Im about to buy a new kit (just to try cause im still competitive on my Yokomo GT4W2L) and i was "almost clear" with the Hpi R40 .... but now it comes to my mind the Mongoose and the success that it have in Europe ...

Is this car suitable to run on RUBBERS (the only exception to the actual IFMAR rulebook that we apply) ? ...

Can anyone give me a complete vision about this kit ??

thanks !!

You may have to print these off and use them , however, they turned out pretty good !!!!
If you do not have Acrobat Reader, download for free !!

Because RC Tech Forums only allow 207000 bytes for attachments go to http://www.swrc.biz
and download the file off of the Front Page.
I tried it and it seems to work fine, Just Print it after it opens

darren
droop rear 4
droop front 2
front tire dia on 42 shore at 60 to 61 mm
rear tire dia on 40 shore at 60 to 61MM
front ride height 3.5-4
rear ride height 4.5-5
80wt front shock oil 2 hole (on smooth track)(60 bumpy)
60 wt rear shock oil 2 hole (on smooth track)(40 bumpy)
spring 1.8 mm front
spring 1.6 mm rear
camber rear 3
camber front 1.5
toe rear 1.5
toe front -1 to 1.5

I know your close to this somewhere


dial final diameter for tires main based on five minute wear of rear tires. If tire wear is .5 mm per 5 minutes and race is 30 then expect 3 mm total wear on the rears. that means at 4.5 to 5 mm ride height that you will be at 1.5 to 2 mm ride height at the end.

The other option on a high tire wear long race is to overdrive. usually unnecessary though. Then you use a bigger rear than front tire. There are numerous options for this on a g4.

hi motorman,

cheers for your reply.

your right, my set up is pretty close, with a couple of differences:

1) i think i am too high on ride height, usually 6mm
2) i have been using the 26t front pulley, with smaller front tyres, would you reccomend using 27t pulley and same size tyres all round?
if so what are the advantages? ( sorry for being a muppet but i know nothing about foams!)
3) i have been running a ball diff in rear, and diif up front with yokomo hard grease in it. its almost solid, doesnt thin out. and makes the car very easy to drive whilst still giving good steering!
couldnt get enough steering with a one-way but i hadnt tried running a narrow front, will try that.
do you always run a one-way? the serpent guys are running diffs most of the time here too (or so they tell me!!)
also would like to talk engines (not on forum) whats best way to contact you?

tabushi, there are set up sheets on the cml website:

http://www.cmldistribution.co.uk/car_setup.php
http://www.cmldistribution.co.uk/cml_setup.htm

the car is good on rubber tyres too! i always ran an insert that fills the tyre ( you dont want an air gap, not like electric) i like sorex type-a medium, on a 24mm wheel with the tyre of your choice. but always same grade tyre front and rear.

darren.

Got home from work today to find my new Mongoose kit waiting for me! Can't wait to build it, and more importantly, can't wait to drive it! I was really impressed with the quality of everything in this kit, the plastic in this car is molded really well, I really like that all the belt pulleys have the little holes in the lip in them for dirt and tire dust to come out of the gears. I noticed there was no hole in the clutch bell to adjust the centax nut, I presume you must take off the clutch bell to adjust the clutch? Overall, a very impressive car for "stock" out of the box, especially for the price....
