Just one tip, if possible reverse the mounting of your damper tubes. They tend to pick up less tire dust and require fewer rebuilds when the plunger is mounted on the top podplate rather than out on the crossbrace.

Default spur

Are you guys replacing the stock 96t spur in the kit for something smaller? 96t seems to be a bit large compared to my CRC Xi 76T stocker.

All depends on the class you run. Mod is going to be different from 17.5 blinky.

On it.. THANKS!!

Yes, ran 76 last year for 13.5 and will this year for 17.5 with pinions ranging from 55-60.

CRC makes a 72 16-ball if you want to get down and dirty..

Just ordered my kit, kinda excited at the thought of running 1/12 again Just wish we could race on carpet down under

Can anyone confirm that the newer style servo's fit the new car? I had to run the bigger old style KO 951 on my 5.1 , but would like to run my sanwa 94971 if it mounts correctly
