Post How to handle and charge/decharge the battery

Hey,

I like to know from somebody how i can get the best performance from
my battery (intellect 4200).
I see that the fresh EU champ is running a LRP 3.5t and it seems that
he running the full 300sec. with out any problem?
Please explain to me how this works, i like to learn.

Hey Ed, you also here!

I think you're better off asking it in another thread.
But anyway, From my personal point of view I would say there are more factors involved to make the runtime with such a motor.
The biggest factor will be the drivingstyle. How efficient you can drive, like at the end of the straight letting the car roll rather than pushing it towards the corner at full throttle. I always keep in mind the "smooth is fast" method, but other things like gearing and track layout can also have a huge effect on your runtime. If you run on a wide open track where you drive a lot on full throttle you will save energy, instead off on a let's say technical indoor carpet track where have to drain a lot of energy out of the batteries because you have to accelerate more.
We'll probably discuse on this subject further tommorrow on the track.

Less droop(arms closer to bottom of chassis) more steering higher droop less steering.

Read the manual and just try one extreme of droop to the other and see what you think.

This car is probably the car with the most amount of front traction available as to why not enough steering. It will most likely be a droop issue.

Droop is at 5mm in the rear, 4.5 in the front

What rollcentre,s are you using, a lower one can also help the setups that we read for Hara, Andy Moore etc are more than likely on tracks with higher traction than us club racers race on.

Try 4mm on the rear droop it will give more weight transfer to the front should help you.

It depends if you want more inital steering or more mid corner steering.

Positive 0.5 to 1 will give more inital steering less mid corner \ /

Level,flat or | | balanced

Negative -0.5 will give more mid corner steering less inital / \

High speed track I would say try toe out (positive) first

Cyclone racers I have a quick question, I am having problems with my rear tires wearing on the outside even with a 2.5 neg camber the tires still wear faster on the outside than the inside, on most of the TC cars I have race the wear is on the inside but the Cyclone wear on the outside, is there anyone that is having this wear problem? and if so what did you do to get it wearing on the inside? thank you.

Mine in the rear seem to be doing the same thing. I'll have to keep a closer eye on it.
