mins even with a 12T motor, some were almost dumping 3000's last year at the end of the 5 minute heats, gearing would be slightly on the conservative side even with 3300's to last 8mins.
