I think I replied to all PM's. Please post feedback if you try one of the set-ups that apply to your type of track guidelines. Hopefully it gets you close but if not we can try things to get it closer to your liking, but other guys tried my car and all said it was comfortable to drive for our track.

KEY NOTES- At my home track when using Paragon, the car on Jaco's had way more steering than RP30's to the point the car almost wouldn't go around the track straight, it was in drift mode. With the different set-up it would run close times.

Midnight i am running a X ray 112 spur. What is everyone else using. Every KP spur i bought was warped. I do hope something is in the works for an aluminum spur gear mount, hopefully one that is drilled for both types of spur gears. I always had good luck with the Xenon spurs.

Here's the setup me and Christer used at the ISW. The tires are larger diameter than most other tires and also really heavy so they caused problems for pretty much everybody. Almost everybodys cars were traction rolling even in the mains.

Since people have been asking for setups that are suitable for high byte this should be a good option.

Default 64 pitch

Guys thank you all for the help with fitting a big pinion on the car. I seen someone running a 104/44 for stock a few pages back so I figured I'd start there. Our inside carpet track changes everyweek so its hard to get set on one gearing. The straight-aways are never no longer than 3/4 the lenght of RCMaddness. If anyone is familuar with that any help on a better starting point would be much appreciated.

I still can't see how you can fit a 104/44 ratio in there. Again, am I missing something? I couldn't fit 87/36, had to change to an 84 tooth spur...

I am actually running 112/44 believe it or not and trust me the motor is shoved all the way over. I noticed that on TIRs website they lest that layshaft as a 415/ ta05 part. It makes me wonder if that is the only option. As much as i like the rest of the car that part always seemed like a weak link.
