Mr. Bowerman, how tight does the receptacle has to be when we insert the axle? Should we use lube? And which kind?

They are easy to change but also I will help you pick the brand and style so you do not have to change them on a regular basis. Once you purchase the correct brand and band you will not have to change them unless they get tighter again. I might be thinking a little off base but I will answer your question the best of my knowledge and being a very observant Doctor even when I am at the races. I think I have only seen you a few times at some of the races when you have stood in front of me waiting to go up the driver stand and walking up the drivers stand to race or practice. I did observe that I thought that this guy is very excited about racing, you were moving around a lot in one spot and when it was time to walk up the drivers stand your movements were real jerky and you were walking extremely quick to the stand so I did realize that your torque bands did needed to be changed. If the band fits to tight, it can stop the blood flow and will result in numinous and wear out quicker. So I realize now you had to move around to keep the blood flowing, it was the discomfort and you just wanted to go practice on the track and go back to the pits and sit down and give yourself some sort of relief..
To answer your question, changing them is very easy. First you will need to change the ones you use now and buy a different band style. The ones you are using currently do not fit you properly. This is usually from weight gain from eating not so healthy foods at the races for 4 and 5 days at a time, especially if you race and travel a lot with this r/c hobby. To start take one leg crank out at a time and put one leg crank in at a time, thatís it, there changed. Itís the tension that makes all the difference. Torque band brands are very difficult to buy until you put them on correctly the first time. First try not to wear the elastic bands too firmly around your leg crank if that is what you like to wear. I personally think that if you went and purchased some Thong Torque Bands where there is no elastic band around your leg crank you would be happier and feeling better. I think have the elastic going up between your two torque cheeks the band will find the center and fit smoother without any discomfort especially in the heat. But keep in mind do not have the torque band too tight between your torque cheeks when standing or it could hurt and tighten up when sitting down and cause problems. I would go to Victoria Secrets and find pure cotton Torque bands, no elastic.

Thank you for your question
Dr. Silver Fox
I'd just like to add that any custom fit torque band should be protected by suitable outer bands. Failure to do this may lead to unnecessary exposure and you may be required to report to race control for scrutineering and possible adjustments. Racing with a poorly fitted torque band and inappropriate outer bands have been known to cause injury to other racers, women, children and small furry animals.

Kind regards,

Simon

Hello future patient, Dr. Silver Fox will be out of the office for 12hrs. I can answer one more question before leaving. I appreciate all the question and concerns. I have a hearing today concerning my Doctors license being revoked. I will get back with your questions shortly, if I am allowed.

Thank you
Dr. Silver Fox

A receptacle box can be tricky when holding, it usually takes two people to help, but a third party sometimes can be used only if you are doing more than 1 axle shaft at a time. Inserting the axle can also cause problems and the lube is a must, you can use your own lube whenever you like and it can save you money. Some lubes are better than others, which will be up to you; you will be the one that feels the friction when the axle is inserted.

First the receptacle box as to have which I prefer .5 gap. If itís any tighter, the heat from the axle can cause the balls to tighten up on your axle and not spin freely. So pick the right box if youíre not using your own. Look around at the track there are different shapes and sizes receptacle boxes. Also, make sure it is a new axle you are installing or you would be wasting your time and can be harmful to you or others. To make this easier if youíre at a race changing this part and youíre running out of time, have a friend or a racer sitting next to you to help you out, it might not be the right receptacle box you like to use but it will work for a qualifier. First take some calipers and measure the girth of the shaft of the axle to make sure it is the right part youíre inserting, measure in three places, the tip, the middle and the closest to the connecting end to your body shaft. Do not measure the thread tip side that will be smaller because this is where you screw your nuts on the wheels. If this is the correct part then have someone just to be safe hold your box, have the person holding your receptacle box firmly when inserting the axle. Remember, you need to relax while the person helping you will be inserting the axle shaft. Remember relax or this can hurt your receptacle box and cause the axle shaft to bind while inserting. You might need a third party to help if this happens. Donít forget the lube, there is a very good lube on the market called BANANA lube, it has been around for years and works extremely well. It will help insert the axle and will cause less friction than other lube on the market, be careful with this lube because it is high grade pharmasuiticle oil and the person helping you might not realize the axle shaft is not in right away and he might push too hard and that is where you might move and cause the damage.

Thank you for your question

OK, you dudes are up to 2 55 gallon drums of rotor wash to complete the Dr.'s prescribed remedy.

Mr. STPN, First of all I have never seen your r/c car you are talking about or watched you race that I can remember. I live in the West Coast and announce most every race in that area on weekends when I am not being a Doctor. Your performance must be very terrible because I just can remember you and I am sorry. I really cannot answer your question as clearly as I would like or able to subscribe the proper diagnosis or medication to you, but I am willing to help and give advice to you.

I did some research on you just in case I needed to refresh my memory. I have looked up your name and some race results in the past several years and have NOT seen your name on any list of the races that sportsman racers go to and participate in. Being a highly qualified Doctor that I am, I did more research on you and the races in the West Coast where you live and finally found your name a few times. I do notice that you have only raced 2 or 3 times in the last several years and also have noticed that you give a ton of advice about racing and set-ups on forums. My question is, are you a qualified sociologist or you just think you are a mentor too people you are giving advice to? Please be careful, you’re inviting yourself to a law suit. I feel that you’re a joke to the r/c racing community and you should stop giving advice imminently before someone gets hurt. You have NO experience or knowledge in the r/c world or have any client’s to proof that you have helped then in anyway moving up to the next level. My only advice that I can give you is focus on your real job, cutting up 3 or 4 pound chickens at that burrito place you manage. (Great food I may say) But until you can race more and prove that you are dedicated to the r/c racing world and have the qualifications to back any of your advice up, you must stop giving advice. Also I went to speedworldraceway.com under IGT topic and did see those henway stickers on your car, take them off and you will go faster.

Thank you for trying to disrupt this topic and trying to dis-prove my credibility as a license Doctor. Please feel free to ask about any r/c related question, but please do not waste my time try to answer some funky asinine word that is on your car.

Dr Silver Fox

I think the most important question to Dr. Silver Fox is how he fix the nut behind the wheel
