Brandon, Durham would be better, it would most likely be a better starting setup for me at Rosewood. Thanks

Default Ready for test run

Well after vacation, then indecision on motor -- ect. I finally got it together. I started with a Paradox 27T and will wet my whistle on that, and decide which BL to go to later. A friend of mine convinced me learning with my MM7700 on the SIR indoor track was a bad idea...prob. good advise. Anyway I will try it out Thurs. eve for first real run...wish me luck! Thanks to those that helped and gave S/U advise...let the fun begin!

Couple of pics of finished car.

Are any of you guys running 10.5 bl systems? The Peak one is supposed to be geared about 5 to 1 fdr so i bout a 34 tooth and i does not fit. i kind of want to switch to 64 pitch anyway so does 100/40 fit?

I think that you'll find that 100/40 is going to be pretty close to not fitting. 108/43 should give you enough room to gear up and down a little from where you're starting at.

For me, the bigger spurs work better because it moves the motor foreward in the car. I think PRS is going to make pinions up to 60... Robinson goes up to at least 45.

good to see people read all threads, 120 spur fits, with a max size oinion of 41 (64dp), which is idea for mod/brushless as 120/41 gives 5.85 fdr, would suggest a 116 for stock/19T as it drops the fdr to about 5.1 with a 41 so all ranges possible.

would only use smaller if running silver can 540 motors

I think I read his post...

I've also run the higher wind 13.5 and 10.5 brushless motors in the TC5. You need a pretty small spur to run them. Or really big pinions that most people don't have.

FYI, 116/41 is a 5.85 and not even close to the 5.00 to 1 that he's looking for as a starting point. 5.0 overall would need about a 46-47 pinion and most people don't have gears that big.

I am an Aussie and I will be the first to back up this statement. The Aussie forums are a top read if you have a spare couple of hours. Sorry to say it, you guys just don't flame like the true blue Aussies.

Hi all, i am a little confused how the droop is read on the setup sheets? It states 1 mm for the front and 2 mm for the rear and it is measured above ride height. Does this mean that if i am running a 5mm ride height, i would simply rest the chassis 6mm from the bench, then wind the droop screws until the front wheels are just touching the bench? Then raise the chassis to 7mm from the bench and adjust till the rear wheels touch the bench?

hope this makes sense, thanks, john

Basically, yeah...if your ride height is 5 then 1mm over means your tires will lift off the ground when your chassis is lifted over 6mm
