what does that give you if you move your camber links to the inside hole in the rear

Well, the link did work and I ordered the part. It didn't say the part was on back order so we will see. I was told by RC Champ that it was out of stock from Kawahara. I hope they have one in stock.

Default battery installation on the upgraded chassis

Hello all,
I am waiting the upgraded chassis for the RRR and I wonder what is the optimal way to install the battery. Since this chassis does not have the "hole" for the battery plate, I suppose I have to install the battery directly onto the chassis. I thought the "glass" tape, which is used in the electric cars to hold the batteries but I am afraid of the fuel and the battery is under the tank. I am also thinking silicon. What do you recommend? Thanks

The glass tape for electric cars works fine. Just make sure you tape it tight and go around it 10 times or so. The fuel will wear out the adhesive slowly over time but by then it should be time for you to take the car apart and clean anyway.

I was wondering the same thing. It looks like it would be quite difficult to wrap strapping tape around the battery 10 times as you cannot feed the roll thru the slot. When taping batteries into my 1/12 I only wrap the tape once. Do you think a combination of tape (2 or 3 wraps) along with some shoe goo would hold it?

I think it changes the roll center but I don't know if it raises it or lowers it.

The holes are big enough for it. Just keep going until it's even with the chassis. I also use double sided tape as it comes with the chassis.

it will allow the rear to roll more therefore giving you more traction at the rear

You would think so but in fact I have experienced the opposite. The steel pinions do not get sharp edges so they do not wear the spurs.

It does lower the roll center but on a track producing no grip it wont add any traction. Total opposite.

With tracks that arent producing grip you need to go back to rubber touring basics and raise the roll center and stand the shocks up to get grip.

Instead of the double sidded tape, I am going to use shoe-goo. I don't think the fuel will attack it.? That is if it ever showes up.

A longer link will always give more traction. As long as you don't reduce the camber angle, there will be an increase in grip. A matter of leverage.

Standing the shocks up by moving the lower mount to an inner hole on the arm, not on the shock tower. Again, a matter of leverage.
