yea I have today and monday off. my hump pack died... and I think te diffs in my chaos are smoked.... well anyways heres a pic of the ST-1 with the new bearings and new orange fuel tubing.


Seems like all the chaos breaks is diff cups. Check them if you find some rounded then just CA glue them. Lets see the pics of the new bearings
what one do you think it is? center rear or front? I think its center b/c that one looked a little weird......

My OWB i found some JBweild so im doing that. ll tell ya how it works tomorrow. Well i fixed my cell phone! it went thru the washer machine.....
LOL that happened to my friend, except it fell in a bowl of soup I told him to just pull the battery and heat it up with a hair dryer for a long time, worked LUCKILY.

@pexter LOL it is suppost to be outside of the chassis. You want the car to see flat and close to the wheel.

Oh, Oldschool, one other thing I have noticed, if you preheat the engine with a hair dryer it helps get it started. I guess the stock engine has a lot of pinch when new. As far as clutch shoes, I havent had any issues, BUT I am wondering how much heavier the Savage is versus the St1, maybe thats the difference? IDK, they make long life clutch shoes ( I forget the brand, dangint ) and I hear they work well.

Back to braking...

The two black post (circled in yellow), are those the actual brakes that slow the drivetrain down, is that how that works? I've been playing around with them but Im having trouble figuring out how to adjust how much braking im getting. I see people putting the percentage of braking they use in the front/back, how are they measuring that? And lastly, to adjust them, do i have to move the two deals (circled in red) either towards the spring or away from it? What do the two knuckles do that are floating in the middle of the arm (in blue)? Thanks again guys


And I think i got the starter box, I just need to wait for the battery to charge before I can see if its making good contact with the wheel.

the things circled in red you should tighten. EX: loosen and slide in. this should solve you problem. also the springs I replaced with little pieces of fuel tubing. the things that the red arrows are pointing to are nothing with the breaks. thats for throttle.

Grimes - the roto start is amazingly easy _ I just won't suggest if the engine isn't broken in yet. For those having trouble breaking in - I feel your pain - go to around post 60 and you will see all my problems!! Just make sure you pre-heat the hell out of it with a hairdryer. Also, if you start to flood it, take off the glow plug and blow out any excess fuel.

In other news, took it out for the first time with the 2035 pipe. Wow. What a difference. It absolutely flies. Can't wait to get it on the track for the first time this weekend.

have about 6 tanks on it right now. Turns out i just pulled the knot through the handle. I fixed it, but I ordered the roto start before I looked at it and knew I could fix it. Either way im sure I will break the pullstart again before it gets here. I actually didnt have any trouble starting it up when I first got it. Fired right out without too much strain on the pullstart. Today on the other hand it didnt want to budge, I knew it might be flooded...one too many pulls
Also I just just got my 1600 stick pack hooked up, what a difference from 4AA's. cant wait to throw a better steering servo in this baby.

if your engine is tight just loosen the glow plug a little while you crank it with the roto start when it starts just screw it in with the igniter or your plug wrench it will start with a loose plug

^^ good advice, I would hate to get the roto start all installed and ready to go and blow a OWB on the first press of the button.
Can summer get here soon enough? I can hear the novice 1/8 truggy and buggy class calling my name.

^^ Aw man that sucks Mad, maybe you could talk to them and let the racers take over the track maintenance. Where I am going to race the City actually owns the land, and the local RC Club maintains the track. I had to pay $65 to be a member but that allows me access to the track anytime I want year round, within reason. And each race cost like $5 for members to race, and $10 for non members. Between the $65 and the per race fees they pay for all the electricity and water. Not saying it will work for you guys, but its definately better than losing your track.

I hear you about the motor being tough to start, esp. during breakin. I have 1+tanks so far after installing it yesterday and my pointer/middle finger are numb!
I will try the loose plug idea.
