Yes HPI spring are little better, especialy during high/medium speed corner, when the car turn it tazke less rolling.

But be carrefull, there is 2 silver spring, same ref : the chrome one, and the black one.

The chrome one is totally round while the black one has a flat contact surface.
A guy on my club has both and he can feel a difference between the black and the chrome ones but dont really know wich one is the best.

I have the black ones.

Hello everyone,

just a little question about the final ratio on a TRF:

I drive with a SP 10.5R motor and a SP GT2.1 Prostock esc on big track, and people in my club told me I had to have a final ratio of 5.7.

So I look in my gears for this ratio, but I do not have 38 teeth pinion motor.

And as I have the Tamiya original 0.4 module spur gear, I do not know if I can wear this with 64DP gear motor, as RW, for example.

So, can I put 64DP gears with module 0.4 spur gear? Or do I have to find a motor pinion 38 teeth in Tamiya 0.4 module to be compatible?

Thanks for your answers and see you soon,
G-rem

PS: nice to meet you here Kedal ;-)

Default Xenon VSS spur not spinning true when attached to the center shaft/pulley holder

I have tried qty 4 Xenon VSS spur gears 100T, when attached to the center holder and installed in the car, the spur wobbles like crazy and interferes with top deck.

when re-installing the stock 111T Tamiya spur, there's no wobbling whatsoever...???

Has anyone experienced this? If so, any fix would be appreciated.

Thanks!!

No problem
Yes, you are correct, placing the weight more forward will make the car easier to drive, but it will also have less steering. Therefore, having the weight further forward may not always be faster... I think this is the reason we use the layout we do. Also it is easier to make the electrics layout look neater lol

guys, i hate to barge in, but i have an urgent question regarding the supension pivot blocks. can any of you tell me which block would measure ~ 47.5mm from pin to pin (on center)? i'm assuming it's going to be a rear/rear toe block of some sort.

(fwiw - i was shorted a block on an order for the sakura car, and getting one of these is seemingly a month long project).

It is ok, there is a difference in the thickness of the spurs.
You should have a thin spacer when you use the Tamiya spur, you'll need to purchase another one -to take up the difference in thickness.
So - 2 spacers and your Zenon spur, and you'll be fine, as long as you place the spacers on each side of the spur.
Hope this helps.
