I need to know what Spur I should use for 13.5 and 17.5 so I can make sure the spur/pinion combos fit for appropriate gearing.Any suggestions? I was think a 100 would be safe.

I don't know if you'll get enough gear into a 100 for a 17.5, unless you pick a high RPM motor.
Some guys run 96's, which again will work fine unless you need to gear way up.
With a 93 spur, the smallest pinion you can fit is a 41 tooth pinion for 4.91FDR (maybe even a 40 for 5.04) and you can gear up from there without running out of room if you have a torquey 17.5 on a large track.

(This is with the standard motor mount.)

No its for rcgt. 17.5 is the spec motor. I will be running 13.5 mainly.Should be an interesting season.

Sweet.......I hope that class takes off. Ling told me about it. I'm going to just stick with 13.5 though. The Tamiya gang will be out there sometime soon.

I am running 88/48 with a DUO 17.5 with an SPX on setting 6.

Seems like 88 is the perfect size Spur for 17.5...

Yeah,I may just build my Pro4 up to be the RCGT car and leave the Cyclone alone.

Robinson Racing. You can only use 2 screws to hold the spur though.

Anyone have experience with run a rear spool, front diff and a center one-way? I mainly use my cyclone for drifting, and I used to have this set up on my Yokomo SD, the center one-way gives the car the "e-brake" effect to initiate or prolong drifts and keeping the front diff helps with on power turning. Just wondering if it works with the cyclone (I figure it will), since my spool will be here soon and haven't tried it yet.

This will work for drifting,not for Onroad racing.I had the same setup on my ta05,and I imagine it would work equally as well if not a little better with the cyclone.

Still have it.It was Jimmy J's car from TCS Nats a couple years back. Maybe that should be my RCGT car.
