No mesh problems here using stock pinion and spur.

Out of curiosity, what is the stock pinion that comes with the kit, and the FDR with it and the 87 spur?

Having trouble searching for it specifically, with my kit on it's way to me in the post

20t pinion in kit. Internal gear ratio is 2.6 FDR calculation: Spur gear size divided by pinion size = ? Multiply answer times internal gear ratio. 87 divided by 20 = ? Multiple answer by IGR

Go to Novaks suggested FDR per motor sizes and application. Their FDR per different sized motors is really similar to other brands suggestions. If anything Novaks FDR's may be .5 higher than others.

No idea why HSV. Sorry my friend.

Did you try the gullwing CF tower with the flat a arms? I guess using the GW shock tower is much closer to the kits stock comp front shock tower.

Lower bit conditions don't lock the clicker down as you will like the off power steering coming into tight turns.

You will want the rear 6mm narrow belt and pulleys. Less drag. Try the slipper at the manual suggestion.

Quick question -

Is the gear diff included with the yz-2 the same as what is in the yz-4? I usually end up buying an extra or 2 to fill with different fluids for easier testing and swapping. Since I went ball diff in the yz-2 just would make it easier not to have to mess with buying another since I still have that extra one.

edit - just saw on amain they say compatibility is for both

I'm just curious about you guys breaking the arms on this car. I now have 4 race days on my car and have crashed (a lot) and some pretty hard crashes. The last one I bent a shock shaft and broke the drive cup on the front diff by hitting a brick pole at the track off a jump, but have not broken an arm yet. These are the original kit arms from the first batch of kits delivered and they were not boiled??????

I've broken one front and one rear arm so far.

The front one was on the first meeting, 2nd race with it, went into a chicane with too much confidence, thought there was a straight line through it, hit the track marking pipe, but there was something harder behind it. Result, broken front arm, snapped across the middle shock mounting hole. Didn't worry me too much, as I knew what I'd hit, plus it was around 0degreesC, so temperature might've had something to do with it.

Next meeting, I did the opposite side rear arm. This one was more of a worry, as I didn't think I'd hit anything, or if I did, it wasn't a hard hit. Snapped the arm across the inner hinge pin.

Car is from the first batch into the UK, arms weren't boiled.

I've since boiled the arms & had no more problems in two meetings.

It wasn't a wide-spread issue; I haven't broken any arms (or any part) either.

My kit was purchased on 11/18 in the states.
