So I am a born again on road guy, last car I had was a pro2 about 15 years ago. I am on the fence about this car because I do not really understand this gearing problem. Running a 13.5 am I going to have a problem with gearing? Is there a better car for parking lot racing?

Well, you can always use a lighter lipo pack than everybody else like the thunderpower tp4300-2spr65d(240grams) $89.99....

Yes, this car will be more than suitable for 13.5. The gearing issue is for those that need a really low FDR for some 17.5/21.5 blinky circuits. (Although at our track I use a FDR of 4 when doing blinky so it's all good).

Built the TB04 gear diff tonight. Not bad. Need to upgrade the internals though.

TAMIYA TB04 hop up gear diff parts:

54540 metal gears (I don't see it for sale yet)
54533 metal cross pins (available now)

Built and installed. Just not installed in a TB04 though, haha.

What did you do for the front so the ratios are the same?

Just got home from the Speedtech Race at Tamiya Raceway where I ran the TB04 for the first time. Overall, the car was consistent and very easy to drive with little to no setup work. I qualified third and finished third in a field of very fast racers with carbon cars as well as one friend who was absolutely in his own zip code, planet, galaxy, cluster, you name it...we were basically racing for second

Here's a video of our second qualifier. This was the third battery pack and second run in full race mode. For this run, I used a different set of tires, causing the car to develop a moderate under steer, and ended up losing a position by choking on the second to last lap...fail

We thought you were killing it in the main today before the bobble. The car looked good.

Thanks for the kind words fellas. I was pleasantly surprised with how easy the car was to drive considering the chassis was finished the night before With a car like that, it was a really fun run. That being said, Duy was really in another time zone. Sometimes you're the bug and other times your the windshield. His motor and chassis homework resulted in raising the bar in terms of fast laps for 17.5 at the Tamiya track with a 13.4 and averages in the mid to high 13s. That's insanely fast and his runs were impressive.

I was geared at 3.56 with an R1 motor and battery. I was originally planning on running a Reedy Mach 2 and TP battery at that ratio, but Steve from R1 works was gracious enough to lend me a few goodies to test. Thanks Steve for the rocket fuel. Holy crap it was fast

Here's a photo of the car before the main:
