Id run the RW 81. You can get them on ebay, and they ship really really fast. For an unboosted 10.5, id run 81/27

Sounds like id lean more towards RM3. Can't say for sure without driving on it... If forward traction tends to be a serioius issue, the RM4 will help, but it sounds like forward traction isn't an issue if you are getting nice tire wear, so id start with RM3

I'm going to run a tekin 10.5 combo with 20%boost. What gearing is recommended?

On the Tekin, boost is measured in degrees, and it gets applied in an RPM range, so how much you drop your gearing depends greatly on the boost settings you set. For more detailed help on that, I would check out the RS thread in the onroad forum.

For offroad, i would prefer to run a 9.5 no boost, over a 10.5 with boost, (if more motor is needed), and gear appropriately. In other words, pick the appropriate motor wind for your application, or for how much power your a looking for first, before you worry about dynamic timing.

10.5 boosted try the setups we have on the website:

http://www.teamtekin.com/hotwire/ESCsetups/index.html

Gearing for the Dex 10.5 boosted would be 81/24-25 on most indoor tracks. Layout and size are all factors of gearing.

I agree with Cpt. though. I run an 8.5 and often am in blinky mode which is no timing. Geared 87/26 last night at the local indoor track.

I was running the 10.5 on my 22 with 20degree boost 9k-30k range. I'm asking cuz I have 24, 26, 28, and 30t pinions. Will the stock spur work or should I get a lower tooth spur or smaller pinion?

Thanks,

Dan

The Stock spur only allows for up to a 26 if memory serves me correctly. Hence the reason for the smaller spurs.

The largest I could fit and still have ANY wiggle room between the teeth at all, was a 25. 25/87 is undergeared even for an 8.5, let alone a 10.5 If you want to run a 10.5, you will either need to elongate the motor screw holes so you can move the motor back, giving more room for a larger pinion (not recommended), or you can splurge on a $7 spur gear from RW.

ballcups are suspect but it seems that aligning them and pre-threading the holes helps alot, which makes sense.
what is the final verdict on the wheel hexes and wheels? do i need to make some adapters with different size hexes?
i already have the ID clips coming from mcmaster for the ball dif issues, is that all that is needed? what size are the dif balls?

has anyone in America even bothered with mid-motor?

?
Wow, im a little shocked that i cant get some simple answers, is this thing on or did i miss a memo or something?

Holycrap dude, i gave you a massive reply, and so did hopsing. (EDIT: and so did jonny) Did you want us to PM you the answers?

(EDIT: sorry to give you a hard time, man... but the least you could do for those of us that take a lot of time to answer everybodies question, is meet us half way in looking for the answers that we post rather than get upset when they aren't on the most current page.)

It just moves fast Marcus- Captain and another guy got back to you a page back. The only thing not addressed was your concern on the rear hubs- are you looking to run 22 wheels or Kyosho wheels? The 14mm hexes work great and aluminum ones are coming soon. With some light work (which I know you're capable of) you could makw some 12mm hexes work. Or you can get the distance shim and cone washer from the dex410 and use B4 rears with a shorter drive pin. We did this with the stock pin to use our old wheels from the 410 until last week when I got up the ambition to cut them all off and glue up the new style hex wheels.
