Memory refreshment UPDATED PICS

Post by Bent »

Just thought I would share the newest member of my RC family. It is an rc 10 with an Andy's chassis and rear body mount. It has RPM rear arms with buggy? arms out front and what looks to be standard buggy suspension out there. All I need to go fast is some steering arms. Here's the pics if I am wrong or dont know please tell or correct me these RC10's are still new to me.

it's really gonna depend on the size of the track, and every motor likes to be geared a little different. in my 2.25 oval cars, i always seemed to be around 81/32, 84/34. now, that was with a 27t. so, if you'd be running a 19t (as you stated above), you might have to change it around a bit.

also, you might have to oblong the holes on the motor plate to be able to used the large pinions.

Scr8p when you say "81/32, 84/34" are you referring to how many teath are on the gears? If so I think I know where I need to be. The track that I will be running is right arount 90-100 feet long for the oval and not sure on width. As far as I know the car has a 6 gear tranny not sure if it is the stelth or not. The motor that I am hoping to use in the car is a Chameilian 19t sped mod motor. What ever spec means. All I know is when the car is on the pit stand, 2 2.2 tires, the tires that is in the second picture swell a bit so I am hoping it will get the job done. I also want to thank you it seems that you are always the first to jump in and offer advice, that is one of the reasons I have traded my whole fleet off for rc10's, that and this is an awsome community. So......... Thank You.

going by the above pics, it looks like a stealth.

yes, the 81/32 would be for the number of teeth on the gears. spur/pinion

when you get to the track, i'm sure there will be plenty of guys there that can help you dial in a gear ratio. if the total driveline of the track is only 100ft., that pretty small. maybe start off with a 81/30. if your getting of the corners good, and the car is winding out before you get into turns 1/3, go up a tooth on the pinion. keep doing that until it winds out just as you let of the throttle to set the car up to get into the corner.

if you get there with an 81/30 and it's not winding out, try dropping to a 29, and so on until it feels right.

scr8p Here is a couple pictures that might give you an idea. The figures I gave you was a ball park figure based on the size of the overall track which is and I quote from their site http://www.indyrcworld.net "Indy RC World has an indoor dirt track that supports Off-Road racing. The overall track area is 140 ft. long by 84 ft. wide." I do know what you are talking about doing now just trial nd error deal basically. Any how the only question I can think to ask now would be how do I know when I am topping a motor out I cant hear the electrick motors over rev.

Sorry about the picture quality It was a video filmed with my still camera then put on pc and did a screen shot from vcl player.

Well I managed to glue the arm back on my bell crank long enough to get a battery ran through it. I ran across some issues today as well. A: my car stops and I have to hit the trigger twice to go forward when I let of to turn. B: my left tire rubbs the a-arm when I turn, how ever the right tone don't. Other than that and a couple soft shocks I have no issues.

HERE IS A COUPLE PICTURES ENJOY!
