Hi everyone, thanks for the help you gave me last Tuesday (2nd June) with my B44. As i am new to racing (again!!) would it be possible for any of you to give me some setup advice prior to my next meet?

I really enjoyed the night and hope to get their often for some more racing. :thumbsup:

Regards

Lee :D

Hi lee

A worth while starting point would be to use 2 hole white pistons with 40w oil in the front, and 2 hole piston with 35w oil in the rear, if you fine you have too much front end try 1 hole piston in the front.

Lee I will be running my b44 for the first time on tue so maybe we can come up with a setup ! You could really do with front and rear spring kits !

Hi Tim

I couldn't make it last night, hopefully i'll be there next week. I glued my minispikes on this time!, and i'll get a better steering servo, just using standard Futaba 148 and the car wouldn't go round corners.:thumbdown:

Hot wire it... remove the red wire out of the servo plug and solder it to the red battery lead. Your servo will be super fast and strong with 7.2 volts across it...

Lee I have a setup that was mint last night ! Basically it was stock apart from silver springs all round. Copy the manual to the T apart from the springs.
Hotwireing work well but will not last forever but standard servos are pennies
