Hi Revo,

The ED Transmission comes with a 16 tooth First pinion and a 21 tooth, second gear clutch bell.
These are a great starting point. It will help the car really take off out of the corners.

If you find you want a little more acceleration or your track is small and/or tight. Sam has the 15 tooth and 20 tooth combo' as an option. Likewise if your on a larger/ faster track and nead a little more top speed. There's a 17t/22t combination also.

I use a schum' droop guage. But I've heard the Team Magic one, part No: TM
116039
This is good because you get the stands and the guage doubles as a ride hight guage too !!

Hope this helps Revo.

Menace

The std gears that come with the ED is a great starting point.
Not geared too short and has good top end.
For a bit more tuning Id suggest a set of spare spurs gears in the different sizes ,this is more practical and value for money.After this id suggest getting the 15t 1st gear for tight tracks and maybe 20t pinion/clutch bell.

[QUOTE=Kodak Hodak]Hey All,

quick question, in regards to laying down the shocks on the front, what does this do? i did mine last night and noticed its a bit softer on the front!!

Also, will this give me more turn into corner and better grip?

Dude, how is the motor coming my friend. Long time no Talktie! Me be el sicky. YUCK DUDE!!!! I am way zoned and spacy. I'm not sure if anyone answered your question on this about laying down the shocks, I think I am a day behind here guys. Sorry about that. But I will give you a run down on this.

Shock position: the upper and lower shock mounting positions determine how much leverage the lower suspension arm has on the shock during compression, and how progressive the suspension is. (Sort of like changing the fulcrum position of a lever to produce a different amount of leverage). OK, I hope that makes some sence.

So, if your shocks have more incline (slant):

1. Makes the spring and damping softer
2. Makes the car more progressive giving a smoother feel and more side bite grip

If your shocks are more upright:

1. Makes the pring and damping harder
2. Makes the car have a more direct feel, but less lateral grip.

I could have got into extremem detail but didn't want to confuse anyone. Plus with me feeling like BUTT, I can't concentrate too well. If this needs revised, please feel free. But I think this is pretty accurate. I kept it nice and simple as this is all my brain can handle right now.

I want to wish everyone a fun and safe KILLER race weekend!!! I know a lot of you guys are racing, so go show them who's boss!!!

And Frankie, Dude you better keep me posted on your engine progress! I have missed chatting with you guys since I've been sick and all. You all have a great weekend. I hope that TZ treats you well my friend. Keep me posted. Later everyone!!!

ZOOM dude, Thanks for the reminder of the "pinion" gear trick for the brakes. Especially the part about I didn't need a bend in the rod itself. I straightened it out and took your advice. Just wanted to thank you dude!

I posted a few pics to show you all. Plus I took a pic of my RB that I plan on running. I have an older Nova JP moddified in there now. I need to break the Novarossi engine in so that's why I have it in there for now. So I might run it for a bit. I just LOVE my RB stuff!! Cool guys, later!

You 'll have to let us know how the Matrix runs. I thought about getting one at one stage. Pretty pricey to be a pioneer though.

Hey Boz, have you checked out your general chat forum on Aussie RC? It resembles something like Porno RC with the links. Ambushed by Net trash.....

Thats a shielded antenna wire. Nomadio seems to be top of the line. I did that tip but with fuel tubing and it didnt help. Thanks for the pic

I cant believe that i am the only one that cant figure this out. I feel like driving this car full speed into the wall. I have always been able to find glitching problems with all my radios and cars. This is the car i love the most but fear the most to drive it.

Default clutch question

I was putting a moror in my car last night and when I got to the clutch assembly i got a little stumped. The spring that goes over the shaft has a retainer thing that screw it down. The instruction showed a measurement of .05 but i cant tell what they are measuring. I just threaded it down a couple of turn (as tight as I could get it by hand). Any advice on this would be much appreciated. Thanks.

First of all you have to set your ideal droop, then taking into account that the carís ride height decreases as the foam tires wear down to smaller diameters, and having calculated your tire wear ratio over a certain period of time, you must set your ride height with the smallest tires you think you will run at a certain point in a race, and then you just cut the tire size you want, depending if is a short or long race, this way youíll never change the ride height, and or droop, just change tires depending on length of race.

For example: If you set 4mm ride height with a 57mm tire, you will have 5.5mm with a 60mm tire and 7.5mm with a 64mm tire

You should select tire hardness and diameters to achieve even tire wear and a reasonable variation in ride height for longer races.
