If you had a tekin gen 2 esc, it would fit nicely behind the lipo. The only draw back is that you lose the option to position it for front/rear weight balance. I have since sold the type r that I had, but the one thing I liked about it was that it had the balance pin spots for front to rear along with left to right.
Now we have scales for this purpose, but I think gravity will always be best.

I never found those front/rear balance points to be much use, as you can adjust wheelbase and my Losi always ran best with a fairly heavy front-weight bias. Too much rear weight in a touring car with a spool will make the car loose.

Keep your eyes out, gonna put my bundle up on the chopping block with a ton of spares (NIB). Also has the Flying Fox Racing JRX-S Type R Layshaft (highly sought after).

Just have to get it all together and post. I know it will be in one of your good hands.

Stay tuned......

Last Sunday, I ran my losi type R in the 17.5 class.

It was very competitive but again I was missing a little bit of speed maybe 0.4 sec.

My electronic that I have is kind of old (maybe 5 years old) and I’m sure with a newer motor/esc and a fresh battery, that car will be a rocket !!!

Anyway, it is still fun to see a 15 years old car be very competitive !!!

Any help would be appreciated!

Im trying to set up my car for our Scale spec class most run between a 3.5 to 3.9 FDR running 25.5t motors.

My car came with a 116 spur and Was told this was a mod spur gear, so I picked up a 96T spur but none of the pinions I have can touch the spur gear and I have the motor fully forward. Biggest gear I have is a 50T pinion. Do i just see if I can find a 100T Spur or does anyone have any suggestions?

I ran a 53 pinion and a 100 spur when I ran it in vta. Was quick but we had a small track. Biggest thing with the 25.5 motors is rhythm and corner speed, so don't use breaks unless your going to hit something. Pm me if you need anything else.

I run a 108 spur and 48-52 pinion and that give me a FRD around 3.8

I think I tried a 96 and spur was too small for my pinion (53 is my biggest)

Default Full reboot

If you were able to do a full reboot of this car, what would you want to see improved?

With the new lower weight limits, I'd like to see a solid chassis with battery stops for starters.

A gear diff.

Steel outdrives for the spool.

Next...

Better heat treated axles for both front and rear that doesn't make itself an oval shaped holes for axle pins to jammed the Axle Bearings. just to think of it, pissing me off!
