Hi again,

I installed the front brake kit. The brake cable length is marginal to be pinched at the servo horn. The outer tube can't be shortened as its length is what's needed to not interfere with the steering. I'll have to get a new cable. I read you're using push bike brake cables.

Regarding the VR3T 2.4 setup for the front brakes, do you use B-MIX or MIX?

I also noticed there's a switch at the top of the radio for the AUX channel. Do you setup the brakes with the switch on or off? I ask because the Tx manual doesn't mention anything about it. The brake works at both positions. The difference is the servo seems to move its center with the switch on. But if the brakes are setup with the switch at the on position, and later the witch is turned of for any reason, the servo horn with peg at the brake cable bracket.

Thanks in advance.

David

No worries David, you are correct the servo works with the switch in both positions. The info here is how I set mine up.

Hi guys,

On the box of the bike it says it has a "mechanical traction control system", is this just the slipper clutch? Cause the picture is of the drive cog and chain? Is there a part there I've got confused? Only reason I ask is cause I like to know the ins and outs of how my Rc vehicles work.

Hi Alan, its referring to the changeable blocks that support the swingarm shaft. By changing the position of the swingarm you can change the amount of squat or anti squat which can change the handling of the bike. I haven't tried it on bitumen but I've heard some people use the reversed B block and have been happy. I run on slippery dirt usually and still prefer the A block to the B. I don't seem to need any more grip and I find the squatting through the corner only upsets the bike for me. The slipper works like any other slipper. Hope that helps.

That bike of yours is dialed in!!! You're running a different motor aren't you? I've just ordered a 12 and 13 tooth pinion to try and get a little more from my stock motor, I think if that's still a little tame, I'll look at getting the motor you're running.

Cheers!

No worries Alan. The bike feels pretty good. This bike has a std motor geared with a 12 in this vid. I like 12 or 13. 12 gives good speed and great punch, 13 has a little more speed and pull up high but loses a little down low. The motor still seems to pull it fine.
