I don't want to interupt with the arguement there but crashing is something Kyle doesn't do a lot of and as for car prep, you'd go a long way to find someone better.

I'm glad that you have never experienced a switch failure, the car being turned off due to a collision or a marshall inadvertantly turning your car off when he tries to do his job. But I have and so have a lot of other people I know who now don't use a switch as it just eliminates one more thing that can go wrong.

I wish I could trust a switch as it would be convenient but you learn from your mistakes, so no switch.

I'll have the right tires for both tracks, basically just wondering how good the setup is..

sorry, misread the post the RRR kit setup shouldn't be too far off for both tracks. the only thing you would probably want to adjust is the droop settings. flatter for rev and oposite for crystal.

Francis is right, droop is the most drastic change between the two tracks. You want a lot of droop at Crystal. I was running 1 in the rear and -1 in the front last time at Crystal Park.

I`ll second that.....I`d rate Kyle up there in the top echelon of racers in this country and you dont get to that level by not having an understanding of how to wire/setup/ etc etc a car.

Hey Guys...

Couple of questions for you today

1st... I am using a Futaba 9550 low profile servo for the steering and i have used the 1mm spacer behind the servo. I noticed today that at the end of the travel the servo horn seems to rub on the top deck??? Should i have used the 2.5mm spacer instead?

2nd...

As i am going to be running on rubbers tyres, i have changed the front pulley over to the 24T with the corresponding belt... But it is very loose, and i am worried about it skipping.

Look forward to seeing some responses..

Hey bundy bear

i have used both futaba s9550 and s9451 and the 2.5 mm spacer works best as it gives enough clearance from the top deck opening.

i to am using the 24T side pulley but i run foams and i use the 387T belt and although it does seem abit loose but really its fine as when the car is being acccelerated the belt actually tensions as it rotates. Some will tell you to run the side belt as loose as possible to free up the car, a more efficent drivetrain equals more top speed, better fuel economy and lower engine temps

Are u still with the NTC3?
Yup, still with my NTC3. Still working well for me. Tips, when driving 1 way, brake earlier and also power out earlier. Dont pump the gas like pink, do it smoothly and very importantly to take good racing line. Before running in a race, walk around the track or plan your racing line before racing.

try rcmart.com or shopping.rcmodel.hk

they ship anywhere around the globe and they're the cheapest place you can find hop-ups for Asian products.

Actually I was quite worried about driving one-way on belts with antiroll bar for the first time...never had the experience of driving on one-way and arb when I was with my NTC3. But last Thursday I got the chance to run the RRR properly at Glenmarie, the results was very satisfying. Before that run, I actually practised driving with the one-way on VRC... ...it helps! I managed to follow the pace of Chua and Pink on that track, which was also my very first time running there...the car IS good!
