Default ESC Mounted on top of rear plate above batts

Hi all

Has anyone tried mounting an esc that is larger than say a Quantum Comp on the top rear deck? I have plenty of space but unsure of hhow to run the batt and motor wires. The motor wires can be run down the center of the front top deck and then secured by ziptie and then soldered to the motor. That should work fine.

The problem is the Battery. I was thinking of dropping a Corally/Trinity tube down by the back opening in the top deck and then another in the front. Has anyone tried using tubes mounted vertically instead of Horizontal?

The other choice may be to run the wires around the belt and then onto the general tube mountings.

Any thoughts?

Thanks

Mounting anything up there would raise the CG, not exactly a desireble side effect. I was forced to run a G-11 up there ONCE because it was a borrowed esc from a 1/12 car and it's receiver wires were really short.

Default Set up help

Hi all, greeting from England.

I need to find some more off power steering. I am running 19 turn outside on damp tarmac and the temp is about 7 9 degrees C.

My set up is as follows

f & r diffs high
Shock towers low
41f/42r
Spool front and center
Mazda 6 shell

Front
4-degree caster
0 toe in
5mm ride height
1.5 degree camber
40w oil kit piston and bladder
1 white o-ring above bladder
Spring 25
High roll center with the thick spacer
1-degree front pivot
Front shock no 2
Camber no 2
Arm spacer middle
Droop height 2 on the gauge

Rear

3-degree toe in (1 on the hub)
5.5mm ride height
1.5-degree camber
35w oil with kit piston and bladder
1 white o-ring above bladder
20 spring
Camber link 5 / a
Shock top 3, bottom outside
Low roll center

Any thoughts on what would be the best place to start?

Thanks

Hmm... off power steering.. id say a diff would give you that over a spool.. but you may loose other attributes you like.

I dont know why everyone is running the front roll center higher than the rear on this car. It seems to me that it causes the front to plow around. I tried some oddball stuff this past weekend, but the one thing i did like was a higher rear roll center. It seemed to make the front end roll before the rear and inturn gave the car a more positive feel.

On rubber tires though, im not sure you would need that much dive.. and may be better off with same height RC all around..

Have you tried low roll centers on rubbers? what was the result?

and finally... DUDE 3 degrees rear toe???? (jk)... seriously though.. i dont think i have EVER run more than 1.5 degrees... that is what i would start with.. along with adding .5 degree of toe out in front..

keep in mind.. i have all of two race experiences with this car on rubber.. from last summer and granted, the car was dialed both times and won.. i dont rememebr what i was running... and about a month of carpet... (since december) so i am still learning.

Keith, the XXXS was awesome on foam when you cut the rear blocks down .080 from stock. I think a lot of people carried that thinking forward.

I used to run like that, but I have also switched to running a slightly higher (+.035) rear roll center. The car has been good this way. At one point I was running the rear in the high roll center position with a small spacer under both blocks, but all the car would do is turn in and plow mid- out. With the front camber mod, it may be something to play with again, considering the additional mid-out steering you get.

YES!!!!! YES YES...

the car did just suck comming out of the turns.. but my JR links broke at novak... ill have to make some more... fantastic... PLUS... when i dropped to a 25lb spring (from 30).. it would "dig' too much.. this may neutralize it...


I was at .035 under the rear blocks and the car was progresing.. this weekend I tried full high and finally got some of the front roll out of it i wanted.. now to get it to finish the turn.. JR links it is...

I always like the XXXS in full low. F/R...

Hilarious, I used to run 30 or 35 lb springs with the real high rear roll center. It was decent (like .2-3 off the fast pace) at my track (insane bite), but at Vegas -instant migranes. Wish I knew about the camber mod at that race, prolly would have done OK. Lately it seems to work better w/the front RC slammed.

i think this weekend i am just going to go back to 30's and look for dive elseware.. it was too much of a jump- i felt.

The car will still need some on power so.. now i have some ideas..
