Nice set-up...I can guess by the shape the Esc it's a Spinner, what about RX...Micro t ?

mk2kompressor
2008.09.23, 08:51 AM
modified spinner esc,rc18 reciever de-cased and micro heli servo:)
same as what i use in the sinisters.
this will be mainly used for hfay time trials:D

ive used the same recievers in all my pan cars marc,no glitches with giro z:D

Cool, I was only suggesting the 3500 for size and 2.4 factor. Worked great in my custom Micro-T!

I'd like to see a race between the two different chassis.
First a time trial, then side by side.

mk2kompressor
2008.10.03, 08:19 PM
ill compare both chassis when i have more track time,just the mrcg at the meet this month:)

rcp test was interesting,almost like my awd with the grip but i had a slight tweak problem thats now hopefully sorted :D

went 2.4 with 3x3 of 7312 fets and jr-22 micro servo,it looks alot cleaner now,once tested ill make it all a little more permanent and neaten it up some more.
its belt drive at the moment for testing this coming sunday and maybe a time trial or two;)

Hi mk2.
It really looks lean and clean very well distributed too:D
I see some CNC pole at the front end, steering system, are those OME, or the CNC parts that Brian ordered for the final produced chassis?
Talking about steering system, any wiggle there?
This is my only concern about this superior chassis; I thought that at the end Brian would come up with the ball-join & linkage system he once blueprinted. To me a perfectly strict-precise steering system, is a rule of thumb in R/C cars, practically mandatory.
The stacked FETs 3X3, is that 3x3 on top only, 3x3 bottom and 3x3 top or 1x1 bottom 2x2 top vice-versa?
Let us know the outcome of your test as sun you achieve the right set-up
Enjoy it man:):D
Cheers

mk2kompressor
2008.10.04, 07:00 PM
hi richard,the alloy uprights are pinched from another rc car,just the right size:D
the steering has no slop and works very well,the holes in the tierod come small enough to work with plastic knuckles and easy work to make them bigger for alloy knuckles.
i fitted 2x2 on the bottom and 1x1 ontop,with thick servo tape underneath to hide wires and clear the fets off the batt holder.
you will see the results of one of the hfay time trial tracks soon;)

eztuner12
2008.10.04, 09:21 PM
mk2
Thx for the info. It is a relief to me hearing about the 0 wiggle at the steering system.:):):D
Surely I am looking forward for your results and test-drive with the MRCG at the HFAY.
About the FETs pattern (2x2↓ & 1x1↑) would you recommend this same configuration but with 4562s for an AWD as for the MRCG too, with a 2.4Gz, to be used with modified motors as 35T and 37T? I am looking for an equivalent of 2x3 4562 from a 27AM for a 2.4Gz
Again thx;)
Cheers

mk2kompressor
2008.10.05, 01:13 AM
i personally no longer like to use 4562 in my cars,i have 8898 in my 2.4 awd,with the throttle resolution as good as it is with 2.4 they should be good for mod motors:)
are your motors handwound and any ideas of current draw ect?

eztuner12
2008.10.05, 10:52 AM
Good morning mk2
The 35Ts are hand woven with big fat COM from Mine-iec-Motors, the 37Ts are from PN Racing, don’t know the draw of them. But they can handle very well 8 to 9 min run with Orion HPs, the 35Ts just a bit hot at the end of 9 min. I use 2x3 4562s, I can handle very well their speed I’m a high-skilled, excellent driver so have no problem what so ever with the high speed they perform.
Thx

thats a relli nice chassis, but would you say its worth the price?

mk2kompressor
2008.10.13, 01:08 PM
its worth the price if you are serious about racing or just like to tinker,even the its still cheap;)
in my eyes its a very capable chassis,even from the final design pictures it looks like a winner:cool:

eztuner12
2008.10.13, 01:22 PM
Hi paul england,
Sorry to cut-in
It is a very reasonable price, the only problem I see is that at tinyRC they don’t have even a 25 % of the required complementary parts to assemble this baby.
Going back to the chassis, to me it worth every penny, I am only waiting for mk2 test-drive out come, as well as for TinyRC to stock the required extra parts to buy it.
The person that design this chassis did an excellent job and he prove it in some races he participate and accomplished winning positions without practically driving experience.
The chassis seems to be very resistant and you can mount auto scale bodies without having to make holes to the body, just snap-in as on Kyosho Mini-zs.
Cheers

i was going to as about the belt drive system in your shop, TGR Belt Drive Differential System (BDDS)as to weather this affects the performance? and does it requrire a special motor pod? if you could pop on msn any time soon MK2 id like it as i want to ask you something and do not want to make too many posts today as i will probally get a ccused of posting just to get in the B/S/T lol. i pmed you my msn so if you pop on ill ask you about things.

Nice job Mk2
I noticed that the left slot were the front knuckles are inserted is kind of damage:confused:, is this due to a hit or this part is wearing out with use?
Can the steering white sliding rod be swap for a carbon fiber piece?
Can it be possible to place a Teflon washer underneath the nut that hold’s the steering rod in line to accomplish a smoother reaction movement?
I guess your next move will be, to look into the possibilities of converting the actual steering system into a full ball & linkage system.
Can you provide a comparison chart between the MR-CG Vs. Inzane P-28, in order to orient us in making a decision??
I really hope that Brian come up with an AWD version soon!!!!
Thxxxxx… and happy holidays and healthy & successful 2009:)
Cheers;)

EMU
2008.12.24, 12:59 PM
Looks good. How does it drive with the new steering link? I had a noticable increase in steering precision since there is no play between the servo saver and the knuckles. Much less play than any of my Kyosho cars.

mk2kompressor
2008.12.24, 01:57 PM
Richard,
the holes have been filed and filled with ca glue for a few different knuckles ive tried:D
it runs on narrowed mini-z bushes but not in the picture,id like to try full ball link in the future.
i could do a comparison against the sinister but no p28 in my stable yet:rolleyes:

emu,
its about the same as it was before i broke it:o
track test will be sunday,it seems ok on my carpet,just need to convert back to 98mm.
when i have the new kit ill do a back to back 94mm vs 98mm

color01
2008.12.24, 02:31 PM
Looks good MK2, seems like this will become a very popular mod for the car.

For me, precision on the bench was awesome but the servo horn flexes more than before. There is less play though, as EMU mentioned.

Replacing the G10 tierod with a carbon fiber one is possible if you have the tools, but the carbon one would probably wear out the screws holding it. :eek: You can put your own Teflon washers above and below the tierod, but the best way would be to make a Delrin tierod, which if there is enough demand, I will try for.

If anyone has both an MRCG and a P28, I'd like to see a comparison test too. I spent my cash on a new ASF AWD (yes, guess what's coming out next... ;)).

Quit using fiberglass parts on the production car. :p Although the front upper brace I could sympathize with, it gives the car a slightly softer feel.

man i thought the proto was good!!!!
managed to get a few good laps in yesterday,the MRCG is by far the best 2wd ive driven so far:D
the rear end feels so much more planted and under control,its very forgiving if you make a mistake,really easy to bring back up to speed and get back into the racing line 10/10 from me:D
still need to make a few tweeks to the front suspension to get it how i like it
(didnt have alot of time off the track:()
the micro-t board worked really well for the cost of it and so simple to install too.
ive just finished making a conversion so the micro-t servo will go right in using the original servo saver making it cheaper to get the car running.
stay tuned for pics;)

I decased both untis and removed the plastic pin brace from the bottom of the pinouts. The plugs for servo and speed control are now low enough to fit under a Takata NSX...if you're thinking lower CG and body you might consider permanently wiring them to the RX by removing the pinouts.

Nice MK2 Cowboy. What I like to do which looks really neat and clean is hardwire your reciever wires to the reciever and shrink wrap. U can cut the wires to length so there is no excess wire.

Thanks davey...I didn't mean to take away from MK2's thread but since you mention it I've shortened all the wires from their source to make them a little tidier. Those photos are stuck on my dead camera...charger doesn't work anymore.:(

Especially if you decide to use a Micro-T PCB and servo, getting a pan chassis running is pretty much plug and play. :)

True, the ASF board install requires a bit of skill soldering to the servo pot and motor, but it doesn't take that much extra work either.

http://img91.imageshack.us/img91/9347/img0284.th.jpg (http://img91.imageshack.us/my.php?image=img0284.jpg)

You can certainly get a very clean wiring layout from it, the only extra wires I have are for the Giro-Z transponder.

back to a 2.4 board on the production car,using a futaba s3106.
found out an interesting thing with the s3106,it has a 100ohm resistor soldered to the pot.
i left it in and tried it as none of the servos ive used with the 2.4 board have ever centered 100% (98% isnt good enough for me lol)
i was sure the problem i had before was the non-kyosho pots in the servos are not quite the correct value,never had the time to look into it untill now:)

providing i have no hicups tomorrow i should finally get some timed runs with it!!!

101K resistor sounds way too large a value, I would think. :eek: But I guess it wouldn't hurt to try? Please let us know how it goes, Richard. :)

Hi Color1, I mean 101ohm = 0.1KΩ

Sorry mk2 I am very confused.:confused::confused:

The Pot has three legs, center leg is power, and the two side legs are signal.

The resistor has two side terminals, one on each end.

The Pot gets the power & signals from the wires that come from the board.

As you wrote, one end of the resistor terminals is solder to one signal leg (side leg) of the port, and the other terminal of the resistor on which of the wires that comes from the PCB is solder to???:confused:

Perhaps one terminal of the resistor is solder to a signal leg of the Pot and the other terminal of the Resistor solder to the Power center leg of the Pot?
Or one therminal of the resistor to one signal side leg of the Pot and the other resistor terminal to the oposite side signal side leg of the Pot?

Is the resistor solder directly on the Pot or on the wires on the PCB side, were the wires are solder to the PCB?

Perchance the resistor is interrupting/between the signal wire that comes from the PCB the to the pot?
PCB signal wire-resistor-pot side signal leg. PCB wire----------- resistor-Pot

Sorry for the "inconvenience":o
Thanks!!!!
Cheers

Hi mk2
Your Pot resistor is 1000Ohm check this link for referamce

How was the micro t board running in the MRCG??

The throttle resolution isnt very good. Its not very smooth, and doesnt deliver as much power as ASF, or hobby grade ESC.

as above,its very on or off with the throttle so you have to have a light finger to control it with mod motors.
servo was perfect though:)

hi Richard,
brown,black,red=100ohm,i tried to take pics of it but my camera is crap:o
its connected to one of the outer legs of the pot(i dont think it matters which leg)

Hi mk2
I did buy a couple brown, black & red colored resistors.
Can you PLEASE tell me???, if the resistor on your Fut-s3106 was directly soldered to one of the outers legs of the pot and then the servo board wire to the resistor, been the resistor a bridge between the pot and the board wire, example; Board--Wire--Resistor--Pot.

By any chance, do you remember if the resistor was solder to the left or right outer leg of the pot looking at the pot from the backside?

I really will appreciate this info, since I am planning to add the resistor as soon I go back home.

Advanced thanks!!!!;)

Cheers

its in its testing stages before i hardwire it for the pnwc;)

Matt,

1. Do you have good grip with ATM tires in the front? I can't seem to find a good balance with them...

2. can i get a clearance look of your t-plate steering arm/linkage to servo area? It looks trick but I'd like to know how tall the servo arm needs to be so it doesn't bump the linkage swing arm against the T-plate...

grip is fine with them,i usually run 20 or 30 aw depending on how cold it is here:)

the servo arm is full length as it came with the servo,ill get some snaps of it later.
wanted it to be upright at dead centre:)

Matt, there is any chance to connect the servo horn directely to the knuckles ?

you could but it will never have equal steering both ways:rolleyes:
