Wihiii, motors finally arrived! Kuva

Kuva
Always the best part to open the packages. Kuva

Kuva
Hmmmmmm....

Kuva
Yeah. Correct. Brood Racing awesomeness! Kuva

Kuva
New nexus motors compared to Stubby. Kuva

Kuva
That is something else! Kuva

Kuva
Rear motor on it's place.

Kuva
Front as well.

Kuva
Soldering it on.

Kuva
All done. I want to have a go with it! Kuva

Kuva
Not just yet. Attaching motor covers first.

Kuva
Front cover assembled now. Yeah, it's a bit worn, but it'll do. Kuva

Kuva
Ready for test drive on the garage floor! Kuva

Kuva
RTR weight for 2015. Kuva Motors felt really nice. Suprisingly smooth to be honest. It'll be interesting to see how well they manage our indoor comp after three weeks.

Kuva
I can safely say, that Nexus motors seems to be quite a bought! Kuva Let's get back to this rig once the comp is near.

Has been a long time without even touching this rig. Still had few things to do before continuing to indoor comp next weekend.

Kuva
Shock filling in progress. Gonna try 40wt in all four shocks. Kuva

Kuva
Time to open the hood for checking the (shock) oils. Kuva

Kuva
RTR weight before comp. It's one fatty bully even with the lighweight motors. Kuva Aluminium screws are coming to next comp though. Kuva

Kuva
Will be cool comp with ten participants. Can't wait to challenge LaaLaa in his home ground. Last time we were at the same comp he beated me. Will be tough race for sure. Kuva

Kuva
Now that I remember, I haven't driven a single indoor comp with this rig. Time to make the first the good one. Kuva And it's the first test to my new motors as well. I'll add pics and video later on. Kuva

Okey, Indoor comp now behind without too great smile on my face.

Kuva
Comp spot was great. The best you can hope for in the middle of the winter. Kuva

Kuva
I was the first one to go on the first course.

Kuva
The new motors was really hard to predict. They were fast, maybe too fast for this terrain.

Kuva
I had 14t pinions and in the indoor course, there seemed to be at least 2t too much.

Kuva
On the other hand, when you needed the power... It was quaranteed brood power!! Kuva

Kuva
My driving wasn't too good either. Kuva

Kuva
For example this spot I made with my shafty easily, but no luck with the pro. Kuva

Kuva
At least I finished it. With third worst score though...

Kuva
I wasn't able to finish the next course. I didn't got a good feeling for the rig in whole day.

Kuva
This course went little better, but I was still sitting in the low end of the result field.

Kuva
Suspension felt a little stiff there, I might change the springs from rear shocks to red medium ones.

Kuva
Gate three and turning in the corner.

Kuva
Stop time!! Kuva

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=p ... NBGCW9vjns
Here is the last course on video. This was the best for me in the whole day. But still no good performance. Kuva

Kuva
On the other hand I ended up fourth with a worst comp of this rig's career. Lasse would've still be in his own league, even if my rig would have been working. But I would have give a hell of a fight to my brother of the second spot. Kuva Next time.

Now I have five weeks to get this dialed in for the next comp, which is (thank god) outdoors. Kuva Tires came yesterday, so I can soon start glueing. Kuva

Sometimes you have to have a bad comp, so you can remeber how good it feels not to have it. Kuva

I finally got the new tires for this thing.

Kuva
And start glueing.

Kuva
Exactly same kind of set that I've been using eight months now. Kuva

Kuva
I hate glueing as much as I hate soldering. Good thing, that I don't have to do this more often. Kuva

Kuva
Ready! Again, beautiful job on these Everett! Kuva

Kuva
Now attached to the rig.

Kuva
Looks like a new! Kuva

Kuva
I have to cut some pins off right away. Forgot about that. Kuva

Gonna do some testing weekend, if we find a place to try these out. Hoping there will be sunshine and many positive degrees outside! Kuva

I was doing some training and few modifications to the rig after the indoor comp.

Kuva
All of my rigs are almost ready. Here you can see some art made by Krawler Konceptz. KuvaKuva

Kuva
Back to last years Worlds suspension setup. LaaLaa was driving his SuDu Pro with this mod in the indoor comp, and it got me thinking, why I even changed it. Kuva

Kuva
Shock cap mod and some more ground clearance is achieved. Also a lot of stability.

Kuva
This time though, I hot glued the caps. No shock oil was found outside of the shock after ten batteries. Kuva Kuva

Kuva
Ready for training.

Kuva
Oh wait! I still have to cut some pins. On the left you can see my cutting style on the front tires.

Kuva
On the right there is my cutting to the rear tires.

Kuva
Now it's ready for testing! Kuva

Kuva
RFOT training day was about to begin! Kuva

Kuva
Rig felt much better with this suspension setup. But it still needs tuning here and there. Good thing is that I have time now. Kuva

Kuva
On sunday I drove again and the only problem was one missing knuckle screw. So this thing holds on to it's own pretty well. Kuva

Few more weeks before the comping season starts on it's full power. On that time I have to make this as good as possible. I'll continue on tuning and testing now. Kuva

Work with this rig continues.

Kuva
Replacing some of the steel hardware to aluminium.

Kuva
Also putting in a new set of shafts. Kuva

Kuva
Some weight saved.

Kuva
Also changed the hole of my drag link. It was getting too much contact with the steering link in the last hole. Kuva

Kuva
12g total saving. And it looks much better now. Kuva

Work contiues next weekend. I ordered 11t pinions for this thing to get the speed down with the new motors. We'll see how it does when those will arrive. Kuva

After many, many, many, many batteries of training I can share my feelings of the rig now.

Kuva
One of the spots we were training on. Lot's to drive in there. Kuva

Kuva
Now that I changed the front shafts to new ones, the rig is doing like it should. Just as well as in the Worlds last year. The motors are still an issue though. But hopefully the cure is on it's way. I ordered 12T and 11T pinions for testing. Can't wait to have another go with those. Kuva

Kuva
Skins have been in touch with the rocks, I'll have to admit that. Kuva

Once I have tested the new pinions, I'll post an update. Stay tuned! Kuva

Ok, time to get this thing working before the comp on saturday!

Kuva
I noticed something weird on the rear axle. Kuva

Kuva
Bend upper link holder. Kuva

Kuva
Luckily though, I had one as a spare. Kuva

Kuva
Maybe the damage was done when I was trying to get it on it's wheels at some point. Kuva

Kuva
Got myself a pair of 12T pinions from Heido. Thanks mate! KuvaKuva

Kuva
Pinion and upper link mount added.

Kuva
And the front pinion now as well. Time to try it out.

Kuva
The feeling for the motor slightly improved, but they still need a lot of power to start. I'll try with this setup on the next comp. That's the best way to test them out. Kuva

Kuva
All set for the comp. I do wish for a better position than last time. Kuva

Kuva
It'll be first comp this year outdoors in dry rocks. Rig has done well in that comp site, so everything should be ok for a top position. Kuva

As always pics and vids will follow.

And then...

Kuva
Time to go and test them new pinions on actual comp.

Kuva
A bit chilly in the morning, but the weather turned out to be just fine during the day. Kuva

Kuva
Koppensneller on the first course.

Kuva
The driving felt much better with smaller pinions. I now have 10t pinions on the way and I will test them next. With the 12t it was already half better than 14t.

Kuva
This was a day with lot's of good performances. I had five reverses and one roll over in total of the day. Kuva

Kuva
The courses were relatively easy, but it's also easy to do stupid and costy mistakes there.

Kuva
I'm satisfied of the overall performance now. This is good form to continue on training. Just gotta test them smaller pinions.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=p ... 4irL7dpMUE
And this is the first course. Full -50 points was a good way to start the day. Kuva

Kuva
Here are the results. Didn't score a cup point from course two cause of the roll over. Kuva

Next comp will be after two and a half weeks and in that time I will have to make the final setup for the season 2015. Kuva

Got a pair of Custom Fiber motor guards for this yesterday.

Kuva
Installed them before tomorrows competition.

Kuva
New versus old. Kuva

Kuva
I opened the roof and hood for setting my esc's again.

Kuva
Found nothing wrong in there. Maybe I just have to learn to drive...

Kuva
Nice soldering Samu... I fixed this right away. Kuva

Kuva
Motor guards on! Killer job on these Troy! Kuva

Kuva
My old worn out guards have done their job.

Kuva
Rig is now ready to go for another comp. We have a new comp ground, which doesn't let you do any mistakes if you want to be on top. Kuva

Kuva
Only three rigs have registered for the comp, that's a real pitty. Anyhow, it's gonna be a great battle! Kuva

Another comp behind with this rig. Still not satisfied... Kuva

Kuva
Comp started well. First course full house points. Kuva

Kuva
These pics are from the second course which was a tough one.

Kuva
Going for the first bonus.

Kuva
Cleared. I got full house score from this course as well. Kuva

Kuva
For shafty this gate five was a real pain in the ass. But for pro there was no problems.

Kuva
Gate six cleared!

Kuva
Second bonus gate.

Kuva
And third one.

Kuva
My brother have had exactly the same points than me. So there was no room for reverse... Kuva

Kuva
So I didn't. Kuva

Kuva
Going for the final gates.

Kuva
Tough little course.

Kuva
Finished with -50 points! Kuva

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8MgGMaRHiqE
Here is the third course on video. It was really walk thru for pro, so we decided to see how can make the fastest time. That went well. Kuva

Kuva
It all went wrong on the last course. I started it way over confident and on the last gates of the course it started to see as a terrible hurry and even worse driving. First I drove straight into my feet and then I ran out of battery. I wasn't able to clear the last bonus gate, so eventually I ended up last. Well, that's something new. Congrats to my brother, who drove amazing comp. Kuva

Kuva
The point difference isn't huge, but it is enough. Kuva

I've thought to get a set of good old Conflux motors for this thing. Maybe the handling would get back to "normal" as it was last year. I'll need to start practising now, cause the Nordics are just little over a month away. Kuva Next comp will be in the middle of may. Gonna need to run few batteries before it. Kuva

Time for a big change! Kuva

Kuva
Did a lot of training on last weekends. This was the last pic with them motors.

Kuva
I wasn't really satisfied with the Nexus motors. So I ordered a couple of these beasts. 30T Conflux's! Kuva We are going to work with Nexus motors to get them to work with my rig. But in the mean time I need some quaranteed performance. Kuva

Kuva
Back to the stubby motor guards. Kuva

Kuva
I tested it and it truely is a lot smoother on the start ups. It's a really vital thing on this sport. I have noticed it in the last comps. Kuva

Kuva
Weight got up again, but I'm always ready to switch lightness to performance. No questions asked.

Kuva
Few training batteries behind with the motors and I'm thrilled to go comping with this thing again! Kuva

Kuva
I changed (filled again) the shocks and put a new layer of hot glue on the shock caps to stop them from leaking. Koppensneller is ready to start the finnish series 2015 as a defending champion. Kuva Last time when we comped in Kuopio LaaLaa took the win. He is in the comp again, and I wish a fair comp just like last time. We'll see how it turns out. Pics and vids will follow! Kuva

First finnish series comp is now behind with a pleasing result.

Kuva
Comp place was a huge area in the middle part of Finland.

Kuva
Second course on the way.

Kuva
The new motors were perfect choise for the job. So smooth and well powered.

Kuva
Rigs performing beginned to remind me of the worlds last year.

Kuva
There was couple of easier courses and couple of really hardcore ones.

Kuva
I made full -50 points from first three courses and so did LaaLaa. So it was going to be battle till the end. Kuva

Kuva
On the last course LaaLaa managed to finish with zero points total.

Kuva
I wasn't so lucky. Got two gates till the gate eight and broke something from the front axle.

Kuva
After the fourth course +26 points, I slipped down to second.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=p ... scsIz3eA8M
Here is the first course on video. Little panic to the end, but didn't cost me any points luckily. Kuva

Kuva
Here are the results. Can't wait for another battle with Lasse. It's so much more fun to drive at your absolute limits to achieve the win. Kuva Now I need to find out what's wrong with my axle.


Kuva
Yesterday it was time to look what is wrong with my axle.

Kuva
Problem was, that it didn't have any power on the front axle. At first I thought it might be loose pinion gear, but after checking it out I had to look for another reason. It wasn't the locker either.

Kuva
Then I fought two hours with one screw in the axle. I drilled it open eventually.

Kuva
Here's the quilty bit. A pin was broken in one of the gears.

Kuva
I decided to install a whole new set of gears into it. Kuva

Kuva
Can't say that it was a "quick fix", but now it's at least done. Kuva

Kuva
Next comp is already tomorrow with four rigs on the line. It's the last practice before the Nordics, so I'll better make most of it. Pics and video will follow. Kuva

The last comp before Nordics is now done.

Kuva
After a little problems with the rig on last comp, everything was working great on this one. Kuva

Kuva
And the weather really was ideal for crawling.

Kuva
We tried to make tricky courses to get best possible training for Nordics.

Kuva
Bonus time. Kuva

Kuva
Now I finally have seattled to this setup once and for all.

Kuva
This was a real fun gate.

Kuva
Another bonus before the finish.

https://youtu.be/lAFgbfrsyAE
Course one here. It was the first course in the morning and because of that really slippery. I was the only one to finish this one. Kuva

Kuva
Victory! Allthough there was only four competitors... Kuva

Kuva
I didn't get the best score from one of the courses. Daaaarn... Kuva

Now it's time to get prepared for our departure to Nordics next wednesday. I'll put a little update before we go. I think no more training is needed. Maybe some batteries in Norway on thursday. Kuva

Ihan Bully 2:sen vakiovetarit. Kuvasta siis puuttuu tietysti knuckle ja hexin pinnireikää ei näy. Hämäävä kuvakulmakin siis.   :) Ei mitään erikoista näissä. Täytyy vaan vähän väliä vaihtaa, kun kuluvat nopeasti.
