Sorry, I updated the sheet so the same link should work, if not its just the #2 hole front and rear.

1 Last question Why the Tamiya/Smokem parts up front?

The used (never run) car I purchased had them on there already. I actually love them though. No blades to bust and the tamiya dcj's are extremely smooth and strong. As soon as smokem makes outdrives for the xray diff I'm converting my other car over to these as well!

RJ you have a PM on RCFiles. Would have loved to have raced last weekend. Hopefully the surgeon will take the stiches out of Ronda's foot so she isn't restricted to bed rest and I can go racing Saturday here in SA. It seems like forever since I last got to race. Have a new VTA car I'm building and will try out. I'll be sure to mount the senor wire as far away from your car as possible

Personally I like the Box stock TC6.1 setup for VTA and just make adjustments from there.
Thanks for the hand Russ. Doesn't look that far off from stock.

What do you guys use to clean VTA tires? Asphalt track prepped with maple syrup smelled like breakfast all day but left black grime/grit/yuk on the tires. I used undiluted Simple Green and it did a good job but took two applications and lots of elbow grease.

Tried brake cleaner and it worked beautifully but perhaps that is over doing it?

A local here uses "MEK Substitute" from Home Depot, but this was for carpet.

I like Trinity Buggy Grip. Cleans and leaves a slightly tacky feel to the rubber. On some asphalt tracks where most tires sauces are hit-or-miss, Buggy Grip may be all I use at all.

I use this brake cleaner. Works amazing and doesn't leave any residue or attack the bodies/plastics. I've also not noticed any extra wear on tires using this either. I think its an Advance Auto Parts house brand so you can only get it from there.

HI All,

I am running VTA with a Xray T3 2012 and am wondering what size spur gear most people use?

Using a Reedy Sonic Mach 2, 21.5

thanks
