Yes it will. The xray offset spurs fit perfect.

Hey Chrisg23, I'm guessing your running the 21.5 at trains and lanes. If you look at something like 104t spur and 47 pinion puts you much closer to that 4.20 ratio

What are you having trouble with as far as the 64 pitch conversion?

No, I understand the math, it the mesh that is usually more difficult on the 64 pitch gears.

After getting out my pocket protecter and doing some math, your advice is dead on. 104s/47p x 1.9 = a 4.204 FDR. Thanks for the info.

I was wondering the same thing. I noticed that the kit setup sheet calls for 10k in the rear differential. I am using either 1 or 2k currently on a high bite asphalt track and the car feels awesome.

Not really. I just changed the roll centers, oils (Losi 40/35), rear diff and am not running raked as far as ride height.

I've only driven the car for ten minutes (Racing), so I didn't want to get too crazy with setup changes.

As it is, the car is very fast... I tied fast lap of the day (To the thousandth, 14.465)
