neas,
You are the first I've heard to have problems with the 20t pulley. Everybody I know, myself included, thinks the 17t dosen't give the car enough speed to keep up on the straights. Even at the Snowbird. What's the size of your track? May it's a gearing problem. Just a thought.

I haven't found any difference between them and I don't see, why there should be any. Of course the gearing changes and that has to be taken into account.

Spur gear adapter.....I have one of the old ones that has only 2 holes and it fit fine. A guy at the track had a newer one with 4 holes in it and it hit the belt and the top deck. I think the screws he was using were too long and they hit the belt but it did rub a little on the tob deck too. Im sure if you grind it away a little it will be fine.

hey guys, other than the 400grit paper under running water trick, what is the preferred method for beveling the battery slots on the MIssion PRO chassis?

IKE....you dont want to take too much off the slots the cells will hang below the chassis, they fit nicely out of the package. I use an emery board to take the edge off and seal it with thin CA.

2 other things, 20t pulley is the consesus for MOD on most carpet tracks correct? and does anyone have Ron Atomic's new setup for the CS27's? I am going to Carpet nats and he is supposed to have the setup that is 1/10th faster per lap with the CS27's over his normal 24/20 setup.
IKE
P.S. One other what gearing should I start with for a 10x3? 64pitch and 48pitch if it isnt too much trouble.

I've tried both 17 and 20 pulley. With the 20t the car felt flat and had poor accelleration (stock motor). With the 17t the car had much more punch off the corner, and that is with the same overall ratio takin account of. With a mod motor that may be differant, but with stock this is the way I feel the car works best.

Nevermind on the Ron Atomic thing I called him and asked him about it. Anywho, here is a list of my "USEFUL" hop-ups. Tell me if you think anything is missing from my list.

Front One-Way
Carpet Upper Deck
Lunsford stuff
Threaded shocks
Alloy Cartridges
Alloy pullies
Alloy LayShaft mounts.

Anything I missed?

Kevin
What is the part number for the thin yok inserts that you are using? The only thin ones I have been able to find are ZR-039F thin firm. Did you find some in medium or is this what you use? We finally should be at Trackside Sunday, so hope to see you there.

Ottoman.....thoes are the ones I used and like alot when the grip was normal to high. I took some echo med's and Take Off med's inserts and ground the center down some and cut about 1/4 of inch out of them and glued them back together. They work really good early in the day but they get to be too much later in the day. I wont be able to make it up to trackside this wekend or next......next weekend is St. Patty's day and well you cant be Irish and live in the city and not do something envolving drinking. I will be up there in 2 weekends. I will look for you guys then. Good luck this weekend.

Wilson10...I checked your post from a few pages back about the Mcmaster screws...did you see if they have any allen head drive screws? would prefer those to the philips...

Adrian or Paul..any info on the screw set for the mission? I got one of the pre-production versions, and the screw heads are too large to use in the bottom plate without additional counter sinking...

Thanks for any info...

mark,
do you have a store anywhere near you that sells screws? We have them here in the NW. The store is called Tacoma Screw. Anyways, this is the screw list that you need.

10 M3x12
50 M3x10
10M3x8
counter-suck hex head machine screws.

FYI, If you are using alloy diff housings and layshaft mounts use M3x8 screws. The only place you need M3x10's is to hold the the upper a-arm mounts to the top of the diff housing.

We have had problems getting screws from our screw kit supplier that are thin enough not to stick out below the chassis. In the meantime we are selling individual packages of TakeOff black steel screws. The fit perfectly. I recommend getting:

5 packs of M3x8 (50 screws)
2 packs of M3x10 (20 screws)
1 pack of M3x12 (10 screws)

This way if you get any alloy parts you are all set.

Is there any place that sells the Take-off titanium screws? Preferably in Europe. Seems really hard to find one.
