You could also partially drill a larger hole in the A Arm, that will free up the droop screw, but be warned an oops here could cost u , but keep in mind it will loosen up over time

I always use a small bit of AE diff lube on the screws. No problems then.

You can also pre-tap with a good steel screw, apply silicon or chapstick to droop screw before installing.

Wanted to run 48/90 on my TC6 but they are out of 90's

Can I use a 88 with say 47 pinion? Does anyone use that small a spur in TC 17.5 blinky?

What is the spur used in binky at the snowbirds or usually 64 pitch?

Preemptive thanks

96 is the spur of choice for 17.5 blinky. 96/51 is a 3.76, which is the same as your 90/48

I run 100 with 48-50 running a Revtech, since I never go taller than a 4.0 with our track size. XRAYs 96 works like a charm!

I am on small carpet track soon to be on large asphalt track

Right now I am at 48/100 with revtech motor with timing fully towards +

The motor barely gets warm and I could use some top end so I'm gonna try 51/96 next time to work the motor more

Thanks

Running at Norcal right? I've tried a few ratios on the asphalt track and have found 4.09 works for me. I use a Team Powers motor with the timing on 3 (about 3/4 way +)....... every motor is different, though.

Yes Norcal, I think with my 48/100 it is about 4.00 and the motor barely gets warm and it could be faster on straight

I mean with the gearing I had it wasn't terrible slow but I think I was just under the average speed. I'm guessing outdoor I'll have to gear up some also

Thanks

My math puts you at 4.17. Try coming up a tooth on the pinion (4.08). That will probably make a big difference.

90/45 is what Bob and I ran at the birds. The smaller pinion allowed the car to "spool up" faster.

Some motors come out of the turn really hard, so running the largest spur/pinion combo can make it feel a tad smoother. I usually just run Associated's 100 for club racing cuz it's cheap and wide..... not unlike some women I've known.......
