Re: CS - Success Criteria

Upping your CS will require a play around with settings again, but mainly just practice with it.

Re: CS - Success Criteria

Calzone no drama dude, sort at a lose to what Moolz is actually asking. I mean if you want more counter steer its simple add more CS. The most simple and easy way to get more castor. Weight will induce more oversteer depending where they are but that means its increasing grip in the area its placed ...

Re: CS - Success Criteria

Don't mean to be rude but that is sort of silly advice, I may not be an expert at RC but I do understand real life car physics and also how they apply to RC cars. If what you were saying was the case we would all run 1.1 or 1.2 CS and all have big CS. If you want more counter steer then you need to ...

Re: CS - Success Criteria

If you want more CS you need a CS ratio of about 2.0 or higher. With a belt its all about being smooth, smooth steering and smooth throttle. You will be faster and better if you can not mash on the controls. Castor, if you can get your castor up to about 7 degrees or 9 degrees you will find that wil...

How did you figure that?
Did you forget to read the part that says you will no issues with an sensorless system if you have the right setup.
A motor and ESC combo with a second is a KISS setup, it will work no matter what the case.

Re: What should my CS FDR be? Details inside.

I know I cant use the stock spur and pinion sizes thats why I started this thread. I think your suggestion is actually dangerous, how a CS FDR of 12 would actually be beneficial for my 9.5T motor I have no idea butthat is the FDR I would get with a 14T pinion. Like the others said I think a 19-20 wi...

Re: What should my CS FDR be? Details inside.

So your saying the CS FDR does not really mean sh**, its the rear FDR i have to be worried about?
If thats the case a 22t pinion should bring it to around 6.7 rear FDR.

What should my CS FDR be? Details inside.

Ok here is my setup. Im currently using a 9.5T / 5208kv Yokomo BL-SP2 brushless with a 86 spur and 25 pinion. Where should i be aiming my FDR for? I believe my ESC is getting a little warm, with a 20T pinion my motor gets super hot, with 27T pinion my ESC gets super hot. Now im running a 25t with fa...

That's it, drifter24 made a similar mod on his VDF, the ccamber turnbuckles are linked to the steering.


Do you have link to his build, i cant find a driter24 on this forum.

Re: ESC is hot

Last night my motor got really hot so im unsure now, i emailed yokomo to find out what the safe FDR for the system im using is.
Once they tell me the safe FDR for my system i will adjust to suit.

Re: OTA R31 Virgin

The higher the ratio the more time you will spend counter steering it. I think with a belt for me personally 2.0 - 2.4 cs is nice.

Re: ESC is hot

Mine came with no fan on it and most people say the ESC and Motor should both be warm. If your ESC is hot its usually because something is not setup right. Sure it can run hot and it will work fine, but its not the best condition for it to run at.

ESC is hot

Hey lads, Running a Ota R31 chassis with 1.97 CS and my ESC is getting hot but my motor is still very cool. Motor and ESC is a Yokomo BL-SP2 9.5T brushless with sensor Spur is a 86T with a 25T pinion. The standard pinion was a 27T and I believe that made my FDR with my CS setting over 8. With the 25...

Re: OTA R31 Virgin

Well my OTA is all build now with motor and servo all attached and running 1.97 CS. I just purchased a new spur gears and moved pinion down to a 25t to bring my FDR to around 6.7 as it was at over 8.5 with the standard OTA 27t pinion. 6.7 FDR i think is the safe level for a 9.5T Yokomo brushless mot...

Re: RECOMMENDED MOTOR FOR CS DRIFTING

Non sensor motors need to have a good setup to make them nice and smooth from 0 to top end revs, you will find unless your running the perfect pinion and spur combination you will get some stuttering in the lower rev range with a non sensor motor. Just keep to a sensor motor to stay on the safe side...

Tonight i purchase new motor and some more CS parts, I will update with pictures soon. First is some 1.96CS then next week I will move onto 2.4 and upwards pending my feeling, but I really want full counter at all times no straight wheel hover craft action. You can get 1.96 out of the standard belts...

Re: RECOMMENDED MOTOR FOR CS DRIFTING

I'm not expert but it depends on where you drive. If you want something that will work on any type of course you could go for a 9 or 10 turn. If you drive on big open courses with big straights etc you might want a lower turn motor but anything really from 8-10 is going to work well pretty much ever...
