Sorry for the late reply I totally forgot I posted here. I'll be running a 17.5t motor in the stock class. I'm just newer to onroad so I still got to get other people opinions on gearing.

Get a 96t spur for 17.5 stock and I would gear between 4.2 - 3.6 depending on track and driver. Get a fan for the motor too

Tamiya Subaru BR-Z. This one handles well if you don't want to run the NSX....

I checked again, I am using the right belts. Bag #4 is still intact. Come to think of it if I use the wrong belts the front would be way loose and the rear would be tight. This is not the case here as it seems that my front belt now is a bit tight.

I also checked the bulkheads and the cam marks are on the outside.

I loosen up the bulkheads, the motor mount, top deck without the the front and rear axles in place. No matter how carefully I fasten them the chassis would warp. Also the front I had to move the cams from the central position so that the belt tension is right. Still the chassis is wrapped, and I was mad.

What I finally did was to twist the whole thing the other way from the wrap. Curiously I found something slipped as I did no, and by chance after I twist it the wrap was fixed! I had a flat chassis! I then check the screws again and they were tight. Brute force finally did it for me

I was thinking of the Tamiya 84236 1 / 10RC Opel Calibra Spare Body Set or Tamiya SP.1514 1 / 10RC BMW M3 SPORT EVO or [84137] Volvo 850BTCC.

Made good progress on day 1 as well,
Only issue encountered was the Roche outdrives caused the spool to bind up a little, but no issues with the factory ones. Might have to get the alloy adjusters...

The Yokomo BD-189LB belts are very very smooth, it will be interesting to see if they have a shorter life span.

Has anyone successfully replaced the bearings in the steering bellcrank and center link? I was thinking about heating them up to get the bearings out.

I had to use a punch and hammer with it in my vise; they are in there really good! Good luck.

What is the new diff like? I know someone who put it together without any sanding of the gears, said it was a bit tight, any feedback, is sanding still needed?

If the small parts off the new diff, is the same as the old one, then u need to use a 3 mm armreamer on the small gears. Then u will have a ultra smooth diff
