Makes sense, I know from shipping international that they pay a pretty high customs fee. I think I can live with 350.00. Going to check with my LHS as they said they would have them in stock in the next week or so.

Does everyone generally still use CA glue to smooth out all the graphite parts?

Happy that the build went well. No issues with parts, fit or assembly. All systems are go.

Looking forward to following this thread.
So you really were interested in mine at snowbirds! LOL

I guess it shows more of a difference at speed, which I'm not at! Certainly have to give it a try outside.
yes like king karate stated everyone running in the 9's (boosted) is using a
P37 R at debbs except for one guy using the Mazda 6

Personally I have been going with the P37R lately on my TC6. I feel like the car handles better through the tight stuff I can stay tighter and more consistent Im running the kit setup with a couple tiny changes But WHO Knows everyone's different Just a thought of mine

Default X-Ray Spur Gears

Hello,

I've seen posts saying that X-Ray spur gears will fit on the TC6. Are these the off set spur gears or does X-Ray make a non offset?

What is the biggest size 64 pitch that will fit? I've seen in the thread someone was using 114. Is that the biggest one that will fit?

Thanks.

what FDR are you looking for? a 128 will fit if u use a small enough pinion but that probably wont give you what you are looking for, unless your looking for a FDR over 10.

I'm looking for about 6.5 - 6.8 FDR. I was more curious more than anything.

Thanks

114 64p is basically 87 48p if that helps.

if you are using the ion 3 or duo3 the shaft is long and doesnt have the cut in the shaft far enough in on the motor so the offset spur helps get the pinion in the right spot.

Same thing with the BOSS/SpeedPassion motors.
