Fail-Safe

 A pre-programmed feature that helps limit problems caused by radio interference. The system dictates a set position that the servos should return to (usually neutral) in the event of prolonged radio interference. This can help to prevent crashes by preventing temporary commands from being continued, and is included in most PCM radio systems.

 Facebook Questions:

 Joe Zaier Jr Do you try to eat decent when you're out of town racing

 Jeremy Drey You spoke about "loading up a motor" in a previous show. Not just pointing it straight and nailing the trigger. Can you elaborate further?

 Justin Frazier What is the current RC motorcycle record that is considered legit? Open class if there is such a thing. Not a 2 cell bike.

 Steve Pond How fast does it go and how much does it cost?

 Nate Hauger Do you use a set-up station, like for on-road cars, with the Rudis/RAE chassis? How do you check to make sure it's perfect?

 Aaron Bullock When can we get a Steve Pond interview... ??

 Daniel Gallardo What happened with the website you were going to make that was going to have all the rc records? Did I miss it?

 Desmond Desmond Where should the timing be put on the trinity d4 2.5 for max top speed

 Darwin Bohnke What about your idea of speed run on dirt?

MiniPro dyno  369.00

This is a universal motor dynamometer (dyno) that measures the rpm, kv, voltage, current draw, power and torque output of a electric motor. This dyno is great tool for motor analysis, ESC (boost) adjustment, brushless sensor adjustment, gearing calculation, etc. The dyno is coupled to a 540/550 motor or a Outrunner motor via a pulley and belt to accelerate the inertial mass. We will call this a ‘flywheel’ for simplicity. Our electronic board takes the flywheel’s inertia (resistance of an object to a change in its state of motion), measures the rate it takes to accelerate and calculates the output power and torque of your motor. Our dyno repeatedly measures and calculates power in small increments to produce an accurate graph on a PC of the engine’s power characteristics.

Tim Notes:

Lipo fire and having to charge unbalanced because its faster is that a real racing issue are races being run too fast, Who’s at fault?

Why are off-road guys so whiney?

 

  • RC Word Of the Week
  • Center of Gravity or better known as C.G.
  • The point on the chassis at which the vehicle balances with all components installed. C.G. is the three-dimensional balance point of the car. That is, there is a vertical C.G. as well as a horizontal C.G. All forces acting on the chassis can be considered to act through the chassis' center of gravity. Ideally, a vehicle's center of gravity should be as low as possible.

 

 Facebook Questions:

 Donnie Stillwell What's the story on this short course drag car you keep mentioning. Where do I find specs/rules? Here in illinois we don't have any surface good enough for a true rc drag car.

 Desmond Desmond Any tips on how to set the Tekin RSX Esc for the Trinity D4 2.5 on 2S?

 Kevin Kasten Any plans on when you are going to get that record? #200plus

 Teddy Linville My question to Tim Smith is gonnbe are you ever or thinking about trying a inline chassis?

 John Schultz When can i get time on your Dyno? Rotor Ron Motors on their way!

 Norris Graves What is the story behind you and Matt getting together?

 John Schultz Let start a 10.00 buy in, outlaw style No Prep Race. I have locations! Friday Night 8 pm. When are you ready?

 Joe Zaier Jr Would you release your own car with all of the proper stuff already in the box. Like the 12mm hubs

 Joe Zaier Jr I would also love to hear your take on this, Jared Tebo auctioning off his 2017 ROAR 1/8 nitro buggy National championship trophy:

 Hello all,

Well, I had a nights sleep on it and I've decided to not sell my ROAR Trophy. When I decided I would, I thought to myself, " I love motocross memorabilia, maybe somebody would want this. I want to get this RV2 jersey; I'll use the money from the trophy to get it, kinda like a trade". After I posted it, it just didn't feel right, I think I may regret not having it anymore. Now I feel pretty stupid, but I think it's best for me to keep it. If I decide to sell anything again, I'll do a raffle or something to give everyone a chance. Sorry to all the people that made bids. I will be deleting that post.

Thanks

Jared Tebo
