Is it necessary to run the brushless motor mount with the 18t pulleys? Does anyone run them together? It seems like the brushless motor mounts have become scarce.

All the BL motor mounts are for is for huge spurs..... So no, you dont need one for the other. If your running mod, then run the BL motors mounts and stock pulleys, stock, 19t run the stock motor mounts with the 18T pulleys

All I can say is WOW. This car was so dialed yesterday that I TQ'ed and won 10.5 at Norcal. The cheap fix for the rear toe in worked as well. Here's the break down for what to do.

Tamiya 416 rear hubs and the rear outter hinge pins is all you need and a reamer. The hot bodies rear outter hinge pins are 2.5mm and you need to ream the outter part of the arm to 2.6mm to fit the Tamiya hinge pins. Once you do this your toe in worries are over. (Insert clapping and rejoice) Now here's the catch... but it's a good one if you ask me. The Tamiya rear hub is shorter in height than the hotbodies so you will have to use shims in order to get it back to regular height. I added 3mm of shims. The last catch is that the holes on the Tamiya hub are inbetween the what we use for hotbodies. On the Hotbodies we always use the inner hole on the hub. The Tamiya hub has their hole inside the hotbodies inner hole and the Tamiya outter hole is inbetween the Hotbodies inner and outter hole (did I lose anyone in the explaination) So what I ran was the Tamiya ouuter hole (middle of the Hotbodies holes) The car was even better than it was for the Reedy race. I also made some spring changes and moved the rear shocks out a couple of holes.

This set up was dialed and Norcal yesterday. It's definately one of the better set up's I have run on the car. Scotty would be proud of me If you were at Norcal yesterday you saw the Black Hara in action I also palyed around with bodies yesterday and really liked the all purpose stratus.....remember that body? The speedworld cup is gonna be fun. The complete set up I ran will be posted today for sure. I only have one thing to do with my kids and other than watching the playoff game I have no other plans as of right now.

I don't know. I only had one crash and it didn't really upset the car. The stock HPI hubs didn't really break easy. The two times I replaced hubs were due to the ball studs breaking inside them. The hubs were fine.

18 tooth pulleys give you a taller final drive, you don't really need them.

Has anyone tried a cyclone carpet conversion? are they even available?

i have a moorespeed with a HB 3.6mm chassis, the low mount foam tyre shock tower, the 2.5mm top deck, the solid middle deck, a front ball diff and some other cool parts. Its awsome on carpet!
