Agree most cars running 17.5 will have this.

Keep in mind once this set correctly you won't changed in often....a wrench with a ball end is your friend.

So that's solved, what about the pinion hitting the top deck situation?

EDIT: Just did some sanding and everything fits now, just wasn't sure if this is correct protocol in onroad or not.

Teach, our track tires are Solaris Hard or Jaco Blues. I was running Solaris Hard tires.

I'm sure I'll be down to MRH at some point. Not sure when. The guys really want me to go this coming weekend, but I plan to go to a Nitro Offroad race that Saturday.

Very soon though.

Well I guess you guys didn't get rain. It was raining in the morning when I left the house so ended up going to MRH.

Car was pretty good but I would like it a little more locked down in the rear of the car. I also put an Xray hard bumper on after I broke a front steering knuckle but after that was good all day long.

For me I have to say I have never had a touring car steer so hard out of the box with a spool. I really like my car mellow in the front end on carpet so I have some more work to do but overall after a 5 year layoff didn't do bad.

3rd round was on a A main run but had some trouble. Overall I just need more time to get use to carpet and how it changes as the traction comes up. Need to take out the drag brake as I think that makes me too loose off power in the some of the corners if I leave off too much. I don't have a ton in but I will try less next time I run carpet. Lots of stuff to try over the upcoming weeks so I can see if I can be more competitive on the rug.

I'm running 17.5 blinky on carpet as well. I'm still working on a comfortable setup but it will take me a few more weeks til I get all my springs I have on order and just overall get more comfortable driving a touring car again.

The stock setup does steer on carpet for sure. They have the front arms spaced back 3mm out of the 4mm it can move total. The rear arms are 3mm back so the combination of short front arm setup and longer rear arm setu does give the car some steering.

Problem with the box stock arm spacing is that the car seems to dump over to hard in the front.

That is still not going to solve it
I tried that & you have to sand it down a bit Im running an xray gear 96 with a trinity 50 pinion & after trying that it rubbed sanded it down a tad & no problem

They are supposed to be more durable and last longer. Especially in mod. I just finished my own car and will be testing tomorrow with the stock belts and then change them to the other belts (the type r's) to test. But i may just wait to see how long the stock belts last.
