you are right even if you used the correct spacers you have to trim a little bit of the servo horn and i already trim most of it and still touches the receiver batts will try to dis-assemble and re assemble it again today

If possible try and move the receiver battery as far back as it will go and hopefully this will provide a little extra clearance.

Here`s a pic of the 9451 steering servo on my RRR and the clearance between it and the receiver battery (sorry about the low quality pic).......the receiver battery is the red section.

I was also wondering whats the best way to set your track width?

But i was also reading somewhere that the best way to do it was to measure from the chassis to the hub for both Left and right... which is the best way to measure it and the best way to go about doing it - or is what i'm doing the easiest way?
Nothing wrong with measuring from the arm to the hub. I dont really worry what the dimension is intitially as long as its the same on both sides. After the car is fully built then i put it on the setup board and adjust it so the track width is 199mm. After this is done i basically never touch the lower pivot balls unless the car has copped a hit.

I have never popped a bone on the RRR at this track width, even 200 mm would be ok, however i have seen accident damage cause bones to come out.

my WC kit comes with the tensioner, i don't know whether the standard kit comes with it or not. If not maybe you may want to consider getting the tensioner.

Its normal for the standard kit. The belt tensioner setup on the WC kit seems the best option to get it to clear the exhaust manifold. If you scroll back a few pages in this forum you`ll see some pics of how its different to the standard kits.
Tensioning the mid belt tighter can help a little bit with clearance, but i took out the Dremel and "shaved" a little bit off the underside of the exhaust manifold.......even with doing this there`s still some minimal rubbing.
Cheers

Hi Andy,

Do you know which bearing is protectively sealed away from dust, coz here in dubai, as you will expect "dUsty". If you can give me some part number of all the size of the bearing used in RRR, by the way i have the WC Edition.

Thanks.

Hi Bulletdays...
I`m not really too sure which bearing would be best to use under very dusty conditions....the conditions we race in here tend to not have a great deal of dust, yet somehow the bearings still seem to attract it like a magnet.
Acer Racing seem to have a good variety of bearings, so it may be worthwhile to send them an email and ask their opinion of what bearing would work well in your conditions:-
www.acerracing.com
One bearing to keep a close eye on, is the small clutch bearing (5 x 8 x 2.5).......this bearing is very small and operates in a very harsh environment, being out of sight it`s easy to neglect it.
I`ve had one of these bearings "die" on race day and the metal shards from it also trashed the thrust bearing.....keep it clean and well lubed and it should be okay.
I always keep a spare of this bearing, as well as a spare thrust bearing in my toolbox.
Cheers
