Slightly off topic...nice Vette in your avatar C5R01. Ironically enough, I was out on a Sunday drive this morning and snapped off a pic of my 1:1 scale C6. I know this is a FWD thread so please make an exception

This is one of my real racecar paintjobs (designed by me for the dealer I work for). I also own a 94 Z51 6speed coupe.

Thanks. A simple paint and decals can make a ordinary carlook like great car.

I read in the earlier pages of this thread that due to gear case constraint, there is a limit for how tall a gear you can use i.e. pinion rubbing gear case. So for those of you with the spec-r gear diff. + matching case. Does spec-r address this problem by having a different internal ratio rather than just transferring the originals over?

They only released the diff itself and no counter gears so the internal ratio will be the same as stock. I think by case you mean the gear cover?

Just leave the pinion/spur cover off and you will have no issue with fitting large pinions. Most high end on-road cars do not have covers over pinions/spurs and if you need to achieve a large rollout then you will need to leave the cover off.

Does anyone run one of the Tamiya racing wings on the Integra or is the standard one used?
Anyone?

if your pinion is really big its a bit difficult to get the meshing correct. can be done but pinion will be slightly offset to spur gear

Same problem here. The Spec-R gearcase comes with adapters to fit either the original ball diff or the gear diff. Too many philips screws to undo to make my car TCS legal again so I won't be running in our events for awhile hehehe. Had my fill of rebuilding the diff so many times during TITC I'm pretty much sick of it right now hahahaha



You're lucky that your diff stayed ok. Mine was very notchy after every 2 runs. I even put new diff plates on the 2nd day and still became notchy. I've pretty much given up on the Tamiya diff and will join our TCS events again once Tamiya comes out with a geardiff. All in all, I spent more time fixing my FF than my touring car!!!

Also seeing that my times were a second off the A-main guys was very disappointing, am challenged to run FF again next year since I know I could have done so much better, but it just took away so much time from my main focus

Didn't get to meet you though, what main did you run in? I was in main D
Hai Guys...

With the spec-r gear diff... are you using a different oil thickness for 27t motor to 13t motor? or you just using the same oil thickness....
@mikeygray... is 100k mean 100,000 cts or wt? sorry to ask you this question seen i'm new to this diff oil...

thanks guys

I am currently using an EVO X (came with the PRO I bought) and have the Tamiya racing wing on it (least downforce of the two wings) which I ran a couple of weeks ago and it seemed to handle well. You can argue that it is not an FWD car but the 2.0L Lancer is FWD as far as I know......
It's not on the list of bodies that do not fit this chassis so I see no reason why it cannot be used, but if the others are better I may consider a new body. Also don't like the colour scheme of this EVO X anyway!
At TCS speeds I don't think it makes any difference. TCS in Omaha I'm not sure if any racing wings were used at all. Here's the order of finish if I remember correctly...

1. Celica - no wing
2. Accord - stock wing
3. Integra - can't remember what wing he ran
4. Civic VTI
5. Civic VTI
Not sure the order of the rest but no other cars really challenged the top 5.

I've seen others locally try the Golf and 406. The guy running the 406 has tried the racing wing and liked it but setup is most important. Getting the car not to roll over the front tire in the corners and getting it to pull off the corners have been the biggest challenge for me. That's on carpet.
