Its geared at 25/48 now.. But on the 30t pinion.. idk? Its hard to say.. with the 25/48 i dont think i could get much more than a 26 on there.. But if i put that 40 on that raman found im sure id have more room! VE battery tray
Oh ok nice!. I think you can run the kyosho 46T and then the 26 should go on fine. They have a lightened 46T metal gear.

The wide vorza btw handles amazing, no chance of flipping anywhere even on the 6s, since I race now though on the track I took the wide kit off, but if you want it let me know =)

Which center diff are you using ?.

Does that VE battery tray directly or did you have to mod it to work ?.

Also what radio/servo tray is that ?.

That takes talent LOL. What did he do, drop the car from a 100 story building and having it land on a 2 x 4 lol.

I just got back from a test run on my TRF801 GTe. Decided to run it with a 6S LiPo instead of the 5S LiFe. What a difference.... gearing 48/20. Tyres PMT Rally 06.

I have to admit, thus far they are hands down the best handling GT tyres I have used. Once the warm up, they are glued to the tarmac. At was doing slalom at full throttle and could not get the rear end to break lose.. I even drew a crowd lol. In a way it kind of suck because I do like to be able to steer with the rear at the track..

All in all, everything went well... until on one pass the front lifted and the car did a back flip LOL. No real damage... shock cap popped off and dumped the oil and I lost the shock bladder.

I had noticed the front to rear weight transition on acceleration was significant. I ended up increasing front droop.. which in hindsight was a mistake. It reduced the weight transfer but does not increase front traction.

I bought mine from FG supply, a while ago. I run 20 shore up front and 10 at the rear. At the moment they only have 10 shore in stock.

http://www.fgsupply.com/Tires_wheels...ally_Game.html

Kamikaze toys also carries them but they look like their out of stock as well.

PMT is Italian and they're closed for entire month of August for holidays. If you contact FG Supply and ask for Angel, he will let you know when they will be back in stock.

I don't why it wouldn't, it hold up in off-road.

Did you use a steel pinion gear? If you use aluminum, it will hold up longer
