Good to see set-up info. That was Jimmy's car, correct?

Ran my car for the first time today, this thing screams. Have a couple of adjustments to make, but I like what I see. And the VZ-R II, the engine is unbeleivable. The just paved the street on my block. I'm like a kid in a candy store.

My question:

What the advantage to having a Rulon shoe?

Thanks.

The clutch shoe grabs earlier, and more consistent. I am glad you like the car and the VZ-RII. MY last race, I destroyed my crankcase, shearing off the exhaust flange. My car is a heap of parts right now....

Well, I have been experimenting with Li-poly packs, and decided to use no voltage reg on the receiver. This in turn fried two servos, not knowingly, the second decided to take a dirt knap at the top of the main straight 200'+ long. I turned the wheel and nothing happened but hitting a cement filled tire.... I will sort this out though.

Ah man...sorry to hear that. Mine suffered a similar fate, but only hit a 1x10 piece of unsecured wood...almost no damage. After reading the advantages and disadvantages of Li-Po power, I decided it wasn't worth the trouble...

R40, ther are no disadvantages running Li-poly's. They are lighter, stronger, and last longer(shelf life), than anything else out there. I think with the Novak Regulator, is the key

That's right! But you got lucky finding one that will fit in the space provided.

If they hadn't discontinued that one, I would have it in my car.

That's true, and I should have specified, "in my application". I understand the advantages, I even looked into the setup for myself. Like I said, not worth the extra effort for me. I still like the idea, I've become more interested in Li-Po since they're alot more common in recent years. If there was a specific part designed to fit my car and couldn't overpower the control system, I'd be all for it. Oh yah, I'd have to get a Li-Po charger too, just not worth it. If our races were alot longer, then it would be worth the investment.
