I tried a few things, but kept coming back to this. Give it a try and see what you think.

Thanks for the additional setup to try. Would you recomend any changes for 6 cell stock?

Okay, I've adjusted the setup. Sorry for the confusion.

I'm in the process of rebuilding my shocks. What is the best way to take out the black plastic piece that goes inside the shock body without doing any damage to it.

Also can anyone give me a part # for the shock rebuild kit.


Thanks

Default FT Diff Nut

Can you buy the FT diff nut seperately? Mine stripped out while I was building it. If so what is the part #?

hey all, I just got done building my new TC5. I have one problem. I was told to run a 69 spur and 28 pinion with my 13.5 brushless. I tried to put the motor in and I can't get the motor close enough to the spur there is about a 2mm gap at its closest, is there something that I am missing or what other gear numbers should I use? sorry if this has been talked about earlier in this thread.

I just picked up a LRP 13.5. Can someone give me a starting point on gearing for rubber tires? My local carpet track is about 40w x 75l. Any help would be great.

I have seen some factory guys running about .5 mm more ride height in the rear of their cars. What benefit does this have?

5-5.5 fdr would be a good starting point our track is just about the same size.

Im running 5.02 right now under similar conditions. I highly recommend the sintered rotor to keep temps down though. It will drop you close to 10 degs. If your running bonded rotor then prob. want 5.2 to 5.5 range.
