I gear around 3.50 for our carpet track. I'd imagine low 3's to high 2's for a large outdoor track.

Yep, my local track is one of the largest in the UK, 60m straight, gearing at 3-ish for 17.5 blinky.

actually in years past... the "FINAL" version of a tub chassis usually ends with a TRF version.

the R version is usually just a version with some hopups already included.

the TA04 finally ended with the TRF version. Although that didnt hold true for the TA05 (MS would be the closest to a TRF version).

Hehe, I was thinking the same thing. Although my friend owns one and I could use it on his. He was gonna sell it, but buyer keeps backing out of his deals.

If you want to go a little bigger on the pinion, just grind the the threads on the screws (but not the part that threads into the motor, duhhh).

I did that to mine before I even built it!

Ashamed to say, have yet to run it. If weather holds out, Sunday is an all day test day.

Exotek has just released a new motor mount adapter that allows using a 64P pinion gear of up to 52T.With a 64 pitch spur gear of 72T,a final FDR of around 3.50 should be possible.I ordered one and I will see how it works since my TB04 is a VTA car.

I installed the Exotek spacer this weekend and it looks/ works great. I had already ground down the aluminum Tamiya spacer but the Exotek one is TCS legal.

I heard Tamiya would allow the modified spacer but the Exotek one is so pretty. Although it is probably coincidence but today at lunch time my temps were 5-10 degrees cooler than with the ground down aluminum one.
