I'm running a silver can at 4.81 FDR with 64p gears and I'm around 140f. You should be ok with a black can.

Decide to run my chassis on the local track today running on 9T Brushless accompanied with 105T (64p spur) and 29T pinion. Seems to handle well but on long straights it seems to ran out of top end speed. Am afraid i might fry my motor or esc

Do you have a way of measuring the motor temperature ( either with a thermometer gun after the race or something like Spektrum telemetry which is constant while racing )? Temp will give you a good idea about how your motor is going ...which can help with gearing

If you mean that you are slower than others on the straight I would put in a bigger pinion (reduce FDR)...this will give you higher speed but slower accelearation. They say that optimum is to be at max speed 3/4 down the longest straight. Personally I can never see when its max speed so I just use temperature and comparison to others as a good guide.

Run your car on your street in front of your house and watch where it tops out. Use a reference point to see how long it takes then apply that to your track. Sounds silly but it works.

Yeah , tried it but on track on q straight it converts to max 1 sec difference , more likely less than that ( on a lap of circa 15 sec)

I am not saying it doesnt work , just that for my little experience I find the other factors more reliable and easier to see

Hey all,

I just finished my TA05 v2 finally, with the Honda Accord shell from HPI (#7037)

I painted it as close to my real car as possible. Hope you guys like it!

Thanks, I goofed up on forgetting to mask the lower trim of the body, and painting it black like how the lower trims came on my car...

The decals took FOREVER. I only used about 25% of the decal too! I guess like all plastic modeling, decals and painting takes the most time...

Nope, not yet, I need to do that soon, I have waaaay too many unpainted shells lying around with not enough paint!

Anyone interested? I'll be posting a big-sale thread in the FS section soon, just gotta get around to take pics of everything that I want to sell...

Wow, the upgrade pack seems pretty cool. It seems like it will upgrade it to the level of the "MS" and the "-R" type of kits out there...

Probably will get it just for the shocks and wheels when I need a new set...

Ran through the same problem on my 3Racing knuckle, it broke on the same part that you mention while i was drifting on tile track. Change the broken one to plastic original ones and tried TC on asphlat when i bump the side of another car and broke the other one as well. Am running both plastic right now to play safe. $16 down the drain.. even my 3racing sterring kit has a slight play on the bearing side so i might consider removing all my 3racing parts as i dont wanna risk anything on my upcoming race which is 20 days away


Gimpex quote: It was with a 23T brushed motor so not excessively fast , asphalt with rubber , barriers are part wood part cement - dont recall which I hit , but it could have been just the right ( or wrong ) angle at that time. It also bent the metal steering turnbuckle.
