Balancing gears,tires etc

I have a cheap little magnetic balancer that seems to do a decent job.But I am wondering if I should balance the whole assembly after I balance each part separately?

 

I seem to recall someone on here made a balancer for arms from razor blades.I think it was John but I cant seem to find it,but maybe that would work to balance the whole rotating assembly.

 

Also while posting what are your thoughts on lightening things like gears?I've done it for years off and on with no real negative affects.But its a bit fidly and I usually wonder if its worth it.

 

Thanks

thanks for any help.

 

 

Jack Beers still around?

Jack hand painted this interior for me, probably 15 to 20 yrs ago. Still in great shape and I just found a use for it. A new track in the area, Logan Ave Slotcar Raceway in Belvidere IL is opening up and they will be running 4.5 " stockcars as one of their classes. Thanks again Jack!

Redneck Motor Clips

Here's what I've done so far.  If you're going to use a fixed screw to attach the clip,  you can save some weight by making up your own clips.  Making the clip is fairly straight forward using an old braid.  I started off by drilling the starter hole in the clip with a 1.02 mm bit.  Then I threaded it through with the smallest screw (on the left side pic)  Clean off burrs as needed. On PS sealed motors, there are 2 different screws,  the middle screw is slightly larger in diameter.  The far right screw is from a Parma Death Star, too big for this purpose.  You will then solder on the lead wire, trim and cut the clip to size.

 

The screw goes in tight with the 1.02 mm hole.  Much tighter than the terminal hole.  I was able to use the larger screw after removing the smaller screw, but there isn't enough thick material on the terminal to securely hold the clip, unless you bore out the hole for a bigger size screw.  Not necessary  If you reverse the clip by placing it on the bottom and then run the (small) screw from the top,  there is enough grip in the clip to hold the clip securely.  That would the best approach, should be adequate.

 

If that seems to be inadequate, then a standard 1mm screw and nut combo will do the job

Race Results from MVH - 2/20, Coupes on the Royal

Coupes on the Royal – 2/20/18

 

This week it was time to gear down and race Coupes on the American Royal. It was a thin field with only five racers in attendance. After some consideration, race director Richard Payne decided we would run in 4/4 format with the odd man out running the race. Any de-slots would be a track call. To keep the track calls to a minimum, a track call would result in the loss of a lap for the cars leaving their lane.

 

Tech: 

tech 1.jpg

 

With only five racers the potential for a somewhat boring race existed at the start but once the race was under way it proved to be an exciting format to participate in. Competition was keen, passes were hair raising but well planned and there were multiple races within the race. 

 

By the mid-point of the race and change to the inner lanes, Dave Panich had logged 160 laps and held a two-lap lead on Rich Girvin who held a slim one-lap lead on Richard P, though Mr. Payne had two de-slots to Rich G and Dave’s zero. Dan Savage was in 4th with 151 laps but had quite a few de-slots while 6 laps back, Dick Griffin was driving very carefully but somewhat off the pace. There were multiple heats where cars ran nose-to-tail for a dozen laps or so until the leader would allow the pursuer to pass or one of the two would make a mistake and come out of the slot.

 

By the checkered flag, Dave had opened a 6-lap lead on Rich G to take the win. Richard P picked up his pace and mounted a challenge to Rich G but fell 9 sections short and had to settle for 3rd place. Both drivers had four de-slots so the track calls weren’t an issue when it came to the bottom two finishing positions on the podium. Dave ended up with only one de-slot while Dan won the de-slot competition with over 15. However, he finished 14 laps ahead of Dick (who had a few de-slots of his own). Thus, track calls didn’t impact the finishing order. The laps completed listed below are total laps without deductions.  

 

Fast-lap honors went to Dave with a 4.280, just .001 better than Richard P and Dan who were tied for second at 4.281.

 

Though attendance was limited there was abundant fun had by all.

 

Finishing order, laps completed, best-lap time and best-lap lane:

            1)      Dave Panich             322/21      4.280      BL     

            2)      Rich Girvin               316/24      4.343      OR

            3)      Richard Payne         316/15      4.281      YL

            4)      Dan Savage             305/6        4.281      YL

            5)      Dick Griffin               291/13      4.445      OR
