Steering and jumping ability of the 2.0 combined with the ability to push the car hard of the 1.0! I had the BCE on my 1.0 and it was awesome,never bent anything and made the car amazing. Can't wait to get mine!
Thanks Donnie! Truck was dialed. Reminds me of my 1.0 with BCE chassis only better.

Icero, I'm running a 14 tooth pinion and the stock spur. If you use an orion speed contorl update the software to a four pole.

I used a 230mm and might need longer when I install the Orion esc.
Frank I recommend a 275 mm sensor cable with your orion. it fits perfect.

I see. I'm assuming that you are using a mod 1 pinion? Last time I raced, there was only pitch to worry about. Like I said before, some of this stuff is completely new to me.

And thanks for the help so far guys.

is it even worth it to replace the rear ring gear when it chunks teeth? will it just happen again?

If you broke teeth on the rear ring gear, something went wrong. Possibly you may need to shim the rear diff or your brakes are very high and also putting undue stress on the electronics and rest of the drivetrain. Try shimming the rear diff and all will be well.

..Set up ????
I am running a hybrid set up of sorts,some things from the 1.0 and the new 22 pistons and such, still feels really good but not stuck in yet.Should have mine in a day or two and am assuming it will be the missing link I am looking for.

Hacker07, Where should we be shimming the rear diffs if having problems with ring gear teeth breaking? Just wondering, i haven't had this issue. Also i'm running 5000 wt oil in front diff, 5000wt in the drive diff, and 3000wt oil in rear diff. are there any other oil combos you recommend? ps my truck is an animal with the orion speedo. have you tested the tekin rx8 2.0?
thanks,
oscar

For med to low bite that is a good diff setup. We have been testing higher diff fluids (7-7-5) but have been running on some really high bite lately. 5-7-5 has been what we were running the the latest posted setup.

You put shims between the diff case and the left side bearing to shim the rear diff closer to the pinion gear but make sure there is still some play as you don't want to shim too tight which is bad as well.

Ryan and I are both running the RX8 Gen 2 in our trucks and we love it.
