What's up. Raul.

Are you done racing with Power Racing or are you done racing 1/8?
Or, are you done racing completely?

Say it isn't so...

I had to park mine, until I get a DSM. The glitches were so bad I was afraid to drive it. There's just nothing more painful than having to helplessly watch your car hit the wall @ 40-50 mph...

Love my spektrum! Have not had one single problem since I had them updated. Especially nice at larger events, practice whenever there is enough room on the stand! Some of the heats, in Detroit last week, were entirely DSM!

It's starting to look that way around here as well. I used to make the joke, "why bother upgrading, when everybody else is on DSM". I'll be the only racer left on 75 mhz...hehe

Default BRONZE ROLLCENTER BUSHINGS

BRONZE ROLLCENTER BUSHINGS???

Who has installed them? They look like the could slid out due to all of the vibration. Any have this problem, and if so how do you keep them in place?

Thanks Kevin

They go in just like the plastic ones. The flange is on the inside, the arm keeps it in place. There is no place for it to go.
However, glueing the bushings in place (bronze or plastic), strengthens the bulkhead. ca glue works fine--be careful to get it in place quickly!

LOL, thanks for the info. I wondering what would be a good fix. It just slides in and out easy, and i didn't want the brass to end up on the street. The plastic ones, no problems. Thank you all.

Sounds like you have your eccentric bushings mounted on the outer portion of the front bulkhead. They are suppose to be mounted on the inner side of the bulkhead. See photo for details. Hope this helps.

Whoa. Let me understand something. Your top front arm doesn't move back and forth along the rod. From the Picture, it looks stationary. You are right, I had the bushing on the outside. Thanks for the pic.

Thanks,

Nevermind to that question, I installed them properly. They tighten that upper arm up real nice. Once the sun goes down a little, I'll run her again. Thanks again for everything.

Took it out tonight, I'm impressed, it shoots like a rocket. Matter of fact, so well, 2 of the clutch shoes came out. Interesting never heard about it before. What would cause just 2 shoes to come out?

My O.S. screams.

Something else that happened. The bearing inside the clutch bell self destructed. Any tips to prevent self destructing?

While running the car today, I couldn't get the car to jump into 2nd gear. Any words of encouragement?

Has anyone changed the gears, and if so, what were your results?

Thanks for everything.
