I've completed my build, I can see I'm going to have to upgrade most of the drive train, In fact I'm going to order in the parts immediately and fit them before I take it for its first run. The steering also needs immediate attention.

I'd also like to swap out the dampers but the recommended items are out of stock at rcmart so they will have to wait.

Does anyone see any benefit to swapping out the shock tower for the carbon fibre items?

Yes you will need a huge pinion and a small spur.

Most all BL motor charts will show a 4.5 FDR as a starting point for a 13.5

With the 17.5s we run in RCGT its not uncommon to see some of us run 3.2 and at the Reedy Race I know some people who ran 2.9!

I'm getting a TB-03D the 29th, which is pretty much tomorrow in 5 minutes. Anyways I want to get it as good of a drifter as my Yokomo MR4TC SD CM.

I read on boards randomly that the TB-03D is smoother. And I noticed in pictures the TB-03 is symmetrical and the Yokomo MR4TC has a bulge on the side for the servo.

I am more into what's necessary for it. If it's good stock I'll keep it stock hop it up later.

What are some necessary hopups? Should I lock the rear diff get a one one too?

I plan to try and build it in on day, I never built a car before so feel free to give me some tips. Is it hard? I think the TB-03D is easier to build then the TB-03.

Thanks guys.

Just paid a visit to http://www.gearchart.com/ and generated this chart if anyone is looking into gearing, I also submitted the cars details so with a bit of luck it will be added to the list.

Thanks for the chart. What pinion and spur do I need as far as pitch? I called my LHS and he said, yes you may have a 46 pitch in there but may be different than the standard 46 he carries. He said it will be a metric in the Tamiya but similar. So if I need to change both, what are my options?

Is the spur bolt pattern standard and then I could change it to the style my LHS carries? I would think he has a lot of 64 pitch spurs and pinions since he does a lot of carpet there.

Go 64 pitch....

You have waaaayyy more tuning option with 64.

Also if you run 17.5BL you will need a spur gear in the range of 72-78 and pinions ranging from 45-60.

60 tooth pinions? Are you really gearing in the low 3s or is my math wrong?

Throw the Tamiya spur and pinion in the rubbish (seriously, if they go into the parts pile you may accidentally use them in the future) and just buy whatever pitch your LHS carries. They both do exactly the same job.

Looks to me like any generic spur will fit.

I run 3.6 now down from 3.9. 76/51 64 pitch . PRS gears. Very smooth
17.5 rcgt. motor temps at aprox. 155 deg after a 7min run so I could go lower

That's wickedly steep gearing, Higher then what we run here on silver can motors.

Certainly made me rethink what gearing I'm going to go for, I'm going to fit an 8.5 to mine but swap that out to a 13.5 (legal race motor here in NZ) when funds allow.

See the pics of my arta body. Notice the lack of rear bodywork and the small gray standoff's used on the body post's on the rear. Putting Body clips on have been a porblem on the arta body so they solve that They are Kenex toys and fit like a glove. That way the clips do not kill the body and no body slop in the rear

I have found that you gear brushless much different that brushed. we run 17.5 rcgt but you can use a stock 27 turn and be just as fast. It will come down to the driving for the most part. Running 27 t you gear my Tb03 at 5.2-5.6 and brushless at 3.4 to 3.9.
