Hey guys, I just installed the Flying Fox layshaft and was going to put an order in for a variety of spurs. Do any of you have an recommendations on brands and sizes for the pit box. I know my local tracks will come into play on decision, but I hate to buy one or 2 spurs and pay $10 for shipping. Thanks.

Sorry to hear you're out, but hopefully the car goes to someone who also appreciates the design. Good car, I ought to know.

Here's Mike's thread ---> done with R/C ..selling all

I would recommend PRS 110-120 teeth. When I run mod (any layout) or 13.5 (on tighter layouts), I end up using the 128 tooth monsters.

Any one have a good rubber tire carpet setup to start out with.

Track has a mixture of tight and flowing areas and medium grip.

What classes are you running? In 10.5 I use 88-96T (48dp) spurs.

I use the HPI kevlar/carbon spurs (black) and have never regretted it one bit. You will have to enlarge 2 holes for it to fit the FF layshaft. Used to chew through a few RW ones, but since switching to a harder spur I haven't chomped one yet.

Hope it helps.

Thumbs up

Well, finally got to run my LRX-S TR for the first time yesterday. I am very happy! The car was very consistant. That's something I haven't had all summer. Going to make a couple of miner changes to see if handling can be improved just a tic better.
The first of the planned changes is to add a little flex in the chassis. There may be someone out there that will reconize this mod as I came up with this idea about 5 years ago for the HPI Micro RS4 & it works great. So I decided to incorporate it into this car.
Adding a little more speed will be the only other change I make before the next trip.
I'll let you know how it works.

Interesting!

A great idea that should work.


What are the screws for in the rear portion of the front deck?

Those are for two plastic blocks to hold the battery pack in place.

Hey guys. I just put together a new type r. I had run a TC5 for years. I have the Flyingfox layshaft. What are other upgrades I should do. I saw something about a rear camber link mod. Also, the cvd's are different than I am used to, shrink instead of set pins?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Default FDR & Rollout

Type R guys, please forgive the on-road newbie question.

I am trying to understand the relationship between FDR and suggested Rollout. I understand the math and how to get the numbers to work, but for some reason I am still a little confused.

The 2 local tracks that I frequent have suggested FDR's of 3.5 - 3.7 for one track and 3.9 - 4.1 for another track. Ok, I know how to get these numbers w/ spur and pinion selection.

Now in the Type R manual it puts emphasis on calculating rollout in order to find gearing selection. Ok, I can calculate rollout. Not a problem. I also noticed that rollout has a relationship based on motor turn. I plan on running a 17.5 and 13.5 motor.

Ok, that's what I know. Now, do I just figure out a S/P ration to get the desired FDR and not worry about rollout? Or is rollout already figured into the suggested FDR of a particular track?

I sincerely thank anyone who can help me.

I was going to ask something similar, I am changing from 10.5 to 17.5 and was wondering what FDR is suitable.
Will most likely be running 21.5 next year when our new rules come in.

The rollout or FDR is relevant far more to the motor and ESC you have than the chassis. I suggest you repost these questions in threads about your ESC. When you have your FDR then you can get an idea about spur/pinion combo's here.

On another subject I had some very good success with my Type-R (10.5) over the weekend at the 2010 XRAY Australia S.A EP Onroad Titles. Managed TQ after a epic battle with a X-Ray and took the 1st two A-finals un challenged. I would have finished in the top 5 in mod A in both runs. I'll post a setup (asphalt med grip) when I get a chance.
