Thanks, my Winternats went pretty good till the finals day. LOL

Was leading the sedan until my tire choice showed to be a bad one (my fault). Paul ran a great race. 1/8 I think I could have finished 2nd, but Ralph looked good all week. I hit a car early in the race and that killed my body and the car was never the same after that. Both my cars were good though and it was a really competitive year.

Questions?? Pivot balls

Are the pivot balls for the uprights in the C-801 kit steel or something else. I see they list part numbers as follows CAP1604 or CAP1604S or CAP1604T. I know the S is for steel and the T is for titanium. What is the CAP1604 listed in the kit made of?

The ones in the kit are made out of steel. Don't know about all the various part numbers.

Small update regarding my 2012 car.

Pretty much completed the car, only waiting on the new clutch which should be available within 2-3 weeks.

Fitted the rear flex system, I'm very interested what this does on the track.
Also drilled two additional holes just in front of the radio tray supports, these will be used to mount weight. Right now it looks like the car will weigh around 2350g so I needed some extra spots to mount the weight.



New carbon rear upper arm holders, these use the new roll centre insert which is also used by the C02. Simply gives you even more setup options.



Drilled another hole in the chassis so I'm able to mount the exhaust to the chassis instead of the radio tray. Since the radio tray is able to flex I thought it would be better to mount the exhaust like this. The WCE chassis already comes with this extra mounting hole.



With the new longer spring you're also able to mount the exhaust floating. By mounting it in rubbers it doesn't transfer any vibrations to the chassis and it also improves the exhaust's resonance which in order should also increase power.



Front flex system, for even more flex. Should provide a good amount of steering since the front end can move quite a bit.
It's also possible to mount the duomi bars together with the front flex option but I don't know how this will work on the track. Still have a lot of testing to do with the C801.




Front wire anti rollbar, must have option if you ask me since it makes setting up and getting the car balanced much easier. Used some 4mm shims so I could get rid of the blade stabi holders.



Fitted an exhaust cooler under the tray since it seems a pretty common thing in 1/8.



The Orcan GT7 engine is my engine of choice for the 2012 season. Have some high expectations from this engine.



New parts which still need to be mounted, the new coated 2-speed axle and the new one way. Want to save these parts for racing weekends. Also the front axle eccenters. Really interested in what these do in terms of setup so I will put those on the car once I'm happy with the overall balance and when I've tested the other new parts.



Overall view, still some minor work to do, but the car is basically ready to hit the track.

good job

but page 33 of the manual instruction is not correct.

the Cap 2096 is in upper position on the manual.

the good position is under if you want +1 UP default setting

The WCE chassis don't comes with this extra mounting hole ? the new spring support is screwing on the rear arm support ...just enlarge the hole and a 12mm screw

Excellent work ... what kind of belts are you using? An update of the ones included in the kit, or? Look like kevlarbelts.

Kind regards; Jens

It's not that the manual is wrong...they are showing just the right side steering block assembly upside down so people could see in better detail.....I know it could be a little bit confusing if attention is not paid to it.....:-)

These are some low-friction belts made by MBL, same company which makes the low-friction belts for the C02. Wanted to give them a try, see if they are reliable. Don't know if Capricorn will release them but if they work they can be ordered through my shop.

Thanks to you posting all the pics of the build, I'm now $785 less in my bank, and this is just as I finished building my new Kyosho Evolva. But I must say, this car is absolutely awesome, all the cnc alloy components just put it in a class above the rest. Dissapointed I purchased the Evolva now.

Now Capricorn Australia, hurry up and get in the warehouse and select that box and send it out to me, I can't wait any longer, I have to have it.

Edit
In fact I think Peter should put the kit in the back seat of his car and drive down to Albury tonight and give it to me so I have it now.

Just got my C801 today, and has just opened the box. Could' not wait anymore

It certently looks grat, and the different bags dont weight much (except the bag with the screws (steel)).

I can se the mainshaft is the new black coated, and the chassis is the WC-edition ... and it has a extra hole for the exhaustspring holder ... maybe more when I get the bags opened

Running changes. Thank you very much Capricorn - SUPER.

I have not opened the bags yet, but I guess it soon will come.

Best wishes ... Jens Roland

Yes great changes, but it's not fair for those of us who have the earlier kit versions, I love all the extra graphite bits on your car DS, especially the alloy servo arms, what brand are they, do you know if they are the same size as a Savox splines.

I have an issue with the centre belt and cannot fix it. I screw the belt tensioner all the way into the mount, fit the tensioner and circlip, then fit the belt and it rubs hard up against the mounting pin and bearing. I can't move the pulleys out further as you would know, but there is no way I can move that pin in either, any suggestions.

Edit
I should also add, why does your brake actuating rod fit that way, if I have the rod coming out the bottom like that it sits hard and the spur gear and would wear the spur gear in no time.
Cheers

For the side belt issue, take the middle shaft adapter and flip it. To do this, take off the 29 pulley, unscrew the 2 screws and flip the red piece. I made this same mistake. It is actually longer on 1 side than the other. This will fix your issue most likely.

For the brake linkage, I actually put mine opposite so that it comes out the top and then make a bend to line it up with the servo arm. This work perfect.

The servo arms are made by 3racing, they are available for all servo brands. Savox uses a 25T spline if I'm not mistaking.

Like DJ said check if the middle axle eccenter is mounted correctly.
The belt should run along the floating tensioner like this:



I've mounted the brake lever more towards the outside in the throttle/brake servo arm so it runs past the spur gear.
