Default I need help/advice

Got the rrr kit, fixing it and i am facing problems now.

It's the direction for the throttle servo connecting to the brake & engine arm. Example, when i hold on to throttle on the tx the direction of the servo turns towards the front which is engaging the brake and closing the air-in-take for the engine.

I am using M8 tx/rx and my servo is sanwa(airtronnics) rs-991.

I have checked with pictures posted by Prawntoe and my direction and placement of the servo is exactly as in the pics.

Any comments, help or advice will be appreciated.

You have your servo on reverse

Scroll through your M8 menu and find servo direction and put your throttle servo to normal and it should work fine.

I am going to buy the anti-electrical tape from Yokomo. They call it a "noise killer set. Whatever. I'm also going to stop by Airtronics next week and have them look at my radio because the blue LED broke. Looks like the gods are telling me to go back to KO.
Try moving it to the front bumper mount area, also check you do have it plugged in the right way round
(I have seen it plugged the other way and the interferance is not pretty)

Default RRR with 710 ball diff, is that possible?

I don't know if it's possible, that's why I asked...

Both of them using 12x18mm bearing, width from bearing to bearing unknow (I don't have both of them to measure). Total width from cup to cup unknow, but RRR seems wider.

RRR rear gear ratio 42/21
710 rear gear ratio 45/24

By changing pully and tire diameter it should get a similar gear ratio. So the problem is on width. One with narrower bearing to bearing width should able to seat in other's bulkhead with some 12x18 shims. And if cup to cup is wide enough it should be function correctly (unless the CVD ballhead size is very different).

So.. is that possible to let RRR has a ball diff? or let 710 has a gear diff?

your tank is leaking. you need to either:

1)run a soldering iron around the seam of the tank to sort of "re-seal" it, also buying the revised topdeck which stops tank leaks would help

or

2) buy a new tank and the revised topdeck

also after reading the review of the IFMAR 200mm NT worlds in RCCA, i was interested to find that in the A main the pressure line came of both david spashett and josh cyruls car. i have also encountered this problem, with the pressure line coming off for no apparent reason at all. how many people have also experienced this problem??

thnx

I'd bet that the lid of the tank leaks.

Put the tanks under water and give it a pressure test, you'll soon know.

The performance is ok, its just that the idle becomes higher after 3-5 laps of running.

Ok il try to see if theres a leak in my tank.

If your happy that the tune seems ok once it's up to temp (hard to tell for sure if your not there) but after only a few laps of the warm up it just runs on and nothing you do seems to help, I'd guarantee you it's the tank lid.

My car would do exactly the same thing.

I ran it today with some seals that I made myself and it tuned perfectly and didn't run on once all day.

I haven't come up with a good use yet for the standard seal, but I'm sure someday it maybe useful for something because it sure doesn't work in the tank lid :-)

If your tank is ok - I would say that your lower needle is too lean.
If you're ever unsure, richen it - too lean can damage an engine, so it is always best to start out with it being too rich.
Also make sure that your idle isn't set too high.

A method I use to check the lower needle is a so called "pinch" method. Make sure you've put in a few good hard laps to get everything warmed up (chassis included) then bring your car into the pits - pinch the fuel tubing to where it enters the carb. If the engine dies straight away, then the lower end mixture is too lean. If the revs rise, this means the mixture is rich.
Ideally when you pinch the tubing, the engine revs should rise for about a second and then die off.

This is still just a "ball-park" method and will get you closer to the best setting. Best of all get someone from your track who knows how to tune a motor to set it up for you.

Cheers, Mark.
