I don't see the point in this when you can't raise the front of the car high enough to accommodate the low pro tires.

Is there a chance that either the tread plate spacer or the upright option are meant to sort this...though as far as I can see you'd need different arms?

What is the upright?

Ran mine for the first time yesterday, liked it but 17.5 blinky is a bit slow! So are these legal for general 12th racing? Not fussed about competitiveness, just whether you could enter general 12th races with them?

Also, anyone got a setup? I put the hopup dampers on during the day (just used supplied oil to start) and got more and more push!?

I was thinking of stiffening up the pitch springs to get the rear to break more, and loosening the diff...do you need to run the diff loose on these to stop push from a more solid rear axle?

What surface are you running on, & size

Of course it's legal for 12th racing

What is your rollout

The kit springs are heavy, both side & center, no reason to go up on spring rate

Diff should ALWAYS be locked, and smooth with 12th scale

If the car is pushing, try the option front tires

My question on legality was just around dimensions, I haven't been in the US long and have never run 12th!! (I'm offroad normally)

Not sure on rollout, haven't measured yet, but was on option tyres all round and std spur, tried 19 and 23 on pinion, felt like 21/22 would be best. It is a short carpet track, with generally long (double apex) fast corners leading into tight corners, so no brake use, just using the corner to scrub off speed.

I probably had my diff to loose actually then, and should lock it up more.

What's the best way of clamping the rear axle, I find it binds if there's no play, but also moves a bit during the run as it has more play after...is it best to
Clamp with a tiny amount of play and just clamp it down really really hard? Feels like it may strip the thread!

You will need a smaller spur gear, the one incl in the kit is for somewhat of a 2s application
Look back in this thread for suggestions on how to use a standard 78t 64p spur, using tape on the axle, it works awesome

95 to 100mm roll is what we run on a 90x45 track here

Clean the axle end and hub, remove all oil, and yes the screw has to be very tight, use a quality 2mm driver

There should be end play on the axle

Gearchart.com is your friend for rollout

The option rear tires may have the rear locked in too much, try kit rear, w/ option fronts

You can also adjust how you sauce the tires, what sauce are you using
Brakes are unnecessary in 17.5 blinky, the car never goes fast enough to need them, unless something is wrong on the setup, or tires

I'll be painting my Tom's this week... Little depature from the all white base...

In regards to the spur. I've heard from some F1 guys that they also have a part for this.. Just waiting to hear what they've done specifically.

I doubt that
The F1 diff, and axle are different

I haven't run Formula since the F201, so thanks for that Red... I'll make sure to smack my buddy upside the head. LOL

On another note... Does anyone have a recommendation on a 1S lipo? $60 for a one cell is hard to swallow when I'm paying $34.99 for GOOD 2S packs...
