Yep, I think there are still some people who didn't get their money back.

I'm on the Xray Team here in the UK. Here's my basic set-up that works well almost everywhere I go:

HPI Pink (f) and Silver (r) springs
Shocks mounted center hole
MuchMore 450 or Associated 37.5 oil
Alum Shocks w/ 1.1mm 3 hole pistons (0 rebound)
Droop 6 f. 5 r.
Kit CVD's. I'm faster with them.
Camber 1.5 all around
1 deg toe out front
3 degree toe in rear
5.2mm ride height
Dif oil 1000 Edit brand
No shims on inner bulks (camber link) 2mm outer front and 4mm outer rear.
Front spool
Sorex 28r tyres and LRP Carpet additive.
To solve any issues with my car I adjust additive timing and might lower front shocks one hole.

For MooreSpeed tyres I run MooreSpeed Red springs and HPI silver rears.

What is the actual rating of Moorespeed Red springs?

Default Lowest FDR

Gday All,

I'm about to buy a T3 2012 and would like to run in 21.5 Blinky from time to time and need to get down to 2.9FDR and was wondering if anyone is doing the same?

I'm sorry I missed out on your business. I won't sell product I don't have in stock. I find it leads to a better overall experience.

I've been using the Nikita out drives for awhile now. The fit and finish are great and the blades last, even after a crash. If your running a spool you need to get these. A great quality product

A 72t spur with 40 pinion would give 3.42
Not sure if you can get any smaller than that.

I have seen a 48p 64tooth spur at my LHS and I have a 48p 42t pinion which would work at getting 2.9FDR, but I just don't know if they would fit and mesh.

Anyone?
