Nothing like soldering in the heat.
Got a few hours of no wife and kids, so I switched up the gear ratio of my TT-01. I’m running an 8.5 turn Viper motor and VTX10 ESC with a 2s lipo, and was running a 28/55 gear set for a final drive. It thermal shutdown when I went on long straits, and was impossible to control, so I put it back to the stock 19/61 for a 8.35 final drive, threw some heat sinks on the motor and ESC, and it got better. But boring, super slow. Now I put it to 23/58 to split the difference at 6.56, but it,s 30c outside now, so I’m charging my batteries, and I’ll see how she runs this evening. Also, the WordPress app for the iPhone likes to keep half the text behind the keyboard, so I’m typing blind. We’ll see how this post looks.

This stuff is magic. Sprayed my scratchy pots with it, spun them back and forth a bit, and the loosened right up. At first I thought I’d wrecked them, they got so loose. Continue reading “Back to my Amp”
My bass amp needs some love. It’s been a few years since anything good was done to it, the pots are scratchy and the inputs don’t always work, so it’s time to blow it open and do some much-needed surgery.
