Dropping my PlanB/ACRC stock buggy in here. I'm excited to see how well this will do after more time getting used to it.

The CE manual gives a suggestion of 23 pinion and 78 spur for your 9.5 motor. The closest is 24 and 78 if I'm not mistaken.

Sorry I meant to write 24 and 81. Since you wrote for a 81 spur.

Not sure which location roughly matches this in aluminum hubs.


ok got it, thank you

Tested out the Xfinity Carbon Fiber Chassis today, Worked good on high bite. Use the side reinforcements too.

I think my car is at 1500 even. Still fine tuning but very happy. Getting to be where it's easy to drive and now just gotta practice the lines.

Track is high bite , hard packed clay and technical.

Fast guys are running lay down tranny's, YZ-2's and XB2's.

I was a little quick on the answer but your manual is your best bet for starting out with pinion and gearing .

Cuz it's essentially a Team Kit with an "option parts" bag thrown in. There's more redundant parts. Not only do you get two sets of turnbuckles (one set steel, one set blue anodized titanium). You also get two sets of bearings (one set black rubber sealed, one set FT blue rubber sealed), two sets of rear wheel hexes (one set plastic, one set aluminum), and two sets of front axles (one set steel, one set blue anodized aluminum).

IMO it's a "we got a crapload of these leftover B5M team kit parts that aren't selling so we'll throw them in with a B5M lite and call it the CE and charge them more for it" kit.
