Smooth Shocks PR Racing Day 3

IMG_4261[1]

I have found that the o-rings are quite sticky and tight, so I decided to only use one instead of two. I replaced the other one with one of those shims with a lip on it. This made the shocks nice and free. Apparently PR have/are working on some different o-rings for smoother action.

Today I also drew the car in CAD and figured out a setup to run. I will write more about that tomorrow. It’s late. We only left the track just before midnight.

PR Racing 1:10th Day 2

Do you like my paint?

Apparently I got a carpet version of the car :-). Anyway I had all the parts needed for dirt it seems, the centre diff being one of them. Today I completely removed the upper decks. The car is quite stiff stock. Tomorrow I will still experiment with the side braces, I only removed some screws out of them today, but the car is still so stiff, that I think I will remove them altogether tomorrow and see how it goes.

I have been running 3 hole 1.6mm pistons, with 450/350 oils, but tomorrow I will try 2×1.6/2×1.7 pistons which a lot of people seem to be running in other cars.

Still, so far so good! I haven’t broken anything so far. I bent a rotor though, after hitting a curb and coming to a dead stop at the end of the straight. Crazy shit!

IMG_4248 IMG_4249Tried trial and error geometry stuff at the track. Tomorrow morning the car will get the CAD theory treatment, and then I will go back and try whatever I come up with. Happy days!

PR Racing SB401 – 1st Test

You can use 47 different combinations of batteries and locations, and motor locations. I chose this one. I like it. Max built his differently, so we will see which is better. He has the new conventional motor left rear, battery right rear. I don't believe in that.

The Nr1 upgrade for 1:10th 4wd cars on dirt. So much better it stupid!

Not bad, I will post some build pictures, and all mods I have figured out need doing  later this week. Next week we are going to the Euros, so this week is all about 1:10th scale.

The 4wd was a pleasant surprise. I tried J Smoker’s car at OCRC in January and it was really good, so I was pretty confident I would be able to get the 4wd car good. (and that’s truthfully the only thing I care about) BUT, I have to say I was surprised at how good it was already the first day. Out of the box it wasn’t really on point on a loose dirt track, so looks like I will be recommending some setup adjustments for the box setup for loose tracks :-). After a few changes it was pretty good, and then after installing the centre diff it was awesome. I’m happy with it already after just one day. It’s a shame we don’t have any high grip tracks to try it on. I wonder how the Euros track will be…
