Default Small pinion gears

Anybody ever slot the motor mount plate back a little further to be able to run a spur smaller than an 85 (64 pitch)? I have several 80 tooth spur gears that I would like to use up but slot prevents motor from moving back far enough. A 5-6mm extension of the slot would do it. I have access to a mill that will not cost me anything to do. Looks like plenty of meat on the plate to mill out some more?!

Well that me I have now officially jumped ship, been a good year with the photon ex but really fancied a change. a few points to mention if your still running kit bearing make sure you change them as over the last few weeks had 4 go on me 1 bad one in front spool which melted the spool belt tensioner. the rest were drive shaft inner bearings.

I almost bought a tcxx this last week... But support from top aus is 2 good.
Really needing some more track time with thecar.

What specifically did you not like about the ex? what did you replace it with? Hopefully not xray...

Default V2 front steering blocks

We are having trouble with the arm breaking on the new V2 steering blocks TC-MACS01. They all broke in the area where the arm connects to the bearing carrier. Anyone else seeing issues?

Not that I didn't like it had it setup great for my liking indoors on carpet, still had a leaking gear diff and the bearings thing, kit bearings must be very poor as only lasted 6 months racing every 2 weeks, Didn't have any issues with breaking anything, only the v1 rear blocks would get hairline cracks causing the bearings to feel loose (wheel play) had to swap a few kit screws because of poor quality.

I have just got the Schumacher Mi5, only because I love the look of it being so different and innovative. Not selling the photon yet in case the mi5 doesn't like carpet.

Yes, the screws are a little soft. That was a problem with the first car too. I personally haven't had an issue with bearings unless I hit something. The photon is great on carpet and asphalt. Steve and ej hopefully will post their set ups soon. As for the gear diff I soaked the orings in wd40 for a night and they haven't leaked a drip.

Check with OD at Top USA. I made a bunch of aluminum steering blocks for a couple of times now. Made from the highest grade 7075 forged aluminum. You shouldn't have any trouble with them.
