well in that case my diagram proves to be useful. Just times it by four, and put your motors as close to the axles as possible. And when you are running the line, only have it touch the chassis in one spot, so you'll get a smoother hop and it won't wear through as quick.


So in regards to running the line, don't do it like this...

that's the way the HH chassis are. But that means your line touches in 2 or more spots, which means that's two spots that it can wear through, which means it'll last half as long. I'm not saying it's an exact science, more of a general rule of thumb. :biggrin:

You would tie it to the top left corner of teh u bar before it curves down. I always use a dab of superglue to hold the string in pace or you can notch out the U bar on top where you plan to place to string. It helps keep things inline.
