Can I run a normal 64p pinion with the stock spur?

Yes, it will work. Just a little noisier.

64dp is the equivalent of 0.395 module, so close enough to get them to mesh together but they will be noisy and the spur gear won't last long.

What did u guys use to loosen up the balls in the front upper arms?

Mine are not as loose as needed?

Also, I will be running on a medium sized medium grip carpet track. I plan to run the stock spring and #350 shock oil in the shock, what should I use in the dampener?

What I do is this. I use a very sharp hobby knife and run it inside of the holes to cut excess plastic flashing off. Then use some fine grit sandpaper "600". Roll it tight enough to get into the holes. Use alcohol or some kind of cleaning liquid. If you want. You could go even further and use a dab of Tamiya anti wear grease, red or black Team Associated grease in the holes.

Looking for tips to mount a low profile servo. How do you affix the servo to the chassis?

Ok got the car together, pretty tough wiring it up with my large orca esc and capacitor. Will be switching to a hobbywing for a smaller footprint.

Question on sensor wires, are you guys running them, seems to make it even tighter in back with the sensor wires and i do not want ti disrupt the pod.

Ball end reamer in the upper arms....available from any number of manufacturers

TQ Wire makes super flexible sensor wires in various lengths. CRC has them as well.

Thx for the help, the car is together minus the side pods and induction vent which I will add tomorrow.

Build was pretty easy but the body is tedious. The wiring is tricky, had to use a RX from another car but the RX for this car will not have a wire

Ran the car tonight, it was a blast

Right now the car is pushing off power. I am using the stock kit spring (gold) and 350 wt oil in both dampers. What can i do to get more off power steering and not have it push. Im running about 1.5 toe out, 1" camber and about a 4.5 ride height

Im running Pit tires with sauce and I feel pretty confident its not the issue.

You can also try thicker lube. 5K, 10K.

Also you can put more camber in it try 1.5 or 2.0 this will help turning in off power

I swapped out the side dampener which was a shock with 350wt oil for the tamiya he'd dampener and used 30,000 grease. Gonna give that a try and may also reduce the spacer under the other dampener. Wondering if adding a stiffer spring would help much since I'm one away from the hardest tamiya?

Adding camber sounds good also
