im not sure what his fdr was but his dad did all the calculations for my fdr.
i went onto comeseethis.com and his site says im way undergeared. it says i should be running a 96 spur with a 67 pinion but that seems like it will make motor temps sky rocket
I think that it can be the rotor or the FDR.
Is he using the same internal gearing as you?
As he still uses the 16 than he has an other FDR.
I thought it was 16 and 18 to choose out. I didn't now that there was a 17 also.
Not each motor is as fast as the other. Is the motor temp the same?
Your rotor can also be the problem.
That loses power in time and it loses faster his power as it gets to hot.
Ask if you can try his motor and that they use your motor.
As that isn't the problem, than it is the FDR or your car runs heavier than there car.
