Try using a little bit of red loctite.

Maybe Salven was using the LCG motor mount.

i just want to see them because my 960 has a Blitz 530,i painted one very fast with the remainder of paint sprays....and a guy has just paint the other one today with an aerographer...tomorrow i'll have pics,and i hope to receive it before the week end

tomorrow i'll run with my 960,and perhaps this week end (normally the weather will be nice)
I tried the low downforce Blitz body this past weekend and the car felt like the rear end was drifting around. It did not feel as stable as EV3 body.

Do you mean the screw that goes into part 9618 (Alu. collar brake pulley)? I'm not sure how the screw in the brake adaptor itself could fall out since it covered by the pulley. Can you give more details?

You are going to have to force the pulley off. It's stuck on the set-screw. Once you get it off, use a drop of red loctite. Or you can use one of these...

Thks for the reply :-)

I will think about your options. Maybe I will put the adaptor from the 950R. Tried the aluminium pully last year and the rear belts dont like it!


Thks

Good racing!

Best regards

No problem.

I have been using the aluminum pulley on the 960 and stripping belts has not been a problem. I run the belts in the tight setting and they last a long time.

New LCG chassis The motor will then be 2 a 3 mm lower.

i hope you understand all i wrote because i did that with google


first exit of the animal this afternoon then in spite of the cold (approximately 4 with 6°) the handling was very good out of tire 35Sh(MS tire)

the 1st full tank was done not like a catch in hand but rather in a normal way, as if I knew the car, and as if it had already run, and I thus quickly realized that the car slipped of the back, and was even vicious in certain fast parts of the track (great parabola and the "S" in end of straight line)

return to the stand I change the yellow rear springs (delivered with the car) to put the blue ones and there, magic ,the car is rivetted, I pass to the block the parabola without any movement of the car, the "S" is swallowed nickel, so that I was surprised with releasing gas a split second to pass this famous "S"
I made 4-5 full tank and the car worked nickel, I just had the kneecap of steering between the servo and save servo which was unscrewed and that was finished by a gliding flight with the top of the covers of protection, but nothing broken, it seems solid .
the set up is like in the manual( camber 2°rear, 1.5°front, front toe-out 1°, rear toe-in 2° ) but with rear blue springs , and the front rollbar like that /

I also point out that the last year I almost did not run and the last time I really run was May or June 2005 and it was on Mrx-3

I will make the difference between the 2 cars when I will find my marks at 100%, but for the moment I did not see of large difference between the mrx and the 960... maybe that the mugen has rear more stuck, but i'll see later with various adjustments

Sounds like your first time out with the car went ok??

Default First time out A-main finish

Much earlier than expected I entered my first race with my 960 the past weekend. I think I finished 8-9th but I didn't check. I wasn't the first guy off the driver's stand though. The car performed well in the qualifiers but in the B-main I noticed some things I wanted to change on the clutch.

Unfortuneately, my biggest mistake was entering 2 classes (1/8th and 1/10th) which ended up meaning I couldn't concentrate on either car (my 1/10th is an MTX-4). My poor MTX-4 got smashed up during a practise run when a connector in my Skyline battery broke off. I then had 10 minutes to put it back together which meant I couldn't adjust the clutch on the 960, set an earlier 2-speed timing, or replace the cracked upper body support which I discovered just before putting the body on the car for the A.

Still, very satisfied with the results. The car had a total of 30 minutes of run time since being being built before entering the race. I made 3 adjustments (no side stiffeners, blue springs in the rear and red in the front, and moved the front upper arms inward). This is my first 1/8th A-main finish and car was easy to drive. Braking was very good. Although the car had little punch with the standard clutch settings, it had very good speed over a longer stretch and was able to out run most other competitors. Lost a dogbone though and the muffler Jeez, a JP 2031. Nice power/fuel combo but it got smacked pretty hard. To bad you can't fix it.

Good job on your first time out. What gearing are you using in first gear? If you are using the stock pinion and spur,you can get some extra rip out the corner by using either a 15-49 or a 16-50.
