A few words about the club

Our goal is to have good clean fast and inexpensive fun racing. Your Box Stock car will run well. You don't need to change anything on it and you will have a blast in the club. Just add batteries and transponder. However we have found a few inexpensive parts that once upgraded increase consistency, speed, competition, and our overall fun. We'll leave more modifications for mod classes and discussions at the club. The following items have worked well at keeping the cars similar, while also creating a very fun head to head racing environment.

Is the car turning sharply in one direction and not the other?

  • The pinion gear may be touching the tire
  • Check that the front pair of tires are the same diameter
  • Check that the rear pair of tires are the same diameter
  • Check that the front pair of wheels match
  • Check that the rear pair of wheels match

Is the car unable to move but the servo motor still works to turn the wheels?

  • Check that the pinion gear is able to turn the spur gear
  • Check that the motor wires are connected to the main board
  • Check that the motor wires are connected to the motor
  • Check that the capacitors are correctly soldered to the motor
  • Check/reset transmitter throttle, acceleration, and boost settings
  • Attempt transmitter reset
  • Can you move in one direction and not the other?
    • Check/reset transmitter throttle, acceleration, and boost settings
    • Potentially blown fets on the board due to overstressing, replace board
  • Replace the motor
    • Still not working? Replace the board
