Default Tweak Problem

Quote:
markp27 Andre, check section 4.3 in the FAQ in my signature - there are some tips about how to overcome binding suspension.

If the FAQ tips don't make a difference, then for the front, try removing the smallest caster clip and see if the suspension still binds.
Also check to see that the alu adjusting nuts in the steering blocks and the rear uprights aren't too tight - this would cause binding on the pillow balls.

Don't be tempted to start removing material from the suspension arms, etc. until all other causes are eliminated - the fit of the parts should be very good and not give any problems with binding.

Cheers, Mark.
Thanks I just checked and I did have some binding in the front and rear not my next question should I get a tweak bar to like the one from Integy (http://integy.automated-shops.com/cg...07104240311.7a)
I already have the setup blocks and the Hudy board....

Thanks for all help on here

Well, if you're going to start racing seriously then do get it ... especially if you race with rubber tyres.

Some of the more experienced folks here (Pyramid, goldfinger, D ...) use a different tools I think ... its a sharp object they poke somewhere near the middle of each end and lift the end to see which tyres go up first.

If you race foams I think this is fine because usually by the third lap of any race one side of your tyres are wearing more anyways ... hence your car is actually "tweaked"!

That's the method I use.

Anyone planning on trying out the KO Propo 2363 and 2364 servos?
KO Propo said the specs are the same as the 2343's and 2344's.
The new servos is just the heat-sink versions.

Ah, nowadays she's slowed down a little. I guess it's the age. Only common parts are available. Special option parts rarely come by.

Well, you've got to give the old folks a chance to play catch up. Kind of giving them some encouragement. Else, they'll surely be relegated to driving lawnmowers.

Do servos really get hot that they need heatsinks? I believe Sanwa / Airtronics started with them.

I would want waterproof feature more than a heatsink feature.

If he set it as per stock (i.e. 200 mm front and rear), there should not be a problem with the dogbones binding.

I think he should check the pivot ball cap retainers like what Mark has suggested. May be a little tight. Also check on the rear sway bar if there is no binding there.

A fuel proof receiver would be better.
I hate robbing kids at birthday parties for their balloons.
