hi bbntc3,
What kind of battery are you running in your car, and where did you get it?

Thanks,
CJ DUDLEY

It's a 1150 Trinity Nickel Metal Hydride batt. You'd have to look on the Trinity Site for the Part#. It's the only 1150 flat pack they sell, most others are 1100. The feed wire is short on this pack and located in a different location . I think it's for some kinda Kyosho car. I buy and support my LHS. Most all my parts come from them. They have been in business here for over 40 years. Knowing the owners for 30 years also helps!

I can't believe no one has said anything about the receiver tray in the car being backwards. It just seemed odd with the ant. mounted on the tray, opening it the other way.

Man what a great piece of work.

How does the steering servo mount work?

I was going to comment on the ariel holder but i allready run hardcore chassis and top deck.(same type of setup)
I like the idea of the reversed receiver box,hinge seam running across the front should help a little with fuel stops(splashing).
Sorry Jim for the run around....
Hope you found somewhere close to your locale...

It has nothing to do with chassis, just my error! Hell the Hitec servos were all old and just spares,
I think all Hitec servos suck, wether it was my fault or not.
I have switched to Airtronics servos.

would you believe me If I told you I own over 20 Hitec Digitals(59 series)..and have never broken one of them..and that includes My Kania and veteq?

Just like the NTC3 car having no problems at all for ya Harry! You the best. You should be Barry's partner with a factory deal. The 5900's have been in the car since it came out, never broke them either, till now. Might have something to do with the sero mounted the other way, but I doubt it,. I have never owned a Hitec servo and had them last the full 2 year warranty with out breaking. But I race with them, sometimes 2 days a weekend from April till Nov. There not just sitting in cars on the shelves. The gears are'nt stripped they will work one way but won't center or work in other direction. I have some 5600 series too, they are no better than the 600 series Hitec servos. BB

You said it..



But,I will tell you one thing.

this car does need more maintenance than other cars...The diffs need re lubing after 15-20 tanks....

Sone freinds of mine have stripped gears(teh white ones) with teh solid axle.....In fact,one guy crashed in a 3 car mellee,and broke the 2 sp shaft.....

I think alot of the problem is teh direct drive of teh shaft system...

but,the maintence IS easy..and the car is so damn fast,I don't mind it..

Although this is not a hitec thread,i must say that i personally wouldn't put any of them in any of my cars anymore.It's true they have a good warranty thing going but that isn't going to fix my car after it has lost it's front end or win me that race that i lost due to the servo that made up its mind that it doesn't want to centre anymore.

The only one of there servos that i didn't have any trouble with was the 925 anolgues but it wasn't in one of my race cars nor was it used very long.

PS:Harry,teh is spelled the -no offence.

The 2speed shaft broke do to the flemsy flexy chassis, driving the direct drive driveshaft into the 2 speed shaft. I'll also bet if you check the broken shaft car either the front or rear chassis braces are also cracked or busted where they bolt too the diffs. I've heard it all in the NTC3 forum. Why talk about the car maintance or lack of here. What's that got to do with the BMI chassis? Have you ordered a chassis yet?

The 925 Hitecs were actually the best Hitec servo I have used too. I was asked by a long time dirt racer friend once,( why you think Hitec has a 2 year warranty?)
Enough said.

Jim,
Thanks for your time and patience.
Can't wait to get the chassis and test against the hardcore...
I hate to be a pain but i have a couple of questions i would like answered...please

1..What does BMI stand for...
2...Do i need to put extra "o"rings under the fuel tank? Foaming?
P.s. No laughing at the motor when i get around to posting some pics....

Terry

Hi XRAY, BMI stands for Breiner Machine, Inc., here's a link to the website and picture of the CNC machine The Chassis is made on...http://www.breinermachine.com/haas_vf5_cnc_50.htm . Personally, I lkie running o rings under the tank even though it's not very effective, but I've never had running problems from foaming anyway. No laughing, whatever gets you around the track, it's all good!
