Question

Would anyone have baseline gearing for a very tight and bumpy dirt track, Komodo Dragon 19T, BX? Started at 24/81 and ended the day at 27/81....straight line speed was getting much better, so I feel I was going in the right direction, but I still couldn't finish any of my 5-minute heats as it seems the motor was getting too hot and the car would start to slow and eventually stop moving (steering still worked, so I'm wondering how much the charge in the batteries influenced this). The shutting down could've been my batteries (having my GFX updated for lipos and had to use my Triton that weekend), but the motor definitely smelled like it was getting hot and the color of the comm confirmed it (was red with the 24 and became lighter in color every tooth I went up on the pinion). The motor had one race night on it previously and was properly broken in, though I've now switched to silver brushes since the stockers have blued on the ends.

Am I close with the gearing? Would going to an 84 or 87 spur help?

Thanks!

EDIT: upon researching it a bit, it looks like the 81 tooth spur is probably too small for how tight the track is, so I'll try the stock 84 and report back. On another note, I really like the BX so far.....great steering and bump handling comparable to my XX4 and will likely be more durable. Kind of surprised the car didn't do better in the U.S. For anyone still running this car, Bastos' French Nationals setup from PetitRC is a great baseline for dirt....the specified white springs are somewhat stiff for really rough tracks, so I'm going to try the softer Yok springs from the optional spring set to tone down some of the bounce and lengthen the front camber links to see if I can get a little more steering throughout the end of the turns.

I should also mention that dirt ingress into the drivetrain wasn't a problem; running Shadows' vinyl diff covers and a piece of tire foam stuffed into the outdrive to protect the thrust bearings, the diffs stayed smooth all day. I also used a small pick to remove any small pieces of dirt that found their way into the rear diff gear after every round, which I also had to do with my CAT 3000, though I don't remember ever reading about dirt getting stuck in the pulleys being as big a problem in that car.

I thought I would just say I have bought myself a 2009 and straight out of the box with AE silver springs all round and even the box shock oils, It was the nicest 4wd car I have ever driven. So nice and safe. What a relaxing car to drive. This measn to me that I can afford to not push it towards the 110% mark and crash. I can just drive it safe and still be quick.
The only thing I wanted was a little more turn in which putting a washer under the front outer camber link ball stud gave me. I also went to AE blue springs on the front as it was very dry and very grippy. I then put the wing mounts in the low possition which made the car unstable over high speed bumps and over jumps. Raised it back again and it was planted.
I have all the camber links as the book says so for the first impressions this car is ACE.

Default B-Max Lipo set-up

Any one have a lipo set-up for the b-max, I'm running on an indoor, clay, high bite track with the champ shocks. Most set-ups I'm finding are using nickel metals. Thanks

Probably going to play with one of the Yatabe set-ups, just don't know which one, they are very different. The newest one shows 3 degrees positive camber, 3 degrees toe-out and a really low ride height. Anyone have experience with the yatabe set-ups?

Mr Yardy, can you post up your latest Nationals set ups?

I'm interested in the EPR set up in particular
