Just about all the fast guys in my local area are now running or have been running 6 degree caster blocks on their cars. AE, Xray, and Schumacher. I found the part number for them (HP73519) but it doesn't register on the HB website. I have one pair coming to me for testing this weekend (thanks Korey) but where can we get more should I like them?

No. It's actually the biggest track in my area. Speedworld raceway. Even on the small tracks guys are running the 6 degree blocks and doing well.

I'm actually 4.6, just checked. I'm on the older 16T pulley, with a 69 spur and 36 pinion. It is a little soft into and through the corners, but pulls hard coming out which is how I like it

So if you're running a Cyclone how are you running 3 degrees of caster?

Clint - try that same part number with HPI in front you might have better luck

actually amainhobbies have them in - http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...b-Set-6-Degree

that's one of those 'pro4' part numbers used on the cyclone

The spur was binding on the chassis when I installed a 84T 48P spur gear.

I spoke to a bug that the club today and he mentioned a brushless motor mount. To fix the problem

Arrow PLEASE HELP

Hey, just had my first race, gearing is confusing the heck out of me. I had the 96t spur on there and no pinions would reach so I ended up with getting a 39pinion and 108 spur. I am running a cyclone TC with a Speed Passion gt2.1 pro stock esc and the SP 17.5 motor. PLEASEEE help me on gearing, i dont have the top end i want. Thanks guys and if any one has an asphalt setup please let me know, i was drifting on the track. I very much look forward to your help cuz i want this thing dialed. Thanks in Advanced!!!!!!!
