Will be using four scales to balance car out once esc arrives.
Yes, I have been using all 3 for over a year now. I run a Reedy 5A pack though. My car balances perfectly with the edge of the battery pushed in about 3mm from edge of chassis, however this is dependent of the electronics you use. I did shim the Diggity brace up 2mm and now I have yet to have the battery fall out using the battery strap, HOWEVER as of last time out, I started taping my packs in. I was about 15g over weight (1500g min), and taking the battery tray out, along with the associated strap hardware, I am now 5g under depending on body and paint used.

I did find the larger of the Diggity braces to actually be wider/longer than what he specifies. Ill give you the actual measurements later today of both non-offset braces. I have also found the SMC batteries size measurements to be off as well, as the case is not perfectly rectangular. (The middle seam is puffed out on all SMC packs that I have seen with Deans connectors)

The stock pinion is 87 tooth.
This is the first time I have run a small KV motor. These numbers seem odd to me, but I go with experts here.
So need to order some Pinions and Spurs here.
What would be a set to get?
I am thinking a 78T spur, a 75T spur, and some monster large pinions, like 30T, 32T, 35T?
All my pinions are 12-18 tooth range.
What gearing would I use to run a 13.5 motor in the 17.5 class?
That would be go for me to start slower.
What final drive ratio should I look for to keep my motor cool?
Associated said 4.42 and you say 5.2, so I guess somewhere in between these numbers will be ok?

I called Associated and they said run 73/33, or 73/34. The funny thing is I can't find a 73T Spur in there catalog, I only see a 72T and a 75T.
Thanks for the advice.

Here is his ebay auction. It has ended, but I talk to him through there. He seems busy though. He got back to me a few times, but it has been a week or more now with no response.

Will be using four scales to balance car out once esc arrives.
I use the wide offset one with a Reedy 35c (Added about a 2mm shim to lock ing battery). I had an LRP TC Spec, Novak 17.5, Micro Spektrum and Airtronics 9360. I removed the PPD plate (Sorry Kevin!) and needed to add 35 gr to top of battery stap. It was perfect.

Since I changed ESC and new motor arriving today I will have to check again...

Just got a hold of a couple of spools off eBay, one slipper and one fixed. Was wandering if people use 'blades' or anything on the outdrives? If so do AE do any or do other brands fit?

Cheers

No it has nothing to do with not liking it. Actually the car was better than it has been since I bought about 2 months ago. I'm switching to another car as I have a deal to run something else.

What I found at are track with the Exotek chassis is I had more traction. I ran 2.5 degrees of rear toe in per side and yesturday I easily was able to 1.5 degrees of teo a side with zero side effect. It was just as hooked up as before but I took a tenth a lap off my time using worn out tires as it was the 3rd week on them. I'm actually very impressed with the chassis overall and if I didn't get a ride I would not of sold the car as the Exotech chassis really was a nice improvement. Steering was very smooth and neutral at are track and weight balance on my car was excellent. On the tweak station I was less than a 1/4 on any one shock differance and thats it.

The fit and finish are excellent on the chassis and I would buy from Exotech again if for whatever reason if I bought another TC5 or even his new Schumahcer MI3 chassis. Very nice stuff.
