Start with a 78t 64p spur gear
rollout is dependent on track size and motor

90x45 carpet
17.5 - 103mm
13.5 - 90mm

How do I mount the Jaco wheels on the front axle of my rm01x. Do I need to change bearing size? If so what size? Or do I use the option axles?

You need the option axles for any wheels other than Tamiya

Are you going to run TCS with this, or is it just a club weapon

pics of your finished build please
The original plan was to hit some TC races (after nearly a 20 year TCS lapse) but some things have conspired against it! Not to mention it seems like all the local TCS races do not have a RM01 class.

So a club weapon it is! And what a club weapon it was!

I ran kit medium front springs, kit side springs (gold), kit center spring, 50k in the roll dampener, 30k on the kingpins and added .5mm to the front arm screws for more caster.

Yellows and blacks 7/8 front dope for 14 minutes and rear for 34 minutes.

I will put up some pics of the build later when I unload from today.

I think it got more attention than the Awesomatix when I first showed up with that!

It's been a looooong time since I ran that type of front end. I forgot how easy they are to drive.

It will be interesting to see the US street price. She could be a contender.

Start with Kit tires
If you want more front bite/steering, try Tamiya Option fronts

I like option fronts and kit rears. I've used this combo on carpet and indoor black top. Works best for me running a 13.5.
