Hey guys, about to pull the trigger on either a prebuilt or build my own.

I have heard there are issues with the plastic middle spur gear. Should I get a metal one and if so, what do you recommend? Not a racer.

Also, what other weak parts should I stock up on or upgrade?

Finally, what is a good battery in regards to run time and reliability that is pretty good?

Off to read 250 pages of info

I would advise to NOT get the rtr. The kit has better components.

The tekin 1900 and smc 6500 packs give me 26 minutes of track time or 33 of just bashing around the track. They are the best price as well and I HIGHLY recommend them.

The metal spur gear is a must supposedly, idk I put one on initially so my plastic is my spare. Also they say to get the metal upper servo saver. Not sure why since my plastic one is holding up just fine. For the metal spur I'm running the 45t which is what everyone will say and a tekno 19t mod 1 pinion.

I put the 3s in this and it is so fast!! It is killing me not being able to race yet. I definitely don't need any more power.

SMC 6500 is probably the best bang for the buck.

Thank you so much for the "TLR Tuning Tips" link. Itīs so much help, but I donīt understand the diffeence between on-power steering and off-power steering. At which part of the turn does it occure? When you enter the turn, in the middle or at the exit? Lets say you have a narrow U-Turn kind of curve. Can you compare it to over- or understeering when you are pushing the throttle or not? Does it apply to the front or to the rear part of the car, or the car in general?


Another question I was wondering about: Letīs say you just built your kit with the exact same setup as in the manual. You go out on the track for the first time and you find, that the set-up of your car is not the way you like it. What do you change first? What has the biggest effect? Iīd probably go with ride height, or springs, camber, droop... too many options.

Got my first ever kit, the 3.0 E! Got through the last 50 pages of this thread, and it sounds like everyone enjoys (And will never go back from) the "battery forward" mod.
The cost drop of the 3.0 kit was impossible to pass up! Time to read the other 200+ pages.

I ordered a 46T pinion gear (LOSA3551) but once it was installed it was flush against the chassis and the housing, way too big! I'll see how the stock gear holds up through testing. I hope to find the part number in this thread somewhere for a metal 45T or 46T that fits.

Thanks for all the helpful info!
