Default just got me an 09!, initial thoughts and Q's

Hi all,

Have an 09 in my hot little hands (thanks bundy!)

Initial thoughts -

Well made plastics, no bling, all business!

Things I like -

Compared to my other two cars (both G4S), i like the strength of the power transmitting components, the larger diameter motor clutch, larger dia 2 speed clutch shoes, the larger dia spurs, all should mean less wear and tear with the higher HP motors.

Weight savings -
Like the narrow chassis, smaller side and top bulkheads, smaller narrower diffs etc.

Lots of roll centre adjustment!

Not so keen on -

Injection molded hexes, I clocked mine over in the stubs by hand inside the hubs and sure enough i can visibly see the runout, I dont care so much about the material of construction but hexes should be machined end of story. 0.1mm runout at the hex will be like 1.0mm runout at the tread face!

Bearings, these look to be metal shielded but mine have more resistance to rolling than I'd like (packing grease?), should I wash out in solvent and reoil with low viscosity oil?

Other than that any assembly tips? I oiled my 2 speed oneway (was bone dry) and set the shift point higher so the 1.5mm dimension is now approx 0.5mm, anything else i should do?

Cheers and sorry for all the Q'S.

Are you serious 1704 grams no lipo for me ,for sedan 1725 grams is the weight required for Roar.Is this 1704 with full size tires, are using 1/8 body clips.Man is was planning on getting the Twister prolights with these it would shave 20grams off the car making the car weigh 1684 grams.This will make really fast being so light.Imagen adding a lipo to the car with Twister prolights.

My car is 1741 with my regular setup which includes 2 1015 acer metal servos full tank, full size wheels and heavy body shell. I can easily bring it down below 1700g specially because the body that I weighted has over 4OZ of paint

Hi Ari, good to hear you had a good day with your car for the first time out. I've got a quick question though. Do you normally use a thinner oil in the front? Or was that just for moorebank?

Hi guys,

I am looking for a piece of advise here...

Please take a look at the vertical lines on the diff cover...


http://img33.imageshack.us/img33/2204/hpim0641h.jpg

Those are cracks that have not torn apart yet, but I am afraid they can.

Back when I used my RRR I had to tighten up my diffs at a point that is very close to what you see in the picture, warpage of the cover included. It was the only way to stop leaking diff silicon.

But with the G4RS 09, that seemed to be too much. Now I do not know how to stop my leak problem, and I need to use new parts if it ends up being I do not have to tighten up so far.

Please tell me how you have used yours, as I have not seen one negative comment or bad experience with your diffs...
