A little can be a lot when it comes to changing your cars settings and our easy methodical directions will guide you to the best Set-up to help you win and keep you winning.

It is generally cheaper than new, ready built and may come with a variety of expensive hop-ups already installed. Cheap, pre-loved bargains are always becoming available. However, depending on the age of your purchase, it may need a little tender loving care before you can take it out on the back yard. The one thing you will always need is an instruction manual. If not supplied with your purchase, they can often be downloaded from the Acme Racing website, or purchased separately on eBay. With an instruction manual, any problems with your model Buggy you may discover, can easily be fixed. Then, take a screwdriver and box spanner and check each self tapping screw and nut for security, taking care not to over tighten. Next, for those Acme Racing models with oil filled shock absorbers, remove them from the chassis and dismantle the coil springs. The damper shafts should push in and pull out with a smooth action. If you feel a jolt as you change direction, this means the oil has leaked out and must be topped up. At the same time, change the O-Ring seals to prevent more leakage. Also check the damper shafts for damage. If they are scratched, change them as soon as possible. Also, for added protection and if available for your Condor Pro model, fit an under guard to stop dirt and gravel entering the chassis. If possible, change them for titanium. The steel shafts wear and bend too easily. If you intend to race your Condor Pro Buggy model at a competitive level, I would also recommend you obtain and fit titanium pivot shafts, turnbuckles, tie rods and steering rods. A thin coat of grease is often used on internal gears and although this is fine for basic running around on the back yard, if you intend to race your Buggy at a higher level, this should be removed and replaced with racing oil (ZX1 or Teflon Oil). Of course, this should be reapplied after each race meeting. Head on collisions can easily damage the gear teeth on nylon and plastic spur gears.

Heavy impacts can also loosen the nuts or self tapping screws that hold the Nitro Engine in Position, allowing the pinion gear to pull out of mesh slightly and rip the tops off the teeth on your spur gear. To minimise this possibility, fit bolts with locking nuts to the Nitro Engine mount and remember to check them for security after every two or three runs. A simple thing like a loose fitting connector popping off could easily end your race, so better safe than sorry. Check out my Servo Information article. Dust and grit can get into these bearings and abrade the shafts. Therefore, you should replace them all with shielded ball bearings. If the model has been run with ring type bearings, you may have to change all the axles and driveshafts. For more information, take a look at my article, How to get the best from your Bearings. Finally, good luck with your Condor Pro model and good racing.Your first consideration should be the tail pipe. A number of models will take only a rear tail pipe configuration, but the majority will accept the more conventional side pipe. Beginners should consider something with a moderate amount of power and a rotary carburettor for easier controlled handling. For top level tarmac track racing or those with more experience, look for an engine with good low end torque that has a slide valve carburettor to give you fast acceleration out of the corners. So something less powerful with a rotary carburettor will provide you with the smooth acceleration and less wheel spin required for controlled dirt track racing.

For complete RC beginners, choosing the right servo can be confusing, so here are a few tips to point you in the right direction.

They will not function as they should without them. And if you are totally serious about your racing they should be glued to the rims.

You should also have at least three different compounds (Soft, Medium and Hard) for varying track temperatures in On Road tarmac racing Touring cars and varying pin sizes for carpet and Off Road racing Buggys and Trucks. Even the top level racers rely on a bit of local knowledge on tracks they have never raced before. The glow plug is new and works fine. Can anyone help with the factory settings for the high and low jets as I have been messing around with them and now dont know where they should be. Thanks Don't re prime and see if it starts Seem to have tried everything with no success. Could do with the factory settings for the jets to try that. Thanks It's the 18engine. Thanks Will try the hairdryer on it tomorrow and see if it makes any difference. There is serious compression on the engine even without fuel, wondering if I should try an extra head shim in.

I managed to pick the kit up for a bargain price as water damaged stock, I had looked at them before as a way for the wife to join in my hobby and learn how nitro rc works.We spent several evenings checking all thebparts were present before starting the build. We then built it as and when we had free time. Start to finish took about 10 hours. Most of this was because being a mechanic by trade every part was checked, cleaned and lubed before being fitted.Luckily with my mechanical background I quickly noticed this and was able to correct the problems. There are also a couple of parts that seem to be fitted out of order, such as the silencer hanger, that took an age to fiddle in.Everything was tight and traces of lube on the piston crown.My thinking was the wife could learn to run and repair her own car this way. On break in day I must say I was very nervous as it was her first attempt at nitro rc and she was realy looking forward to it.

Enigine primed easily and fired first pull. It then ran smoothly through its first tank. The rest of the break in went without a hitch. We have been out several times since and slowly tuned the motor, it runs nicely and starts well every time. Had about half a gallon of 16% through it now and its still very tight to pull until its warm. Only failure has been a pre glued tyre, this simply required a drop of glue ofter a collision with a rock pulled it from the rim.Fuel tube is poor quality, I used my own so cant coment if its fit for purpose. Rx box is too big with poor ariel hole, designed for 2.4mhz.I you take the time to build it properly and maintain it then I see no real issues as a starter buggy. Its quick enough for beginers, jumps and handles well and is easy to tune and set up. Even the tools that come with it are of acceptable quality. The glow starter however is fit only for the bin. I have just done the first upgrade, fitted a pair of traxxas shocks I had spare to the rear as the stock plastic ones were starting to leak and are not worth even attempting to rebuild.Sh engines are good they provide losi after all. Mayb lrp? Just compare sizes between ads. 300x600mm I think is about right for ?3 in black. But you can get any colour or Metallic, clear or oil spill chameleon I think they call it. Great stuff for chassis protection too. BBut then I read the reviews on the team infinity and got a revo instead. That had a terrible engine too tho. The kyosho pure ten alpha pipe looks near identical to this one but metal. But I snapped the stinger off mine fairly quick so mayb find a better one lol. Just wanted to get it running and see how it held up first. Very suprised, the wife and myself have really given it some stick and only slighty bent a front shock tower and pulled a tyre off. Bothout fault not the cars.Just wanted to get it running and see how it held up first.

Very suprised, the wife and myself have really given it some stick and only slighty bent a front shock tower and pulled a tyre off. Bothout fault not the cars.It's just the pipe, bot the elbow. My things to look out for would be as people have said the pipe, the infinity engines were impossible to tune with air leaks however so was to blame when I melted the standard one. Only parts I have left from mine are 2 steel spider gears and the alloy pipe (was available for about 10 quid off eBay). The other thing to be aware of are the diff internals, when mine did run it was good but ended up becoming 2 wheel drive regularly due to the diff being very weak, I ended up spending loads turning them all steel. In the end I sold all mine in parts as max as a car as a whole people get about 30-40 quid on ebay, whereas I got 25 for each diff and other small parts sold for 5 or 10 quid each They come with barely enough grease to pack them so I used some high temp silicon grease from work. Had a look at one last week and they still look like new. I will be getting some bearing for it though because its all on bushing. Project for the cold dark months.Oh yeah another thing I changed all the hinge pins to some long hinge pin screw type things that tamiya uses on its tl01 and I'm presuming many others, apart from the lower ones where the e clips were necessary as they hold a metal bar in place to keep the two arms together. The original hinge pins snapped regularly for me Like I said this came to me very soggy and at about same price as radio gear was worth. I was worried after reading reviews but was pleasantly surprised when we started to build, hence my review. Dont get me wrong, its far from perfect but a very usable basher for a newbie. My wife has no experience tuning nitro or running rc but she has managed to do most things on her own with a little guidance from me. I will keep an eye on the pins, no issues with them yet for me.

On the upgrade front as well as the diffs, shock towers are now ally and ally servo saver. The brake set up is shocking however, surprised it even works. Good job she uses my revo or something bigger and harder to stop. Lol.Been out bashing again today and yet again its taken it all in its stride. Had a slight issue with a rear wheel locking just as we were getting ready to leave. Pulled the diff when we got home expecting the worse but no, just coal dust behind the out drive of the diff. Good clean and re pack of the diff and alls good again. Noticed a wheel hex starting to look a bit tatty where the drive pin sits so they are up for replacement and taken measurements for nice bearings all round instead of naff bushings. They dont need replacing but its something I said needed doing from day one. The wife still loves it so Im happy. What's put me off is the reviews of the old kit. Engine is a nice.18 sh and is really strong and still very tight after over 2 gallons of 16%. I upgraded the bearings a few months back to get rid of the metal bushings as I simply dont like metal on metal. I upgraded the exhaust to aluminium one, 4.50 from ebay, as I prefer a metal pipe to plastic. Shocks are a bit poor, fitted spare Revo shocks to rear and thicker oil to fronts. If you do buy just make sure its the sh engine version, this is the latest version.What's put me off is the reviews of the old kit. What bushes did you upgrade. Also are they buyable parts or did you make your own?Only have my old basic hand tools leftI swoped them out for off the shelf rubber sealed bearings from Rc bearings, really good online bearing company, many on here use him. I can dig my order out and post up the quantity and sizes if that will help. You dont need anything special to build and enjoy this rc. Ours was built on the dinning room table mostly by my wife and is maintained in my home garage. If yoy do go ahead just take it easy with the build, I think most issues arise from rushed builds.

Take the time to set everything up nicely, no tight meshes or massive amounts of play or lash.What bushes did you upgrade. Also are they buyable parts or did you make your own?Only have my old basic hand tools leftAny recommendations on shops to use?There are a few sellers on ebay but I would message them before ordering to check its the Sh engine version. You should get it for 150 delivered to your door. Also worth looking at Blacksmith products for your starter nitro bits like starter kits and glow starters. Any other questions feel free to ask or drop me a pm, as you have seen there are a few on here who think they know it all but 99% of members are very polite and helpfulAny recommendations on shops to use?What would you recommend. I have also grabbed a fuel filter and a better quality fuel pipe. Anything else you think is worth it straight off the bat. Also is it a good idea to upgrade the spur gear straight away or have they already added a metal one? Personaly I used some Ep2 grease from work and have had no problems, sure its a bit heavy and crude but used in sensible amounts I have found it no problem.If the mesh is good then the plastic one is fine and provides a weak link should the drive train get jammed or grit get in between the spur and clutch bell. Steel on steel is also noisy. Everything ordered but battery's and the exhaust. Are normal rechargeable AA best to use or should I be getting some sort of pack and charger. Sorry about all the questions Both work equally as well. Let budget guide you, if you have batteries use them if your buying new then look at the price of batteries compared to pack and charger. We get around 2 hours bashing from 4 AA batteries, you will need 4 AAA batteries for the transmitter, again I use some rechargeable ones I had. If you use alkaline batteries buy decent ones or thet just wont perform.Paste as plain text instead Display as a link instead Clear editor Upload or insert images from URL.
