The car manufacturers must hate brushless. They have to design a car that can run FDRs from 11 down to, what, 4 (13.5t on small foams)? The pinion makers are in love, though.

Does anyone have a setup for short arms? Ive tried a few of the setups that have been posted but notice that they are all for long arms...

currently using graphite JRXS short arms, with hinges in the outermost pivots.

I run on a tight, medium bite carpet.

I think both are important, but a nice looking car is meaningless if it doesn't perform well. And I did have a similar problem to you running a small spur. I was able to correct it by changing the size of my gears, which it seems you can't do in your situation. I believe you're the guy Novak is making the 13mm rotor for, because it will let people use bigger gears on their 3.5's.

Can you change the timing on your Orion 3.5 for more torque and move to larger pinions?

I tried running short arms a few times, but my car always felt better with long. More traction and more cornerspeed. It would be a good idea to pick some up. Untill then, id basically just run the car a little softer.

i know what you mean i already had the timing advanced but i need it to go down 1 more teeth on the pinion to get the sweet spot!! I now have the correct spurs so no more need of the getto dremel!!! ps i dont run novak motors any more

What difference could you tell between the novak 3.5 and your current one?

the orion runs cooler,it has more drag brake,lighter than the novak and can carry more gear.
