Default I'm sorry about the terms I use still learning touring cars

Sorry about the term still learning touring cars but stiffer springs up front and the softest in the rear, I was using the 3racing 6.0 which are their softest in the spring kit they have and 5.5 in front but went to 4.75 in front. Changing spring rates is the fastest way to see what your car is doing on the track, that or moving the placement of your shock position. I raced recently on carpet and had my rear shock position 2 holes from the bottom and she started to really feel planted then also moved the fronts almost straight up and it got way better but I will say this that I had sway bars on and they were set at a medium position and stiff up front and soft in the rear.
Believe it or not, I ran asphalt last weekend and it worked on our track and felt better than every thing else I've tried. I'm really new to touring and it's waaay different than 1/12 scale pan and 1/8 nitro so touring really has me going in a mad scientist kinda way to find the right comb to work.
Hope this helps in any way.

I just purchased one of these cars, its actually a Turnigy (same car). I will be running a 17.5 motor and I am looking for a good place to start for a pinion gear. I will be using the stock 80 tooth spur and its 48 pitch.

I just built the XI sport which purportedly has the same internal ratio, though I've seen it quoted as 1.9 and 2.0. I was shooting for a 4.0 FDR, which I achieved through using 71T and 35T gears. I was told I wouldn't be able to fit a 80/40 combo. I would grab a lower geared Spur.

Apparently these are discontinued. I have heard Xray parts will fit. Does anyone know which ones will fit?

Anyone know where to get the kit tires? They should be cheap and are decent on pavement for practice.

I purchased the 3 racing front one way to try on my xiS and installed, but the out drive cups appear too short and they move in and out of the one way bearings about 1/2 an inch. This can't be normal. Do I need longer cvds?
