Default car

Any idea's if running the car setup with the esc in front of the motor will effect the car not having that weight in the back ??

Just calculated them for you...

Kyosho Blue are 346.5 gf/mm -- 19.4 lb/in
Kyosho Yellow are 326 gf/mm -- 18.25 lb/in
Kyosho Red are 308 gf/mm -- 17.25 lb/in

Of course they are theoretical values, however I found that comparing theoretical values with measured values has always been pretty acurate.

A Tchô !

All you need are the dimensions and a good formula...

Shame on me, I have both formula and dimensions when I ask!

k=(Gd^4)/(8nD^3), G = 81500 N/mm² for steel, D = spring diameter (measured mid-mid wire), d = wire diameter, n = nbr of coil.

On my way to hang myself!

you could try it, but i think you'd find most people would have the speedy in front of the motor, up to you really, i think in front would be better for the speedy cause it can get colder air to reduce thermal

I would definately go back to your owner manual and make sure you are following the directions..I have never had any problems with the knuckles binding..

I put a really thin shim under the ballstud to keep the knuckle tight without binding. I think I got it out of the Losi shim kit.

I have never had that problem sorry...Are you sure you are putting the knuckle on right. There is a Top side and a bottom side.. The Top side has the lower stub to the knuckle and the bottom side is the big stub of the knuckle..
