ae-racer, Dante wants to race his car again, so maybe I'll bring him up before indoor ends. I might run???????

I'm waiting for outdoor to start. I haven't been feeling the greatest lately so I've kind of just been laying around.

If you want to race Truggy this summer, Iwould suggest a used Jammin CRT RTR, If anyone has one for sale. They are tough, handle great and parts are readily available.

A Pro Jammin CRT kit with servos-engine-battery pack-starter box-pipe and whatever else you might need is going to cost you about the minimum of $ 1000.00. affraid

I am also looking at the Cen Matrix. I have had the itch to build one from the pro kit. We'll see, I imagine I will be making the decision pretty soon. That means that my hopped-up Mammoth st will be for sale. (the XTM 457 is a screamer)

I am not for sure on the tanks, but I am sure you will never end up up-side-down. It's not like you will be taking it over 3+ foot jumps or trying to fly over the triples, or pass the competition by running over them. Well you might be doing some of that...

I know it really helped me last year when I began running an in-line fuel filter. It held a little more fuel until the marshal had a chance to flip me back over.

The bracing on the pro is actually the same as the rtr. I know in some of the mag pics it showed the normal aluminum braces but I have the pro and the rtr versions in the shop and I can tell you that it is the best bracing I have seen on a truggy so far.

It'll be very interesting to see how many parts Ryan needs to bring to the track when you guys with all the new model truggies stuff the triple the first time. lol!

Was just wondering what clutch bell evertyone is using so far this season. I am torn between a 14 and a 15. Also I am not really sure what effects the 2 will have on racing. Ran a 13 around the track a few times and I was told it was a liitle weak on the high end.

Any advice would be greatly appreciate before I introduce the Mantis to her 1st race on Saturday.


Thanks

well if it seems that weak on the top end...going up one tooth would be the safest bet. you'd be suprised how much one tooth makes a difference


plus you don't wanna go up too high cause you'll work that motor and clutch bigtime.


I have a 12 tooth in the muggy (but it's geared high to begin with) and a 13 in the 8ight-T...but it has a .21 motor so I need that low end on it

Congrats on the Matrix!
This is what I am running right now:
shocks:
front: 60 wt #1 piston w/ short shock end (upper mount=lower outer hole bottom mount=inside mount)

rear: 40 wt #2 piston w/ long shock end (upper=lower outer hole bottom=inner)

diffs: remember these are the Limited slip differentials. They are different than most other truggies
front=80wt gear oil
center=5000 wt diff oil
rear= 2000 wt diff oil

Hope this helps you as a base. Did you get out and run it yet?

Jerod we have to remember that Nino is a teacher. He may only be a band teacher, but he is a teacher none the less so that means he actually likes doing homework! He was one of the ones we would look at to do our homework Twisted Evil

Trust me, you would not have wanted to copy off of my papers. Although I worked hard, the answers were not always correct. If you can believe that. study

Get that Matrix hooked up so we can swap set-up info. I still have some stuff I want to experiment with, but it is getting pretty close to the BIG race. It may have to wait.

What hop-ups do you have?
