Did you use the TC3 diff screw and nut? That usually solves it.

Yeah it doesnt handle for anything as it is likely going from 4wd to 2wd.

Default HELP/CONFUSED

Hello , sorry I am new too on road/TC5R , a few posts back someone asked what was the best FDR for a TC5R with a NOVAK 17.5 and the response was 4.2-3.8FDR use a 72t or 75t spur 48p. When I put either of those spurs in there is not enough adjustment room in the motor mount too use the correct pinion(19t/20t) to get that FDR. Am I missing something , not doing something right. Could someone please help I`ve got my first race starting tommorow and I just need too know what spur/pinion is best too start of with for the 17.5 on a medium size track or what I`m doing wrong? Thanks too all this is a great thread keep up the good work all!!

A 100 spur with a 52 pinion puts your FDR right at 3.8

Are you sure you have worked it out correctly? 72/20 is 7.2 overall..

72/34 would give you 4.2
64/32 would give you 4
61/32 would give you 3.8

To work out FDR you do

Spur / Pinion x internal ratio..

Example...

72 / 34 = 2.11

2.11 x 2 (tc5 internal ratio) = 4.23 FDR

In the order of operations doesn't multiplication precede division? Though I suppose in the case of calculating gear ratio, it doesn't affect the outcome.

They are on the same order, so if if you have them both, you just go left to right

Previous poster is correct. Multiplication and division have the same precedence so they are performed left to right. Same holds true for addition and subtraction once all the other operations are out of the way.

P(lease)

E(xcuse)

M(y)

D(ear)

A(unt

S(ally)

is the pnemonic we use to teach the order of operations, generally 6th-8th grade math. P(arenthese or grouping symbols), E(xponents), M(ultiplication and/or D(ivision) left to right, A(ddition) and/or S(ubtraction) again from left to right.

Doesn't matter if calculating gear ratios or whatever. To experiment try your hypothesis out...do the indicated multiplication first and then the division. You will end up with a very different (MUCH smaller, something just a bit over 1.0 in fact) result.
