I don't think he's asking for what motor he should run. 17.5 blinky is an actual class in some places.

That being said, I run a 6.5 (blinky) in mine and I'm running an 18t pinion (indoor astro track). For a 17.5 I would start with at least a 25t pinion, and go from there.

Does anyone have an outdoor low traction/loose dirt setup?

Have you checked the petit website for all the setups?

Boz's setup is a very good starting point for low grip dusty outdoors here in WA. I think Ash used a variation of this setup to win some stock race over there as well.

I had a look at that, but 7/7 diffs sounded a bit weird? Might try it anyway.
We race at night over here, wet/moist so it's loose and cloggy rather than loose and dusty.

I find a 10.5 no boost just right for our 65x75 indoor track, I've run down to a 6.5 and it's no "faster" (that means lap times to me, not speed). 21 pinion, boosted with 20. We only have one straight so power is kinda pointless.

edit definitely be fun to run a 17.5 4wbuggy, on the gas all the time and railing corners

Totally thrashed my car tonight, 6.5 was totally too much. Other than the straight it was CRAZY. I was 5'ing the double triple, completey cutting corners in the air, just way too much fun when you have way too much power. Needless to say my laptimes sucked but I don't care, it was fun. Ran some serious fast laps in blinky 17.5 2wbuggy and it was boring. I didn't take many tumbling crashes but plenty of giant air smack landings and of course direct nose dives into wet clay.
Awesome. I love this car.
I got two update kits sitting here unused. Got'em last week from my LHS.
Still running stock parts.

If anyone gets a update kit and already has the 4mm towers or steel towers. If you want to part with your tower re-enforcement pieces let me know. I'd like to aquire a second set. The camber mount piece and upper shock piece.

Thanks!

here in Aus, Stock 4wd is 17.5t blinky

25t and go from there, do you mean up or down (ie: try 26 then 27?). Sorry for the dumb questions, I am a total noob when it comes to this..

I have question about changing anti squat. Does it matter if raise the front or lower the rear to increase anti squat by 1 degree?

thanks,
roc

Asc,

I just starting practicing with mine last week. All stock, except pistons/oil, no upgrade parts yet. I run an indoor clay track with a 6.5 Reedy Sonic. Much fun! I have had my share of nose dives, slapping landings getting used to the car, but no breaks. Checked my diffs and no leaks, no cracks anywhere yet. Amain says my upgrade kit shipped today, but I will run it as is until something gives.

What kind of track and car setup are you using? My first day, I ran the complete stock clay setup. Having come from a B44.2, which I really do like, I sort of copied my shock setup and drilled out two hole pistons to 1.6 for the front and 1.7 for the rear. 35 wt front 30 wt rear. It is really quick, turns great, excellent punch. Maybe just a little loose in the rear if i really hit the throttle coming out of the corner, so I may add a little ballast or lighten the rear diff oil. Not sure yet. Too soon to say.

Any setup tips you may have would be appreciated.

Just a great car!

Mark
