Cant think of a good search term and browsing every page is taking a looong time!

If anyone is running approx. 7 FDR please let me know your spur and pinion combo. thanks.
Try the gear sheet in the manual

I ran 96x48 at the Reedy race with a sonic 13.5...That might be a little tall for that duo motor though...

Just want to say thanks for the setup tips guys. Switched to 0B and softer springs in the back (AE Grn) and did much better. Realized that when saucing tires you really need to give it more than 5-10 minutes to set in. After tires got warm car handled great. Well - at least until I got hacked so hard the screw holding the steering bellcrank came loose. With blue loctite to boot. I thought only the off-road guys hacked...

We are also using 3m spacers as well.

To make easy access to the shocks and never have to wait for thread locker to cure, we use nylon screws. Torque them down lightly and they never come loose.

This thread needs some TC6.1 action shots

This is from our state based Club Challenge Cup series last weekend.
I qualified 3rd in Blinky for the A Main, but got overtaken by the 2 quicker cars behind me and finished 5th for the day and 4th overall for the series for the year.
