Well, for now, do you have a lot of room for a bigger pinion with the 100 spur? Like, would a 56 pinion fit?

I do have some room. I'll took the spur assembly off and will take it to the hobby store tomorrow to see if any of the Spurs will fit. Else I'll try to go for a larger pinion. I'll try to get close to a 3.7 fdr as much as possible.

Also, sometimes I ran an 88 spur on my BD7 2013. On the 2013, there was not much room to go lower on your final drive with a 96 spur since the motor mount support was in the way of a bigger pinion. So I ran an 88 spur. You can try that to get you by.

Xray spurs work, I have between 96t and 92t on them. They are offset so you need to find which side is the one that places it in the center of the top deck so there's no rubbing with it.

For USGT 21.5, which spur and pinion combo will fit to get around 3.1 FDR?

I'm sorry but I don't remember, try it first with the numbers towards the right side. I only put two screws on it also.

Ive read a few post here where some guys say the short shocks with standard length springs have worked well for them. Just wondering why all the pro setups Ive looked at show standard shock towers and standard shocks. If there was a performace gain using the short shocks/towers why arent the pros using them ? All the new kits are coming with short shocks . Thanks in advance !

What I've heard from speaking to drivers here in Japan, the choice of damper is dependent on the racing class and track surface. Running modified you want to run kit dampers on carpet and asphalt surfaces. Short shocks work well for slower classes on carpet and on asphalt*. I will test short shocks out this weekend.

* This is dependent on the traction levels of the asphalt.

You will not see many modified drivers running the short shocks.

The thing to remember is every situation is different and you'll have to test it out and see.

Meen uses the short shocks pretty frequently, on both asphalt and carpet. For example, he used them at several ETS events and RROC earlier this year.

I think Ronald always uses the standard shocks, other than the AOC race at Yatabe last year.

Supposedly the guys who run nitro (such as Meen and Charlee P) prefer the short shocks, as they make the car more aggressive.

Right on, guess I'll try them out and see how they work out for me, though I dont have any problems with the standard shocks.

Hi,
Does anybody know if the Xray T4 shocks (short) will fit on a BD7 with short shocktowers ? Will it handle the same as with Yokomo short shocks?

Thx for help!
