I run a 104/53 with the prs adapter and no problem with the mesh. I could probably go down to a 100 but haven't tried.

I forgot to mention I already have a PRS adapter and 100 and 108 spur, along with some bigger Losi's. I was just assuming a 17.5 would need rather large pinions when I bought mine. So, do you think I will need smaller than a 100t spur, or larger than a 56t pinion? I have looked, but there doesnt seem to be lot of 17.5 info out there yet.

I have been using a 108 spur for 17.5, you can mesh a 60 or slightly more, but there is usually no need for that much pinion....i have found 51 to 54 is plenty, depending on tire size.

I'm sure this has been asked before but what does everyone do to get their car up to weight with a Lipo?
I have some trackpower 4900 batts and all ready to I'm 200g light!!
I have one of the metal lipo trays but its too thick and I dont want to grind the bulk head near the centre shaft.

Any ideas guys?

Thanks

Do you have a Losi lipo tray or one of those steel plates? I have the Losi tray and a Trakpower 4900 and it fits fine. You just have to remove about 3/4" of the shrinkwrap in the back to clear the bulkhead and the pulleys.

I did think about that but my club doesnt allow modification of lipos.
I suppose I could just add weight to the chassis it just seems a shame to mess up all the balance that the R has.

What about Lipo Lead? Im gonna get a #2 which is 2.2oz and just lay on top of my lipo. I heard you need to add weight to the top of lipos anyway on the Type R to help your roll center.

Has anyone ever used short neck ball studs on the servo and steering linkage to level it out and keep it from wiping on the top chassis plate? And if so which ball studs did you use? The only Losi ones I see are these Ti ones.

Default Motor Fans for Brushless?

Just wondering how many of you out there run this car with the optional motor fans? Do you run them with brushless motors? If so... can you tell a difference? Can you actually push the motor more? Gear it higher?

What Fans work?

Thanks,

I bought these fans from Associated and they work really well. Dual 20mm's pre-wired so you just have to plug them in to your receiver. If you wanted to you could buy that fan kit and add a third, seems like overkill to me though. You can put dual 25mm's on the top if you choose, but you would have to wire them your self. Someone else might be able to speak as to how much performance you gain with them?
