In case anyone's interested, I poseted my latest rubber tire carpet set up on the JRXS rubber tire carpet thread. I don't see much rubber tire carpet talk on here, so I thought I would try to spark the discussion. The set up is definitly a work in progress, so if anyone tries it, I'd welcome feedback.

I ran my setup again but this time at a really small and tight carpet track and it worked great again. I redid it so it's easier to read this time for anyone that wants to try it.

Hey, that's all I had
I don't think I've bought a bottle of shock oil in years, these TC's use so little oil and don't need to be rebuilt that often.

Has anyone else had a problem with belts flipping inside out (teeth out, smooth side on the pulleys) during a run? My rear belt has done it a few times, and I can't figure out why. I tightened it up, and it seemed to help for a while, but Saturday it flipped on me again. It doesn't seem to hurt the car when it happens (running rubber tire stock at least), but it can't be good for the belt. Any one else have this happen? Any ideas to prevent it from occuring?

Only thing I can think of is either your belt is too loose or something is rubbing against it. You should only have a little bit of play in your belts

this might sound retarded but....

1. make sure the belt(s) track correctly nothing binding or any thign on it's path.
2. make sure your diff is not shifting left or right. the gray plastic tube has a tendency to shift slightly left and right easy fix is that tiny 2-56 buttom screw mount them on the inside rather than the out side. This will hold that tube in place and prevent it from shifting
3. Check the belt teeth make sure they are perfectly uniform (not too perfect but they all should be uniform)
4. check the pullies make sure there is nothing wedge in the coggs causing the belt to skip or make sure that the side walls of the pully is not portruding or pinching the belt.
5. belt tension is the key but i think your drive train is shifting around on you.

I had the front and rear diff shift around almost 1mm of play my center shaft has 1mm of paly right now i have sinced shimmed it all out.

hope this helps.

Default Teamwork? Holly moly!

Anyone in here going to the Snowbird (inter-?)Nationals? It'd be really helpfull if we knew one another were down there to share setup info and bounce new ideas around.

So who's going?

New Jersey, short for Englishtown. Sadly, this track that many of us grew up at closed down after more than twenty years of racing. Since the days when slot cars were bigger than R/C, that place had some of the best action on the east coast.

Sounds like some portion of the thrust bearing/washer assembly isn't doing it's job. Take that thing apart again, looking for signs of abnormal wear or mis-assembly.
