39.58 (56mm)
You can go to gearchart.com and use that to help with rollout. I usually print out a couple sheet ahead and that way I have everything right in front of me

First time out w/ the box stock Foam kit setup, I was .3 faster w/ the tc5 over my tc4ft (comp'n fastest lap to fastest lap)...AND like crum stated....NO torque steer like the shaft driven cars! stock setup was ok but I think it can be alot better, trying Keven's birds setup soon.

I love mine over the tc4ft! the only think I don't like but all the good TC cars are like this, is the motor layout...stickn out the side. I think the motor layout/weight distrubution of the tc4/3s is a more centralized design. ..nobody (hardly) runs old nimh packs and manufactors need to get to a more 'mass centralized' layout w/ all the options/sizes lipos can be made. hopefully the next gen of TC chassis's won't be tied to old nimh pack thinking. I'm no expert but mass centralization is in all forms of scale racing for some time now...and it works. RC needs to catch up!

Ever looked at a losi jrxs-r or the team Magic E4. They are very centralized. Forgot the old pro 3. http://www.hpiracing.com/kits/pro3/p3-m.htm They stop making many years ago.

Here's a fact of physics: Long and skinny has more rotational inertia than square.

For a 17.5, I know a FDR of around 3 is a good starting point. What Spur gears, 64 Pitch, work with the TC5 to get this FDR?

Thanks in advance,
Paul

The last time I checked Keven was running the PPD Billet lipo ballast kit.
