The local track has a class that races JK Hawk 6 Wing cars on a King track. I picked one up and they are a lot of fun right out of the box. We can change the body, gears etc. I am looking to see if any one has some suggestions on gear/ drive ratio for the Hawk 6 and bodies as far as rib, no rib etc.? I have a lot of parts kicking around and would like to get a good base line to work with.

 

Thanks

what you have is almost a Group F $100. wing car...

for bodies, try:

O/S Viper .005

Camen SuPro .005 dimple

RedFox foxtail .005

 

Leave the ribs at the BBQ joint

 

.004x.004 wing kit

 

14/38 gearing

 

USRA says no bearing for the axle, so make sure to break in the bushings by installing and aligning the bushings and break them in by installing an old motor and hooking it to a power supply and let it run for a few hours at around 6 volts. make sure to oil the bushing every so often...

 

there's my $.03

Thanks Smokie,

 That's very helpful. I was thinking of starting with a 13/37. I will be setting up two cars so I will try one at 13/37 and one at 14/38 and see how they do. I have a couple Viper bodies so I will give them a try. I want to swap out the brushes and springs also.
