Default setting up the the micro t FAST

I've got a good idea about the gears. the bushings wear fast on this thing. I have run mine until bald on smooth shiny ceramic floor. at lease 100 batt. runs.

point that I've done.

- added limiters on the bottom of the shock shafts. I used rubber shielding from small cable. like what's used by mini z upgraded motors. this stops the bouncing and doesn't bottom out. it also stops the stress on the steering links

- used the motor/esc plug for a charger adaptor and extra battery. I hardwired the battery.

- Break in the motor. and then the gearbox. I added tamiya molybdenum to the bushings. the first one only after there was some significant wear. it helped. the 2nd, right from the start. it works well.

Steering links,

this is the best pick. it's the biggest and it is the best thickness.

no clips on body, velcro
four small bits.

added a mini z antena as kept the original as well.

here's a video of my micro t.

Happy New Year

That track you made looks like a blast! I ordered 2 with bearings and extra parts off the bat. Time to get that old Ogauge train out and make a track for these lil' guys. I think a scale train hazard on a track would add hours of fun. Hmm maybe I should order more extra parts right off. P.S. thnx for the tips...
