Ah, that makes sense. I had trouble with mine but it was from side to side.

Curious. How will the brushless mm solve the problem?

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!!!!!!!
What software are you running in the speedo? What was the motor temp?

Go to "Petit RC", translate and pull setups for the Cyclone. Good info there.

Also search this thread. PM me your email and I can send you a good setup from a friend of mine. Works good on med. bite asphalt.

I'm still working on one for the Exotek chassis, but the Hara's 2008 reedy setup is usually a good place to start.

Rob, apparently it raises the center line if the spur allowing the installation of the larger spur gears

I have not had any issues with the pins coming out, but they do WEAR pretty fast. I think they will be coming out with replacement parts soon. I keep checking the site every now and then to see if they are in stock.

just wanted to note that I was already looking forward to the European touring series (ETS) race in heemstede (a very large/fast track in the netherlands) in three weeks but my excitement just increased as i saw the one and only Atsushi Hara and Andy Moore are registered to race there.
from the other teams it will be reinhard, groskamp(the dutch hope) and graversen so we should make for a great A-final modified.

in stock we will all be racing speedpassion motors and esc.
though i wish we could see the real speed difference between mod and 13.5 with the new escs I hope it will give the results the organisers are looking for with close racing.
