Mjk Fly Truck Chassis

GRUNZ's Photo GRUNZ 19 Jan 2019

thanks. Looking forward to them.
by the way, the new scalex truck are really great for what they cost.
Out of the box they work absolutely fine (minus the stock motor)...even the original tyres are great after some trueing and a bit of oil.
Will post a review of how I did set up mine.

Here's the Bug, it's the lightweight race version from Fly. It's low because of the small wheels and it needs very little lead, feels like a Scalex GT to drive on home tracks.

The Sisu is bigger and has more weight up top so needs a lot of lead to keep it planted. It's 2/10 ths faster on the 8 lane commercial track at Way2fast and needs a different driving style - brake early and coast into the corner and keep the speed constant so it's quick out of the corner.

I'm not happy with how easy it deslots on home tracks (tighter corners than the 8 lane track) so I'll move the lead in the middle to the front of the chassis to see if that helps.

We use the Fly Truck Proxy rules for our truck class, so minimum Tyre diameter is 25mm and they still look small.
Thst Buggy looks like it has Go Kart wheels!

21mm, Yellowdogs off a Carrera CanAm. That's how it can get away with weighing only 142 g compared to the Sisu at 213 g.

What's the wheel base on a fly truck?

Paul it sounds like you don’t have enough guide in the slot on the Sisu have you thought about trying a different guide before moving weight?

The go to guide used to be the Ninco Pro with the spring fitted, no longer available so maybe a Scale Auto?

The Early Buggy is the best truck by far,with 21mm wheels is should be unbeatable.
I suppose the interior has been gutted as well,most things up there have to guts and we elected them!

The Sisu has the Ninco sprung guide, the Bug has a Slot.it wood guide.

Interior of the Bug is standard but a lot of the plastic frame that holds the body to the chassis has been cut away to save weight.

Unlike the Tassie truck drivers ours only come with 1 head so no need to lighten the interior. ;)

Now that we've done a few races with the trucks the lightweight Bug does the most laps in a race but the fastest truck (lap time) is the Sisu. My Sisu is quick but too quirky on the limit. It's running no weight inside (above) the chassis, all the lead is under the chassis in the recess behind the guide and a strip across the chassis in front of the front wheels. When pushed hard the rear wheels grip and it tips over. I might try more lead in front of the front wheels and change the single rear wheels back to the dual wheels to reduce the grip.
