Yes it is 1.83 42 tooth diff pulley and a 23 tooth layshaft pulley 42/23. If you go wiht 41 diff pulley than it is 41/23.

Do you mean for rubber? If so i run a 118 and 50 to 53 to start and go from there. You can mesh up to a 55 with a 118 without any dremeling to the motor mount.

Hi guys need some help i am having a brain fart today (no change there)

trying to set my car up to a very low bite track for this week as the last few weeks i have had NO rear grip atall so i am relocating some electrics from the front and center mounting them to see if i get any benafits so first i was wondering has anyone had any luck with mounting brushless down the center fo the chassis will this provide more rear grip ?

also when setting up the droop to a setup sheet how to you measure 3mm above ride high i am a little confused with this

thanks for any help

I run mine with 13.5 Brushless with receiver and speedo mounted on top down the center. I like it and it seems to have no ill effects on handling. I have the speedo mounted pretty much dead center of the car with the receiver mounted forward.

Not confusing at all. To use your 2mm above ride height senario, you would have your ride height at say 5mm, droop would be 2 mm above that. What this means after you set ride height you put your gauge under the car and sit it on 7mm then adjust droop by raising the arm with the droop screw until you see daylight, then lower until you get tire contact. This is the way it was explained to me and also how I do it. If I am wrong I hope someone steps in to correct this.

The other thing is if it does not say like 2mm above ride height and just says 2mm, you would need an actual droop gauge to set it then. The method above was arrived at so you do not have to remove the wheels everytime to set droop.
