I haven't. Only if there has been moisture on the track, then yes.

the white lithium grease from kyosho is what you are looking for, wd40 is not designed to be a lubricant it is meant to disperse water. the white stuff does attract dust if your running on a less than clean track though so there is more maintenance to keep the wear down.

Motor and clutch info:

NOVAROSSI 353 murnan mod
2630 pipe with long header (6 ring)
sirio clutch with .7 gap
.4 end play
I used red(serpeant shoe).
gearing is 17/23 and 60/55

This was a medium bite track. Very flowing and high speed. There will be a few things that I will change for the US OPen next month.

1. A lighter rear sway bar.
2. dark blue springs

The car felt and handled pretty good. If you plan on coming to the US Open this set-up will be a good base to start with.
3.5 tow for front???
The only reason I'm asking is because I normally see anywhere from 0 to 1.5..

I am the one with the Kyosho that Big Jeff asked about the stripping gear problem. It caused me fits at the Roar nationals an also a couple of weeks ago at Kissimee. Once I got back home after Kissimee I was bound and determin to find something causing the problem.I started taking the motor out of my car and once I had it out, I picked up the car holding the front and the rear of the chassis and tried flexing the chassis to see if something was loose, and thats when I found what I beleive to be causing it.The screw connecting the brace to the rear radio tray mount was just loose enough to let the chassis flex under pressure.Hopefully my gear stripping troubles are over.I ended up putting a longer screw in and putting a 3mm locknut on it to secure it.

Chassis, radio tray, and the servo saver/ackerman. Also, the 2-speed and the 2nd gear itself, the rear offset on the new car is zero so you would have to buy new rear CVD/dogbones.

You can upgrade by buying the parts.

Steve, Dru I will be down there also. Just come see me and I will help. Few things to check now while your at home is to make sure there's not anything bent or binding in your drivetrain to include your chassis. This includes all bearing and shafts in the car being clean and free moving.

Thanks Blount and Steve.
I will for sure try these things before Dec 3rd. I have to fix this as it cost me the race at the fort and in kraceway. It's a good thing Kevin has the track opened from Tuesday the 2nd thru the rest of the week. This gives all of us 2-3 full days on working out all the kinks.
