Let's talk turkey, who's racing on foams these days? Anybody trying anything new? Underdrive? Antidive? Prosquat?

I was thinking of trying overdrive with a 1-way. Any thoughts?

i tried that...corner turn in is good...exit...pushes a lot...i dunno if it's just me...i replaced the pulley with the standard and it ran fine...actualy ran faster..still pushing out a little....acceleration speed is faster...but puts a lot of stress on the drivetrain....just my thoughts........now i'm going back to diffs with the overdrive...



anyways...i've never seen the spur adapter for the xxx-s but could i use a xxx buggy spur on that thing....i wanted to get one of those kevlar bat it only comes in 64 pitch for xxx-s...any thoughts?....

I dont know of anybody that makes a good spur gear adapter. Back when Trinity came out with theirs I bought one and where the gear mounted was true but where the belt rode was oblong. You would have to set the belt tension loose to accomodate the tight spots which allowed the belt to skip. The stock gears work great. I have used 64p for years on indoor and outdoor tracks with no failures. I do use the gear cover though along with some foam strips cut to outline the gear cover to keep the fine dust particles out as well. Its nice to look in the gearcover and see a nice clean yellow belt.

Mine held up to a 7 turn motor pretty well, it spins very true, no wobbles or anything.

Default Outside shock limiter

I was looking at some setup by guys like Todd Hodge and they have the .100 limiter placed on the outside of the shock between the spring cup and the cartridge. What effect would this have on the handling of the XXXS-G. Would this prevent traction rolling?

I think the outside limiter is to keep you from driving the dogbone too deep into the outdrive, but I'm not sure. All limiting uptravel does is cause the spring (and wheel) rate to shoot to infinity instantly. Not good for handling, but it can stop damage from occuring.

I think the limiter is used to keep the piston lower and "in" the oil. Eliminate the lil air bubbles.......

Da4head: notice on the setup, they are using very light springs & oil....

By using the outside limiting:

A.) it keeps the car chassis from "bottoming" out.
B.) as RBLove stated, less cavitation
