A-Main Racing Co. Bullet (FWD/4WS RC10)

Post by Phin »

All credit goes to Gomachv for this super find. After having the smarts to link A-Main's address from the RCCA ad to an old hobby shop in Oregon Gomachv actually managed to find a local racer who ran the Bullet at a ROAR event and still had the manual.

Don't forget- its bit just fwd but also 4ws 8) likely with very little rear steer. Probably kept it from pushing quite as bad

The last pic is of a brass rod that they apparently would cut and make slugs to install in place of diff balls. I guess they liked their diffs locked. Hmm.
It's time to stand up to the bully. Support the companies that support the industry, not the ones that tear it down. Say no to Traxxas

Doh...how'd I forget the four wheel steering bit. :?


I think your racer friend wrote in his email that they were brass slugs, which got me thinking that they may have been used to let the wheels independently slip a bit. I've mentioned it a few times before that I've wanted to try the same thing on a 6-gear with Traxxas friction pegs.

I think friction pegs would be a great thing to try. I read his email at 2am so its still a blur. Your right about the brass and it makes more sense lol
