If u run a Tekin you'll be at a 5.5 to 6 FDR.

Spur/pinion x 2.0
(40t diff pulley/20tooth drive pulley = 2.0)
If your using a V3 motor they like to be geared a little lower then others... They pull very well.

Your FDR could vary from high 4's to high 6's depending on the track, so I would get a decent range to cater for all conditions...

Hey Mike. Sounds like they're running about 3.6-3.8 locally. You can start somewhere in there and keep track of temps.

Is the Duo3 a good motor. What is the difference between the Duo3 and the Tekin redline motor.

The Duo3 motors are pretty good. Just need to watch the temps carefully. I haven't run a tekin motor in awhile, so I can't make a judgement on them. If you're looking to buy a new motor, I'd suggest the new Reedy Sonic. Very fast, very smooth, and temps have been very good.

we've had a lot of success with Thunder Power motors in Touring Car blinky and boosted classes.

I personally like the speed passion 17.5 MMM's and the 1 cell motors for my touring car in spec racing. I put the 30 degree boards in the motors.

Ok havnt heard much about the new ex yet
But from lookin at proto pics I'm wondering how u change;
role center /track width/ toe, sweep /anti-sqat/ anti-dive ?
I'm seeing it work like the old tc3 ,that was the last car I had that used that style of inner mount.
Just seems that to make all the changes u can currently make for $15 worth of washers has to be done with 20 different mounts .
So how's it work ? Sell it to me. Lol
I want a new car and I'm not realy digging this part of car

Change roll and dive/squat by adding/removing spacers. Toe is changed with different blocks, width would be adjustable in the same way.

Sell it? Well, its a tougher design... Suppose to change the way the arms/bulkheads/chassis flexes?

I like it... The roll adjustment is probably easier with the new design. Toe and width well... Probably easier just a few additional spares needed. Realistically, if your on a budget, you wont need all the different blocks. Probably 2deg, 2.5 and 3.0... But that depends on motor class and how you set the car up.

I cant wait to get my hands on one....
