asd - your starter wheel should be rotating clockwise


Manticore I stand corrected on the collari - I guess it's a crap shoot on the picco carbs. I put a RB carb on the collari xs12 I was having problems with and 2 needle tweaks and it runs like a champ now.

I have a Picco carburetor in my Picco .12 RR. It always holds the needle settings accurately and is a breeze to tune. I am surprised I hear alot of people having trouble with them. Maybe Ernie is fiddling with the Picco carbs so people will buy his Rossis and Sirios!

Anyone see the new "Team Only" Reflex NT? It is going to have new "Gray-colored Stiffer Suspension Components". Does anyone think this is a good idea? Reflex owners have changed over to V1R parts since the "Black-colored" Reflex parts were too stiff and brittle. The V1R suspension components are a little more flexible and less brittle, so they do not break on impact. These new parts seem do be the opposite of what you would want to do. What do you guys think of this?

well from my understanding the collari's didn't go through ernie's shop. But anyways - I was with you racer rich thought it was just people who didn't know how to tune engines complaining about these carbs till I got hit with a bad one. I have another collari in a yokomo I got used from simulatedwood runs like a champ, never had the slightest of problems with it. It kinda sucks to spend 200 dollars on an engine and then still have to put another manufacturer's carb on it.

Yes, but the Picco carbs might do.

Just a FYI guys.

I ran my fairly new V1RR GT today after making some modifications. DAMN this thing is free in the drivetrain now.

I am using the Blue Bearings from ebay, the tobee craft shafts, v1rr pulleys, and the rubber belts. It is an absolute rocketship under acceleration, and I am still using the gear diffs at both ends.

Also using the Fantom Yellow springs this thing almost handles like an electric car now, no wash on cornering. An electric driver friend of mine drove it and had a grin from ear to ear. I finally got it to how I like it

Yes seems to be. By the old "feel" test the yellow fantoms (I got the correct ones for front and rear) are harder than the gold V1R springs. But not that much harder. If your track has heaps of grip available give it a go. If not then you will slide all over the place.

I have some of those blue bearings, was going to wait to install them when the stock bearings wore - but if they make that much difference I'm going to try them now.

Why did you not buy the used ritchey AMG?

No one runs solid axle front and rear?

Default Setup comments...

Hi Everybody...
Need some advice on my setup which i run my car on a small track with medium-high grip surface. Sometimes i just cant get any closer to other cars...i am wondering if there could be something wrong in my setup.
Ok, when i enter the corner and turn, the car rolls/ slides (in other word, 'run wide') and slow me down.

My setting is:

Front Geometry:
-Anti Roll bars -> 90 degree
-Camber L/R -> -3 degree
-Toe out -> 1 degree
-Front One-way
-Tyre 35 shore 6 spoke yellow Ellegi (26mm)
-Spring -> Stock
-Shock Oil -> Stock
-Front Shock Tower Not use
-Ride Height -> 5 mm
-Track Width -> 198mm
-Downstop -> -1

Rear Geometry:
-Sway bar -> Stock (black)
-Camber L/R -> -4 degree
-Toe In -> 2.5 degree
-Diff Gear -> Stock
-Diff Grease -> Tornado 100K
-Tyre 35 shore 6 spoke yellow Ellegi (30mm)
-Spring -> Orange (Kyosho)
-Shock Oil -> Stock
-Ride Height -> 6 mm
-5 Star Shock Tower -> Lowest Hole
-Track Width -> 200mm
-Downstop -> 5mm

Please comment on this setup...thanks in advance...

you get them from the seller named teambluestar on ebay.


Here is an auction for a set - closes in tonight

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=1762614719

He sells them in complete sets for all the popular kits so you dont' have to worry about the sizes.

FYI DO NOT get into a bidding war and pay more than 30 dollars for them - he's always putting out new auctions for them. I have heard good things about them but never actually installed them.

from what I see you have gone to a softer rear spring but still have the relatively stiff front black front spring, try a kyosho green spring in the front to allow more weight transfer to the front for more steering. You may get more steering than you want with the green in which case you could run a harder shore like 40 or 42 in the front tires.
