The friction style does burn out faster ,the Mgt trucks uses those as well ,at one point ,I was modifying my spurs gears an drillingI just have the stock slipper currently, which is the one with the little plastic pegs. Are there some better options out there? I see some ones with actual pads, etc, but not sure they will work.
That spur set up is like what is in most rear trans on 2wd models an the way they work ,most trans. are set up on a bunchHow does that work with the ball bearings? Wouldn't the disks spin on the bearings?
I've got this thing broken in, and am starting to tune. Gradually leaning int out, it's still pretty rich. I have to do something about the brakes, they just don't work all that well, tried some adjustments to no avail. Bad enough that twice I tapped into a curb at low speed, but enough speed to wreck my steering servo(no servo saver, or front bumper for that matter on this).
Definitely have to do some suspension tuning as well. The wheelie bar mod is working great though, but when I gun it the right rear wheel tends to lift up pretty hard and make the car spin to the left quite a bit. So I am thinking the shocks need to be adjusted to be a bit stiffer...gobs of insane power though! I can easily brake the tires free even when moving 10-20 mph. Can't wait to race this against some of the local 2s electric guys who think nitro isn't fast enough Just a couple of test runs of 132 feet and timing in my head, I can already see that this thing can fly. Still need to do a full top speed run to decide if I want to change gearing, but I might actually be ok with the 20/72 set up.
