Thanks... PPD has nice looking stuff but I run my lipo's in alot of vehicles so attaching weight to the battery pack is not an option for me. Maybe PPD could make a weighted battery strap and posts??? hint hint...

There is no way to make a strap or post weigh enough.

Rick posted that Associated may come out with weights that replace the posts.

If you get the diggity designs lipo holder then you dont need to attach the base plate to the lipo.

Anyone else had problems breaking their diff plates when running the composite outdrives? Ive broken 2. One while running and one while building. They break all the way through on the thin part. Seems weird that metal would break so easily.

I am new to touring and in need of some help on gearing. Should you stay with the 48 pitch that is stock on the TC5 or change it to the 64 pitch? And if you should change, can you guys tell me why? Also what is a good all around starting point with each one? rubber tires on asphalt, track is tight and med bite, 45x70, no sweeepers. THANKS IN ADVANCE

64 gives you more precision in gearing vs 48. 48 is more durable (for small rocks, etc that you can get running outside). For a starting point we would need to know what motor you are running.

I run 64 outside with no problems. I run a 102 tooth for a 10.5 motor.

I havent had a 13.5 in my car so I dont know for sure but I would guess a 98T 64P would be a good spur to use. 13.5 would require bigger pinions vs the 10.5 so you will need the extra room a smaller spur gear would give you. Someone else could probably confirm that.

I just shoe gooed side weight to PPD bottom plate. I then attached velcro to bottom plate and battery. Once battery strap is tightened down that battery isnt going anywhere(I use a orion 3600).

This gearing is for Foam tires at 60 mm. I havent take the time to figure the rollout. If you are running rubber tires you will need to go down on the pinion.

Using 48p gears start off with a 33 pin and 78 spur. This figures out to a 4.7 FDR. I ran the 48p gears and had no trouble. Again if you are running rubber tire you will use a smaller pinion due to the increased tire diameter and subsequent higher rollout.
