Just thought I'd post a quick heads-up here...

A few pages back in this thread I asked if anyone knew of a PDF reader that would allow us to change the setup sheets and save the changes... Adobe reader doesn't save changes, and their Acrobat software is a bit pricey at $299... Mike Haynes made the suggestion to fill in the form using Adobe Reader, and then using the snapshot tool to save the completed setup sheet as a "gif" file. That works, but it's tedious to edit the gif if you make minor changes...

I've found a freeware pdf reader called Foxit reader which allows you to make changes to the pdf forms and save and/or print the changes. I downloaded it from Tucows...http://www.tucows.com

Just wanted to mention it here in case it could be useful for anyone else.

Trips, foxit reader is my preferred pdf reader. Direct link to their site:

When you save the alterred sheet, does it put red text saying 'trial version' on the sheet?

Default Gearing Question

Hi there,

What is everyone running for gearing with a 17.5 and rubber tires. All the reading I have been doing people are usually running 3-4 FDR. This looks to be a possible issue unless someone has a suggestion. The largest pinion I can get locally is a 47 and the smallest spur I have seen for the losi is a 118 which only give a FDR of 4.59. Any suggestions?

Thanks
Chris

I just started running 17.5 rubber. I'm used to running 13.5 foam. I'm running a 4.2 fdr on our track. 66x43 carpet track. Running 112/48 to get the ratio. Using a prs spur gear and the prs adapter.

AE used to sell a fan kit for their TC4, I used those fans since they were already wired up with a connector and ready to go

Do you know if they were 20x20's or 25x25's? Thanks for the tip Matt.

I don't know what the size was but they are the "right" size (they screw into the bulkheads fine)

does anyone know what a good gear ratio is for a 17.5 with foam tires on a high bite track. I was told to gear it around 4.2-4.6 fdr but i dont really know how to calculate that.
