Our cars have been great since December. We all like different things... I always go for a easier, more idiot proof setup at the cost of 0.1s. We where separated by 1/2mm at the pins and track width. Otherwise identical.

I've never run 9 mains with three cars in 36 heats... That was a challenge!

It puts steering at the proper angle/ alignment. It should drive better. Top USA also has another order of the tamale front hubs in stock. They are super strong!!!!!! Have yet to hear of one bending!!!

I have a couple questions on the EX spur gear if someone can help.
1. Do any of you prefer running the thick or thin spur gears in 64 pitch?
2. Is anyone having issues with the alloy spur adapter/pully being hard on belts?
Thanks in advance!

I normally run the Kimbrough/Associated spurgears, but the are black :-)
I'm not running the alloy adapter, the plastic one is really really cheap.

I alsorun the Kimbrough. Cheap and easy to find. I have never had an issue with the plastic pully, but I remember reading something from a UK TOP driver that he runs the alluminum ones on asphalt, because little rocks wont strip it. I would assume in general that the aluminum one would be harder on belts. Just my .002, but they look cool, and thats all that matters

With the alloy spur adaptor, the adaptor pulleys wear... And eventually belts skip. I was pumped when I got mine... its also heavier

Default Reedy Race

Anyone planning to attend the Reedy Race in May I've got a good starting setup for you.

I was fortunate to TQ and win last weekend.

Here is a video of the main (race starts at about 2:30 into the video):

Hey other then the stock battery mounts, are there any other battery mounts that will fit on the ex? I ask because I changed chassis and forgot to take them off. I then sold the chassis online and that's when realized I forgot to take them off! I am trying to avoid spending $35 for a new set.

Get a T.O.P. gear diff they work great. Build them right and they dont leak. You can get them from directly from TOP.. If for some reason they are out of stock send me a PM I have an extra one I could sell ya.
