    Try taking the rear wing off and softening the rear suspension some. The Rusty has a lot of drag in the back and tends to lift the front end at around 65 mph. If you can keep the back low and out of...

    If you need to use the reducer, don't forget the LocTite! I lost a 24t Mod 1 when it spun off. Use the blue goop on the reducer and on the setscrew. Don't use the red because its permanent.

    I have a Bushnell Speedster III and it works great. It's a Doppler type and is calibrated for baseball, so it picks up the truck very well.

    Sorry guys ... that should say 100K up there. Even tho its a tad light, the thing turns a bit better and goes straighter when you accelerate.

    I think I'm gonna spring for the sealed FLM diff. I...

    Was it still on the ground? Mine goes sailing at about 65 without a wing to keep it stuck.

    Could be that the Integy trans is ok. I was basing the comment on the grade of metal they use in parts that I've used and have had failures. Those parts seemed to be made of cast, not billet metal....

    Time to crack the tranny open. It's either the shear pin on the input shaft or a stripped gear. While you're in there, you may want to lube the diff. I use 100-weight and stuff as much in as I can....

    Don't bother with the Integy gearbox. They're made out of cheapo metal and will not live long. Go for the gusto and get a FastLane Machining (FLM) unit. They use 6061 billet aluminum. It fits like a...

    My wife presented me with an itemized list of my RC purchases since Feb11 when I caught the bug. Okay, it was a lot. But when I told her it could be at least 10x worse if it was real cars, she heaved...

    Looks great! Let us know how they work! That material looks like the stuff they make laboratory gear out of. If so, it's bulletproof against shock, but doesn't like UV and will degrade if exposed to...

    More voltage (5s) is the next step. I'll need it to see what the 2400 can do. It runs out of breath at about 40 or so on 3s.

    Dad: You had asked to be informed if I'd seen any performance dropoff...

    Thanks, guys. Where can I get one of those spurs? Can't find it anywhere!

    Today's ah-ha: Those are 32-pitch, so that's why the lower tooth counts (duh).

    Whoa ... thanks. Your sugg is to go DOWN on spur count? I thunk bigger was better with the torquey 2400. I guess I don't get "Mod 1" ... pls explain?

    I got some in 1/16 and they stick like glue. They're really soft, so probably won't last long on asphalt. And they look really BAD!

    Sounds like a low battery, but it could be a prob with the ESC or it might be a bad steering servo. My Mustang did something similar and it was the servo.

    Speeder Gear Questions

    The speeder is coming along. The suspension is just the way I like it and I have the aero sorta worked out. I got ahold of a CC 1415/2400kv motor (Man! What a thumper!) so now I think I have a better...

    Steve, this thing is BEAUTIFUL! Please don't hit anything at 100mph! I'm also building a speeder, but mine doesn't look anywhere near that nice!

    Nice engineering, too. The oversized gear cover is...

    Took it out this morning and got even better speeds: 63 twice and a lot of high 50s. Used up 2 batteries. Looks like the motor is okay after being roasted the other day.

    Gears were 17p/86s and...

    Interesting ... I've found that stiff springs bounce too much if the pavement isn't smooth. The softer setup seems to soak up the bumps so the truck doesn't get unstuck in a turn as easily. It DOES...

    I think I'm getting it. The kv rating is the number of RPM the motor turns for each volt of input, so higher rated motors need to go faster to produce their best torque (or power, if you prefer). The...

    Try middleish-to-soft springs with heavy damping at all 4 corners ... maybe 50-80+ weight oil in the shocks and the 1-hole restrictors. Lotsa damping. It'll squat some when goosed, but it'll stick in...

    Yeah, the temp got away from me. I already got those gears outa there! Hope its still ok. Its a Castle MMP with the 1406/5400 (might be 5700) kv 4-pole motor. Too much motor? I was going for torque,...
