i follow the break in directions from the video tutorials which consists of 5 tanks, first one is just letting it run idle, next 2 1/4 throttle then 3rd half throttle etc. i was going full throttle after the break-in.
how about if the nuts are on too tight on the wheels can that slow it down? since i remember doing that yesterday and i think when i got them super tight that it was difficult to roll the wheels i tried that right now as well tightening the nuts on the wheels since i'd rather it be secure than fall off and i got the feeling when it was getting too tight that it was getting harder to roll, wasn't rolling as smoothly so i backed out a couple turns so it's not all the way tight. is it just in my head lol ? can you tighten it in all the way and it will still roll easily?
Yes the wheels can be in a bind if the wheel nuts are too tight, just like the steering if the steering linkage is over tightened. This is why it's critical to do a quick check before running out of the box. You don't have to completely disassemble the car, but if I were doing a quick set up for a customer, this is what I'd do in front of them so they could see how to do it.
Check my spur mesh, if it's good, partialy remove one engine screw at a time and drip a drop of loctite on it and run it back in. If its not right, show them how to adjust it and what they're feeling for.
Put a screwdriver on all screws going into plastic and make sure there tight.
Remove all wheel nuts and loctite, show the customer how to tighten without over tightening and binding the hubs.
Remove the steering servo linkage and make sure you can manually turn your wheels without the linkage binding. If its tight, go over the steering linkage and find the bind.
Show them about rubber banding your battery pack and making sure you have a good connection at the plug.
Show them what the trim adjustment is for, and what it is used for.
These steps will take 10 minutes and will give the customer a good first experience and will keep them from showing up at your door every day trying to figure out these basic problems.
