+1 with the d3.5 with a Ht rotor, an max timing I always ended up with 31-69. That always felt the best for overall power on the bottom and top end.

^^^^ At 35/69 Are you running the STRC motor plate in order to have it fit? I know that gives you one more tooth or so over the stock plate. Mine is at 33/69 and temps are 95-100 so I am adding a tooth.

I did forget to mention Im running the broad range rotor, my buddy is geared 32\69 on a tekin Gen 2 and I can out motor him basically everywhere on our track. I'm sure with a different motor id be geared more similar to the standard

I had a few laps yesterday, out of the box it handles well. Made some adjustments on the rear shocks and it drives much better. Cleared a tabletop twice till i managed to broke the rear hub. Are the hubs on the pro kit and rtr the same? Same material? And just an update the shocks are still holding well.
