The bind only appears when the body support is attached? If that is the case, disconnect the left side - does the bind disappear?

Try to shave the plastic a little, looks like they fit too tight. Let us know if that doesn't work

Wad is right - the fit is too tight. I would ream the holes as well - a little "slop" in that area is necessary to get good final movement. It is the only area that requires "hand" fitting.

Right now it's better than it was.

Default bearings

..Gentlemen.

I'm in the process of building the car, and was wondering about bearings. Should I pop off the metal sheild, clean out all of the grease and re-lube with light weight bearing oil?

I'm asking this because the bearings feel a little 'heavy'.

Thanks in advance,
Steve

if you use light oil you will have to service the bearing after every race to keep them up properly. if you leave the grease in the car will loosen up after the first run or so. you will clean them less but that is up to you

Default radio set up tip

Guys,
Here's something interesting that a buddy and I stumbled across recently that I want to share. I don't use dual rate very much, but my buddy does and discovered a what appeared to be a problem. When turning his d/r down, he found that the end points of the steering limits did not follow proportionally. For instance, if a 12th scale car could turn 2 foot circles at max steering in both directions and then you were to turn the d/r down, you might find that the car might turn a 3 foot circle one way and 4 foot circle the other direction.

Well this seemed like an obvious flaw in the radio. Who would want non-proportional side to side d/r like that? I have always found that when I set my radio up that my end points are not always the same side to side (90% vs 75%), but once set, the car always acted correctly. So thinking this was odd, I thought that I would ask our radio control Team Manager this question.

It turns out, that if you center a servo with "trim" to achieve the mechanical center that you are looking for in your servo arm/saver... you will have uneven end points and this problem will effect the way your d/r acts as you reduce it!

The correct way to set up your servo is to find the least amount of off center to mount your arm/saver and correct it with "sub-trim" to the nearest amount of mechanical center that you can. But first, you must make sure that your steering trim is at "zero". Make sure that your d/r is maxed out. Then set your epa's. You might find that your epa's are much closer percentage-wise then before. With any car, you will have to check all the steering links for equal lengths and a proper length steering rack link. Then use the "trim" to fine tune your car on the track. Now, your d/r will reduce proportionally correct all the way! Maybe as a rule, if you get steering trim more then 5% off of center, you may want to fix some of that through sub-trim. For some reason, the software that is in today's radios do not treat trim and sub-trim as the same, especially involving dual rate.

Check it out, it's worth a look!

Brian

I would suggest a front belt tensioner (empirercracing.com). Plus, there are belts on the market that break easily. Run the FM 538 front Kyosho belt.

Your two speed should work well - Here are some items to check: A) be sure to check that the first and second gears aren't tight and binding. There should be .008" of clearance between FM328-1 and FM 539. B) across the entire two speed shaft, there should be .005" play. Or, push the two speed shaft, in and out - the entire assembly should have play - not too tight. C) Your air gap should be minimal - between the second gear housing and the two speed shoes - no contact - but, damn close - use the "small set-screw" to set - evenly top and bottom. D) Bottom out your adjusting spring (FM423) - now back both out 2.25 turns. You should be close.

Good Luck
