TommyAfrica, that seems like a strange gear combination for the motor/spur. What are the ratios like?

I'm currently running mid 3s
80 and 50 tooth pinion
But I'll be going to 88 spur once I get mine replaced wreck it that's why it's kinda odd looking
Very fast but lacks a touch of infield zip
Still within 160degrees

Hi

Just want to know what pitch and brand of spur you are running to fit the TA06?

I also would like to get the FDR to be around 4.

Cheers

Kimbrough and Robinson are excellent choices
88 and 48 will get you there
3.98 or something

Lethal, I ended up gearing down to a 99/42. That puts it to a 5.11 FDR.
The track is big, but it also has a HUGE technical infield, so with the 43, I just didn't have the punch out of the corner I wanted. They are changing the layout now for January, so We'll see what changes I make now.

Took 4th in the A main on Saturday, car was fast. I got caught off guard when the grip came up, and finally tried a thicker rear diff oil. (3k instead of 1k) It definately seemed to help, but it was still touchy with the grip being so high.

I raced mine quite a bit and my drag brake was on heavy. The pin that holds the white gear has wobbled loose. I upgraded to the Eagle racing for $16 for both sides and the alum is MUCH less likely to wobble.

Ironically, I got the front bulkhead, motor fan mount, gears(both center pulley ones and the main gear) the center gear holder, carbon chassis conversion, carbon IFS conversion, plus some other parts for the same price as the rest fo the carbon conversions. I have VERY little concern for stripped holes, and chassi flex. I am just curious about weight...

thanks for the quick reply
but I just wanted to doublecheck if there's is any slack out of the box on a newly installed ta06pro kit
no wobbling orso...the belt themselves are not lose or anything. there's only some slack in de direction of the arrows (see in my attachment)
I can turn 1 belt slightly whitout the second smaller belt turning along instantly.
Is that normal or should they be 100% fixed to eachother ?

The parts are plastic, they will wear. there are some tolerances that may be greater or less than another kit because of the cooling of the plastic.

take the white part of the gear offand see if the black part(still on the shaft with the pin) has play, if yes, then that is the issue. If no, put the white part on the black one and see if the play is evident.

Do each side one time. It may be the play between the white/black or pin/black part.... only way to be sure is to test each individually.
