if you read the directions closely, it states to put the left side belt tensioner on the right side. now, if you put the left side on the left side, the belt is very loose.

I was playing with the RRR the other day at the local track....... and it was doing pretty good, until it was hit by another car and it cart wheeled in to the sand........ after a while i lost speed and the engine was revving and no speed at all.....

first i thought iwas a stone ........ then someoen said the clutch is gone......... later..... i found out that the rear belt had turned around... that means the teeth on the belt were on the outside. I was surprised at this. Was this a problem with the fixing or this happens? on the RRR.

Could i stop it from happening again ? waht should be done..

cheers

i have never had this happen before. read my post previous to this and that is probably your problem.

sorry but i do not have a pic. but in the manual, it is step number 19. the part numbers are 65 and 66. 65 says L on it but the manual says to put it on the right side. 66 says R on it but the manual says to put it on the left side. let me know if this makes sense.

For the belt to come loose like that it`d have to be a belt tension issue......i always run mine on tight and theyre fine.......you`ll see how to set this up page 15 of the manual (top right hand of section 19)
Also check you havent lost any teeth of the rear diff during the crash.
Cheers

I also have to query the manual.
The ball joint on the steering servo horn shows the ball on the servo side of the horn, but every time I put the steering to full lock (horn moving towards tank) the cup popped off the ball, I have now fitted the ball on the other side of the horn and it works perfectly with no stress points.
And as for that radio tray, just how long did it take for you all to get the wires tucked away? I redone it about 6/7 times before I felt it was right.
I'm just hoping the car performance makes all this aggro worth it.

but even if you put the belt on tight, if you have the caps that hold the bearings on the wrong sides, it will be loose... that's my point. also, you do not want to run the belts tight. you want to run it slightly loose. otherwise it creates resistance, drag. the car will not be free rolling.

NiMo, I have my link on the servo side of the horn like the manual suggested. It might be your horn is low profile and I am sure fitting on the other side works too. The other thing is this car has a lot more steering than the FW and you probably won't need as much steering travel.

On the wires, you can save lots of hassle if you do not use a switch and just plug/unplug the battery from the receiver. You can also shorten the servo wire by opening the servo case and re-solder the wires.

Yep for sure, if the tensioners are on the wrong side it will be way too loose.
When the belts are new I`ll run mine on loose, but as they start to wear/stretch I`ll go for more tension.

It took me a few hours to experiment and decide which was the best way to route the cables....I wanted all the cables away from the side of the car to minimise any damage in the event of a hit.
The throttle cable was easy, but the steering servo was harder. In the end i got an extension lead for the steering servo cable and routed it across the radio deck and then down the hole behind where the front belt meets the middle shaft, then routed it beside the receiver pack and brought it out near the flywheel and back into the receiver.......this has worked well and keeps the wiring out of view and quite neat.
Also had a friend who used a different method and used a braided type of mesh (not sure of its proper name but its used a lot in rc helicopters) as a duct for all his wiring and he just ran it over the top of his throttle mixer/linkages and back into the receiver.
I guess theres any number of ways to route the cable and everyone will have their own preference
Cheers

I have been researching this car on the net and it looks like a very good touring car. I have been looking around the net for it, but where is a good place to buy this car in the USA?
