you can use any "standard" spur gear with the PRS adaptor, so you can run whatever you want.

The front looks cool but it looks like you started with the kit rear set-up and then busted your but trying to get it to rotate?

The reason I ask is that for me it was better to just go with the high rear roll center and tune it from there. Thoughts?

Brant,

I'm not sure if we really did start with the kit setup. Larry and myself actually just threw together a couple setups and went our own ways to start off. If one of us hit something, we could work off of that. Larry was the first to use the heavy rear bar. I was running a convential setup at first, like a .030 rear bar. I tried going to high rear roll center and that didn't help me enough. Believe me, we were all over the place with setup. Yes, we busted our butt to get steering. I was shocked too when I looked at Larry's car the first time. I wouldn't believe it. That is until I tried it and this past weekend was the first time. As far as the Anti-Squat... the track did have a few bumps in it. The Anti-Squat helped settle the car down and it helped turn in too. Can't complain about that. I'm guessing Jackson R/C required some sort of unique style setup. The only thing is, Larry has been running this setup for the past few weeks and it has worked at another track, so who knows - granted Larry's setup is a little different.

And no, the car didn't over rotate at all. It followed through corners just as it should. The only time it was a little hard to drive was when the tires had 3 or more runs on them. New and 2 run tires, it was unreal.

Hope that helps. I'm sure Larry will chime in too.

Yes sir, 0 degree rear hubs.

If PRS sells those gears then yes they will fit.
