Steve
My Xray T1FK04 doesnt seem to have much rear grip how would I go about fixing this problem? Would changing the position of the sway bar make any difference? I have changed the position of the rear shock and has made a small improvement but still keeps spinning out of corners it has a a oneway diff in the front and a multi diff in the rear thanks

hi steve

What are inserts good for? Do you prefer sensor or sensorless motor? What are some good inrunner motors like neumotors except not that expensive? oh and how to get into programming mode for LRP

FX,

I never had an FK04...but I'll see what I can do for you

Are you running foam or rubber tires? I will assume rubber tires

I would say if you have a multidiff in the back that might be your problem... you need to run a regular diff! If you have a multidiff in the back...set to a one way or a spool...then you're not going to get any true differential action and as such it will be very difficult for you to put the power down.

Without knowing the rest of your setup it's really hard to say what you need to do ... I would make sure your suspension is free, the sway bars aren't bound up, etc.

Check the camber... try 1.5 or 2 degrees of camber in the rear

Make sure the sway bar is not too stiff... I'm not sure what size sway bars that car had... but I wouldn't run bigger than a 1.4 mm sway bar in the rear...in fact I'd try running something smaller for your situation.

hahaha

1.) Inserts are good for packing material when sending fragile parcels ... or for tuning how your rubber tires handle!

2.) Sensored!

3.) no idea

4.) press and hold the "mode" button... you should see the LEDs start to blink

Hope this helps!

Thanks for explaining. Is the GTB especially prone to this problem for some reason? Is it the regulator that smokes?

Actually this can occur with a number of other ESCs.... but the number of transistors in the GTB means that there are more possiblities for damage to occur.

It is the transistors that actually go bad, not the regulator.
