That will allow you to fit more motors.
I got the flying fox layshaft in the car, so spur gear options are not a problem. I was just wondering what the norn was on this car for spur. Our track is 36x77, I have a sp lpf with the stock107 software and a sp 17.5, I just sold a HB cyclone that I ran this in and it ran best on our track at a 4.5fdr. The type-r that I got has a 116 spur on it now, so I went to put a 46 pinion on it and it wouldn't come close to going on, so I guess i'll drop down on the spur till I can get a pinion/spur combo to fit the car and give me the 4.6fdr for a starting piont.

Looks identical to the Demon 5040 I use. If it is it's got cell mounting lugs underneath so you will have to modify your Lipo tray (metal or plastic) for it to fit properly.

Default carpet foam setup

after reading some pages and others setups, it is my understanding that I will be needing 6 degree hubs in order to run indoor carpet foam setup, my question is will 4 degree hubs cut it? and please also recommened a pinion size for 13.5t.

thank you.

You could probably develop a setup around the 4 deg carriers it's just 6 deg is much more common and easier to drive.

One thing to remember, 4 degree hubs are better for hairpin type turns. 6 degree may be better suited for longer sweepers. My advice is to study the track layout and decide from there.

For my particular track, I thought 6 degree carriers were better, but after a while I started realizing how to apply the above knowledge.

Which ESC do you plan on using? This will determine which spur and pinion you use. For indoor racing on carpet, it is recommended that you use 64 pitch vs 48 as it allows for finer tuning.

last winter season i was using an lrp sphere.with a orion 13.5 motor.our track is a little bit bigger than yours and we would of have been using almost the same fdr.i used a 118 spur and a 45 pinion gear.

now i use the tekin rs pro...this set-up is way different as i am running a 6.75 fdr

hope this helps.

i also found that running foam tire pretty much anywhere that 4 degree hubs worked better for me...6 gave the car to much steering and made it feel twitchy.
although i am using 6 now.but dialed the car to them.4 gives the car i think much more of a relaxed/easy feeling drive.

hope this helps.

Default Front spool

I just picked up a used type-r with a buttload of parts but I need a front spool, can somebody give me a part number and tell me where is the best place to get parts for this car. Thanks, Greg.

Forgive me gents for I have sinned....

There is an Xray sat on my bench.

Trying something new for a while as I'm becoming increasingly disillusioned by the lack of support (i.e none) for this great car here in the UK. Very sad

I can't get any set up advice when I'm at a meeting as I'm often the only Losi runner.

The Type R is not being sold or retired and will most likely get some action again when I get fed up of trying to balance this orange thing.
