Drifters Devil

Postby drifter_0089 » Mon May 20, 2013 5:47 pm

so Thursday last week i bought my devil from R2Hobbies paid for Thursday with ems and was sent the same day, to my surprise it got here today! was expecting tomorrow but hey no complaints here!

i bought the pre built version as i not that good at building cars and for the extra $10 i figured why not.

cars built pretty well apart from a little surface rust on the cvd shafts...not happy about that.
so Ive put it all together with my 9t ezrun combo for the time being till i get a sensored combo.

now i have a few questions, the car feels a little tight? like when i run the car give it a little throttle then let the gas off the rear wheels lock up, is that right? might be cos im going from shaft to belt but it still slides ok!
next is the front toe, should it be out as far as it is? (refer to pics) just curious, any tips would be great!
just had a closer look over the car and it seems like theres a bit of surface rust on my cvds/drive shafts and a few screws aswell just emailed r2 about this!

cheers drifter.

out of the box:

toe problems, and not my foot lol:

any tips im all ears, im trying to find a problem..when on throttle the car drives pretty good but as soon as i let off the throttle the cars rear wheels instantly lock up....weird.. maybe belts too tight? or could it just be from being FM? car has one way front and locked rear.

Budy the first thing you NEED to do is get Broadtech or StreetJam R31 CVDs, the R2Hobbies CVDs are going to break after the first few laps

So first run on the track with the car, was very taily and didnt feel like it had that much CS. then someone mentioned i should move the battery tray back, did so and it felt ALOT better but still doesnt have as much cs as i wished it hd a higher ratio but that will come with time, going to put a couple of little weights on the rear annd go from there, but as it is, i like it alot!

The first thing that I would have done would be to rebuild the entire kit. Because when I bought the Teh R31 I did notice that most of the parts needed to be shaved or modified due to fitment. I understand that you are new to building kits, but with these ones you'll need to verify all fitment for yourself. All arms without the shocks on should fall easily. Rebuild all of the CVD's with anti wear grease. Grease the diff cups as well. Make sure everything runs smoothly. Test every part of the car to confirm that all parts are free and not rubbing. Use the directions via the internet. Also look up more brand name manufactures instructions. This will help you to build the car properly and make it solid. Also look at forums to see what parts are the most common to fail. Learn from others mistakes. It took me 2 weeks to build my kit and countless hours of research. WELCOME TO THE HOBBY |O| . Get a setup station for your car. A cheap one like integy is good enough. I would use someone else's setup and drift with that for awhile until your comfortable with the car. Then change it because by then you would have figured out what you would like the car to do. As for the CS I did notice that these front motor kits have a lot of rear grip out of the box. I don't know what the CS ratio is but 2.0 or higher CS ratio is perfect for these chassis. Good luck :up: :up: :D

Thought you might have some info.

NOOOOOOOOOOO :o
I was hoping this car would get a great following.
All I really want to know for sure, is what diffs work on this car. And what parts from what cars will work for the centre pulley setups of the Devil Drift. I want to take mine up to 150% CS. Here in SA where I live the guys was very reluctant to start going CS. But since I got my devildrift, there have been 4 other guys who decided to try their hand at CS and one guy is even trying out RWD.

i loved the car just wanted to upgrade, the ota-r31 parts fit the center, the street jam pulleys. they were what i was about to buy. also i ran front one way and solid rear, worked awesome just make sure to move your batttery all the way bacl and maybe add some weight to the rear, slides heaps better!

The only 16fm parts know to fit are the suspension. It's r31 so it fits any r31 arms hubs all te suspension and steering rack.
This chassis is a copy of the active hobby FR conversion. Uses some ta06 parts like bulkheads and others. Check that kit out and you can see how it exactly resinous it. 16fm motor mount doesent even look the same.
The o my thing about the active FR kit is that since its made from ta06 and r31, it uses the gear drive in the front wich goes in the back of the the ta06. But a lot of people swap that out for a pulley drive so it looks identified to the devil after words. And you will have to make a front tensioner if you use the active motor mount do to the fact that a gear drive doesent have a belt there isn't a slot for it like the devil.
Hope that all made since lol but it you check out that Miranda do a little research on it you will see what I mean!
