I'm sure this has been answered a million times already, but I don't feel like searching through thousands of previous posts...

What is the largest 64 pitch spurgear that will fit the TC3 without having to chop up the chassis or poking through the bottom?

Foam tire set ups....

Where on the internet do people post setups for foam tires other than associateds web site. I really would like to use other resources.

Psycho.

I run a 90 to 94 on my son's TC3 for modified.

Those sort of sizes allow for quite a variation of pinions.

Regards,

Joe from sunny Malta.

Why would anyone run a 64 instead of the stock 48 ?

64 pitch would allow for smaller increment changes in the final drive. In 48 pitch pinion changes can be very large. 7 7.2 7.5 are 48 pitch changes where you would be able to go in between these with 64. Smaller teeth equals smaller more precise gearing. 64 pitch is not good for newbies, you can strip the gears more easily.

Thanks guys. I was mainly interested in what the largest size that will physically fit into the chassis so I'm not guessing. I am running mod. I run on prepared asphalt and carpet, so I'm not worried about stripping gears out. I was looking for the fine gear ratio increment change that rangulo is talking about. 32 pitch? Man! I thought the car was noisy with 48 pitch!

Psycho, I am certain that a 104 tooth spur will fit(I use them on my mod class TC3), it looks to me like a 108 MIGHT fit(but I haven't tried it yet, so I'm not sure), but I'm sure it would slightly limit how big a pinion you could run with it.....

Wow. Been awhile since I've been on here!!!!!

I've also run a 104 on my car. 108 might prove interested in cornering....just run the car a little low and it'll turn ON the 108 spur sticking out the bottom!!!!

Thanks again, guys. I'll head to my lhs and pick up a 104T. It will be nice to have a few more gearing choices.

Another question... I bought a rear shock tower for the front, but I find that it doesn't fit the shocks very well. If I change the position on the shock tower, it adds compression on the springs. I'm running Mugen threaded body shocks, but I measured them when I built them and made sure they were the same length as the Associated shocks. Any good fix for this? I was thinking about making the ball connector thingies (the part that screws onto the shock shaft) shorter, but I suspect it will be a pita to get them all the same length. What are you guys doing? I assume you are running the rear shock tower up front, since the car handles much better that way. (imo)
