I remember somewhere hearing the relationship of the pinion to spur didn't matter if the ratio was the same. ie 44/88 should be the same as a 40/80.
I run a 96 on tight tracks, If "sbrewer" is running on a 45 x 35 track he's gonna need the speed off the corners on that little track.

As "BCBud" said, you can achieve the same rollout, but move the weight of the motor. I personally will only go down to an 88 spur and max of a 96.

Medium width plate, turned around backwards.
I have the a-arms mounted in the long position and inline axles.

On high bite carpet, no, it's too aggressive with the stock upper arms.

Wayne,

Is there a benefit to placing the damper tubes up so high or did you move them up so they would not hit the wing plate?

Have you found any benefit to having damper tube flat versus angled?

Well I've got the rear pod done. Now the shock- what weight oil.On the front end do I go back to the standard servo like the picture or will it work reversed. I'm asking because it took me awhile this morning to reverse it.If not I'll go back to normal. Also what size tires as Mick said anything under 2.09 was questionable? Getting the car ready for the birds.

Frank Calandra and Dumper told me 30 wt oil in the center shock for all setups. So, that's what I do.

They were moved to so they wouldn't hit the side plates when I raised them to move the springs.

Then I tinkered with the tube angle and found the straighter it was with lighter lube the more linear it felt. When I got that feel the car rotated faster and had more chassis roll keeping the tires on the carpet.

At the local track I run just 1 tube with 20k in it

The only reason I put the servo in the position it is was I was trying different front plates and it was easier to keep the servo there and swap out plates

As for tires, I start mine at 2.08"
As traction builds I cut them down.
By the main at the Champs I was at 2.01"
