Replacement gears are on the way and will be released within 1-2weeks max with reasonable prices

Also you see our new servo in above pictures which has metal internal gears and its digital.

Thank you all for your supports.

@wingbeat
As Matt notices you can find those items easily from EP helis. Red plastics inthe picture with offset handles are from a Kyosho rear damper (I guess from F1). Also notice that in this installation upper brace cancelled with securing the kingpin upside down. It is not a highly recomended option since you have limited control over camber and caster and also front ride height should be higher due to nut below the chasis.
However this installation can be done with regular upper braces also

@matt
Yes. It is very interesting, Although the specs on the sheet (ie torque, speed) are almost same with the standart, since its digital it holds same torque at all points so difference is like day and night with this servo.

@ancient artist;
Thanks again for your support. Our advantage is we are also high profile and experienced racers in many scales. And we try to be objective against our products. We know what we are, what we are not, what we want to be and a result we know what to do in next step. And we are trying to do them within our capabilities.

Wolf-
thanks for the details. How can this system work with the upper brace in place? Any pics of that set-up? It seems that it'd be very difficult to make it fit.

I'm going to look for a servo that isn't as tall so I can move it back and get the servo arm connection out from under the front brace. I suppose I could carve the arms off the TGR servo- I have the analog version. Then I could move it back by putting it in on a slight angle- the back of the servo would sit above the chassis, the ESC could easily be moved, perhaps to the front for better cooling.

MPJ makes both a short and a long ball link hardware for those out there whose LHS carry MPJ. There's also a 1.6mm that may work really well for the servo arm connection. It's through drilled. A ball could be attached to either side of the servo arm if one could move the servo back far enough.
product numbers-
2402- 1.6 short ball links
2406- M2- short ball link
2408- M2- long ball links
0204- M1,6 x 12 X 10 pieces
I'll post my solution when I get there.

fyi- I'm also working on a vac form body option. It's sloped back and will incorporate a wing for down force on the rear tires. Inspiration from these beauties...

jist got my sinister y/day


i've happy with everything minus the screws. i'm alittle unsure of how new mine is, i got it from atomic, and it's the pro.


no damper, new steering links. the knucles are silver and have the teflon, so i assume they're the new ones? correct me if i'm wrong. i'm going all out for the mod class though with this one, pics after it's done!

Yes it is one of the most new cars that we've released.
Unfortunately we not also happy with screws. We've prepared new hex drive screw sets for our cars and will be released shortly.

Hope you'll like the car and let us know about your progress.

I just purchased a sinister pro kit from a friend yesterday. He got everything and decided he probably wouldn't build it.
I am doing as much research as possible before I jump in to the build, and this thread is great.
I too commend you Wolf, it's a very beautiful chassis and to see the updates happening is encouraging.
I have been running a spinner in an x-mod for months now, and it totally turned that car into something else. The spinner is also a great product, and I'll probably purchase many more.
anyway, enough flattery and encouragement, here is my question:
Will the spinner support the Atomic Chili motor? Also, which PN motors will it support?
Thanks,
StuZ

...and just what might be the 'correct' gearing? ;-) a 6 or 7 tooth pinion?
Originally you suggested it would go into 'protect' mode.
Are you speaking from experience or hear-say on this?
I just finished my build, but still I look forward to taking a look at that steering tutorial. Will it be on this site? TGR.com.tr?
Is anyone running a mod PN motor? If so, which one?
Thanks all.

stuz,

I have been running with the chili, and if you want to go really fast you need the 9 tooth pinion gear but the Spinner is not upto it...
I ran it and after 5 minutes it stops... I guess it is protect mode that takes over, too bad they did not make it powerfull enough!!

I ran it later that day with nr 7 pinion but then you loose some speed, but it would seam that the chili enjoys it as it revs even more... and I am not sure how much speed you loose. On 7 tooth pinion it is OK, I have yet to try the 8 tooth one.
