Hi guys! Im sure this is in here somewhere but I cant find the answer. I just purchased the LRP 13.5 motor with the Sphere TC. Im running the Cyclone with the 16t pulleys and a 104 tooth spur. What size pinion am I looking at to get a good ratio? Will I need the brushless motor mount? Thanks for your help!!

Try a 91 tooth spur gear and pinions in the 50's should do good depending on your motor.

We run 96 spur with either a 51 or 52 pinion out at Speedworld. It really depends on your track layout.

Hey thanks for the help! We are running a fairly large track in a parking lot. When I ran brushed I was running 36/104 and it was coming off at about 190 deg with a Stockstar using MuchMore 36 tires.

Default rear toe in

Guys... can anybody confirm that uneven rear toe is caused by the rear hubs? I replace the rear hubs with my pro4 spare rear hubs and I supposed they are not molded right also... I have yet to try other brand rear hubs. Have anybody get around this problem other than buying the aluminum rear hubs or changing to tamiya 416 rear hubs and pins?

Without diving into your setup much at this moment change your body out to a DNA2 or Mazdaspeed6 that may actually help your situation alot. When you say drifting is all four tires sliding out or is the rear end washing out?

I ran the RX8 and its a very stable body - almost on par with a mazda6, believe it or not...

It sounds like you are missing your breaking points, ok not breaking point per say, just a point to let off the throttle - I'd try breaking sooner and not drive so hard into the corners...any reason why you are running 28r? is that what most guys at your track are running? I thought 28's were more of a colder weather tire (I could be wrong - its been a while since I ran sorex)??? I thought 32's were more of "hotter" weather tire?

Im running 28 because most people at local track use them and just to say that i dont know what does on throtle or off throtle means so i wont really understand . I think my car suffers from understeer.
