Default Help!!

Hi I need help
I have just bought the K Factory carbon fibre top deck and the low CG fuel tank for my V one R and have just started putting servos in it but My reciever housing (where it holds the reciever)clashes with the low CG fuel tank? The seem around the tank just seems to prevent the holes marring up to each other am I doing soemthing wrong or is there some other part that I need? I saw earlier that AMGracer has the low CG tank and deck with the same reciver housing and his fits in. What am I doing wrong???

Thanks

Yes, The low CG tank is fairly wide under the top deck and intrudes into the receiver holder. You will need to modify/cut the receiver housing to accommodate it.
You'll save a bit more weight, too.

Thanks for that
thats what I was hoping not to hear. I am running with Futaba 3PJ radio gear I would have thought that I I did cut away some of the housing that it could then vibrate on the receiver and cause radio problem then? Ie thats why the reciever housing is isolated away from the rest of the chassis?

I'm sure it will be fine - everyone using this combo has had to cut the receiver holder.
A couple of things here . . .

Given that the receiver holder is vibration isolated from the top deck by virtue of the "O" ring mountings, theoretically you should be able to strap the reciever in firmly - ours is.

Secondly, be sure to cut sufficient material away so that the holder doesn't touch or have the potential to wear away at your new tank.

Remember, Kyosho didn't design with the low CG tank in mind. It may be possible to use the Reflex receiver holder if it really worries you.

Default Shortening Camber Link

How to shorten the camber link to 35mm from 40mm to accommodate the MTX-3 rear upright with 3mm spacers?
Change the ball end to shorter ones? do i use back the Kyosho 6.8mm ball end with 6.8mm pillow ball on the camber link?
thanks

Manticore,

I noticed your front suspension arms look different, anything special about them?

Also, I noticed in all the pics you guys post, no one seems to use the front overdrive with the softer belts. Is there a reason for this or is it just personal preference?? I found that after I switched the pulleys to 24t and the belts, my R rolls smoother and gets better top speed. Is there that big of a disadvantage with using the overdrive??? Please explain......

Basically the 24T conversion adds 5 tooth rollout to the internal drive train ratio (not sure what it is after the conversion). So on tracks that have a ling straightaway like 180+ ft, you dont have gear up massively to keep from winding your motor out. Of course this also depends on what motor you are running and how you are running it (i.e. Tune setup). I personally am running the 24T conversion with a 15/49 1st gear and 19/45 2nd gear at Revelation here in Southern CA. I was told that the internal ratio was like 2:1 but I am not sure. So the extra 5 tooth rollout is the reason why your top end looks easier to attain.

Default Gearing

By using the 15T/19T pinions with 48T/44T, i noted extra accelaration/pick-up.

But by changing the Spurs to 49T/45T with the same 15T/19T pinions, what have you gained from it? more top speed while maintaining good acceleration?

BTW, i am running the 25T Front Side pulley.

Thanks,

If you change to from 48T/44T spurs to 49T/45T spurs you will gain more acceleration and less top speed if you keep the same pinions

It's pretty simple to calculate the internal drive ratio;

Rear side
48T/24T = 2

or

Front side
32T/18T x 27T/24T = 2
