Hello Everyone:

Can anybody tell me what the 3-position switch (for lack of a better word) that is located on the bottom of the Super G+ chassis is for? There are three notches and a pointer which indicates which position has been selected. I run the chassis in position #1 for a few laps, then switch to position #2 and so forth, but I don't see any appreciable difference in the operation of the chassis. What is this mechanism for or what is it supposed to do? I assumed it had something to do with increasing/decreasing downforce, but that doesn't seem to be affected, either. Thanks for your assistance.

Its for the timing of the armature.

Centre position is 0 degrees of timing.

One way advances the timing, the other retards it.

One way gives you more torque at the expense of revs, and the other gives you more revs at the expense of torque.

Not sure which way is which, and by how many degrees, but that is the simple answer.

It is best to experiment with the timing, in my experience some cars will be faster if you adjust the timing, with other cars it will have no effect.

Looking downwards on the car, with the front away from you, fully down on the left hand side is advanced timing, down on the right hand side is retarded timing, advanced gives revs, retarded gives torque, but the difference isn't massive and probably not noticeable on a short track.

Yes,
Julian is correct. If you could sit in the car, pushing down on the brush assemble to the left will give you advanced timing. In general, this is most often used. A word of caution, if you push down too far, you will reduce electrical contact between the brush assembly unit and the hanger bracket. Also once you have your settings correct, you may want to push down on the brush assembly nose( were the armature goes into the brush assembly) to ensure that the assembly has not popped up a tad.
