Thanks for the info I think I'll try rcmart first,
I think I'm trying to unsetup a drift car , the guy I bought it off had the solid drive on the rear and the diff in the front, I wondered why it was hard to corner with till I discovered that 😅

Download the manual, take it all apart and rebuild it according to the manual. You may find a few surprises

What size spur and pinion would be the best place to start running 13.5?
64pitch
Thank you

Common is a 96T, but that means quite big pinions. 44T pinion would give 4.25 for example - good starting point.

I'd try and find under 90T - panaracer go to 88T - will mean pinions are smaller and less issues with fitting under the top deck. You're limited to around 50T in 64p

Sorry!
you are recommending to start at a 88t spur (64pitch) combined with a 44t pinion?

Aim for a FDR in the low/mid 4's to start.

96/44 is 4.25
92/42 is 4.26
88/40 is 4.28

Pitch is irrelevant for the actual calculation, but yes, those sizes - in terms of availability and fitting the car - are based on using 64p

So back to the dilemma. Just get rid of the 417 and get a second 419 for USGT or try some of the mods listed in this thread of four hundred posts.
Anyone compare a tricked-out 417 to a 419?
Which Smokem parts to make the 417 a good 21.5 USGT (good grip carpet)?

I'm thinking:
417MX chassis 81005 or 417-IIF 81009
417V7 Conversion 82011
Servo holder
or Tamiya hop-up part#42285

After posting this I looked up the Smokem and Raceberry conversions and can't find them for sale anywhere.
try the Exotek x-hard chassi conversion with smokem V7...

Hi!
So it turns out that the spur that came with my roller is a 64p 106 tooth
Would a 44-45ish pinion put too much heat on my 13.5 or should I just run it and keep an eye on the temps?

That will give you an FDR of around 4.58. For 13.5 blinky, that would be quite high for the tracks that I race on, where most people are in the high 3's/low 4's. Should be safe enough for the motor, but I reckon you need to be thinking a smaller spur.

Phil.
