Ade, I know that you do not go for maximizing performance on your cars, but with all those wires on top of the front axle are the front wheels still able to turn freely especially when you put the body on?
I have a R89 for my analog racing and I do remember that having the pick-up wires going under the axle is the only way of not interfering with the axle itself. But I do have the car as low as possible given that is a wood track.
Nice chipping there Ade ....... after trying them out yesterday on your newly laid track, I think that we have now found probably the perfect pickup wires. Mind you it was a bit of a Giraffe down the main straight with the car crabbing whn you hit the throttle ......... can you post up a video?
The cars that I have managed to get from Tel have been absolutely brilliant. I bought all of his digital chips way back when he went analogue with his "Hunter Valley" track , truly a scholar and a gentleman ...... big UPS mate ...... :clap:
Here Ive put the capacitor on a fly lead.
I havent finished adding ferrite men etc yet.
Ill update it as I go.
Ive needed to keep this low so the cockpit could stay.
Antenna bent 90 degrees half way along.
Blutac to fix board and capacitor.
Oops wrong video above try this:
You can see it centres perfectly one way and almost perfect from the left. So Ill just keep playing with wire tension until I get it right.
First 5 seconds is blurry sorry.
Here it is without chokes. We will test first as it may not be required.
Ive moved ferrite man to car decoder so the guide operation cannot be affected, very important.
Ive put capacitor on flylead so it sits flat so as to not interfere with cockpit so pod floats.
